Offline mode

Does the app have an offline mode, or is that in the works? I fired it up while Not On The Information Superhighway and got some error on the login screen... though I didn't screencap it, I'm afraid... :(

Certainly I can just run my games from the installation folders, but these days it's nice to have a lovely platform from which to do it, on- or offline.

With 17.6.6 (current stable) I'm able to launch the app, pick a remembered profile and launch a game — which version are you currently running?

Hmm... I thought it was as up-to-date as possible, but I'll double-check when I get home (what's the quickest way to determine that?)

And if it happens again I'll screencap the error.

Right now, press 'Alt', it'll make the menu appear, version number is under 'Help'.

I'm definitely using 17.6.6, and if for instance I put my laptop in airplane mode and start up the app, I still get the error.

I can't see much of it, since there's only around three lines of text in the window and it does seem to go on for a bit, but the first lines are:

Error: getaddrinfo ENOENT itch.io:433 at Object.exports._errnoException (util.js:949:11) at errnoException (dns.js:33:15)

I can try to copy-paste the rest of this, three lines at a time, though if there's a full log output somewhere on disk that might be easiest.

If it helps: I'm moving tomorrow and so my apartment's wifi has been cut off... I'm using my neighbour's network, but it's much, much slower and drops out every now and again.

We get it too, actually. Whenever one of us closes the app and then opens it later, it gives an error for us too, even though we all downloaded Itch only a week after Itch Week ended. The app doesn't seem to have an offline mode yet.

Just to follow up, as per your tweet, I tried v18 and still got the "Error: getaddrinfo ENOENT" error appearing.
