Social Club Offline Mode Not Available
Bought the game a few days ago, I used the backup and restore function to copy the game from a friend of mine from his own account, and restore it to my own steam account. I don't know if this has anything to do with this error. I had tried numerous fixes I found on the Internet including this discussion forum about similar problem I have been facing. Although my socialclub launcher log shows a slight difference. Please help me solve this problem, it would totally make my day.

UPDATE:
I managed to get it to work, I connected my desktop PC to my phone's internet using WiFi Hotspot and it worked like charm, get to sign in to my existing Social Club account that I've been using before for La Noire, activated the game, linked to my steam, oh and selected the Remember Me option when I first signed in. If I were to connect my PC to my usual ethernet cable it will show as offline. Somehow my Ethernet is not being detected by social club, anyone know how to fix this?

Okay after conducting a few test, I found out it has nothing to do with wired or wifi. Turns out it has something to do with my connection since I am able to go online using a VPN based in USA (Im in Malaysia) but I dont think location matters, because I was able to use another Malaysian ISP to go online. Could it be that my current ISP block the connection?

Tried using googleDNS, doesn't work as well. Before it was set to automatic. Hmmm, but if they block my current isp, I shouldn't be able to access social club website, but I can. So what does the VPN do that enables me to go online? Weird

Yup ran the scanners, winsock commands, checked the host files and all seems normal, checked almost all of the social club offline mode threads, only fix is using VPN for me, which makes me wonder why... hmmm I was connected to US server via the VPN and was able to run GTA Online and play with other players, but the lag is noticeable because of the faraway server used.

*EDIT* I think I found the culprit, because my ISP is capped to 1Mbps and P2P blocked, and by research I found that perhaps Social Club and GTA Online uses some sort of P2P connection, thus preventing me from going online. Hence, using a VPN with bypasses the block enables it. Oh well, that is our crappy Malaysian ISP for ya. Guess I have to stick with some local VPN for now to minimize the lag....

Yup, I have set rules for those apps to be allowed through inbound/outbound in firewall. Nothing works except through VPN.

I FINALLY FOUND THE FIX THAT WORKED FOR ME ,
ITS A SERVER PROBLEM ROCKSTAR SOCIAL CLUB CAN'T CONNECT CAUSE OF THE SERVER , SO YOU HAVE TO DOWNLOAD A VPN LIKE SOFTETHER VPN AND JUST YOUTUBE HOW TO USE IT , YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE TO USE MOST OF THE SERVERS BUT KEEP TRYING ANY OF THE JAPANESE SERVERS TILL YOU GET CONNECTED WON'T TAKE MUCH TIME I PROMISE TOOK ME 20 MIN IN TOTAL AFTER DOWNLOADING THE SOFTWARE AND ONCE YOU ARE DONE YOU JUST HAVE TO CONNECT TO IT ONCE AND OPEN THE GAME AFTER YOU PLAY THE GAME FOR ABOUT 5 MIN U CAN UNINSTALL THE SOFTWARE SOFTETHER VPN AND PLAY THAT GAME BACK ON THE INTERNET THAT YOU USE OR OFFLINE :D HOPE THIS WORKS FOR YOU CAUSE I HAD YOUR SIMILAR ISSUE :)




after issuing a ticket to rockstar about the server issues and vpn , after a couple of hours when i tried the online without the vpn i was able to sign and they sent some form to agree to and was able to play with no server issues again .. so i'd advise you to send a ticket to rockstar about this issue with your social club id and steam id .
