Other than that, it looks like a solid guide.

The few instances where we have conflicting "best solutions" I will need to sift through the material again and find out which one is the "best."

Like I said, it's good that you are trying out new ways to write a guide.

Exactly the point I was trying to make. It was worth a shot.

Technically, if the author of any guide is open to suggestions and discussions in a guide thread and actually takes said suggestions, doesn't that really make it a community guide despite being only one author? But then again, you have guide authors who say "this is my guide, take it or leave it".

I know I always put it out there in the post after my guide is posted for people to offer suggestions, corrections and changes if they feel any are needed. I've used suggestions and made changes before and I certainly wouldn't hesitate to do it again. It's the site's guide after all, created for the community, so why not value the communities input?

Heck yeah. I know I won't attempt this community guide idea again, but for my future guides I am definitely going to go out of my way to encourage people to contribute. I just like the mixture of ideas and solutions as it lends itself to the community as a whole--something we all can strive for.

Thanks for the Achievement Guide. I know it isn't complete, but it at least helped me get 960GS on this in only two days. Works for me, I'll be trading this in.

Awesome, glad you could use the guide to grab almost all of the points. It'll be done in the coming days as I flesh out the style of roadmap I think would work best.

Alrighty, I think I'm pleased with the way the RM is set up now. Comments, questions or additions?

Don't worry about simple editing yet, I'll do a cursory run through and then will have ya'll nitpick closer to the 19th.

Remember we can't submit until the month grace period is up so we have plenty of time to work on it some more.

Alrighty ladies and gents. With just 7 days until the guide can be posted in the submission forum I would like some help proof-reading it.

I've gone through a couple of times and found some slight errors, but another set of rested eyes or two might help.

Not sure where I should put this, because quite frankly I think most people don't care. The solutions for Stay Together, Stay Safe and The Hunted Becomes the Hunter on the checklist guide are switched, most people shouldn't have a hard time figuring it out, but it is still an error.

Also something that isn't really a big deal, and will probably never change... the missable achievements line in the roadmap. "None, but you will have to replay the game if you miss something" Isn't that the EXACT definition of missable? It would be much more clear if you just put "Lots, see roadmap"

1. Fixed those errors.

2. Edited the wording.

Thanks for finding those quirks.

HEH I was looking at the 2 achievements that were switched all night since I missed them my 1st run, JUST looked at them and couldn't figure out what was different lol. Didn't expect anyone to even read my post, thanks for the quick fix. I guess I could have added great guide, it has helped me immensely to keep my time spent on this game to a minimum.... at least gameplay got better once I got ahold of the X-bow... popping walkers through the face and pulling out the arrows from the (more?) dead ones was pretty cool, especially mixing that and executions, felt kinda badass... but yeah overall, glad I just rented for 2 bucks, mostly for the points, a little to see if it was THAT terrible, cause most games aren't as bad as the rep they get.

Great guide, saved me a load of playthroughs following this. 1 question though if I'm travelling from 1 town to another, get a survivor, continue route then it skips to the cutscreen where the car is dead, and restarts the route from the beginning, does that survivor count towards the achievements. Cheers.

So long as the saving icon happened and you traveled with the survivor to at least one stop you should be credited with having traveled with that person.

If you never made it to a unique stop with the survivor then no it will not count.
