Resident Evil 6 Online

Download Article Download Article

I have a crazy idea, It may be a glitch in our microsoft account profiles. What lead me to this conclusion are the following:. Tried on external HD and internal HD, same crash occurs/game freezes and crashes to dashboard when you have xbox live selected in the network settings tab in the game itself.

Removed MS account and uninstalled RE6. Then cleared the system cache. After i re-downloaded RE6 and tried again. Same error occurred.

Steps

Factory Reset my console and reformatted my external HD.
Preparing to Play

  1. [factory reset is also supposed to reformat the internal HD].
    Then re-downloaded and tried again. Same error occurred. The Game woks Perfectly with Offline selected in the network settings tab in RE6. Ruling out HD problems. 5.Deleted both Cloud and Console save files and restarted the game. Intro played through without fault.
  2. It is not the console, it i do not think is on Capcoms end anymore.
    I think it has something to do with the actual MS account. Some error at some point in time occurred and made a glitch somewhere.
    Some error may have occurred after i had changed my gamer tag and attempted to play the game with multiplayer enabled [xbox live selected in the network settings tab in RE6].
  3. Because the game worked with multiplayer mode enabled before on my account on this console.
    Maby something somewhere on the accounts permissions to access RE6 in multiplayer mode or it could have resulted from a temp communication ban. some thing on my account itself is at fault im sure of it.
    Please and Thank You!

    Community Answer
    Try rebooting the game/computer, contacting the developers, or troubleshooting your internet connection.
  • Is online coop 2-player only, or does it have 4-player?
    Community Answer
    It is only for two players. Also, on PC the second player will only work if you attach an additional controller along with the keyboard. (A single keyboard will not allow you to play 2-player mode.)
