Hey guys,

Well, as most of you know, ShadowDancer posted a thread, asking for apps for the job to run the Q & A Sticky, and I was chosen. I will be running this sticky, with his help at times, as well as the XBL Gamertags list.

If you see people asking questions in the actual forum, then please direct them to this thread, to clean up the threads that can easily be answered here!

I am not really asking for a certain "Format", but please structure it so that it is easy to understand.

Thanks,
*Raiden.

Edit by ShadowDancer: only post here if you have a question, or an answer about online gaming. We'll have something set up soon and you can find your answers here. Don't post here, if you're requesting something (we've got the forum for that)

Would a video captured on the Xbox 360 with a Dazzle 90 look any better than an Xbox video captured on a Dazzle 90, or would the capture card drop more frames because of the higher quality picture?

It would depend on your computer, and video outputs.

It would possibly look better on the Xbox 360, but it'd depend on your computer's processing speed, and it's video card.

Also, this should be in the Tech Support forum, but I don't mind answering it.

this isn't a modding forum, it's about Online Gaming, so that means XBL, XBC, XLink etc.
If you have a question about modding, go to the modding forum, found here

Hi, a few months ago my mum was mugged outside my house and they stole her handbag....which contained her credit cards......which I subscribed to xbox live with.
Also, my friend attempted to mod my xbox and he screwed it up....comes up with loads of different error messages then stops even playing games

I was wondering if I could get my original account back but on a different credit card and xbox?

any suggestions

Most likely Not on another credit card, but if your mom went through the proper procedures, then it won't matter, and she'll already have a new credit card, same # and all. If not, then I'd recommend contacting Microsoft's Xbox Help Line: 1-800-4-MY-XBOX (phone #), and selecting the "Xbox Live help" Service. Make sure your mom can talk to them, because it was her credit card. I would recommend canceling the account, and then renewing with a new credit card. If you are lucky, they could transfer payment to a different credit card, but you might have to pay a fee.

As for getting your account onto another xbox,

Go to the Microsoft Xbox Dashboard, and select "Xbox Live". Then go down to "Account Recovery" input the correct data, and boom, your live account is now on that xbox. Remember, your account can only be on ONE (1) xbox at a time, once account recovery is preformed on one xbox, it will become invalid on any other xbox(s) you had the account on before. It is like that so if your xbox or account is stolen, you can get it back. Smile

Also:

A large Thank-You, because that was an awesome question, and I appreciate it Wink

Glad to Help,
*Raiden.

yes and no
there are less waiting times - but you have to search for your own games
there can quite often be less lag because you know where your opponents are situated so for me being in England I generally kick all americans unless they have a soopa connection
xbox live is better though because of the friends list and other cool make-life-easier addons

for this, check the Technical Support Forum. You'll need a capture card. This whole process you can find right there. The filming on XBL isn't that hard, just press record while you're playing/acting Wink

Depends on what you favour,

XBC can have a ton of lag, but then Live can too.

XBC has nice people, and not so nice people, Live as well.

I personally like Live better, because you don't need two internet connections (not a problem for me..), and you can just hop on your xbox, instead of finding a room and joining and going through the hassle!

Go to the settings in the Microsoft Xbox Dashboard, and then to Networking, then go to the DNS server settings, and reset them to Automatic. There, should be fixed, PM or reply if you need further help.

Well... as for the question:

go to:
This Link
To get the program in the first place.
Second, make sure your computer that runs the program, and your xbox can be on the SAME internet connection at the same time, simultaneously (sp?).

3rd, If you have problems, use the guide on the XBC site, it explains every possible combination of setups there is (other than bridging).

As for the likeness towards xbl, yea, it's somewhat like it, but it's just a system link with someone really far away (or not..). XBC has a friends list, and you can join their rooms, so it's a little bit like XBL's friends list.

Thanks for your question Smile

Ok I just recently bought a subscripiton code for Xbox live but I can't use it in my house because my parents have to use the internet every 20 minutes... no router, planning on getting one though.

Well anyway the question: When it comes to the entering the subscription code I do, when I try to go on it says the subscription code is invalid. Do you know whats wrong maybe? I try it at my nephew's house on his Xbox (bought from a cousin who bought it before Halo:Combat Evolved came out.) using a direct connection.

I've asked Xbox tech phone number thing and they say they don't know whats wrong, can you please clear this up for me?

In short:
-Do you know what I should do for the subscription code when it says it's invalid?
-Could a direct connection cause the problem?
-Could the date the Xbox was made/bought cause the problem?

In short...
1.sorta, it is either a conflict with a. expiry, entered wrong, or something on M$'s part. If you take it back to the store, I'm sure they would exchange it, if not, then technically they sold you defective merchandise;
2.no,
2.no.
