Fable Heroes Achievements

Fast & Furious

Complete the Mine Cart Mini-Game in under 13 seconds. This unlocks a tile on the Inner Board.  

One of the more frustrating achievements in the game. If you are struggling to unlock this the normal way, and constantly getting a very close time, but not quite there, you're in luck.

Firstly, to unlock the mini-game you'll need to complete the Hobbe Caves level, and choose the right hand side path.

Now you have 1 of 3 options:

  1. Do the achievement normally. Can be frustrating, but is possible.
  2. If you have a turbo controller, you can try using it for the achievement. Certain brands will do the trick, but some won't.
  3. If you have a friend who has unlocked this mini-game, have them start an online session and invite you. Have them set it up so that the characters are inside the carts, and waiting for them to choose "I Understand!", right before the race. Now join their game (using his invite) and have them start the race anywhere between 7-22 seconds (depending on connection speeds). AFTER you accept the invite. You will join DURING the race, and will be added halfway through. Your timer will start from when you join allowing you to easily register times under 13 seconds. If your friend starts too early, you will join after the race ends. If your friend starts too late, you will join before the race begins. This may take a few tries for you to nail down the timing, but this is the easiest way if you are struggling. Just adjust the time your friend waits to start the race accordingly. Thanks to user DarkThom for this tip!

Is anyone having trouble with this? I am usually very fast at pushing buttons but cannot get this for some reason.

I keep getting JUST over 13 seconds
best I did was 13:30

I couldn't be pressing the buttons any faster. It's physically impossible for me ): Which is weird cause I'm usually good about pressing buttons fast

This is just sad. 13:00 once, but no clue how I even got that. Guess I am just not twitchy enough.

Set your controller on a table, make sure you are on normal so you only have to push two different buttons A and X, and start off by jamming A, then X whenever a turn comes, then back to A. Took me a couple tries, but if you learn when the button changes, you'll never miss a step and never slow down. Good luck!

Pow bam has it. You have to anticipate when the button is going to change so u don't miss a beat

DarkThom came up with the trick to do it. He has posted a video on youtube. To reiterate his trick, have a 2nd player send you an invite while he is in the mine cart waiting to click "A" to start the race. The 1st player needing the achivement needs to have the message open ready to click on accept. The 2nd player tells the player to accept/go. The 2nd player counts seconds based on connection time. My wife's connection with me was 14 seconds. The 2nd player says accept, counts 12 seconds, then hits "A" to start the 3 second race counter, so 12 + 3 is 15 seconds total duration from when the first player has accepted the invite. At this point the race is afoot, when the first player loads in he/she just needs to crank the buttons and finish. Did this twice and got in the 6-7 second range. H

I've always taken pride in my fast fingers. I've done this about 6 times and I got under 13 seconds every time. But I go ass fast as possible with no slip and I JUST make it. Not even by a full second, so if you have moderately fast fingers, you are in for some stress with this one.

This is the "Explination" given at Achievement Punter:

DEV 1: “Ok guys, 5 points of gamerscore left to assign. What shall we do?”
DEV 2: “Hmm, perhaps something to do with good and evil choices?”
DEV 1: “Possibly, possibly. Anyone else?”
DEV 3: “I was thinking maybe something for one of the race mini-games, beat a certain time?”
DEV 1: “Oh, I like that! What’s a good time for…I don’t know…the mine-cart race?”
DEV 4: “I was playing around with that last night, about 14-15 seconds seems fair”
DEV 1: “Perfect. So, under 15 seconds then? Bit of a challenge?”
DEV 3: “Yeah, sounds good. The players will enjoy that.”
DEV 5: “Wait.”
DEV 1: “Who said that?”
DEV 5: “Me. The new guy. Luke Iffer.”
DEV 1: “Sounds a bit like…”
DEV 5: “Yes, it does. Make it 13 seconds.”
DEV 4: “That…that’

Don't boost with TLA Tohig I did in X-Men Arcade for the four player achievement he got his and bounced out to go play sonic 2 a game he had already got 200 gamerscore in. I was using 4 controllers also which was a pain in the arse but Mr TLA Tohig don't care he is just in it for his self. I'm surprised he is that stupid to ask for help right under someone he just screwed over no more than a week ago. Just sayin TLA Tohig is a prick who needs his face smashed in.
