plus probably shipping and having to wait 5 days just to use my kinect... really. i never really used my kinect cause i had it in a room that was way too small, so i ended up trading in my Kinect Adventures to gamestop, not even realizing there was a such thing as a "calibration card". i got a kinect zoom that i waited 4 days for from amazon and wanted to finally try out my kinect, and now i find out i need a card, which was most likely in the game i traded in. anyone know of any other way to calibrate the kinect?

Couldn't you just print out a version of the card? It's just a weird face, and all the kinect cares about are the eyes.

problem is i don't have a printer. i'll send that over to staples and get it printed out for me. hopefully it works.

Or go to Gamestop and get one.

I've never even used one. What does it do?

You know what angers me most kinect games, don't come with one, only Kinect Joy Ride, and the games that come with the kinect bundle. Every game should come with one because if you happen to lose one, you'll have 3 or 4 backup cards.

I went to GameStop to try to get one. they don't sell them separately but I'm pretty cool with the guy who works there. he let me look through the kinect adventures display cases and take one that I found. looks like I got lucky.

You can usually find Kinect Adventures at gamestop for $1. I found one in there and asked if I could have it (my bastard dog ate mine....fell off my desk when I was away and it was in shreds when I got home ;_; ) and he said "Sure, take it!"

haha

Worst case scenario, you have to pay $1 to get it.

What is this used for? I set up my Kinect a week or so ago on my new Xbox and I didn't need any card
