Ghostbusters Video Game - Player Awards, Ranks, and Achievements

 By Paul Rudoff on Jun. 15, 2009 at 7:59 PM , Categories: Games
Rooting through the files on the game disc of the PC version of Ghostbusters: The Video Game, I found a file named language.pod, which is contained inside setup\data2.cab. This file contains all of the text used in the game, along with text transcriptions of the audio.

This post will list all of the Player Awards, Player Ranks, and Achievements listed inside this file. I believe that all of this relates to multiplayer. However, it should be noted that although this information came from a file on the PC game disc, the PC version does not have any multiplayer components.

Send Atari a support email, ask them if they plan to fix these problems/omissions.


If enough people email them, they’ll be forced to respond in some fashion.

THANKS! Great post, this will help a lot! I’m hoping more information comes out because a lot of the 360 achievements are glitched

I own Ghostbusters on PS3 and whilst playing online, it glitched and crashed. Now when I play, it doesn’t add the money to my Multiplayer statistics and I can’t go up in ranks either! Singleplayer works fine.
I’ve tried deleting both the game and save data but nothing works.
