Automatic Steam update notice, "ok" for the 100:th time

Post by provet »

I'm playing on a dedicated server which uses 0.16.19 the host of the server ain't available to update each time a new update comes out.
How many times do I have to press "ok" on this message before it understands that I do know I'm not updating automatically?

I don't think it would be a good idea.

1) People would forget that they're playing outdated version.
2) Outdated versions are removed sometimes. And then steam force-reverts to the stable.

P.S. At least it doesn't reboot every 2 hours to remind you that this version is outdated.

By updating the game.
Or by using the .zip version. (You probably want to disable the option to check for updates at startup). I expect the .exe installer would also work (but probably better to use the .zip version because it won't overwrite your steam versions blueprint etc).
