Master Speed Demon didn't unlock

I'm not exactly sure what I did... I think I went back to get the Speed Demon achievements after I realized where they were. I had one and two, and then later unlocked three, but no Master. I've been reading that you need to do them in succession on the same save, (I thought that I did, but I can't be sure), so I reloaded an old save and played through several times to try and get it to unlock. I'm positive that I was under time for every single one in at least two of my tries, but no luck.

I decided to just try and do them when I did my Master Survivalist play through, but the Master Speed Demon achievement still wouldn't unlock. (I even timed myself and was under the time posted in the achievement guide posted as a sticky).

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do? Would it be helpful to start another play through If I delete my previous saves off of my hard drive? I have my newest saves on my memory card, so that wouldn't be a big deal.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help.

Unhappy

Thanks allot for the reply Gilian. I actually started a new game today. I played all the way through to where it should unlock. I did the first one like I've read others have done, (from the first temple). I did accidentally fall down to the bottom on the second one, so I'm sure I got that one as well. I got a really good run, (well a few of them), and then after I saw your post tried your trick for the third one.... I still didn't get the Master Speed Demon achievement for some reason.

I did all of this after I deleted all of my saves off my hard drive and pulled out the memory card that I had other saves on. I can't figure out why it won't unlock, unless it has to do with the fact that I already unlocked the others without unlocking this one. I'm pretty sure that I've read that others have did it later, but other than that I don't know... A bug maybe?

Does anyone have any other suggestions? It's only 10 points, but I'd like to make it an even 1000 if possible .

Thanks allot.

I'm really sure that I did do every one with enough time. I'll try them again sometime soon, but I'm kind of burned out with playing those same levels over and over again .

Exclamation

As unbelievable as this is probably going to sound, I swear that this just happened.

I've been re-playing through these levels, from where you do the first Speed Demon challenge, straight through to the last, (where the Master Speed Demon achievement should unlock). Over and over and over I've been doing this with no luck. I've gotten pretty good at doing this, and I've been positive that I've made time the last bunch of runs for sure.

I get to the end once again where it should unlock, but yet again... nothing. So just for the hell of it, I backtrack to the beginning of run three... I'm going to just try it again without reloading, but when I get to the beginning of it, I decide to go back up to the very beginning, as far up I can go.

I go all the way up the spiral, back through the tunnel, and I'm just looking around for a bit. I high tail it back down to see if I can do two and three together... not thinking anything will happen, but I'm pretty sick of doing these runs.

I die the first time from a stupid mistake, falling all the way to the bottom, but it puts me back up to the beginning at the top again. I try again, going as fast as I can... making all my turns pretty good, (I slammed into a block though, but backed up and kept going), all the way to the bottom. Before I can go through the doors where run three would start, I hear the unlocked achievement sound... What? Master Speed Demon... 10 points... Wow... It's finally done.

It's crazy, but if anyone else is having trouble getting that one to unlock, try it and see what happens. Finally... 1000/1000!

Yeah I will thanks for the reply. Ya know what's really funny, I tried to reset the timer on top of the spiral by simply driving over the edge with the bike. Guess what, Lara fell and screamed and fell and landed right at the bottom in front of the gate, survived (EASY) and the cut-scene triggered. What kind of nonsense is this??? Anywayz, achievement not yet unlocked. To be continued.


EDIT: GOT IT. The achievement guide method is the best way to do it.

Didn't read this thru prior to trying, did the spiral, got achieve and figured reload to get to top easily to get secret, did same for maze following and of course got 2 single achievements and lost ability to tell whether any retries of these two were successful

In the end I ran the spiral a couple of times for good measure then zipped thru maze again and it popped thankfully.

The achievement could have done with being worded better as I can imagine a fair few people getting annoyed with this who don't browse this forum. The swan dive refers to one playthru ("adventure").
