I was trying to download the older versions of the game in the release archive section because i wanted to watch very old demos of players playing the specialist many years ago :P but i noticed that the links of the oldest versions doesnt work and the oldest one lead to a porn website.

I have removed the bad download links from the release archive webpage. Thanks for alerting us!

The earliest version you can still download from the archive is thus 0.9.22.

So currently, I'm afraid the only reliable way to play very old versions is to get the source code from our repository and compile Hedgewars yourselves.

We have written down how this works in BuildingHedgewars, but it's not a simple task.

Hi, I am a Hedgewars developer. Smile

hey wuzzy thanks for replying. I managed to download 0.9.17 and 0.9.19 through the wayback machine but the version i need the most is 0.9.18 and i cant find it. Will the links in the release archive be fixed or the only way is building it?

Nvm i managed to get even 0.9.18 but still having the links in the download page would be ideal i guess.
