Well I tried this 'Steam' thing and decided to register ina advance. It gets installed beautifully, but when I start it, a little green window saying 'Initializing' comes up with a progress bar having no progress for 'Quite Some Time'.

So moi quits it through Ctrl+Alt+Del, curses and swears at it, kicks my table and jumps without a reason.


I had the same question, BTW.

To play offline, I *believe* you need to have your password saved, and offline mode switched on in Both Half-Life 2 and Steam.

I can't even reinstall my game because the ****ing steam servers are "too busy at the moment"

That is why I havn't got half-life 2 yet (apart from the fact I need a new computer) I don't like steam, It may be combating pirates but it gives ligitimate customers a big problem aswell.

Steam Sucks:mad:

I don't see why everyone hates steam so much. I've had no problems with it so far and its always fast. But I guess its different for different people.
