Originally posted by =EGC= Serenity:Ive had good luck with GFWL games by downloading and installing the client from the official website. Go ahead and set up your account and profile etc before installing any GFWL games such as VT.It works better that way rather than having the game set it up.Give that a shot and see if it helps you.I just refromated and re-installed this game. So be aware you may need to ALT+TAB in and out of game to put your CD key into Windows live to activate, or write it down before launching the game. I had no steam overlay until GFWL patched the game for whatever reason so couldnt see key in game. And it wont patch until activated.
