I've had hell with a Modchip, Halo and system link
I've managed to successfully set-up friends XBOXs using cross-over and hub + standard cables in order to play 8-way Halo. It's huge fun.
However, I can never get my XBOX to work. It is a version 1 and was chipped a while ago with an eXtender mod-chip (no longer available to buy). Prior to chipping I used to be able to play Halo online using the Gamespy Arcade software. Since chipping I cannot play Halo online using Gamespy Arcade or play it system link. The modchip works fine using for all other modchip use e.g. EvoX, unsigned code and backup fun. I can do all the normal EvoX stuff with my XBOX e.g. ftp to it.
With my XBOX I have tried using static and dynamic IP addresses (via evoX), different cables and network configurations (both the hub and a cross-over) PAL, NTSC, and backup versions of Halo, swithing my XBOX to PAL and NTSC mode (using the Enigma video mode switcher) and everything else I can think of in order to get Halo working using system link / Gamespy Arcade.
Every so often I post a message to these excellent forums to see if anyone can help, as yet no luck. However, seeing as it has been a while anybody got any new ideas?
