download links for old versions are wrong

Post by Crass Spektakel » 22 Jul 2019 22:44

Recently I tried to download an old version of OpenTTD so I browsed openttd.org but all links to old versions end in https://www.openttd.org/downloads/opent ... atest.html which is obviously the wrong page. EG if I go to https://www.openttd.org/news/2018/04/01 ... 1-8-0.html and then click on download I land on https://www.openttd.org/downloads/opent ... atest.html instead of https://www.openttd.org/downloads/opent ... 1.8.0.html

An old forum topic mentioned an URL for 0.5.2 which was still working so I played around with the URL and found that you can still reach old downloads though not through the official links but my manually editing the URL, e.g. https://www.openttd.org/downloads/opent ... 1.8.0.html still works but isn't linked anywhere, not even in the "1.8.0 stable release" topic.

Bugged? Or did I look in the wrong place? Is there an official overview of all older versions?

there was a website redesign, which changed some things around, so the old links likely don't exist anymore.

you could open a ticket at https://github.com/OpenTTD/website and maybe someone might look at how to handle/redirect these old links
You might not exactly be interested in Ferion, but if you are, have fun :)
