How do you pop Halfway there?

I played MBL several times and I still can't get this to pop properly. Do I have to hit exactly 500 before powering up?

Saving this for later.

play Lakeshore (1-C) at Lvl 1 as your first stage. Ignore the dragons, destroy the first 2 train cars with laser (+280), ignore the flying eyes, destroy the next train car with laser (+140), then destroy the 4 dogs that appear (+80) and enter power-up mode for the achievement. You can also use the lockshot to manage your counter value if you're close.

In version 1.1, press A to enter power up mode. I'm assuming it's the same in MBL

For some reason the button configuration is different for some modes. I believe the default for power up in MBL arcade/Xbox360 mode is X?

Either way you can go to options and configure it however you want.

Ah thanks, was wondering how to get this achievement. I've come close before, but now I know what to do.

Edit: OK, I guess I don't know what to do. I'm playing MBL Xbox 360 mode, hit 500 exactly and press 'X' to power up; girl powers up but no achievement. Have done this several times with no results.

I did it in 1.1, Arcade, and Xbox 360 modes and still didn't unlock.

I'll have to try that again, but I'm pretty sure I've tried 1.1 mode before. Also, I've read that the bug regarding achievements if voices are on is still in the game; might be worth trying again with voices off for any achievements that aren't working.

It worked, thank you!!

I turned "Voice Volume" and "SE Volume" to 0 and "BGM Volume" to 100 just for the heck of it after reading your post and it worked. Also, I was playing MBL Xbox 360 Mode.

Thanks again. I hope I don't have to play like this to unlock the other achievements. :X

Great that it worked for you! Came in to post that it worked for me as well. Luckily I was able to unlock all my other achievements without needing to turn the voice to 0, but it is a shame that the bug remains in the NA release still after how long the game has been out in Japan.

Interesting little bug there. Maybe that is why I am having a problem unlocking one of the achievements in MBL.

Having trouble getting this achievement, i've tried the sound options too and still no luck. Anyone else having this problem with the PAL version?

I think this method is probably the best...

@dirge: Have you tried that?

Yep thats the way i've being trying it. Also looks like i'm having trouble with some of the other types of achievements. Just went for the I'm Home achievement and nothing popped, i've had some of the other similar types with no probs, i'm going to check that the options are set to default now...

Yep dude, make sure everything is set to default. You shouldn't have any problem unlocking most of the cheevos

I'll have to work on 1cc ones...

A quick note that you must have game settings on default, and can only be unlocked in MBL 360/Arcade and not in MBL 1.1.

There's a Guide on this site that tells you exactly how to do it.

I'm not sure if it's ok to cut and paste from that so I'll just refer you here:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/g...iles-na/guide/

You need to be in MBL mode apparently.

Hope that helps.

Oh that's amazing.

The game just handed this to me on a plate.

I was just puttering through MBL mode to get the "Opening The Door To Hell" and "Forgotten Guardian" achievements and went on to finish the playthrough.

I got to Jitterbug and defeated him and realised I was at 500 EXACTLY!

So I sat nervously through the cut scene and when Tyrannosatan appeared I just hit A & B and poof: Achievement unlocked.

Glad I don't have to do that one the hard way.

I can't believe how stupid this is but after doing this about 10 times and didn't got it to pop I turned the sounds to zero and did it again, BAM! Did it the same exact way and this time it popped. And this was in PAL game.
