yesterday I had to upgrade to the newest version 1.23 public Beta. I can't start the game, cause it is instandly crashing. Some people here said, we have to downgrade, but how? I tried via Steam, and ETS2 said "these accounts are not compatible with the current game version. Please upgrade..."

Thank you !

Did you already ran the profile on version 1.23? That may be the case, it's sometimes isn't possible to downgrade a profile which has already run on a higher version of ETS2.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.

look in the euro truck 2 folder under documents, you find there is *edit should be. a profile backup from 1.22, verify its there, then move your current profiles from the profiles folder and put the contents of the 1.22 backup there, that worked for me, i also made a verify local content from steam with the 1.22 compatibility mode enabled, maybe that also did something

Open Steam > Libary > ETS2 > Right click > Properties > Betas > choose: temporary_1_22 - 1.22.x for incompatible mods

Thank you very much for this. Steam updated to 1.25.1 and broke my promods and now my promods works again.

Now the promods works with ets2 1.25 but not with 1.26.

That is correct as there is no 1.26 compatible version yet.
