    Play all Steam games without Steam!

    INSTALL wrote:
    • Extract the contents of this package to where your game is installed.
    • You can launch revLoader in two ways:
      • 1) Create a shortcut to revLoader and apply the following command line options:
        • -appid <APPID> where <APPID> is the application in question.
          • If supplied revLoader will create a steam_appid.txt file with the value specified.
          -launch <PROCNAME> where <PROCNAME> is the executable to launch
          • All other command line options are passed through to the launched executable, so:

            revLoader.exe -appid 12345 -launch MyApp.exe -silent /help

            This will create a steam_appid.txt file with the value 12345 Before launching MyApp.exe with the arguments -silent /help
        2) Specify the name of the application to load in the ProcName setting in the rev.ini file.
        • You can also specify the command line if required.

          e.g ProcName=MyApp.exe -silent /help
      • Set the "SteamClientDll" value to the path to your Steam client's original steamclient.dll (optional)

    • If your game doesn't use steamclient.dll, you might consider commenting the option "SteamClientDll".
    • If you specify SteamClientDll value, we recommend you create a file called "steam_appid.txt" and write your game's valid AppID in it, or start revLoader with the -appid option and revLoader will create the steam_appid.txt file for you.
    • Always use the latest steamclient.dll from the revEmu package!
    A lot of thanks go out to Steaming_Noob and Diviton!

    So to use this i can either: (correct me if i'm wrong)
    1. make a shortcut ........ i understand this one
    2. go into the rev.ini file and set ProcName= to the name of the game (ex. hl2.exe) AND set the SteamClientDll= to the location of my dll and then launch revLoader.exe?
    what does the steamclient.dll part do? do i have to do this?

    one more thing: what does the -silent /help do?

    You cannot launch any Valve game using this, it only works for 3rd party games.
    And yes, you need to point SteamClientDll to the DLl.

    That -silent/help thing was just an example how you could pass static parameters to the game.

    Any game should work with revemu, this is just a leightweight alternative for 3rd party games.

    Trying to run Modern Warfare 2 right, and i tired so many times to get this working to play single player

    This i put this code in a shortcut
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Downloads\Compressed\revLoader.exe" -appid 7940 -launch iw4sp.exe -silent /help

    and i changed the directory for the steam steamclient.dll

    Nothing at all, i always get this mesage "unable to execute command iw4sp.exe -silent /help"

    Is there certain types of games this will only work on?

    how would i go about making it run a mod i made? the mod is running as appid 420, which is Ep2... would i need to just copy over the hl2.exe from the hl2 folder?

    This loader worked brilliantly for audiosurf, but it can't run Civ4 Beyond the Sword. I put the files into "common\sid meier's civilization iv beyond the sword\Beyond the Sword", along with original steam.dll, steamclient.dll, tier0_s.dll and vstdlib_s.dll. I created a steam_appid.txt containing "8800" (correct appid), and set ProcName=Civ4BeyondSword.exe, SteamClientDll=steamclient.dll.

    However, when I run revLoader.exe, I get an error box titled "Steam Error", that just says "Application load error P:0000065434".

    EDIT: Scratch that, audiosurf doesn't really work, it just waits until you try and start a new game to complain.

    I read and read the directions but I'm still having a hard time getting this to work. The game icon appears and then nothing happens the game doesn't start. If I understand the directions then all I have to do is specify the file path in the rev.ini and the modified steamclient.dll path and then that's it. I'm trying to get brink to work by the way.

    After setting up revolution loader and starting the revloader file nothing happens. There's no error message or anything. It's like it was never activated. Any help or tips on why it is doing this?

    The steamclientdll is just optional
    So, if you want to do it
