Guide: So you want the 350g Secret Achievement?

There it is in all its glory. Want it. Keep on reading.

This is a step by step guide, which I have taken from Matt_Geez2003uk. Without him this would still be a unknown achievement driving all us absolutley mental.

I hear you cry that this will take forever. It actually took me a maximum of 3 hours. Amazing really. The good thing is once you hit the 100% at the top you have it. So when do you get it? Well I got mine one week after New years Revolution. Which is not too bad to be honest, and with the simple steps matt has set up it really must be up there as an easy achievement.

First up, controller plugged in, WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2008 in the tray, then lets go get you these points!

So how this guide will work is simple bullet points. and I also have rambled on too much here.
  • Click 24/7 Mode
  • New
  • Play as WWE General Manager
  • Pick Raw (Cause they get first pick) Well sometimes.
  • Draft new rosters
  • Pick Shawn Michaels & Rey Mysterio.
No on this part you may find that another show will take one of these. I did it with these guys so I just back out untill I have signed up both wrestlers (I done year contract) seriously money will not be an issue here!
  • Once you have both stars hit continue
  • (Are you sure you want to leave the draft?) pick YES
  • Clean/Dirty Turn - Shawn Michales change to Dirty
  • Set Champions - one as wwe Champion, and one as intercontinental
  • Accept! Yes proceed!
So first part is done. Now this part is simple. Yet there have been some miss comunications so follow closely,

Skip the cinematic. Cause no one cares, we just want these points.
  • Click Laptop
  • Click Options
  • Difficulty = legend
  • Click Play options
  • Play Options = scroll through to re-run
  • Injuries = OFF
  • Save - just incase
Okay that bits done. Next step

Ignore the phone. All you will get is the same messages every day etc from Mcmahon saying no injjuries or Jim Ross telling you to go invade other shows.
  • Click Calender
  • Click the first day (1st April) RAW
  • Match 1 = Table Match (Both stars will come up automatically)
  • Continue
  • Match 2 = Ladder match (Both stars will come up automatically)
  • Continue
  • Match 3 = Hardcore Match (Both stars will come up automatically)
  • Continue
  • Match 4 = Intercontinental Title = TLC Match (Both stars will come up automatically)
  • Continue
  • Main Event = WWE Championship = Steel Cage Match (Both stars will come up automatically)
  • Continue
Now I know Matt said to put promos in, but I did this for the first Raw and as I was going through with simming each week I didn't realsie I had to put these in. So I suppose you could put these in. But you will have to do it EVERY week. But you don't need too, to get the achievement.
  • Promo 1 = Interview Space = HBK
  • Promo 2 = Interview Space = Rey Mysterio
So that is the card set up.
  • Hit Confirm
  • (You are about to advance to the show. All Decisions Will be Locked. Proceed?) YES
  • At the bottom you now see Y Simulate All - Press your Y button.
  • "Simulate results for all matches" YES
So the whole card has been simmed. Wanna see whos won. To be honest, the longer you sit around seeing who won the cage or ladder match the longer this achevement will take. So lets continue on.
  • Hit confirm at the bottom of the finished card
  • This will take you back to the desk.
  • Click calender
  • As you see the day is the day after Raw (in this case the 2nd of April)
  • Click on that date
  • Skill Improvement
  • Scroll right 3 to Fan Favorite Training
  • Click A
  • Now you see you have plenty of choice. Pick Rey Mysterio
  • This will calculate. As you can see its a success.
  • Click A
  • This will take you back to the desk
  • Click Calender again
  • Today is Wednesday the 3rd. Click A
  • Skill Improvemnent
  • Scroll right 4 to Fan Heat Training
  • Click A
  • Now surprisingly plenty of choice again. Pick Shawn Michaels.
  • Again this will result in success. Click A to go back to the desk.
Now I am not going to repeat myself here. But you can clearly see the pattern.

Monday = Raw
Tuesday = Fan Favourite Training
Wednesday = Fan Heat Training
Thursday = Fan Favourite Training
Friday = Fan Heat Training

Simple really. So this takes us to Saturday. Scroll through to the following Monday (This case it is the 8th)
  • Click Raw Monday 8th
  • "Are you sure you want to simulate the days up to this date" YES
So as you can see in the corner it reads 2% This bar does go up gradually to start with. And if your curious is based on the facts in the "progress report" of the laptop. This lists loads and loads of things which if you check will go up. Due to the fact you card is generating 4 star matches you will easily hit 10 million cash. But don't be worried that it is going up slow. Like I said I got this ahceivement by Week 2 January. So let me run you through this Raw and I will give you another tip I didn't realise that might help you get it quicker than I did.
  • Click Today (Raw 8th)
  • As you can see your matchups are already set up from last week. It is a complete re-run! (apart from the promos which you can add in if you want)
  • So click confirm at the bottom
  • "You are about to advance to the show. All decisions will be locked. Proceed?" YES
  • Again hit the simulate Y button
  • "simulate results for all matches?" YES
  • Matches are simmed. Confim at the bottom to finish the Raw Event
  • Back to the GM desk.
Now here we repeat the Skill Improvement steps again. Its that Simple. So continue this all the way through and you will get the achievement easily in no time!

