    can i run black ops without steam

      reason I am asking is because I am not able either off the game dvd or directly off steams website install steam. Each time it errors out and says , could not connect to steam network. this could be due to your network connection or steam network. so visit steampowered.com

      posted there no answers. Really sucks sitting with a brand new game and am not even able to install. Can this be played without steam ? If so how ?

      fustrated.

      thanks

              Can you play any other Steam games?  There are some free games out there (I have Alien Swarm and Booster Trooper).  That will show if it really is Steam or something else.

              Are you using a desktop or a laptop?  Can you take it somewhere else to use the internet?

                You can always try to delete your reg.blob file ... and let steam redownload its updates...

                - Or you can check all of your settings on steam..

                  I have a desktop system quad processor, 8GB RAM, ATI 4600 series with 1GB, Win 7 and FIOS connection. This is a first time steam install after  recently cleaning my system and doing a complete windows reinstallation, which I do once a year. Been reinstalling software one at a time. If I were playing any other steam games I still would need to install steam so this problem would still be there. Will see it I have any other steam games left since I gave way most of my older games to my son.

                  just really strange issue here.

                  ps non steam games like MOH play with no porblem

                      go to https://support.steampowered.com/

                      Do a search for the error message you are getting.  it's a common issue with steam, and the support page will have a lot of suggestions for you.

                        for those who experience pc freezing during mp games, it seems that they ported this game to pc not good, so to solve freezing in mp games type in ingame-console: /demo_enabled 0 - it will turn off replay recording.
                        By default, in configs multicore support is turned off, turn it on
                        find in file config_mp.cfg "seta r_multithreaded_device" set it to 1, it should enable multicore support (if you have more than single core CPU)

                        also try giving a higher priority to BlackOpsMP.exe and running game with steam being in offline mode.
