Download ARK Survival Evolved Old Version: Tips and Tricks for Running the Game Smoothly


How to Download Ark Survival Evolved Old Version




Ark Survival Evolved is a popular survival game that lets you tame dinosaurs, craft items, build bases, and explore a vast open world. The game has been constantly updated since its release in 2015, adding new features, content, and improvements. However, some players may prefer to play an old version of Ark for various reasons. Maybe they want to experience the game as it was in its early days, or they want to avoid some changes or bugs that were introduced in later updates. Or maybe they just have nostalgia for a certain period of Ark's history.

Whatever your reason, playing an old version of Ark is possible, but not very easy. You can't just download an old version from the official website or Steam, as they only offer the latest version. You also have to be careful about where you get an old version from, as some sources may be illegal or unsafe. In this article, we will show you three methods to download Ark Survival Evolved old version legally and safely, and explain their benefits and drawbacks. Let's get started!


Methods to Download Ark Survival Evolved Old Version




Method 1: Use Steam Beta Branch




The first method is to use Steam's beta branch feature, which allows you to access different versions of a game that are not available on the main branch. In June 2020, the developers of Ark added a special branch called "timecapsule", which lets you play the 2015 version of Ark. This is the easiest and safest method to download Ark Survival Evolved old version, as you don't need any extra tools or files. However, it also has some limitations.


To use this method, you need to follow these steps:


  • Right-click on the Ark game in your Steam library and select "properties".



  • Select the "Beta" tab.



  • Locate "timecapsule" in the drop-down menu and select that.



  • Select close, patch Ark, and start punching trees!



The benefits of this method are:


  • You can play the original version of Ark as it was in 2015, with no TEK engrams, no fabricated snipers, compound bows, pump action shotguns or longneck rifles, and flyer speed can be increased.



  • You can switch back to the latest version anytime by opting out of the beta branch.



  • You don't need to download any additional files or tools.



The drawbacks of this method are:


  • You can only play the 2015 version of Ark, not any other versions.



  • You can only play on single player or on servers that use the timecapsule branch. You can't join any official or unofficial servers that use the latest version.



  • You may encounter some bugs or glitches that were fixed in later updates.



Method 2: Use DepotDownloader Tool




The second method is to use a tool called DepotDownloader, which allows you to download any version of a game from Steam's servers. This method is more flexible and powerful than the first one, as you can choose any version of Ark that you want, from the earliest alpha to the most recent update. However, it also requires more steps and technical knowledge, and it may not work for some versions.


To use this method, you need to follow these steps:

  • Download and install DepotDownloader from its GitHub page. You will need .NET Framework 4.7.2 or higher to run it.



  • Find the app ID and depot ID of Ark on SteamDB. The app ID is 346110 and the depot ID is 346111.



  • Find the manifest ID of the version of Ark that you want to download on SteamDB. The manifest ID is a long number that corresponds to a specific update of the game. For example, the manifest ID for the 2015 version of Ark is 1019067130.



  • Open a command prompt window and navigate to the folder where you installed DepotDownloader.



  • Type the following command: dotnet DepotDownloader.dll -app 346110 -depot 346111 -manifest -username -password . Replace with the manifest ID that you found in step 3, and replace and with your Steam credentials. You may also need to enter a Steam Guard code if you have it enabled.



  • Wait for the tool to download the files. It may take some time depending on your internet speed and the size of the files.



  • Once the download is complete, you will find a folder named "depots" in the same folder where you installed DepotDownloader. Inside it, there will be another folder named "346111", which contains the files of the old version of Ark.



  • Copy and paste the files from the "346111" folder to your Ark game folder, which is usually located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK. You may want to backup your original files before doing this, in case you want to revert to the latest version later.



  • Launch Ark from Steam and enjoy playing the old version!



The benefits of this method are:


  • You can download any version of Ark that you want, from any date or update.



  • You can play on single player or on servers that use the mods that you want to use in the main menu.



  • Start a new game or load an existing one with the mods enabled. You may need to adjust some settings or options to make the mods work properly.



  • Alternatively, you can find and join custom servers that recreate older versions of Ark. You can use the in-game server browser, Steam server browser, or other websites to find servers that suit your preferences. Some examples of servers that recreate older versions of Ark are: [ARK: Survival Evolved - The Island], which is a server that runs the mod of the same name.

  • [ARK: Survival Evolved - Primitive Plus], which is a server that runs the official Primitive Plus game mode.

  • [ARK: Survival Evolved - Classic Flyers], which is a server that runs the Classic Flyers mod.



  • Connect to the server and enjoy playing the old version of Ark with other players.



The benefits of this method are:


  • You can experience different versions of Ark with new features and content that are not available in the official game.



  • You can play online with other players who share your interest in playing an old version of Ark.



  • You can customize your game experience with various mods and settings.



The drawbacks of this method are:


  • You need to download and install mods or custom servers, which may take some time and space.



  • You may encounter some compatibility or performance issues when using mods or custom servers.



  • You may not be able to play an exact replica of an old version of Ark, as some mods or servers may have changes or additions that differ from the original game.



Conclusion




In conclusion, playing an old version of Ark Survival Evolved is possible, but not very easy. You have to use one of the three methods that we explained in this article, and each method has its own benefits and drawbacks. Depending on your preferences and goals, you may choose the method that suits you best. However, you should always be careful about where you get an old version from, and make sure that you are not breaking any laws or rules. Also, you should always backup your files and progress before switching versions, in case something goes wrong or you want to
