Can I play my PC/Online game with friends who have Xbox version? Wed, 04 January 2012 11:06
Hi all,

I have the PC / Online version and wondered is it possible to play with my friends who have the Xbox version?

Thanks in advance.

Sadly no. The Xbox version is run on a different server than the PC/IPad/Ipod version.

Sorry!

Could we add that to the wish list for future features because I would love to be able to play with them.

Unless ... is it possible for me to provide them with the PC Version and they use their xbox live account on their nodes (either laptop or desktop)? Not sure if this would be counted as piracy? If so can understand that I wouldn't be allowed to do so.

From what I understand, it won't happen. Xbox live is run by Microsoft and thus it is on THEIR (Microsoft) servers, not Days of Wonder. Not much that can be done about it.

Can you not team up with MS and sync it? i.e. have the live account username and email address used for days of wonder so that they can be integrated?

TtR on XBL uses the XBox Live service only to connect the players to a match. Once the match starts it then switches control to the "Host" (person that started the match). At this point the match is then only seen by the XBoxes involved. This data is encrypted to prevent tampering.

There is literally no amount of money that can be spent by anyone to change this design of XBL. They have 9 years invested in it.
