Downgrading and Upgrading American Truck Simulator Version



Whenever American Truck Simulator gets an update from SCS you need to downgrade the game version in order to use TruckersMP, because TruckersMP doesn't have support for the latest version right away. How soon TMP gets an update depends on how many changes there are in the new update. On average it takes less than 5 days. In this guide I will explain with text and GIF's how to downgrade ATS to supported version and how to upgrade it after TMP update.




Supported version:




Downgrading American Truck Simulator Version

(The latest version supported)*




 1. Open Steam, go to LIBRARY and GAMES.




 2. Click American Truck Simulator 





 3. Check first that are there any unsupported DLC mentioned below in the Unsupported DLC section of this guide. You need to uninstall the unsupported DLC before you can install the supported version. Uninstall the unsupported DLC by unticking them in the DLC list.



(Note: Nevada is not unsupported. The GIF is just an example of uninstalling DLC.)



 4. Right click on American Truck Simulator and open Properties





 5. When the Properties window is open click on BETAS tab




 6. In BETAS tab select [version will be added here when needed]


  [GIF will be added here when needed]



 7. Now it should be downloading the version. You can now close the Properties window and wait for the download to finish.





 8. When the download has finished you're good to go. Happy trucking!

The latest version supported: No need to downgrade to the previous ATS version.

Downgrade to supported version: The latest version of ATS is unsupported. Follow the guide to downgrade to supported version.





Upgrading American Truck Simulator Version




 Follow steps 1, 4 and 5 shown in downgrading guide above, but in BETAS tab select NONE - Opt out of all beta programs. Remember to reinstall any DLC you may have had to uninstall when you downgraded the game version.

Supported DLC


All the DLC packs and map expansions excluding unsupported DLC mentioned above.
