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 live with 3 other people (students), and hooking my 360 up to my laptop has been quite difficult so far; in that it hasn't worked yet.
First of all, the set up in my house is:
Wireless router downstairs
My Laptop Upstairs, connected wirelessly
3 other housemates, connected in the same way
At the moment, I don't have Xbox Live, so I don't necessarily require internet for the xbox. I do have Media Center though, and I wanted to mess around with the streaming and stuff.
I can't seem to set up a connection between the 360 and laptop; do I need a crossover cable? The 360 comes with a patch cable. I can't select ICS in my menu, it says the IP address is already being used or something, and the 360 setup thing says it can't obtain an IP from the DHCP server.
