Long faced the dup problem, which completely breaks the game in co-op and kills the motivation to play, the developer has not removed the bug for several years, and safe pirates with the old version cannot be found, had to find a workaround.
In fact, nothing complicated, so everyone can figure it out.
We will return the version 1.6, but absolutely any (Well, while she is in the cloud).
Step 1: Installing drivers and programs
We find such a sign (version does not matter, you can take a newer one), there, in column “Installers”, we choose the version that suits you.
Download in the same way, like the last.
Here, among these 3 files, we need to install “depotdownloader-2.4.4.zip”, version is also not important.
After that, how we unzipped the contents into a separate folder, go to the next step.
Step 2: Installing the old version itself
Press enter and open the console:
Next we write “dotnet DepotDownloader.dll -app 268750 -depot 268751 -manifest 4929923876853045082 -username @@@ -password ***”,
where @@@ – your login from Steam
*** – your steam password
If you have double authentication (steam guard), then by the next message we introduce it:
After these steps, you should start installing. If the installation froze on 4-5%, just wait, the installation keeps running.
When is it over, such a message should appear:
If you get an error(image below), then repeat this step from the beginning
The old version of the game will be installed in the program folder:
Step 3: Synchronization with Steam
What we need, to sync the old version with steam? Just download the game and delete all files from the game folder:
Then we throw it, what have installed:
Step 4: Examination
Choosing a resolution
Checking the version, in my case 1.6
