Hi guys. I am new here
I just registered to Steam and downloaded the steam client especially for buying and playing Rocksmith.
Unfortunately, the Steam client alone is 600MB (wtf?) and I have no use for it except for Rocksmith.
Therefore, I want to use Rocksmith without Steam: So I extracted the Rocksmith game folder out of the Steam folder and uninstalled Steam.
However, Rocksmith is not working anymore because I am getting this error message: "Unable to Initialize Steam API".
What can I do to be able to run Rocksmith Remastered without Steam?
For those of you who think I am pirating the game, here the proof I bought it. I just want the game and don't need Steam.
