    Hey, I bought Company of Heroes + Opposing Fronts this weekend from the deal on steam. My brother and I like to play RTS games together so i was wondering if there was a way to get COH onto his computer and make it so we can play without repurchasing it. Any Ideas?

    A few I should point out:
    You can play COH offline as long as steam is running (works as the CD)
    You can play online without steam running but you must login to some stupid relic online thing (anti piracy = pain in ass for legit customer)


    Thanks,
    juggy

    Uhm, Steam lets you redownload a game onto as many computers as you want...
    it licenses games to YOU not just your computer...

    if that doesn't solve it, look up a program called "GCFscape" it decompresses the GCF's that steam uses and applys various things to it.
    I managed to make portal work with it...

    You can always crack Steam which lets you log into a blank account with Steam thinking you have all the games.

    I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post a link here.

    And by 'Steam thinking you have all the games' its like a clientside hack so you can't download any game like Grand Theft Auto.

    Still not sure if I'm allowed to post link, but yeah that's a possibility.

    EDIT:
    About what Antoligy said about GCFScape, that won't work with COH, not many games use GCF, most will use NCF. Steam will let you login with only one computer at a time though.
