Steam - "This game is not ready to be played in offline mode" Can someone help?



  • Hey all,

    I'm trying to load up my game to see if I can still play with mods in spite of the current situation....I have the game on Steam and of course it's automatically started downloading the update. It currently shows as "update paused", and I've tried putting everything into offline mode, and even installed GTAVLauncherBypass, but I'm still getting the message "Steam Error - This game is not ready to be played in offline mode"....

    I've changed the launch options to -scOfflineOnly but still no joy.

    Can anyone help me out with how to get my game started offline or give me a way to halt this update download/install before it gets any futher?

    Thanks guys.

    Before you update the game copy:

    • your GTA exe and gtalauncher exe,
    • and your update folder from your mods folder

    Paste them into a folder on your desktop​.

    Update the game, then copy and paste the old files over the newly updated game files. Go play. Your trainer will probably freeze your game every 3-10 mins but if your don't use trainer you should be able to play for a long while. I have been able to get more than an hour or stability with no freeze up.

    Thanks for the advice. Is there any way at all to avoid the update now and keep things as they are? Or am I basically screwed thanks to Steam? haha!

    Everytime there is an update you just do this and you should be able to play with a reverted game. All my mods are present and work, the trainer is just unstable.



  • Though if his Steam already updated and he didn't make backups, then he'll need someone willing to share their versions, otherwise, his won't work. On that thought, would a topic for that be allowed for someone to post (allbeit once and not dozens upon dozens to flood)

    This is correct.

    This site does not allow hosting or publishing of links to original game files.

    You all have a the forum chat function, I would recommend that users utilize it to solve such issues.

    @Anonymoused281 topics can't be made. however what users do in private chat or on sides other than ours is thier business purely. but topics won't be allowed as it's against forum rules.
