Star Performer
Earn Elite Agent Rank in any Mission

In Order of getting the Star Performer Achievement, what do you need to do, where i finished a whole city with each picture under one Minute and gathering the "bonus hints".

Is there any trick in getting it?

I'm trying to get this achievement also. Did it under a minute each pic and still no achievement. But I did use hints. Are you using hints? Trying it now without hints to see if that makes a difference.

Did you find the bonus items? I dont have it yet so im just guessing.

I wonder if it's to do with how many attempts you have. The more incorrect guesses you make the lower your rank goes?

Got it :D

How I got it? Don't have a clue! But I got it! :woop:

What I did to get it:

Mission: San Francisco
Time Remaining: 31.16
Hints Remaining: 7
Score: 234,350

I misclicked once, I think Daz is onto something with the click thing, I tried not to misclick but did once by mistake :( I used to click a lot to find ones I did not know.

I found all bonus items (in this case, the Joker cards) and so time was added on. I started with 30 minutes and ended with even more time than that, so I think that is an issue with the achievement also - do it as fast as possible.

I really do recommend the first level (San Francisco) as it is so easy to memorise each and every item!

I'm sorry I can't tell you exactly what I did :( I really just don't know! :confused: Good luck to you all who are trying to achieve it :D

My friend Luse666 got the full 200 yesterday and this is what he had to say:

For elite agent what you have to do is play a level until you pretty much know where every item is (first missions easy). Then you need to get all the bonus cards as well as all the items as fast as possible without making a mistake...

Quickly clicking one after the other in succession is the key. You get more points if you click on the next item quickly. It starts at 250 then 500 and stays at 1000 each if you're fast enough. Also pick up as many bonus items as possible but not to the detriment of the combo or time remaining. Not sure what the score threshold is but I repeated San Francisco over and over until it unlocked for me at just over 22,000 points.

I've got it, too yesterday.

Collected all Bonuscards, time left in SF was 31:10 and +22.000 Points no wrong click. I think that is the Key to success

Well the misclicks do directly affect your time, so I'm thinking it must be related to time (having more remaining then you started with) and score being over a certain threshhold.

I finished with all 7 hints, 29:50 remaining and I believe 0 misclicks and did not get it last night. however I forgot to check with the score I achieved on that mission was.

Will try again when I get home today and see what I can figure out.

maybe you have to have 30+ minutes remaining in order to get the star performer since i had 31:00 minutes remaining but missing one bonus card didn't give me the achievement so i think you'll need all bonus cards + 30:00 or 31:00 minutes left

When you unlocked it did you have either puzzle bonus or expert bonus?

I just played SF with 31+ minutes, 200K+, 9/9 bonus cards. I misclicked once so im going to try again to see if thats the problem.

Did this for a friend, but i don't remember the points.

Here's what we did:

We started up San Francisco and i would click on the normal Items, while he only searched for Bonus Items. We averaged the single rounds at 20-25 seconds with at least 2 of 3 Bonus Items each.

Time: around 32 Minutes
Points: ??
Misclicks: 1 (my fault xD)
Cards: 8 out of 9 i think.

finally! it must be some bug, i've restarted console, repeated san francisco once again (no misclicks, all bonuses, time 31:30, no hints, score 223000+) and achievement was mine! 200/200 done :drunk

Yeah there is a glitch that when you buy while playing the trial, the time stays at 10 minutes :( I had that too, but luckily it fixes itself. At least we know you can get all but Elite on the trial time :D

I replayed San Francisco many times to finally get this. The trick is you have to have enough items available to really boost your score. So if the game loads San Francisco and gives you the items that have 2 or three that need to be found you are in luck. just grab the bonus point item and quickly pick out all the other items. I actually missed one bonus item and had 2 misclicks when the achievement popped for me, but i had enough extra items that i got the points i needed. When I say extra items, I mean the game asks you to find 2 or 3 umbrellas, 2 bears, etc. This is good if you know where the items are, because it gets you more points.

For whatever reason, Interpol keeps forgetting that I paid for it, and requires me to unlock the game, thus restricting me to the 10 minute time limit, thus preventing me from getting the Star Performer chevo.

Could the game at this point be bugged?

I just finished up this game yesterday with no issues so it's not bugged for everyone.

Might as well post my stats for Star Performer:

Level- SanFran
Points- 232,450
Time- 31:42
Number of hints used- 3
Bonus cards collected- 9, so all of them
Miss clicks- none

Took me 20+ times to get it. I agree with most others, there's no special trick you just need to memorize where the items are and be both accurate and quick.

If you haven't tried it already- clear your cache, delete the game, reinstall and see what happens.
