For Pinball Wizard, does anyone who doesn't have it unlocked want to test to see if it works on "Song of the Century" by Green Day?

One track vocal song and while running pinball with jackpot or 2x and flame notes you'll easily get a score in 660k, but I'm curious if the pinball achievement can get unlocked on top of it.

Whilst I don't have the song to try it for you, I read on the RB.com forums that the achievement unlocks once the pinball is dropped and so cannot be unlocked on a one-track song that will never drop it. It is very easily unlocked on Bob Marley's Redemption Song though, which only has guitar and vocals.

One-track songs will drop the pinball though. I just tried it on Song of the Century and the pinball alone racked up about 600,000 points. I already have the achievement so I don't know if it would unlock, but I can't see why it wouldn't.

Fair enough, this was the post I had read (turns out it was Scorehero, not RB.com):

The pinball trophy pops when your pinball drops. That's why you can't get it on a one track song; the ball never drops.

Ah, but that's the key in what Didi is saying. The track hits the end tag before the pinball can fall off the screen, so the game doesn't know when to calculate the total amount of time the pinball was in play.

Thanks for researching that, Didi.

Still a good way to get a quick gold star score, though.

Oh ok, when he said the pinball dropped I just took that to mean when it first appears, not when it leaves the screen. That would make sense then.

Just a little heads up for any DLC achievements, you need to keep all the songs on your hard drive for them to count for the totals even if you've played them.

I was deleting songs as I finished them thinking it was okay (and since I'm low on HDD space) and was wondering why the 50 songs in a genre achievement wasn't popping. I ended up redownloading enough songs again to hit 50 and played one and it popped.

It's most likely there's a xml script that keep tracks of what songs have been completed (and registered as such) to the server. Removing songs from the HDD would void any finished songs as being 'completed' unless they remain intact.

I'll add this to the guide as a precaution to anyone with a 20GB HDD or just anyone with low disc space in general.

As for the Gold Star guide, I'm waiting to see what can be done about it being recreated before I change the description.

Also, to clarify as discussed above, the Pinball Whiz achievement will only unlock after the pinball has fallen off the highway, one track songs will not work.

For Good as Gold, look for a free track in the store by Stephen Colbert. Play it and use the pinball powerup. Juggle the pinball properly and you'll get that and Pinball Whiz in one shot.

I got a better one: Moonlight sonata, pinball, super keys, jackpot

Can you say 30+ million in one song?

Maybe it would be advantageous to link the Precious Medal guide? http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=385860

Guide linked in description, I also changed the wording I had before to remove some things that wouldn't work so well.

Also, not yet confirmed but as a precaution, I changed the 'Blitzed Out' achievement to online only. I think that's pretty much everything done, I'll request for a pin soon. For anything that may need more info, suggest it and I'll see what can be done.

For DLC songs, as much as they may help with certain achievements, for the benefit of keeping the core achievements connected to the Blitz songs, I won't be adding those as suggestions, but anyone with those songs are welcome to try them for Pinball Whiz and Good as Gold.

Absolutely. Sounds fine enough.

After all, we don't want people buying songs to get a achievements.

It's more that, you shouldn't have to buy DLC you don't want to get other achievements that can be obtained with any other song already in Blitz. I got Pinball Whiz without using any DLC songs, as an example.

On top of that, not everyone will have 300 songs to get that far into the DLC achievements. I'd like to try and keep them seperate when possible, unless it's free... in which case anything goes.

as long as the DLC was first loaded onto your HDD (not on another xbox), this should work

And if that was the case, you really need to do a license transfer to that Xbox so that you can play the songs offline (you know, like in RB3 or something, smarties), anyway, and in addition to making it no problem for your friend to log on and get it done. Of course, maybe being logged on a second controller while your friend plays on first would do the trick, too.

Does the DLC 100 have a specific name?
Asking because I'm creating a thread for the Maximum Clubs.

It's specified as DLC, they could be sorted as 'Online' but I felt that separating them was a better choice. 400G for the core game, with the extra 100G. All the related achievements are here.

Also, no problem!

Thanks for the reply. You've been a big help

Let me know when this guide is all ready to be published (and it's been a month since the game's release) and myself or another Guide Team member will get it up on the front site for ya.

Cheers! & thanks again!

Does anyone know if you have to actually play the songs to get the 300 unique? Can I just jukebox it and let the songs play in the background? It is 0 stars earned, but still played I guess?

This should work. However, you'd be losing the double coin bonus in the process. I would suggest getting enough coins, working on the gold stars for the Blitz songs, and then running idle through anything else.

It'd be one thing to jukebox it with a turbo controller* if you could set up playlists.

No playlists in RBB, so you still have to babysit it per song. Might as well play, even if you're half-assing it.



*Let me clarify this before I get any "huh, what?" At my store on weekends, I'll set up RB3 on performance mode, no fail mode, vocals with mic amplification turned off with a Hori EX2 kicked on turbo to press "A" over and over.

Why do this? Because with my 670+ songs it then becomes a giant jukebox for the in-store that I'm not having to press "A" over and over again to proceed to the next random song. As a result, some unplayed have "0" scores, but I'll get to them eventually.

In addition to that, we have ourselves (the employees) represented as the in-game avatars in RB3, so that's pretty neat to have that going on in the background.

Yes I can second this. I looked at the sale items, sorted by decade and saw Ooby Dooby under the 1950s, bought and played it but no achievement because it's classed as 1987 from some compilation album release.

What a load of bollocks. May have only been 80msp but I still feel cheated.

It's listed 50s in the store, but 80s in the library.

That's pretty messed up.

What's super annoying is that Harmonix makes exceptions to this, anyway, because for the Jimmy Buffett tracks, he came in to play and add material and the pack was called a re-record. 2008 is when he did it, but if I'm not mistaken it has original release dates for the songs. I'll go double check.

Yeah, same with Motorhead's "Ace Of Spades 08". Obviously it's the 2008 re-record but it's still listed as the original release of 1980 (or thereabouts) on the library.
