Install help
Ok maybe I posted my query in the wrong sub forum to get help so i will try here quote "My brand new copy of Sin Episodes arrived yesterday now can anyone tell me how I can install it on a machine that has no internet connection I do not play multiplayer therefore the machine that is setup as my game machine is not online (I could install the pirate version wich is now uninstalled and deleted) but I love the game so I purchased a brand new sealed copy and need to know what I asked above TIA" unquote

Re: Install help
I am pretty sure an internet connection is listed under system requirements, so you don't install it without an internet connection. Good job on buying the game eventually after stealing it.

Re: Install help
Xeno is right, under the requirements it says Internet Connection Required.

If you can get a pirate copy, you can learn how to activate a real one.

You need an online to decrypt the files and activate your copy.

Re: Install help
Yeah well thanks for NOT answering my question and for all concerned I DID NOT steal the bloody game it was given to me so I could see if I liked it which I did so I went and bought an original and as I said uninstalled and deleted the other one as to system requirements saying you need an internet connection so do a lot of other games that I own(in the region of about 70 or so and all originals) and none of them say I have to connect just to install the thing if I can't install it without in internet connection it will be the second game in a month to go in the bin as junk

Re: Install help
One way is, to take your computer to a fried who has internet connection. That is what i would do, and it wouldn't take long if we are talking about a real internet connection and not about some ancient modem connection...

Re: Install help
56k connections is like what $10-$12 bucks a month just pay a for a month. Done deal xD. Even a free month trial to Aol is another way to go :P! Just think of what Macgyver would do in your situation.

Re: Install help
There was a option to actually play it off line once it was installed xD. Was a upgrade of some what several months agoif i recall.

Re: Install help
Yep, after several demands they really did that. But still you need to be connected before you can install it, for some ppl it's pretty annoying.

Re: Install help
Thats why i said to to get a Free AOL trial member ship and cancel it with in the month, I did that a couple of times when i had no internet >>...<<...

Re: Install help
Yeah as I said I hooked up to the net to install still wont play and neither will a lot of my other games eg: Bloodrayne series, Call of Duty series and Half Life series when I try to start any of these games the stupid steam window comes up and tries to connect to the net and I can't set it to play offline the button is greyed out so you can imagine how p'ed off I am

Re: Install help
Sorry it's taken awhile to answer just spent a miserable couple of weeks in hospital recovering from a heart attack but a bit better now, now to explain how I fixed my problems with SE:E & Steam I uninstalled it threw it in the bin reinstalled all my other games guess what no problems so now that makes 3 in the bin and two of them aren't even steam games just ones with as far as i'm concerned crap coding ah well live and learn and iv'e learnt not to buy anything that has anything to do with steam if I want to enjoy my gaming without putting up with garbage

Re: Install help
My internet connection was down for a week, and I was still able to play sin offline, contact steam and see if they have any suggestions. They make the software sin and other steam games run on, so they support it.
