Post Professor Portal - Explained.

Professor Portal 75
After completing co-op, complete Calibration Course online with a friend who hasn’t played before

What you must do beforehand
  • Complete all six stages of the co-operative campaign
  • Have the person you will be playing with on your friends list
Now you have to find a friend who hasn't played the co-op campaign before and just complete calibration course with them, and the achievement will unlock for you.

If you cannot find a friend who has not played before then ask them to create a new account/upgrade their silver account to a gold membership account, then proceed as normal.

You Cannot:
  • Gain this achievement over split-screen
  • Move your save to another device and start a 'new' save

To find other members for this achievement see Here
Any other questions don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks.
Yeah you can still unlock the achievement this way.

It seems that way, but there are a few discrepancies.

One of the stupidest cheeves ever.

"If you cannot find a friend who has not played before then ask them to create a new account/upgrade their silver account to a gold membership account, then proceed as normal."

What? So for 75gs, someone needs to create a new account, and pay for a month of gold? Stupid.

Aside from being a stupid achievement, it's WAY too much GS. 10-15, but 75? ... stupid.

It's allot easier if you play split screen and your buddy can sign in as the guest > complete all the challenges.> Then play with your friend on xbox live.> Then one of you is bound to have a 48 hour gold xbox live card so your friend can get it with an account you make with the gold card.

When you create a new Xbox Live account...the first month of Gold is free, so basically you could just have a friend create a new account with a random e-mail address, and they get a month free of XBL, not really much of a hassle.

This is why I hate multiplayer achievements. Because most of the them require you to do dumb stuff like this, and you usually cannot get them from simply playing the game.

Still, this one takes the cake for dumbest achievement ever.

I completely agree on MP achievements but after playing Crysis 2 for their MP achieves... i would gladly anyday of the week have to just make another account right quick to 1000 this game rather than waiting 6 months to get a 1000 on Crysis 2. This is a stupid achieve yes, but in the end, very easy and not as big a problem as people are making it out to be. If anybody wants to scream about MP achieves, including myself, look no further than EA. They are looking to bury achievement whores. Its just gonna get worse from Crysis 2 on. Mark my words !

Again I have to say Crysis 2 has the dumbest achieve ever (other than that Brother in Arms achieve where you have to play Sept 22nd or sumthin like that). You have to play online 6 months afte your first time playing online. Thats just ridiculously stupid. Now i gotta wait til late September, early October to get 1000. WTF? STUPID !!!!!

Stupid

Doesn't this mean that if every single person in the world plays this game in order, 1 person will still not be able to get the achievement? Thats retarded.

not if you cheat the system by making a starter gold account for your friend that hasn't beat the game that won't actually play the whole thing.

Sorry for this stupid question but what is the calibration test? Is it the thing where you pick your favorite animal and element? How far do you have to progress in order to unlock this?

the calibration course is the level that comes before you get to the HUD, the animal and element is part of it but it also includes everything until she drops the confetti.

So... stupid question.. If I have done the offline calibration course, does that exclude me from being able to help someone get the Prof Portal achieve? I haven't played online at all though.

No, you won't be able to help somebody else get the achievement.

Bullshit

So I just tried getting this achievement by finding someone completely random and during the cutscene of the robots being made, I added that person through recent players. Then I completed the course and NO achievement what so ever. I also hugged about 4 people that were on my friend's list. Still no achievement.

I think in both cases it has to be people on your friends list BEFORE you start the game from the xbox360 dashboard. Just guessing that might be the thing your forgetting.

This thing certainly has way too many issues. How on Earth are you not suppose to boost this one? You'd need a really stupid friend who is just too stuborn to get the game.

Can you delete your save data and trick it into thinking your account hasn't played co-op?

I was thinking to get my friends second account to get me the achieve, then delete my data and get him the achievement. Would that work?

No, that won't work. The only way for you to help him is if you have a spare 48-hour gold trial code lying around.

I have a feeling it's achievement based. There's an achievement and an award for completing co-op, so that's probably what it's checking.

yeah it probably reads the high five achievement to see if you have started the game and the you saved science one to see if you have beat it.

guess that means I'm wrong, probably has to start you out in the calibration course, not the HUB, for it to work.
