Can GM8 games be played without DirectPlay?

I've recently tested a GM8 game on Windows 10, and Windows asked me to install DirectPlay. I installed it, and the game worked fine, but since DirectPlay's main purpose is to provide network functionality and the game is 100% offline, I'm wondering if the game can run without DirectPlay installed

Apparently yes. It shows a warning on each run,

but if you click "Skip", the game runs as normal
