Blue Dragon Achievements

Closed Flying Fortress Door

You closed the Flying Fortress door without fighting the mecha robos.   

Really early in to the game this one. Just after you defeat the land shark and escape from the underground ruins, you are beemed on to a ship. This is a rapid button pressing event, so get ready to bash A after running towards the door after the 5 or so robots appear.

Time in: Approx 20 mins
Note: Save point just before

This achievement is ridiculous I have mashed this button like a million times. every time i do it i get it just about closed and one of the robots gets through, i've used my fingers, a lighter, a pen,...getting very frustrated I'm about to just go and get a turbo controller.

Any suggestions?

I too had a lot of problems with this. Until I went to my nephue's house. He had an X box 360 Elite and very nice black controller, did it his first try. Just figure I would put it up.

Got this on my first try without knowing it was an achievement. I guess I'm just used to tapping buttons or something as I don't believe any of the robots were near the door when it shut.

mine always lets one through right before it's totally closed, its really annoying

If you're having problems with this (it took me 8 times to get it) then you could try rubbing a pen lid against the A button like I did. This achievement seems nearly impossible just by using your fingers :/

I got it on my second try...but it felt like the robot was a split second from getting in. I don't know how using another object other than your fingers could help you with this...I'd think it'd make it harder that way. Perhaps I'm used to button-mashing though.

This achievement is actually the easiest one in the game all you have to do is tap A before the actual button tapping segment begins and it will already be done when it starts and doing this with just your finger and the robots won't even get close to the door. Hope that helps

I got this a while back but a tip to anyone having trouble with the button mash achievements, take the eraser end of the pencil and have it touch your A button(or what ever button is necessary for the spam), when the event starts simply use tap the controller with your pencil as fast as your possible.

It should go much faster since you are using your hand and wrists, rather than your thumb.

i thought this was extremely easy too... especially compared to the last button smashing one. that one took me like 5 tries

It's almost impossible (at least for me) to use your thumbs/fingers. After about 5 tries, I used a pen cap. I put the cap between the A and B buttons and acted like I was doing a scratch-off and the speed the meter filled nearly doubled compared to my prievous speed.

Easy, did it first try, i suppose all that button-mashing in the arm wrestling on Shenmue paid off :D

I know this games been out for awhile but I figured out possibly the easiest way to do this. First, let me say I tried this for 4 hours unsuccessfully. Then I found a trick that worked for me LITERALLY the FIRST TIME I tried it!

Place the controller on a hard surface to maximize stability, then take a lighter (I used a beveled bic lighter, as in the sides weren't flat) and held it at the top. Use the bottom corner of the lighter where it is beveled and rake it across the A button as fast as you can (I also read somewhere that doing this in-between the cut scenes with Shu closing door gives you a slight boost though I can really say)

Just a precaution though, doing this might produce scuff marks by the a button, so be carful. If you use a lighter without a beveled edge this might not
