Try no cd crack or patch for your games.
Ogdin: Just to be clear, DO NOT tell me "hey you know you will need steam anyway for that backup" you will be instantly blocked, don't waste my time thanks.
there is also a smart steam emulator.
I mostly use these two for my need to play dvds/steam games that I have.
CODEX or PLAZA or GOG all use script based installers. Some of them use more than 2 software.
Like GOG uses inno setup for making it's installers.
You can also use winrar or arc for archiving your games.
Cracking is a tricky thing. It might not be illegal to crack a game you own but if you give it to a friend then it's piracy.
TBH it's not worth it as it's time consuming and cpu intensive.
