How to fix the disable vita chamber option
 
I was reading on another website about Bioshock and the glitch that happens to some people when they go for their Brass Balls achievement and find there is no option to either enable or disable vita chambers! Follow these three easy steps and you should be able to get your achievement.

1. Create a new or use existing account that you haven't played BioShock on.
2. Go to marketplace and download the DLC.
3. Go back to the game on the main account and the option is going to be there.

Like I said, I was reading on a different website and I don't take any credit for this as Shad0w D0g found this out. At least that's what I understand from the other website.

Enjoy :woop:

I just finally got a chance to try this out myself and I can 100% guarantee that is does in fact work.

Nice, this worked for me perfectly.

I have an alternative way to fix it:
 
Doing it this way requires you to have (or have access to) a second GT that's connected to LIVE.
The way I did it does not.

Firstly; make sure that you actually have the DLC. I know this sounds stupid but the way I read the road guide in the achievement list made it seem like the update was all you needed for the dlc to be active and that is certainly not the case.

So what I did was download the dlc, delete the cache and re-download the update. It wasn't until after I did all of that, that the option reappeared in my menu.

Good luck everyone :)

worked like a charm

I tried all that, twice. Once with the game installed, and once without it installed. Neither worked for me. Do you guys have the original edition or the platinum edition, and what xbox do you have (Slim, Original)?

This is starting to piss me off :/

Nevermind, got it to work. I did the trick with using another account to download the DLC again.

I created a free silver account to download it.

can you still get the achievement without this option showing up and just reloading if you die?

Im trying to get the DLC, but when I go to the market place for bioshock it just has the loading screen and nothing else, also checked xbox.com for the dlc and got nothing. i dont wanna start this game without getting the vita chamber option working.

Having the same issue, just a loading screen. I did however find it on xbox.com.

I also downloaded it back when it first came out so I went through my download history and found it. However I still cannot get the disable option to appear.

I have tried every suggestion posted but still no option to turn the chamber off, i give up.

grayvsgrey 09-08-2011 06:03 PM

I tried playing through the whole game on hard and simply shutting off the xbox when I started dropping to the ground. I only died four times, all during Big Daddy fights, and shut it off each time well before spawning in a chamber, but after defeating the final boss the achievement didn't unlock. Just confirming, that method does not work.

Oh, and this was on a memory stick with no other saves on it.

I'm also guessing that you could just transfer your license for the dlc since downloading the dlc with another account works. Downloading the dlc with another profile essentially just gives you a new license for the dlc and links it to the new console. Of course you would only have to use that method if you don't have access to a second account.

THANKS!!! hopefully this will help me 100% this game

This way didn't work for me, but I have a second Silver account and I did as the OP described and it worked

I can confirm that this does work. Sadly, I had to create another account, take microsoft's offer for 1 month free with it, then download. I couldn't seem to download with a pre-existing silver account I had (My GF's LOL). Before I did all of this though, I cleared my cache (not sure if that had anything to do with it)

CORPSIE19 04-30-2012 03:01 PM

thanks for the info :) ganna do this one today

polymoos 07-03-2012 03:33 PM

Sorry for bumping an old thread but this didn't seem to work for me. I tried both deleting the DLC and with a second account and no luck.

Rex Ranarum 07-09-2012 06:24 PM

same here :/ though I didn't try the second account trick since I have none...

bashfulhampster 09-03-2012 07:23 AM

1. Delete DLC and Bioshock.
2. When you have your HD selected in settings, Press Y, clear system cache
3. Make another silver account on your xbox and download the DLC.
4. Login on your main account and play.
