Mafia II Steam offline mode question

Hello,

Why i can't start Mafia II in offline mode?
When I press 'start in offline mode' which then gives an error message that there is something with my internet. But once I was able to start steam in offline mode without problems .
How can I make sure that i can start Steam in offline mode?

Ps.: my English is not verry good. I hope that you understand what y say.

I think thats no problem with Mafia 2, thats how the offline mode works. You have to be online to switch the Steam client to offline mode. After that you can use it and start games being offline.

Thats the point so many users complain about, because they can't play when the Steam servers are offline...because the client needs to be online for switching^^

Unplug your network cable.
Start steam, selecting offline mode.
Plug in the network cable once steam has started in offline mode.

Or just start Steam, when you get the message "Logging In" click Cancel. You'll be returned to the login screen where you can select "Offline Mode", very simple.

Just know that for a game like Mafia2, playing in offline mode, or playing online with Steam Community Overlay disabled, Steam can't track your game achievements. Thus u don't get any credit for them either.
