If you haven't noticed, you joined a site built around getting achievements the quickest and easiest way, so seeing as you joined then that makes you just as pathetic and more so more pointing it out. Good job.

and dethklok, are you f'ing serious. You boost for achievements and are asking for help to boost right in your sig... how is that any different? Quit being a hypocrite and "just do it for real."

You try to help other people out and get called pathetic. Awesome.

Can verify that for 2012 the correct day to gain Committed achievement is Saturday midnight to Sunday

It doesn't matter what day you do it on. Just keep switching back and forth until the achievement pops. It takes quite a bit of time though so if you're trying to get it in one night expect to be there for about an hour (depending on how fast you dashboard it and switch time zones etc.)

Day / Time confirmation for 2012?

I've been trying this for about an two hours now on Saturday afternoon (CST 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm) and it's not unlocking. Do I have to do this early early in the morning or what days/times should I be going for this?

Thanks..
DaS

If somebody still needs a hint when to do this in the year 2012, I started doing this at 8 PM local time on GMT +2 zone Friday (Finland), and it unlocked in 10 minutes. Switching between Friday and Saturday.

Just look at this map and work out the time difference with it so that you know when to do it. My zone is the +2 in the map and it's not hard to figure your correct time with the map.

I Can Confirm that it is working for Friday and Saturday. Also if you go straight to system settings from the game you can get it quicker. Got the Obsessive achievement a little later also.

Wondered if someone could help? I've been doing this time zone trick and got the 'focused' achievement. How long did it take you guys to get it. I've been at this for 45 mins so far.

Ok, just reading the start of the forum. To get 'Commited' it has to be a Tuesday and switch back to a Monday and then back to Tuesday. 10-12 times and it's done. I'll try it next week.

So, I started doing this on 09/10/12 (Monday) at around 9:30 PST, and within 5 loads switching from the two furthest time zones, I unlocked the Focused achievement. The next morning, I did about 25 more and got the Obsessed achievement. The Committed achievement has still not popped for me, sadly. Going to keep trying throughout the week, but I believe I have to do it between Saturday and Sunday. I'll post later with my results.

Thank you, I have just tried this and I got the achievement with just 3-4 times

Unfortunately I haven't got obsessed I tried 30-35 times :\
This is a little strange, I got the first achievements (7 days) the first time!

Do you know if attempts are cumulative? Maybe next week I'll try again.

I'm not sure if they are cumulative or not, but it should only take about 60 loads MAX before the achievement pops. I had the Obsessed achievement pop well before I got the Committed one.

Hi, I tried this an hour ago - gor FOCUS and OBSESSIVE, both within about 40 minutes. I can't get COMMITTED tho and I'm sick of rebooting the game! :/ I tried going straight to the system settings from the game menu to make it quicker and since then I started getting occasional system messages upon booting about the game being recently played on a different console... wtf? Anyone got that message too? Hope that doesn't reset the counter...

Hello all. To let anybody know I got this chievo's on 9/18/12. I started to do the time zone trick at about 4:00 pm (PST California) on a Tuesday and it took about 1 1/2 to do. So it still works!!

The best advice which I've been giving is to keep trying every day for a 7 day period and you should hopefully get it.

I went straight to system settings from in-game Xbox button also, and it worked. Did the timezone trick to finish out Obsessive on a Tuesday morning at 1amCST, flipping between GMT+14 and GMT-12, and it worked.

Thanks all.
