Long Version:The issue is that I purchased the game dark souls through steam, and saw that it needed games for windows live. I saw this and decided it would be easier just to play it offline. So I made an offline/guest account or something along those lines. I put about 100 hours in on this account. Before that point none of my friends played the game so I was content with offline play, but now some of my friends have purchased the game, and would like to play the game with me. the problem is that i have created an online account and my saves wont transfer to this account. I have tried massive amounts of file manipulation, i have edited code for the saved files, and much more, but because your software has absolutely absurd anti-cheat systems I can't move 1 measly save. Would it at all be possible to convert my offline account to an online account so i can just enjoy this game. Please someone help me, I may hate microsoft for everything short of Office 2010 and earlier and windows 7, but if I could get some help with this it might change my opinion of games for windows live.
Short version: can my dark souls saves be moved from an offline account to an online account, and if not can i make a guest account into a normal online account.
Things I've tried:
Moving/renaming saves in documents
Moving/renaming data in appdata
using a hex editor to change data in saves
I have not, and will not cheat to modify my online account
PS:This post is in this section because your website is impossible to navigate and had a dead link where game progress is supposed to be; i am in web page design and i think this website is horrible for people who need help with PC based games. And for some reason whenever i tried to get help for PC based software it kept directing me to Xbox stuff.