As you can see from the fan support Raw is already up by 200,000. You will have PPV's were you do lose some, but just keep at it and your bar at the top like mine will go from 66% to 94% in one month!

So how else can you help yourself out getting more percentage. Below is what I did.

First thing I used was when it came to the PPV. You will have the same set up as Raw. Change the main event to Hell In A Cell. 5 Star easy!

Second - Rivalry's - These are on the GM desk under magazines. Click on these and it is easy to see. The first one I used was "Legend Killer" I put this on for 13 weeks (As you may see there is a mark for this in the Progress Report) Let it go and then start another. By the time I got the the other one though I had enough money to buy another.
You can buy more from the storyline writers which is in the same menu as rivalrys. I picked Chirs Folino who has the undisputed Champion. It works well when you have two people in your brand both with a title! and is also a 5 star story!

So I hope this helps all you folks. Again thanks goes to Matt_Geez2003uk for finding this method works. Simonizer for unlocking it first and letting us know it works. And help needed post below. I am sure between me and Matt we can help.

Djen 11-10-2007 08:35 PM

MattyHustedUk 11-10-2007 08:46 PM

got it at the backlash after mania

Chpainkiller 11-10-2007 08:48 PM

I ask is it normal that I have a 0.5 Rating in a PPV?

Little Lee 11-10-2007 09:02 PM

how many fans do you have? What rating for Raw?

I managed to get an 2.5 for cyber sunday I think.

xJACKASS 11-10-2007 09:03 PM

KrisYeager 11-10-2007 09:10 PM

Are you checking that all the matches are filled out properly in the ppv's? because i had to sort matches out when it was cross brand ppv's.

Little Lee the guide is spot on couldn't have done it better myself.

Chpainkiller 11-10-2007 09:18 PM

at the moment I only get 1 Star Ratings and I have 148000 watchers only help:(

matt_geez2003uk 11-10-2007 09:20 PM

if you are following the guide to the letter there shouldn't be a problem. what popularity have your 2 superstars got?

Chpainkiller 11-10-2007 09:21 PM

49 and 32 ......

matt_geez2003uk 11-10-2007 09:23 PM

are you doing the skill improvements and are you making sure the matchcard is correct each week (re run definitely working)

Chpainkiller 11-10-2007 09:25 PM

yes the skill Improvments are full HBK 100 heat and Rey 100 Crowd fan I stopped with it after I had the 100 each and yes the card is always full!

matt_geez2003uk 11-10-2007 09:29 PM

I don't know then, only thing i can suggest is starting from the beginning again as getting popularity up will be a hell of a task.
Sorry i can't help more but all i have ever done is what is in the guide and i never had to deal with superstars having low popularity.

Chpainkiller 11-10-2007 09:33 PM

I dont know I have a Save that is after 5 weeks and I have both over 90 but what I now can do that this stats not fall down because after every Raw its like somebody has 78 and the other over 90.....

matt_geez2003uk 11-10-2007 09:41 PM

try changin it so that you have 2 cage matches on your card as if i remember correctly Rey's speciality match is the cage match

Chpainkiller 11-10-2007 09:47 PM

Rey special is Hardcore match for me I hope this helps but I dont make it today because its pissing me off
thx for help

DONK 11-10-2007 10:52 PM

Big thanks for that guide :woop:

Just helped me get the achy in under a hour.

Galokin 11-11-2007 01:08 AM

dude, this should be some great help!
Ive never really attempted the GM mode in this or last years game...seemed to boring to me lol.

But this guide looks cool so will prolly attempt in the morrow.

xJACKASS 11-11-2007 05:27 AM

It worked great for me got mine at the end december. I also turned off the morale b/c they started bitching they wanted more money.

Chpainkiller 11-11-2007 10:34 AM

this Bullshit! I got two years in a Row the GM of the Year Trophy and I have 100% But no Achievment! Played it on legend
Edit: Now Three years In the Row! Dam

Georgekoog7 11-11-2007 11:19 AM

Its Works! Thanks Guys!

Chpainkiller 11-11-2007 11:26 AM

maybe I dont get the achievment because at 83% it came a cut scene with vince and then I came in the main Menu but I continued the 24/7 mode

MattyHustedUk 11-11-2007 11:47 AM

as long as you get the gm of the year award and get to 100 after your ok

Chpainkiller 11-11-2007 11:53 AM

yeah ok but now I got 5(!) time in a row the Gm of the year award and no achievment

Galokin 11-11-2007 12:32 PM

hmmm got up to June 12th and then HBK has vanished from my roster!
How do i get him back? cant see newhere in the menus that allows purchases or anything....d'oh!

Appears he has gone to ECW :(

Nitronix360 11-11-2007 01:25 PM

It worked for me. But i did it sligtly different i noticed that their popularity was falling so after i had maxed out there stats for fan favourite and fan heat i used the days the show wasnt on to do charity events to boost their popularity.

matt_geez2003uk 11-11-2007 01:34 PM

Just a quicky guys don't know what difference it makes but, my friend has just got this achievement doing it on easy until they hit 80% then changing to legend so it would appear as long as you are on legend difficulty when you hit 100% you still get the achievement.
