cs source IS NOT DRM FREE

Recommended Posts

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

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.

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

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

I mean it looks so fucking simple it loads everything but just as you would get in game it shows that authentication message

can't it be bypassed somehow

I wouldn't trust inputting more commands at time, if I were you.

Also, should I suppose server.cfg has those couple of commands too?

but don't all those tools require Steam? don't forget I'm looking for a way that doesn't require Steam/any DRM, nor any third party programs/mods

No, they don't. And they aren't third party.

The "resources" used by standalone server + client shouldn't be ideally different from those of client+server, so in this sense as long as they are still working offline.. I guess profit.

I'm not gonna fuck around with some stupid steam tools in order to launch it if it's not even proven it would work

I want it drm free to back it up on my external hdd, not with some shitty tools along with it, which themselves require internet connection

if cs is like that, well then fuck it, I don't give a fuck
