    Can I play Civ 5 without having Steam installed?

    Ok, so let me start of by saying I am deployed. I was pretty excited when I found out that there's civ 5 for PC, and I ordered one. I waited for the game for over 3 weeks (mail takes that long to get here), and for past week I was running to post office everyday to see if it came in early. Today it did (great, I have a day off tomorrow), but I have been trying to install it for past 6 hours!!!! all because of that stupid Steam!!! It keeps giving me errors, first it wouldn't start updating, i searched all over to find solutions... as soon as I fixed one thing, another thing came up, when I fixed that, another came up... deleted blob, installed separate steam.exe to replace the other one, renamed to -clearbeta, ran the safe mode, firewall/antivirus off, etc etc... it keeps telling me to either connect to internet, or the system being temporarily unavailable, etc... I am tired! I finally have a day off, and I spent $50 on this game, for me to get another one is 3 weeks! I couldn't care less for online gaming (plus we are not allowed to do that). I wrote an email to steam, nothing from them. Please help! p.s. i read something about working with router settings, but no can do. We get free wifi here, and are not allowed to touch it.

Plus, I was thinking, when I revert from VIP to freemium, would I lose my GR AT's and costume pieces, aura's etc.?

  • me to my question. I have only ever made it to 5 items 'piling up'. I had already owned all of them so I had left them there. But after 5 days new items stopped arriving. I don't remember... differently. Now the past few days I have a single item in the shop that I am not interested in and 2 days one more item showed up (that I bought leaving only the 1) but the past 2 days no new items have arrived again. I would say it is just random but it was extremely consistent the first few weeks and even when it piled up to 5 they were 1 per day until they stopped. After they started up again

  • Possible Duplicate: Can we play Portal 2 co-op on one iMac? According to this article and this steam forum thread, it's possible to set up a split-screen co-op in Portal 2 on the PC. To clarify: This is having 2 people on one PC with the same steam instance of Portal 2 both controlling their own character in the co-op campaign mode of the game. It's not supported out of the box by the menu interface. However, many have apparently gotten this to work by having either an XBox 360 PC USB controller or a gamepad controller that is configured to emulate one. The original forum post
