Games for Windows Live

Recommended Posts

Hey guys sorry for making a new thread. I have got GTA IV working and when I tried to sign in the games for windows live in the game in order to use my gamer tag and saving the game. After I signed in in the game it says invalid key? It's the correct key I use from the back of the book. I went to Xbox.com and redeem the key and it was successful but when I try to play GTA IV and sign into games for windows live it says invalid key.

the key on the back of the book is for the game. you need a xbox live card.

Ohh. I would need Xbox live then? Well heck. Time to get live.

So I still need live in order to save missions I've done?

I just bought live online, hopefully it will let me sign in on games for windows live and start saving missions(after I get off work). I'm tired of not saving the first mission and have to do them over again.

if you already bought live then i don't understand why it not letting you sign in with your existing XBL account.  did you add anything else to you main gta folder ?   As for saving your files there two way one is live and the other is installing Xlive file.

Well I just bought live like 10mins ago haven't tried to sign in yet since I'm at work till 9:00pm central time.

Haven't added anything to main GTA file.

I guess I don't have the xlive file, when I tried to save the "cousin Bellic" mission it prompted me to sign into games for windows live but said invalid key.

You don't need to buy xbox live to play PC games that have GFWL installed.

 

All you need is;

  • A legal copy of GTA IV Updated to the latest 1.0.7.0 patch
  • Games for Windows Live
  • A free account (be it a new one or an old Xbox 360 Gamertag)

no  that not the issue  GWL is a whole another issue with invalid keys problems. people have done everything right and they get it. some say it depends on the country while some say it other issues that you have to do. i'm trying to see if anybody else have this problem.

Ahh ok. I am going to call games for windows support after work and see what they say.

EDIT: btw is there anything I can do to save the first mission without signing into games for windows live that way I don't have to redo the mission??

Would I put the xlive files in the GTA IV directory?

Would it also work if I create an offline profile to save the game mission?
