    Nope. You can't. Test it....
    Open a game, start matchmaking, find people, then put to HIGH, they should disappear..

    Close please Nubble

    If you post your info in the Official Boosting thread, there are bound to be some people you can find to play with late at night. There are quite a few people who post there, so if you add your info, they can contact you, you can contact them, etc.

    Give that a shot and see if you can't find some regulars to play with.

    I have tested 300000 times going in by myself. It just can't be done, unless there is a way I haven't tried yet...

    Haha don't just say it...
    Show it :wink:
    Press the thanks button on the post I helped you with.

    and Ya, I wish it could be done by yourself Nubble and Cole, kinda sucks that you can't.....

    But post TU3, I'm pretty sure you can bridge but the host quit... eh.....

    My account is online tomorrow... Hopefully, it doesn't extend the suspension for no reason again...:thumbdown:

    Yeah, for the TU3, I'm fairly sure bridging will still be fine. Its the use of the lag switches, firewall on high, etc that is going to get people the boot. If you bridge and don't lag switch you should be fine, but don't quote me on that as I could be wrong. We'll just have to get a very brave guinea pig to test bridging when the update comes out! :biggrin:

    ive come up with a theory...


    if.
    and i say if.

    you, the bridger.
    checked cain for the incoming ip of your anonymous friendly.
    and added it to trusted fast enough.
    in other words before you find a match.

    you will be able to bridge host.

    of course if you miraculously get the ip(s) this fast.
    you should hope that they dont cancel match making because then you would be ****ed.

    i think it would work but i havent been able to add the ip fast enough to test it.

    When bungie started banning people for standbying in halo 2, people never stopped. I highly doubt people will stop bridging for gears 2. Can't wait for TU3, because there will be more ranks :biggrin:.

    I used to do that in Wingman, and if I didn't have a full party, I would do it in Elim or even Players Choice.

    Wow, no you can't, until I see a legitimate video of you actually using ZAP, and I know that it is in fact, real, the answer is you can't bridge by yourself.
