Anyone else have trouble playing off line mode? I am taking my computer to a friends house and he doesnt have the net, i have updated everything and can play fine in online mode, it even lets me play half life 1 in offline mode but it tells me there was an error connecting for half life 2, i have a legal version i just wanna play it. im sure this is the wrong place, but i am going tommorow and would appreciate any help.
Well thats what you get when you buy software from an extremely paranoid software company. Gabe/Valve does not want the game to be played on a machine without internet connection and made many public warnings of that. This does suck for those trying to play the game on a notebook and on the road. Of course any hacks to prevent that checksum could create the chance of your steam account termed.
Does Steam have some offline setting? Never checked.
