This is just for reference and not recommended to do so. You won’t get any updates on the old branch.
I take no responsibility for whatsoever. Make sure to backup your save file.
As the HD version is currently only supporting 3 Languages (more to be added later), some might feel betrayed because the game was listed in their native language when they’ve bought it.
So here’s how to change to the old build (which won’t get updated, so either wait until your language gets supported, learn english, or stick with an outdated version of the game which won’t get bugfixes)
Community Mod Succuberry was so kind to share the information on how to switch to the old build, but i guess that information will be soon lost in the steam discussion so I’ve thought it might be good to backup that knowledge somewhere.
Backup save file
Open up windows explorer and go to
Now the easiest way to backup your save files and your presets and everything is just to zip the ‘L2Games’ folder and copy it somewhere else. Afterwards just delete the L2Games folder.
The Reason why we backup is because the save files are probably not compatible with the old/new game version. Backup works for both versions the same way. Just un-zip the folder in the same location to restore.
Switching to the old version
To switch, right click on the Game and choose Properties> betasand select before_overhaul – The build that was before HD Overhaul.
Now steam will update the game.
Usually Updating takes longer then just reinstalling because steam will try to merge files. So i would recommend to pause the update, unistall and then reinstall the game – thats just way faster.
There is also a test branch available, but its probably unstable and not a good choice for a daily grind.
Oh and by the way, if you can read this guide than you could also play the current build in english 😉
