BBHL Update (Not Good)


Hey all, I have to break the news that I cannot in fact run the BBHL for XBOX360. I bit off more than I could chew to put it neatly. My schedule here at college is too unpredictable and I'm actually starting to have XBOX troubles connection wise. Sorry to set it all up and then have it go this way, but I had to let you guys know so I wouldn't lead you on any further. The thread where I set it all up is linked in the title, if someone wanted to take the reigns (copy/paste and start a new thread is what I mean). Thanks for your continued support of Blueshirt Banter.
