Dirt 3 GFWL Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi,
after some time didn't spend with Dirt3 I wanted to start it today and was forced to install it completely new cause of a new PC. At the first start the GFWL Client opens and asks for my account details and my Dirt3 key. I entered both correctly for tenth time now but the GFWL client always blocks me with the error message that my e-mail or password is invalid. I tested it several times with other combinations turning more and more crazy. Then I tried to download the GFWL Marketplace Client and logged in there with my e-mail and password also entered in the in-game Dirt3 client and everything works fine. Now my question, how can I fix this problem in Dirt so that I can finally play?

I hope anyone can help :s

create a local profile using the client within the game if you can't do tyhis through Dirt itself install either F1 2010 or 2011 amnd create one through them as I know there's an option on those 2 games for doing it.if you have them that is.

Thanks for help,  I don't know how but I tried it another time today and it worked. First I closed the log-in window of GFWL, then I logged out of the local profile and choosed to log-in with a new account. I entered my account details and everything works fine!

well the local profile system does allow access to all the singleplayer stuff so at least the game is useable multiplayer's another problem though thankfully not a problem to me as I only use singleplayer on these games

I really want to play DiRT 3, but i'm waiting because i know if i start playing it now, i'll get halfway through and it'll be transferred over to Steamworks, and all my progress/achievements will be lost.

Wish CM would hurry with the GFWL removal business, no idea why its taking so long. Don't know who thought it was a good idea to use the abysmal service in the first place tbh... Steamworks or no DRM from the beginning would have been much appreciated.

If it were a crap game, nobody would care about the GFWL, but since Codemasters make really quite excellent games, its a massive shame for them to be brought down with the horrible monstrosity that is GFWL.
