Xbox One Console Thread

Switched on my Bone to a fresh black screen of death. Hard reset and now it's stuck at the green loading screen doing not a great deal.

Fuck guys. It's Halo day tomorrow

I had that a couple of updates ago. I just left it and eventually the console started up. I suspect it was either reconstructing the DB or reporting some debug stuff back to MS.

He can search for it easier as I'm posting from my phone. The answer is on Xbox.com

Google search "Xbox one offline diagnostic tool"

See, that's already a way friendlier answer than 'I posted the answer you're looking for a few unspecified pages back in a 1155-page thread but I'm not going to give the slightest hint at what that answer might be or give you any kind of search term' :D The results in Google seem to mention a green screen of death though, while Flub posted about a black screen of death. Don't know if it's the same problem and/or solution, but the first hit is this thread on Xbox.com with a link to the offline tool you mention.

Ah no - he said it was now stuck on the green screen of death. I had that a few days ago hence I already did the research and testing of the solution ;)

November 12th confirmed for new dash and backwards comp starting to rollout for everyone.

Xbox fans mark your calendars: @XboxP3 just revealed new Xbox One experience & back compat start launching Nov. 12 for all Xbox One owners

Gigantic and Fable can't be far behind as they both need the Windows 10 stuff for PC cross play.

Does anyone else have problems sharing their screenshots?

I had no idea how and online searches showed the option to share was hidden when viewing an image in the Upload app and press menu. Except for me, that option has not yet showed up & I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.

Are these xbox take a screenshot (double tap home >press Y) pictures or Forza 6 photo mode pictures ?

The former should post directly to your friend's list activity feed unless you've restricted sharing with social media. The latter you can view theough the Forza Hub or got to http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/log in and open your gallery.

Might be your privacy settings?

To clarify when you take a screenshot it'll post straight to the activity feed.

I took a quick look before work and it seemed like all my permissions for sharing or social are to allow unrestricted access. I went through the process again and still no luck, so it might not be that.

I Google searched for the issue and it's not widely reported but lots of people are mentioning that the Share option is not there and sometimes, randomly or after a period of time, the Share options then appears on the menu view.

Thanks very much for the link Boozy, I was able to extract the one picture I shared on Forza but the screenshots not affiliated or taken in Forza 6 are still not shareable. :(

yes.

How it works,

After signing in both profiles to each machine,you designate each others xbox as your own.So his is your xbox and vice versa. It's only an option on the dash not a physical thing. Once that's done each box will automatically download any content bought by either of you and make it available to both yourselves and anyone else who's profiles are signed in on each box.

Hence half price / free games depending on how you organise it.

In order to game share one of you will have to set the other as your home console which can be found in console settings.

It happened by pure accident with a mate of mine. He logged into his Live account on my console before owning one himself. When he finally bought one (Titanfall bundle) I suddenly had a copy of Titanfall begin downloading. It had automatically assumed that my console was his home console as this was the first console his Live account was used on.

My games and apps > apps > settings > Privacy & Online safety > Custom > See your game clips & screenshots > Share your content with social networks

Check the last two , options are Everybody, friends or block, there's a chance you set the social networking one to block in the initial setup.

Hope that sorts it out.

Yeah, pretty much. I ordered it before there was a price in place, and when they finally added one it was £79.99. Of course, once it hit the news they actually adjusted my price UPWARDS to £129.99, rather than cancelling the order outright and then didn't inform me of the change.

I got in touch with them and explained that by adjusting the price of the order upwards they were undermining their own pre-order price guarantee. After all, if they did it once there's nothing stopping them from adjusting the price of another pre-order without warning, and without notification.

They adjusted the price back after that. Now I order all my games from Simply anyway.
