How do you play this game without STEAM!!!!??

#1QUIKPosted 8/5/2012 3:23:37 PM
I really am sick of Steam, mainly because I have a horrible internet connection(time warner cable) so I cant access my games because It just keeps trying to connect to steam.. Their is nowhere in the start menu or any other menu that I can see that will allow me to connect to steam offline or play Skyrim or any of my other games without logging into steam...I miss the days when I didnt have to connect to the internet to play a game I purchased.

Open Steam, click the Steam drop down menu on the top left, click go offline.

Like the other person said Steam has an offline mode. I used it for about 4 months when I was stationed in Cali with no reliable internet connection.

Make sure to save your credentials by going to Steam>settings and then unchecking "Don't save account credentials on this computer"

steam checks for credentials, if you have your credentials saved on the computer, steam can reliably use those credentials to access your games without internet, i won't repeat the steps since someone above me did.

Just be like Bork from The Guild. Put your pc in your van and steal McDonald's Wi-Fi long enough to get your Steam set up.

Offline mode is unreliable. I couldn't even play Half-Life 2 or The Binding of Isaac on it.

Hell, even if I click 'Start in Offline Mode', there's a good chance it says 'Cannot connect to Steam'.

If I had to summarize Dawnguard in two words, it would be this: more Skyrim.
