The biggest issue with Steam's offline mode is that you have to be online in order to switch to it.

Yes you do, and it stops working if you don't check in every x days.  I've looked.  Yawn

Think of it as Always-On: Lite, but I was pointing out that it exists and not whether it's a problem or not.


That's also wonderful that Steam-locking your game isn't mandatory just because it's on Steam.  Grin

then why have i been doing it for years

im sorry but the faq is bullshit. when im not connected to the internet (which is often because laptop), i can start up steam and it'll show me a message saying "steam could not connect to the server blah blah blah". then there's 2 buttons: "retry" and "start in offline mode." clicking "start in offline mode" (SPOILER WARNING!!!) starts steam in offline mode and i can play all my gams. has worked every single time for me so far.

yeah cas it's not like someone else could have issues with it when you don't

literally every time I've been without net I haven't been able to start steam in offline mode, sometimes even when I started it in offline mode before I left an area with net

but still, most indie games don't even require steam at all. you can literally copy them out of the steam directory.

for me, it's been that way for some time. click the GO OFFLINE button and it throws a fit and fails to do it.

well I've never had it work otherwise, I've ended up stuck with it refusing to go into offline mode for a week+ away from net about three different times.

I followed the directions on how to set up Steam Offline Mode to the letter and it still keeps trying to connect to the internet when I click the button that says play offline. So, yeah...
