Yeah, it's not a game mod, but mah post countzzz _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ NOTES: - all credits go to syahmixp for this tool - SSE files have been hidden to "protect" the .ini and .dlls (since we are using the loader for Dota 2 only). But you can use SSE for other games as well. - SSE DOWNLOAD LINK _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ What is Smart Steam Emu? - Smart Steam Emu is a Steam emulator, which emulates Steam ticketing procedures when connecting/GC protocols when creating games (duh) - it's one of the best (if not the best) Steam emulators around; has support for friend chat, game overlays, almost everything you use when playing on Steam. Features: - Run Steam games without steam - Enables online play or on LAN without internet connection - Emulates lobby, server browser - Stats, Achievements and Save games - Configurable DLC subscription - Avatar support - Plugins support - Overlay support (DX9/11) - Steam Workshop partial support _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Requirements: - Microsoft(R) Visual C++ 2010 Runtime (x86) _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ How to use: REMINDER: If you dont trust me (or this tool), make a back-up of your Dota 2 folder and try to experiment. 1. Download the pack, extract anywhere. 2. Run "SSE Simple Launcher". On first run, it will ask for the location of your Dota 2 executable (32-bit). Give the correct folder. 3. Use "SSE Simple Launcher" to set your name and avatar (only .png files please), and press PLAY 4. ??? 5. Profit! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ FAQ: 1. It shows "Steam validation rejected" when I start bot games/join games - Close Dota 2, turn off UAC, and run again. 2. Will this be usable forever? - Depends on change in Steam ticketing procedures. syahmixp has dedicated his efforts on making sure that all games are supported 3. Are there custom items? - No. And not yet.
