Playing offline?

Yesterday the internet went out
(Overage + TOS change = Bad)

But regardless I wanted to play terraria

Tried to run it

"Updating steam" > Connection Fail > Play offline > Crash
Retry, Back to step one

Guess it could be due to the update thing...

But couldn't play the game I bought, A very big deal to me

Is there a "legal" way to play this game without steam?
Also considering I'm on a laptop, Internet is not always connected.


Edit:

And if i must be connected to play every steam game

Buying an actual "hard copy" when available i guess would be my only option
or resort to cracking game's I BUY

Hello,

In Steam, you can activate the "Offline Mode" to play certain games that do not require Internet to play. You must save your credentials into Steam and it will be able to let you play Offline.

Seeya!

Except you need to log in to actually turn on offline mode, right?

Yeah that's the problem. In order to set Steam up for offline play, you have to be online with it to set up the settings. Which basically makes you start Steam automatically in offline mode.

There was a thread and link about setting it up and what not. I'll try finding it and editing it in for you Drag00n.

Edit:
Here is a link to getting offline mode to work. It's from the support page. Still trying to find a decent thread that has someone knowledgable in getting it to work.

No problem, sorry to hear Steam was down. I'm still trying to find that thread I coulda swore I saw...A moderator in there broke down the steps to get it Offline mode in various ways but I just can't seem to find it. There are a ton of threads that give advice and info...but it's just mostly the same thing the FAQ I linked you to says.
