If Steam’s offline mode isn’t working at all, you may still be in luck – some Steam games don’t use Steam’s DRM at all and can be launched manually.
If you know you’re going to need offline mode – say you’re preparing for a long plane ride or you’re moving to a new place where you won’t have an Internet connection for a while – you should walk through several steps to ensure Steam is properly prepared to run offline first.
and guess what am unable to play the **ing game without updating it or offline! and guess what am unable to play the **ing game without updating it or offline! My SC now wants every start to connect to servers..yesterday SC was working offline for about 3 days, but it just happened today after SC update, we have NO LONGER offline mode, what the heck they doing? i just Brought a original copy and installed it on my system. Plus i have tried all possible methods trying to play offline but nothing seemed to work!
If I already have the full game, why does it then need to connect to steam?
Is there any way for me to just run the game files without Steam?
Click the Restart in Offline Mode button and Steam will restart in offline mode – features like Steam’s server browser, friends, and achievements aren’t available offline.
Steam will launch in offline mode each time you use it until you manually re-enable online mode.
If you’re performed these steps, Steam’s offline mode should now work without any problems until the next time you tell Steam to go online.
