View Full Version : Anyone else getting crashes EVERY time they unlock an achievement?

07-01-2006, 12:43 AM
5 achievements, 5 crashes. Most frustrating :(

2 Achievements, 2 crashes so far... Anyone heard of a fix or workaround for this one?

07-01-2006, 02:34 AM
hmmm a crash again on achievement 6 but then achievement 7 worked fine. strange. tis most annoying.

Mine hasnt crashed once. No problems whatsoever.

It WAS crashing on me EVERY mission...

All I had to do was Disable Notifications. And Disable Sound notifications now i have NO problems..

So if your having ANY trouble just do that and you'll be fine...

I think that he's on to something.

I turned sound off for notifications months ago. To do it the easy way, just go to Personal Settings and Online Status in the Guide and set it to "Busy."

Works great for watching movies too... until you change it or your box shuts off, notifications are temporarily disabled.

*** UPDATE ***

Even with an online status of "Busy," I still locked up unlocking the SU-27 Flanker. Guess it's a sometimes thing.

I tried the workaround too, to no avail. It sucks having to reset the box and redo your last mission in order to save, and the fact that the game sucks in the first place doesn't help it's cause... I'm officially giving up on this one!

When it notifies you that you have unlocked a plane, immediately push the big XBOX button in the middle of your controller. This will bring up the mini menu on the left. Then exit out of it and hit a to proceed and it will not freeze up on you.

My crashes have got a bit rarer once I got past the 6th plane unlock. how peculiar.

07-06-2006, 05:22 PM
Yep, mine has crashed too, and I have yet to get any of the achievements.

whenever u beat the mission dont press a real fast wait a sec then press just go slower and its shouldnt crash cuz mine used to but not any more

07-07-2006, 11:10 AM
hi, had the 'wait a sec' theory too. but every single achivement on HELL caused the box to crash. so it doesn't work either. sorry. :(

does anyone know if TAITO has a forum? i couldn't find it. they have just some outdated PS2 page.

they really need to be made aware of this...
i'll search the ubisoft ones. brb.

I know this is kind of an old topic, but I've recently just started playing it. Has anyone figured out a way to avoid this problem? I've tried shutting off the notifications and it still freezes.

Please read the thread! There are at least two workarounds that are suggested here!

[Eric;115146']Please read the thread! There are at least two workarounds that are suggested here! I tried all of that and I still get problems.

Was the same for me! Sometimes it worked triggering the Guide blade when the message showed that I got a new plane!

Sigh, I guess it's just dumn luck whether or not it will freeze up. I don't know how they let a problem like this slip past the testing stage.

Ever since i turned off notifications, i havent crashed at all. Thank you guys. But, i cant get done with one level to advance, i keep losing and getting mashed. So i guess its a 50 50 shot right now.
