Running online DRM games offline guide

Postby DosFreak » 2018-12-11 @ 12:32

The below is intended for those who purchased games from Steam but cannot play them due to developer, publisher and Valve incompetence, ignorance or malice.
Do not ask for cracks or steam emulator software.
Do not post links to copyrighted software.

The below is a list of what I am currently using to play Steam games offline. I no longer purchase or play Denuvo infected software as of a couple of months ago so you won't see new Denuvo games in this guide unless submitted by someone else.

Issue with Comfy Gui smartsteamu on XPx32 caused by smartsteamuloader x64 being executed. Rename to x64 and rename 32bit ver to same name to fix.

What I have tested for SteamCMD so far. SteamCMD doesn't recognize my already downloaded Steam games so would have to download everything all over again also the below relies on Steam maintaining TLS 1.2 compatibility. You're better off downloading on another machine with Steam and copying over.

WINDOWS INSTRUCTIONS
https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wik ... MD#Windows

1. Download
STEAMCMD https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/ ... eamcmd.zip
SteamCMD-GUI https://github.com/DioJoestar/SteamCMD- ... ag/3.1.0.2
2. Extract contents of SteamCMD to c:\steamcmd
3. Extract contents of SteamCMD-GUI to C:\steamcmd\GUI
4. Execute SteamCMD.exe
5. SteamCMD will update itself
6. Once SteamCMD is done updating it will be at a prompt.
7. Quit SteamCMD
8. Execute SteamCMD GUI.exe and point it to your SteamCMD path
9. Click "Add Custom" and type in the name of your game and the app id
9. Enter username and password
10. For "Server Path" use C:\SteamCMD\steamapps
11. Click Update/Install to download

WINDOWS XP ONLY
*If you receive the following error message in SteamCMD and you're using XP then TLS 1.2 is not enabled in XP

Waiting for user info...Crypto API failed certificate check, error flags 0x00000
008 for '/businessCategory=Private Organization/jurisdictionC=US/jurisdictionST=
Washington/serialNumber=602 290 773/C=US/ST=Washington/L=Bellevue/O=Valve Corp/C
N=store.steampowered.com'


SteamCMD uses the IE proxy settings and TLS 1.2 to connect to the Internet

Import the following registry file to install XP POS updates:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\POSReady]
"Installed"=dword:00000001

Import the following registry file to enable TLS1.1 and TLS 1.2 in IE8:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\CRYPTO\TLS1.2]
"OSVersion"=-

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\AdvancedOptions\CRYPTO\TLS1.1]
"OSVersion"=-

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
"SecureProtocols"=dword:00000a80

Install the following updates:
http://download.windowsupdate.com/c/msd ... 40ce3d.exe
http://download.windowsupdate.com/d/msd ... 58fd07.exe

If you cannot connect to https://store.steampowered.com after installing the above then SteamCMD will not work

WINDOWS XP
Prevent Steam from updating. The following assumes offline mode working forever and no 3rd party DRM. You will be unable to go online since Steam will insist on updating which will break the client (unless someone modifies steam or a wrapper is created).

1. Create a file called steam.cfg in the root of the steam directory
2. Place the following in it:
BootStrapperInhibitAll=enable
BootStrapperForceSelfUpdate=disable
ForceOfflineMode=enable

That's for games that require the registry. In the case of the newer Elder Scrolls games and Fallouts they need it for the launcher. So for those I export the registry key to .reg and save it in the game folder. I'm thinking the above will eventually be rolled in my compatibility list but if not at least another Google spreadsheet.

Latest steam client non-functional with latest steam update on XP and Vista. Either use the workarounds in the first post or use an older version of the steam client. 2-3-2019

We don't want the trouble that brings either the type of people looking for such software or publisher and devs complaining but I see no issue with mentioning the software especially since the publishers, devs and Valve are leaving people out in the cold when it would be very easy to fix on their end. The first post is more than enough to find what's needed.
