hehe not really to start anything, and by all means I'm not, but Banjo I can basically nail back every single statement you made with something Xlink has done
hmmm, piracy, which is the program that can run on a downloaded xbox, and is openly advertised? last time I checked that's pretty far into the gray fuzzy illegal area. - think that requires a XDK hmmmm.....
as to lag, it's the same all around, it's not because of the program but the host
There's an XBC forum on here for a reason, that's to be on the "scene" as you put it, it's not their fault they are a separate entity from XBMC and all that jazz.
Interfaces are to each his own, I prefer XBC's over Xlinks "MSN Messenger" ripoff look
Games is true, you will mostly only find Halo and Halo 2
Have you ever visited the XBC forums? Quite nice and well done. Maybe take a look?
To the actual question download both and try them out, go with what you like best.
I was on system linking from the start, with Gamespy, went to XBC when it was released with no chat and 2 xbox support, then tested out Xlink "Kai" - I played on the beta's beta haha with TD himself and played some PGR with him
. Test them out, download and keep both on your computer. They're basically the same overall as tunneling is concerned, same games, same network setup , etc.
