Trouble with LIVE IDs...
« on: June 21, 2010, 12:41:07 PM »
Didn't know if this should be in Other Gaming or not, but thought I'd more likely find some help here seeing as it's more frequented.

Well, bought a 360 a while ago, and only just got it hooked up for me to jump on Live.  Problem is, it won't recognise my existing ID (which I got through Games for Windows Live) which is frustrating me no end. Anyone know how I can easily make my GFWL account link with a XBL one??  I've googled and googled and can't find any similar situation.  I start setting up live with my pre-existing email account linkined with the GFWL account and all is fine until I reach the choose gamertag stage, where it won't let me use 'martinroshak' because it's already in use, which I'm almost 100% sure is my GFWL gamertag...

But yeah, if you want any more clarification, fire the questions away, I'm about sick to death with it and just want to get it done  >:(

You need to recover your gametag not make a new one. There should be an option to recover your gametag, then it will ask for your Email and Password and then just let it goto work.

Thanks mate!  All set up now, although I have to go back and recomplete all those games again xD

It should remember all your achivments that you got when you was connected to the internet. So not too bad :D

Glad I could help ^^
