    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.

    What exactly did I do wrong? *sorry for bad eng. Help me pls )

    p.s.
    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.

    I did not have a window with a selection of games folder

    ^ There's only two reasons that I can think of:

    - you took away the launcher from the folder
    - or your antivirus detected the launcher files and put them into quarantine

    Hi, can anyone help me? My SSE 1.4.3 didn't work on my dota 2 v7.01. Everytime I press PLAY, it will always say "Unable to launch game. Make sure the 'Target' and 'StartIn' folder point to correct path and folder" but I think I put my Target and StartIn correctly. And yeah, in my first run, it didn't asked for the location of my dota 2. Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for the unattended post, haven't been active online in a very long while.
    To manually set the target directories for SSE, you can enable the "Show hidden files and folders" option, and also uncheck "Hide operating system files and folders" on Folder Options (Windows 7) or at the Windows Explorer GUI under the "View" tab (Windows 8/10)
    The SSE folder should then be seen, as well as its contents inside. Look for SmartSteamEmu.ini, and edit the Target and StartIn values.

    Sorry for the unattended post, haven't been active online in a very long while.

    I designed the launcher to only run the directory check once.
