Hi guys,

Doubt that works because I am sure that kdog would already have achieved this.

Ok, Crash 27 and I have BOTH been having alot of problems getting this achievement.

What we we're doing was leaving it sit, then simply returning to lobby. Well I talked to Drakkenstrike this morning and he told me that how he got it was by doing the same thing BUT putting a time limit on it and having it auto-launch.

Crash also Talked to Noggin Shot and he said the same thing and the reason being is that doing what we we're doling makes the match "Unofficial"

Remember to do this if you are doing so.

Im just leaving it on overnight. Im doing a player match 45 mins long with 15 secs autolaunch timer. I have 15 private slots and max players 16.

You think this will work?

Crash

have you got a play and charge kit?

coz you wud have to leave it 80 hrs before you cud actually get an answer to that question, so if you have a charge kit i wud highly recommend using it just in case. thats what ive been doing

If you have a wireless, just leave them shits plugged in.

Damn..would putting the timer for 45 minutes and putting NO for join progress would it work? I also had auto-launch 15 seconds.

I didn't even check the forums for this I thought that would be okay...I just changed the settings to :

Private slot - 1
Max players - 2
Join in progress - Yes
Auto - Launch - 15 seconds.
45 Minute timer.

yes it will work, i got the achievement with this:
Private slot:2
Max Players:2
Join In Progress: No
Auto-Launch: 15 seconds

And in case anyone is wondering you can do this with a wireless controller without having it plugged in. The controller turns off, but the game keeps going.

Alright cool. So it doesn't matter whether Join in Progress is on or off?

I got this the other day by leaving it on overnight, works like a charm.

I got the achievement last night by doing the same thing. But, you should leave JOIN in progess off. Otherwise some guy will join and shot you and probably leave negative remark about you for not playing. This took me a week to get with the 360 on all night. You should hook it to the play and charge kit because the other day I saw a weird message under my gamertag. It said AWAY when I had the wireless hooked up and it powered down. I assume AWAY doesnt count toward the achievement. Also, 5min time limit works better. I tried 45minutes and for some reason the system would go offline.

I've been doing this for the past few days, but I'm using 30 minute matches. Can anyone confirm that this method works with an account chaging to "away" status?

i was always marked away and i still got the achievement after 4 straight days @_@

Is there some kind of counter that displays the total time you have played or do you just have to guess?

seantak
07-03-2006, 03:28 PM
No counter. You have to guess. It really doesnt matter since you just do the auto launch trick and leave the system on all night. Keep doing that eight hours or more at a time x 10.

This is how I have been doing it. The only problem is, lately my cable compny does maintenance after 2am in the morning and it cuts off XBL. If I look at the game, it's still going even though it's an XBL player match. Do you think the hours it was running when XBL was disconnected would count since it was the same auto-launch game?

You MUST finish the game! And the game must be the same type! I've done like 70 hours so far...

can somebody who has the achivement sum up all the chatter in this forum:

Can it be done overnight? What should be the specs? Can i use my wireless? What happens if it goes to "Away"?

Thanks

Okay well I figured out mathematically that I had at least 15 hours in from a long time ago, when getting the other multiplayer achievements.

Then for 4 days in a row, I did what this thread said, getting about 15 hours each day.
That would equal 75 total hours so far.

I knew I was close, so I left it on for another 7 hours, which would have brought me to 82.

I also played in real matches for about 2 hours today and about 5 or 6 yesterday.

Therefore, I should have 90 hours in by now. (At least, because if I was ever unsure, I always rounded down a few hours). I also didn't include probably 5-10 hours or so of playing for fun a few months ago.

I am thinking that the reason for this not popping up is because I played different game types.
I think I have about 60 hours from Team Chaos, 10 from Chaos and 20 from Steal the Sample.

So if anyone is about to do this, make sure you do the same game type for all 80 hours!

Unless someone here got it from 80 hours from all different game types, can you tell me so I know to give up because it's glitched for me?

This method worked like a charm for me, no probs what-so-ever.
Just went to player match, seek and secure, changed options to 45 minutes length, no join in progress, 15 sec re-spawn, 2 max players and 1 private spot. Had the achievement in a few days, picked up a cheap 235 gamerscore all up without playing the game much :P

Auto-Launch: 15 seconds

:D

Okie doke... This is the last multiplayer achievement that I need for this game. I haven't played this game in FOREVER... so yea... I'm going back and earning the achievements that I left behind. I'm using the settings you mentioned here, so I hope it works. :)

Edit: I used all the settings you mentioned, but failed to forget about the "Auto-Off" feature that Xbox 360 has and I had made Enabled. I Disabled it, so hopefully no more problems.

I got 80 hours from all gametypes.

I went through all the kill acheivements with a certain "fugitive" but wasnt counting how many hours I'd put into it.

Started to count the number of hours from "0" and created a chaos game lasting 20 mins and left the 360 running while I went to work and just took each day as being 8 hours. I got the acheivement after only 4 days - so only 32 hours after I started counting.

There is no way on earth it took the two of us the remaining 48 hours to do all the achievements - I reckon about 20 at the very most, so the "clock" must also count time you've spent in split screen as I spent a while in that mode trying to see if other acheivements could be unlocked that way (note - they cant).

It might also be worth noting that the counters for how many kills you have a mind of their own - I was getting the points for kills, road kills, headshots after only about 30 or so when the requirement asked for 150 (forgive me if I've got all the numbers wrong as it was a while ago!) The only time the counter was correct was getting the 1000 kills. I mention this because, IF the counter is screwed, you could leave for 360 on forever and never get the 80 hours acheivement...
