FIRST OFF U NEED TO HAVE A SPARE USB WITH NO DATA OF DEAD ISLAND ON IF THERE IS DELETE IT OR PUT IT ON ANOTHER USB..

1-delete CACHE FROM HARD DRIVE AND USB MEMORY UNIT
2-mOVE PROFILE AND SAVE ONTO USB MEMORY UNIT
3-LOAD GAME BUT DONT ACCEPT UPDATE THEN BEFORE THE PRESS START SCREEN PULL OUT USB STICK
4- START NEW GAME WHILE HIGHLIGHTING CHARACTER PUT USB BACK IN AND START GAME
5- ALL PROGRESS SHOULD NOW BE RESET
6 - QUIT GAME,, CONNECT TO LIVE... NOW FOR ME ALL THE ACHIEVEMENT PROGRESS CAME BACK ACCEPT LOCATIONS VOILA TRY AND GET ACHIEVEMENT NOW GOOD LUCK ...

BY THE WAY I GOT THIS TRICK FROM THE ARMY OF TWO 40TH DAY DLC GLITCH VERY SIMILAR JUST TRYED TO SEE IF IT WOULD WORK N IT DID...

oNLY DOWNSIDE U HAVE TO START CAMPAIGN OVER BUT U CAN USE YOU LEVEL 50 R WATEVER LV U R,, BUT IM SURE MOST OF U GUYS WOULDN'T MIND I KNOW I DONT

Not that I doubt you but can we get another conformation of this working?

I would LOVE for this to work and would have no issue doing this after I finish up my level 50 achievement.

Uhm. Every progress came back EXCEPT for There and back again?
That doesn't make sense. He'll delete the Loot-cheevo status as well, right?

Is there any way to back up with three devices? Say I back up my HDD to Memory Stick 1. Then Move the file from the HDD to Memory Stick 2 and do this procedure. If I then load up Memory Stick 1 again, will I still have my other in progress achievements?

I would hardly call this a solution. I think I'd rather die than have to find all the locations again due to the patch and techland being incompetent.

It's just like a new playthrough. And seriously, it doesn't take that long to beat the game imo.

Once I'm finished with RTL, I'll attempt this.

Yeah, not to be negative but I'm just not interested in doing a third playthrough because of stupidity on their part. But the good news is with this patch finding orange weapons is supposed to be much easier.

Really? Cool.
But they also put up that FUCKING annoying recovering time after dying to 7 seconds. What dicks.

Can you use a 512mb memory card to do this instead of a usb memory stick?

The true horror in dead island aren't the zombies but the developers and their patches haha.

Think I'll wait 28 days and pray for a patch (well 21, but really 28 post crap)

Or maybe someone will figure out that rediscovering. Your last location will unlock it. Fingers crossed.

Wasn't that due to the fact that when you drop in coop your team mates would rarely get to you in time? Not that the fact you respawn 2 feet away with full health is a bad thing.

Should have had a Press B to release immediately option imo.

I can confirm also if you follow it step by step it will only reset the ones you do not have the achievement for. For me just reset the locations, but I'm still confused does anybody no the 72nd location because when I loaded my game it just gave it to me but still have no idea which one it is.

i think they forgot to add a 72nd location so they just give u one free to fix it not finkin it wud stop u gettin the cheeve if u have 71 already you fort they would of made it so u at least had to go to some place to get 72 that way it wudnt of glitched pffft another patch soon i guess

So you can confirm that this works without a chance of restarting progress towards level 50? We can keep our characters and weapons? I might wait for a patch and if it dosnt come in a few weeks il try it. I also want to know if finding the glitched location again might unlock it.

It will restart you from the beginning but you will still have your character and everything you had with it you will just have to play starting from chapter 1. And you will not be able to reload any chapter.

What if you have a separate save in Chapter 14 stored on another memory card? If you do this, it won't let you load that save?

You must play solo, cuz more time is a good thing for co-op play.

I just got this Achievement... by going into the "Jungle Village" in Act III.

In case anyone missed this place (I did on my first playthrough) It's in the northern area of the Jungle Map with two work benches at each end of the village.

What exactly needs to be moved to the flashdrive? Just the 300KB of game saves with all 4 characters and the dlc ripper mod? I sont care about story progress because i still need to reach level 50 and play the game at least one more time to do so.

Move your save and your gamer tag to a memory unit(usb drive or 250mb MU)

You got it because you did NOT have 72/72, right (after updated)?

Yeah. I was only at 69/72 after my first playthrough. Got it my second time around.
