Civilization 5 is the an initial (and only) PC video game I bought that immediately made me install and also register heavy steam and makes me connect to vapor in order to play it so this thread can be a tiny mis-informed. Anyways, I"m having actually trouble connecting to vapor at the minute so i figured i would just play Civ 5 without logging in however I don"t recognize how. Is it impossible to pat Civ 5 without being connected to steam or the internet? If the is possible then just how do I carry out it?

I think girlfriend just have to put vapor in offline mode. Not sure where the option for the is though. Never done the myself.

"You have to be connected to vapor when you put under preferences that from now on you desire offline mode. (its in reality under the steam tab in the top left), Then vapor would restart under offline mode and also from climate on girlfriend don"t need to be connected online to play any vapor game.

If friend buy the from a digital distribution service other 보다 steam, you can probably run it without steam, however otherwise you"ve gained to usage steam. You have to be maybe to accessibility it offline though. After it has failed to log in you in there have to be an choice to start steam in offline mode.


SuperBuster: Not entirely sure, I simply tested it the end by closing steam, unplugging mine net and also opening heavy steam again. When vapor couldn"t log on, it prompted an choice to use offline setting right there (and the worked). But of course, i had permitted offline mode prior to so take the to mean everything you what it come mean.

"No, Civ V doesn"t work without Steam. Also if you bought the retail disc, it wants you to hook it up to Steam. However you"re right that after failing to connect it should just run in offline mode.
RVonE: So also if girlfriend buy the from GamersGate or Direct2Drive you"ve acquired to usage Steam? That"s pretty weird. I"m surprised those services would market the video game if you have to install a competing product to run it. I knew the sleeve disk mounted to steam, but it"s really weird other competing digital distribution services doing it too.

RVonE: So even if girlfriend buy it from GamersGate or Direct2Drive you"ve gained to usage Steam? That"s nice weird. I"m surprised those services would sell the video game if you need to install a contending product to run it. I knew the retail disk set up to steam, but competing it"s really weird other digital circulation services doing it too. "Well, that"s what I"ve heard anyway. On the Direct2Drive site it says: "Other Requirements: initial installation needs one-time Internet connection for vapor authentication; software application installations required (included v the game) include steam Client, Microsoft visual C++2008 Runtime Libraries and Microsoft DirectX". And also on Gamersgate that says: "Note: This product calls for a 3rd party download and account". Maybe someone else have the right to confirm? It"s entirely weird if it certainly works this way.
