    Just had updates for some BC games - Trials, Burnout Revenge & Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
    Wonder if the BC team are back working on the XB1 now or some emulation updates for the XBSX launch or better yet some new BC titles...

    Is there a simple way to download Games With Gold remotely? I used to use the app on PC or on my phone, but the phone app just says "play on Xbox One" and the PC app seems to be entirely focused on Xbox gaming on PC. Am I being dense?

    It's this sort of thing that makes me think they're trying to reduce the prominence of Gold. I don't mind not getting free games if I'm not paying for the service ;-)

    Can you not just go on the website on your phone, go to the games with gold section, then download to your hearts content?

    @Britesparc Looks like it was an issue at MS, now resolved:

    I dunno, I kinda liked the old Duke pad. Of course I have big manly hands with an iron grip yet sensitive control. If you had puny little child paws with short digits and no lasting strength then yes I could understand why you find a Duke pad challenging.

    Wondering if anyone can offer a bit of advice?

    Got a One X in the man cave and our 9 year old has a One S in her room, which she's had for about two or three months. She doesn't play that much but got the idea to have a go on Fortnight tonight.

    It said she needed a Live account (think the console may have come with a trial which has just run out, I forget). I went and grabbed a 14 day trial from one of my boxes. It wouldn't redeem and said she was too young.

    Her account is a child account and appears in my family settings. The family restrictions themselves are custom.

    I briefly tried changing her online privacy settings to allow 13+ content assuming this might be the issue but no.

    I tried signing in on her S with my parent account and it just kept freezing, maybe an internet issue so will try that again tomorrow.

    I've also tried to research if she can actually just piggyback on my live (which is with Gamepass) but the answers I found were convoluted and badly written, to say the least!

    Pretty sure it'll be in the settings somewhere, that doesn't help much does it! Been there got the T-shirt with my lad, Xbox family member settings seem overly complicated but do seem to allow pretty specific account management once they're refined.

    Are you trying to add Live to her account? Because I'm pretty sure it needs to be on your account.

    @freddymercurystwin cheers. Yes I have been trying to add live to hers. My profile isn't on her xbox, I tried adding it and it just kept freezing last night, but possibly a broadband error there.

    I have Gamepass Ultimate which obvs includes the live. If there's a way she can use that as a sub user that would be ideal but I'm guessing not because dollars.

    Add your account to your daughters console and set it as your ‘home’ console. Then you can sign in with her account by default on this machine, but your account will still be available. You can then sign into your console with your account. This way anything tied to your account (games, game pass, gold etc) is available to your daughters account. Doing this I would say it would be a good idea to make sure you have enabled the enter password for purchases/downloads option on your account.

    @46matt thanks. I had seen some variants of this advice but it seemed to suggest that for example if she booted up live, I'd be kicked off my session two doors down, or vice versa.

    @46matt your advice has sorted it. The poor little thing's in for a covid test right now so this will be a little bit of cheer for her when she's back. Very genuine thanks. And to you Shadow Gangs villain.

    UPDATE. She's come back somewhat upset but was over the moon about this, so yeah, thanks again!

    Ahh yea the home console setting, we had trouble with that between the two consoles too now i think about it, I think you can only swap the home console a limited number of times now.

    I can't seem to find the xbox one x thread but I did the thermal paste replacement after some serious overheating issues. Wow, what a difference it makes.

    The console is back to inaudible fan noise during a lot of low impact games and barely audible for enhanced 4k titles. Can't believe how shoddily they seem to have applied the thermal paste at manufacture.

    Can anyone help with as issue with Worms WMD ?

    When I bought the digital version at launch it installed with The All Stars Pack DLC
    I have gone to reinstall it & the DLC pack is not showing as available to install, just the base game and the DLC is not on the marketplace anymore

    It's been so long since I last played it that I cant tell if the content is there and has now been incorporated into the base game or if the DLC is missing

    Can anyone shed any light on this?
    Should i have the DLC or not

    Not the biggest news story, but the XB1 version of Ticket to Ride updated for me & it now has local & online multiplayer - this was one of the key issues from launch that it could only be played solo; pretty sure the online will be DOA but at least local play is now an option

    Didn't Sker come out just three months ago? Weird. Guess I'll give it a go, although I'm thinking of maybe waiting for the S. Not sure.

    Sphinx is okay too, but only half of the game is really good, while the other half is a weak Zelda clone. Too bad.

    There's a new Hall of Fame contest on the Xbox website. People competing for achievement scores and stuff. Of course I'll never win, but you do get some reward points for entering and even for unlocking achievements, so you might as well register.

    Seems like it will count all achievements unlocked between tomorrow and October 19th. Very good, considering Doom Eternal is released tomorrow.

    Can anyone clarify a Game Pass Ultimate question?

    With EA Play being added later this month to Game Pass Ultimate, does this mean that discounts on EA games are cross platform ie I'd like to buy Star Wars Squadrons on PS4 as it is VR compatible - will I be able to buy it for the reduced EA Play price on PSN as I will have an EA Play subscription?

    The wording suggests that EA play games are being added, not sure it is adding EA play itself.

    You are actually getting EA Play itself. Which is why, if you are already subscribed, they are converting your remaining time into GP Ultimate.

    But EA Play still requires a separate subscription for each platform, so you are not getting the PS4 discounts anyway.

    I c have just realised that the Creators Collection is not showing on the new storefront - is it just me?

    Most of the stuff is pretty poor but I have picked up a few gems eg Little Ball that Could, Hidden in Plain Sight
