GFWL Account issues.

Can anyone help me regarding being able to access my old account?, all the emails I've tested aren't associated with any of my accounts bar 1, I know the gamertag for this piece of shit they called software and before you ask why I'm using it, Dead Rising 2 is using the bloody thing and I can't get around it, for love no money I cannot think of any of my emails that are associated with the gamertag I need, that gamertag also has a few of my games on it and after the reinstall of windows, I lost my email quickfills on the client. Any ideas?

Without the actual e-mail of the account of the gamertag is registered too, you might struggle. Especially if you've forgot the password or even the security question answer etc; hate to be the bearer of bad news though. Have you tried contacting Microsoft directly?

 

I thought they did away with Games for Windows Live though?

Apologies if I have read this wrong. However, Torrenting games is why some games don't make it to the PC, and the fact it is illegal. For example, GTA V. They know that certain people in the PC gaming community will just torrent it, leaving the company with no money and games not hitting the PC market. Not saying GTA V isn't coming to PC as we don't know, but this is probably one reason why it hasn't as of yet.

They have had it with GFWL and it's not available per say, I'm trying to contact them directly, I know of all the passwords I've used but I moved over to Gmail and had to use an MS account for GFWL, I'm in the process of trying to contact them, maybe ask them to tell me the first 2 letters that would probably be all I'd need to figure out which account I used. ( I own maybe 5-8 emails in the past ), I want to pair all my games between my 2 steam accounts that use this shit.. Ughh.

I understand. I think the only option at the moment is to contact them, as you said even if they do tell you certain letters of it. Especially if you can't remember it. I've been in the same boat before and it stinks. Learnt my lesson from it. Good luck to you though. Hope you get it back!

Thanks mate, as I've said, even if it's just a few letters of the email, on the spot I will remember it. But anyway, thanks for the help.

It was a while now since I had issues with GFWL, but I am pretty sure I have had them all at some point. The service sucks. Luckily it will be removed next year, and Capcom has said that they will likely port their games away from GFWL. I am sorry, I can't help you with your issue, maybe you can wait until next year before GFWL is gone completely.

You're having issues with GfWL? That's new. /endofsarcasm

 

Anyway, I would advise you to just pirate it. You already own the game, so why let this abomination prevent you from playing.  ;)

 

I have copies of Dead Rising 2, DiRT 3 and GTA 4 on my GfWL account which I am completely unable to use because of this nonsense. Contacted their support three times, sent an email to the "tech" team they referred me to twice, no answer as of yet. That was several months ago.

 

DISCLAIMER: I do not in any way encourage piracy. Buy your shit.

If you're on about this, then I'm not the OP. But still pirating them; is still pirating. This is why developers don't want to release games on the PC, because someone will pirate them.

So he should pay twice for the same game? Pirating is not one of the main reasons for devs to not come to PC. You can pirate on consoles just as easy as you can on PC.  

My idea wasn't that the op played the games illegally.

He's having acc issues and he owns the game.

So he should be able to play it in any way shape or form, as long as he has the license for the right platform.

I'm not saying he should pay twice. I just don't like pirating full stop. I would personally say it is one of the main reasons. But I thought it was harder on consoles? You have to "flash" your console or whatever to a custom firmware? But with PC, you download it and play it.

This is why I will never buy a GFWL game ever. I still can't believe there are certain games on steam that force you to install it. I have SF4 but that's because a friend gifted it to me and the experience was awful to say the least.
