This is for people who have encountered loading screen freezes while attempting to go through their game while getting every collectible (I made it through fine by doing this)

FOR STARTERS:
Make sure that when you go through each level the first time you get every collectible
http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=169820
The Video guide is super helpful for this

DO NOT REPLAY ANY LEVEL

1. Start the game and get everything there is to in Train Station

2. Once in Midtown ignore EVERY collectible

3. Continue onto Digsite making sure that you get everything on your first playthrough

4. Do this same method with Church, Farm, Hospital, and Cannery

5. Once these are complete move on to the side missions making sure to complete them fully the first time, these include:

Warehouse, Officer's House, SS Headquarters, Paranormal Base

Note: Outside of the Paranormal base there is a gold bar underneath the stairs where you exit, make sure to get it before jumping off the roof or you will have to replay the mission

6. Upon exiting the final side mission go and collect EVERYTHING in midtown starting in Midtown East and then moving to West

7. Move to Downtown ignoring all collectibles just like Midtown

8. Complete Castle making sure to get everything

9. Next complete the Radio Tower side quest

10. Before going to Airfield collect EVERYTHING in Downtown

11. Finally Complete Airfield and Zepplin while gathering everything

HUZZAH! you have beaten the freeze glitch

I hope so too, i'm pretty sure it will as long as you only try to get the collectible achievements during that playthrough

I'm going to delete all my previous saves just in case ... and get started... If anyone else is doubtful and wants to wait, I will have this confirmed by tomarrow :)

just a quick question b4 I start, What did you use for the Downtown collectables? I checked the threads but i missed it somewhere ... can you link me to it? well for midtown and downtown I used the strategy guide I'm not sure what is online for that sort of thing

That seems to be the case, yeah. The problem is for those of us that didn't collect everything the first time through. There's no beating the bug for us. We're either going to have to start over, or wait for an almost certain patch.

By the way, could you have drawn out your explanation any more? XD All that needs to be said is, "replay game, getting all collectibles along the way." Nonetheless, this should prove helpful for anyone who has yet to play the game, so thumbs up.

well I wanted to be thurough especially since if you get everything in midtown and downtown early it is liable to freeze, I just wanted to clarify what i did is all

Puppys
08-25-2009, 10:09 PM
It wasnt really just a re-statement... Cause you have to do everything in a certain order... And waiting on a patch isnt an option for those who rent it ... thats just what i think.

Really? I wasn't aware that collecting everything in the hub worlds made the game freeze. Nor did I realize that they had to be collected in a certain order. Nonetheless, once again, good job. Hopefully Raven will release a patch soon so no one has to deal with this issue.

08-25-2009, 10:26 PM
well thanks, I mean after reading all of the issues and getting through myself I came to this conclusion and it worked so yeah hopefully it works for everyone

Thanks for making this thread. That note about the gold bar outside Paranormal Base might just be a life-saver.

well, it didn't freeze and i got the achievement. So, the cause seems to be replaying a mission

I think you can replay missions, but maybe only a certain amount? I replayed a few levels just fine, but it just up and locked up when I went to do... well I wish I remembered what # it was.

you might be able to get away with replaying one mission(i believe the OP replayed train station for conservationist), but any more and the game will likely freeze. Remember, it tends to freeze at around 80%, so if you replay missions and think your safe because it hasn't froze yet, you won't freeze until 80.

Three posts into the 'freezing' thread, I could have told you replaying chapters was the problem. That being said, I'm pretty sure you don't have to do the levels in any specific order, just complete them as they come. I say this because I collected everything in midtown very early on in the game without a problem. Also, I didn't even complete the side missions until later in the game.

And waiting on a patch isnt an option for those who rent it

If you have the time to replay the game, that is. I know I don't. I'll have to be returning the game pretty soon, and I don't even have the time to replay on easy for the 12 hour achievement. Thankfully I got the collectibles on my first run through, but depending entirely on when Raven offers up a patch, waiting and hoping is the only option for some.

you might be able to get away with replaying one mission(i believe the OP replayed train station for conservationist), but any more and the game will likely freeze.

