Hello, please tell me how you can run the game without having access to the Internet? I can play mostly when I'm offline, but without the internet the game doesn't start, it looks like a mockery :/

Isn't the problem just Steam? I have the itch.io version and I think it works fine

Why didn't the developers just add the "skip update" option to the game? That would have solved the problem. Why block the game in this case?

This way doesn't work, the game is crumbling.

Are there any other ways to play without a network connection?

an alternative option I found was to copy the engine into the zk folder. this has the benefit that both zk and the engine accesses the same data, but has the downside that you need to add in the base folder when trying to play offline and needing to remove the base folder when playing online.

NOTE: THIS WORKED FOR ME DOES NOT MEAN IT WILL WORK FOR YOU!

Steps:
1. go to \Documents\My Games\Zero-K\engine\win64\
(I would assume that win64 would be replaced with the name of your operating system)

2. open the folder with the highest number (currently 104.0.1-1544-ge1f249f , so you should end up in [i]\Documents\My Games\Zero-K\engine\win64\104.0.1-1544-ge1f249f[i] )

3. Copy everything in there

4. Go back to \Documents\My Games\Zero-K\ , and paste everything in. Don't override anything

When you need to play online, delete the base folder in \Documents\My Games\Zero-K\.
When you need to play offline, copy the base folder from [i]\Documents\My Games\Zero-K\engine\win64\104.0.1-1544-ge1f249f[i] back into \Documents\My Games\Zero-K\.
