    Just an FYI, I'm testing this currently. Hoping it will be out by the weekend, but I'm inundated with work at the moment. Been able to verify the save manipulation technique works with a guinea pig, which is good news.

    EDIT: I'm realizing we're probably talking about the same exact method in which case nevermind my post below! smile

    Speaking of save manip techniques, I'm hoping in you're laying it out as such that you play both sides 50-50, only siding with one character over the other at the last possible story point, but not before a backup save is created (to the cloud or a 2nd console/device) which can be loaded to skip the majority of the subsequent playthrough. I hope that makes sense...?

    Anyway, if your strat is to do two complete runs, could I ask for a reference point considering what I said above.

    Thanks in advance! 👍

    At the moment I am doing a side with one and side with the other, over 1 3/4 playthroughs. At present, you'll earn your last achievement (presuming save manipulation works) by...

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    In my humble opinion, the method I have planned is the clearest way of doing it in a way where the game is enjoyable and natural to play, with a very nominal impact on time. If you disagree and feel I could save A LOT more time, feel free to inbox me! If it's the sake of an hour, I don't really want to be mixing and matching things too much. Streamlining people's time is important but I feel clarity is the #1 priority.

    Sound reasoning.

    I'll get back to you if there's something to sort out.

    Can I hear about this save manipulation thing in DMs? Wondering if this can work with other titles.

    It's in the process of being proofread and reviewed. As well as the other handful of walkthroughs I'm proofing right now.
    See You Space Cowboy...

    A quick debrief: I stored a hard save checkpoint at the Fela / Lynda choice. From thereon I tried playing both sides but got stuck with Lola at the end. Bummer! Had to do a 2nd partial playthrough from that "checkpoint" which saved me maybe 1½ hours tops...
    Pretty much exactly what you had anticipated.

    Thanks for the WT!

    EDIT: Oh, one more thing, the stacking achievement is a pain to do vs Greg because of the checkpoint. You'll have to talk for minutes before you can go again. I recommend the Apollyon duel instead, which is part of the story and has a quick checkpoint. 👍

    You can do the save manipulation when you get to the second drinking game (stacking) versus satan, saving you about 30 minutes if you're going for all endings at once. Unfortunately I didn't discover this until I had only the third ending achievement to go, but I tested it several times before finishing the third ending achievement and after getting the achievement (which is when the next autosave triggers) and it worked every time. When satan invites you to start the drinking game, the game autosaves, and you can do the save manipulation from this point instead (right before you get the option to "sit"). Perhaps I've overlooked something, but since all ending achievements seem to be related to the second drinking game (stacking) only, I don't see a reason to do it the long way.

    Since I already got two of the ending achievements I can't say with 100% confidence this is guaranteed, but it seems like it should work from the tests I ran. I did use the method to see a different ending (beat satan), so logically, to me, that should trigger the corresponding achievement.
    If you have to ask, you're streets behind.

    I never risked doing the checkpoint this late, but your reasoning is sound. To be candid I'm overly cautious, and categorically knew that outside Satan's would work. If I can replicate, I'll make the change (probably later this week). Thanks for your input!

    You suggest to grind out the drinks after reuniting Milo and Lola.
    However, I wouldn't get a prompt at the bar to order any drinks. Going back out of the bar and inside again didn't make a difference either.

    That's weird you should be able to...if you've got another playthrough to do, just move it so you do it before speaking to Lola at the end to reunite them and if that works I'll make a note. I definitely did it after though, so I'm not sure if there has been an update.

    Just to confirm - Satan will give you infinite retries if, like me, you suck at the drinking stacking game. I had at least 6 goes!

    Sorry would you be able to clarify/confirm the following. Your walkthrough covers how to get all 3 ending on the first playthrough (As long as the save trick works)?

    THEN the second playthrough is to wrap up some other miscellaneous achievements.

    That's actually a glitch. I;ve had it happen to me in earlier bars too and have had to reload my game save to get the bar to work again. So I imagine it might be that rather than an actual story progression blocking it off.

    Interesting.
    Well I still got the achievement in the same playthrough as I was at ~90% when the glitch happened. Then, I just drank a lot of shots in the final drinking game with Satan until I got it.

    I Stand corrected - You are right. You definitely cannot drink from the bar at that exact stage of the game and you cannot drink anywhere after either.

    That portion of the Walkthrough 100% needs to move to before you speak to Wormhole (The personal Demon). Otherwise you may miss your chance to drink however many drinks. I was super lucky and the last drink in the game counted as my final drink. Otherwise I would have had to do it playthrough 2.

    However - there is also the glitch where bars cannot be drunk at and you just need to re-load your game.

    Change is with overseer - my thanks and most sincere apologies, could of sworn I did it after. Hope the rest of the guide was useful.
