Ok so this is my 1st guide, so go easy on me! I'll start only with the achievements i have so far. I'll start off with a few tips etc.

First, most matches apart from leagues and online achievements will use Barcelona Vs. B36 (Faroe Islands). These seem to be a fairly incompetent team!!
Second, try to use the aftertouch as much as you can, this will be a godsend when scoring goals!
See the "Achievement Trading" thread, if you are having trouble with the online achievements. (Goalscoring Superstar Hero could be tough!)Onto the guide:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/01.jpgDeus-Ex Socca 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Defeat a team in single player mode

This should be one of the 1st achievements to get in SWOS, it may help when you go into the single player menu to extend the half times to 5 minutes. Win, and 5G is yours!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/02.jpgOver The Moon 5 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Score 10 goals in Single Player over the course of a SWOS game session.

This doesnt havent have to be done in one match, there is another achievement for that. Set up a friendly: Barca Vs. B 36 (Faroe Islands) and play through, once the match has finished, choose replay and play the match again. 10 goals later you'll be rewarded with 5G. Splendid!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/05.jpgHigh Tension 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a penalty shootout.

This can be done as well as geting the "Possession" achievement. For this, a friendly won't cut it. You have to set up a DIY cup. Set it for one round, one leg and no extra time but WITH penalties. Play the match (should be 3 min. on default) just pass around the ball. Remeber you have to draw at the end of 90 minutes to get to the penalty shootout. The shootout itself is pretty self explanatory, choose a direction and shoot. The length you hold A will determine the power of the shot. You dont control the goalkeeper and if you set up Barca Vs. B36 (Faroe Is.) this should be a breeze!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/06.jpgIt Is Now 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win a game by scoring the winning goal in injury time.

Set up a 2 player friendly match, Barca Vs. B 36 (Faroe Is.) Play the match but in the second half use the 2nd controller to score an own goal on 90 minutes. This is tried and tested by myself and works! A shiny 15G comes your way for this!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/08.jpgGentlemanly Conduct 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Play a match without any of your players receiving a card.

I got this along with "Deus Ex Socca". To me it seems quite random how cards are given out. All i can is say is that it is fairly rare. Avoid slides from behind if possible but more often than not it wont even be a foul!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/09.jpgPossession 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Achieve an end of match Possession rating of 75% or higher

Again, can be gotten along with "High Tension". Use very short halves (3 min.) and again i used Barca Vs. B 36 (Faroe Is.) Keep passing the ball and make a few runs. Remember, the longer a player is running with the ball, the more likely he is to lose control of it, so keep the ball moving by passing it. An incredible 20G in return for this!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/11.jpgThrash'Em 30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Defeat any team in single player by 10 goals or more.

Go into the single player menu and click Options. Select 10 min halves, 3 subs from 5 and a hard pitch (This should make the ball run for a little bit longer). The exit and choose friendly. I chose Barca Vs. B 32 (Faroe Is.), play through the match a score over 10. Remember the aftertouch will really help, and the fact that B 36 aren't exactly the strongest team in the game. If you set a 4-4-2 with Barca, the 2 forwards are very good and should easily get the goals you need. Other than this it's pretty self explanatory.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/03.jpgStay The Distance 15 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Complete a single player preset league in 1st, 2nd or 3rd.

Thanks to TMANEDD for this. Quickest way is to set up a a league in Ghana. Choose Great or Hearts (I chose hearts btw). Then simply sim every match, i only played one match which was Hearts Vs. Great, which was the title decider. Finish in the top 3 And 15G is yours!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/07.jpgChamps 20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
End a national league as the best team.

Thanks to TMANEDD again for this. Same as "Stay The Distance" only you need to finish 1st. Again, set up a Ghana league and choose Great or Hearts, then sim away! 20G for a quick sim session!


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/12.jpgWorld Of Friends 10 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win an Xbox Live Friendly Match

Can be "Player" or "Ranked" match, any match length. Pretty self explanatory. Just win! (P.S- Thanks to CaptainKicker for the trade)


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/289/10.jpgGoalscoring Superstar Hero 25 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Win by 5 or more goals in an Xbox Live ranked match.

