Some basic questions from a begginer. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I enjoy using the Kinect device as a gamer and it is truly amazing. When I heard about this SDK I got very excited. I just started to learn C++ and I'm not very pro at it yet. However, I want to play around with this as a learning experience. Naturally, I had some questions about how to set everything up.

    1. How do I connect the Kinect to my computer?

    2. If I set this up with my PC, will I still be able to use it with my Xbox 360 Slim? Also, will there be any firmware, performance, heat issues when using it on either my PC or 360?

    Thank You for your time and help. I have yet to download the package, but I wanted to get some questions cleared up before jumping in.

  • There's a readme included with the SDK for connecting. There's nothing that prevents plug-n-play between your pc and your XBox.
