Ok for anyone that has this can you please tell me.... Does it need to be in 1 save game file or is it over all games?

I'm sure I should have this by now. I've been starting the 1st level and then just letting it "drip" all night while I sleep then complete the level to save it. I've done this 3x8hrs now and as guide says 20hrs thought it would've unlocked by now

Thanks for any help :woop:

What i did that finally got it to work was.

Completely uninstall and reinstall the game.

Then i started a new game.
Left level 1 playing by itself for 5 hours.
Finished the level and saved.

Then started another new game.
Left level 1 playing by itself for 5 hours.
Finished the level and saved on a different slot.

Etc.

I did this 4/5 times and it eventually popped :)

Best of luck with it mate, this achievement sucks big time.

If there was some sort of tracker it wouldn't be so bad.

At the end of the day its a phone game so they shouldn't expect us to do these sort of things.

WELL THAT DIDNT WORK :mad:

I had over 30hrs of drip play over the 5 save game slots and nothing!!

Then I tried adding to my 1st save game slot by leaving each level for a few hrs, then completing the level to save it and doing same with next level.... I had over 32hrs like this and STILL NOTHING!!!!!!!!!!!

Any other methods out there guys???

I've even emailed chaotic games about this and a method to get the achievement but no reply yet..... F**KIN PI**IN me right off this now :mad:

I'm in the same boat. I was about to uninstall and reinstall using the method above, but after seeing your post, I think I'm going to avoid that.

I have a level 50 save, another save to the end of level 20 to get "Dedicated Dropper," and now a third one that I have been running on my phone for about 9 hours today. All told, that's at least 20 plus hours that I have put into this. I'm tempted to let it run overnight while I sleep, but I also don't want to FUBAR my phone...

I haven't been able to find another solution. If you get a response from the company, I would really like to see it.

What a bullshit achievement...

WOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO :woop: FINALLY GOT IT (@ some point in the night)

Ok on my 5 save games (using the method submitted above) I had...

1) 7hr
2) 4hr
3) 5hr
4) 7hr
5) 6hr

Thats 29hr and I didn't get it so I thought I'd try something else and do it in 1 save file so I used save 1 and played a few levels using the drip method and then saving after xxhrs and doing next level.

On top of the 7hrs I had already I did another 4hr, 12hr, 12hr and still nothing so I put it on overnight again yesterday/today for 8hrs and when I woke and completed level 14 I checked the achievements and there it was!!!!!

At a guess thats well over 35hrs to get it unlocked :locked

No matter how hopeless it looks just keep going and you should get there :Bounce:

This has now been deleted off my WP7 with a HUGE SMILE :woop:

I don't know if the count is taken from 1 game save file or ALL the save files..... that means it takes 35hrs (in one save file) or 57hrs if it's over them ALL - either way I agree..... it's a BULLSHIT cheeve!!!!

Just to confirm then, it popped while the game was running and not at the end of a level?

I am running off one save now that has at least 20 hours on it (on top of the 3 other save files that I recounted above). I let it run all night last night and am going to do it again tonight.

I am hopeful that upon finishing the level in the morning, I will be greeted with a nice surprise...

Still no achievement. I have now let the game run for 3 consecutive nights while I'm asleep. I'm beginning to think that it's just not going to happen for me.

Pops while the level is running.

It can't be taken from one save file, as the method i posted is the one i did and it unlocked for me :confused:

Before using that method i had several failed attempts at getting it.
