How do I connect 2 or more players with the xbox controller?



Hi,

Follow these instructions:

  • Set up your Xbox Live connection by connecting your Xbox 360 to high-speed Internet. There are two options: connecting it to your network via Ethernet cable or connecting to your network via a wireless adapter. The simplest and fastest connection is connecting via Ethernet cable directly to your modem or router. If you must connect wirelessly, use the Xbox 360 wireless adapter, sold separately. See the Resources section below for connection tips.

  • 2

    Test your Xbox Live connection after connecting your Xbox 360 to your high-speed Internet. Navigate to the dashboard, select "My Xbox," choose "System Settings" then "Network Settings." Run the diagnostic test to confirm your connection works. Your Xbox 360 will offer troubleshooting tips if the test fails.

  • 3

    Create an Xbox Live gold account. Log out of all profiles then press the "Guide" button and choose "Join Xbox Live." Follow the prompts, entering your billing and personal information. You will also choose your gamertag during this process, which will serve as your online name and identity. Lastly, you will customize your profile. Your Xbox 360 will then create the account.

  • 4

    Insert your Xbox Live multiplayer game and open the game's Xbox Live multiplayer menu. Different games have different options but certain features remain the same across all multiplayer games. There is the TrueSkill ranked matchmaking system, which pits you against players of similar skill levels. There are also unranked player matches, where you can practice and hone your skills in a non-competitive atmosphere. Lastly, there is the quickmatch matchmaking system, which automatically searches for games for you, whether they are unranked or ranked.

  • 5

    Add and play with friends. Xbox Live allows users to add up to 100 friends. Add a friend by pressing the "Guide" button, navigating to the "Friends" tab, then selecting "Add Friend." Type in your friend's gamertag then press the "Start" button and choose "Send Friend Request." Your friend will need to confirm the request to complete the process. You can play multiplayer games with friends by opening your friends list and inviting them to a game lobby.

  • 6

    Communicate with friends and opponents using an Xbox 360 headset. The wired Xbox 360 plugs into your controller. Once it's plugged in, you can speak into microphone and listen to others from the ear piece.


  • Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

    On my xbox 360 i can't connect to my friend and he can't connect to me and he told me i needed to change my router settings and i don't know how too and i have a DI 624


    You trying to do a system link? If so then you just need to use the network cable you got with the xbox360 put one end in your computer and the other in your friends xbox. This will link your two xbox's without the need of going through the router. If you want to use the router to connect each other you will have to set up the network IP addresses that are set for your network manually. I can't tell you how to do this as I don't know anything about what network setting you using. If you want to connect to your friend over xbox live to play together sign up for select join xbox live from your avartar screen and sign up for xbox live you both will need an xbox live gold account. Once your gold accounts have been set up add each other as friends and then you or your friend can invite each other to games just remember that you both need a copy of the game you want to play in any case.

    While play a game (red alert 2) the game screen does not fill to the edge of the monitor like it should. There is a black border all the way around.


    Hey

    its a very simple and easy to solve problem. The display driver is not set to scale the picture to full monitor. instead it shows it on the center you have two options

    1. change the resolution in red alert 2 to higher (1024x768)
    2. or find from your display properties -> advanced -> scaleing settings. the picture needs to be scaled to full screen instead of shown on the center.

    it is somewhere in the settings, I don't know exactly where because it varies from laptop to laptop.

    go and try to find it, if you really can't find it we can do a remote support session and I'll fix it for you.

    Thanks and good luck.

    also you can try : right click on c:/ in my computer and click properties then disk clean up and it will calculate , when the next window pops up it will show you the description of files to delete and you can click on the more options tab to also remove old restore points or windows components ( not recomended )
