This achievement is not unlocking for me for some reason. I have done all I can with the Initiation Station as well as downloaded my guy in the game and nothing.

I got SO FRUSTRATED with this! I had created my characters thru the Initiation Station before the game came out. Online it shows my characters are there. In game, it says that there is nothing to download. I finally had to break down a create a person from ones they give you. Achievement unlocked. I wasnt able to customize my character to the fullest, but got my points.

You probably do have insert the online pass code, as it has to react with the servers.

Apparently, I've already got a THQ account registered to my gamertag (which I don't) so I ccan't go and quickly grab this achievement. Dam...

You don't even have to go to a clothing store in the game. You can Upload your character during the character creation/customization right after completing the very first mission. Just start the creation process, go down to "Character Gallery", and select "Upload Character". Was the second achievement I got for this game, quick and easy.

Comment #24 by lilpuffy90
Wednesday, June 06, 2012 @ 02:56:05 PM

If you still cannot get the achievement no matter what you do, try starting a new game and when you create your character at the beginning, upload it there. It was the only way it worked for me after restarting the game/xbox, reloading the game, downloading/uploading multiple times at clothing stores, even initiation station download/uploads wasn't working.
P.S. You can download and upload a character you made thats in the community in the character creator after the first heist mission and it'll work.

Dear friends, you wanna hear a joke?
i bought the german version of this game (XBox call it "Saints Row 3 BRD", but i dont knew it, because it use a normal cover), and have 1290gs now.
This is the last achievement that i need. BUT, and here is the joke, i can NOT
use the passkey. because it ONLY works with a german xbl-account, and i am austrian.

yay, pwnd.

Guess this doesn't work anymore as THQ's servers more than likely have been taken down.

Comment #31 by delta3xray
Monday, October 21, 2013 @ 09:45:22 AM

This was the last achievement I needed but also the easiest. All you have to do is take any saved game you have, run down to any Planet Saints, and select "Character Gallery." No computer necessary, you can create an online account in-game, in the store, then select "Upload character" and boom, you got it.

All I'm getting is that it can't connect to servers is this still obtainable?

Comment #33 by CptRexKramer

@ 32

Don't think this works anymore. Just tried to register at the website, and it's not letting me log on, which kind of pisses me off. If I'd have know I could not get a full achievement score on this game, I wouldn't have bothered to download it. It's really not that good.

Comment #34 by Draco Mudonis

this is not possible to get anymore

Comment #35 by Griffiths316
Monday, May 19, 2014 @ 08:02:57 PM

This really sucks that this will be the only achievement in the whole game that isn't possible to get!! especially when the website still has saints row the 3rd on it!

Comment #36 by Wolverine674
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 @ 01:17:50 AM

@34 & @35 This is possible to get. I just got it last night. Signing up via the website didn't work for some reason. I kept getting the error that I didn't have an account. And trying to connect through the game itself also didn't work.
The only way it worked for me was to load up SR3 Initiation Station and it will ask you to sign in or register for an account. I created a new account, it linked correctly as I was able to log in to the SR website. Then load up the SR3 game, go to a clothing store and select "Character Gallery" and, if it worked, it'll say an account has been found and ask you to log in. Upload your character and achievement unlocked. At least, that's how it finally worked for me.
Hopefully this works for anyone having issues.

Comment #37 by Griffiths316
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 @ 05:32:45 PM

@36 I still get the unable to connect to server message using that method. weirdly i also cannot log into the website when at home.

Comment #38 by CptRexKramer
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 @ 07:24:38 PM

@36 @37

Yeah, I tried #36's method, and still no luck. Just like #37, I keep getting the unable to connect to server message.

Comment #39 by Griffiths316
Tuesday, May 20, 2014 @ 09:43:14 PM

Just tried this again and its worked, cannot explain that.

Comment #40 by Airjordan z23z
Wednesday, May 21, 2014 @ 08:34:21 PM

#36's method does work.
just create account from main menu then load into game and clothing shop character gallery, upload and boom it will unlock. server may be down sometimes

Comment #41 by SonOfJohnson
Sunday, May 25, 2014 @ 03:55:18 AM

Foe me the THQ site would not work, saints row site would not work, but making an account via the game main menu in "community" then starting the game, going to the clothing place, then uploading the character worked first time for me.

Any help at all inbox me on here or add me on live - SonOfJohnson

Comment #42 by 1moretry
Thursday, June 19, 2014 @ 02:33:32 PM

Thanks all, but especially lilpuffy90. This was annoying me to no end.

THQ site let me register, confirm, and log in but no joy connecting in game through clothing store or community.

