Hi all,

I am wondering,

If I am playing a game off steam, and during gameplay, I lose my internet connection, does the game quit working?

Thanks

I have actually never had that issue. Though I believe it should continue to play.

That of course is for Single Player games only. And for certain games like some Ubisoft games where they need a constant connection to validate your keys, that might have an issue.

If internet for the game then obviously you can not play without the internet connection.

Sorry, I should re-word this question:

I play only single player games, no online stuff at all.

Sorry about that.

And then my answer is still good lol

Some Single Player games need a constant connection for authentication, I believe only some Ubisoft games, those will probably have an issue in Offline mode with Steam. Then again I don't have any experience with that.

All other Single Player games (and I mean anything with a SP mode, even if it has MP) should work. All you need to do though, is unplug and find out.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
