I see this is pretty much an abandoned forum but what the hey...
I am quite a fan of Skyrim, I have had the game for years and it is about the only game that I play. I really haven't gotten all that far through the game, I might spend 2 or 3 hours a week playing.
I had to reinstall windows on my computer and for some reason now I find myself unable to install Skyrim from the disc now. Before I could simply attach to Steam and then disconnect my internet once it started installing and it would revert to installing from my cd. I could install via cd in about 1 hr whereas the Steam kittens was like a 5 to 6 hour download.
I now 5g internet so speed is not such an issue so I went ahead and allowed the full Skyrim download from Steam, but I could not get it to run past the initial intro screen. I have spent two days and 20 hours trying to reisntall Skyrim now to no avail. Do I simply need to find a new game to enjoy or there some way to still get Skyrim installed and play it? I have tried every crack pot hair brained method of trying to get Skyrim installed that I could find on the internet, but nothing seems to be working.
I am having the same issue now with my Oblivion as well after downloading the full Steam version of it. I can still play MOrrowind, it looks like I may be back to playing that for the next few years, disappointing but better than nothing.
I now know to avoid the Elder scrolls products in the future, my six kids and my wife and I have really enjoyed the Elder Scrolls games, but with this Steam it is just about impossible to install them or to get to run anymore.
Does anyone know of other Elder scrolls like games out there that do not associate with Steam?
