I'm trying to play Halo CEA Co-op mode with a friend. We can connect with no problems but the game lags massively.
First problem is I'm in Germany and my friend is in Australia. I realise the ping is a problem and wondering if it's simply not possible given the distance and AI being added to the game.
Things we have tried:
*using normal AV cable instead of HDMI in a hope to reduce some internet load. It made little difference.
*connecting with ethernet cable instead of WiFi, again made little difference.
It's no problem on pc to do this for example I can go Co-op with a friend in Sydney and play F1 2011 with 22 AI drivers on the track and the game runs pretty well, ping is high but the game is self works.
So my question, is the Xbox capable of this kind of connection or is it simple to much for it. Can others connect in a similar fashion given the distance?
Any help or tips appreciated
