    The trick of waiting for Indoorsman and getting Outdoorsman at the same time is still functional as of 10th March 2011. I've added this guide for anyone looking for exact instructions on what to do.

    1. Start a new game in 72 Hour Mode.
    2. When the chopper drops you off, walk into the door next to Carlito.
    3. Go through the Security Room and out into the mall (Entrance Plaza).
    4. At this point you get the cutscene where you first see Brad and you're told to get something to help barricade the door. Instead of doing this I just stood by the window on the balcony overlooking the car park outside and waited for my Indoorsman achievement to pop.
    5. Once Indoorsman has unlocked, return to the Security Room the way you came and save your game on the couch provided.
    6. When it then pops up advising that the game has saved successfully and asking if you want to continue playing, turn your XBox off (I used the guide button but I expect it'd make no difference using the 360s power button or a remote control).
    7. Turn your 360 back on, start Dead Rising and choose Continue Game. Outdoorsman will pop as soon as you're back in the game.

    Be aware that the game will auto-pause if your pad switches off so you'll either need a play and charge cable or wired pad to do this. Others have suggested rubber banding your wireless pad so that Frank keeps moving but I can't confirm this as I used a wired pad. The steps I wrote above are exactly what I did. Any questions or clarifications feel free to contact me.

    InFamousAnthunyDoubt the game has gotten any updates since the last posting, and I doubt it ever will again, but for reference, it still works as of July 28, 2014. Thanks for saving me 4 hours.

    Just start a new game and leave it running once you get to the rooftop (directly after the flyby). Really, that's it. Takes 2 hours realtime for the achievement to pop.

    Don't try this method once you've actually entered the mall and gone through the opening with Brad, as at that point if you take too long, the case will run out and the game will be over, denying you the achievement.

    IvanTortugaWill it really end or will it just say that the truth has escaped (or w/e) because I know you can continue game after that pops.

    A much easier way to get this achievement is when the game starts and theres no zombies in the mall . Run over to brad and spin round in circles! (WHILE INSIDE THE MALL) Then you will get your indoorsman achievement. Once you have gotten this run upstairs to the Bed/Seat and save game. Turn off xbox and turn back on. Load up dead rising continue game and KA POW you should instantly get the achievement without going outside at all!@ U GET 2 For 1!!!

    HOFFYIt's a great guide. Not unique, but still good. Not sure why people vote it down. Maybe because they didn't think find this solution until later and are angry they wasted an extra 2 hours.
