First of, use the top guide if this is your first go at this achievement, it's the best one and covers it all! (healthy tip, do this achievement as soon as you can!)
But those for those who has been trying more then 2-4-10 times at this, this guide is for you.
I thought "WTH" and wanted to make a half guide for those who are stuck with Payday locked, and this is the hotspot of those trying to get to the bottom of this unlocking.
I have searched so many solutions trying to get this. I have talked to a couple who has in fact unlocked Payday as their last achievement and thought it had been glitched.
I made a thread to make things more sense to me when I was looking into this, if it's helpful to discuss between payday sufferers, you oculd just use this thread:Payday - To those who got it
(just ignore the title)
--Please don't vote on this at all until we've found out what works. I see someone votes I assume it's because it's helpful but not the solution, if it really was the solution, please please comment!-- =D
Update, Jan 17th:
I thought I would give it a shot but I E-mailed Terminal asking if it was possible to receive the achievement manually if I filmed myself filling the criteria. if anyone has a suggestion as to who to mail about this, I'll try them as well =3
Update, Jan 22nd:
No word from Terminal, but I decided to submit a Help ticket with Atari, so we'll see what I hear from them =3
Update Jan 23rd:
I got a reply from Atari;
"Thank you for your report, Unfortunately we are unable to resolve in game bugs immediately or provide any in game compensation or restore losses. But we can refer this to the developing team to work a possible fix on a patch or update."
LMAO if that's not a standard reply I don't know what. XD Really as they didn't answer my question. I asked if they could ask their developing team or if I could get the E-mail adress.
Of course still no word from Terminal XD
Here is the link to a help ticket to Atari if anyone else wants to bug them for a patch (never going to happen but... wouldn't hurt =3)http://support.atari.com/index.php?/Tickets/Submit
Update Jan 23rd:
I forget where I found this link, might be somewhere burried here on TA or xbox360achievement... But here it is anyway for an attempt on this achievement for you Payday sufferershttp://www.terminalreality.com/ghostbusters-multiplayer-achi...
Update Feb 6th:
I got a responce from Atari saying it is not possible. but it was so short and blunt so I have a feeling it was a way to just keep me quiet. in the first mail they seemed very agressive about not giving out a refund for the game spite I never even breathed a word about it XD Well anyway, still no word from Terminal, I'm planning to mail them to ask if their mail is active and if so can I have a answer plz. XD
I haven't been able to test this out yet (I will very soon, but the opportunity of more then a consecutive couple hours of gaming hasn't opened for me yet) but I have a hunch of this might just work for those Payday sufferers.
Something is clearly very wrong with this achievements, and I do not know what needs be done to get this to result;
But after every single match in each campaign, there are 3 sounds that come.
No sound, a ominous sound and a victorious sound.
My hunch is if you get all 3 levels on all 4 campaigns to sound the victory sound, it just might unlock.
My hunch is purely based on then the game knows you have been victorious...
Kirstyvox says this didn't work for them =[
Please share your experiences in the comments in this guide (except, "give it up, it's glitched" That much is obvious. 8> Don't crush a stubborn fools fun XD). These are mine which has not given me the achievement;
-I have tried doing this with 2 players only and in all in one session without leaving the game
-I am a post patch player.
-My boosting partner who has tried the same things is a pre partch player (story mode only) and played online post patch.
-Doing all 4 campaigns (victoriously, naturally) in a row.
-Doing all 4 campaigns with the boosting partner not even touching anything.
-Doing the bare minimum ( I really believe you don't need to do Gozer requirements).
-Doing all the campaigns with only completing Destruction, Survivor and Destruction.
-Doing all 4 campaigns with no death.
If you rather PM me then comment, don't hesitate, I'll happily discuss this topic! XD
Others Eperiences that's worth a read:
I played back in 2009 and only acquired a few multiplayer achievements. I picked the game up in 2011 and started finishing up the achievements. I tried many times for Payday!, but never got it and now I am at 990g. I've done every method you can think of, which includes the bare minimum requirements and the Gozer's requirements and still nothing. I used my alternate account, which I never played the game on and started the game up and did the bare minimum requirements and got the achievement in like 20 minutes.
Other noteworthy mentioning's
-Pre patch glitch say to affect those who played the online achievements before December 1st 2010. Those who played online before this date is said to never get some or all of the glitched achievements.
-After Dec 1st 2010 the glitches are still affecting the game but it's working much better. If you started your game after this date, you have a better luck getting all the achievements.
- To my understanding from extensive online research, doing this achievement first ( then all the online achievements ASAP before you start/ finish story mode) will make you more likely to get 100%.
