Unsupported Game Version detected

If you get the error shown below, this article will help you downgrade or upgrade your game to the correct version of American Truck Simulator or Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Unsupported Game Version

Whenever American Truck Simulator or Euro Truck Simulator 2 is updated by SCS Software you will need to downgrade your game until TruckersMP pushes an update to support the new version.
Updating TruckersMP to the new version may take some time, we also do not have an average waiting time for the new updates. Once we support the newest version, it will be posted on our socials and our Discord.

To upgrade/downgrade ATS or ETS2 you need to open Steam. After doing that follow these steps:
You can also watch this video on how to downgrade your game.

  1. Open your Library
  2. Right-click on American Truck Simulator / Euro Truck Simulator 2
  3. Open Properties...
  4. Head over to Betas

=> Here you need to find the correct version. If TruckersMP is fully updated and supports the new version, you need to select "None".

For ETS2 select: None
For ATS select: None


-> If SCS updated the game you need to find the latest supported version by TruckersMP. You can find that version in the error message when you try to launch ATSMP / ETS2MP. After you know the supported version, try to search for that version in your Steam Settings.

Note: Downgrading your game isn't always possible. We recommend disabling automatic updates for both ATS and ETS2.

If your game already has the correct version - Old Launcher

  3. After the Properties window has opened click on Local Files tab and press Browse Local Files...

Step 2

  1. Click Start -> Run (or WIN+R)
  2. Type regedit and hit enter
  3. Follow the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TruckersMP
  4. Double click on InstallLocationETS2
