Might not really be needed for it but may help some people.

I will gladly accept help with the achievements since I have to send my Xbox in for repair again (this time for the drive).

If anyone has an easier way to get the achievements, let me know.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t01.jpg
COBOL
Advance to the second level using default settings.
5 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

See “User”. This with “7 Seconds” are probably the easiest to get

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t02.jpg
Team!
Achieve a score of 20,000+ while playing an Xbox Live Co-op game.
5 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

Play co-op online with a friend and total 20,000 points. If you lose all your guys before the other player does, stay connected because when the points are cumulative and if they hit the 20K mark, you get the achievement still.

High Score
Get first place on in-game score board using default settings.
10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

Get 1st place on the in game leaderboard. Not sure of the score yet. Its around 25, 600+. Good luck.

7 Seconds
Stay alive in the Light Cycle level for 7 seconds.
10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

This is a pretty easy achievement. Easiest on the first level when you are going up against one bike. You can use the LT or RT to go faster. Just block out the other bike so he will do some turns or just go slow. I beat it on my second try by going to the left then running straight up. The other bike kept turning around in its little maze and presto!

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t05.jpg
BASIC
Advance to the third level using default settings.
10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

See “User”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t06.jpg
Vs. Master
Win 3 Classic Versus games over Xbox Live.
10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

Play Versus online and just win 3 games. Easiest done with a friend

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t07.jpg
Exterminator
Kill all the Grid Bugs in the 1st level IO tower.
10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

You have to do this quickly as the timer on the first level is very short. The spiders on are on the sides and the top.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t08.jpg
Fortran
Advance to level 4 on the default settings.
10 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

See “User”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t09.jpg
Block Blaster
Destroy all the MCP blocks in the 2nd level.
20 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

Start on the left corner and shoot the blocks out as they keep coming. The achievement should unlock once you have a giant space. This does not need to be done on default settings. Thanks to xxGu1TARGODxx for the tip

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t10.jpg
Dodgy
Enter the IO tower without shooting any Grid Bugs.
25 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

This is a medium achievement. You just have to avoid the multiplying spiders and get in one of the sides. Probably easiest on the first level. Will take practice. I got it by going straight up first and getting the bugs that way then quick to the left and up and around the bugs.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t11.jpg
Six Shooter
Enter the MCP cone with a maximum of six shots.
35 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

Like “Block Blaster”, start on the left corner. It takes 3 shots to knock out one color line on the first level. If you start all the way to the left and shoot quickly, you should be able to make enough room to move Tron through. Just remember the blocks keep moving left to right so you may have to slightly move with it to stay alive. They also will come back around so any you have shot would be gone.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/achievements/352/t12.jpg
User
Advance to level 12 using the default settings.
45 http://live.xbox.com/xweb/lib/images/G_Icon_External.gif

This is probably the most difficult achievement to get. Each level has 4 parts: Light Cycles, MCP, I/O Tower and Tanks. On each part as you progress, things get harder. The second Light Cycles level has 3 cycles to beat, there are more spiders on the I/O tower, more tanks and the MCP cone moves a bit faster. This will take a lot of practice.

Great job...none of the achievements seem terribly twitchy or picky. Is it worth mentioning that the "default settings" do not seem to include the default control setting? I've been using the 3rd scheme instead of the default, and am still unlocking achievements...

You can get "block blaster" without being on default settings. I was just playing around and I unlocked it that way.

Thanks. I don't know if the control settings has any effect. I think its just the regular game settings.

Can anyone else verify this? My Xbox went back this morning for repair.

The enhanced graphics option doesn't effect the default setting achievements.

Any Setting to unlock
7 Seconds
Exterminator
Block Blaster
Dodgy
Six Shooter

I will try to test to see if Go Team! will unlock without default settings.Yes you can adjust the settings and complete Go Team! Also Vs. Master wouldn't unlock in a private match but Go Team! will.

Good guide.

For people who aren't familiar with the arcade version, the key to 7 Seconds is only using the triggers until you've boxed in the CPU; after that, just move normally and he'll usually take a while to run himself into his path.

When I do the first level, I typically move left immediately, then hold the trigger and race all the way up the side, then turn right and hold the trigger until I cut him off. That will generally box the first guy in, and at least two of the three guys on the second level. I believe that the third set of lightcycles cannot be boxed in so easily. The key is to knock out at least one guy quickly to remove his trail so you don't get boxed in by the others.

IIRC, the MCP blocks will come around twice at most, so for Block Blaster, once you start to see columns that you didn't clear completely come back around, you need to knock them out that second time, or you won't get them all. (I also think it's easier if you move close to the blocks so that you can fire more quickly.)

(double post) Also, you were right on the money. The default high score is 25,602.

Please, PLEASE do not take this the wrong way, but this guide is anemic. I do not troll the main forums very often, but one of the most recent discussions regarding this site was the quality of the guides. I understand that some guide is better than no guide, but I would recommend not stickying a guide until it meets the standards that were set forth in the forum.

It is my understanding that a good guide (a great guide for that matter) assumes absolutely no familiarity with the game and gives step by step tips on how to get the achievement. For example, a good guide might gives us the following:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/352/t07.jpg Exterminator 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg

Kill all of the grid bugs in the first I/O tower level

The Tron arcade game is composed of 4 individual games. The I/O tower is located in the "Grid Bugs" game. This is probably the easiest game in Tron. The object of this game is to move Tron into the "flashing circle" which is the I/O Tower in the center of the screen before time runs out. The Grid Bugs (which appear in the movie for a whopping 3 seconds) multiply like mad, and if Tron touches them, he dies. If Tron makes it into the I/O Tower, he is beamed up, and the game is completed.

To defeat all the Grid Bugs on level 1, defeat the Grid Bugs on the right side first, then the left side, and finally, the Grid Bugs on top. You have to clear the 4 Grid Bugs on the right in approximately 4-5 shots. Proceed to the left and continue firing, destryoing the Grid Bugs before they begin to multiply. If there are more than 7 Grid Bugs, your chances to complete this achievement are greatly diminished. Finally,finish the Grid Bugs off up top and head into the I/O Tower.

Regarding the User achievement, there are patterns to each game over the 12 levels (48 patterns over all). I'll try to get something comprehensive up this weekend, but it is going to take a lot of work.

Vergs,

While I won't disagree that the guide could use more, if you read the beginning of my post, I state that my Xbox was going in for repair and would accept help on the guide and give credit where its due. Unfortunately, with my Xbox going in, I'm not able to play the game to the point where I could do a more comprehensive guide.

Not sure why, but for some reason many of the achievements aren't unlocking for me - like at all.

I remember when the arcade game was first released...unfortunately, I am still about as skilled playing it as I was back then.

Any hints on limiting the MCP to 6 hits? Either I shoot too many, or not enough, then there isn't room to slip by.

More practice for all of the levels, I guess....
