    For some reason the 100% a Co-Op song on GHIII finally unlocked for me today, and something really freaky happened.

    I was going for the 15 consecutive songs won on joined matches while trying to get the 15 consecutive songs won with a standard controller.

    The 15 consecutive songs won on joined matches unlocked after 13, and then after 15 the consecutive ones with a standard controller did.


    I would say that GHIII has some funked achievement handling, and just persevere if you don't get an unlock.


    I can't see how anyone can say this is off OT.

    Probably because the last post was about lawnmowers ;) :D

    And i didn't know this achievement was glitchable, all the people i played online were incredibly good and always chose TTFATF, so i gave up on this and the other online ones.

    Just find a buddy and do Best of 7 battles. 1 person chooses Expert and just strum to fail, it takes about 3 seconds. You get 4 songs a match.

    Just repeat 4 times to get 16 songs and then swap hosts. It took about 10mins each to get the 15.

    for you it took 30 seconds to fail for me less than two beats of the song

    it was good fun playing GH3 with you matt and getting some achievements out of it

    you and your funky achievements, mine were fine like always (touch wood)

    (sorry if this gets it shut-down for not talking about achievements) but when i played online before when matt was offline, all the people i played would pick TTFAF and it was really annoying as they would not be able to do any other song but i couldnt do TTFAF on medium like they could as it was all they played

    just for the record i will NOT be counting posts throughout this thread (wouldnt want it to be viewed upon badly)

    just need to get the regulars in here now(in now specific order): paul x 2, steve, codey, pixel, jpg, haly and all thosewhos names i cant remember and new people

    the term is spending some money i think there paul

    you must have read it wrong you and the other paul are both in ther - first as a matter of fact (hough order means nothing)

    lol, your achievement for the songs are you enjoying it this time or just getting it done out of annoyance?

    when are you gonna start the other 180 games you havent played? as there is a lot of gamerscore you have there!

    Remember this thread isn't for arranging boosting buddies.

    Although in my opinion it is for Gamerscore Addicts to boost gamerscore and boosting buddies is a perfect way to do that.


    But that is off topic.


    Does anybody know how to kill 15 people while on the back of the tank on Ring of Steel in CoD: WaW because I have no idea how to get 15 people.

    Plus is there a tip for getting 45 zeros, I only managed 42 and I practically got everyone possible.

    ooh matt watch heading off topic there!

    im looking up about that acheivement as have often wondered about it myself or what it is and how you do it

    i have tried the sum of all zeros and didnt really do too well, its luck as to what you hit

    will post back with my findings

    maybe a new thread should be made to arrange boosting as it will get this thread closed - but then again it will clog up the forums ... oh decisions what shall we do ... ?

    Ring of Steel:

    On 'Ring of Steel', after coming out of the Asylum you should see two tanks. Travel to the one on the far-right and mount the turret by pressing X. At this point, spam your weapons at German soldiers, and this should unlock shortly before the screen goes dark to signify the end.

    The Sum Of All Zeros:
    Because the guns on your planes aren't very accurate, this makes killing enemy planes a lot harder. Japanese aircraft are called 'Zeros' and most of them are called out to you by your flight operator. Near the start of the Zero raid, there will be quite a lot of aircraft. You should be able to rack off around 10 kills here. During the mission, concentrate on the aircraft and not on survivors. Also try to take out the PT boats as quickly as possible when there are no Zeros around. With luck, you should be able to get this by the end of the mission.

    OK guys I want to clarify here. There is a difference between saying you want to meet up online and then posting about the fact you're just about to make some toast so you won't be on for 10 minutes. You can do the former, but the latter is very boring to read and alienates other members who may not be involved in the banter. It is my perception this is what happened in the last thread.

    There is no problem with advertising you want to meet other members online, but any fine details about meeting arrangements, how the football is going or what's on TV should (wherever possible) be kept to Xbox Live messaging, MSN or whatever else you need to do. If it happens to involve alot of other members and so the forum helps in communicating this way, then fine, but for just the 2 of you, keep it to IM.

    I hope that clears it up, and I don't appreciate the sly digs all the time, I do have to read them.

    The zeros one seemed totally random, I found just firing randomly racked up a bunch of kills, I definately didn't directly hit 42 of them.

