    This is when you visit Clonfira for the first time with Aidan.

    The wording is wrong. You don't need just one placement to unlock this achievement. But one placement in each of the consoles.

    When you're back in control, head up the steps to the right, pick up Arthur's cap and the Orb. Now comes the part where you need to be quick.

    1: There are 2 consoles on the left. Head over there, and use the Orb with the left console.

    2: Quickly take it back out, and then use the Orb with the right console. If you're quick enough, the door will open for you, allowing you to progress and unlock your achievement.

    According o creptor5291 and I AM CULLY, you can dashboard, reload and try again should you mess it up first time around. Thanks for the confirmation.

    scotwolf2hi all,
    just to let you know the dashboard quit method still works.
    i'd put off doing this as had got to this stage and mucked up months ago.

    gave it another go today mucked up several times the orb was in the right hand console even went back n forth with the orb before quitting. but as i hadn't successfully opened the door as i think you need to place orb before 3rd beep kept going and was going to replay to same spot to get achievement.

    anyway after 5-6 attempts of dashboard/quit achievement poppedsmile
    thank you

    Segendary Ty"Also, the reason I failed it the first twice is because I went to press Y to open my inventory and it closed it instead. After pressing X to retrieve the orb, IT WILL AUTOMATICALLY OPEN YOUR INVENTORY. So just press down twice to select the orb and quickly move your cursor over to the second machine pressing the appropriate button."

    Comment up above, should be included in the guide!

    WhyattThrashYou don't even need to dashboard, just use "load game" from the in-game menu if you mess it up.

    cooper101183i can confirm you dont need to dashboard quit, just exit to main menu and choose continue, the trick is place the orb in the second console before the second beep, if you place it after the second beep its too late, but as long as you just quit to mainmenu then choose continue you get an unlimited amount of attempts.

    I second Segendary Ty's comment that NoHeroes94's original comment should be ADDED to the guide and the walkthrough. I kept failing to get it, but I also kept closing the inventory, then walking to the second console. After I did it this way (just leave inventory open and place item from there, without physically going to console), I popped the achievement. I can also confirm that you still get many attempts, using the dashboard technique. smile

    GuardianAngelGGSIDENOTE - When I finally popped this achievement, I thought I got it and the door opened, but the achievement did not pop. It seemed I did it right, so I stood there for about a minute, but nothing happened. I assumed I must not have done it correctly, so I dashboarded out again. While I was out was when the achievement finally popped. You may get a delay when you do it right, so I recommend still waiting and eventually dashboarding out, in case you are not sure if you got it or not. That way, you give a delayed achievement time to pop if necessary, but you also dashboarded out, in case you have to try again.

    CatTullyJust did the dashboard quit out method after failing and it loaded me in with the orb on the second console. roll

    Edit: Picked up the orb so it was in my inventory, then dashboarded. Achievement popped on next attempt.

    xNeo21xYou don’t need to dashboard and close/relaunch the game. If you don’t do it fast enough, just quit the the main menu and then click Continue to return to just before putting the orb in the machine.

    LeiChatAnother +1 for noting in this guide (and the walkthrough) that the inventory automatically opens and to avoid pressing Y closing it.

    William723I dashboarded & the orb was in the second console. Used CatTully's method above and the achievement popped after 2 more tries. No need to start a new game.

    Thanks CatTully!
