Not that long ago, Anonymous fulfilled his childhood dream and cracked the RevEmu emulator, which provides Counter-Strike: Source and Global Offensive work without the Steam client. Send our congratulations to him. However, this considerably added huge inconvenience to administration of most servers.
About SteamID Spoofer
In the beginning of the 2019, a SteamID Spoofer for CS: Source appeared on the network and posted on GitHub with open source. The program allowed players to change their unique identifier, thereby bypassing the bans and hacking the admin panel. Later, Steam ID Changer released, which could do the same things, but with CS: GO.
Using the program is simple: type in the console command for automatic or manual change of Steam_ID and connect to the server. Thereby you can simply change “SteamID” and avoid of the ban, which you’ve got on server for example.
Server owners should:
1) Update the emulator on your server by replacing the steamclient.dll file or steanclient.so in the bin folder. If the server is on a Linux platform, then upgrade it. To do this, go to the bin folder and rename the original steanclient.so file to steanclient_valve.so, then add the emulator steanclient.so file.
2) Add in [GameServer] section of rev.ini config:
Check_Ticket = True Allow_Fail_Check = False Check_Ticket_Async = True
Players can simply start 7Launcher and press the button «Check Update» to be able to play on servers with new emulator. In our clients of CS:S and CS:GO there is the last update already, which prevents the vulnerability used before to spoof SteamID.
