cracked servers advice?

um basically i want to play on cracked servers with my friends that dont own a lick of anything on steam.

we would like to play gmod 10, what client/patch/release would be easiest to do this?

alternitivly im thinking, they'd have to have the gcfs that gmod needs, and something like steam buster rev. ( it opens from gcfs) and hamachi, and we can play on lan, right? is there anything i should know when setting this up? i just like create mulitplay and tick lan, and sv_lan 0/heartbeat. right?

anywho cracked servers or hamichi lan whatever you think easiest. (in fact both would be fine.) lol ty in advance
i would probably go for hamachi just cause you can turn it on and off when you want. To play you pretty much need the gcf's for the same and a steam emulator to launch them.
