    This achievement is for 5-starring every regular mix in DJ Hero 2. The only song that I would consider "hard" for average DJ Heroes would be "Firestarter", as it's possibly the only song on DJ Hero 2 that actually has sped-up and somewhat tricky scratching patterns. All you really need to remember is to aim for rewinds. Once you have a rewind, wait until you see a bright glowing arrow on both sides of the track, and use it there to bring you back a full bar or two of the song. As for Euphoria, do what's expected to be done and try using it for spots with plenty of notes, but preferrably areas with plenty of crossfades that can possibly screw up your pattern. Maybe "The Day That Never Comes" could also be considered tricky, but I wouldn't know. After you 5* "Firestarter" , you're all set for this achievement! Good luck!

    Make sure to choose a deck that compliments your play-style proper! :)

    Edit - A neat little tip provided by Flopsy86! Though this doesn't solve the problem with not earning your achievement, even though you're certain that you've done every song, you can write down the songs you've completed just to keep track, or you can use that cute little "Like" feature that was also mentioned! :)

    EDIT EDIT - More from Flopsy86! "Something to add to this, if you're playing Empire mode and happen to 5* Galvanize or Firestarter on Expert in the first Ibiza (encore) set, they won't count towards the achievement. This happens with any song where you start a particular location and it's in the first megamix setlist (where the score combines your total for all the songs and euphoria carries over between songs).

    I played the whole of Empire mode on someone else's profile on Expert only, I 5*'d Galvanize and Firestarter in the Empire mode. I got the You're Golden achievement for 5*ing Galvanize but when you go to Quickplay, these songs won't have any stars next to them, there were about 20 songs this happened to and I believe they were the ones in the sets which you play as a Megamix (the first set that automatically starts when you select a new location).

    There will be other songs which could be affected by this but I mention Galvanize and Firestarter because it can happen to those 2 songs and they are the hardest ones. Speed Rail/I Will Be Here falls prey to this also, that can be pretty bad to 5* also."

    This info was completely sidestepped by me, and I'm glad you brought that up! I, too, am certain that songs in Megamixes don't do anything for your star count, so make sure you do them ALL in Quickplay. It never hurts to try them again and better yourself anyway! ;)

    So if you think you 5*'d a song in Empire mode then it's not very reliable, you may have to re-5* the song in Quickplay, unfortunately I had to re-5* Galvanize and Firestarter.

    I did Firestarter first then Galvanize then the achievement popped which is a bit strange given that they gave me the Galvanize 5* achievement during Empire mode but then have to do it again in Quickplay.

    MARCELFiNKdeIs it possible to use cheats and still geht the achievement?

    Linkus2323Sorry my friend, but I believe any cheat that may alter the game-play whatsoever will disable the achievements for as long as you keep them active. Be sure to equip yourself with the right deck to compliment your style of play, and you'll have the 5* in no time!

    Also, if anyone is sifting through these comments and noticing me talking to myself, that's simply because the comments I was responding to ended up deleted for some reason, so appreciate them for whatever extra tips/advice that may be included within.

    Happy hunting!

    This solution helps you determine which tracks you still need to complete on Expert after all songs show five stars in the Quickplay list.

    This achievement is hard because of two reasons:
    1) On Expert some of the tracks are quite complex and fast. No real solution for this part, practice a lot;
    2) There is no way to determine which tracks you completed with five stars on Expert difficulty, if you already completed them with five stars on a lower difficulty. I found a solution to find at least some of the tracks (in my case all tracks) that still need five stars on Expert, without playing all tracks again.

    Previous solutions tell you to maintain a list of what you completed on Expert. This is still a smart thing to do, since checking the status of a song is quite slow and does not cover all cases.

    Before you start checking, it is best to disconnect from Live, otherwise it also shows the scores of your friends, making it harder to read your own. Before you start playing again, make sure you reconnect to Live and restart DJ Hero, otherwise it will not sign you in on the DJ Hero servers (which can be a problem according to M I K 3 ID).

    - Go to Quickplay;
    - Select and start the track you want to check;
    - Select ready;
    - select the difficulty you want to check;
    - Wait for the first few notes of the track to scroll by:

    On the left side of the screen you see your star meter. In your star meter there should be a yellow line and on the bottom your XBL tag should be in the accompanying yellow square. The yellow line shows your current high score for this track on whichever difficulty level you got this high score.

    If the yellow line is not in the top square (the one without a grey star in it), it means you never got a score high enough for five stars on Expert. So you definitly have to play this song again smile Find all these songs and you are a lot closer to the achievement.

    However if the yellow line is already in the top square, this does not mean perse you got the five stars on Expert. If you got a score on Hard or Medium, higher than the score needed to five star the track on Expert, the yellow line will also be in the top square facepalm So it doesn't really work in these cases, on the other hand: if you were able to beat the Expert score on a lower level, the song was probably not that hard and you also got it on Expert or you should be able to beat Expert quite easily.

    I found the last two tracks I missed using this method, which saved me tons of time and frustration smile

    The video bellow shows a track with five stars in the Quickplay list, but the star meter shows it got only four stars on Expert, so we have to replay this track to get five stars on Expert.

    For firestarter something that REALLY HELPED me was to try it a couple of times with the hyper deck, this improved my stars from just scrapping a 3 to a 4.. but i kept missing crucial euphoria sections. (speed too fast for me)

    After doing this I immediatly swapped to the euphoria deck ,and 5 * it on my first try!! the speed of the track it seemed SOOOO much slower now that i wasnt using the hyper deck, and could hit the trickier parts much better and generally attaining high enough streaks to get a couple rewinds in there as and when possible.
    Crucial for me was attaining 2 euphorias and using those on the fast cross fades/spikes. I found This is harder than galvanise which took me like 3 attempts to 5* (which surprised me)

    ps just got a couple left to do saving this cheevo for the end :)
