    Default XBox Gaming on Line for Free! :)

    Well I got one of these which arrived today so I could race around the ring without playing for days to unlock the track in Project Gotham 2 and it's very good but I then thought I'd give online gaming a go as it mentions some software on the box that means you don't have to subscribe to XBox Live.

    Long story short ... that software no longer available but I found XBConnect and it's quite cool ... it runs on your PC and acts as a proxy for your Xbox fooling it into thinking you are system linking on a LAN when in fact you are playing with systems around the world ... had loads of fun on Halo 2 except I kept ketting killed

    Anyone else use this software?

    Is this the one which allows those boxes forum rules prevents us from mentioning not that I'm mentioning something like that or insinuating I own one as I've been told by a friend of a friend who has one that you can't play the official Xbox live with one but there is something else available.

    Just asking out of curiosity.

    You mean modified XBoxs ... I don't think there's anything wrong with mentioning the fact that these exist? Mine isn't ... it's totally standard ... I just couldn't justify paying for Xbox Live as I don't use my XBox enough ... I would suspect that modified XBoxs would work with this program though and I do believe you are correct in that they don't work on XBOX Live.

    So basically it doesn't need a modified box, but simply links two consoles over the internet as if you had used the system link with two boxes in the same room?

    Spot on! A cracking idea if you ask me and the main thing is it's completely free

    Nice idea and all legit. Doesn't involve modified/cracked boxes etc. or anything dodgy - simply connecting two boxes together remotely instead of locally.

    There's loads of 'em ... download and install XBConnect and it lists all the hosts online and which games they are playing ... then you can simply see if you have that game or not and join in

    Cool ... can anyone else feel a Vectra-C LAN gaming session coming on?

    Edit: I THINK Project Gotham Racing 2 is compatible ... how cool would a race around the ring be
