By any chance can someone post a video as far as how to go about managing the save files on Silent Hill 2? I really don't understand the explanation on the guide so this would really help. Either that or elaborate more on the process. I finished my first playthrough today and I'm wondering if I screwed something up or not.

For me, if I'm playing below hard, I don't even need to worry about saving. Just put it on beginner/easy and blast through the entire game extremely quickly (as you should remember where to go). If I'm playing on beginner/easy, I can absolutely blast through this game in under 90 minutes.

If you're playing on hard, this is how I divide my 2 saves:

1st save: near the end of the hospital, AKA save on the 3rd floor of the larger stairwell of the alternate hospital after you've acquired both rings, but before using them. You should go back near the save point to get the trick or treat box anyways. That way if you screw up the pyramid head sequence in the basement, you don't have to start too far back.

2nd save: just before the fight with Eddie. This is in the room at the exit of the labyrinth, with the 3 dug out graves, one of which being open for you to jump down. Make sure to save before jumping down, as Eddie is (for me) quite difficult on Hard.

If you don't have 2 hours at a time to sit and play a game, even on a lower difficulty, use the two saves I listed above. As far as I know, that's the two saves pretty much everybody uses in their 10* runs (with possible slight variations) I know you asked for a video walkthrough, but hopefully the heavier detail I gave is enough for you to get your achievement.

Also, hitting "continue" in the main menu counts as a save in your results screen, and that's the number the game goes by. If you only saved twice, continued once, and didn't get the achievement, that's the reason why. Simply hit "load" instead if for any reason you have to go to the main menu.

I think he's referring to getting all the endings on one save file, I can't seem to figure it out either.

I am confused on this. So I save my game, load the results screen then start a new game? Do I overwrite my results save or keep it?

Since there seems to be some confusion, I added a little bit more explanation to the guide. Basically, it doesn't matter where you save your results, as long as they are saved, you can continue on. If you don't care about easily viewing endings, I suggest just saving the results over your main file.

Say, you saved your results on slot 2 and kept slot 1 save file there. If something happened and your save slot 1 is loaded (no results page) then you hit new game, the game won't register you got that ending and it won't be in the next result screen. (if it was your 2nd playthrough, and you didn't have the old results loaded, it will say you have gotten only 1 ending)

I hope that helps. I am sorry for being an inadequate guide writer

Still a little confusing. So I save a results file after beating the game. Load that results save file, and then pick 'New Game' and it registers the first ending I got once I beat it again? The way you're saying it, it seems that the results page is supposed to show up every time I load up my new game file.

What I got from how Ceris explained it to me is as long as you have the results screen saved so for example a file for each playthrough it does not matter where you save the game as long as the results are saved.

Example:
1. Results Screen
2. New Save File (When you beat the game save the results on this file and just move down to the next save file and repeat).

Hopefully that's a correct interpretation since that's what I'm doing basically. Also Ceris it's not that your a bad guide writer your just trying to explain something that's just confusing to begin with.

Simply beat the game and save the results screen. That's all you need to do. You dont need to load the results screen, but that's a good way to check and make sure the game has all of your data. When you start a new game, save to a new slot.

i may be being over-cautious here, but this method has worked for me with little confusion.

the first time i beat the game, i saved the end results into slot 20(just so i don't accidentally overwrite it or anything). Just to be safe, i usually go to load and load up that save slot again, but i don't think that's necessary unless you have turned off your xbox or left to dashboard, and it might not be necessary at all. after loading slot 20, i select new game, main story, and then play the game for whatever new ending i'm trying to get. while in the middle of any game, if you quit or turn off your xbox, you can just hit continue to carry on. at the end of game 2, i save the end results over my slot 20, go to load and load slot 20 again because i'm paranoid, select new game, play through, etc.

i always save the end results into slot 20, and each time u get a new ending it should be adding to the results screen endings statistic (right now i have 4(+2) because i have the 4 main endings plus 2 of the extras)

maybe that helps. i'm sure there are some unnecessary steps in there so don't freak out if u didn't do it this way. just keep an eye on your ending statistics to make sure it's accumulating all the endings on one save file.

The problem is if for whatever reason, you file isn't loaded, the game won't connect them and add to your endings. That is the reason why I recommend loading the results. Like you said, this really only applies if you get off the game.

You've got the melee/gun cheevs a little wrong. I'm 100% sure that you can shoot them to the ground and then kick them and it counts as a melee kill. I never once used a melee weapon except on eddie. Basically whatever the killing blow is will count.

Yeah, as soon as I got Maria I switched to pistol, shot to them twice (playing on Easy) & finished them off with kick - it didn't count towards firearm kill stat, but rather melee kill. Got over 150+ melee kills but only 10+ firearm kills :P

They seem eat alot of ammo, though. :x Not ideal on first playthrough (unless you've played SH2 before) or speed/2 saves playthrough.

It's clear that shooting then stomping doesn't work. I fixed it to say only shooting to finish it off for the achievement.

yeah... for shooting kills you can knock them down however you want but you have to kill them by shooting, and for melee kills you can knock them down however you want (including gun) but have to kill them by stomping or melee weapon.

Just a heads up, for the Flamethrower/Beam Saber, if you missed one, you'll automatically unlock the other once you beat the New Game +.

You have to get the Dog ending before getting the 10* because you have to have had all 7 ending prior to the 10* run.

Probably something worth mentioning in Silent Hill 3 if you unlock beginner mode after so many deaths or consecutive deaths you can enable it and still get achievements as well. So things like beating bosses in a certain time limit becomes even easier. I imagine it also helps with several other achievements as well like the speedrun achievement and the beat the game in 2 or less saves achievement. The melee achievement and weapons achievement would probably be made easier as well.

Update: Just heard that 2 has beginner's mode as well so I imagine that would help a lot as well.

I got my 10* on my Dog Ending Playtrough :P it was planned as a practice run but i got my 10*

But i'm still not 100% sure because i ended up with 506 Damage at the End and I had to reload and do Eddie and the Hotel again.
