    Hey fellas, just wanted to invite you guys to some Halo action this weekend. I'll be looking forward to playing against some HTF members for some good, clean, Halo mayhem!!

    Here's the info.

    When: Feb 20 & 21 (this fri & sat)

    Time: 7pm (est)

    where:XBconnect.com

    Sever: Lex Luther21

    password: HTForum


    XBconnect is very easy to use, if any of you don't have Xbox live, this is a nice substitute. All you need is a high speed connection and some ethernet cable (& possibly some USB cable) and your good to go. NO ROUTER NECESSARY!!

    I have an upspeed of 760+kps, and a down load speed of 2.4 mbs so there should be very little lag.

    Being a relative noobie to the online play of HALO,
    I have to ask this question.
    This is an XBOX connection, but can I join using my
    computer?
    I have a DSL hookup & have been playing online about
    3 weeks now.
    It just does not seem the same as playing against the
    computer. I have completed the game at the "Legendary"
    setting, but keep getting my a$$ waxed online

    I don't think so Cam, because you have to put you xbox on the looking for games screen to connect. If I'm wrong some one please chime in.

    I am able to join games by giving a specific IP
    address.
    Do you do this with XBL?
    I would think that if I put in the correct address,
    that I would be able to join, although I have not tried
    this yet.

    Well with xbox live you just connect automatically. I don't know how they do it exactly. But a pc and a xbox, I would think they'd need some type of tool to help them communicate. It would be like trying to get a xbox and a playstation to be compatible with each other just because they have the same game.

    With a PC, you just connect "automatically" over the net through different game sites, HALO for PC uses "Gamespy", it defaults to it off the disc.

    I figure, if you used the same IP address, who cares if
    it a PC or an XBOX.....

    But then, I know next to nothing about computeres & such!
