View Full Version : Hard Day's Work achievement glitch
02-18-2007, 04:45 PM
i delivered 7 papers on the first day on Hard Way but did not get the achievement. i check the guide and the author said that achievement was glitched on his xbox... did anyone else have any problems with this one? is there something special i have to do to get it?

I have the same problem. An ideas?

you have the cc99999 glitch. I named it after me. I finally unlocked it after delivering 9 papers on default settings on hard difficulty and finishing the obstacle course.
There is hope.

I got mine only delivering 7, sucks that it doesn't work for some people, but I don't think it's glitched everywhere.

Sucks but some people have to deliver a perfect day to get this achievement

make sure everything is still at default settings. that could cause a problem for people if they are jacking up the number of lives or somethin...

i havent changed any of the settings but thanks for the tips guys. looks like i gotta go for a perfect day.

i only got it after getting more than 7.

I used default settings and got it on about the 3rd try. I had been trying to get the perfect day. I thought you could throw more than one paperfor the game to count the house as being delivered but even if you get the points to show up on the matt they like to cancel their subscription. I delivered all 10 once but two left because I tossed too many papers on their matt or in / at thier box.
Look to see that you had at least 7 houses stay, I think if they don't stay with you it doesn't count as one of the seven.

I delivered 10 (Had a perfect delivery) and got the achievement, i would suggest practice! Not that hard as you remember the sequence!

Yea, I just got it, delivered 9, 9 kept subscriptions, died once, and didn't complete the training course. They should have made the achievement a little clearer...

yeah, i had to get a perfect day too. i don't know what microsoft's "rigorous" certification process consists of, but it obviously has nothing to do with making sure achievements work properly

I just got perfect delivery on Monday on Hard way and I died once and did not complete the training course and achievement did not unlock. WTF! This achievement should be the same for everyone because that's not fair. I know people on my FL who have it unlocked and they didn't even get a perfect delivery.

Just got this achievement delivered 9 papers didn't die until half way through the obstacle course, very weird.

Alot of arcade game achievements are glitched...
12-16-2007, 08:51 PM
i also delivered 7 and had 7 returning customers and it didnt unlock. this sucks!
finaly got it and i deliverd 9 papers and didnt finish the training course.

I delivered every single newspaper, and I still didn't get the Achievement. Are there any tips on how to try and get it?

Mine is glitched as well...i will just keep trying!!! *sad face*

With the recent sale on Amazon for this, maybe a few more people will be looking for this (like I was). I tried several times last night for a "Perfect Day" as referenced in this thread, but kept coming up short. Usually 8 or 9 - still no achievement.
When I did get it I only got 9, but I made a conscious effort to deliver them to the doormats, not the mailboxes and it worked. I can't say that's the answer, but it's what I did.

I need this too.
08-14-2009, 10:04 PM
Mine's been glitched since the game came out, I wonder what's causing it? Anyway, thanks for the methods posted so far, I think I'll try and see if I can unlock it.
11-10-2009, 01:21 AM
Well, doesn't this game suck anyway?
08-17-2010, 06:11 PM
Besides the point really.
Anyway, I decided to give this another go and after many attempts on getting 7 and 8 papers, I finally unlocked it. The time I unlocked it I delivered 9 papers and didn't finish the assault course.

Got it with 7 papers and a crash in the training course
