Steam already patching GWFL out

Steam already patching GWFL out

Postby acaraba2 » Thu Oct 17, 2013 6:58 pm

Just a heads up turn off auto updates for the following games as GWFL has already been patch out.

Batman Arkham Asylum
Batman Arkham City

If you want to play them without updating you must start them while you are offline on steam or it keeps asking you to update.

It happen with Arkham City for me today, but I can still play Asylum since I was stupid enough to hit yes when it asked to update.

sorry for the second post thought this area would be more appropriate.

Bioshock 2 was patched out recently as well. It would have been nice if they gave an option similar to Toy Soldiers where you could launch the game in either Steam mode or GFWL mode instead of just removing GFWL completely.

That sucks AC, and thanks for the warning, I did manage to turn off updates after i installed all my games and I am now moving on to the Batman games before I get completely shut out of GFWL after I finish FUEL which should only be a few more hours left. Good Luck to anyone else affected

there are a list of games that will be patch , so be careful when updating. the DRM should work till the servers closed on july 1.

Here are the forward thinkers:
◾Bioshock 2
◾Batman: Arkham Asylum Game of the Year Edition
◾F1 2010
◾F1 2011
◾Fallout 3
◾Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
◾Lost Planet: Extreme Condition Colonies Edition
◾Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition
◾Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II

the good thing is I didn't have an achievement unlock in arkham city, so I guess I wont be playing twice now for sure.

Thanks for the info.

What is actually quite annoying is not being given the option here. They are removing a function of the game (Xbox achievements), and if I want to retain them, I need to basically break Steam.

Actually I believe Arkham City can be started outside of Steam, so that's another workaround. Still annoying.

acaraba2, if I you want I can make the pre-patch game files available to you for Arkham City.

luckily, I notice I hadn't started arkham city so I am not to upset about that one, and I caught my self before I did the update for Arkham asylum so I can play that one by going offline on steam, so not all that upset but I just wanted to post so others don't do the same and then have to look for a disc copy.

I warned you about this a long time ago. I told everyone to turn off updates in their GFWL games through Steam. Sorry to hear you didn't pay attention. :|

I had updates turn off but couldn't figure out how to play it and accidently hit yes. I know the update patch out GFWL but once I hit yes it was to late. it wouldn't let me play it even though it only partially download it. I basically forgot you had to go offline to play it.

Some clarifications:

1) Disabling the updates on Steam will not help. Steam still checks if an update is available, and won't let you launch the Batman games if there's an update pending. As soon as Steam knows about the update, you're effectively screwed. The only way to avoid this is to run Steam in offline mode all the time, and never let it connect to fetch it's updates. I'm fortunate that I was warned about this before my copy was updated from under me; several of my friends were not so lucky.

2) Arkham City can't be launched outside of Steam. Even if you start the game exe manually it still has Steam hooks.

I have been able to avoid this by launching all my games in Steam offline mode. I just need to install a few more games that I have left and play them. I have already given up any hope at completing all or even most of the achievements in most of the PC games that I own.

I went permanently offline a bit ago but I still received the client update that patched it out. Arkham City has not been affected but my copy Arkham Asylum will not boot up without a CD Key which has been stripped from the client. Looks like I am at a loss for that one, although I have contacted Steam Support about optaining an unlock code or a CD Key to be able to launch it offline. I am still waiting for a response after 3 days. I guess we will see what happens then.

I have managed to restore GFWL support to a friend's copy of Arkham City after it got patched. Well, technically I replaced his entire installed copy with my unpatched copy - but hey, he can launch it with Steam offline and is able to unlock achievements again, so he's happy. In a week or two I hope to build a patch file that will allow anyone to revert their copy.
