THANK YOU SO MUCH! I was a little skeptical as I know how these things go on the web that they try to sell you something or complete some "surveys" or whatever. I thought this was one of them, but no! This is amazing and truly does work, and now I can play my favourite game without updating!!! Thank you very much, this truly is a game changer

Dude what the fuck is up with that Steam Database link, the shit literally just took me to a sketchy url shortner website and then to a cam girl... the fuck. I just wanna play the For Honor campaign xD Edit: just went to the website myself but the method didn't work for me. It just came up with a steam notification that said something along the lines of something was missing so the game couldn't update, then it reset everything and began to try to download the update again or if i was offline, it came up with the same error and then another error saying I was offline so it couldn't update

Can you still update the game later? What does it effect besides being able to play with no update?

if you dont' have top updates you can't launch the game :/ Mafia III
TechTac (3 months ago)
I'm sorry about that. Unfortunately this method won't work for games that requires Steam to be online. But the weird thing the Mafia III doesn't have that requirement. 😧 Have you tried multiple times? Also make sure steam is offline before you do the trick.

Pollux Kerman (4 months ago)
This video is an absolute miracle. Thank you so much for making this guide. One question though; whenever I am finally ready to update the game(s) will it be necessary to revert the edit or will Steam do that itself when I initiate the update? I have the files backed up just in case.
TechTac (4 months ago)
Definitely keep up. I will be uploading more often once this YouTube shenanigan is resolved.
Pollux Kerman (4 months ago)
TechTac totally understandable mate. Cheers for the speedy replies; I look forward to seeing more of your uploads :)
TechTac (4 months ago)
Haha. I'm really sorry. I wish i could've just revealed my identity but with the creating of OfflineBay and all i'm trying to hide it more. So i can't even reveal where i'm from.
Pollux Kerman (4 months ago)
Awesome, cheers TechTac :D also, purely out of curiosity, where do you hail from? I know you said you have a thick accent so I was wondering what kind of accent it is :)

Rhas 'Churol (4 months ago)
Using this method to get around Fallout 4's latest update, which of course breaks Fallout 4 Script Extender, which means I can't use any mods that rely on that until F4SE updates. Sorry Steam, I'll update next week when F4SE is hopefully updated for the 80th time.

Majime (7 months ago)
that's very complicated, do you have to do this for every single game? why doesn't steam just include an option not to update, it fucks up my computer every single time it updates.
TechTac (7 months ago)
I completely agree with you *Majime* . They should've included a setting to prevent auto updates. I'm sorry but this is the simplest way possible. Leave a like if you enjoyed the video. And don't forget to subscribe 🙂

I don't have a backup.
TechTac (7 months ago)
I think it's possible that your game files are corrupted. You got a backup?
Jonsern (7 months ago)
It won't let me verify integrity of game files. Guess i'll have to find another way.
Jonsern (7 months ago)

That means a Steam update itself. Not a game update. Steam application updates are critical. You can't bypass them.

TechTac (9 months ago)
Did you do this process while it was in middle of the update?
Julian Johnson (9 months ago)
TechTac well,I did everything you did(except I did it for Warframe) and the game was then unplayable due to a missing exe file(I think that's the executable).
