EDIT: Figured it out! Check my 3rd comment for the solution
I've recently become interested in trying to speedrun 'Insurgency'. For these speedruns I require an older version of the game, one that has a lot of bugs still in it.
To try to get that old version, I've googled and found the following tutorial:
Using this tutorial, I've downloaded both the game itself (https://steamdb.info/depot/222881/) and the Windows specific files (https://steamdb.info/depot/222882/) using the following commands in the Steam Console:
download_depot 222880 222881 
download_depot 222880 222882 
(Note that the manifest of these are versions from 2014)
I've waited for the confirmation that they were fully downloaded, then backed my Insurgency folder up. Then, I've copied them into the now empty Insurgency folder in *\steamapps\common\insurgency2 and tried launching the game both by clicking on both .exe's and launching via Steam in offline mode (to avoid updates).
When the game started, however, I noticed that the version of the game was the latest, even though I've clearly put in the right manifest number.
Checking the game files I had just downloaded also showed me that I had downloaded maps which were made between 2014 and 2017 (dry_canal and station for example), the files of the maps which were not new but were updated between 2014 and 2017 was also the same as the filesizes in my backup.
Now the question:
What am I doing wrong? Is it even possible to get an Insurgency version of 2014?
This is the first time I'm trying to get an earlier version of a Steam game so I'm quite new to this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The manifest numbers seem to be wrong
I figured it out!
The problem were the '[' and ']', I thought I had to use them because of how the tutorial was laid out, but apparantly you shouldn't use them
