I have a few questions that I couldn't find a quick answer for,

1. Is anyone finding it difficult to play using Xbox 360? I have a chat pad and it's hard to type
2. Is it possible to use a large USB keyboard on the Xbox 360? It would make chatting easier
3. Is there a thread for 360- friendly macro tutorials?
4. What is the proper way to ask for a teleport? I am trying to use auto translate but I don't quite understand how that works.

Thanks for reading!

I've heard mixed things about the chat pad. Some folks love it, some hate it.

Here is a tutorial on using a keyboard with Xbox 360 (YouTube):



That video isn't too great, but it also links to this product, which is a PS/2 mouse/keyboard adapter for Xbox 360.

As for a teleport, the best way to do it is like thus:

{Teleport-Holla} {Can I have it?} {You can have this} 5K

Make the dollar amount high enough and people will volunteer to change jobs to grab it. But 5,000 gil is generally enough. Also, the only place you're going to have any luck with that is Port Jeuno. Anywhere else, people will be for a reason, and they won't be willing to stop what they're doing and teleport you since they probably haven't set their home point locally and will have to get back to town.

I'd work on building up your outpost warps as soon as you can, since that tends to be a more reliable method of getting around the world than WHM teleports.

1. I believe it takes some getting used to. Some people prefer running around with a stick, others like a keyboard more. Seems a bit troublesome to me to put your controller down everytime you want to type something. I too had a chatpad, but the thing was notorious for heating up to unhandable temperatures after only half an hour of playing. Not sure if it was merely shortcircuiting or that it's simply a horrid design flaw.

2. Yes, you can plug in any USB keyboard to your 360 by using either of the two USB entrances. Much much more preferable to me, but to each his own.

3. Any non-windower macro for PC or PS2 would work just as well on a 360. There's no special macro's. As long as you're not trying to access scripts outside of XI in your macro's, anything goes on the 360 really.

4. "{Teleport-Dem} {Can i have it?} {Reward:} <x amount> gil" seems to be the most common. If people arent picking you up, it's either because they can't be bothered teleporting someone for the amount you offered, or because there are no WHM currently teleporting people.

Both were very helpful, thanks! I only wish I didn't spend so much on this damned chatpad.
Time to visit eBay!
