I have a link to the map Joystiq made with all items listed, and not just '?' marks, but letters to signify what pickup is what. It's in the guide.

You say the Pulse Gun/Intertial Element is missable, but then you say you need to pick it up. Can you clarify?

Reaching those levels will allow you to gain infinite ammo for those weapons throughout your entire Shadow Complex career. You just need to get the item in the game to enable the infinite ammo.


[EDIT] Oh, and I'm nearly out of room for my guide. I've had to slim down MANY achievements on the second post, so if it looks like I omitted some crucial info, let me know and I'll try to edit it accordingly.

I got all 30 grenade upgrades before I did the final boss fight. Dont exactly know how I did it, but you can do it.

Why does everyone say you can only get the final grenade expansion once you start the final boss fight? When I went through to get 100% it was to the left of the house on the lake. (I had just gotten the scuba mask so I could just swim down and get it.) I got 100% before I even got to the boss so now I can just run around anywhere I want exept for the exploding room.

Seeing as the grenade expansion shows up during the fight, I figured the expansion was hiding underneath the airship. I'll update. Thank you so much.

Thanks.

I believe I have everything for this guide, so I'm considering this finished, and I'm submitting it to be "The Guide" for the game.

It's missable because if you don't pick it up before you go down to the room that explodes on you there is no way of getting back in that area to get it. I finished the game with 99% items and had to start a new game because I couldn't get back in that area. Not really that big of deal since you have to play the game multiple times anyways to get everything, just trying to let others know about it.

Gotcha.

Well, just letting everyone know, I submitted both the Road Map and Achievement Guide off for approval, and, if everything goes accordingly, it'll be up on the site shortly.

And please, rate my guide appropriately. I know this guide doesn't deserve a 1/5 stars, and I have a pretty good idea who gave it the only rating...

Something about that exploding room you should note:

Yea, I actually noticed that. But I really don't understand what the big problem is. The game points you to the Inertial Element before sending you downstairs to the dome room. I even got all the squares in that room uncovered before heading out while it was exploding.

Nice. Thanks.

So far, it's been roughly 4 days, and I'm starting to get worried. Their thread for submissions say "if we don't accept it, we won't let you know," which pretty much sucks.

Anyone - who has submitted a guide and has had it published - know what the "normal" waiting period is? I don't want to jump the gun and post it it again, or even give it another go-over and make any possible revisions when I might not need to.

[EDIT] Added another YouTube video (my own) that adds onto the XP trick, and takes your multiplier to the MAX (10x). Hello achievement!

It just occurred to me that the Walkin' on Water achievement IS missable; if it's not obtained before the game points you to the final boss fight, you will have to start all over again!!

I've updated the guide to reflect this.

Perhaps this will help you a lot more. It's the interactive Shadow Complex map.

It's been very helpful for myself.

Some people didn't use the blue line/item indicator. Without it that item is easily missable.

Sheesh, why did I have to go all the way to page 3 to get the decent roadmap/achievement guide for this game? This really should be up top. If the original author reads this, he should PM a mod and ask that this be stickied.
