How am i suppose to use it? I am planning to buy the game. So want to know how to use it and whether its helpful. Plss help guys
Just set it to sleep when you close the lid. Set steam to offline mode then close the lid. Will be fine to play again as soon as you open the lid.I've switched my lappy off so many times and not put steam in offline mode, got on the train for a 3 hour journey and not been able to play it!
Thats the thing I hate most about steam!!
What exactly do you mean by that Jake?Steam is similar to origin yes.
Once steam is in offline mode, you do not need the internet again as long as you:
Don't restart steam
Don't restart your computer
Sleeping your computer is fine, not sure about hibernate.
I've always been under the assumption that as soon as you restart steam or you computer, it is no longer in offline mode...What exactly do you mean by that Jake?
Once you set Steam to offline, you can do whatever the **** you like with your computer and can play FM absolutely fine.
Or did I misunderstand your post?
