Is it possible to play Skyrim without steam?
Posted 02 April 2012 - 03:00 PM
There are often times that I literally just do not have internet access, which unfortunately is a necessity to play games through steam. Yes it does have what they claim to be an "offline mode", but this still requires you to first log into steam with an internet connection first. So as annoying as it is, I currently have to have internet access to play a game that shouldn't even require the internet in the first place.
So are there any ways I can bypass steam and play skyrim without it? And if there is a way to do that with the creation kit too, I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me.

I'm not sure if this would work, but you could try.
When you go into offline mode, and stay in that untill you log off again it should ask you what you want.
Either online mode or offline mode, maybe it will work then.

You can access offlinemode any time - you just need to go into it once with a connection at any point prior going into offline mode directly so that Steam "saves" the data of your account and knows that you got those games.

If you haven't told steam to run in offline mode, and try to access a game it tell you to enable offline mode.
This is the only other way I know of. Even if you try to launch the game with the .exe from the steam folder, it still launches steam.

BootStrapperInhibitAll=enable ForceOfflineMode=enablesave as "steam.cfg" in your steam folder, it forces offline mode.
Not sure if legit, I haven't needed it yet, found it on reddit.
