Lightbulb Professor Portal Online achievement

Professor Portal 75
After completing co-op, complete Calibration Course online with a friend who hasn’t played before

"Calibration Course" is the first co-op tutorial level. That means getting this achievement requires three players:
  1. Player 1: You, who are getting the achievement. You play the entire co-op game with Player 2.
  2. Player 2: Your friend who plays the entire game co-op with you.
  3. Player 3: Your friend who did not play the game co-op until you were finished. The day you're done, you ask Player 3 to join your co-op game. This match must be online, not split-screen. You host a match on the calibration course, and when you're done, the Professor Portal achievement pops.
So for this achievement, you need help from 2 others, and one of them has to be patient enough that they'll wait for you to finish co-op before THEY start co-op. Also, neither of them get the achievement using the model I described, meaning a fourth player would have to join Player 2 for them to get the achievement. It's like a really annoying pyramid scheme.

The alternative solution is substituting Player 3 in the above example with a dummy Gold account. If you and Player 2 both have dummy accounts, you can get each other the achievement with only 2 people.

Either way, it's a bit of work, requiring either 3 people or dummy accounts. A surprisingly dumb achievement from the people who brought us The Orange Box, which IMO is the best achievement list ever created.

Please use this thread either to offer your online cherry to others so they can get the achievement or to look for players whose online cherry you can pop.

REMEMBER: Both the player getting the achievement and the person who has never played before MUST BE ON EACH OTHER'S FRIENDS LIST BEFORE STARTING THE GAME.

I'd be willing to create a dummy gold account if someone did the same for me.. only takes a few minutes to set up and should be easy to trade. I wouldn't worry about this achievement too much. I think we'll be able to play at our own pace and when people are ready find someone to trade with.

In case anyone doesn't know.. you get a free month gold for each new gamertag with a unique email address.

Wow, the only sensible way to do this is with a created account. It says "hasnt played before" does that mean Portal at all or just Co-op?

Let's hope you can backup, then delete your savefile to boost this achievement!
I'd be happy to add my name to an 'achievement trading thread' once this game is out and we're all happy about how to unlock the achievement. I've got a couple of HDs and MCs for such a purpose! I have 4 TF2 savefiles, each with 500hrs of PYRO data on them!

I'll be playing PORTAL2 24/7 anyway, so helping our little community out will be a bonus!

Oh for sure, this'll be the first time since joining this site that I can actually use it.

I will definately be up to doing this when the game comes out. I'm pretty sure I have about 5 dummy accounts.

I choose to believe this requires someone who has never played a video game at all. You will need someone with a unique serial number on their console as that is what they'll be using to check authenticity.

So, if your pal plans on buying a used or refurbished console for this one, you can forget using them for this achievement!

You guys realize that this doesn't say your partner need gold or I has to be online right? You could probably just make an account in 2 minutes and play through it. Duh guys >.>

Wrong, it's true that you can get a free month when creating a new GT on your console, BUT this is limited to 3 months per Xbox

I need professor portal, just need a spare trial code. I've got another account set up for it already.

EDIT: Used a trial code so got a 48 hour spare account right now. But I need you to have a spare account for me to get it.

everyone should calm down. i'm sure you can just move your save to a memory card, like the post says. that's what i figured when i saw the achievement. moving your save onto a memory card or usb device and removing it will allow you to play as if you haven't before, because no save data will be on your xbox hd. thus, tricking your xbox into thinking you have never played before. DING! ACHIEVEMENT!
