You don't have to do it in one go, just make sure you save at 999 so you can reload if it doesn't give you it.
I'm going to try the exploit this weekend. Thanks!

I doubt Ill leave my Xbox on for 19+ hours in one sitting however. One question, I'm a little confused on how to exit the glitch and save your 1000 mile progress. Save first by turning the subtitles on/off? Could you explain?

I'm currently doing the glitch, super easy and I crashed thru the storefront on the first try!

Again, can I just exit the vehicle with "Y" to save my miles traveled progress? How do I ensure I don't lose those miles?

4 hours later I got the million point cheevo and had around 150 miles driven. Do I want to leave my Xbox on for roughly 16 more hours for this 1000 miles cheevo? Hmmmm.

thanks for this tip guys - finally finished the 1500... jimmy really wasn't my favorite, but at least this made the experience a little more bearable.

It saves the game when you change the subtitles on or off in the menu.

Back to the topic, this glitch saved me. I'm currently using it for the Explorer achievement and it's not the best way to rack up miles, but leaving it on while I'm asleep is great. I've calculated that it racks up to about 100 miles give or take per 3 hours. In other words, it's still a 30 hour grind. I can just AFK those 30 hours. Also, I'm using the Walter Rocket if anyone is having trouble picking a vehicle.

I suggest to everyone to just use this and then do the DLC on easy mode. It will make the whole 250 very easy.

You can decide how you do the 1000 miles.

Just a word of warning for people that are going to try this: there is a setting on the 360 called "Auto Off". If it is enabled, your 360 will automatically shut off after 6 hours of inactivity. I wondered what had happened when I woke up from having the game run all night to rack up points for the Explorer achievement. I was so pissed when I saw the system was off. I thought someone had shut it off or the power had gone out for a second because of the heavy wind outside or something.

Then I found the option in the settings and it was set to Enabled. I was sleeping for seven hours too, if I had just woken up an hour earlier I still could have gotten to the system before it shut off. I guess this wouldn't happen if you have the right trigger taped down, but I didn't do it since it doesn't make the miles rack up any faster.

So just be sure that you have Auto Off set to Disabled in the system settings menu on your Xbox 360 before you attempt this for Explorer. Next time I'm going to tape my right trigger down as well, just to be safe. And as most of you probably already know, if your controller shuts off the game will pause, so you must have either a wired controller or a Play N Charge kit to try this.

Exclamation Do not pass 1000 miles with glitch

If you pass 1000 miles during glitch and game saves, you will have to do it all over again. The achievement will only unlock if you get to 1000 while physically on a street.

Thank you so much for posting this; I thought I would never get this damn achievement. And I shit you not, Bing Crosby's "I Haven't Time To Be A Millionaire" started playing seconds before and the achievement popped right when he said "millionaire". That was some amazing timing!

I am now officially done with Jimmy's Vendetta forever! I LOVED Mafia 2, but this is some of the worst DLC I've ever played.

- 1.000.000 points in City Points get Achievement Unlocked.
- 1.000.000 points in Missions get Achievement Unlocked.
- 1.000.000 points total (City Points + Missions) DON'T GET Achievement unlocked.

Okey, let's see the method...

Go to the mark on the map:

Do the same of this vid:
YouTube - Mafia 2 bug and Unlimited points Jimmy Vendeta :-)

Connect Charge and Play and come back in about 3-4h. You must have 1.000.000 points without effort and the achievement.

This method works for 1000 miles but need about 30h to get the achievement. Gas never run down with this method and miles count slowly. Good method if don't want to drive.

Hope that helps for anyone!

Worked for me thanks

Thanks for this AFK method, it worked on my first try. It's good to know I don't have to worry any more about this stupid point system and achievement! Now I just have to grind 1000 miles, what another stupid achievement.

I just bought both of the DLCs for this game and I'm using this method right off the bat after the first mission. I will update my progress as I do this.

Update 1: 1:37 PM Sunday May 22, 2011; at ~75281 total city points, getting only about 250 each time I do a "jump."

my car just keeps bouncing off the window...

Does anyone know if this has been patched? I have exactly the same car, have it totally tuned up and lining myself up the same as the vid and each time the car just bounces off the window

K it was user error, there are two shops identical on the same stretch of road a few hundred yards from each other ENSURE you have the right shop if you are struggling with this....

I was at the wrong shop, I put the video on full screen on my laptop and noticed the shop next door had a different name, about 10 shops down on the same side of the road is the correct shop.

Just like to share my experience:

20 hours of afk falling (getting 250 point "jumps") and im at 700 miles driven. So using this method you can get explorer being afk if you dont have a save anymore. Obviously if you have a save with DLC story completion you'll probably have about 300 miles driven so it'll only be a 20 hour afk boost.

Thanks to OP for sharing. Method works flawlessly

Fuck Mafia 2

Fuck 2K Games

Long live x360a
