Playing Rocksmith without Steam

Question

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.

Answer: you need steam

 

600MB is practically nothing, it doesn't use much cpu,

You can close right after you stop playing RS,

Just a pro tip, don't tick the setting 'start up Steam at PC start'
