    Does anyone on here run any Link 2005 competitions on Xbox Live? I've just taken part in one on the dvdforums and hoped there might be one running on here too. If not would anybody be interested in taking part if I organise one?

    That's what I was thinking of, at least you don't have to worry about getting online at the same time as everyone else then....

    OK , I've created a competition

    http://www.xsnsports.com/Links/Group/?lgid=21792

    The competition name is AVFORUMS and the password is 13845327 - you have 3 days to register before it starts, and a month to complete it.

    The competition is set to intermediate level and is over 4 courses with various (but not too difficult conditions.

    It's the first time I've set one up so apologies if I have made any mistakes.

    Good luck to anyone who takes part.

    Anychance you can set it up again with it set to beginner as i also only have a player as a beginner not in intermediate, or does it not make any difference?

    So have I , I only had a beginner player until I started anpther comp a week ago. Give it a try, the only thing missing is the line on the power indicator and 1 practice round with a new profile should get you up to speed. I was worried I would be pants but it turned out ok and now I can shoot 8 - 15 under par on a course on that level.....

    EDIT - I've just tried and I can't edit the settings now I've created it anyway so we will have to stick with this one. If no-one joins in because of this then I'll create a new one with beginner level (and be able to use my player with big stats!)

    I might join. Intermediate is definately the way to play, beginner is too easy and the hardest level removes the power bar altoghether. I'm sure that hardest would be ok after a couple of rounds, but as hardly anyone ever played it, there wasn't much point in practicing.

    Not played in an XSN tournament on links before. Someone in this thread said that we don't have to be online at the same time. Do we just play individual rounds and the scores get compared later? Do we just get one chance to play the rounds?

    You get one shot at each round but can play on your own. You connect to the XSN option, type in the comp name and password. Then you type in the code for the round that you want to play, play the round and the XBox logs your score on the SXN site (for all to laugh at!) You can play all the rounds in the same day if you want (I tend to) or spread them over the length of the comp. The scores appear on the website within about 10mins of completion.

    Having trouble registering. I have a passport account and I go to xsnsports.com. I can't seem to find any tournament lists I have an icon at the top left that I can click to sign out of the passport network. Under that is a list of sports, which includes Links, I click on that and get a picture of the game and to the right of that is a link for more info, which takes me to the xbox.com site.

    Under all that is another area of the screen telling me I need, The game, an xbox live account and a passport account. In the passport area is another icon that I can click on to sign out. To the right of that is another section with some options to click to find out more about xsn sports.

    What am I doing wrong? Don't remember having any trouble playing in XSN tournaments on Top Spin and Ralli Sport before.

    *EDIT*
    In the help section it says:

    The section at the top of the screen lets you switch between active competitions for each XSN Sports title. To select a competition, click on a title on the left side of the navigation area. Then, click on a competition listed in the middle of the navigation area. Finally, click on Create Competition or Join Competition to create or join a competition.

    Can't seem to get any competition lists. When I click on the sign out icons, the screen just refreshes and maintains the sign out icons, which leaves me wondering if I am signed in?

    Did you follow the link in one of my earlier posts?

    The competition is private so doesn't appear in the list. What you need to do is click on Join Competition near the top and then where it says search by competition name or gamertag type in AVFORUMS and it should take you there. :)

    Yeah, but I still had the problem. I think it's to do with the fact that I changed the email address asosciated with my passport a few weeks ago. It's all sorted now and I've joined up.

    Would you have any objections if I posted the tournament details on another forum that I post on? Might be able to get a few more people interested.

    I can't see that many signing up from there as it's a pro evo forum but I'll leave it a couple of days to make sure that everyone here gets first crack of the whip. :)

    Fast play is for when you are playing more than one player at a time online. You all play your shots at the same time and see tracers for each others balls. If fast play is disabled, you wait and watch while your opponent plays.

    It doesn't matter for this compo, as I understand it, as you play when you want and don't play with another person. Therefore the fast play or solo play option isn't appropriate.

    The competition starts today but because the XSN server is in the US it doesn't start til later today (just incase anyone was trying to get an early round in!) Therefore there are still a few hours left for late entrants.

    Sorry guys, just tried to play the first round and solo play is in fact disbaled. I've recreated the competition with the same conditions but enabled solo play;

    comp name :AVFORUMS2
    password : 344911

    you have until the 5th to register. Apologies for the cockup. :oops:

    Bishman , could you inform the guys on the other forums of the change?
