Question 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

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.

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.

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

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...

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.

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.

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.
