    Normally this isn't an issue, however I have hit a snag. I bought Fallout 3 GotY and NV Ultimate (I like my DLCs) when they came out but never bothered with opening the packs since I just pirate them anyway. This worked fine and I enjoyed a nocd/nosteam experience until about two weeks ago.

    Then I decided to play them again since Fallout 4 is coming and I wanted to walk through the whole series. I got 1 and 2 on GOG before they lost the rights, so that was simple enough. Then I decided to put 3 and NV together for a richer experience, using tale of two wastelands. Unfortunately, the mod authors are AP freaks so I finally had to break the seal on both my 3 and NV copies. 3 because I didn't have an original exe and NV because again, I didn't have an original exe.

    So I've been playing for the last two weeks just fine, however Windows 10 comes out in a few days and I HATE STEAM. So, does any one know about how to go about cracking NVSE to work with the Fallout: New Vegas - Ultimate Edition crack on game copy world?

    It's the only thing standing between me and No steam bliss.

    Side Note: I give ttw a 7/10. While it is fun, some of the mobs are packing heat that is way above their pay grade. Some super mutants have flame lobbers and it's making some areas that were easy in 3, downright scary in NV. Also the prices are all over the place, with stimpacks costing 100 caps each where as they where 10 in 3. Then there is the armor system. I stood point blank range and unload three clips of 5.56 AP ammo into a super mutant overseer's head with a luck of 10 and barely scratched him. Otherwise, it fun and with a level cap remover + multirank perk pack and wasteland mastery, it's down right fun when I don't hit a beef gate. I think my first deathclaw is gonna make me poop my pants at this rate.

    Edit: There is a PC section. I didn't see it the first time. Can a mod move this post to the right section?

    To ask a mod to move a post just report it and say move to whatever section it needs to be in

    So I'm on windows 10 and steam free. Which means I can't play TTW unless I install steam or crack nvse.

    Looking through the scr, I see a function call identifyEXE, under loader_common in identifiyEXY.cpp. I'm not sure how to go about editing it to make it work with the hacked version since it interacts with steam libraries. Kind of annoying really.

    I've been thinking about just going with separate games instead. I like reloading my ammo and the updated engine, but it's bulky and time consuming. So I'm on the fence on whether to continue to re-engineering the NVSE, just install steam for the remainder of my play-though, or give up and just go with two games instead of just one massive game.

    Maybe someday deep in the future, Bethesda will put the two games together and drop them on GOG. It's like .0001% chance, but would make them immortal.

    I have pirated copies of both games and legit and I can run the pirated ones with TTW mod without steam and no problems.

    How did you get around needing the NVSE?

    I just installed the necessary files into the folder where the exe is located I even used other mods with it, never had a problem except for the 4gb patch (mainly because I don't have a whole 4gb of ram usable) I had to get the injected installer for that.
