Black College Football Xperience: The Doug Williams Edition - Achievement Guide
Xbox360Achievements.org - Every Point Counts
There are 27 achievements with a total of 1000 points.


Understand, this guide is 100% a W.I.P.
More will be added soon.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPyVUDs=.jpgThe MVP (50 points)
Completed your first pass

Go into Play Now, 5 minute quarters. Once your offense is on the field press A, this hikes the ball. Then throw to a receiver, having him catch the ball. Achievement unlocked, seriously.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+w2e5w==.jpgSweetness... (50 points)
Rush for 5 touchdowns with a single player in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode game

Get the ball to the goal line of your opponent. Then, instead of throwing a touchdown, run it in with the running back. Do this 5 times for the achievement.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+pJ6kw==.jpgAthlete of the Year (50 points)
Catch 4 TDs 1 player (Max. 5 min. quarters)

Do the same method you did for Sweetness… except this time pass the ball to the same guy 4 times.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+LNzJg==.jpgThe Satellite Express (50 points)
Catch 24 passes with a single player (Max. 5 min. quarters, Single Player Mode)

Just pass to the same person the whole game, most likely you will be getting Athlete of the Year also. Some have reported this can only be with one controller. I will confirm the right answer ASAP.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+3KCAA==.jpgLegendary O-Line (50 points)
Allow no sacks in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode game (Min. 5 min. quarters)

A sack is when the QB is tackled behind the line of scrimmage. So when you see the defense coming at you either pass the line of scrimmage or get rid of the ball. Do this for a game and the achievement is yours.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/-tBp+Q==.jpgInterception Master (50 points)
Intercept 3 passes with one player (Max. 5 min. quarters)

Interceptions are cake in this game. For more information on interceptions check out 'Pick 6'

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPzqTNw=.jpgSack Attack (50 points)
Sack the opposing quarterback 5 times in one game with one player (Max. 5 min. quarters)

YouTube - BCFX - Sack

As you can see from the video, sacks are very very easy also. Their line wont block you if you move to the left or right. Then blitz in. Press X when near the QB and your guy will dive at the QB.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/-YhhEA==.jpgAir it Out! (35 points)
Throw for 400 or more yards with a single player (Max. 5 min. quarters)

Throw the whole entire game. Just keep throwing the ball, work on other passing achievements with this one.

Easiest setup: Defense is in Field Goal Block. You go with a long pass play. Lob it up and run.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/-6lopQ==.jpg40 Completions (40 points)
Complete 40 or more passes with a single player (Max. 5 min. quarters)

Keep working on passing the whole game, will come easily.

This can be done with two controllers.

Complete a touchdown pass of 80 yards or more in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game

YouTube - BCFX - 80 Yard TD Pass

This can be done with two controllers and follow the method for 400 passing yards.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/-kmQNg==.jpgDual Threat Tailback (40 points)
Gain 150 Yards Rushing and 150 Yards Receiving with a single player

Rush the whole first half with the running back, then receive with him the second half.

This can be done with two controllers.

Just take off running with your QB until you get 100 yards. Then pass to finish the game.

Throw for 3 TD Passes and Run for 3 TDs with a Single Player(Max. 5 min. quarters)

Should get this along with Dual Threat QB 1 if you are gaining yards, you will score.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+cpyeg==.jpgGrind it Out (40 points)
Run the Ball 40 times with a single player (Max. 5 Min. quarters)

Hand off to a running back, or run with your QB the whole game.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+u1mdA==.jpgOff to the Races! (30 points)
Run for a touchdown of 80 yards or more in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game

I got this on a interception return for a touchdown. So any run of 80+ yards will count towards this achievement.

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UP60WY4=.jpgPick 6! (30 points)
Return an interception for a touchdown in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game

Interceptions are cake in this game. Play on Freshman and just rush the opposing QB. I mean, cake. You will average 4-5 a game easy by just playing.

