    Please let us know the game you're playing, the system specs, amount of RAM, processor,etc of your machine. As an early guess, I'd say it may be overheating. Do you have to wait a while to turn it back on or does it let you reboot right away? Any idea what the CPU temp is when it locks up?

Do I have to be connected to xbox live to save my game


You only need to be singed in for xbox live if you want the gamer points that are worth nothing at all and to unlock achievements and get stuff for unlocking those achievements like profile pics from the game your playing and also get goodies for your aviator from the game your playing. Otherwise you dont need to be logged in to save. But if your using the cloud to save your game then yes you have to be logged in every time. You also have to be logged in to save stuff in multiplayer modes but you will be logged in anyways to play the multiplayer mode so no worries there. Hope this helps :)

hi there this should help ye out

Playing multiplayer with one Game Card:
Certain Nintendo DS games require only one player have a copy of the game to play multiplayer. Those without a copy of the game will need to download the game information from the player that has the game in their system.

This feature is available on games that have this icon on their packaging:
single_pak.gif
    To download game information:

  1. Insert the Game Card into the DS Game Card Slot on one system and slide it into place until it clicks. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  2. Tap the screen using the stylus when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. If the host DS system's Startup Mode is set to
    • Automatic. The game's menu will appear.
    • Manual. Tap on the box for the Nintendo DS Card Slot using the stylus to start the game.

  3. Turn on the other Nintendo DS systems. For each of these systems, when the main menu appears, tap on the "DS Download Play" icon on the right, middle side of the screen to display list of available games.

  4. Tap the title of the game to begin the download.

  5. See the individual game's multiplayer instructions for additional game play information.


  • Playing multiplayer with multiple Game Cards
    Games that require each player to have a copy of the Game Card inserted into the Nintendo DS will feature this icon:
    multi_pak.gif Because each individual game title has its own method for setting up multiplayer games, you will need to consult the instruction manual for that particular title.

When we try multiplayer on Your Shape: Fitness Evolved on Xbox 360, it logs out as soon as the second player comes in and logs them on instead of the original player, stopping the game.


you can play multiplayer on your shape but it is only online not side by side due to the wide range of movement necessary for compliance with the kinect. Unfortunatly it's not possible with this game unless your online with a buddy.

Fsx multiplayer problem


Hello,

When that message is displayed when logging onto anything means that there is another PC that is already logged into using the user name and password you just entered.

If you have more than one PC make sure you are not logged in on your other PC. If this is not the case someone is possibly using your details. You can also go to gamespy's website to the support section. You should be able to contact them and seek help on what to do about it.

Thank you for choosing Fixya!

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

COD4 Multiplayer makes computer fans loud and hot.


When you play online games it will usually require more system resources to power. Your processor also handles the data that is being sent and received during your online session. Some code for online games have more overhead than others. I do not believe that it has anything to do with your machine, but more the software and network overhead that the multiplayer game requires. If you notice that both single and multiplayer run on seperate executables...

Single Player = C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3sp.exe
Multiplayer = C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare\iw3mp.exe

Hope this helped!
