Posted 09 December 2005 - 10:51 PM

This is a work in progress... Lots of people seem to ask how to earn the achievements in PGR, It's not as clear as some other games. I was rather curious myself. I can't seem to find any guides online so I scoured a few boards and gathered what I could... If you can fill in any blanks or know something contrary to what I've posted let me know and I'll update this beerchug.gif

Also you can see which Kudos maneuvers you've completed by entering the "General Statistics" option under the Achievements menu.

One of the hardest badges to earn is the "Kudos for every Maneuver" here is a guide on how to achieve that

-Fastest Lap <- awarded after every lap, only one lap needs to be the fastest
-Clean Race <- awarded when you win the race (provided you had a clean race)
-Top Speed <- awarded when you win the race (provided you had the highest top speed)
-Position Bonus <-awarded when you win the race (provided you win)

What you DON'T need to get:
-Cone Gate
-Racing Line Accuracy
-Time Bonus

Neither the list in the book nor the list in the achievements menu is complete.

I did it on the last track in solo career set to novice. I picked the McLaren for this course because it seems to slide the easiest without being completely out of control like the Ferrari F50 GT. The track is wide open so as long as you're not completely stupid clean race is cake, also on novice you could easily lap all the other cars which makes it easy to get way ahead of them to get the Air, Two Wheels, and 360! Kudos. I start off trying to get the Draft, Overtake, and Overtake (Draft) kudos then once I do that I just blow by them getting a few random drifting kudos until I'm spaced out enough to get the harder ones like 360 Air and two wheels, once that's done just work on the drift/slide-list.

Also Clean Race IS required, that means you can't touch a single wall or a single other car EVER. This makes draft pass one of the hardest things to get because honestly the other cars just go too damn slow.
Top Speed is also required so make sure you set something record worthy on the stretch (don't crash). Neither of those will show up during the race, just make sure you do them. Everything else I've listed will show up during the race (including Fastest Lap).

For Air and Two Wheels the hairpin turn just before the last stretch is the best place to get them the apex of that corner is like a jump it you hit it straight at a good speed you'll catch air no problem, if you hit it a bit slower with just the left side of your car you can get Two wheels. (if you have trouble with 2 wheels try turning a little when you hit it to shift your weight).

Here is a breakdown of how to perform the various types of slides. from "megasnake" on the gs forums:

QUOTE

E-Brake Slide (using the handbrake to slide)
Feint Drift (when the turn comes up, steer in the opposite direction of the turn shortly then suddenly turn the wheel to the right direction at full force to make the car's weight shift slide the car in order to make the corner)
Braking Drift (use the brakes to slide)
Power Over (slide through a corner using your cars rev power to create a slide, so basically overuse the gas to slide)
Power Feint (combination of feint drift and power over , best done by releasing gas in front a corner doing the feint drift and apply a lot of gas while turning the wheel)
Braking Feint ( apply the power feint maneuver but instead of gas use brake , hard to pull off because the game will often see it as braking drift instead)
Braking Power Over ( approach a corner much to fast , then just in front of the corner release the gas , AFTER THAT just hit the brakes hard while maneuvering your car through the corner)


What I did was write down a list of all the maneuvers and paid attention on the screen, whenever I earned something I paused the game and checked it off... I was able to get this badge in 3 tries. The first try I missed on of the slides, I didn't know how to do, then I found the above descriptions.The 2nd try I hit another car in the first lap trying to draft pass so I just exited, and the 3rd try I got it.

^^^ Yeah, you have to build and save them for the Track Builder Achievement. I think it's only ten tracks, though. Sorry, it's been a while. IPB Image

For the Pro Racer Badge, you have to win a Platinum medal using manual transmission. The drift events and the "time vs. Kudos" events are both ideal for this achievement. biggrin.gif

For the Arcade Player Achievement, you have to play both Geometry Wars games in your Starter Garage. After you exit (or die) in the second game, you will receive this achievement when you're logged back in. As far as I know, it's not dependent on which game you choose to play first.

I'm still working on the Style Racer Badge, but this is what the game says: 25m powerslide, 10x combo, 25,000 online Kudos, 1,000 Kudos in a race, Kudos for every maneuver. I'm as sure as sin that I've done all of the requirements for this achievement, but no dice. I think I may have missed the 25m powerslide, but I've nailed the never-ending powerslide without a problem on the Vegas track. Then again, it's not a track specific goal so I think I might give it a go on the test track. biggrin.gif

I'm still trying to figure out the style racer one myself.

I got the Pro Racer one on the last race. (F1 circuit) I think its pretty easy to beat the computer on Platinum if you pick the right car. I found the Ford GT to have an advantage against the computers on that track. So I raced with the manual against them with that car.

Then I must be missing something else. I just don't know what because I'm pretty sure I've met the requirements. Maybe I need to find some more maneuvers for the "kudos for every maneuver" thingy. I don't think I've come across anyone that has that achievement. I only need four more to complete the list. The Gold Achievement is within reach except for the Timed Run on the Nürburgring.

@Tripme:
You do not have to purchase Geo Wars for the Arcade Player achievement. You can get it by doing what I said eariler in the thread. However, it's interesting that you can unlock that achievement by purchasing the game. Thanks for the info. smile.gif

have you done a 360?

looking at my kudos stats that's the only kudos item that I've never done...

You need to pic a track with a really wide open area, then pick a rear wheel drive car with more power than it's own good. use the e-brake for the first 180 and the over bearing power for the last 180.

I used to do them in PGR2 all the time but I haven't tried it in PGR3 yet.

top post updated.

is it just me or is PGR3 much harder to achieve stuff in then most of the other games.

I see just about everyone with COD2 has 200GP from it, 50 for basic training and 150 for completing the war

I see just about everyone with Madden 06 has the full 1000GP from it. If you play a single season and Sim out 30 years I'm fairly certain you get 80 or 90% of the achievments... and the last bit is just exploring the options in the game. dry.gif

Geometry wars is really tough to get GP in as well. I guess Bizarre wants us to work for it wink.gif

Yes, that's true. BC do make their games more challenging than a lot of other gamemakers while keeping them fun and addictive. wink.gif I like the achievements, especially the challenge of the two BC games as well as Hexic (haven't tried out PDZ yet). It's the Gamerscore I don't care for. I wish we could at least do something with it. Free Live Arcade game with every 5000 points maybe? biggrin.gif Hell, I don't think I've broken 500 yet. lol

Edit: For the Race Against the Clock Achievement, you need to set a lap time for every circuit in, duh, "Race Against the Clock" mode (under Playtime). Very time-consuming but also very easy.

Gotham TV Sports Fan - 15GP
Online Professional - 60GP
Race Against the Clock - 50GP
Style Racer Badge - 50GP

i think the style racer badge is an online career badge. cause online career is the only place you get an award for 25k kudos and other things that the style racer badge requires. when i get some more time to play online which is in a week or so, check my gamercard, i have a feeling i'll have that style racer ;p

This may or may not be helpful to people but I got the Style Racer badge after one of the cone challenges. Maybe it was a certain score that I got above, or perhaps I didn't crash in it (don't remember) or maybe all the turns were "stylish."
