Can't play offline anymore


Recommended Posts

I have a really bad internet connection, thusly I usually turn off my router and play the story mode offline so I don't have to deal with update after update after update. Lately, I haven't been able to do so. I constantly get a message saying the game services were unavailable. Once, I managed to get into the game, but after the R* logos it kicked me out for some authorization thing.


I have the physical discs.


I own the game.


I would really like to, you know, play it.


I just need some way of getting it to go into offline mode(yes, -scofflinemode produces the same thing) without updating. Is there some sort of bypass thing I can use to skip the SC launcher and just play the story mode?

Tried this, got it in offline mode, it says Loading Story Mode... for a few seconds.

So, essentially, I can't play. Brilliant. :panic: These are the kinds of things that make me want to use cracks. $60 game, right down the drain.

New development, attempted to update again, gets to 76 mb, keeps going, but then fails. Click retry, it always resets at 76.00MB. Which pretty much means I can't play anymore, which is damn near maddening. Nice job, R*.
