try the patch thread. from what it sounds like, this is a glitch occurring in a number of levels and most likely will fuck your whole game, as you can't get all the treasures/kits or the 100%

I personally got the unlock characters achievement the OPPOSITE way, with lurtz (newborn) not counting, but the blacksmith unlocking it. I think it just depends who you get last (with the last character not being needed), or must be different for some people.

And it sounds like you may be experiencing the infamous glitch of minikits not being counted... investigate it more with the thread on this board by SpongebobRoundpants that I've linked in the guide, otherwise... you may need to start over. :/

I got it to "reset" in a sense. I played straight through the story and then straight thru the free play. It still showed I needed the kit at that section. But the one I truly needed was after the cut-scene. It was where you dig out the mini-kit, it didn't register before the "reset". So now I have full completion, finally!

Are all the quests that require mithril treasures the ones that give you a red brick? I was just wondering if it would be possible to have one quest left, requiring a mithril item, but you can't forge it as the one last brick you need is the one you get after completing the quest?

Yes, I believe I put it somewhere in the guide. The quests for forged Mithril items from designs give you a red brick to purchase whereas the quests for a specific treasure from a chapter give you a Mithril Brick. Therefore, you will never run into the problem you described. Speaking of problems though, the game can be very glitchy in other aspects, so be sure to view the topic I linked about glitches as well as various others on the board.

It means 48 achievements and 1000 gamerscore, but I'm guessing you're kidding.

Just popped in to say, you really need to changed the glitches achievements tag in the original roadmap, as the treasure glitch is happening to a lot of people and is game breaking.

One of the most important parts of any roadmap is knowing glitches before hand.

good detailed guide overall though.

I think I will mention the game being glitched there, but there isn't truly any glitched ACHIEVEMENTS, just a glitched game in general in terms of collectibles.

If what you're saying here is correct, the reason the achievement will not pop for you even using this method is because you're trying it in Free Play and not Story Mode.

When I originally tried I had not even unlocked free play yet. I still haven't gotten the achievement and I am working on the rest of the game in free play now.

This achievement can only be earned on the fifth story chapter, The Mines of Moria.

Normally this achievement would be quite a challenge, as 'The Mines of Moria is a fairly long level to complete in under 15 minutes.

However, this achievement is exploitable. Simply enter the level in story mode, immediately press start, and save and exit, and the achievement will unlock. The game senses that you 'completed' the level in under 15 minutes, even though you just exited the level.

If the exploit is not unlocking the achievement for you, try to earn it legitimately. The opposite also applies; it seems that if one method doesn't work for you specifically, the other will. Regardless of method used, this MUST be done in story mode.
I think this solution should be edited to say:

"You must first complete the level in Story mode, then replay the level in Story mode again (NOT Free Play), skip the cutscenes, collect a few studs, and only then will you be given the option to 'Save & Quit'. If you exit the level the first time you play Story mode, or you do not collect a few studs the second time, you will just exit back to Middle-earth and it will not save."

You left that important piece out...

Also, you should add the bit about the patch on 12/20/12 fixing this exploit:

"A patch released on 12/20/12 fixes this exploit and now is unattainable if you've downloaded the update. To correct this, clear your cache and restart the game. When it prompts you to download the update, decline it and you will play offline. You can then use the exploit to unlock the achievement."

Hey thanks a lot, I like your wording. I'm going to copy it close to verbatim but will credit you.

Thanks. I appreciate it. The reason why I posted this is because I tried for like 10 minutes to get this before I completed the Mines and thought I was doing something wrong. After a little research, I read that you had to finish the level first in order to do this.

Like I said, a minor yet important piece to the solution.

Since the update I couldn't do this, but I just deleted the update an played offline an it took a few seconds an the achiv popped after i saved and quit


I'm glad to be with you. - 10
Complete a level in co-op.

The game has no online, so this will need to be done locally with a second controller. You can either play through an entire chapter with two players, or if you're doing it alone, have the second player jump in right before the level ends, the achievement will unlock regardless. I've even discovered by accident that you can simply start up a chapter and save and exit with two people; this one can't get much easier. Regardless of method used, this MUST be done in story mode.

Does the "Worth greater than the Shire" achievement have to be in all Mithril items to receive or can they be in any won item? I didn't notice it on your list.

You must not be reading the guide correctly then...

Quote:
Worth greater than the Shire. - 10
Dress a character completely in treasure items.

You can unlock this achievement while in a chapter or Middle Earth. Dressing a character completely means covering their head, chest, hands, and feet with treasure items. Both forged Mithril treasures and treasures found within story chapters will work for this achievement. You can use all of one or the another, or any combination of the two.

To clothe your character, press and hold and select fifth circle going clockwise. Find a treasure for your head, chest, hands, and feet and equip them all. I personally got this achievement with the Sun Hat, Wooden Armor, Mithril Boxing Gloves, and the Decorative Horseshoes, but as stated earlier, any treasures will do.

Delved Too Greedily...

Not sure if this method has been found or not, but I've uploaded a video to get quick and easy studs on the Helm's Deep level. Possible to get all 10 billion studs in 35 minutes.

Good for those of you in post game who can't be arsed to go back through and play all the levels again!