SaintsRow site let me register but never confirmed, though it still let me log in but again not in the game.

I eeven tried direct registration from in game via the Community menu but no luck there either.

Reply 24 above by lilpuffy90 was what finally worked for me. I just started a new game on Normal diff, ran through the intro (Bank Heist ?), got to the Customize Character screen, hit A to the menu and then selected Character Gallery and Upload Character. Filled out registration there and the achievement dropped.

Comment #43 by Ar2kill
Tuesday, July 08, 2014 @ 02:14:34 AM

I can't get it. Dow anybody have any advice? This is my problem. Everytime I try to upload the system tells me there is a THQ ID associated with my gamertag I try to enter but tells me it is wrong (user and password) I tried to change the user, since I created a new, but I can't modify it in the game. I did the one replaying the first misiĆ³n etc but it didn't worked. Thanks for the help

You can still get is achievement. I tried everything all day to get this one.
I got it by going to a saints story and making an account on the Xbox itself and uploaded.

Comment #45 by BIONICxTIG3R
Friday, July 25, 2014 @ 04:45:30 PM

I wasn't able to get this achievement, but what I did was deactivate my linked THQ account, and I was able to make a new one.

Friday, September 05, 2014 @ 06:03:36 PM

Went in the store, went to upload created and thq account on the game self and got the achievment within a minutes, no problems..

Comment #47 by KaDi 86
Wednesday, September 10, 2014 @ 10:53:31 AM

Hardest achievement in the game.
spent 15 minutes figuring out how to get it to work.
Had to delete my THQ-account and create a new one on the xbox.
Thanks to #45 for the suggestion.

Comment #48 by JurassicShark
Tuesday, September 23, 2014 @ 11:40:59 PM

Create an account at the start menu then try uploading. Still works by the way, and I really hope games stop with community upload achievements.

Comment #49 by Glidebent
Wednesday, November 12, 2014 @ 06:20:32 PM

Tried for a week now. Every time i try to make an account ingame, it says the servers are not availible.

Did they take them down, or is there another trick to this.

Comment #50 by RyanTapIsTall
Friday, November 21, 2014 @ 08:16:14 AM

I messaged Saints Row on FB and they said they are updating servers and should be back up and they will be making an announcement on the SR Facebook when everything is back up and running

Comment #51 by BAE10x
Saturday, January 17, 2015 @ 08:39:26 PM

Im confused, when I go to character gallery it says it found a THQ account linked to my gamertag and automatically puts in the username. I don't remember making a account so I had to change my password on Then I tried putting in my new password on SR3 and it says its incorrect. It also says to go to saints to change your password which doesn't make sense if this requires THQ account ( and are two different accounts). I don't remember making an account on SR3 either so I asked for password change and it never sends me a new password... This achievement should be simple yet its very difficult and confusing. I hate online achievements -.-

Comment #52 by BAE10x
Saturday, January 17, 2015 @ 08:43:21 PM

^ I have changed my password for multiple times, waited several days before using it on SR3 again, and it still doesn't work. I also still cant get a new password sent to me for Is there anyway to completely redo/remake both accounts and re-link them to my gamertag? I cant change the username they keep automatically putting in for SR3.

Comment #53 by Chibisonikku
Friday, January 30, 2015 @ 11:44:23 AM

I have a problem with this too. I've created an account on computer since the game says there's an error while creating it. However it says that the password doesn't match the account when I try to log in.

Comment #55 by Victor Delta
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 @ 09:39:42 AM

If we try to register online, which site do we use- or THQ? I figured it would be THQ, but looking around, theres no mention of SR3 anywhere.

Comment #57 by DJMikey80
Tuesday, March 03, 2015 @ 07:18:40 PM

I hate achievements like this.. Even more than the achievements, you get for "Team Deathmatch" type multi-player modes. Which I never play.

It's different when you choose not to 100% the game because you don't like certain modes of play.

But devs need to stop stick luck based achievements in games, along with achievements attached to services that are going to be terminated when the sequel is released..

Comment #58 by Darealmarkmyers
Wednesday, May 20, 2015 @ 01:35:23 PM

Well this is bullcrap. I'm sitting at 79 of 80 achievements and 1290/1300 and I'll never have this game completed. They need to fix this or remove this achievement or something.

The web site functionality has been restored for this game and SRIV.

If you can't seem to connect in-game, i suggest going to "" and create youre account there. After that go in-game and just log in and share this will work anytime.

If you do not get it, you'll have to delete your save and start a new game. Make the first mission and when you are editing your character UP it and the achievement will come.
