If you're sick and tired of Bethesda pushing out updates for the Creation Club that affects the FO4 .exe that breaks your mods and your version of F4SE, this guide will show how to revert back to a previous or preferred version. This will be a step-by-step written guide for those who can't or don't want to watch the video that is provided below. This guide is mainly for Steam users, as it REQUIRES Steam to perform some functions that otherwise I don't think would be possible without it.

 

(This post is pretty much a written guide of a video which will be posted below this guide. The video is outdated but the tutorial itself is pretty much the same.)

 

 

 

 

Before we begin, you will need to be able to access Steam's Console. If you haven't done this before, to do this:

 

1. Open Steam. Steam should appear on your taskbar below your screen.

 

2. Right-click on the Steam icon on your taskbar, then right-click on the other Steam icon.

 

3. Select Properties.

 

4. In the Steam Properties window "Shortcut" tab then in the "Target" box should have a file path where your Steam .exe is located in quotes. Add a space next to the file path after the last quote and type in "-console" (without quotes).

 

5. Hit Apply and OK then restart and reopen Steam. You will know you did this right when you see "Console" to the right of your Steam name.

 

OR

 

1A. Press the Window + R on your keyboard (alternatively click on the Start button on the taskbar, then type in "Run", without quotes, in the windows search bar).

 

2A. In the "Open:" bar in the window that pops up, type in "steam://open/console" (without quotes). This should bring up the Console menu in Steam.

 

 

 

 

To begin the actual guide now that you have access to the Steam Console:

 

1. Open "Notepad" or some program that you can write down notes with. 

 

2. Write this down and keep this up for later:

 

download_depot

 

App ID:

Depot ID:

Manifest ID:

 

 

3. Open the Console menu in Steam then STOP! You will not need to do anything with this just yet. Proceed to Step 4...

 

4. Go to this website (https://steamdb.info/). On the top left of the page is a search bar. In the search bar, search for Fallout 4.

 

5. On the next page, down below in the search results, look for "Fallout 4", then look for the AppID to the left. Copy and paste 377160 into the AppID section of your notepad.

 

6. Click on the AppID number of Fallout 4.

 

7. Down below you will be met with a Store Prices section. 

 

8. To the left of the Store Prices and currency listings, there will some tabs, look for "Depots" in the tabs sections and click on it.

 

9. In the Depots, look below for "Fallout 4 exe" and to the left of it is the Depot ID. 

 

10. Copy and paste 377162 into your Depot ID section in your notepad.

 

11. Click on the DepotID number of Fallout 4 exe.

 

12. On the next page, there is another tabs section. Look for and click on the "Manifests" tab. Scroll below and you will see a "Previous Manifests" section and below that are sections of three, titled (from left to right) "DATE", "RELATIVE DATE", and "MANIFEST ID". 

 

13. You will need the Manifest ID, but in order to find the Manifest ID of the exe version that you need or want, you have to have to find out the date of when the version of the exe was released. Dates September 2nd and October 1st were provided as the same game version (v1.7.15.0), I do not know why that is. Here is a list of the game versions, their dates, and their corresponding Manifest IDS as provided by SteamDB that I checked myself:

August 29, 2018 - 5003114936801478504 - Game Version 1.10.111.0

 

 

14. This next step is under the assumption that your Fallout 4 game has been updated to (the latest version). But you do not want the latest version. Below the latest version are the previous versions. Find the date that corresponds with the game version you are looking for to find the Manifest ID in the box to the right. 

 

15. Copy and paste the Manifest ID into your Manifest ID section in your notepad.

 

16. Now go back to the Console menu of Steam.

 

17. Type in the following text (without quotes) download_depot. Add a space.

 

18. Copy and paste the AppID number 377160 next. Add a space.

 

19. Copy and paste the Depot ID number 377162 next. Add a space.

 

20. Copy and paste the Manifest ID number of the game version you need and then hit enter and then it will proceed to download the preferred game version exe then STOP! Do not close the Console or Steam right away.

 

21. In the Console, it will show you that the download is complete and it will show you where it downloaded it at. This location may or may not be the same for everyone, but to show where it downloaded for me, here's what it will look like: 

 

\Steam\steamapps\content\app_377160\depot_377162

 

22. Inside the (depot_377162) folder is where the exe is located. Drag and drop inside the root Fallout 4 folder where the Fallout 4 exe is at and replace when asked.

 

23. AND YOU'RE DONE!!!    =)

That's a lot of work.

 

I used the previous EXE posted by another Steam member in Dropbox. First, I set Steam to only update Fallout 4 when I launch the game—which I never do, because I use the Fallout 4 Script extender to start the game, instead. I backed up and replaced the new EXE with a copy of the older one. No more warnings. I'm playing the same version of the game I did a few days ago, and I can wait patiently for everyone to update their mods before I have to update, myself.

thanks took me about 3 minutes to follow this guide and revert back. I also like how you have made it with the thought that people may use it for other games rather than just telling us to copy download_depot 377160 377162 1577971768113543910 into the console.

 

But yeah for all the impatient ones all you need to do is copy "download_depot 377160 377162 1577971768113543910" into the console and hit enter then go find the fallout.exe that it downloads (it tells you where it is) and replace the current .exe with the downloaded one. This will revert your game back to 23rd May 2018 update. Very easy not hard at all.

 

cheers

It was a lot of work writing this, not doing it. This is like a <3min process to do (if even that). Of course, you could always backup your exe, but this guide is mainly for people who either don't get the chance to backup their files and don't have backups and/or people who are starting fresh with a new installation, whether it may be a reinstall or they bought the game for the first time.

I tried the steam console revert method and even after copying over the old exe from june the game is broken, I can't load a save; I can't make a new game, I can't open the mod list either, it hangs on load with a loop of the power armour video in the background.

I had this happen to me last time. I even asked Beth to help and what they said is "due to my computer not meeting the bare minimum as of the last update they are unable to help me." It broke everything, I tried every thing I could think of. What helped was whipping out everything FO4 related, from the ini files, to the game directory. Your computer as of this moment doesn't meet the minimum anymore, sadly.

Try undeleting the game, disable every mod you have, and then delete any FO4 folder from the ini files to directory.
