    • Offline PS4 Remote Play
      (Current Version of the Remote Play : 2.0.0.2211)

      Before we get started, a little message for Sony

      Hello Sony,

      If you ever happen to read this, don't you think it would be nice to have this feature built-in ?
      Think about it like this for a second : you are going on holiday with your PS4 and your laptop because you have no other display available for it. Most laptops aren't shipped with an HDMI input port so you can't directly connect your PS4 to your laptop's screen. However, what you can do is connect your laptop and your PS4 with an ethernet cable and use RemotePlay... until you realize that you need an Internet connection to start the software.

      Looking for updates is nice, but is there really a point in preventing players from using their console because they don't have an Internet connection available all the time ?
      Incidentally, if you have any problem with me posting this, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    • Getting started
      For various reasons, I can't give you the patched executable. However, I can still tell you how to patch it yourself. You will need to download xdelta as well as the RemotePlay.patch and put them next to your RemotePlay.exe.
      Execute the following command :

      Then you have to start RemotePlay-Patched.exe to enjoy your PS4 Remote Play offline experience. I'll describe below another method to do the same thing without having to change RemotePlay.exe itself.

    • Will RemotePlay work as usual ?

      Yes, every aspect of the original RemotePlay have been kept, except the error messages. Be aware that if you have an Internet connection and an update is required, this patch will NOT prevent it (updates are here for a reason...) !
      I may (or may not) totally prevent those updates, but currently I don't know if compatibility problem may arise between the PS4 and the Remote Play if both aren't up-to-date.

    • I don't trust those patches thrown at me like this...

      ... and that's perfectly fine.
      Here are the steps so that you can reproduce the patch (the first version) by yourself :
      • Throw your RemotePlay.exe at de4dot to remove the obfuscation.
      • Open your brand new RemotePlay-cleaned.exe using your favorite decompiler (ILSpy, .NET Reflector, etc...). In my case, I am using dnSpy. Navigate to the class RemoteplayUI.CheckUpdate and look for the method taking an object and an EventArgs as arguments. Here's the original obfuscated but commented method :
      • There's a second edit to do. Look this time for the method taking an object and an AsyncCompletedEventArgs as arguments. Here's the original (shortened a bit) obfuscated but commented method :
      • And that's it, you can now export your brand new RemotePlay executable (using the Save Module... function on dnSpy) and enjoy playing on your PS4 anywhere.
      Alternative method, almost 0 programming skill required.

      1. Download and install Fiddler.
      2. Enable HTTPS decryption in Fiddler.
      3. With Fiddler running, start RemotePlay and wait for the request to https://remoteplay.dl.playstation.net/remoteplay/module/win/rp-version-win.json.
      4. Select the AutoResponder tab, enable the rules, enable unmatched requests passthrough.
      5. Drag & Drop the request made to remoteplay.dl.playstation.net into the rules list.
      6. Select the FiddlerScript tab and look for this line :
      1. Click on Save Script.
      2. That's it for Fiddler. You have nothing to save by yourself. The only thing that matters now is that Fiddler must be up and running when you want to play without Internet.
      3. There's still something to do. Currently, if you open RemotePlay, it'll tell you that (if you are truly disconnected) there is not network connection available. To fix this, create an access point on your phone and connect to it (there's no need to have an Internet connection available on your phone, otherwise it would defeat the point of having done everything mentionned above). Note that you can also use any free hotspot you may have around you.
      4. It's already done ! When you'll start RemotePlay, it'll think that an Internet connection is available (when it's merely connected to a hotspot WITHOUT Internet) and when it'll try to look for updates Fiddler will take care of it.
      5. Enjoy the offline PS4 Remote Play.
