Shogun 2: Total War Discussion
Since the patches have come out, I can't play more than 10 minutes without some game-breaking bug popping up and ruining the game experience.
go to steam right click on the game go to properties and updates and turn it off . its a nightmare i hate it good thing is if you turn the updates to you do not download automatically then your achievments still run for a month after the patch is released wich is plenty of time. steam have stated in the past that the idea is to make it so the gamers can jump straight into a game without having to download patches from websites and they have no intention to change this turning updates off is the only way to do this . and tbh i dont agree with steam about gamers being able to jump in i kow loads of peeps that do not leave steam on permanantly as it drains bandwith . guess we should all email steam with this new idea ?
@jmolle: turning off auto-update doesn't work, games just update themselves without permission; and about the "gamers can jump straight into a game without having to download patches from website", well it's not true when you have to wait 10-15-20 or even 30 minutes to play a game because it has to patch: i mean, if I want to play it right now, and maybe update it tomorrow, I should be able to do it! So yes, maybe we should ask Valve to implement something...
Basically, Steam isn't going to change its policy because the people they rely on for profit, game companies, love the idea too much. You can complain all you want but I'm pretty sure at this point Steam doesn't believe people will stop using their service, rightfully so in my opinion.
