    Guide: How-To download almost every past Steam version of 7 Days To Die from Steam

    In the past I've made comments about how I've saved nearly every version that has been on Steam.
    Many have expressed an interest in also being able to build such a collection but since those versions were in the past it was believed to not be possible.
    Recently I was shown this thread (related to another game): https://www.reddit.com/r/Steam/comme..._of_a_game_on/
    Some additional information on the Steam Console can be found at (including downloading apps/games and DLC): Steam Community Guide on Steam Console

    The summary of that thread is that as long as you own a game and the game's depots are all still available, it is possible to find the correct information and download any version of the game you want that has been released on Steam.
    So I've taken that information and compiled a list of the details necessary to download almost every past version of 7 Days To Die released to Steam. I've done this only for public branch releases (not experimental versions).

    Data Sources Used:
    https://steamdb.info/app/251570/depots/
    https://steamdb.info/app/251570/history/

    I did NOT use the manifests page under the depots pages and instead used the history as it was more accurate & had a longer retention (although what a pain loading & scrolling, the page was 8MB fully loaded).

    Depot ID Values Available? Description
    251571 YES Windows 32 Bit (NOTE: this includes both 32bit & 64bit, just determines starting install mode)
    251573 NO ??? History says this was: Mac (NOTE: attempts to download from this depot respond 'missing license' due to the depot having been disabled. As such MAC Alpha 5 to Alpha 6.4 cannot be downloaded)
    251574 NO ??? History says this was: Windows (NOTE: attempts to download from this depot respond 'missing license' due to the depot having been disabled. As such Windows Alpha 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, 6.3, and 6.4 cannot be downloaded)
    251575 NO ??? History says this was: Mac (NOTE: attempts to download from this depot respond 'missing license' due to the depot having been disabled. As such MAC Alpha 5 to Alpha 6.4 cannot be downloaded)
    251576 YES Windows 64 Bit (NOTE: this includes both 32bit & 64bit, just determines starting install mode)
    251577 YES Mac
    251578 YES Linux Universal

    Here are Release dates, version info (can be matched to the Version History/Release Notes thread), and then the manifests that were available for that version.

    To download a particular version all that is necessary is the DepotID (beginning of the line) and the ManifestID (19 digit value at the end of the line).
    Example to download Linux Alpha 8.7 from 2014-07-09 - the DepotID would be 251578 and the ManifestID would be 7891736396000419297
    The formatted command would be: download_depot 251570 251578 7891736396000419297

    Since I was missing the original Windows Alpha 5 release from December 13, 2013 I decided to test using that version.
    So I open the Steam Console in the Steam Client: steam://nav/console Linked: steam://nav/console
    Then I paste in the line:
    download_depot 251570 251571 8674858241122065491
    The Steam client will show no progress, but if you check your downloads tab you will see the network activity.
    Once the download completes you'll see a line like below telling you where it placed the files.
    Code:
    Depot download complete : "G:\Games (Steam)\steamapps\content\app_251570\depot_251571" (339 files, manifest 8674858241122065491)
    After which I renamed the folder 'depot_251571' to 'Alpha 5.0' and moved it to be with the rest of my collection, cleared all registry and save entries, then ran the app from the folder to test. Working Alpha 5.0, delivered from Steam in 2019.
    That is it.

    Fantastic!

    Just for the access to Classic Horde Mode alone this is an amazing resource!

    Which versions do you consider to have "Classic Horde Night"?

    I should have said Horde Mode sorry. Horde Mode was an alternate game from the main game that was almost pure tower defense. Multiple airdrops would bring supplies, food, and weapons during the day and you would frantically build in preparation for the waves of zombies at night. the waves would get tougher each night. I believe it was removed Alpha 8 so you would have to download Alpha 7 in order to play it.

    So if I want Alpha 7.11 I see this line from above.

    251576/manifests/public: 4644625435838178353 › 6548888709412020723

    So do I paste the following into the command console?

    download_depot 251570 251576 6548888709412020723

    Correct!

    After which you'll see something like this:
    Code:
    ] download_depot 251570 251576 6548888709412020723
    Downloading depot 251576 (710 MB) ... 
    Depot download complete : "G:\Games (Steam)\steamapps\content\app_251570\depot_251576" (426 files, manifest 6548888709412020723)
    You may see other lines too, depending on what else you do in the Steam client while waiting for the download to complete.

    EDIT: to be clear the path it places the files for you will depend on where your copy of Steam is installed.

    It'd be nice if the Pimps made Alphas1-4 available this way also. That was before I knew about the game, so I haven't ever played 'em.

    That may not be possible since the pre-Steam versions used a backend auth to their webservices (if I recall correctly).

    I do wonder if they can restore the missing Depots though and if they did that would it allow those few missing Steam versions to be downloaded.

    Could someone please give a short synopsis for each of the major stable branches of each Alpha? Just the major stuff that made each alpha special. For example, which alpha had the best cave system or which was the last before the graphics update. Any insight would be highly appreciated. Thank you kindly.

    BTW, Thanks Red! Love using your UI and now this. You're GREAT!
