I have a Windows XP install that I've disabled ethernet/LAN drivers to keep it offline. I want to start moving my XP games from my Steam library over there -- what's the best way to do this? I've downloaded Tomb Raider Anniversary off my steam library as a test and tried launching without Steam which it does not.
Some of these games were updated to no longer be compatible with XP and some work fine on XP but require jumping through hoops installing old versions of Steam since those games require Steam. It's annoying to see people jump through hoops to install an old version of Steam when they could just use SSE, Steamless, etc but I suppose in a lot of those cases they never downloaded the game and kept a copy so they likely are using Steam for downloading as well.
#6 There are other options: LumaEmu (I only use this for Bioshock Infinite on Vista) SteamEmu (Was used for HL engine games but I'm slowly replacing this in my copies of HL with revemu),SteamLiteXP (I don't bother with this since I'd rather download the games on my game download VM)old versions of Steam (I don't bother with this since I'd rather download the games on my game download VM and I don't want Steam running when I play my games) 781b155fdc
