Using direct x 8 on cracked game.
Posted 05 May 2011 - 06:55 PM
Basically what I'm asking in a nutshell is how do I do that without steam. (The game is valve like I said so it should be able to do that.) Now that i think about it is there maybe a console command in game that might help it work?

You have intrigued me with your question. Not for cracked steam games but for programs in general. The command line option for dx in steam is -dxlevel #, so -dxlevel 80 would be directx 8.
I'm guessing you add -dxlevel 80 on the end of your shortcut similar to running a game in windowed mode. Right click your shortcut, go to the end of the "target" field in the shortcut tab, add a space then add the -dxlevel 80.
No clue if it'll work and this thread will probably be closed so good luck.

Actully sometimes steam makes you go online to start it's offline mode.
I have chortles. Steam games can be played offline without downloading cracked versions.
Forgive me if I have a little nuance to my worldview, and am not a black/white ideologue who can't grasp complexity.
This is perhaps the most ironic thing I have ever seen on CAG.
