When you signed into GFWL offline, did you create a *new* profile, or did you try to sign into an existing profile WHILE offline? If you did the former, and it's a separate profile entirely (And Offline profile, instead of a LIVE-enabled one running offline), then you're SoL, AFAIK. If you used an Online account while disconnected, then you should be able to just sign in normally.
I ended up doing the same thing with FUEL, and played through most of the game using an Offline account, and was extremely annoyed when it turned out I couldn't do ANYTHING with the saves used offline to use them with my normal, LIVE-enabled account.
Yet another reason I absolutely despise GFWL when it comes to *anything* mildy outside of a perfectly normal, "Sign in while online and play" environment. It breaks at the drop of a hat.
Yeah, that sucks man. Honestly, the way it handles profiles/gamesaves is the only reason I personally dislike it. I can live with everything else if it weren't for that being a total PitA.
I'm still a bit annoyed about it up and deciding my GTA IV saves were "Corrupted" after around 30-40 hours of gameplay. I know for a fact they weren't because I installed Xliveless and have been using my saves perfectly fine ever since; But if I wanted to got back to playing normally I'd have to start a new game. '-__-
