I'm playing DS1 on XBONE BC and just got a 30 day Xbox live gold membership trial. But when I turn the game on, it still gives me the message that my multiplayer privileges are blocked, and it starts the game in offline mode. It also prompts me that I'm signed into xbox live (the little pop up in the top right corner). Any thoughts?

You obviously didn't activate your gold membership correctly. Double check to make sure.

My gold membership has been activated correctly--as I stated in the post, I see the prompt that I am signed into live. I can also see that it's been activated under subscriptions, and I see all the other gold content, and it works with other games.

Edit (sorry friends I don't know how to edit my original post...)

Now when I sign on, I no longer get the "privileges blocked" message, but still no messages/summon signs/bloodstains. I can leave my summon sign on the ground. Help!

Sounds like a connection issue. What's your speed and ping?

Make sure you are not in a 360 party. Pribate chat is ok. Party on xbox one is fine too.

Thanks all. I'm not in a party, and connection is fine. Speed is about 70 mbps download and 7 mbps upload.

So I pretty much gave up. Multiplayer works just fine on Dark Souls III, but not on Dark Souls I. I've concluded it simply doesn't work on Xbox One, either because the servers are empty or it's just not supported. Oh well.

That's not true at all

It may not be as busy as once was but it's out there. If you don't see any messages on ground than something is wrong on your end.

I got 1000% proof if it's the game or connection.
Turn human and wait in forest. If you don't get invaded than your internet/connection is messed up.
If Sif is dead than you can't try this.
