I figured out a while ago that you can download any version of Roblox if you simply have its respective version hash (version-[hex]). You need to already have Roblox installed on your system to do this, though. The names of the files to download are located in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RobloxReg\ETags, and all you have to do is download the files from Roblox by going to setup.roblox.com/VERSIONHASH-FILENAMEINETAGS and then extracting them to their proper locations, leaving you with a perfect Roblox version folder.

Another thought: Does anyone know how to get a Roblox version hash from a Roblox version number (such as 0.49.1.466 (just an example, that's the current version at the time))?

Convert the version number to hex and remove decimals?

Take the hex version of the current ROBLOX version:
09a201d8e5f247c7

Anyway, I think the ROBLOX version hash and version number are completely unrelated.

How did you find the version #?

It's a love-hate relationship....

Here is a list of 50 version hashes. I tested them all with the setup website, they all work.

Took me about 45 minutes to find them all.

When people say "Google is your friend", they're not lying.

I searched this with Google: "Versions/version-" site:roblox.com

Then, I went through all the 23 pages of result, which took about 45 minutes. And I got a list of 50 different version hashes. I tested them all with the setup website.


What I am giving you here is basically 50 different versions of ROBLOX. Some are from 2012, 2011, 2010 and even 2009!

Here are some I think are from 2009, but there are many more that are from 2009 but that I just didn't bother checking:

version-0d6774cb80b24476
version-8774083982f848cb
version-15a4cb3898364c09
version-64c7eeb14eb047aa
version-e23a215c1d294fea

And here is the list of the 50 version hashes:

version-00abda3cb01c4176

Using this list I just posted, you can go back to 50 old versions of ROBLOX. Isn't that just great?

I knew you (yes, you specifically) would be interested in a such list.

Could anyone download the RobloxApp.zip of all of these and get the corresponding version number (from the properties or even from print(version()))?

I'd like that a lot, as it'd allow is to order them, so we can find the one we want.

Could be a little long, but I promise you that work wouldn't go to waste.

Oh, and here's the link to an old version of ROBLOX from 2008: http://c5.roblox.com/Setup_0.3.809.0.exe

Perhaps there are similar links that could be found? This one is from the old installer, since it is still there, I suppose there are much more..

But how would we convert it from:


version-7344c3428f1546a4

To

http://c5.roblox.com/Setup_SOMENUMBERS.exe

Or do you just have to put in:

setup.roblox.com/version-7344c3428f1546a4

Because it doesn't work for me.....It just takes me to a XML file...With..

Wait a second.

Is it in the HostId of the XML file?

O_O

YES, OF COURSE, BUT.. HOW IN THE WORLD DID YOU GET THAT MUCH VERSIONS? O_O

@Anaminus

Thank you a lot! Did you do it manually or did you use some automated program?



This list can be extremly helpful. Mainly for history. You can know exactly on which version the admins added this or that.

And it can also be useful if you want to use old ROBLOX features.

@Vitouliss14

The link to c5.roblox.com I posted is an EXTREMLY old version of ROBLOX.

It's an installer, it's not like the new system. It's from back when they still used InstallShield, before I even joined ROBLOX..

Back then, there wasn't even a "version-blahblah" or anything, it was just an installer that installed ROBLOX to Program Files.

The new "version-blablah" system is different.

One of the useful features of that ooold IDE is that you can import LDraw files with it.

Thanks for writing out my whole name I appreciate it.

And also thanks for explaining it to me.

"One of the useful features of that ooold IDE is that you can import LDraw files with it."

I think it got removed because LEGO was going to sue them.....

LDraw wasn't made by LEGO.. Look at ldraw dot org: "LEGO® is a registered trademark of the LEGO Group, which does not sponsor, endorse, or authorize this site."

Oops sorry about that...Didn't read more about it and just assumed because it said: "for modeling Lego creations in 3D on a computer." I implyed LEGO made it.

But it's kind of sad James Jessiman died when LDraw was still being updated.
