Ahh yeah, that's what I did to get the 50 mile achievement... couple rounds on the interstate can add up the miles.


I love driving/racing games so this isn't too much of a chore for me but its rather ridiculous on 2K's part for requesting this and it only being worth 10 GS.

Man.... this is terrible, I've lost out on a good 60 miles due to freezing. It happens when I go to the garage to fix my car or back home to park my car, it doesn't actually freeze 'cause music is still playing off my USB drive and when I open the disc tray it takes me back to the dashboard, but still the game locks up where I can't do anything but open the disc tray or just turn the damned thing off.


Also, I'm at about 10 hours played with what should be 200 miles.


For people that have calculated this stuff how many miles are you averaging per hour? I'd like to think I could do anywhere between 50-100 miles a day.

You can save at your safe houses in the DLC just go into the spinning house marker inside the house/flat and press X

This freezing is getting really annoying, it looks as though one round trip on the interstate is fine, I can come back to my place and save.


Now, I do one round trip on the interstate and before I start my next one I stop for a bit and slow down making sure it doesn't freeze, everything seems good so I start my next trip and as I come back to save it freezes.


My 360 is brand new so its not that it. Seems like a problem with the game all of the speeding and rendering of the city is just too much for it and when you finally start to slow down it just can't take it and locks up or maybe its a cache problem, I did delete mine and still freezes.

With games like this I'd suggest always installing to HDD if you haven't. If you have, delete it and reinstall it.

I'm thinking it might be an issue with XBL and the Mafia 2 servers.

This achievements is a bit of a joke. Either they are complete jerks or they grossly overestimated how addictive the leaderboards would be and therefore really thought people would be playing the missions over and over to try and beat high scores. Personally, I really dont see myself ever getting back to 100% in this game simply because of this achievement. Oh well, still a good game overall.

I have the same problem mate, everything was working fine till now. Every time I get some miles and want to go and save the game it freezes. I've lost over 200 miles because of this BS. Yes my game is installed to HDD, I tried to reinstall it and it didn't help, I cleared my cache and it's still freezes. I'm ready to give up on this achievement cause the only thing I was doing so far was wasting my time.

is there any vehicles that dont need to be fueled up. i know some vehicles cant use the garage etc. If there is one that doesnt need fuel then you could use a rubberbanded remote for this achieve. im doing it now in a shubert pickup with the speed limiter on but im running out of fuel. im going to try the fuel tanker and a few big trucks to see what happens.

yea i rubberbanded the left stick to go right and put another on the RT so it would spin in circles. i got about 20 miles before i ran out of fuel lol. ive checked a few big trucks and they all use fuel. i was just curious cause in a mission when i stole a truck i tried to go to a garage and it wouldnt let me just to see. i havent tried a bus yet.

using a rubberbanded remote is not a good idea. here are some results from a simple test i ran.

STARTING PARAMETERS
starting time 11:50a
ending time 12:28p

MILAGE TOTALS BEG-END
milage at 11:50a - 362.32
milage after fuel runs out 12:28p - 370.87

SETTINGS
speed limiter is on max seems to be about 18-19mph

A whopping 8 miles in like 40 minutes. this would be a perfect idea to let it run forever if fuel didnt run out. aside from that this is useless as running the highway course nets you almost 10 miles per round trip. anyway i thought id let people know hehe

CowCowGarcia
09-10-2010, 06:02 PM
Ridiculous achievement. Nobody wants to do this, it's dreadful. I wouldn't even call it an achievement. Why didn't they just put - ''Complete Jimmy's Vendetta on Hard'' and let everyone just play the game and when they've finished not have to bore themselves into hating the game they once loved by driving 1000 miles

RadiantViper

Fuel actually never fully runs out. The car will just slow to crawl and it has major trouble accelerating.

I rubberbanded and drove in circles while I went to school. So total I left it sitting there for about 10 hours. I gained a grand total of 50 miles, and when I got back the car was barely moving.

I started it again, and this time I'm gonna try and pinpoint how long it takes until the car is going to slow to be effective. Then I should get a decent time/miles ratio, not even close to what you can get by actually driving though.

This achievement is stupid and I'd much rather just rubberband it over the course of a week or so instead of actually playing it. And of course I can always intersperse it with small sessions of driving up and down the highway.

From the looks of that picture it looks as though he started a new save in one of the other slots as he is only 2% completion.

Maybe the miles don't actually count on another save? Can anyone confirm or deny this, maybe someone that started a new save and has gotten the 1000 miles.


I'm really concerned about this now because my game keeps freezing so I used up all 3 save slots for new games but I have 200 on one, 400 on another and my last 400 on the third and final slot.

I just glitched through the floor and fell into oblivion, but it was still tallying up my miles traveled. So if it is reproducable, then that would be a non-rubberband rubberband method.

i dunno why the miles wouldnt be cumulative through all the saves. every other stat was except the million points. i had a corrupt save at 64% and restarted and got my 1000 kills 100 headshots and 100 cars destroyed on the next save early on my second go. then again it could be a error by 2k and miles dont count on another save even though it shows the complete total.
