Any body know a good alternative to the Hori Pad ex2? Amazon is sold out and wanting to find something that will work as well. I know Wal-Mart and Gamestop sell a wireless turbo controller but I bought one for my son and it seemed like a piece of sh*t. Any help would be appreciated.

System link is fine, you'll need 4 accounts though (3 can be made up on the spot, no need to connect them to Live).

So I've been doing this method on and off for the last day or 2. Been working great. And I don't want to alarm anyone in case it's just glitchy ribbon notification which we all know is prevalent in horde but I'm not getting any recon notifications anymore. Not sure if they hotfixxed this or if it's just not telling me I got them.

Can anyone confirm positive or negative? I would myself but I have to run to work. Leaving it running anyways to test. Hope it's still doable I'm stupid close to my second reup!

If you boost it for a while, then finish and go back to menu, to 'save' your progress, if you go back into horde before you reboot your 360, you'll not see the ribbons, but you do still earn them and get the XP

Have you tried trading smokes for nades? It's a pretty quick and clean exchange. Donno how much faster it is but I like it because the nades/smokes stay put after being dropped. They don't go flying everywhere like the rifles do.

edit: It's like 10 ribbons every 33 seconds or so.

They reduced the amount of XP earned, not the amount of XP needed. However, for this, I don't believe clearing your cache will change the amount of XP earned from the ribbon.

Hey,

To all Australians I use the Datel Wildfire Evo LCD Controller for this method and it works like a treat. I left it on last night for about 9 hours with 2 xboxs and got 2.8 Million XP. If you live in Australia this is the cheapest place to buy the controller: http://www.ozgameshop.com/xbox-360-a...black-xbox-360

Have to say this method is flawless once you finally get your pad sorted. I have Spotter now set to button Y so its easy to weigh it down (Im using a hammer lmao).

Gone from Red 13 to Red 85 in 18 hours. Plus it gives me chance to catch up on some movies and TV shows I have missed thru grinding FIFA12.

Although the multiple XBOX will make this faster, its really not needed, you can go from 1 - 100 in a couple of days, I have 3 consoles but cant be arsed, its just not worth the hassle. 1 Console is fast enough for me.

Thank you for this method. I ran it last night for 9 hours or there about with 2 consoles and a Datel Wild Fire 2 Controller. I am not sure why anyone wants to spend twice as much on the Hori Pad, since the datel even has Macro abilities and on the fly button remappings... but whatever.

I came out with 19,164 ribbons. I was making coffee when I saw the flashes reflect in the glass of my microwave. I turned around JUST in time to watch a grub kill everyone. Was kind of funny really.

Started on same wave, won, and went to main menu to collect my loot. a bit over 3 mil XP from a single night. Thank you so much for this. This is infinitely better than any other method posted.

Of note: The max ribbons looks to be 999,999 and the max medal count looks to be 999. As proof of what the game will allow : (EDIT - removed the link and vid since the clown is advertising something you DONT want to download. Needless to say, a search on you tube for gears unlocks could help, but again, DO NOT DOWNLOAD ANYTHING)

Now keep in mind, this is what the game will allow on those screens. The actual max amounts as defined by XP or some other counter that isn't set high enough may stop these short as many saw with KoC

The Datel Turbo Fire 2 is easy as cake to setup. I beleive the UK version is called the Wild Fire 2. I know someone posted problems, but I had none. It programmed in all of 3 minutes (had to read setting options) and was spotting up a storm in 5.

Thanks for this method it works great but i was a little bit shocked after i waked up this morning. Maybe someone can explain me this:

My Party Type was Invite Only so no one could join me but after 9 hours 16 minutes of idling my 2nd player was dead. I failed Wave 1. Now i'm asking me why this happened.

After restarting from current wave and beating it i got my xp (almost 1m) so i'm happy but i would like to know if there is an invisible countdown or something. Anyone else experienced this?

Considering the Datel isn ot on back order andcan be purchased for less at your local wal-mart or elsewhere online... AND it does the same things... I would go with the Datel.

I own the first Hori Pad EX as well as the Datel.

The Wildfire 2 is so easy to remap with, you simply hook up to a PC and use the customizer app it takes less than 2 mins. The problem with the Wildfire is when using this method, it tells me my batteries are draining after 5 hours, but they are actually not, its like the pad malfunctions, but it still works 100%...weird little glitch. Also to add, although this pad, as mentioned above, does have Macros ability, it is very very basic, and very limited, you can't add your own Macros, and the selection of games is so small, and the games that are listed don't have all useful options.

Datel, is and always has been a shit company, the devices and hardware they push out is pure crap, even the Wildfire 2 is awful, but it does the trick for this method, and has turbo.

If your a bit crazy and have nothing else to spend your cash on, you could bypass the overhyped HORI EX2 and buy the Viking 360 Macros Controller. Its the best XBOX 360 Controller on the market by a landslide, but costs about 300.

That thing is awesome. You can basically make it play a game for you.
