    Long time ago you had to be online to set the offline mode, but that has not been the case maybe since 2013, all you need is to had been online once after installing steam. If a game don't start in offline mode is because it has another DRM on top or the devs made it need online connection every time you start the game, nothing to do with steam. Also offline mode had some sort of time out where you had to go online once a month, but in last couple of years I had never seen it myself so I would presume it's gone now.

    It's one of those things people would rather complain about for years instead of actually looking for a solution.

    Maybe it was something like that, i had no troubles launching offline mode today, or maybe i had brain fart yesterday :P

    I'm actually really pleased with Steam tbh, it was first time for me to have any plroblems in few years.

    I was in permanent offline mode for 6 months or so in 2012 when I volunteered overseas. People acted like I was lying but I wasn't, it worked fine for that long.

    Sorry, it's not. My guess (as I'm not working for Kitfox who are publishing) would be a temporary date filled in just because you had to put something in the release date field.

    Why the fuck have AMD GPU's become so unpopular in the last 5 years?

    Looks like Steam nuked all my personal Categories overnight. Now all my games are listed under "GAMES" and "VR". It's the same on both my computers.

    WTF Gabe, this is triggering my autisms something fierce.

    Hopefully it's only a temporary issue.
    :despair:

    edit: It's still fucked up:

    I remember when I bought my GPU some 3 years ago that the RX480 was very close to the GTX1060 performance wise and costed around 100 euros less.

    nVidia have better drivers and enhancements for older games, in my experience, which is the main reason I use them. Seems like every other game I read about has some issue with AMD.

    Crypto mining happened. Miners are buying AMD GPU's like cakes because they have better price to performance ratio.