YouTube - BCFX - Pick Six

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UP0KtE8=.jpgStingy Secondary (35 points)
Allow no receiving touchdowns (Min. 5 min. quarters)

This achievment can be done with two controllers. Since you have two controllers allow the second controller to not score any touchdowns. Not only will you get the shutout but also this one.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/-RGY3w==.jpgScoop 'N Score! (30 points)
Return a fumble for a touchdown in a Play Now, Classics Mode, or Championship Mode Game

YouTube - BCFX - Fumble Recovery for TD

Fumbles are very easy to come by in this game. I am not sure what defense is the best but any kind of blitz would be nice. I used FAMU and just blitzed in. Hit the QB (they fumble quite easily) and ran it back. This can be done with two controllers to make it even easier.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPuPS7g=.jpgSafety (20 points)
Record a safety in a Play Now, Classics Mode, or Championship Mode Game

Two ways, play legit and back them to their own endzone. OR! Or, you can get the ball yourself. Get to the one yard line and turn the ball over. Now your opponent has the ball backed up to their own endzone and you can easily score a safety.

YouTube - BCFX - Safety

This can be done with two controllers.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPpvsys=.jpgZilch! (35 points)
Shut out your opponent in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game (Min. 5 min. quarters)

Follow 'Stingy Secondary' for information.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/-zCRag==.jpgButter Fingers! (30 points)
Recover 3 opp. fumbles in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game (Max. 5 min. quarters)

Again, the fumbles are very very easy in this game. Hitting the Quarterback seems to cause the most fumbles.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UP-NWNI=.jpgPower AND Accuracy! (25 points)
Make a 50 yard field goal in a Play Now, Classics Mode, or Championship Mode Game

YouTube - BCFX - 50 Yard Field Goal

Setup at the 34 yard line and kick it straight down the middle. Do not touch the sticks. Everytime I did it always fell short. When I didnt touch the sticks it went in perfectly.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPwMqfQ=.jpgSpecial Teams Specialist 1 (25 points)
Return a kickoff for a touchdown in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game

The defenders run right past you, making you only have to beat one or two guys. Just juke left or right and take off running towards the sideline. To juke move the RS left or right.

YouTube - BCFX - Kick Return for a TD

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UP4toEE=.jpgSpecial Teams Specialist 2 (25 points)
Return a punt for a touchdown in a Play Now, Classics Mode or Championship Mode Game

The defenders run right past you, making you only have to beat one or two guys. Just juke left or right and take off running towards the sideline. To juke move the RS left or right.

YouTube - BCFX - Return Punt for TD

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPmuQg0=.jpgBCFx Championship (50 points)
Win the BCF Championship!

Just like ‘Win the Super Bowl’ from Madden or ‘Win the BCS’ in NCAA. This is a championship for playing through season mode. Win every game to get to the championship then play and win the championship.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UP3sUWc=.jpgMarching Band Master! (25 points)
Score a perfect score in the half-time mini-game on Master difficulty

By far one of the hardest achievements ever, and the hardest in this game for sure. You have to hit every note, and these are ridiculous. According to ---, --- college is the easiest to use.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/UPhOup4=.jpgDrum Line Master! (25 points)
Get a 50 note streak in the Drum Line Challenge Mini Game

I would call this number 2 on the easy scale. You can play on Easy. All that falls are A, X, B, Y really really slow. Watch the video below on how to do this achievement:

For the Interception Master, I used two controllers. For the offense (second controller) I picked the play Ace- Spread. The :ybut: receiver always stopped at about the first down line and the defensive player I had covering him always stood between the receiver and the QB. I threw to him and it got picked off every time.

The punt return for a touchdown is very easy. Whenever the opposing team punts the ball and your receiver lines up for the catch, the defensive players who are running down the field always run past you and stop. This allows you to just run past them. Just avoid the few remaining defensive players and get the touchdown.

For Safety!, just play with two controllers. Kick the ball off with your team to your second controller, catch the ball and then run into the endzone and press :xbut: to dive and get a safety. If you catch the ball in the endzone, run out and then back in for it to count as a safety, not a touchback.

For Zilch! and Stingey Secondary, play with two controllers and don't score with your second controller.

For Off to the Races!, play with two controllers, and get the ball within your 20 yard line. For the second controller, pick a Field Goal block and with your controller pick an outside run play. Run to the sideline, past all the defenders, and then cut up field for the touchdown.

For Dialing Long Distance, use the same set up as Off to the Races! except pick a pass play. Lob a pass to any receiver, catch it, and run for the touchdown.

That's it for now but I'll add more later.

If you didn't already know, just go to the bottom of the schedule and press play game. It'll sim all the games up until the last one. If you have a good enough ranking at the end of the season, you'll make the playoffs. Then just play the playoff game and then the championship game. Achievement unlocked!

