Has anyone else had problems with Offline mode lately? When my internet went down again, I tried putting Steam in offline mode, and the stupid thing said that "This operation cannot be completed in offline mode."

What, you mean turning ON offline mode? WTF?

Looking at Steam's support forum, it seems tons of people have the same issue, and of course Valve has yet to respond to a single one of the threads opened on the topic...

I'm just going to run it offline all the time, I guess. What's the point of offline mode if it doesn't fucking work when you need it??


Can't speak for anyone else, but mine still works fine. Just tested by disabling my NIC and tried several games. SP only games didn't even mention that I'd gone offline, Skyrim told me that it couldn't connect for a cloud sync and warned me that I wouldn't be able to use progress from another system, but it still ran fine when I said 'okay'. It swapped from online to offline through the manual switch fine, and halted (as expected) when trying to swap back online manually before I enabled my NIC again.

Anyways, point is, it's definitely not some sort of policy change. It has to be a bug or something interfering with it.
