Then you’ve accessed the Console

What you Need pt.2

Steam actually disabled the feature to download older versions, so we need a little program that enables it again.

github.com – https://github.com/fifty-six/zig.SteamManifestPatcher/releases/download/v3/SteamDepotDownpatcher.exe

It only modifies the memory, not actual steam files, so you need to run it again if you want to do it again after steam restarts.

After it downloads, Double click on it and it will run.

The Next part happens really fast

Once it runs, you should see a command box pop up

Then you should see this:
