I think if you kill the zombies, then have the survivors follow you up the stairs in the sports store across to the "New U" shortcut and then in to the safe room, you should have enough time. Am I correct?

 

Wow, I completely forgot about the shortcut. I'm sure you'll have plenty of time to rescue the survivors using the shortcut via Brand New U.

 

Nice gamerpicture by the way.

I'm very annoyed at this, been spending all night trying to do this (without doing the case files but still giving katey the zombrex). I have been at the K'store for the 2nd part of the mission for about 9:15AM and i just get nothing! It just says locked, no call or anything, if anyone can help me out co-op or something, i do not feel like restarting the whole game just to get these last 2 annoying combo cards.

I'm waiting for mission 2 to pop up, but now I'm concerned. I'm not doing the case files in this run, just the side stuff. If mission 2 pops up at 9:15, is 45 minutes of game time enough to complete this (as asked above)?

Yep. You can use this method but time is very tight. Decided to go for this one yesterday, after I'd already let the case files expire. Just make sure that you're standing in front of the shortcut at Royal Flush Plaza when you receive the call and run as fast as you can. :p

I also registered just to say thanks to jeppeboy for this guide. I just happened to be browsing the forum and saw this thread about a mission I'd never heard of, and I got the S ending already, lol. It also just so happened that I was at the right part of the game to take advantage of this. I didn't even know about the secret door/mission!

 

I had just saved at 4:05 am day 3 and was able to pick up the 3 gambling magazines, get the whores out of the pool, beat the poker players, and grab stuart from out front of atlantica with 12 game minutes to spare before giving katey zombrex. then when I left the safe house to grab the saw & plates, WWJD & bank run popped up. I was still able to activate the TIOD door despite having those missions on my list.

 

I wasn't expecting to get the Data Miner achievement, that was a nice little bonus. And I also grabbed the unique outfit in their hideout.

 

I'm definitely referencing this thread for part 2!

 

thanks again!

I don't understand why its locked for me and i never recieved the call for the 2nd part of the mission.:confused:

 

EDIT okay it finally popped, they appeared at like 9:15AM randomly however i had no chace because of the time, where is this short cut? cause i went to New U and it wouldnt let me use the shortcut if it was in there.

 

EDIT AGAIN: I'VE DONE IT!!!! hurray! i managed to get to the safe room at 9.59AM lol without using the short cut.

Here's my problem with this mission. I had a clear message board except the WWJWD? And the Ante Up missions. This is was still preventing me from opening the door. So does Ante Up, with all the previous saved survivors attending, do I need to kill them instead of saving them?

 

Ante Up is a miscellaneous side mission and has nothing to do with the survivor limit.

 

Just do the WWJWD mission and make sure the professional poker players are dead; as well as the four chicks who want money.

I already had the escorts from the Pallisades Mall Grotto. So maybe it was the three card players...

I just did this without the case missions (and the shortcut) as well though it is darn near impossible and I dont recommend it.

 

1. I got the Leadership magizine,

2. then waited at KokoNuts for them to spawn at 9:15

3. quickly killed the zombies with metal bat/ magicians sword, talked to them

4. ran them to the passageway that leads from Palisades Mall to Silver Strip (Hot Excitorama store)

5. Into Royal Flush Plaza, got in the sports car with one survivor, drove to safe house, went inside turned in the guy, went out and back in for the others,

 

9:59 on the clock 5 seconds or less from military showing up.

So when I started a new playthrough, I left the kid turn, thus the storyline ended there. On the first and second days, I let all messages expire, except for Meet the Contestants and Snowflake. Starting on the third day, I killed anything that popped on my watch, leaving nothing to chance when 6:00 am rolled around. I also saved Linnette and opened the shortcut. I made sure the card players were gone, killed Jed in the South Plaza along with Ray. Killed Janus in front of the Atlantica, and killed the whores on top of the Grotto in the Pallisades. Boom, it worked. I'm happy.

 

When it came time to complete the second part, I got all my shit together, made sure all of my shit was in order, got the best zombie clearing weapon, and sat at the entrance to the Palisades waiting for the call. That way I knew I'd get the call instead of not spawning them. Didn't want to take the chance of it not working. Needless to say, I got them all there with 10 game minutes to spare. Yay.

 

That's what I did. Saved a total of 5 people in 3 Days. FYI this playthrough was the money making one. I got the three gambling mags, and did the Giant Slot machine. The Ninja costume helps, the zombie more or less ignore you. So relieved it's over!

there can be only 8 survivors at one time

i think it's 'just in case' but considering achievement taking 6 game days i'd rather kill em

 

We must have drastically differing styles of playing this game. There is more than enough time to do every mission and save every survivor in this game, unless you’re trying to knock out some of the other achievements like try on all the clothes and using every weapon.

 

I’ve done every mission including winning the card game with the three poker players and won the card game in the “Ante Up” mission and I still had times I was just sitting there with nothing to do. Hell I was running around getting gifts for Katie just for something to do while waiting for another mission to come up.

I was able to save every single survivor available including the Tape it or Die team and get the True Ending all in one playthrough.

 

I also faced every single psychopath.

And I still had times where I just ran around killing zombies because I was bored as hell with nothing to do.

 

Honestly, if you don't run in blindly and organize your path, it's far from complicated.

I would like to say that OP is wrong about the time. I am on day 3 at 4 P.M. with every possible survivor/psycho saved/killed up to that point, and the door is locked. Sorry, but it appears the door does indeed lock at noon the third day. Sucks, too, cuz I really just needed to get in there for the last outfit. Dammit. Anyone who reads this that has a save with it open, I would greatly appreciate letting me run in and get that last outfit. I already saved them in another playthrough on co-op, but didn't know about the outfit at the time.

Its probably worth noting that the piece of clothing, the "Mid-Length T-Shirt Jeans" for the "Chuck Greene: Cross dresser?" achievement is located in the 'Tape it or Die' room with the survivors. If you dont do this side mission and in turn, every case file and zombrex dose prior to it, then you wont be getting the Cross dresser achievement in that run.
