    blimey, i havent checked the stats yet - am i doing good??

    shows how many hours i was on it at the weekend!

    i thought the stats were in points not kills - in which case, planting a bit of demo and being the bod who gets the documents transmitted does your points the power of good!

    only thing which might balls up me playing 2night is that one of my best mates is getting online tonight for the first time so he wants me to show him the ropes.

    matiano i'll add you to my list :)

    To all the other guys i'm really sorry about all the messing about tonight it was are first time trying to host & nothing went right :(

    Any tips for hosting would be great :smashin:
    Like how do you up the lives each team has when playing elimination?
    as everytime someone died once that was it game over :confused:

    Spikey feel free to add some more stuff you need to know about hosting :)

    Geoggy, sorry mate. when I see you're online I keep trying to join, like earlier tonight, but it won't let me. Tonight it said your game was full :confused: :(

    I keep jumping in and out of games, and forgetting who's where.


    Spike, Jas - my xbox got a dodgey connection tonight, then it kicked me out,then I couldn't join again, sorry.

    Agreed it was a bit of nightmare :(

    I think I need to just play the game without hosting to begin with. There are so many setup options which is good but when you're so new to everything it can become a little :confused:

    One thing I didn't understand was when we did have a game setup correctly and I had saved everything why does it default back when you change a map?
    Does each map have it's own save?
    Changing games modes also had this effect and as mentioned earlier even though the Lives count was on 10 each time when there was a kill in Elimination that was it - back to the Win / Lose screen...?

    After finding myself in the thick of it in Geoggy's match I decided I'd had enough but why didn't I think of swapping teams
    :rolleyes:

    I'll certainly have another go tomorrow night.

    :)

    Well, we can join a public game, usually there's only 3 or 4 people playing, and you we can all play on the same side if wanted.

    Had a cracking game of beach invasion last night, the people playing had really got the knack of defending the documents.

    Couldnt work out where you all went last night. I was holding 3 on 3 no problems?

    Its probably best to not bother about hosting and just dive in and get used to the controls, the objectives and some of the maps.

    The best map to earn your spurs on is beach invasion. Its a small map and the objectives are simple.

    One other thing that takes a bit of getting used to is the change of pace from Recon. Its a hell of alot quicker which can lead it to feeling a little "unreal" - but once you get the hang of it, you soon realise that headshots have the same effect as Recon and that its vital you arrange with your teammates who is coming as medic, engineer, lieutenant etc.

    I'm online again all night tonight so i dont mind hosting. I'll show you the ropes liverpool and Spikey - half an hour and you'll be up to speed.

    :hiya:

    Geoggy thats really good of you, but if your going to show us please can you not throw us in at the deep end like last night :)
    I didn't have a clue who i was meant to be shooting :confused:
    Thats why we're trying to learn how to host on this game but that is harder than we thought :mad: the thing is when we host on recon it saves all the setting we had it on last, but this game doesn't seem to do that :rolleyes:

    OK mate. Wrists slapped. ;)

    There is no names over heads in RTCW - you have to look at uniforms mate - again takes abit of getting used to , but if you point your cross hairs at a team mate, their name comes up infront of them, but at first you do end up shooting teammates - but if you are a medic - just bring them back to life with your syringe!

    see you online tonight - SOLDIER!

    EDIT - if your Axis - shoot the Allies - and Vice Versa ;) Pretend the opposing teams are Man U fans and you'll be fine.

    I'll be trying to get my pal into the game as well tonight. i've been mithering him to buy an xbox for about 8 months and he finally got online last night. his name is oddb4all so you'll know who it is if i set up a private game.

    (another liverpool fan!)

    cheers

    Yeah this was great, really enjoyed it.
    Thanks to Geoggy and Bonesy for showing us how it's done.

    Some more hints and tips on a few more maps and who knows you may want me on your team.

    Cheers guys. :)

    Good game.

    Who was it that met me on the beach, both of us armed only with a pistol, and we spent 2 minutes running around in a circular fashion trying to shot the other in the head?

    (cos I got you first :smashin: )

    anyway, several times when the map changed, I got booted off. If the host doesn'ts end me an invite, I can't get back in:(

    God your modest aren't you? you remind me of myself :rotfl:


    I had no idea you got kicked :confused:
    Message to all the hosts, if one of us drops out of the game please send another invite as bonesy is right we can't get back in. which is daft if your on the hosts friends list & there is room in the game you should be allowed to join the game.

    Are you on tonight Bonesy?

    Noted!

    I tend to find if you get booted from a game, the best way to get back in is to quickly host your own game and send the host an invite, that way he will know you've fallen out.

    Bonesy did it last night and i get him straight back in.

    No show from me tonight. Tonight - "I KNOW KUNG FU!"
