hello

pcgamingwiki says cs source is drm free

while it isn't true

if you try launching a singleplayer game without steam, you get an error saying cd key authentication invalid for internet servers

fix what you say please

Oh I forgot about that list. And do those commands not work? Can't say I ever tried them.

they do work, they make the game launch without steam, but what's the point when you get an error starting a bot game

they mention creating a lan server via console which I tried using both sv_lan 0; map cs_assault and sv_lan 1; map cs_assault

none worked

both showed me the cd key authentication invalid for internet servers

CS:Source is one of the games that has been extensively updated after release and which focuses on online multiplayer aspect, so there is possibility that the game was updated at some point to make commands to play without steam stop working. 

 

Haven't tried them myself either, but if nobody can give any input I can try this out when I have extra free time.

You can start looking for him on google then.

 

Does at least tutorial start then? Otherwise I fear I might have to post yet another deep philosophy thought on our "guidelines" thread.

so I scanned the hl2.exe and the drm is steam

but that's not the thing since it can be ran without steam using the aforementioned commands, but it fails to launch even a singleplayer game

sv_lan should be 1, just fiy. Also try sv_secure 0

so I'm supposed to create a server.cfg file in the cfg folder, and make it look like this:

sv_lan 1

sv_secure 0

?

alright so I created the config, before that I verified the integrity of the game cache and all, but it didn't download anything and nothing worked

when I type in the console sv_lan it says it is 1 and that authentication and other things are disabled

which apparently is bullshit, but hey this is valve right

they are themselves bullshit

I'd give a hundred dollars to anybody who would find a way to play the game without third party/player made mods/tools

seriously I'm desperate for it, real badly
