    Man, this is messed up.

    I got the offer for the update, but no e-mail so I’m assuming I got accepted into the invite programme, since I filled out the survey and all.

    I had once again, like previous dashboard updates, got disconnected and now won’t let me download the update, and I have a working Internet connection.

    It should just easily DL the update to my system and not disconnect me like this for no reason. Or they should have just ManageSoft-ed the update and send it in silently through a central server letting people know about it and then announcing when it was complete.

    Can this issue be fixed please? <_ <.

    This update was great! It worked perfectly, I received the email and then downloaded the update. It works just fine.

    I want to ask you something, is there any webpage, forum, poll, post or something that we the users can post or tell what we want for the next dashboard update? I’m telling you this because I saw this great changes and everything but it could be great if we can tell you what we want, for example, I will love some friend search engine based on my games rating or based on my achievement history to find people around the world who has the same preferences for games that me or who plays the same games that me. That could be a great feature that right now we can’t do it. If you think about security it could be a check box on your settings that enable or disable to be on that search engine.

    Anyway, like this we have great ideas to share and maybe some of them you can open a ticket or task to develop it. Thanks for all your hard work!!

    Regards
    Diego

    Hey Major,

    New to the preview and love what has been done lately regarding the dashboard very speedy and really coming together now…as for the avatar marketplace of course its a nice idea but lets face it a good little cashcow it’s fun and has been better implemented.

    now, what i want to see coming is a virtual world that really makes use of the avatars not just for games that are still in development but for people’s avatar to be able to hang out, chat, arrange games, send friend requests just like a xbox live version of second life anyway you get the idea

    i have a few suggestions and what i think would be good improvements, have a game reminder that tells you when you are due to meets up with your friends in a party or have setting to automatically adds you to a partylist at a certain time and date

    In friends list have categorise friendslist by things such as country or even more useful a facebook style search to find friends on xbox live via gamertag or country along those lines….sounds possible

    btw add a ms points balance on same line with gamerscore and maybe have a notification that tells player that by getting a certain achievement they are awarded example gamerscore/achievement and avatar clothing item

    Anyway hope this was interesting reading on my first post.

    Thanks for reading

    The thinking behind the achievement notifier is that is encourages you to play on its natural progression away from the gamerscore as we all know things don’t stay the same forever and its only on improvement that the experience will really change

    Amyway i have written enough great to be apart of it.

    Anyone know if there’s going to be a fourth wave? Getting mixed signals. There was a sign up link in this post but on one of Major’s latest tweets he said stuff that sounded like the third was the last. Any idea anyone?

    Just noticed now games can get scored why not allow reviews on a games along with the score system

    I doubt there’s going to be another wave as i remember reading somewhere that this update we are all currently playing with is will be final and out on the 11th so leaves very little time to be introducing any new wave features even if there’s loads of testers in different regions just not enough time in my view.

    Thanks, I came today to ask for that link as I looked for the ‘NXE Preview’ report that issue, but my friend are having that issue with ‘Could not Join Party’ – only with me. Although it took us like 7 minutes to lull the issue. My friend has his settings (not preferences) set to Always Offline (so no one could see him and interrupt his gaming). He finally turned it off and he was okay.

    @Lord Of Blah
    Stop talking about it, I know you can’t control it (the remote controlled warthog), but it looks so cool! I feel like the biggest hypocrite – some of the new stuff is awesome! A bit pricey, but ‘bling-bling’ ain’t cheap for a reason.:)

    Is there any way to improve the loading of the game library? Clearing the cache didn’t work and this update really hasn’t improved it all that much!

    Now when you read the diclaimer it says you can not put your updated hard drive on another xbox, because if you do you wont be able to connect to xbox live until the update goes public…

    Now for some odd reason i can not connect to xbox live could this be the reason….
