Steam questions...

Postby MeanderingBeing on 11 Jul 2009 12:48

Now I just now thought of this...
Will I be able to play my steam games like
Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines,
and
Dawn of War II
Without having to connect to steam or the internet? The games are installed on my hardrive afterall...?
Please tell me I am not screwed, because I have to temporarilly deactivate my internet as of monday...

They should still work. I was playing HL2 that way. I think they have a time limit tho. After about 6 months or so, I had to update steam for them to work.

From what I remenber steam has a offline mode which asks if you want to go into after failing to connect to your account but still has access to your games. So that should work.

Ok I just tried it and got it working.

First go on steam as usual. After a while or quickly it will come up saying you cant get on it or something. It will ask if you want to retry or go on offline mode. Click offline mode and then look at your game list. All the games you want to play should be on there.

Hope this helps.
