Like the title says, this topic is about older versions in the downloads section. When you click on the "Older Versions" menu in download, it only goes back to Synthesia 9. Some people like me want to have older versions of the game, and for some of us, Synthesia 9 isn't far back enough. So, could you (the moderators & admins) add options to download versions to at least 0.8.3? Because I really like that version. :)

At least for development versions, this works.

To find the revision numbers, check the Previous Development Updates topic list.

I don't understand what you mean. I don't know how to manipulate the URL to get build 0.8.3.

But, are you sure it's the final version? because I found it in development updates... If so, could you send me a link or put an attachment of the final version?

Try this one: https://cdn.synthesia.app/files/old_Synthesia-0.8.3.zip

I added the "old_" prefix to the filenames to break the links used by software aggregation websites to ancient versions of the app. They have (had?) a habit of delivering old software to people, which generated a lot of extra support email back in the day. The good news is that most of those vultures seem to have moved on to the mobile space now.

Thank you for the download!!! I used to think that cdn.synthesia.app didn't work because on a website called rootdownload.com, their download link took you to cdn.synthesiagame.com/files/Synthesia-0.8.3-installer.exe. The IP address could not be found because it had the wrong name, and I tried downloading it about 2 weeks ago and it had the wrong name. Thank you for sharing that with me! I won't spread the info onto third-party websites, though. Also, clever trick to change the name just by a tiny bit so it's hard to reach by third parties.
