Hi, I was looking for some support on overcoming my problems with launching my games when offline. I frequently spend alot of time travelling without wifi access and like to play games in my downtime. When I try to launch offline I get the attached errors, 1) gives me the option of "Start in Offline Mode". Error 2 then says "could not connect to the Steam Network" and says it could be a problem with my internet connection (no - I'm trying to play offline) and to visit the website for details (is this a joke? I'm trying to play offline) I have spent nearly 2 months grappling with the lame technical support at Steam. I can confirm that: - I have tried using Steam's offline mode (it took me over a week to get this top tip from Steam, AFTER I'd told them offline mode doesn't work...!!!) - I have started the game at least once in online mode. In fact, I usually start the game online, with my wifi in the background at home. - All updates are downloaded - My games work fine with an internet connection live. - My games work if I boot with a connection, but switch to offline mode. My problem comes when I have no connection present to start with in the session. Put simply, "offline mode" doesn't work and just tells me I have no internet. Any help greatly appreciated. If I have to go through Steam's lame support one more time I think I'm going to redefine corporate manslaughter.
