hello everyone, just as with halo 2 I found it extremely difficult to connect .I the physical version of the game I need to know if you experts know a way to connect at least once. The game forces me to play offline and when I click on "live" nothing happens

facepalm
Halo tmcc 100% :)

You have to play this game offline. To sync your achievements you'll need to load up another gfwl game online.

You do indeed have to play offline. The last patch the game received (before the online service migrated to Steamworks) somehow broke the GFWL connection. Since you can't play online without accepting the latest patch and you can't play online with the patch... well, offline is sadly the online way to do it. Like Jam said, you then have to boot up a different GFWL game and connect to the service to sync your offline achievements.

Yes, that's all as it should be. You can not play Dark Souls GFWL online at this point, you can only play it offline. The achievements you earn will still count, but they will only be synced to your profile once you boot up a different GFWL game, so that the GFWL service "sees" your offline Dark Souls achievements. That's what Halo 2 is for in your case.

correction.. you can NOT Play Physical Copies Online anymore ... i'm still able to play my Steam copy while connected to GFWL.. of course in order to be able to play the Game online you must have had the Game installed before the Steamworks Update ... but IT is still possible to play Online and earn Achievements ONLINE in Dark Souls (PC) it's just very rare to find somebody to play with laugh

I'm also running Windows 10 (64 bit) on a good rig. I've got comcast internet and they're fast. I just can't get past this date check.

For getting past most of the Release Date Checks it works if you set that Date of your Computer back a Day after the Game came out so for Dark Souls that's 25 August 2012.

Works for this and any other GFWL title doing this

It will unlock again if you revisit the Asylum later and then use the crow to return again. That seems to make it stick for most people, including me.
