Trouble with Road Dog achievement

I have played a set in every venue, as the achievement description says. I was thinking that I have to play a setlist with multiple songs (that isn't a make a setlist maybe?) to get it. Can anyone fill me in if I am missing something?

That's weird. You should double check and make sure you have at least a star in every venue. I've had plenty of venues with just a 5 star cuz of one song but when i finshed my final venue it unlocked so idk. Not trying to patronize you but every venue doesn't mean every city it is every place you can possibly play at.

yep, went through all of them. Double checked and all. I'll go through and play multi song setlists and see if it does anything.

Are you sure you're not confusing "venue" and "City"? We've had a few people who turned out to have only played one gig per city. Also, make sure you've unlocked all the cities in the game to begin with (I.E. you have access to The Endless Setlist 2).

Yep, I'm aware of the possible confusion between city and venue. I have gone to every single venue and have stars in them. I'm still working on playing multi song setlists to see if the game is picky like that. There are a few venues where I have only played single song setlists so I am just guessing and checking.

Did you unlock the world promoter? That will show every venue you can possibly play.

You also need to make sure that you are signed in on the controller you are using for it to count. Last time this happened there was a guy who was playing on controller 2, but controller 1 was signed into his live account so he did not get credit for the venues played then.

Alright stay with me because this might be a little confusing but here is pretty much the only plausible explanation at this point.

Did you work on your band while playing by yourself, but use multiple instruments? Additionally were those instruments connected at the same time as others. What i mean by this is at any point did you say turn on your box with your guitar (thus having your profile signed into the guitar controller) and plug in your drums at the same time? Did you then continue to start your tour just playing the guitar by yourself and then later switch to the drums without turning off the guitar? (now substitute any combination of instruments you may have used) If you did this RB2 works in a funny way as that it actually allows you to switch to another instrument and play the tour w/o signing in.

The problem with this is that it does not track what you are doing while playing that other instrument that is in the "Player 2" slot. Many people have had trouble with 100% ______ instrument achievements because of this. It sounds like this may have happened to you with your Road Dog ach. Only way to fix this really is to start a new band, that is unless you have a memory like a hawk.

you may be on to something here, but I am fairly sure I didn't do this at any point. If I replay each venue, do you think I'd be able to get it?

Yep. But you may want to make a list and check them off one at a time so you don't miss one.

of course, theres no reason why you wouldnt, however i would still reccomend making a new band, it will obviously be easier to track progress. plus you will always remember "oh, thats the band im playing _______ only...."

So I think I made a mistake with the controller assignments and missed my chance at this achievement as well. Instead of starting over, can I just play another song from a venue and the game will give me the achievement then?

If you remember which venue you are missing, that should work.

Would this also stop the "Worldwide Sensation" from unlocking? Because I have every venue unlocked and I never got it... Well I'm assuming that I unlocked everything... but there is a city below Istanbul that doesn't have a name over it... Is that also another city? Oh well, frustrating... well not as frustrating as MKvs.DC Kombo Challenge... but still...

That one is slightly misleading as you actually need to do the 5 song set to get the "World Promoter" to unlock it.

I played a set as player 2, but caught myself doing it, and replayed in the venue as my gamertag

It's possible that you may have been playing on an instrument that wasn't properly signed on as your profile when you unlocked the world promoter.

Not trying to spam an old topic but I'm having trouble with Road Dog too. I played part of the tour over Xbox Live with a friend and part of it locally with a friend. I only have a guitar so I know it's not a multiple instument issue. Would doing part of it co-op affect this one?
