Is there anyway at all besides off-line mode to install and play HL or HL2 without Steam?
Which is illegal, and we don't do illegal things here.
My god how is it illegal when i freaken PURCHASED the game with MY OWN MONEY. im usin dail up and im freaken dyin here tryin to install it.
You did mentioned "without" Steam. Steam is required, which also said on the package when you bought the game in a shop..
Internet Required (Hence Steam to play through it, including offline mode)
Steam / Valve made it hard to play without steam. So I'm afraid you have no choice.
Yeah, too bad dude, can't play HL2 without steam
HL on the other hand, if you just purchased it in the store, I guess you should be able just to install it and play it offline... without steam That's at least what I did when I bought it (Don't konw if you've got another version or something that needs steam? I bought it a LONG time ago :p so maybe the new ones need steam..)
He can also bought the game online. Which is not really smart with a 56k connection.
yeah the new HL1 has to have steam. well thanks for taking away any hope I had looking for a way to play without havin to use steam lol. thanks for the replys
lol so far i only have 3 options, wait forever and a day for all the crap to update, get a faster internet, or wait for this petition thing to get passed thats askin the Valve peeps to stop makin people use steam