Actually, my brother told me he replayed most of the games missions before it started freezing on him. It seems to be different for everyone.

hmm i realy want to play this game but now i think i will wait for a patch and get batman A A on friday instead as batman also has a much better review its a shame realy cuz i realy like the wolfenstein games and i dont want to spoil it by having to worry about worming around the freeze probs

thanks for the tips thow as i might still use if a patch dose not come out cheers

Sourman145
08-26-2009, 12:40 PM
yeah, it doesn't seem to matter what order you do the missions in, as long as you don't replay

08-26-2009, 02:50 PM
Oops.. I already missed 2 gold on Church, and started replaying it. Guess I'll just see what happens; I'm only about 30% of the way through anyway. :drunk

there is a huge bug,i have done all first/secondary missions.i have picked up all collectables for midtown east,which went fine,then started on midtown west,im 3/4 way through the pickups and i have to get down to the sewers behind the house with the nazi mg nest.i can get down the sewers no problems,but there is a door there which i cannot open because it says i have to complete the cannery mission.i have done all the missions.and iv put in a good 10 hours picking this crap up,not impressed,looks like im not gonna finish it after all

Issun
08-26-2009, 05:25 PM
It sounds, Stawman, like you've encountered something entirely different than what we have. If you're talking about the door that leads to downtown, I think you first have to return to the Kreisau circle safe-house and speak to Caroline for the door to officially open. If you've done that and all of the missions as you said, the game may have glitched on you. However, if you are talking about the door leading to downtown, I'm pretty sure there's more than one way to get their.

im sure theres plenty of people who would have not worried about gold first time through, thinking, oh i can just replay, and then saw this and now know to get everything first time through

I'm one of the ones who didn't think about collectibles so is it worth me even trying to play through? It hasn't frozen yet but I don't want to start going back through levels and then have it freeze on me. Should I do a replay?

08-27-2009, 02:06 AM
if ur just playing the game to the end w/o replaying your fine. If u go back and replay a mission thats when ur screwed. It froze on me after i had replayed, train station, dig site, farm, church, so its annoying but i was planning to do a another playthourgh on easy for the three death achievement anyway so its fine.

Jordbrett
08-27-2009, 02:22 AM
So realistically for a collectible run just start over as it most likely will freeze after 2 or 3 replay levels?

XxHektikxX
08-27-2009, 02:55 AM
yup pretty much

ponypo2001
08-27-2009, 05:06 PM
Just another clarification really.I only replayed the first level once and I just finished without the bug thankfully.I'm praying it doesn't hit me on my Uber runthrough cause that will really make me cry.

That would have been great except I am at the Black Sun loading screen and it will not load the next level !! :mad:

Why in the hell would they not fix this shit before release just boggles my mind..... :uzi:

I'm at the Castle right now and I have gotten everything in every mission so far, but I accidentally picked up 2 golds and 2 intels in Midtown, and i have NOT replayed any missions. Does anybody know if the game will freeze on me later on???

GenericNPC, regardless of some of the snippet, unnecessary negative comments in regard to your help, I am sure there are several who truely appreciate your gesture. I have attempted 4 times to play through this game with the same issue, freezes going to Airfield. I am going to try your method. Hope it works!


UPDATE
Ok, it worked, like a charm. Thanks very much Generic!

YES! I got it! I beat the game on Uber, and got ALL the Gold, Intel, and Tomes. I followed the guide carefully, although i did forget to pick up the gold under the stairs right after you beat the Paranormal level. But what i did was after i beat the whole game, i replayed ONLY the Paranormal level, and picked up that LAST GOLD i needed, and got the achievement for that. Thanks a lot for this guide! it really helped!!!

Ok, if I just want to play the game all the way through on Uber and NOT collect the gold, intel and tomes, just get every other SP achievement, has anyone tested that the game will not freeze? I'm assuming it won't since I'm just playing the missions and not getting the collectibles, so I won't have to replay any level and my completion % will not go anywhere near 80%. And I'm sure a lot of you have completed the game without it freezing. :-)

I can do without the 100gs for now (Gold Digger, Librarian, Master Spy & Monitor Tan) until they release a patch (if they do), then go through on Easy to get everything. I just want to get everything else since it seems that getting collectibles and replaying missions are what locks the game up. Maybe I'll try the "Beat the Freeze" method when I finish the game on Uber.

Thats whats happened to me on the ps3 it loads the level but i cant change my gun look at the journal or go on to the boss fight without it freezing and when i restart it i cant load that level up and have to restart on the zeppelin level, i have not collected much gold or intel as im doing it on uber and will finish up the single player achievements on easy. i just hope they release a patch soon to fix this as i dont want to go back through on uber.

Hi,
I just started playing this game, and all that I wish to know is: 1) Is this glitch fixed already? because when the game started it asked me to patch it; 2) Can I finish the game at hard dif. and then get the collect. at urber? or should I start at urber right away?
