Counter-Strike: Source Update

Steam News (thanks Frans) has word on the couple of minor changes to Counter-Strike: Source offered in the new Steam update.

And please don't complain that...

"what if I am on a desert island with my computer so there is no internet but I want to play HL2 on a LAN with the other person who shipwrecked with me who also has a computer with him but I can't authenticate without steam servers omg wtf"

don't get me started on that bullshit, yes I know the offline mode, but have you read the instructions on how to activate it?*&p_li=

The first step here is to perform the latest update and capture it. This is very important to make sure you get the latest content and bug fixes. Everyone that will be participating at the LAN event must have the latest update!

Easiest way
Bring the computer that will be playing offline to an available internet connection at a friend's house, school or perhaps business. Log into the account and do all the updates, make sure it all works.

RIDICULOUS! The convoluted nature of these steps inspires NO confidence in me that they want you to go offline, ever. I also find it amusing to note that the instructions require you to be at the latest patch level before you go offline


The instructions also explicitly encourage you to connect to business and/or school networks in order to update.....places that IN ALL LIKELYHOOD have policies against using their network for entertainment uses.
