    xbla help

    hi all, been trying to play some old arcade games on the 360, sonic the hedgehog and streets of rage 2, i've finished them before but just fancied a play.
    However it will only let me play the trial versions, even when i re-download the full versions of the games, when i start them the say i nee to unlock the full version of the game.
    Just to reiterate; I own the games, it even says 'download again' when i go to them on the market place, and am connected to a gold live account.

    rep for any usefull help.

    Glad it worked mate :thumbsup:

    I've got a new console i've transferred the license and redownloaded Duke Nukem but I can't play it on my other accounts?

    anyone know?

    If you´re logged into LIVE with the account your purchased the game you don´t need to do
    the license transfer. Only if you wanna play the games offline or with another tag.

    Said it many times before
    When you buy stuff off the marketplace, you get 2 licenses with each piece of content.
    1 for the console, meaning you can play the games/DLC with any tag on that console, on AND offline.
    and
    1 for the tag that purchased the content, which means you can play it on ANY console as long as you´re logged into LIVE with that tag

    So if you get a new console and wanna play the content with other tags or offline too then you need the license transfer.
    If you´re always logged into LIVE with the tag that purchased the DLC, there´s no need to do that.

    That's what I want to do. I've logged in to xbox.com etc. and it says its done. re-downloaded the game then signed out to try playing it without that tag and it just comes up with arcade game trial.

    Well if you have done the license transfer and the games still don´t work offline or
    with other tags you need to contact ms...
    I did the license transfer last year myself and didn´t have any probs...



    EDIT:
    just re-read your last post.
    You said you only redownloaded the game?
    That doesn´t solve the issue, you need to do the license transfer for all your downloaded content, step by step as described on xbox.com
    xbox.com/en-…rm/

    Hmm I could be doing something wrong could you talk me through it?

    I edited my last post
    Added a link to the site on xbox.com that takes you through it, step by step
    Hope that helps. It´s really easy

    Second, you must download the transferred licenses onto your new Xbox 360.

    I don't get that bit how do I do that?

    Oh so I have to download EVERYTHING in the purchase history for even one of them to work?

    Can I delete the stuff after?

    Via the xbox website.
    Click the link I posted, there´s a bit that says "Start the license transfer process now"

    or click this
    (make sure you´re signed in with the tag that bought all the stuff!)
    live.xbox.com/sig…fer

    On the link I posted 2 posts ago there´s also a video of major nelson taking you through the process, step by step.
    But like I said, it´s easy...Just click the link I posted last and it´ll take you through it.

    Edited my post
    I knew all that did it before
    But I think this is the problem I only downloaded Duke Nukem do I need to download all of the purchase history for even one of the stuff to work?

    Yes you need do to it with all of them if you want all of them to work.

    TanyaSpace;4837525

    Yes you need do to it with all of them if you want all of them to work.



    No I mean I just want Duke Nukem to work or a few of them do I download just those or all?
    Because I've downloaded Duke Nukem and it wouldn't work.

    If you only wanted one then that one would do.
    You must have messed the steps up somewhere somehow.
    Did you do it through the website where it tells you to turn the console on that you want the licenses transfered to within so and so many minutes
    and then you can redownload the stuff through your download history??

    You don't have to download everything thing again, you just download the license, use the link in i supplied on the first page, and just follow exactly what it says.

    That´s what I said.
    But it needs to be done for each item individually (the redownloading i mean) if he/she wants to use all of the stuff.
    If only 1 item is wanted then of course one will do.

    no i know, i'm not arguing with you, as you can see by the first page of posts, i did all this a few days ago. I'm simply agreeing, go here:
    xbox.com/en-…rm/
    and follow each step, it couldn't be simpler.

    Yes you need to redownload your stuff.
    I´ve done it last year!

    Oh I see LOL
    Yep, it´s really easy

    I don't understand.
    This is what comes up.

    oops I meant everything.

    Did you click finish and then redownload your stuff Met-Cast?
    Also, you can only do this once per year....

    Where do I download the license from on my xbox? :?
    Only done this once im sure

    I don't understand.This is what comes up.



    yes, it's meant to appear....you have to simply FOLLOW the instructions it gives you!

    Did you really do it step by step...and turn the 360 on you want the license for when it asked you to?

    You go to your account and then download history on your xbox, easiest way to redownload

    I know all of that I tried it all STEP BY STEP didn't work but I'm not sure if I pressed finish :oops: I'll try it again when i'm near my xbox, Does it notify me that the license has downloaded when I sign in? Another thing does it matter if I have the xbox on while I do it and not turn it off and restart after i've finished? Because I left it on the whole time and just tried it and it didn't work. But I did sign out then back in.

    Thanks for all this guys Rep for all

    No it doesn´t notify you.
    It tells you on the website if you do it correctly, to turn the console you want the licenses transfered to on at some point and connect to live with it. Did you do that? You have to have it off, then it asks you to turn it on....
    Also you need to redownload the stuff yourself, they don´t do it for you

    Oh so that's the bit I didn't do I didn't have it off :thumbsup:
    Will try that.
    Yeh I know about the redownloading etc. just didn't realize I had to turn it off usually the first thing I try but I was half asleep when I tried it :p.
    Thanks alot! will let you know how it goes :thumbsup:.

    Yeah follow it EXACTLY step by step. Don´t leave anything out or change the order lol It messes it up!

    Lol, ok so I get a second chance right because you said you can only do it once a year? So that means successfully once a year and on that account or on that xbox?

    No idea to be honest..
    Try it

    It´s once per live account per year

    TanyaSpace;4838919

    No idea to be honest..Try it ;)Once per account per year



    Oh that kinda sucks but atleast it's possible and it's easy to do. thanks will try it and let you know thanks :thumbsup:

    Good luck
