PC version not starting

i bought the game yesterday, Physical Copy, for PC

 

installed it without problems, started it and got the message

 

"The Rockstar Game Services are unavailable, Please try again later or check the online status page"

 

with 3 options "Cancel" "retry" "open Link"

 

Open link opens the maintenacne page of rockstar,

Cancel goes back to desktop

retry seems to start loading, but stops after a half a sec.

 

if im correct after this page comes the Social Club login, patch download and launch of the game.

 

But i do not even get to that point.

 

Rockstar supprt didnt help either. i tried alot of things already.

 

if i look up the problem on internet, most solutions are for problems that come after what i have.

 

have any of you here got a solution?

 

 

do i just have to smash 'retry' until it finally loads?

 

much thanks already

It could be that your firewall is blocking Social Club. Have you checked your anti-virus's or Window's firewall to see if it's being blocked?

This, if that doesn't work, try re-installing social club.

tried both already, seems the reinstalling social club is the solution for the "error 1" wich is during the club login, but i dont even get to that point, i tried it with disabling the firewall, had no effect.

So you're basically saying you can't even log into Social Club therefore you can't start the game...

 

To be honest I'm not really sure how you could solve this problem. I'm not familiar with the physical copy of the game :/

Well I can't get in the game either. I suspect Social Club is down now.

yups, i just downloaded the patch from an external source, hoping that would solve it, but not, still same messgae when i start the game, it doesnt even go to the login menu.

the messages they send back on their troubleshooting was that 'everything works fine on our end", if it was why do i get a mesage saying "the rockstar services are unavailable"

 

well, when i press the 'retry' button, it does get a 'loading' page for a tenth of a sec before going back to the 'unavailable' page.

somepone on the rockstar forum named Jeboaa told to reset the network adapter and reset the dns, that worked for me.
