    You see I got kinda annoyed about how 0.20 has so many bugs and so few hotfixes. And some Youtuber named FrIzErIs accidentally updated from 0.19.4 and a lot of mods are broken. And I wanna help him get back to 0.19.4. WhyBeAre made a throwback video, and I wonder how he did it. I'd really like to get me and FrIz back to 0.19.4. Can someone please help me?

    On Steam there is an option called "Show update history" or something and I think it could be possible to download an old update there. I'm not sure though, I can't check at the moment.

    That's in the beta section. Right-Click on BeamNG on steam, go to properties>betas and select the DX9 version.

    Thanks! Just a random question, how do I make my profile a GIF? Whenever I downloaded a GIF and uploaded it to beamng.com, it always showed up as a still image.

    Only specific resolutions work for some reason. 231 x 192 and 190 x 180 are two of them. You can use an online gif-resizer to change the resolution.

    It worked! Thanks dude!
    Edit 1: I still can't figure out how to download the beta or go through update history on Steam.....
    Edit 2: I found the update history but I don't know how to download older versions and where to do the right clicking and stuff for the DX9 beta.

    There should be a beta tab in the properties.

    What do you mean by "properties" and where can I find it? Sorry, I don't go on Steam often.

    Right click on BeamNG.drive in the steam library and then click properties.

    I got in the properties menu, but when I go over to "betas", it says that I have to enter a code and when I click "update history" I can't seem to figure out how to download any older versions (like the very old version YBR is using in the video above).

    There should be a drop-down menu there.

    There is, but it says "NONE" and I can't access it.

    When I do nothing happens, like it won't become brighter or anything. On another note, how do I download an older version? Thanks for all the help.

    CryEngine versions were never released to the public.
