Is it possible to create a (local) gamertag without subscribing to XBL? Going online is no problem.

Nope... so far there's no way of faking it. You can link play, but the content is only available on Live or maybe some releases from magazines or demo disks.

I also need to create a fake gamertag to load up a certain savegame. In this post http://forums.xbox-s...howtopic=263552 someone claims to know the file where the gamertag is stored, but I think he’s probably referring to the xbox ”nickname” which is contained in E:\UDATA\NICKNAME.XBN, but I’ve emailed him anyway about it.

Isn’t it possible to backup your xbox live account settings to a memory card? If someone could do that and then access the memory card and tell me the names of the files on there that should help alot.

how many times does this have to be explained? xbox Live accounts are not files, they are stored in the partiton table, there is NO WAY to access them except through the MS dashbaords memory browser

as for the hurricane pack? it is illegal (piracy) to get this update other than from Live, or an OXM disc if its ever put on one

it is also illegal to access Live with a "fake" gamertag that is not part of a apid subscription

i mean think about, you pay money for Live, because you pay, you get extras, like downloadable content and online gameplay, simple adage, you get what you pay for
