    xbox live

    Can someone explain to me how to join friends in an online game? Just got COD: black ops and so have a few mates. Problem is I can't seem to join them, when they send an invite to me as it will say 'session no longer available' (or something like that). Thing is they are in a game and I can see them there. Should I set up a party? No idea what or how to do it.

    + When I try to join a party it says it can't connect

    It's possible your NAT is strict, run the Xbox live connection testy thing and see what it says.

    In Black Ops I can press Y to see friends playing but the 'join session' is dark so can't select it And when an invite is sent i'm told the session is no longer available. Now if it was at my end why would I get that message 'the game session is no longer available' ?

    Its just teething problems - my brother was getting the same thing before.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    Did the test again on the xbox and all ok no message to sat my NAT is moderate or anything. Watched a video on youtube which went through it which placed the xbox outside the NAT, but I don't need to do that as the xbox test is all ok. As I said no message or anything.

    So my NAT is open if the network test goes ok with no message? Do I need to set my xbxo outside the NAT? Even though as far as I can tell its open. After a while I can join friends who are playing, maybe because someone has left the server?
