0.5.1, 0.5.0, and 0.4.0: lul u have no luck on getting these theyregone forevr lolololo

I couldn't find any earlier versions, but this is already way back! Bye! :D
Also, this post is not only for now, but for the future when these later versions become unavailable to download on the Synthesia website.
I will check on this post every month to update it when and if new versions of Synthesia are released.

Let me know if some of the older (e.g. 0.6.5) installers don't work.

Sorry about the versions past 0.8.1, they can't run. I don't know how to fix this. They might run on your system, but they didn't run on mine because of some sort of "this program is being blocked from running because it could be a virus" kind of stuff. (this problem is fixed now, so don't worry)

Before 0.8.1, I wasn't code-signing Synthesia yet. That's the reason for the warnings. There are usually ways to get around that SmartScreen warning.

Also: your 0.8.2 link is broken. :D

Well, now I know how to get the links to the released versions of the game. I didn't know that the 0.8.2 link was broken. XD! I tested it, and it worked, so...

When I tried to generate the link to Synthesia 9 and 0.6.6, after i posted it and tried to download it, it said something like: This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
<Error>
<Code>AccessDenied</Code>
<Message>Access Denied</Message>
<RequestId>CF2C88D534F116D5</RequestId>
<HostId>NzoFq+OxhKFDgwqYfDcjeXoysKeBOUGdWe1HVcBnFyt1rFMOFi9U10dNDO/mfOOExc+zPdhVJCA=</HostId>
</Error>


Since I can, I'll just remove the links. Just in case you still wanted them to look at, here they are: cdn.synthesia.app/files/Synthesia-9.0
cdn.synthesiagame.com/files/old_Synthesia-0.6.6

https://cdn.synthesia.app/files/Synthesia-9.0.zip works just fine for me. (Were you missing the .zip extension?)

Otherwise, there was never a 0.6.6 version, so that's why the link doesn't work. :D 0.6.0 through 0.6.5 and then to 0.7.0.

Nope, those predate the CDN links and aren't available from us officially anymore.

Those early versions were originally titled "Piano Hero". Activision sent us a cease and desist letter to change the name (to avoid confusion with their "Guitar Hero" trademark).

In addition to changing the name, we agreed not to make those versions available anymore.

Oh, I get it now. It would make sense that you would remove them from the CDN because of use of the name "Piano Hero" in confusion to the Guitar Hero™ series. Sorry about those replies, by the way.

I didn't know they threatened you, I'm sorry to hear that, I'm pretty sure they didn't have a case and were just harassing you.

I think he was talking about the cease and desist from Activision. All of that was a very long time ago. And in a way, I should almost thank them: the news coverage it generated at the time was sort of what got the tiny snowball rolling down the mountain. It's only picked up speed and grown since then.

Yeah, in a way. I understand why you would thank them. It got the tiny snowball rolling down the mountain, like you said.

So as a matter of etiquette, if nothing new has happened or been posted, creating another post (sometimes called a "bump") asking for more replies is often a nuisance.

I've deleted something like 7 or 8 of your bump posts now that you've made despite no new information since May. Because it's a "here's some information with links" style post rather than something that needs a lot of back and forth discussion, I'm not sure what you're hoping to get besides a stream of "Thanks for the links!" replies. And even those would be low on information, not adding much to the "conversation" so I'm not sure how you'd even reply besides a steady stream of "you're welcome!".

Also: you're not getting reprimanded or banned or whatever. Obviously you have good intentions and a lot of excitement. Those are good things. I'm just hoping you'll direct those things into something new instead of waiting for someone to reply here. :)

Okay then. I just don't want to feel.. forgotten.
I'm okay with any reply. It doesn't have to be a conversation, it just has to be any sort of sentence or message. Like you mentioned, a stream of thanks for the links kind of replies is perfectly good.
