I bought dark souls off steam and installed all necessary windows components to run the game. Worked like charm for first few days. All of a sudden i come home and now i cannot connect to GFWL and can no longer play DS online. Spoke with a GFWL support person who was able to get it somewhat working. Had to create a new windows user profile and sign in from there. but from what ive heard this does not work for everyone. also i dont want to make a separate account to play one game. last night i saw on the GFWL server status that there was a connectivity problem. checked again this morning and said that it was resolved so i tried to connect but no luck. i know all the proper ports forwarded, upnp enabled, no firewalls blocking it, etc. was wondering if anyone had any advice. have heard some things from having to accept some terms of service agreement of xbox website.
also i could not sign into my account but when the GFWL support person signed into a test account on my computer everything worked fine (had some software that let him control the computer remotely).
link to post in steam forum with other people having the problem.
if anyone can help please let me know. thanks.
