Is it possible to play GTA IV without R*s newest Steam Launcher

Question

gta111

I just tried launching IV on steam after it forced me to update, and the launcher crashed due to my computer being messed up. Is there anyway to get around that and play offline because it seems the new launcher from rockstar makes Xliveless useless. Thanks in advance.

There is no way to downgrade right now. You should have backed up your old copy before updating.

You are full of sh*t, Steam removed the option to prevent games from auto-updating YEARS ago. Backing up the old copy would not help in the slightest when there is literally no way to prevent Steam from updating the title before it is launched.

Mate if you just copy the game and don't call it "Grand Theft Auto IV" but "Grand Theft Auto IV Copy" it won't be updated. But you'll have to launch the game through the .exe and not through Steam.

You can try downloading old version and replacing the current version with it, then manually launch with "LaunchGTAIV.exe" file because Steam no longer launch the game with this file anymore.
