Is there a way to play FM12 without an internet connection, I remember you could on previous editions but can't find anything on steam that allows me to install the game to my computer without having to go through Steam. I ask as I've got a 3 hour train journey this evening and have nothing to do, help!
If the game is downloaded onto your computer I think that you can play without an internet connection. However I'm basing this on the fact that my game has never crashed and my internet is unreliable, not on any facts from Steam's website.
only problem i've had so far with the offline mode is that it ignores achievements. this is not a big deal unless (like me) you're got problems with obsessive-compulsive disorder and desperately need to collect the whole set.
