Using Steam to Download Previous Versions

Step by Step

  1. With Steam running, press Win+R and enter this URL: steam://nav/console (link).
  2. Enter the following command: download_depot <app_id> <depot_id> <manifest_id> (refer to the Reference tables below)
  3. The depot will begin downloading. You should receive a notification when the download is complete.

The depot will likely download to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\content\app_640820\depot_640821\ (or wherever Steam is installed)

Once downloaded, you can move the depot anywhere.

Syntax

download_depot <app_id> <depot_id> <manifest_id> [<delta_manifest_id>]
Parameter Required Description
app_id true the game's App ID
depot_id true the Depot ID corresponding to a content package (e.g., binaries, game assets)
manifest_id true the Manifest ID corresponding to a version of the content package
delta_manifest_id false the Manifest ID corresponding to a previous version of the content package

If the delta_manifest_id argument is not omitted, Steam will download only the differences between the target manifest and delta manifest.

Example

Download the game content:

download_depot 640820 640821 6741447117850778077

Optional

Change the download path

You cannot change the path to which the depot downloads; however, you can "trick" Steam into downloading depots wherever you want using Junction Points.

What are Junction Points? Junction Points are a type of symbolic link unique to the NTFS file system.

If Steam was installed on your C: drive, and you wanted to download the depot to D:, you would do the following:

  1. Delete the app_640820 folder, if any, in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\content.
  2. Create a folder on D: named app_640820, such as D:\app_640820.
  3. In a cmd shell, type: mklink /J "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\content\app_640820" "D:\app_640820"
  4. Then, run the download_depot command in the Steam Console.

If you do not know how to open the cmd shell, press Win+R, type cmd, and press Enter.
