GoW2 SPG: Available Dummy Account & Services This thread is no longer valid for SPGs. It's old and outdated, please refer to other users Tin Can (11/2/09) ________________________________________________________________ I will not be able to give a service for SPGing. To those who've been sending me messages, I apologize for the inconvenience. Also, this Dummy Account does not have the new achievements on it, so I'd recommend you refer to someone else on these forums. ________________________________________________________________ PLEASE READ EVERYTHING BELOW BEFORE MOVING ON TO SPGING Here is a dummy account I recently created for people who want to self-SPG their accounts (and yes, this account has all achievements). Of course, I made sure that this account is working as properly as I need it to. This thread also includes a tut on SPGing for GoW2. Hope it comes in handy (profile download at bottom of post)! And, for people who don't have XSATA to USB connectors, here are people/a link to get a free SPG service for your account: For Free SPG Service(s) *For these services, I'd be glad to start adding names to this list. Just make sure you send me a private message and NOT post a comment of your service. This thread is an SPG-concern discussions only thread. - DOING SERIOUSLY GLITCH FOR FR33 (I believe you can also contact xcvxcv2 .

A: You would need to place this folder under to where all the other profile folders are located (Once you open your Harddrive/Memcard, go to Partition 3>Content). From there you can drag and drop the folder under Content. Q: Would you happen to know where I can get an XSATA to USB Transfer Kit? A: As a matter of fact, you can actually get a Harddrive Transfer Cable from Gamestop/EB Games. Those stores I know should have them, but depends on what's in store near you. Gamestop.com - Buy Datel Xbox 360 Xsata Transfer Kit - Xbox (thanks for the post adamc). If not Gamestop/EB, you can also get this transfer kit at any electronic store (referring to Circuit City/Fry's E/Best Buy/a local hardware store). Using the XSATA to USB Transfer Kit/or Cable For those who are using a transfer kit/cable, hook up your harddrive to a computer/labtop and open up Xplorer360 *If you don't have this program, you can download it here. From there, you then go under Partition 3>Content. Those are where the profiles are located (referring to the Q&A). Just drag and drop the Dummy account into Content and you now have the account. How To: SPG on NXE - Gears of War 2 1. Sign onto the account that has most/all of the achievements (you could probably get one of these accounts from a friend, or even from this thread, which the download should be on the bottom of this post, if you have a transfer kit/cable). 2. Start off by going to the Gears of War 2 menu. 3. Now go into Training Grounds and load the first Basic, but at the same time, quickly hit the dashboard button and sign out,then, quickly sign into the account that you want the achievements on. This is where the SPG kicks in. 4. It should bring you back to the menu, so to see if the SPG worked correctly, go into your War Journal. 5. If this had been done correctly, you should get "The Completionist", achievement. So, in this case, you can now look under your Unlockables to see if you have most, if not all the playable characters [including the ones from Gears of War 1]. Another thing you should check under War Journal is the Achievements section. Take a good look at the achievements. If all the bars are fully filled through out the other pages, then you know the SPG definitely worked. *Up-To-You Step: Say you wanted to get "Seriously 2.0" and the other "killables" achievements. Go into Horde and beat one wave to receive "Hoard the Horde". Kill one enemy to receive "Seriously 2.0". As for the Campaign achievements, load the first Act, first mission on Insane. Once you've completed the training for B. Carmine, you will then unlock ALL difficulty achievements (if you did not beat them yet). This basically goes for the rest of the achievements of multiplayer (one match locally/online, you will unlock "Party Like It's 1999"). In case your confused on how to SPG like from the step-by-step, here's an example video by MichaelVroegop (SB Michael): [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfsdkLPNf0s[/ame] *NOTE: Once the Campaign difficulty achievements have been unlocked, this does not mean that you unlocked all the other Campaign achievements at the same time. You must play through the Campaign in order to unlock the "Act 'n Chapters" achievements. To be made sure of: Before you SPG, you should make sure that you at least have the Campaign completed and had collected most of the collectibles (about 20 collectibles) since the SPG Dummy would already have a progress to where you collected every single one. But on the other hand, this can be resolved by getting SPG'd from a random blank account (no achievements/progress) so you can then start fresh and find the needed collectibles for the other first two achievements (for instance, Pack Rat. If you did not unlock it, follow from what was said and you should be able to unlock it). I've also heard that it's faster offline, so for those who are having sign-on issues, try that method. If any of you seem to still be having issues on this step-by-step, notify me in a PM, or you can message me up on Xbox LIVE - RaidMerc & L 3 3 T Side Again, hope this helped out. P.S: This thread has nothing to do with competition, this thread is only to help other people around these forums a chance to get their accounts SPG'd and giving specific info on who or who can't do an SPG service themselves.
