Ok, this has been asked before here to include me asking about it. But I have never been able to run the SDK Editor offline; nor have I read any sort of answer on how to go about doing this. If I am offline the SDK will ask if I want to run the thing offline and I click yes -- but than nothing. Says something like I can't run the SDK cause I'm not hooked to the internet. No Sh@#, really -- thanks but I know I'm not hooked to the frickin' internet :D. It don't work -- at least not for me. :confused:

Is there an idiots guide out there for how a guy might run the SDK offline :eek:? I mean why do we have to be hooked to Steam to run the darn thing anyway?

I am headed out of town to the land of no internet connections and I would really like to use some of my down time to get a bit of work done on a map I have be farting around with for sometime. Any help with the offline SDK Thing would be great.

Thanks a bunch in advance.

copy the steam.dll from the steam folder to your RO/system folder.
Start the ROEd.exe

Actually im not sure if the first step is still required.
