Select "Do Not Update Automatically" Come on people at least learn the features that Steam has. I am doing exactly what you describe, but the next time I load steam, it has reset itself to auto update in spite of me setting it to not do so. Steam will not download any game or update , for some reason however it will download the workshop files and updates The downloads will be in que and steam will attempt to download them, but it won't do anything, it'll stay like this for a short amount of time (longest one was about a minute shortest was half a second) before giving up and moving onto the next one. Things I've tried include: Granting and denying access through firewall Turning firewall off and on Reseting files (steam://flushconfig) renaming Client to Client Regestry I do not want to remove steam and reinstall it.
After trying to load them up the window doesnt respond upon launch.
I have a 16GB internet cap, so you see the problem.
and other games like gary's mod add lots of new content with it and if you do this to a multiplayer it might not work correctly online or not even connect but as you said you are using it for single so shouldn't be a prob i used this solution for counter strike source, half life 2 and medieval total war 2 and works fine in single player.
