First of all, YES! This is legal. So please don't close this thread :(

Hello everybody!

Like most of you, i want to play UC2 online. But to do that you need to pay a monthly fee to Microsoft. And some of you don't want to do that. There is a way to play online for free! Yes, completely free. But nobody is in this stage yet. Currently there are 2 groups: 1 that has decided to pay and one that has decided to play offline only.

Now i'd like to create a 3rd group to play online for free! XBConnect (http://www.xbconnect.com) just entered a new game to be used in there program. UC2! But when i got there, nobody was playing. Not even a Host. So i became a host and waited for somebody to join. But of course nobody joined so i made this thread! ;)

What do i need to do to play online for free?
Let me explain what XBC exactly is:
It's a program that you can download for free. It makes your Xbox think it's on a LAN and is connected to another Xbox inside the same building (LAN). But it's actually connected to the internet via XBC.
Download XBC here (http://www.nexbc.com/index.php?topic=Downloads)

You can connect your Xbox to your computer with any of the folowing setups seen in this link:
www.xbchelp.com (http://www.xbchelp.com/network/)
I use Setup C myself.

Also note that you of course need to choose "System Link" in any game instead of Xbox live ;)

For general help with this program, go to www.xbchelp.com (http://www.xbchelp.com/).

Support me and join #UC2 on irc.enterthegame.com! Thank you. :)

Have fun!!

Wow! Is this for real?

I don't own an Xbox myself, but livin in Saudi Arabia, its pretty hard to get Xbox live cuz you have to know somebody in the US in order to be able to subscribe (or so I was told), most ppl say if you put Microsoft's address it'll accept :p I'll definitly point my buddies to this link, so thanks for the heads up!

Anyways this is a nifty idea :) of course I doubt it will gain the amount of traffic xbox live has, initially... Does it even support stat tracking?

Anyway if you call they will come :p hope this works out for y'all...

Heh, these isn't really a UC2 XBC community... YET ;)

But yes, you can call your friend that like yourself doesn't want to pay to play... ;)

And no, there is no stats tracking i think. But does it matter? It's all about fun :)

on Gamspy Tunnel there are a few people playing, but there is another one I can't remember the name of (ask Tool) that has alot of people playing on it.

And yes it's legal. You just don't get any downloadable content.
