[GTAIV|GFWL|REL] XLive Protect Disabler

Recommended Posts

Alexander Blade

 

-= GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE PROTECTION DISABLER =-

 

Description:

Many coders which had worked with xlive-using games know that xlive.dll provides memory and code protections , so there are no ways to change main executable code. This asi plugin disables live code protections , so u can feel free with changing code of xlive games (ofcourse including GTA IV).

ASI Loader also can work with all dsound using games and applications.

Tested only with xlive.dll v2.0.0687.0

So now we can write hard-code plugins not only for Xliveless tounge.gif

 

Installing:

ASI Loader must be installed (dsound.dll). Copy *.asi file into the main game folder.

 

Download:

You could probably write directly to memory with this.

 

Normally xlive.dll would protect this.

for example any code patching , removing/modifying/adding/hooking code/static memory with original live

So I could use this with FUEL for example?

 

I will try it and see what happens.

 

What I would like is a generic xLive disabler. I would like to completely disable xLive in FUEL for example.

 

Is it even possible to create a generic xLive disabler?

 

Or do most xLive-games expect xLive to return game specific bits of data, so that a generic dummy xLive wouldn't work?

 

I'm asking whether a particular game would have to be itself patched in addition to having a dummy xLive.

 

I do have the SDK for the xLiveless for GTA4. My next experiment would be to strip out the GTA4 specific parts and leave just the dummy xLive stuff. What odds would you like to give that it doesn't work that simply?

it works with fuel ofcourse ,

i thought about "overall" xliveless for all live-games but i didn't see good games (excluding GTA4) with live , maybe just Fallout3 and DOW2 (F3 already have something like xlivless by F3 modders) , all other games it's just a wasting ur time

Hey Alex, with this asi I can use any savegame ? Because from what I understand this removes all the protected code from Xlive, so I could use any savegame because the protection is gone. I tryed that Xlive Wrapper, but didn't worked for me.

Hi Alex. I have a problem, its about load savegames..

 

its several things in this,

 

1: first i tried to add xlive.dll,dsound.dll, to the Gta IV mainfolder, and savegames to the savegame folder. first times it says it could not load the xlive file, and than after adding your protection, it will not load anything. the game does not start

 

 

2: i have tried other patces to, and trust me.. it has been alot of installs of gtaiv game for testing for it to work.

 

i have got it to work before with the 1.3 patch, and than just saved it to another file so i had it also when i had the onlineaccount on. But it came after i had a cleaning of my pc.

 

Do you know how i can make it work agen ?

please do send me a message! cryani.gif

Your anti-virus developer released a crappy update. You'll need to contact them to get it fixed or get a better anti-virus.

Doesn't work on Win7 64 with Xlive 3.5.92.0. The loader says that it was unable to load disabler.

 

Worked on XP SP3 though.

GFWL Protect Disabler is bothering me because xlive is not in the folder. Im loading it with ASI Loader (DSound), using modded GTA IV. Its the xlive.dll needed?

 

Also, if i have xlive.dll with dsound.dll in the folder, it won't read it anyways! And if I use xlive.dll without dsound it will crash, but I think that is related to modded launcher.

 

 

I have this folder because I play IV:SA. and i want it multiplayer.

if you have xlive.dll in your folder it means that it uses xliveless and as the result you don't need protect disabler asi plugin

im not using xlive.dll. when i try to use it normally with dsound (no xliveless or xlive.dll) it throws me an error about not existing:

The reason is that GFWL got updated and something is changed in the code , so protect disabler doesn't find byte sequence to patch , means no way to fix . I won't do any updates to this plugin as well .

Any way to downgrade GWFL? Old xlive.dll maybe?

 

Also, where is that xlive.dll? in gwfl install or what? uninstalling gta 4 and gwfl and installing gta 4's old GFWL might work?

 

I will try this last one

 

Edit: Uninstalled GTA IV:SA (Mod), GTA IV, GFWL Marketplace and GFWL Redistribuable, and erased every xlive.dll in the computer. Installing GTA IV. Now lets see what happens...

I Identified the problem. So this is the problem:

 

Like 2 months before I re-installed GTA IV. So I installed all the components. I activated and launched GTA IV. GFWL offered me a update but I skipped it (because I tought it was a xlive.dll update). Then I made a title update manually. But after making that title update manually (With titleupdate.exe) the game stopped launching (Launcher worked, but no GTAIV.exe running.) Then I found this solution of installing GFWL Market place.

 

THAT was the Problem. Marketplace comed with some modifyed xlive.dll that your asi didn't recognized. Then I found out also that the update prompted by GFWL in GTA IV was only a proper title update plus a little xlive.dll (compatible with your script). Now its working properly your script.

Sorry for the bump, but will this EVER be updated? A lot of mods break because of the GFWL protections, and most of the PC MP community is suffering from blackscreen freezes and freeze cars, which could be easily protected against with .exe mods, and the author of this is still on GTAForums, so he could easily update it to support the newest xlive.dll.