They had to put one hard achievement on a easy list. The stupid "Marching Band Master" achievement is going to keep me from 1k'ing this game. I've tried with a controller and with my drum kit and it's just too difficult to get a perfect score on Master difficulty.

Awesome band game game and presentation. But the football portion sucks. EA could learn a few things from them from the band halftime show. But tother then that. No. It's not good at all.

So far the easiest halftime show that I have found is Virginia States. It is pretty long, but I've been able to get 136% on it a few times with a 350 note streak. There is only one part near the end that is giving me any trouble at all anymore. Another day and I think I'll have it done.

Can you use two controllers for all these achievements?

And for the Championship achievement, can you do what you do in NCAA and Madden by saving after every game you win and them sim each game, and if you don't win, just reload, guaranteeing a shot at the Championship?

You can't really sim each game because there is no sim option. The best thing you can do (what I did at least) is pick a team, pick the last game of the season and go to play it. Once you can pause the game, quit and look at the standings. If you are in first or you have a chance at winning your division, play the game. If not, then just start again. Don't bother playing the game unless you can win the division because you are only wasting time.

Don't believe what dethklok says. Six is not all.

You can get most with two controllers. You can't get the championship or the two band ones. But any actual in game football-based achievements you can get.

Great. I meant to say the in-game achievements. I didn't think you could use two for the marching band or Championship ones. Thanks for clearing that up!

Just to further clarify, you CANNOT get any of the achvs listed as "Single Player MODE" with two controllers. For example, I repeated the same pass, over and over, and got my 40 passes thrown, by a single player, achv, but did not get the 24 rec achv, even though I had over 30. You can get a lot of them, but unfortunately you do have to play the awesome "season" mode for a few. Oh, and you can do the Band and Drum challenges with two controllers/ players, there just isn't any advantage to it.

Now...does anyone have any idea on what an easy method for causing a fumble is? I have been using X and get a lot of slo-mo hits on the ball carrier/ QB, but rarely do they seem to fumble, even when their "Carry" stat is an F.

Play with two controllers. Have controller 2 pick any pass play and controller 1 pick field goal block. Just keep running that over and over. You should definitely get it by the end of the game.

When I did that, I got it a couple plays into the second quarter with 5 minute quarters.

I wish my method of throwing the ball backwards behind the line of scrimmage would work

10-06-2009, 01:52 PM
Thanks for the tip...going to try it out later today, then crank out the torture of trying to see how many times my receiver can get hit in the face with the ball en route to 24 catches.

I used the "backwards pass" on the 1yd line to get the fumble recover TD achv, and also wish it would work for the 3 fumbles...it's just sooo easy!

DwayneDays
10-07-2009, 01:33 AM

This is what i have left-

-24 catches (must be done in 1p game as someone else said)
-allow no sacks (seems to need to be done in 1P game)
-allow no receiving touchdowns (seems to also need to be done in 1p game)
-kickoff for touchdown (hard to do even with 2 controllers unless u have 2 physical ppl ha, also u run out of turbo really quick)
-recover 3 opp fumbles (i did FG blocks, and recovered offensive and defensive fumbles and this method didnt work at all for me)
-50 yd field goal (this seems insane...i got a 48 but have missed at least 10 times for 50, is it from 35 yard line?)
-win BCF champ (haven't played around with this yet, i heard u can sim but didnt see the option)
-perfect score in half time show (i doubt many ppl will get this...its RIDICULOUS)

If you set your difficulty to Freshman, you can run kicks and punts back almost at will (as well as long running plays). Passing is absolute garbage, but seems improved (only drops the ball half the time) on the higher difficulties.

I am stopping this horrible game at the 975 mark...I feel dirty for ever playing this racist p.o.s. Yes, there is a "black" football conference, of Independent "black" colleges, but there are plenty of other races represented at those schools, and yet not one latino or "white" player on the field, in the band, in the stands, in the menu photos. Vote with your Ratings...I gave it 1 star and returned my game as "defective" and got my money back!

