    DLC for both RS1 and RS 2014

    I'm on Xbox 360. Have both RS! and RS2014. Would like to purchase "Smoke on the Water" DLC but would like to play on both programs. How do I do this?
    Thanks!

    Because Smoke on the Water was released before RS 2014, it should be playable in both (Anything release before RS2014 was designed for RS2012 and will play in both, but anything after will only play in RS2014). When I first got RS2014, all RS2012 DLC I had purchased/downloaded were automatically in the new game. I don't think using DLC from RS2012 in RS2014 alters the DLC itself or makes it unplayable in RS2012.

    So does it matter which program I order it from? Order on RS1 - available and playable on RS2014 automatically. Order on RS2014 available and playable on RS1 automatically. ??

    I would suggest you order it for 2012, I did that for a few songs, and they were automatically available in 2012 and 2014. I would not try it the other way around.

    From what I understand, on X360, all pre-2014 songs are listed as DLC for RS2012 on xbox.com and the in console store, but they just will automatically be playable in RS2014. To be on the safe side and make sure all pre-2014 play in RS2012, don't buy them in RS2014 (use XBOX.com, or the in console store)

    You can buy RS1 DLC through RS14 and it will work on both games. I have done this and had no problems.

    I bought some original RS DLC in the 2014 game and it showed up in after I bought the original game, so yes it works.
