SteamRiP is a site that provides free pre-installed steam games. Our site name does not represent the RIP released (clean files, similar to an unlocked game) games.

Yes, is 100% safe and all games files are checked before uploading. There is no risk among our files and each game is pre-installed.

3 » How to download a game?

The games are very easy to download, you just need to click on the Download button, which will take you to a dedicated download page, from where you can start your download.

4 » How to update a game?

1. Download the new/latest version from the site.
2. Rename the current (old version) game folder, so that when you extract the new one it doesn’t overwrite. Then extract new version.
3. Make sure the game works and that it picks up your saved game data automatically (as it should).
4. If it works, then you can delete the old version game folder.

5 » How do I request a game update?

Go to the Request Games page and comment with correct format to request for an update.

6 » How to change Language/Nickname?

1. Check the in-game settings and see if you can change it there. If not, continue down below. You might have to try and use Google Translate to figure out the in-game menus.

– Steam Games –
2a. Look for an .ini file in the game folder or subfolders. Could be called something like steam_emu.ini, steamconfig.ini, etc., but check all the .ini files. There should be a line for language/nickname that you can edit in notepad. If not, look for a “language” or “account_name” text file that you can edit. Save and open the game again.

– GOG Games –
2b. Same steps as Steam games except instead of .ini files, look for .info files

If these steps don’t work, then the files for the language you are looking for might not be included. We only check for English here.

7 » My Anti-virus picked up the game as a trojan?

Many anti-virus programs detect game files as a “virus” because the game files contained cracked files which make the game run. A lot of these anti-virus companies get paid to do this, that way you buy the game instead. To prevent this, disable your anti virus, then re-extract the .zip file and the game will run. Every game on this site was tested on our own computers, so you can be insured that it’s not a real virus. Anything your A.V may tell you, is a false positive.

8 » Where is my SAVE file located?

We have no control over this so don’t ask us. It’s different for every game, although it’s usually in either ‘Documents’ or ‘AppData’. Try searching on google “GAMENAME save file location” and you can usually figure it out from there.

9 » I am getting 404 Error while trying to download?

Sometimes your IP might get blacklisted by the Server. So use VPN to start downloading and once it is started, then you may turn OFF VPN.


We are not a mods site, and therefore do not provide support for mods. The same goes for cheats and trainers. Yes, mods should still work on the games even though they are cracked. But you will have to google where to download them and how to install them yourself.

11 » Do these Cracked Games have Multiplayer?

Yes, some of the games have multiplayer, but that does not mean you can connect to your friends on Steam, you and your friend need to have the same version of the crack to play. You can find what games have multiplayer on our Discord community.

12 » How to add Multiplayer Online-Fix to Games?

There will be an extra button for ‘Online-Fix’ files on the game page. Download these files and copy/paste (overwrite) them to your game base folder.
You can also check the video tutorial on YouTube.

13 » How to follow steps for Games? Antivirus + Exclusion

You can follow the steps for running a game (including exclusion for folder) by going to “Steps for Games” page.
You can also check the video tutorial on YouTube.

14 » What is Torrent and how to download game using Torrent?

On some of our large games we have Implemented an alternative download for Torrent. It gives you the speed you want and it is also another safe way to download games apart from direct download which we offer.
A torrent normally comes with the extension .torrent but it does not contain the actual game. You need to download the .torrent file to PC, then you just have to open that file with client (µTorrent/BitTorrent/qBittorrent) to start the download.

15 »How to increase the Download Speed?

You can increase your download speed by using the Internet Download Manager (IDM). You can download the cracked version of Internet Download Manager from our site.
After installing the IDM, you will need to install the browser extension ‘IDM Integration Module’ for it to automatically capture downloads with a single click. If not, you will have to manually copy the download link from the Download tab and paste into the IDM (Add URL option).

16 » Do we crack games?/How we get all these games?

Our games are mostly taken from CS.RIN Forum or sometimes from Repack Sites, such as FitGirl, Masquerade, and Xatab etc. Their games are mostly setups, so we install, check, configure, and make them ready to play. All credits are given to them accordingly.
