How to Cheat Your Way to Success in Fable 2 Pub Games

Take note, developers: if you’re going to give players a chance to accumulate money before a game comes out, you might want to make sure there aren’t any glitches present in that system. That’s the issue facing Lionhead now that an exploit has been discovered in their Fable 2 Pub Games that’s netting some unscrupulous players an endless supply of cash. Checking the leaderboards soon after the game’s release, I was amazed to see how much gold some people had managed to accrue in just a few hours. Now that I know how they most likely did that, it’s less impressive. The video above shows just how the method works, but it’s really as simple as hitting the LB button right after you place a bet in Tower of Fortune. This basically tricks the game into giving you a payout much greater than the one you put in almost every time, so you can just keep raking in gold to your heart’s content.

It is worth noting however that Lionhead may be working on a way to strip some players of their ill-gotten gold later on. Still, if you’ve got no qualms about cheating and denying yourself much of a challenge when the full game comes out, go right ahead.

Blue pill, thanks.

I don’t know why people are buying the game in the first place, if they’re just going to bypass major chunks of it. Such is a scenario where the player doesn’t get their full value for money. Depriving themselves of a portion of the full gameplay experience offered by the game, is all they’re really accomplishing with ‘lollerchetz’. :neutral:

^ Did you honestly expect anything else from a console player?

Bounce, what does being a console player have to do with anything ? Console or PC< exploits abound and if there is a game there is a way. Noone is exempt. Personally I don’t care who does what and just plan to play and have some fun without resorting to cheats but it is cool to see what people have learned to do already.

The difference is age. Try a multiplayer game on Live, that’ll shut you up.

On the age thing,I have to agree with Bounce. Just to throw something out there,compare PC TF2 with 360 TF2.

I’m also with Bounce. I could write you a novel on what console gaming has evolved into and why it is a joke. With that aside what is with all this hype on Fable 2. I played Fable 1 and yes it was a decent game, but it was NOTHING revolutionary. Its turning into Gears of War and Halo, both ty games that get way too much publicity. Some quotes “this will be the best game ever…” and mass effect is best rpg so far but I think this[Fable] is better!!! Don’t get me wrong I liked Fable, but this games fan base, my guess, 99% kids, has overstepped what the game is really going to be from what everyone dreams.

Guys, my family and I play XBLA games and I used to be a PC gamer only. The coolest thing to me about this console is that we all see the 360 as “the game” and computers have gone back to being for work. I’m older and can remember when 21 and rummy were the family game. Now, my brother, across the state from me and many of my friends are online playing each other on this “console.” Add to that this Fable II has my wife and I playing Pub games into the night and buying another 360 so we can play in each others game. 360′s are cheap compared to the computers I buy, especially since we found a refurb one at GameStop for $189. Way cool!

@ Duddee

Please explain exactly how console gaming is a ‘joke’. Start with explaining exactly how Uncharted, MGS4 and Gran Turismo are ‘jokes’ and bear in mind that I do most of my gaming on my high end PC.

I also don’t understand how console gaming s a “joke.” I was not around for the early days of console gaming, so I can not comment on what it has evolved in to, but I will say this: yes there seem to be a lot of kids playing on the consoles, but how many twelve and thirteen year old kids do you expect to be able to afford a two thousand dollar computer? One (e.g. Dudee) can not simply make blanket statements like that, it’s very naive and narrow minded. This whole Console vs. PC thing has gone on way too long, and honestly it’s rather annoying. PCs offer MANY of the more high-quality games available with some of the best gameplay around, but at a heavy price. And consoles provide a much higher percent of the population with affordable gaming, which, while perhaps not at the level of quality as some PC games, are able to be played on the same system for anywhere from three to six years (unlike PCs where it seems like I’m always behind the curve!). So as you see, there are positives and negatives to both, it just depends on preference and circumstance. So please people, allow me to be the voice of reason when I say this: grow up.

Exactly why did this need a 5 minute video to explain a 5 second exploit?

The only Lionhead Studios may do is just patch up the glitch so that no more of the “Ill-Rotten Gold” will be achieved

Whats with all the stupid pc elitists?

The glitch is there on purpose. Doesnt it make sense for a game involving you to make moral choices, to have its mini game spawn do the same?

All you nitwits with hoards of stolen gold, WILL be effected in the real game.

@bounce. Why the hell do you denounce console players? Put disk in, play is a lot easier than ing around with hours of patching and installing for some games (supcom, sins of a solar, crysis).
But then you miss out on so many settings and a higher level of complexity as the trade off. They are at least equal platforms.

In fact, I beleive it was hellgate london that was released at version 0.6, you could NOT get away with that on a console. PC games are often better, but equally often, worse. So STFU.
