Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just bought an xbox 360 tonight and I'm already experiencing difficulties.
When going through the set-up process for the console, everything works fine at first. I'm prompted for language, country, etc. When I get to the portion of the set-up where I'm given the option to create a Live profile or an offline profile, neither option works.
When I try to create a Live profile, it tells me that Live sign-up currently isn't available. I couldn't find anything about this on Microsoft's site, so I assume it's an issue with my wireless. This doesn't really matter, since I'm only at home for a few days before going back to the dorms, where my wireless should be fine. I'm content to create an offline profile for now.
BUT, when attempting to create an offline profile, nothing happens. I confirm whatever name I've chosen, a box pops up claiming to be "Creating Profile," and then I'm dumped right back to the select name screen. This happens whenever I attempt to create an offline profile, and changing the name from the default has no effect. This is also distinct from an invalid name, which has a separate error box.
I've restarted my xbox multiple times and nothing has changed, and I've searched fruitlessly for any information about other people encountering a similar error.
