    Making your characters face can be extremely difficult as the game has a hard time rendering the image unless it is perfectly snapped.

    - When taking your front photo, make sure your chin touches the bottom line of the red box, and the top of your head/hair touchs the top line of the red box

    - Move forwards/backwards to compensate for the size of your head!

    - Change the brightness so that there is enough light but not much darkness, but don't make it too bright as it will distort the colours.

    - When taking the side photo, just immediately turn your head to the left and snap - I found this worked 9/10 times when using the face-renderer.

    - Wait for about 3 minutes and it will either tell you something is wrong with one of the photos or that it's done.

    - Now bin the result after getting the achievement because it will no doubt look horrid! :p

    I know mine did.

    GTAmissions1If you can play it on the Xbox 360, it is possible. But if playing on the Xbox One, it won't give that option. Especially since it was my final achievement for this game years ago.

    There are still some listings on eBay regarding the vision camera. I know, it is ridiculous shelling out money for one or maybe two if you count Rainbow Six Vegas which also has the True Identity achievement too.

    If you are playing on Xbox One or Xbox Series X|S, then this achievement is discontinued for you. This is due to the fact that the hardware accessory is not supported by the emulator on next-gen Xbox consoles (i.e. it can't access physically connected Xbox 360 hardware).

    If you have an Xbox Live Vision Camera and any of the following Xbox 360 console types:
    - Xbox 360 (2005)
    - Xbox 360 Slim (2010)
    - Xbox 360 E (2013)
    ... Then you can still unlock the True Identity achievement.

    This applies to the first game (Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas) in the series and the German (DE) regional release which have the same achievement:

    If you have an XBOX LIVE Vision Camera, simply hook it up to your 360 and head to the character editor in game (outfitting).

    If you have already made a character you will need to reset them and start again. Head to the face section and there should be an option to upload your own photo.

    Follow the steps for taking a picture of the front and side of your head and then you should get the achievement after a few minutes of it rendering.

    PhoenixZX2No you have to use the Vision Cam, I tried with the Kinect and a Logitech web cam and no luck

    The Elven JediHow do 30% of the players have this vision cam?!?! Was this product really popular at one point? Is it just really inexpensive? Or did that many people seriously go out and "rent" it just for this one achievement?... And why would 25% of the players of this game go out and buy this if they're not going to be getting 100% completion anyway?...

    PM me if you have any theories!

    If you are playing this on the Xbox One through backwards compatability it is not possible to get this achievement since the Vision Camera is not compatible with the Xbox One (and it probably never will be). This has to be done on the Xbox 360.
