Max Payne 3 Activation

Hey guys, I bought max payne 3, but I activated the game to my wrong social club account. I noticed that at that moment, I signed off and signed in to my new account, well, it didn't ask for activation code again. I played the game, collected many golden guns etc. but today I tried to join multiplayer for the first time but I couldn't do it. Then I signed in to my old account again and I could join multiplayer. The problem is, my old account is registered as under 18 year-old and so I can't achieve any of the games at social club site with that account. So all I need to do is to revoke the activation from my old account and apply it to my true one. But I don't know where I can do that - I reinstalled the game, it asked for activation again but when I wrote it, it said "it's used"

Help me..

You have to contact Rockstar and have them do this manually.

I have the same problem too. I activated my key but social club logged into my old a.k.a. the wrong account. I have everything now on my new account (crews, friends and SP stats) but i can play only SP with that.

I dont know how to activate key for my newaccount. I saw that reinstalling doesnt fix the problem. :sadpanda:

@ToriksLV Yes, the exact problem. I found this:

http://support.rockstargames.com/ent...quest-deletion

As you can see here, you can submit a request to delete your social club account. But according to 4th clause, I couldn't understand what will happen to my activation key if I delete the account? If I will be able to use my key again to activate another account (my true account), I will submit a request to delete my wrong account. Answer that for me please.

So what? Because we saw on rockstar support we had to delete our account to change our name, we are stuck without multiplayer?

Wtf.. Please rockstar fix it.. It's so unfair..

I'm trying to find an answer to that, will the key still be valid for use after the deletion? It MUST, but I don't know if it is..

not meaning to upset anyone and not that this will be any help but it does state clearly that this activation will be locked to the social account you have signed in to , it even gives you the option to back out and login into another account so you don't do exactly what you have done , can't see rockstar doing anything about this but then again you may get lucky

@RockstarSupport Deleting the old account will delete the MAX3 activation, so can i make a new and activate to that account?



@jocphi The activation is permanently tied to that one account and the key can only be used with that one account.





Really nice seriously.. I want a refund.. It's not fair..

Pff.. So I wasted all the money? Games are much more expensive here in Turkey, and I won't be able to play the game just because of one stupid account mistake? That can't be true. They must give me a new serial and delete the wrong account. That's what Support should do.

I'm not one of those blamers, I LOVED the game, it worked without any problems and I could play as maxed out without any optimization problem, but those answers that Support gives me are making me mad. So what, I won't be able to play the multiplayer of the game which I paid for? The answers they give are always like this: "Sorry, we can't do that at the moment, maybe in the future." And of course we all know that this is a lie, nothing will be solved in the future.
