How to get a specific place version (without having to use Roblox's version history)

As you may know, Roblox’s place version page needs you to click for a long time to get to a specific place version you need.

I wanted to find the first place version of my game to see how it looked like then and while I was looking for a efficient way I discovered this method.

Step 1

First, you need to put this link into the browser.

For {placeId}, you put the ID of the place you want to get its version from and for {version}, you would need to put the version ID you want, for example if you wanted the 5th version of your game, put 5.{placeId}&version={version}

Step 2

Once you went to the link, you will be greeted with a JSON table.

Paste the circled link, and put it into your browser. It will make you download a random file.

Step 3

Once that file is downloaded, on its name add a “.rbxl” and once you done that, you will be able to open the place and now you have your desired place version.

Alternatively you could use{assetId}/version/{version}. is quite well documented, see here.
There’s also /v2/assets/batch where you can get multiple at once.


I thought of putting the documentation for it, but it required a lot of parameters for some reason.
