We're excited to announce that we've fully migrated the Xbox Forums to their new home, here on the Microsoft Community forums!
As of today, going to forums.xbox.com will redirect you here to the Xbox area of the Community forums. We've moved all of your existing threads over so you can continue and start conversations with the new forums experience.
We sincerely appreciate the feedback you have provided over this transition and can't wait for you to check out the new Xbox Forums!
I have been playing HALO 3 for several days now and it's been working fine. Today, I setup a LIVE account. When I tried to start my game again, I was given the option to "Start" a game not "Continue" my game. Is all of my hard work over the last several
days gone?!?!? I am new to Xbox, and I'm afraid that I've screwed it up.
From the sounds of it you created a new account for Live instead of promoting your old one.
You promote offline accounts by signing in to it, pressing the guide button (the big silver one) and then choosing the Join Xbox Live option.
If your new account is automatically signing in you can access the old one by again pressing the guide button and pressing X to sign out. You'll now see the option to Sign In and how many profiles there are on your console. Select that option and you should
be able to access your old account again and promote it to Live access if you wish.
All saves are locked to the profile they were made by, so using your old account is the only way to access that progress.
Did this solve your problem?
Sorry this didn't help.
