    Can't play Max Payne 3

    I am lost.

    I bought Max Payne 3 on Steam and can't make this game work. More exactly I can't log on the social club to play the game. The game tells me I am not connected to the internet, but I am.

    I tried several things: openning ports, disablying firewalls, reinstalling everything, putting the game in win xp compatibility mode. I opened a ticket on the Rockstar website but they closed it without answering me...

    I am really pissed off.

    Anyone had this problem and solved it ? Because it sickens me... I don't give a f**k about multiplayer and I am forced to log on their garbish social club to enjoy the solo mode...

    2 choices, crack it or contact steam support for a refund
    I'm failing to writing a blog, specifically about playing games the wrong way

    Put your PC into the 'DMZ' in your router (e.g. make it the default route for all traffic)

    Disable Windows Firewall (or if you use another - disable that)

    Sign-up - do whatever it wants - and I'm pretty sure on subsequent plays it won't give a shit about no connection (so you can remove your PC from the DMZ and re-enabled the Firewall)

    Had a similar issue, and it turned out that I wasn't using the most recent version of Social Club (for some reason?). I manually downloaded the patch from the Rockstar site and it worked fine. (I would try that first)

    And I can confirm that trjp is correct - RSSC doesn't seem to give a haply crap once you've signed in already. I can run LA Noire in offline mode with no problem. If it's still giving you a hard time, try signing up on the Rockstar Social Club site (http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/). It could just be reporting the wrong error.

    Lastly, could have to do with your Microsoft .NET framework. Try downloading the most recent version and attempting to log in again.