    I still can't see how you can get 15people on ring of steel, the Germans seem invincible.


    But I had the same issue with stopping the private from being burned, the japanese guy that came out was bullet-proof, and even stabbing him 3 times didn't work. I still have no idea how I managed to get that achievement.

    The ring of steel achievement is pretty easy, the mounted machine gun takes them out in a few shots and considering you have the opportunity to shoot over 100 germans, should come without any trouble. Just make sure you don't blow up the cars and take out the germans that way, it doesn't count towards the kills.

    Isnt it a tad harsh though you closed the thread saying we only posted in it when there were many people that had posted in it and had a lot of great fun in there including new members.
    I am on AVF a lot and often post does that mean i should cut down on my posts as the opic has to be discussed by 3+ people to be valuable?

    The forum does help for meeting up, it is related as its todo with achievements which is the reason in the threads - people with similar interests (achievements) talkingabout them in general, getting them, helping each other get them and arranging getting them - concerning the details of meeting up there were many PMs exchanged and part of making it public is people can join in if they want, know what we are doing and how we are doing it and do it themselves with us or others they find through here.

    The "digs" - arent just keeping your job easier and the thread open as it clogs up the forums with many closed threads as well as being difficult to get all the people from one thread to the new thread and keeping the conversation

    Just my opinon, SA6

    I thought I would clarify the achievements as they can get confusing.

    Host Ranked Matches and win 15 consecutive songs.


    • This means that the person who wants the achievements sets up a 7song battle.

    • The person wanting the achievement chooses easy. The other chooses Expert.

    • The person doing expert just strums and fails. You can do 4 songs per match.

    • When the match ends host another, in total you need to host 4 matches.

    Join Ranked matches and win 15 consecutive songs.

    • This means that the person who doesn't want the achievements sets up a 7song battle.

    • The person wanting the achievement chooses easy. The other chooses Expert.

    • The person doing expert just strums and fails. You can do 4 songs per match.

    • When the match ends the person not wanting the achievement host another, in total you need to host 4 matches.

    Win 15 consecutive songs with a standard controller.

    • When doing one of the above achievements instead of using the guitar use a standard 360 controller.

    If you do all the above you get 25g.

    for the zeros i just sit here spraying and praying hoping i can get enough for each bit to gt the total i need for the achievement

    its odd how blowing up the cars doesnt work but hey ho i can aim at the people if need be as 15 isnt many

    i will try your method with the x360a method as well and report back when i have had the time to do it

    any ideas for the sum of all zeros one of how best to do it?

    i agee with that and assuming your luck is not like matt's or paul's then you should unlock the achievements

    it wont take that long either (dependant on your button bashin skills to fail the song for the other person)

    the achievements arent clear so matt's post is useful

    I haven't got the zeros, got 42 out of 45, but I found that if a group was flying towards you just randomly spay into the group, it seems that works, I was just a few short. You definately need to take out the PT boats, plus do it on Easy as you can then ignore the survivors.

    why do you have a game but not wish to play it?

    theres plenty of achievements in there that you could get just by playing through SP

    Matt, just to let you know if you improve your star rating on a song in career it does give you more money, i've just unlocked DMC and obviously quit back to dash to save the cash.

    I've enough cash to do this achievement if you can buy the other
    49. Back in the Saddle
    You rocked out as Tom Hamilton and Brad Whitford in a Co-op match.

    I'm on my way, about 3k short at the moment of buying a character.

    My issue is that I 5* most of the songs on Medium and all on Easy, so I can't improve my rating. I think I might deliberately only get 3* on my second band, then 4* then 5*, that should help boost my bank balance.

    If you tell me which character you got I'll get the other one, or you can wait for me to get the 3k I need, the issue is I can only get it on Hard.

    I'll wait for you to get up to 15k, shouldnt take you too long.

    Should be a fairly easy achievement, then theres the opposite to what we did yesterday. :boring:

    Score Hero - Home should help you out with knowing what rating you are going to get matt

    i might have to try the same but will probs find it hard to do ba don easy, though its very hard to fail so might be ok

    will be worth getting the money to buy the stuff for the achievements though

    I'm surprised how much i'm enjoying if i'm honest.

    I'm getting better, not bad considering i've only been playing it this past week or so.

    Just a pity there's no other big Aerosmith songs, even as dlc
