This is driving me nuts...
« on: August 6, 2011, 12:12:21 AM »
Where the fuck do you create an offline account for games for windows live? I downloaded the application for it, but it does nothing but throw me into the Xbox Live marketplace with no option to create an offline profile there at all. It's driving me mental because I can't fucking save anything.

Get a PS3. They specialise in keeping users offline.

OK, I've spent the last half hour doing my head in looking for a solution to this with little to no help. I'm making a cup of tea before I blow a gasket. One of you fuckers better give me a straight answer by the time I get back.

Very confrontational aren't you?
I don't see how it being more unusual equals it being worse. Shitting on a fellas chest while he's sleeping is probably more uncommon than murdering or crippling someone. It doesn't mean it's worse though.

Yes, on a PC.

Some games require you to have an offline profile to save. I keep reading about how you create one, but my GFWL seems to be different to what I see. Mine is like a black MSN where you just sign into the Xbox Live marketplace for some reason. There is no option to create a local account.

Ah, solved it at last. I was missing a certain dll. file on my PC to get the thing running.

Open your game and when they bother you with a prompt scroll around. There should be a "Create an Offline Profile" hyperlink somewhere in there.

Yeah, I seen that when the menu dropped down. The program wasn't working for me when the game started up, so I'd no clue where to look or what I had to do. Seriously frustrating. I found some help by complete accident on Google about how the xlive.dll can sometimes go missing or become corrupt. It was due to this that it wasn't working for me.
