    How can i play online?

    Post by pokle312 on Mon Sep 30, 2013 9:32 am

    When i start up the game it says:

    You cannot use online play because you are not connected to games for windows LIVE

    I installed games for windows marketplace and running it while running the game still wont work.

    Press Home once you start up the game to bring up the Games for Windows Live window. Sign in with your account ifyou have one.

    Have you got an xbox controller? He means press home on that.

    GFWL should pop up when you start the game.

    Get a controller/adapter that works. the keyboard and mouse controls suck pinapples for donkey rags.

    See this thread for more info: http://soulswiki.forumsrpg.com/t24534-no-gfwl-overlay

    I'm not really sure about a fix, though.

    The controller Iisn't needed to open GFWL. I use my keyboard to open it by pressing the home button since my controller adapter isn't in yet. Also, check Newegg if you wanna save a few bucks once you've saved enough money.

    The only thing I'd recommend the controller for is PvP.

    Sorry for the thread taking a turn.  Do you have the Steam version or the standalone version?

    Don't take offense to this but your mate might've installed a crack to bypass the gfwl or having the CD in. Check it out with him.

    It's also possible he already used the product key if the game is originally his.
