Hi Kazp123,

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble using the Pi Store offline. We'll look into it. :)

Thanks very much for your patience,

Yes I don't have the full list of files Iridium Rising I know is multi player this one I don't think off hand will work but all the rest should be stand alone programs

I also could not play my games if i don't have internet, the tab of the already downloaded games is empty.

In the initialization, It run an update, and everything broke, no app, no store, no games.

Reinstalling everything from scratch now ... :(

If I understand correctly, there's no need to reinstall. Your tabs won't be empty if you restart Pi Store when you have regained an internet connection.

One way to access your apps and games whilst offline is to navigate to their location in the filesystem: /usr/local/bin/indiecity/InstalledApps and launch them individually from there. I'm aware that's just a temporary workaround rather than a solution, but due to the holiday season, I'm afraid it's impossible to deploy a fix before the early part of the new year.

Hi. Thanks very much for the Pi Store.
Could you please make or produce a app so that me and other Raspberry Pi owners can access and download the games, apps and software without the Pi being connected to the internet. I don't have internet access at home. I only I can access the internet is I go to the library or a internet cafe. I don't know if I can use my Pi with a mobile internet dongle (package). I belive many other Pi owners don't have internet access at home and I can not have a phone line added or connected to my home and I can not afford a home internet package.

Not sure how you can download apps without internet but if you download them you can

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local/bin/indiecity/InstalledApps
ls 
Then cd into the individual directories to run the games.
