How to use Goldberg Emulator

Purpose of the software

  • Software to bypass Steam protection. (If you have the original game, you should use a dlc unlocker.)
  • (Alternatively Steamtools can be used.)
Note: If some images or videos are missing in this guide, connect with VPN or SecureDNSClient

Software can not bypass games with DRM protection. Example:Cannot show image.

1)Go to GitHub site Goldberg (Fork) and click on the blue releases section on the right and download the latest one , download the version that says release appropriate for your operating system.

Cannot show image.

2)Extract the file from the RAR and delete the unnecessary ones .(Contents of emu-win-release.7z or emu-linux-release.tar.gz)
Cannot show image.

3)Find your game (original) steam_api.dll and (original) steam_api64.dll files.(Usually two of them are side by side and there may be one as in the example.)
Cannot show image.

Optional

If your game has an original steam_api(64).dll older than may 2016 (Properties > Digital Signatures > Timestamp) you might have to add a steam_interfaces.txt beside emulator library if the game isn't working.(This file contains interface versions, an example (for resident evil 5) is provided.)If you are on Windows, look in the tools folder for a program to generate the steam_interfaces.txt file. If you are on linux you can look in the linux/tools folder (or the scripts folder in the repo) for a script to generate the steam_interfaces.txt file. You can also just get a hex editor and search for them (Search for the string: SteamUser0) in the original steam_api dll (or libsteam_api,so on linux) or look in the ini of a crack that works on that game.

Create a file named steam_settings in the steam_api.dll folder .
Hold (original) steam_api.dll or (original) steam_api64.dll with mouse and drop it on generate_interfaces_file.exe.

4)Delete the (original) steam_api.dll and (original) steam_api64.dll files within your game files.
Put the steam_api.dll and steam_api64.dll files in the location of your game where the steam_api.dll and steam_api64.dll are.(Of course, since there is only one steam_api.dll in the example, the appropriate one is sufficient)
Steamclient.dll is there to bypass the SteamStub drm and there's no need to put it there, since very few games have this kind of drm.

Optional (or do step 6)

5)If you write the app ID of your game into the steam_appid.txt file, will definitely work.
Create a file named steam_settings in the steam_api.dll folder. ㅤ
(You can Easily find out the app ID of your game from the SteamDB site.)

Alternative

Run the game from steamclient_loader_64.exe or steamclient_loader_32.exe.
Extra_dlls file is there to bypass the SteamStub drm and there's no need to put it there, since very few games have this kind of drm.

Game has SteamStub drm protection , put the steamclient64.dll in the experimental file or the extra_dlls folder in the experimental_steamclient file. If neither worked, bypass the drm with the Steamless.

Set Achievements & Default Settings

6)Add the achievements this way and when you press Shift+Tab while playing the game (just like opening the Steam interface), you can view them from the achievements section at the top left (if there is a translation of the achievements in steam according to your language, you can change your language in the settings section (you need to save and close and open the game for the changes to be saved).

(You can Easily find out the app ID of your game from the SteamDB site. In step 5 or hard way (I forgot to show it. :b), it was shown where it was written.)

(If you want to use it with achievement watcher, you must earn at least one achievement and read the note)

Easy way

(You need to use your Steam username and password.)
(Values like -name -clean ... were shown on the hard way. Please check yourself to see the current codes.)

Dlc Add/Remove

In some games, dlc files do not come with the games. You need to download dlc files from Cs.rin.ru.

7)Dlc addIf you find it difficult to do step six or if you don't have a steam account, you can follow this step.

If you change unlock_all=0 from 0 to 1, it will automatically open all dlc or if there is no configs.app.ini file, it will open them all automatically. (In some games, it may be possible not to start)

8)Dlc removeYou can do by opening the configs.app.ini file in the steam_settings folder and deleting the dlc line you don't want.