Again, pretty self explanatory, win by 5 or more goals on a "Ranked" match. Doesnt matter if it's 5-0, 6-1, 7-2 etc. Can be tough, but see the "Achievement Trading" thread for a quick 5+ win. (Again, thanks to CaptainKicker for the trade!)



All thats left now is the diving header. If anyone has it and knows how to do it, let me know!

*Any comments on the Guide, or if you know an easier way to get an achievement are welcome!*

where do i select B36? i take it its in club teams cause you picked barcelona, but i cant find them anywhere!

TMANEDD
12-21-2007, 07:53 AM
They are within the Faroe Islands section. You can use any poor team against Barca and it still makes getting the achive easy.

For the "Champs" & "Stay The Distance" achives you can SIM a whole preset league. I did a preset league in Ghana. Choose "Hearts" or "Great". They seem to be the best 2 teams. Just sim the league ( its not very long ) and you should get those 2 achievements.

any tips on diving header, last one i need?

Cleeo 182
12-21-2007, 06:44 PM
Thanks for those TMANEDD, did you use the new version, coz i simmed a whole spanish season to no avail.

As for the diving header Jimbodangerous, i have conceded a few, but never scored 1!

It looks like the best way maybe to force the keeper into a save and hit a rebound, or maybe from cross/corner. But like i said havent actually managed to hit one!

It was on the old version, but just tried it on the new and it still works.

Glad the tips helped! Great game!

As for the diving header, pick Barca or another top level side and go all out attack. I suggest a lofted cross field ball across the goal from a way out. You will have men up if you hold the ball up long enough. Simply hit up or down and fire. Sooner or later you will get lucky! No real trick to this one.

another idea to get achievement for 75% possession. Simple just play against computer, and keep passing towards your goalkeeper and keep shooting own goals. You'll lose the game around 33-0 but you'll have at least 85% possession.

Jack Bauer Jnr
12-22-2007, 07:22 PM
^ I tried this. Works like a charm. Every time I play to win I always seem to get possession just below 75% which annoyed the hell out of me.

i have tried simulating the matches and i can sim up to 5 games before the game doesn't even let me play or sim the match. i don't get the option to sim or play the match, anyone else having this problem now?

That would probably be because you have a red-carded player or an injured player, check your line up and make a sub. Its wierd that the unavailable sub ends up on he bench but your squad is only 16 big!

Try that and let me know if that solves it :)

Zeratul PL- I'll add that up on the guide later mate! Cheers for the info

A very useful guide thanks very much. All that is left is that diving header. Does anyone know how to make the ball get more height so when i cross the ball it doesn't dribble along the floor?

It depends if you are shooting up down the pitch, if shooting up, hold A then straight away press down and d-pad, that will lift the ball of the ground further. Vice versa for shooting down, hold A then press up.

Wrote this in another topic, its for the diving header, could take some time, but its maybe the easiest way.

"
Another way to get it is to play a 2 player friendly match (with 2 joypads), then choose Brazil vs Solomon Islands, Brazil being the team that gets the achievement. Then get corners for brazil (kick the ball out as player 2), When you take the corner remember to pull a little back on the d-pad (so you get some height) And after a couple of tries you will score on a header. And the time dosent run out if solomon dosent get it to the middlefield."

Diving header I got by:

Hard pitch
2 player friendly - no one operating pad 2.
Just in from the right side and slightly up from the halfway line, pass the ball using the "up and under" with som eaftertouch to the right.

i.e push diagonally up left, press A, on release press right.

This will swing the ball in to the penalty area far post

A forward should be there running up, press A to head it just inside the far post.

Take a good few goes to get it and you may find if you are too far up you'll bang the ball straight in the goal.

Teams used were Holland (scoring) vs Faroe Islands

Slightly easier attempt (especially if grass is vertival stripes) locate the strip that leads just inside the left post (or right)

Get your man running vertically up that (scoring up in this example)
Do an up and under from just below your half way straight up the pitch (use midfielder or defender just below halfway line)
The extra bounce (using Hard as the surface) makes a straight header running directly vertivally up the pitch from your attacker much easier. (an old trick from the ST which still works on this version)

Hope that helps

I need a few things cleared up. What is an aftertouch and how do you use it, and how do you kick the ball higher into the air?

