Attention: All these cracks work on cracked servers only! VAC 2 is NOT cracked so far!


Overview of Cracked Steam Clients and Non-Steam Solutions
--------------------------------------------------------------------



Important - please read first

This post is meant to give an overview of the most important releases here at the RIN.ru Main Forum.

:!: This is the fastest way to get Steam cracks and Valve's games for free!

By reading this, you don't have to search or make a new thread about what you need!


Problems with updating or downloading GCF files? More information below, first section!

Need help with one of the listed releases? Ask in the official thread of the release!

Need cracked servers? You can find many in the Cracked Servers List Thread, or check the second post of this thread, section 1 'Cracked Server Utilities'!

:idea: Getting Errors with some tools and apps from here? Install the Visual Basic Files Pack or the C++ Runtime Files Pack! Also check if the application you get errors from needs .NET Framework 3.0!

:!: Want to host a cracked dedicated server? Check out PROViSiONs and REVOLUTIONs forums. Also check the stickied thread(s) here for that and the Tutorial section - and use the search feature.

Content

1. Common contributions
This section lists common downloads and helpful threads you may need to get your Steam cracks working.

2. Steam Client Cracks
These are various cracked Steam clients. Steam is Valve's content delivery platform, as they call it. It's used to update and play games that are released over it. With these cracked clients you can play and update the games with only a blank account (not all games!).

3. Launchers
Launchers are little apps which can be used to start Steam games. Most of them use emus for that, for more information about Steam emulators, scroll down to the 'Cracks and Emulators'-section. There are launchers for GCF files and for extracted games and most of them have additional features aswell. Not to forget you don't need an account for any of these tools.

4. Cracks and Emulators
Here you can find miscellaneous cracks and ways to get the games to run, like Steam emulators which make the game executables think they are started through Steam.

5. Extracted Standalone Games
These are the games, without Steam and extracted from the GCF files. Several groups and forum members release the games as Standalone. When the games are updated via Steam, they offer patches to update their extracted versions. Dedicated servers are also cracked by these groups.

2. Steam Client Cracks
    What to do:

    Step 1: Download and install Steam, start it, let it update and create a new account; close Steam.

    Step 2: Download or request Mini-GCFs at the GCF threads (check 1.1 above!) and extract them into the SteamApps folder inside the Steam folder. Note that you may need newer Mini-GCFs after an update to make the games download!

    Step 3: Get one of the following cracks and replace the original files with the cracked ones or, if it is a patcher tool, use it to patch your original files (first crack listed is recommended):
    Step 4: If you experience problems on downloading games, get the GCFs from the GCF threads (check 1.1 above again!)

    Step 5: After you updated/downloaded your games to 100%, you can get cracked servers from The stickied Cracked Servers List Thread and from section 1 of the second post on this thread, "Overview of Useful Tools for Steam and its Games", "Cracked Server Utilities"!

    Step 6: Launch the games through the cracked Steam or through a launcher (section 3 beneath).
