I've got a few original Xbox titles that are Live enabled.  RepCom, Battlefront 2, Halo 2 (plus map pack), every Ghost Recon (except Summit Strike) and Serious Sam 2 are just a few.

I had a look earlier on at connecting my Xbox to my PC to use the net, but in Linux I need to do quite a bit of configuring.  Should be a bit simpler in Windows.  I'll report back later if I get any further (I need to get the IP address and DNS server sorted at the moment).

:grumpy: :grumpy: ....no.... I have to install this program on our main comp.  (not my cheap laptop).  you have to allow this site access to you computer at all this Osik.  The site looks very sketchy in a this-looks-like-scam way.  So I'm not going to be able to play wicha.   Te weird thing is,that still lets me play live and all, just not with certain people.
I think it's only like that on H3 though, so if you get Cod4,or I get Graw 2 we might be able to play then....
     


Edit:  this is what i need to do...   but i can't make sense of it.... maybe Flyboy or Mark could give me a "how to, for dummies" version. they're both good at stuff like this......

Yeah, I am OK at networking, and I have set up a DMZ on a router before.  Generally, stuff like this basically means logging into your router and playing around with the settings.  Once you know where to look it isn't too hard to do.

I can't remember how to do it at the moment as I've only done it once a while ago and I don't have the ability to ply around with the router in my current house, so I can't refresh myself by playing around myself.  Once I think I can remeber how exactly, I'll be happy to have a try at writing a how to.

OK, I've decided to take the plunge and get myself and get myself an Xbox 360 today.  I'm also going to get the wireless adapter as on Amazon it's 14 cheaper then anywhere else and has only had good reviews, and since I'm getting a MadCatz stand with built-in cooling fans and battery charger I might as well get the adapter too (networking isn't my real interest in computing so I can't be bothered trying to hack into my router and set up a DMZ for my PC).

I've also found a place to get 13 months of Xbox Live for the same price as 12 months, so I'll do that as well (since my cousin told me if you sign up on PC first, like I've done, the 1 month free with the Xbox 360 isn't valid, as his friend found out the hard way).  So, within the next few weeks expect me to be able to play online in Halo 3 and Halo Wars under the new gamertag of ThermalSoarer (currently fb424).

UPDATE

OK, my Xbox 360 Elite is on the way and, I must say, it was very nice to see on the order both Halo 3 and Halo Wars listed at just 10 each!

Anyway, this summer I'm going to start playing around with XNA Game Studio and hopefully I'll get a game on community games for you all to try and hopefully, buy.

No, I was converted to the Xbox way the first time I played one (first ever game console I bought was an original Xbox, which I still have!).  Online gaming is something I've only recently been able to start experiencing, and It's only now that I've been able to get my own Xbox 360.

Now, it's just the matter of what games to get.  I've already got Halo 3 and Halo Wars coming with my 360 and I've got a bunch of original Xbox games that I can play so it's just deciding where to go from there.  I was thinking of CoD 4, but since the sequel is supposedly being released at the end of the year I may just wait until then to get that one.

Unfortunately, I'm probably not getting my Xbox 360 for another couple of weeks as it was delivered to my parents house and they've said I can have it then when I should be moving out of my temporary accommodation (although they need to come down anyway this weekend to drop off something I need for uni).  :(

Still, it's given me a chance to think through my plans for it more thoroughly and I'm really looking forward to the prospect if using XNA Game Studios to develop my own Xbox 360 games (which in turn I'll put on Xbox Live Community Games for everyone to buy  ;D ).  I'm going to start my first one this summer, and after that I may decided to scrap what I've done so far on the other game I've mentioned a couple of times I was making and re-make it as a PC and Xbox 360 cross-platform game (I guess depending on how well I feel I can get the controls right) using C# ad XNA Games Studio.

My current tag is in my profile, but once I've got the NXE update (blasted slow internet connection puts the download finishing in 2 hours!) I'll redeem my MS points code and change it to something I like better (which I'll update in my profile).  Unfortunately, I've got a slight colour problem at the moment.  I don't think my hardware is fully compatible with the Xbox 360 VGA output in PAL-60 format as I have no red colour on the screen at all (so everything is a bluey-green).  The current solution is to switch to PAL-50, but some games aren't compatible, with Halo 3 and Halo Wars being 2 of them.

Still, it's not ruined the experience much so I'll be on Live as soon as I can (and yes, I have a headset).

Just 15-20 mins to go until I have the NXE.  Then, I'll need to wait until I've got the map packs downloaded and subscribed to Live Gold before being able to play online. So, should be a few hours I guess before I'm ready.  Hopefully I might be able to find a solution to my colour problem in that time.

EDIT

Yes, I have the NXE, my avatar and my new gamertag (ThermalSoarer).  I've also sorted the colour issue (although now there is a sound issue... didn't have the sound cables in  :blush: ).  just got to download the map packs.
