So I got skyrim, I'm trying to install it but I have to go through steam, my problem is after I created my account, and downloaded the steam program, it says I'm not connected to the internet so steam won't update. I'm probably never going to use steam again, as i didn't have to for any other TES game, but I don't know how to get it to install Skyrim. It is trying to update (Steam not Skyrim) and the Fatal Error occurs. Any help?
I disabled my firewall and Norton says steam isn't blocked. I also tried the whole delete all files except blah blah... And the update got halfway through then the same error popped up. (That was frustrating as my internet is slow and that took almost 45 minuets)
That sucks... ANything i can do? Like a manual Skyrim Install?
Just about the only thing I could suggest would be to find a friend who has the game and copy his game files into your steamapps/common folder (where your skyrim folder should be). Then steam would have to verify the cache to make sure that all the game files are there and when that happens it should be installed... it still requires the internet for that though.
