Default CoD Online

OK

My brother In-law and his wife have both been playing CoD4 (Modern Warfare) online and she has been using his character when he is not playing. Well she wants her own. She created an Avatar and set everything up, but it will not allow her to get online.

Ideas?

My first thought not seeing it is she is not logged in as herself.

Wierd,

she should be able to just select her profile and go. It connects the same way.

Is she playing the Mac version? I know I read something about Admin rights screwing with things.

Oh, and tell them to play on the Fubar HQ server. Bunch of great guys there and a much better game than just straight TDM.

Does she need to have her own account and actually PAY for one? They both use the same XBOX... Or just her own basic Live account?

if she wants to play a seperate character then yes they need two seprate live accounts.
the other frustrating thing is that they will not be able to play split-screen together it not a function the CoD has

Can't they play split screen on his live account? I played split screen before on COD4. That wasn't online though, so I don't know about the live stuff. I hate playing on live splitscreening. It sucks.

Get them to buy another 360 if they both want to play as their own selves. As far as accounts on 1 360 goes I think you can have as many as you want. As long as they are set up and paid for. I don't blame him for not wanting her to sandbag his stats. LOL.

nah no split screen online it silly imo but that is the way it offline campaign you can play split, but not on-line.
You can have multiple accounts on one 360 they can even by signed in at the same time (i believe up to 4).

Katy and i both have an account on the same machine as well as the monkey. We tried to play nazi zombies the other night with som friends in Mass. but we couldnt play because of the whole split-screen issue

Yeah split screening sucks. Why bother. Unless you have a 60" plus TV and it splits 4 ways, then no thanks. My 42" TVs suck when I split screen. I used to have a friend over to play GOW1&2 to complete the game. Hated it. When your used to a full screen.

Anyone playing tonight? I'd be up for some COD4 perhaps (it's been a while), SURELY some GOW2 and perhaps some puking on humans in Left 4 Dead.

currently all i have is CoD5 for multiplayer, I played L4D twice and got rid of it. it was fun but got bored quickly with it. Hock you have a free standing invation to what ever party i might be in same goes for Tuttle and the Ox (wow that sounds like a bad 80s buddy flick)
