Space Invaders Extreme – How to Play Offline

For some strange reason, this mostly offline game needs an always online connection, so let’s fix that.

Be warned, you cannot earn any achievements when playing offline, so my recommendation, unlock them all if this is your cup of tea and then do the procedure (mind you, it’s not a permanent procedure).

Guide to Play Space Invaders Extreme Offline

Step by Step

  1. Download this zip file.

Please note that I did not create those files, I found them on the Internet.

  1. Unzip the content and copy content in you Steam’s common folder (the default folder is: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common, if your games are on another drive than the C:\ drive, then you’ll need to find it yourself).
  2. Now go into the Space Invaders Extreme folder inside your Steam’s common folder.
  3. You’ll now see an Online and Offline folder, move the cri_ware_unity.dll and steam_api64.dll files into the Online folder.
  4. Now copy the steam_settings folder as well as the cri_ware_unity.dll, steam_api64.dll, steam_api64.dll.bak and steam_api64[.]org files from the Offline into the Space Invaders Extreme folder.
  5. Launch the game as usual and enjoy it offline!
