I just realized called you Tanooki bc of your avatar :lol:

Just hopped a few crazy Halo 2 games.

I also just bought a copy of PS2 SOCOM II on ebay. There's xlink users on every night playing that as well. Looks super easy to set up. It has the PS2 network trouble shooter right on the disc itself.


Haven't had a chance to revisit. I was out of town Fri-Mon and getting back I've been slammed with work and kids. I literally put kids down around 8:30 and am in bed by 9:30 (adulthood sucks sometimes). I will try to get back on this this weekend though.

One question, for some reason i got the impression in one of the how-to videos that the xbox may need to be connected through the port of the computer running XlinkKai, not the router. Do the xbox just go through your modem like the rest of your network devices when running kai? I ask because my PC that is running everything is actually a surface pro, which only connects via wifi. Wondering if this has anything to do with me not having any luck connecting to a lobby.


I have everything running through my router/gateway. My laptop isn't really near my xbox. It's hardwired into the router/switch via a cable run in my office desk area. I can test via wifi but expect the same results.

I didn't want to mess with plugging the xbox into the laptop. Seemed like a goofy set up. My xbox is right by my router. Seemed much easier to go into router for both.

[Add] Feel ya on kiddos. I was passed out by 10p last night. Week hits me hard by Thursday. Worth it, but try to cram in gaming on weekends when they're napping 8)

@8bit, I was researching how to connect my PS2 for SOCOM II and ran across something for you as it relates to Halo 2...

I was wrong above. If your laptop is wireless, the complete set up changes entirely. If laptop is wireless, you then connect the oXbox (or PS2) to the laptop via Ethernet, not to the router.

I have both going into the router, hardwired.

Any1 want to jump on some Halo 2 multi-player? Keep in mind this works on a 360 over wifi as well.

I actually just got it running on the 360 for the first time today. Just the first time I've bothered with my oXbox usually plugged in.

Ther are 95 people playing right now. They're all logged into South America. I jumped right into a game, but I think it'd be cool to get a NA game rolling. Let's look at doing a meet up one night. Happy to help with any testing beforehand.

I really need to get on Discord with y'all. Could come in handy here.

Keep fighting the good fight with Xlink Kai, brother. If my priorities were different, I'd definitely join you. If you ever want to get a fightcade match going, you could get me really motivated for that.
