Half-Life 2 - "Out of Steam"

1086 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Player-X
Well I got Half-Life 2 for my birthday and up until a few days ago it was working fine. But then I got this weird steam error and was informed on the official steam forums that the server was messed up and reinstalling should fix the problem. So I reinstalled steam and when I went to update it I once again got the error saying steam was offline. Since I've got an un-updated steam it means I can't even run it to set steam in offline mode... is there a way to fix this?

I gather circumventing steam is illegal, but really this is preventing me from playing it.

Steams always do weird stuff when it's supposed to update or DL games, just reinstall it
once again (delete clientregistry.blob first), and retry. You may have to relaunch steam several times to fonish installing it, mostly due to their servers being slow as hell :p
