Let me know, I would like to add you dudes to my player list or just simply looks you dudes up so we can pow a few games out on-line. Also, include your Gamespy nickname.

Mine is "Maximus", just as it is here on XBA :)

I must admit, my screen name is Maximus on gamespy...but, while playing the game itself on my TV, I use a different nickname. I have several that I switch from depending on how I'm feeling that day :)

So, when you see me on your computer, I'm "Maximus", but, on your TV screen I will be one of these:

Muff Diver ;)
Spanky :eek:
Papsmear :confused:
Crack Whore :p


hehe...I have many more...but, I thought I'd share those with you all :D

How do you change the name on your XBox, you know when the game is launching it says a different name from the one you have on Gamespy.

Nice, dude! Yeah, when you first saw "Muff Diver", did the name not crack you up?!?!? lol :D I'll be on tonight, but, I'll be solo. This Friday night, however, I will have a total of 3 or 4 dudes :)

i pretty much need lots of help with getting on gamespy. i got all the programs and stuff, but i think im missing some cables and crap. i dont got a hub, but i got a cable modem. i dont have a system link cable. im not a genius in technical vocabulary, but i do know a bit. can anyone explain what i need, why i need it, and how i use it?

CAL, say no more, dude. I will explain what I know to you:

This is what you need:

1. Computer (of course)
2. Broadband Internet access (Cable, DSL, etc...)
3. HUB (or Switch) - make sure it's 10/100
4. A total of three CAT 5 cables (NOT CROSSOVERS - just standard CAT 5 cables).
5. Gamespy Arcade software and Gamespy Tunnel Software (free downloads at www.gamespyarcade.com )

That's it! Now, this is how you hook it up:

1. Take your cable modem and attach one end of a CAT 5 cable into it. The other end goes into the "uplink" port on the back of your HUB (or Switch).
2. From port 1 (for example - because it can actually be any port) on your HUB (or Switch), attach another CAT 5 cable into it and the other end into your computer (back of the CPU - called an Ethernet port - don't worry, it's the only port it can plug into)
3. From port 2 on the HUB (or Switch), plug the final CAT 5 cable into it and the othe end into the back of your XBox. A green LED light will go on right above the input on the back of the XBox.

Note: If you have a Switch, it may have a Firewall...this needs to be disabled if you want to create your own game in the Gamespy forum. If there is no firewall, no worries.

Also note: This set up will allow you to use your internet anytime...you don't have to move the HUB (or Switch) or disconnect it. Everything works like a charm!

To get on-line:

Simply open up Gamespy Arcade and select connect. Go to the XBox icon and you will see "Halo", "Tony Hawk 2X", and "Nascar Heat".

To play Halo:

On your TV, select System Link Gameplay and pick your character! That's it! It's just like having two or more XBoxes at home hooked up in System Link play, but, it's on-line! It works the exact same way :)

Let me know if you have any questions! Remember not to make it more complicated than it is, it's really easy! I also am a computer novice and even I figured this out after some help! Your buddies won't stop calling you after they have played Halo on-line! No joke!!! Enjoy!

lol

ya i might play..it's kinda laggy though

Dude, it's vital to play people that have a ping lower than 130, otherwise, you will incur lag. Also, if the host is using only Cable or DSL, no more than three total XBoxes with low pings works without, or just minimal, lag :) You probably already know this...but, in case you didn't

Maximus, you bastard.

Anywho, think it's a good idea to have all XBA gamespy users add the [XBA]- tag infront of their usernames? Just a thought....

Anywho, I am done messing with the list for the day.
I added you Maximus, so all could try it out, and I added my username to my sig, for all to glare at.

Make sure if you use Game Spy, you sign up below, so we can get some XBA Battle Royals going :)
