    You need a working internet connection to play this game.


    Any figure a work around for this issue? I get your game is up to date, then loading that does not go past 10%, then an error message that says You Need A Working Internet Connection to log into ffvii.

    I'm having no connection issues with ANYTHING else. I have turned off all firewall possibilities, I have registered the game to my profile.


    Any ideas?





    Edit: also no proxy is checked.

    Same exact issue. I noticed a couple patch updates when I first ran the game...think its launch day bugs. I dislike DRM if there going to do it then make sure they do it right so this stuff dont happen.

    Sigh, diablo iii all over again...





    At least I KNOW I like this game.

    Same...."You need a working internet connectino to log in.."





    Starting to feel like this wasn't worth the $0.99, especially considering the disproportionately large number of complaints.

    Oh, I'm sure some wonderful people will be able to resolve those pesky internet connection-related issues momentarily.

    The Ironic part is Im at the end of disc 1 of my epsxe ISO of the game, going perfect game outside of 99 of items, (which is silly if you ask me), litterally about to go get Aeris/th's final limit and this came out haha.

    I had this issue at first too but eventually it worked... perhaps after the servers calmed down some. Ever since then I have been able to boot the game just fine, so if you're having trouble, just keep trying - maybe reboot your PC.

    So what happens if/when your connection craps out randomly? Do your save files go with it or can they be stored to the primary HDD?

    I think the saves will also be on your HDD, at least that's how it seems to me.

    Ok, I had this issue at first also. I'm wondering if I accidentally entered the challenge code instead of the product serial number into the launcher's initial activation sequence.

    What I did to get this working was uninstall the game and open RegEdit. I searched for "FANTASY". A reg key under "DSS" came up. That ended up being where the app/game stored my serial key. I deleted it.


    EDIT: I deleted the entire "DSS" registry key; not just the xml with the serial/challenge code.


    Rebooted my PC and re-installed the game. Works fine now. I'm not telling you all that this is a sure-fire way to fix the issue, but if you know your way around your PC's registry, you might be able to get this to work for you as well.

    same

    Yes, please, someone crack this game so paying customers can play it.

    Just so you are all aware, you only need an internet connection the first time you try to play the game to register it. Once you have done that you can play the game without an internet connection. When you open the client it will say error, but there is the option to continue and play the game normaly without an internet connection. You will lose cloud saves since it uses the internet to do so, but I'm sure most don't care about that much.

    Aren't the saves stored locally as well? I think that would be pretty asinine if they weren't.

  22. #22

    Yes, saving is stored locally on the machine. I said cloud saves are what you will lose with no internet connection, which is what allows you to play your saved game on another pc.

  23. #23

    Downloading was hard enough, connection even worse, and half the time you cant save the game without just sitting idle at the save screen for 5 to 10 minutes.


    You essentially wanted to be cute and make a steam like platform for all your fanboys, and what you did was make an (obviously) not tested rerelease of a game that should've just been on steam to let a real development company handle issues like this.


    This is outrageous, I should've just hooked up my PS1.

  24. #24

    I've had no problems playing offline.


    Now when I try to play while online with the cloud saves....yeah not so much.


    But offline mode works just fine.

  25. #25

    Just launch it on Steam or GoG already SE!!
