Issues fixed

Install without internet access

Game installation requires internet access even for games sold as DRM-free.[3]
Bypass setup removal[3]
  1. Run the downloader and download the game normally. A GamersGate temporary files folder will be made in the same folder as the downloader.
  2. Wait for the installer to start.
  3. With the installer open, make a copy of GamersGate temporary files.
  4. Close the installer and the downloader (choose to delete the downloaded files).
  5. The copied installation folder contains setup.exe or install.exe (or similar) which will run without internet access.


This installer will work offline for games sold as DRM-free; games sold with DRM may still require online activation.

    d. What options is there concerning DRM?
    You have 3 options:
    1. Sell the game DRM Free
    2. GamersGate can add DRM, if so Sony SecuROM will be the provider.
    3. If the game is already wraped with DRM then GamersGate can sell that version.
