Updating to Newest Version?

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).
  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

I'm still on Synthesia 10.3, and the main reason is that I have simply not found any button to update the software. Also haven't found any help for this on the Synthesia website.

Do I have to simply download the Software again and then put in my code there again?

Plus: Is it possible to have both versions (the old version and the new version) installed on the same Computer at the same time?

Yep, just download the new version and install it on top of the old or grab the zip version and simply run it alongside the other. You shouldn't even need to type your code in again. :D

Hi Nicholas!

Thanks for the quick reply!

I was a bit afraid that I might lose any settings for the songs, but that wasn't the case - the zip Download worked perfectly!
So I can now retire version 10.3 :)

One more question: I should keep the Synthesia.exe in the same folder than the dll-Files, right?

Plus a suggestion: I really had trouble finding the download page on the website. Now I know, that for future updates I'll have to click on "Try it Free". Anyway, other users might face the same challenges. So I'd suggest to rename that button into "Try it Free or Update to newest version" or something like that.
Also, I'd suggest to add a short documentation to the download page (especially containing: differences between Installer and zip file, no song settings will get lost, Synthesia.exe respectively Synthesia folder can be placed anywhere on the drive, how to keep the older version besides the new one).
