Getting Started

Installing XLink Kai on a Chromebook is a straight forward process with a few requirements:

  • A user account with developer mode rights
  • ~2 GB of HDD Space
  • An internet connection. A wired network is preferred for stable gameplay. Using a cell phone hotspot is extremely discouraged.
  • A Supported Network Setup. If playing Original Xbox or Xbox 360 games your PC/Laptop can NOT be fully wireless unless the console is wired directly to the PC/laptop!

This guide assumes you have already signed up for an XLink account and have completed the registration and consent process.
