Original GFWL version available in beta branch
Hello RE fans,

As you know, the original Resident Evil 5 release on GFWL didn’t officially include local co-op, so the mode isn't supported in the recent Steam release. This is because some of the game code from the original GFWL release did have to be changed in the porting process so that both Resident Evil 5 and the new Untold Stories Bundle add-on content worked seamlessly together.

We have heard some feedback from fans who still wanted to be able to enjoy fan-made mods and Nvidia 3D Vision glasses (DX10 version only), so what we've done is made the original GFWL version available via the beta branch by following the steps below. Please note though that this won't be an officially supported version and is not compatible with the recent Steam release, so you're playing at your own discretion.

How to access the Beta branch
  1. From your Steam ‘LIBRARY’ list, right-click on Resident Evil 5 / Biohazard 5 and select 'Properties'
  2. Select the ‘BETAS’ tab.
  3. Type G4WLOriginalVersion (case-sensitive) in the 'Enter beta access code' field and then click CHECK CODE.
  4. Select "original - Original GFWL version" from the pull-down menu and click CLOSE.
  5. Wait for the Steam client to finish downloading the GFWL build.
  6. Launch Resident Evil 5 / Biohazard 5.
IMPORTANT: If you plan on switching back and forth between the GFWL version and the new Steamworks version, we highly recommend that you back up the installation files before switching over. Otherwise Steam will attempt to redownload the full build (6~8GB) each time you toggle between the two.

Nice, more interested in the save transfer tool right now though.

But great option for people who didn't buy the DLC to keep playing the less buggy (currently) version.
