FM2017 customers that do not want Steam to connect to Internet can launch the Steam client in "Offline Mode" after installation.Internet access after installation of the game will only be needed to apply game patches or Steam updates, play ‘online’ network games, use the Steam Workshop, use the Steam Store or use any of the uploading features included in FM2017.Please be aware that you will need to have an active connection and be using Steam and Planet Coaster online in order to make use of the Steam Workshop features or recieve further patch updates.Like previous versions, Football Manager 2017 can only be activated and played through the Steam platform.Once a Steam game is installed, you can go to your Steam library, right-click the game's name, choose Properties, click the Updates tab, and change the Automatic Updates dropdown to "Do not automatically update this game." It's a good idea to go into Offline mode before doing this, or launching Steam while not connected to a network so that it doesn't start downloading the update automatically.Important Note: Turning off auto-update is almost worthless on multiplayer games, as the servers tend to run the latest version.
Hey, not sure if this is the right place to post this but since the FOTS and it's patch are the cause I just chose here.
Often, when you start a game, it will need to perform a first-time setup process – this process must be performed while you’re online.
When you’re ready to go offline, click the Steam menu and select Go Offline.
There are quite a few “gotchas” with Steam’s offline mode – it won’t work if Steam knows there’s an update available but hasn’t updated yet, it won’t work for games you haven’t launched while online, it won’t work if your account credentials aren’t saved, and it may not even work unless you enable it while online. First, log into Steam and ensure the check box is unchecked.
Next, go to your Library tab and ensure that each game you want to play offline is fully downloaded.