-24 catches (must be done in 1p game as someone else said) correct
-allow no sacks (seems to need to be done in 1P game) can be done with two controllers
-allow no receiving touchdowns (seems to also need to be done in 1p game) two controllers
-kickoff for touchdown (hard to do even with 2 controllers unless u have 2 physical ppl ha, also u run out of turbo really quick) run to the left, when a lot of defenders are there, go around to the right, should be a clear path. Don't use all the boost right away or they will catch you close to the endzone.
-recover 3 opp fumbles (i did FG blocks, and recovered offensive and defensive fumbles and this method didnt work at all for me) controller 2 pick pass play, controller 1 pick field goal block. You'll get it fast.
-50 yd field goal (this seems insane...i got a 48 but have missed at least 10 times for 50, is it from 35 yard line?) 33 yard line. try from the middle of the field.
-win BCF champ (haven't played around with this yet, i heard u can sim but didnt see the option) click on the last game. once you can quit, quit and check the standings. if you can win the division play the game. If not, start again.
-perfect score in half time show (i doubt many ppl will get this...its RIDICULOUS) no idea :(

I added what you can do it red.

thanks, I appreciate your input! :)

I'll give these a try again tonight w/2 controllers but I could have swore my game ended with a score like 77-0 and I didn't get either of the prevent TDs.

edit: ok 975/1000 now :)

Is there any trick or specific plays that work well for getting the 24 passes? So far in my games vs the CPU on Freshman, I have completed about the same number of passes as interceptions, despite my players looking open. Also some bone-headed drops, but sounds like that is expected.

Also, maybe I'm just very unlucky but in 10 tries none of my teams have finished above .500 for a season when "simming" up to the last game. Any particularly effective teams?

Lastly, for the guide, a video just showing what you did isn't really helpful. Yep, you got a fumble and returned it for a touchdown. In slow motion. And I get to see you dance 10 times forwards and in reverse. No idea what play you or your opponent were running. I ended up getting that (and most) of the achievements on my own, but if you really want to make a guide I'd recommend more details :).

1. Guide isn't finished.
2. I don't know what play is run. I just pick random ones and go with it.
3. You didn't have to watch the video at all.
4. How was I supossed to know I would be returning it for a TD? I backed up as far as I could go then filmed it.
5. Shall I remove the videos? Will that make you happy?

Seng, looks like things have not changed at all have they? Just like your guide for NCAA 10, it seems you take crap way too personal. I would have to say I agree with the above poster in their constructive criticism of your video. I put this game in my queu on Gamefly and I'm hoping for an informative guide, however all I am seeing is your banter again of "if you don't like it, then tough" attitude. If you are going to put in a video, then YES it should be there to help someone which your video basically does not. To answer #5, no it would not make me happy but instead it would be nice if they at least helped. Which is of course the purpose of an otherwise at the moment decent start to a guide. thx

When playing the game I don't have some magical thought to say. Oh aha! This will be returned for a TD. So I rewind as far as I can go and film from there.

I have caused fumbles on almost every type of defense. Can't know what the opponent is running, unless there is some magical way.

I'm just going to stop filming them. Screw it.

The achievement is for a 50 yard field goal. Truthfully it is basic
math. 10 yards for the endzone. 6 or so yards back.

kick from the 34.


Tomorrow I will be deleting the videos from the guide, I am tired of explaining why they are the way they are. And nothing postitive had been posted about them so far. So fuck it.

Tomorrow I will be deleting the videos from the guide, I am tired of explaining why they are the way they are. And nothing postitive had been posted about them so far. So fuck it.

No offense, but I have the 975/1000 G and your achievement guide DID NOT HELP AT ALL. Sorry to say, but what the community is saying about the guide and the videos is true. Their not helpful. BUT they could be very helpful if you put more effort into them, w/ actual descriptions that will help the less experienced player.

All in all the game is a complete JOKE, besides the marching band master achievement...

NE one who needs help with the 50 yard field goal, use two controllers, kick from the 33 YARD LINE, since that will be exactly a 50 YARD Attempt, now once you start your kick try and bring your other controller to go offside’s, if done correctly you will get a ACCEPT or DECLNE penalty screen, and one of the options will BE PAT IS GOOD, even if you missed it "like I did" the achievement will unlock. Hope that helps NE one having a hard time with that one.

Seng no disrespect, the guide is a WIP but to be considered that you need to continue to WORK ON ITS PROGRESS, or just delete the GUIDE and let a more experienced GUIDE WRITER take on this challenge...

Let's see. I have 7 or 8 guides under my belt finished. This is a work in progress. I have a very busy life and update when I have time. I make sure that the guide is top notch before completing it and submitting it. Really no need for the caps on guide writer, funny how you said no disrespect then cap guide writer to point it out. If you don't like it, don't use it. Make your own. I don't care.

This guide is by me and Pashos. When we have time and great information to add, we add it.

