I'm pretty sure only the official wireless adapter will work, but another option is to use a wireless access point which can act as a bridge with the wired network port.

Here's an example:

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to join that bungie group. There's no "join this group" link or anything.

As far as I can tell its the ONLY one that works with Xbox 360. So find a way to get a cord to your Xbox or else shell out another $100 on an item that by all rights should cost $40-$60 at the most.

eros: Make sure you are logged in. I saw a button right there on the linked page after logging in. It's pretty big too. It's about mid left of the page, right below the, "motto"

If you're signed into Bungie.net, the button to join the group is in the box that's titled "Welcome to Jatraqueros".

It's a link at the bottom of the box, which is -- of course -- blue on slightly darker blue.

Yeah, I think for the people who don't mind, either here or on the Bungie group, first names might be good. [Smile]

Why, would you feel weird joining a game by "demonstrocities" and saying "uhm, is this, uhm...eros...uh, ersomaniac?"

Haha... when we're playing online my friends and I interchangably use our gamertags or real names when communicating. I was starsnuffer for a long time and people still say " hey star..."

Hamson (Salmoncannons on xbox) and myself (Tak Galaman) are probably going to be online for way too long on saturday night. I hope we can find some of you guys to play with.

Why, yes, I would. I've already had to introduce Lime as Lime instead of his first name because I had a brain fart on his actual name. "Um, and this is my friend, um... Lime."

Or my friend Eric, whose tag is "mini swq" I just gave up and used his first name.

Nathan and I will probably be on a bit tonight with our friend Ethan (XIIIthArchAngel). And we'll probably be on some tomorrow night too (depending on how late we get back from the fencing tournament in Maine).

I'll probably be on Saturday night. If we're going to go by real names you can call me Mark or Marcus, whichever you feel more comfortable saying.

Oh, and I'm writing this on a wireless usb keyboard on a nintendo wii. I don't remember where but someone asked in some other thread if anyone had tried using a usb keyboard on a nintendo wii yet and they never got answered. I thought this might be the most likely place to say this and have them notice.

I will do my best to be on tonight. However, I am going to be on this afternoon with a friend of mine, trying to hand out some training in a custom game. Others are welcome to join. I expect to be running around, doing little shooting and dying a lot.

Thanks for letting me play with you guys, it's been pretty fun so far ( I've played with mack and T_Smith and I think Vasslia Cora so far). Is there going to be another get together tomorrow? I was also wondering if there'd be anyone who'd like to try to get through the campaign on legendary. I got through normal on my own, with a little difficulty, I think I'd like to do co-op for anything higher though. I'd really like help finding skulls, I've only found the one with the seven glowing rings combination thing.

It would be fun to schedule a coop night for legendary. If we could get four people we should be able to blow throw it pretty quickly.

If we only field 4 people tomorrow, I'd be happy to blow through campaign.

My kitten chewed up my headset so now I can't talk to you folks. That's probably an incentive for folks to play with me, I do tend to get too chatty.

Something like this

You typed in the link incorrectly, I fixed it.

The only reason I am sure it was the kitten is that not only was the cord severed completely, it was segmented into three pieces.

I wasn't able to log on to Live last night. I did the Test Connection thing and everything was okay except for the fact that I couldn't connect. It told me to check that my details are up to date but I don't know what details I should be checking. Anyone have any ideas as to what the problem is?

If I get it fixed tonight Ill be online. But 9.00 EST is 2am here so I don't think ill be able to join in anyway! But if you're still playing together come the Christmas holidays Ill be sure to make an appearance!

We can modify the time, you know? 9:00 EST thus far has been the only undisputed time slot of the week.

Could you folks sound off if you are coming tonight? I'll be on tonight.

I'm probably not going to be on tonight. I'm fighting off a zombie cold and I've been letting my reading pile up a bit. I will be on later in the week, however.

I linked my gamertag to my windows ID, and then logged into bungie.net using that ID

btw, I plan on being on at about 9:30 or 10:00 EST

then you will likely have to contact tech support to see if you can link your gamertag to a new microsoft ID, or reset the password. I would imagine they would do it as long as you still had the credit card that paid for xbox love

I'm KiIgore, with the capital i instead of lowercase l. I'm on quite a bit and would love to slaughter some mo-fos with y'all. If anyone is adverse to cursing, you might want to let me know before hand. I'm ranked at 15 right now, so I guess I'm about a 4 or 5 in this thread's ranking.

I finally got to play a game with Hatrackers! Blackblade sounds nothing like I'd imagined, although I can no longer pinpoint what I thought he sounded like previously. I'm easily the worst player of the crowd we were with, so I guess my rating system was pretty accurate!

I had a lot of fun, and I'm sorry I had to run early - Squish was tired and that was my cue to get back to work.

Thanks for coming out folks! Erosomniac also does not sound very Asian. [Wink]

All in all I had lots of fun. During one match the score was 46/49 and we were losing, I somehow got a hold of the grav hammer and as I encountered the other team T_Smith was drawing all their fire. 8 seconds, and a few swings later I got an overkill and we won the game. [Big Grin]

We had about 7 peeps during the evening. I'm planning again for 9:00 EST next Tuesday.

Would anybody be up for creating a killer custom map for us to try out next week? You'd have a week to create it. More importantly are any of you interested in trying out hatracker custom maps? We played that one zombie map two weeks ago where you had to jump into warthogs and try and keep ahead of the speedy gonzales zombies, that was way fun IMO.

ersomniac, squish needs to get a mic so I can actually hear another GIRL voice when I play!


Nathan will vouch that when I found out there was another chick, my comment was, "YEAY!"(I get tired of being the only girl sometimes.)

BB, maybe we need a theme challenge or somthing for said custom map.

I'm looking into it - in the meantime, we'll trade off. She's definitely sexier sounding than I am.

Criminey, your family came here in the late 1800s if not early 1900's? That's very interesting! Care to elaborate?

I actually don't know much of the family's history that far back. Technically speaking, since I'm from Hawaii, we weren't really "American" until the 1900's, but we were as close as you could get; one of my grandfathers was born in about 1904-1905 (I can't remember exactly), and he spoke no Japanese beyond what was incorporated into Hawaii's local dialect. I have no idea how his parents got to Hawaii, or how my great-great-grandparents on the other side got there.

But on both sides of your family you are of Japanese decent?

SWAT is a custom game that started in Halo 2 and Bungie eventually made it ranked on Live out of popularity. Everyone plays with Battle Rifle as Primary weapon, Magnum secondary. No shields, no radar, no weapon spawns, no power-ups, no grenades(sometimes), and no vehicles(also sometimes) allowed. It also can be merged with other gametypes like CTF or assault.

How many can be on live from one xbox? and if you can have more than one person, can there be more than one headset? And does each person need to pay for a live account?

Four.

Yes, the headsets connect to the controllers.

Um, no. They can play as a guest on your account, but they can't do ranked matches, just social. If they have a live account, they can play from that, but they'd have to bring their info on a memory card.

I have the infection game saved on my xbox from halloween, and that is a lot of fun. There are humans and zonbies, but when a human is killed by a zombie, they become a zombie when they respawn.

I personally am quite interested in most things Asian. Immigration is also pretty fascinating for me, the earlier the people moved here the more interesting IMO. I've always wanted to understand why there a big immigration of Chinese folks to California, as well why there was a sizable group of Japanese migrants who ended up in Hawaii.

Heh maybe, but the Indonesians, Malaysians, Vietnamese, Laoisians, Thais, Mongolians, Indians, didn't make similar migrations.
