Remember when Grand Theft Auto IV (GTA IV) first came out for PC, I blog that I will not be buying it because it has DRM. I really should have followed my own advice because during the weekend, I saw GTA IV at the PC Show and bought it because it has a very good discount.
Man, do I regret it now!
GTA IV comes with an ‘Online Activation’ which you have to go online to activate it. Only problem for me is that I can’t activate it online. I tried but it keep telling me that online activation is overdue. I went to Rockstar Games website and saw that there is a manual activation. It says that during installation, there will be a box that pop-up if you are not online that you can request for an ‘Unlock-code.
It says ‘during installation’ so that means I have to uninstall it first! Ok fine, a little troublesome but I gave it a shot. I uninstall it, off my internet, reinstall the game and there was no pop-up box. I can’t even enter the Rockstar Games Social Club to launch the game and everytime I tried to do a manual activation, it tell me it’s overdue.
I send an enquiry to Rocjstar, it’s over 24 hours and there’s still no reply. Anyone out there know how in the world do I get the game to start?
