    Leon Kowalski@DAVOLICIOUS: I have the Platinum Hits edition and the dashboard will not let me copy my save file between the hard drive and my memory unit (I get the message "This item cannot be transferred between storage devices").

    I wonder if I could put the save on the MU, then pull out the MU right before making the choice. Perhaps that would work if the game doesn't pause like when a controller shuts off.

    CadmusTheDragonSpoilers............... For anyone who went with this choice as your final selection and wants to get their dog back, you can go to Knothole Island with the DLC and use the Cheet-Ur's Crypt to get your dog back. This is the only structure in the grave yard as soon as you enter the village on the island. Just lead in a human sacrifice and your dog gets resurrected.

    You can actually wait until the credits start. The game will not actually save and lock you out of getting the remaining achievements until after the credits complete.

    Watching the reactions of the characters is interesting. Especially Hammer's comments.

    As mentioned in the other solutions, you can save, then exit to dashboard, then reload and choose the other two.

    Unfortunately, as I've just found out, you can't back up your pre-ending save by copying it from one storage device to another. So, it looks like my current Hero is done for, since I'm saving that game to help others get any endings they're missing. Just send me a PM, and I'll try to get a session together to get you whatever endings you need.

    UPDATE: 2014-12-31 - Looks like my save file is corrupted (thanks, cheap USB drives!), so I can no longer help others with their missing achievements. Sorry, everyone.

    ZordnilWhen i first played through Fable 2 i was not into achievements and therefore only got one ending, Bonus Eruptus helped me get the other two. It only took a few minutes to join his game and see him make the choices. Saved me having to play the whole game again.

    Thanks man!

    OzzysShadyDiscoThanks a lot! You saved me the trouble of replaying the whole game again.
    It's a great game, but I just don't have the time to do it all over!

    Just select it, and after the achievement pop up goes away, exit to the dashboard, go to the game and pick other choice...

    Is gonna take you around 5 minutes, is a good choice if you are not going to play the game again, or if is a rental....

    I was missing this achievement adn did not know about the dashboard trick. So I just entered my friends game right as he was about to make his choice and i got the Achive. so what iam saying is even though it dosent say "or see another player do so" it ispossible to get by seeing someone else choose it.

    Pro Needed - Fable II is an awesome thread created by pezza888. You can find "pros" here to help you out with a variety of achievements on Fable II.

    I happen to be the "pro" to help you with this achievement. As others have stated, you can unlock this achievement by "seeing another Hero do so." So I am volunteering myself to be that other Hero. Send me a message here on TA or online and I'll help you out as soon as I can.

    Alternatively, you can go through the game yourself. Just be sure to save the game after entering the Spire but before you make a selection. This way you can dashboard after earning one achievement, and reload your last save to earn another. Repeat this once more and you'll have all three ending achievements.
