I missed 8 people (3 ppl playing poker, 3 women upstairs in royal flush, and 2 gunmen during gas) , and got the achievement while rescueing 4 people (so there is around 8 - 11 people you can miss)

As for poker, every time Ive played I have always gotten at least one face card in my hand. I have also always had all 3 gambling books in my inventory. Not sure if there is a connection or not, but if your getting horrible cards, go get the magazines.

Wierd, they should be.

I have been hearing about a bug that can cause 1 players notebook to be switched with someone your playing co-op with though... Is it possible this is why they arent there?

Or is it possible that you killed them from too far away? (not sure if this is even possible in the small area you meet them in) For a person to be entered into your notebook you have to see their name above their head's.

Dont know if this has been posted yet. I had beat the game and gotten data miner a few days ago, then yesterday when i invited my brother to my game he received the achievement. I asked him how he got it before getting any of the others like beating it or rescuing survivors and he said he hadnt even beat the "Meet the Contestants" call yet. We figured he got it since I had it.

48 and 97 are actually there during case 6-3.

(Whilst you're taking Rebecca back to the safe house)
One of them is injured, So taking two injured people with you through the mutated zombies can be quite difficult.

(I didn't have the leadership magazine on me at the time, But i think it makes limping survivors move properly)
*Except main Storyline ones*

Yeah lots of people have had it pop for them when joining a game with someone who has it.

Now on my second playthrough so hopefully work this time. My friend also had the same problem as me with these two. Anyone else had this?

They load right after you defeat the sarge (dwight) in the underground and your taking rebecca back to the safehouse.

Outside there is a save point and a maintenance room within a gap between two "cliffs" at one end of this gap there are a couple of army SUV's.

The two guys are behind these SUV's shooting away at the undead.

When they see you they will warn you that if you have any guns on you, they will open fire. so drop all firearms beforehand.

I know you can, but Im not sure if you can find him before you get the zombrex from the pharmacy (guide says get first zombrex, not give first zombrex to katey)

I went straight to the yukatan at the start of the game and he wasnt there. I grabbed the zombrex from the pharmacy and went back and he was.

In another game I grabbed the zombrex from the pharmacy and drove to the yukatan as fast as I could and he was there.

So Im thinking his loading has something to do with grabbing the zombrex, and not what time it is. I could be wrong though.

I had some trouble getting specific survivors to spawn.

If you're only doing this to fill your Data Log and not rescue people, Make sure you kill every survivor you come across, As you can't have more than 8 out at a time.

Meaning if you have 6 survivors out, And you're waiting for a group of 3, They won't spawn.

Getting the Brains over Brawn guys to spawn is a real pain. Need to make sure nearly everyone else is gone by 3:30...

I saved everyone and I was always missionless, yet the Know When To Fold 'em mission never popped. I waited, and nothing happened. I've got to go back now and do it again I guess.

Awesome guide. Many thanks for this.

Followed it and it works perfect.

If anyone is having problems complete each 'mission' whether it be rescue survivor or kill psycho; immediately.

The tactic I use is when returning to the safehouse quickly go into Americana grab 2 broadswords and mix 2 quicksteps (wine & wine) and 2 painkillers (beer & beer or whiskey & whiskey or vodka & vodka). Keep these in your inventory and you should whiz through the missions.

Also, try and be just outside the area before the mission/call triggers. For example, if a survivor appears at 4.00am in Sports Trance; make sure that you are in Americana at around 3.50am. Then as soon as you get the call go into Royal Flush and complete the rescue.

If you need to carry or offer shoulder to a survivor you should also drink a quickstep and then carry/offer shoulder. You'll run at quickstep speed while carrying them.

Sticky?

This is amazing... been using it up to case 2 so far!!!

Just to let you know, for me the Lush-ious Lady call came after case 1.4 (around 1 ish) and Workers Compensation call never came... don't know if i did something wrong... cos the people were in the Americana anyway!!!

Thanks again... AWSOME!!!

Ok no matter what i could not get the door open to get to 104,105,106 and 110. I checked at 7:00 and every few hours after pretty much after going off to kill more surviovors and still they won't unlock the door!

Am i meant to kill all of the psycho snipers or something? I took some of them out but didnt bother with 2.

How stupid to have one door just randomly unlock.

& yes. You can still get "Hero of Fortune City" because you still get calls to help people!