Thanks

o Mandrick o
01-07-2008, 02:03 AM
4 types of shot :

tap the A button = pea roller to nearest man or just anywhere it wants to half the time.

Push direction hold A - low hard shot/pass

No direction on analog when you let go of A = long ball

Push direction so your man runs and on release of A pull the stick in the OPPOSITE direction to the way you are running = an up and under long ball

(eg if you run up the pitch press A and when you release pull back on the analog stick.)


After touch = once the ball leaves your toes, you don't have to kick it in a straight line from the bloke that kicked it. EG. 45 degree flight path. Straight up or down.

Apply after touch, you can bend it left or right once its left your player to help improve your chances of scoring (or passing into better space.)
simply use the analog to bend it to the direction you want it to bend as the ball leaves your guy's toes.
Not sure how else to explain it. Maybe someone else can clarify if that doesn't make sense.


UPDATE TO THE HEADER ACHIEVEMENT:
You can click in the right analog and pull back on the stick. This zooms out and makes setting it up easier, as you can see more of the pitch and your players.
Zoom out only works on single player though it would seem.
Didn't work on friendly with my bro over Xbox live. Shame that. Nice function.

Can i do penalty shootout achievement in local or i wont matter but i can smash pens overon pad 2 and hopefully i will score some of mine. (only scored one in 25 pens against CPU).

As stated in the guide set it up as stated as a DIY cup game. Bracelona vs team from faroe isles. Thats how i did it. 3 min halves.
You can't miss the penalties - they were saving them all? Thats just bad luck in all honesty. Are you holding the shoot button and pushing towards a corner? That'll give it the necessary oomf hopefully!
Sounds daft but if you are tapping it (not taking hte Mickey here) that could be your problem
Honestly, its a doddle. They saved one of mine but still guessed enough direction to win.
However it'd only take 6 mins to find out the answer to your own question if it works in two player.
Hope you get it. :)

PK shootout in this game is a joke. I've lost somewhere in the area of 6 shootouts in a row now.. and no.. I'm not bad at this game. The B36 keeper will either save it, or I'll hit the damn crossbar. And when I can make 3 shots or so a shootout, my keeper lets in every single shot for the other team!

Also, might want to point out for the "It Is Now" Achievement that the 90th minute goal has to be from a tied match, not with the player in the lead or behind.

sorry to hear that. I'm not sure what else to say apart from it sounds really frustrating. I didn't have any probs at all and I'm not brilliant at it by any means.
Guess I was just lucky then! SOrry I can't be of any more help. Guess its a case of try, try and try again.
Hope ya get it

Finally got it. lol

Ended winning 9-8. We each took so many shots that players started taking second shots. I can't believe some crap Faroe Islands team managed to keep up. :confused:

End a national league as the best team.

Thanks to TMANEDD again for this. Same as "Stay The Distance" only you need to finish 1st. Again, set up a Ghana league and choose Great or Hearts, then sim away! 20G for a quick sim session!


To make this achievement quickly. Just choice the Indian championship, there's less teams, and Play as Bengal. There's no need to play any game with this team! Just sim all way down to victory! ;)

I realise you need to be a certain team but I've no idea where I'm looking to even sim a league.

I just don't get this game! :(

If you don't want to mess around with the Ghanian/Indian leagues you can just be Glasgow Rangers they normally clean up their league every time. Simple go to League select Scotland and pick Rangers, Glasgow blues, whatever they're called, and them sim your games.

The diving header in my experince is best pulled off from a cross thats just outside the area parrel with the six yard box.

I can call myself a veteran of this game, I played SWOS from the very beginning. since 1996 in my primary school. this game was a blast and for me it is still one of my favourite soccer/football games. the gameplay is a pure pleasure. the only thing that bothers me is that there is no licensed names. pity !

I didn't need a guide for the reasons I wrote above, but I think it is really good and for the newbies there are lots of helpful tips and tricks.
