what is up with aquaduct for mac? i downloaded it off here so i could play xbconnect and when i open it it says that the beta has expired and i need to update - then on the site there is no updated version. any tips? any alternative mac software to run xbconnect? or should i just get a windows emulator and use the official xbconnect program?

actually i'm using a right-click mouse with my mac, with scroll wheel and all

and the reason we are on xbox-scene is because we play games on xbox - not PC

and with virtual pc, i can run pretty much any windows program on my mac

and the mac-only software, limited as it is, is extremely good at what it does. i record music on logic express and it sounds amazing (if i may say so myself biggrin.gif )

also, macs are cool as fuck. just look at one. OS X looks really cool as well. much better than windows and it's big grey boxes or windows xp with it's rubbish blue boxes that tries (and fails) to emulate the sleekness of OS X

and for your information i used to own a pc, but it got so infected with viruses and adware that i could no longer remove them. it didn't let me install new programs, go on most websites or use the task manager

give it about a year and pretty much all new programs will be released on mac, and windows will fall behind

yeah, the comparison between PCs and macs is a lot like that between IE and firefox. while IE can be twiddled and most pages are debugged and tested on it, firefox makes sure your safe, and has extra functionality

have you had a look at XLink Kai? www.teamxlink.co.uk

its a tunnelling app that runs on Win32, *nix, OS X, WRTs, etc. not only for xbox, but also for PS2, PSP, GC.

just got onto XLink and it's amazing! thanks!

one question - do you have to have a modded xbox to play modded/hacked games on xlink?

well i've played a few and they were quite fun (the usual - machineguns fire grenades, warthogs fly, rocket launchers spawn spartans) so to play on some custom maps i've ordered an x-ecuter 2.3b soldered chip. is that a good buy? (i'm intending to solder it myself)
