You do NOT need to be connected to the net to play. Just connected when you register or need updates.

To play offline, disconnect your modem. launch HL2. When it says could not connect, select the OFFLINE mode and it should launch. Once you are connected to offline mode, you should see that little steam icon on bottom of screen to the right, and it will be red. attachment.php?attachmentid=20630 Theres that pic again :)

I don't think he intends to come back here, since he asked to be contacted by email.

But does anyone know if there's a way to tweak the connection timeout for steam so that when I'm offline it notices straightaway?

I ask this because when I'm offline it takes about 5 minutes before the box appears for offline mode.
