Ok... my friend and I is both all set to play. We are trying to play Moto GP2. So my question is:

Do I just start the game and create a game under the system link menu in the game? and He starts his game and searches for a game? Thats the way we tried, but we cant find each other. We can see each other in the chat in x link and everything, but we cant play.... How EXACLY do you do this %&% ??? uhh.gif

And how do you play a game like Midtown madness when you only can select xbox LIVE as an option, I cant configure an account there...

Anyone????

Ok what you need to do is go to rooms mode on xlink...

one of you create a room (in Xlink), the other one joins it.

start up your copy of the game you want to play if you havent already.

both use the System link option in the game (dont touch Live)

one of you create a game, (on the xbox)

after a few moments the room will appear on your xbox screen, join the game and play.

For midtown madness use the system link.... you dont need a live account.

One thing I forgot to mention,

when you get to the point of playing if it dont work, check to see if you can see a local xbox + remote xbox(es)

If not you may not be configered correct...

... before you start messing with settings, close xlink, restart pc + xbox and give it another go.

and if that dont work rtfm

Only one thing... one the page it says that Midnight Club II is supported, but I can only see the LIVE option, not the direct link option... I ment this game earlier, not midtown madness, my bad....

Thanks for your help!

go here .. www.teamxlink.co.uk .. go to downloads .. download XLink 7.4 Beta .. install and run XLink .. click game arenas at the top, go to a game arena.. if it works , all you have to do on the xbox is load the game , choose system link , create a game or join .. enjoy kai :]
