i believe you must be online. the software makes sure you have payed for your copy by logging in. your sprite i believe is also tied to your user name and password. the offline switch is just to say that you don't want your server in the list of servers to join.

You can play offline (currently I'm on a naval ship in the pacific with no internet access for our personal computers), so it's great that we have bought the game online while we were in port and can now play it at sea.

So, playing offline, you have to set the server properties file (as toonamo said) to offline mode.  Once you do that, get the IP from the server's computer (ipconfig in DOS), then just type that in (or the computer name).

Thank you very much !! That's ok for me, i changed "online" true to false and I logged with the ip : 127.0.0.1 (others don't work !!!).
But when my friend want to connect on my server, he type my computer's ip (198.168.....), and he can't connect ! ("connection refused: connect")

Someone have an idea please ?

Sorry, I up my topic...

We succed to connect offline : the ip we entered wasn't  just. The command "ipconfig" doesn't work, and give a "false" ip... (I don't know why, but never mind).

But we have a last problem : as we connect both in offline mode, our name ingame are "player". So when i play, if an other person join the server, i'm ejected with a message like "you have logged in from another location".
Consequently, we can't play on the same world.... because we are both called "player".

How I can do for have another name ? Even if i use my account, i'm "player" !
