I got this achivement recently using the difficulty exploit. Worked beautifully.

To anyone trying for this and can't find the option to turn vitachambers off even after updating your game. If you have old Bioshock saves from before the DLC, DELETE THEM. They will cause some minor glitches such as the vitachamber option not showing up.

I was having the same problem, and that's what I did to fix it.

I also just exploited the exploit. I'd played and beaten the game on Hard a couple years ago, but didn't know about this achievement because it was 'secret'. So I ran through it on easy and never died. Hit start immediately after hitting A to drain the rest of the Adam, went to difficulty and pressed A twice to change to hard, hit start and got the achievement after the cut scene started.

I didn't start a new game after disabling Vita Chambers. I just turned them off (and never died). I didn't delete any old save games either.

These strategies were incredibly helpful. Hopefully I'll be able to pull off the 100% for the game. It would probably be my most difficult completion yet, and I was looking for a good strategy with which to conquer the game.

Fix to enable "Turn off Vita-Chambers"

The glitch is caused by using a new Xbox 360.

Like dscott I downloaded the DLC on a console that has since gone to Xbox heaven. Also, none of the previous suggestions helped me.

What finally worked was transferring the licenses to the new console. Microsoft has a nifty License Transfer tool over at Xbox.com (log in and check under the support tab). I ran this tool, re-downloaded the DLC and it fixed the problem.

The catch is that you can only transfer licenses this way once every 12 months, so make sure you don't quit in the middle of the process.


Here's what I did:
I deleted the DLC. I signed out of Xbox Live. I ran the License Transfer Tool. Re-downloaded the DLC.

I was then able to see the "Turn off Vita-Chambers" option at the bottom!

im not sure if this has already been posted, as i havent read all the posts, but:
for anyone having the glitch where the disable vita chamber option is disabled,this is what i did and it worked, saw it on another site:

download the dlc on a live account that has NOT played bioshock. after it is downloaded on that account, start bioshock on your main live account and bam..... the option should be there.
hope this helps, it sure helped me.

Awsome. I will definately have to keep this FAQ in mind cause I am about to go back to Bioshock and try to get those last 6 achievements I need, including Brass Balls.

I haven't played it in quite some time and I really look forward to going back and playing it again for several reasons.

When I played it I only had an SDTV and the game looked great. Now I have an HDTV so I can't wait to see what it looks like.

Also I recently got Bioshock 2 and I am going to replay 1 first before I start up 2.

I enjoy every time I play-through this game, I still play it now even after I got all achievements.

Yay just got 1100!

If you have a save on easy near the end of the game (and have not died yet, but had vita chambers on) you can still get this. Switch to Disable vita chambers on before getting on the elevator, then switch the game to hard right before you stick the needle in Atlas the last time, I got it no problems. You'll get it when the ending cutscene begins.

So if I died at all with vita-chambers on I need to restart with new saves even to do the exploit, right?

Correct.

I recommend this:

Play through the game on easy, nothing else changed. DO NOT DIE

Right before the elevator ride, save and then turn on disable vita chamber.

Then, right before you click "A" the last time in the boss fight, switch it to hard.

Then finish.

This is how I got it.

Hmm did i miss something? I already had vitachambers off, so i started a new game on easy, played all the way through without dying, beat the boss and immediately paused to change the difficulty, didn't work. i tried the whole boss on hard, still didn't work. Any suggestions?

Try turning the game to hard RIGHT BEFORE YOU PRESS A FOR THE LAST TIME. That's what I did. If that doesn't work, I'd probably try an easy speedrun with my method.

I just got back to trying this game again, and when I loaded it up there was an update. I don't know what the update was for, but I noticed that the Disable Vita-Chambers is no longer available in the options menu. Does this mean that it's impossible to get this achievement now?

I also died (that's how I figured out Vita-Chambers were no longer disabled), but instead of reloading, I quit to the main menu. Am I still totally screwed?

You have to do it from the Options menu in a game. There is no way to do it from the main menu.

old game, but damn good

So I just recently tried this game. I gotta say, pretty sweet. I tried to use a guide to figure out how much ADAM I could spend and no one was really specific on anything. I went through the whole game on hard, first run through and the only thing I bought beside achievement-related tonics was 1 health upgrade and enrage. I ended the game with a sick amount of ADAM left, almost 900 (maybe more, can't remember). 100% achievements. The first big daddy took about 10 tries, but I got it without having to backtrack. As for Atlas? That guy is a joke. If you have electric gel it was stupid easy. The first, and only enemy I killed with electric gel was Atlas. He couldn't/didn't move. Didn't get hit once during that fight. Anyway, good luck to others / congrats ... as applicable.

To have it you must have the Ryans Industry Plasmids DLC. It's free.

Can Anyone confirm that this does in fact still work even with all updates that have since been released??? Thanks in advance... NEVERMIND THIS DOES WORK!!!
