As well all know, FM can now only be played through Steam and by default, an internet connection is required to play it. Here is a short tutorial to set the Football Manager 2013 offline mode and play the game without an internet connection.
Please note that an internet connection will be required to install the game, to update the game with the latest patches and to play network games. You can just switch back to online mode for this stuff though.
1. Launch Steam whilst you are connected to the internet
2. Click the ‘Steam’ menu and select ‘Go Offline’
3. Select ‘Restart in Offline Mode’ . The next time Steam launches it will not be connected to the internet.
4. Fire up Football Manager 2013 and enjoy your new offline mode.