You know what I DIDNT USE IT, BC IT SUCKED and WASNT INFORMATIVE. How about instead of the attitude of "if you don't like it, dont use it" actualy put some work into the guide. The point of a guide is to help clarify acievements and how to get them in the easiest way. Your attempt at a guide has done NEITHER...

I did it!!! The easiest team that I have found and the one that I did this achievement with was Stillman College. Also, make sure that Stillman is your favorite team. For some reason, it makes the challenge easier to do. It is still barely possible to achieve, though. You need a 522 note streak to get 100%.

I will add this in and credit you when I have the chance. I have a 6 hour test today, after that I am free to update the guide. I think.


EDIT:

Updated the guide a bit. My aunt had emergency surgey today and driving down to see her tomorrow. So expect no more updates until Monday.

yeah stillman is still a pain in the ass, maybe if they mapped the buttons correctly on the screen or more similar to a freaking guitar controller

I'm planning on getting this game Thursday, so I decided to check out the guide...*sigh* another guide by Seng...Instead of being positive and taking any useful information/constructive criticism out of the above posts, he fly's off the deep end and tells everyone to go screw themselves if they don't like it.

It's not a helpful attitude for a guide writer to have, especially for such a great site.

Look's pretty straight forward, hopefully won't be a very hard/long 1000.

Is the marching band achievement similar in style to the drum line challenge one? Also, anyone here very experienced with a controller on Guitar Hero? Is it similar in nature?

The Drum Line one scrolls down, while the Marching Band one scrolls from right to left. It was definitely a lot harder. Even the easy for the marching band was harder than the easy for the drum line one. If you are good with a controller on Guitar Hero on hard or expert then you might be able to get a perfect on the marching band, but it will still be really hard.

Damn I just rented this and you guys are scaring me away from even attempting to play it because of that 1 achievement. Oh well I'm not a hardcore completionist I guess 975 is better than nothing.

By the way why all the bitching? I just read the entire guide and its helpful enough, majority of the achievements are incredibly basic. Is Seng supposed to specify a single play to run or something? Its a damn sports game, its fairly obvious and a guide is really unneeded.

edit: WOW, I was just messing around with this for a few minutes and there is no way I'll ever nail that 100%. Unless somebody discovers a cheatastic workaround for it or something but I don't see how that could be possible. That better be at least 500 points on TA.

I'd have to say that playing Guitar Hero on a controller only helped me a little bit. Since the button layout is entirely different, you basically have to relearn what to press. The only thing that Guitar Hero helped with concerning this achievement was my reflex time.

Any chance anyone knows of a video somewhere showing the challenge? I'm quite curious!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/1043/+LNzJg==.jpgThe Satellite Express (50 points)
Catch 24 passes with a single player (Max. 5 min. quarters, Single Player Mode)

Just pass to the same person the whole game, most likely you will be getting Athlete of the Year also. Some have reported this can only be with one controller. I will confirm the right answer ASAP.

Okay example you say that you will confirm this ASAP and its been up for 2 weeks and you dont even do anything... WTF

As Soon As Possible.

I haven't had the time to update this guide yet, or play the game. I have 10 minute spurts of freetime here and there unless it is late at night. I might, might, be able to check for this achievement tonight or tomorrow morning. This isn't normal for a guide made by me. But October has been a crazy month for me and for my life. So when I have the chance I will update it. No one else has confirmed it or denied it either, so if anyone has an answer please post and let us know.

Thanks (for hopefully understanding),

I'll post a video of me getting the band master challenge achievement so everyone can see what college to use and what the challenge is for those who don't have the game yet. It'll probably be pretty bad quality though since I don't have a capture card.

Something is better than nothing. I'll be getting this game soon as well.

Here's a little football knowledge for you guys. Generally in football, the holder on a field goal attempt is 7 yards behind the line of scrimmage. Add that to the 10 yard endzone, and you see that adding 17 to the current yard line gives you field goal range.

So for a 50 yard FG, 50-17=33. A 50 yard field goal would be from the 33 yard line.

Just to add a couple points here.

Power and Accuracy - I had difficulty finding a team whose kicker had enough leg to hit a 50yard FG. Finally hit one with Southern University. So if any one is working on that you might want to try Souther. NOTE: I just barely hit from 51 so good luck.

I am thinking about getting this game as most of the achievements are simple, but I want to be able to get the 1000/1000.

Has anyone found a method to get the marching band master achievement or is it even possible?

Thanks,
