Xbox 360 DRM Update Out

And it fucking sucks

It requires you to be connected to the internet on both a computer and your 360 AT THE SAME TIME and then, get this, redownload all your content again - EVERY FUCKING THING - at one time at a time to reassociate your downloads.

Two problems

1) I personally dont have the ability to connect both my computer and the 360 at the internet at once, mostly because my modem is in the basement. I assume I can take my computer downstairs and do this one day which I most likely will...

2) I dont want to fucking download every single game/wallpaper/etc i ever did on my 'last' console. Which I will have to do since there's no alternatives

Anyways, just some for you

Enjoy!

www.xbox.com/drm

edit: apparently major nelson may be wrong - i might be able to do this individualy....to show you what im working with, look at this

system 1 277 0
system 2 332 1

1st number is the amount of game or software liscences like add ons or wallpapers, and the shit like that, 0-1 represent the videos.

i'll edit this later if im able to swing it

edit2: nope, im fucked.

why are they doing this?

if you upgrade to an elite or if you get a refurbed console you cant use any of your previously downloaded shit unless you're connected online - this is a pain if you want to use a theme or just play an arcade game. so you need to re license yourself which is a lot of work


apparently when you're redownloading content all you need to do is redownload it (not delete it) and it will just update the license, which will save time

edit: and to save, "you're dumb" flames - im just going to get a ethernet splitter and another rj45 jack to make my connection

XBL has been horrible for weeks. My friends and I haven't gone through a single night of CoD4 without it fucking up at least 3 times. Constantly telling us we need network connections, randomly throwing us back to the party screen, dashboard being slow / not working, invites not showing up, friends not showing up as online. My friend had to reset his 360 just to stop getting an error that wouldn't let him join games. Two times yesterday, I log off, log back on and find that I'm missing like 40 kills from earlier.

If this helps that clusterfuck they call a service, I'm all for it.

edit: no wait, they aren't fixing anything

Mine has been a little laggy at times this week but nothing you have described really o.0. I'm even using wireless that's on the opposite side of the house and in a basement

It's not an update for the xbox, it's a tool added to the xbox.com site. It allows you to condense all your DLC licenses to one 360. I'm on 360 number 3 and now stuff I downloaded onto my first xbox works on the one I have now as long as I can redownload it.

It's easy, just go to www.xbox.com/drm and make sure you sign in to your profile you want to mess with. It shows you how many 360's you have downloaded/licensed content on. Then you click a link or two and after that you have a half hour to sign in to the 360 you want tied to your downloads. Now anything that wasn't working offline before just needs to be redownlaoded and your current xbox will acquire the license.

Two observations I've made, it looks like it doesn't work on content for original Xbox games (so no PGR2 dlc for my 360 ) and if you downloaded something that isn't available on Live any more (like some free themes or gamerpics) then you wont see it in your download history and thus you can't acquire the license.

Ok so just to clarify this stuff, about five or six months ago my disc tray was fucking up so I got my system replaced at the Gamestop I bought it at. They gave me a new 360 out of the box and just let me keep my hard drive with it. I redownloaded all of the DLC I had and I can use the majority of it when I'm not online, but a few things don't work (some of the first GH3 packs that came out, like the Foo Fighters/Boss Battle tracks) unless I'm online. Do I need to do this DRM shit or am I destined to never beat The Devil Went Down to Georgia unless I'm online?
