Company of Heroes and Offline Mode

Some users have been experiencing difficulty getting Offline Mode in Steam and Company of Heroes to play nice together.

Company of Heroes uses an internal CD Key check that, while able to work with Offline mode, sometimes requires a few extra steps to make work.


Here's what you do:
  1. First start Steam regularly in Online mode with your computer hooked up to the internet.
  2. Run Company of Heroes and let it get to the main menu screen. Then exit Company of Heroes.
  3. With your computer still online, set Steam to Offline Mode (File -> Go Offline). Let Steam restart. You are now in Steam Offline Mode.
  4. Now with Steam in Offline Mode and your computer still internet-enabled, start Company of Heroes once more, letting it get to the main menu. Again, exit Company of Heroes.
  5. Exit Steam.
  6. Unplug your network from your computer.
  7. Start Steam once more.
The game should now run properly, however as with most 3rd party titles we cannot guarantee compatibility with offline mode.
