... even if nobody sees or attacks me?

If the alarms goes off because of the failed hack attempt, yes.

Edit: Sometimes you're better off disconnecting if you get detected too soon.

So I've played three entire playthroughs, each one solely to get the Foxiest of the Hounds achievement. I just finished my third attempt, and I still haven't got the achievement. No one ever sees me. I reload if anyone (including cameras, turrets, and robots) even gets suspicious. I never even killed anyone, and I only used takedowns when absolutely necessary, being sure to stash the body in a nearby airvent, ao that another guard wouldn't find it 20 minutes later when I was in another area. I never failed any hacks, or destroyed any robots, turrets, or cameras. I saved and reloaded a lot, so not a single person ever saw me, except for the bosses.
I've done this THREE TIMES! Why the heck can't I get this achievement? Is it glitched or something? NO ONE SAW ME FOR THE ENTIRE GAME!

Are the people you are using takedowns on seeing you before you take them out? I know I have seen them go hostile right before I take them out, that counts as being seen.

I only used takedowns to knock out guards from behind. I only used the takedown like 3 times the whole game.

Also, it doesn't matter if you're seen. If there is only one guard in an area, and he sees you a millisecond before you take him out, it doesn't matter. However, if there are other guards, they are ALL somehow INSTANTLY alerted... But no, no one saw me. AT ALL. And yes, I'm sure, because I've played the game freaking six times.

No idea... the achievement is certainly possible to get. I got it on my second playthrough. But there's no way of telling where you went wrong.

That's exactly the reason why they could have implemented STATS!

Things as "times alerted enemies" and "times spotted by this or that" would be very helpful.

I hope you will get the achievement next time, good luck!

How do you know if you get Ghost or Smooth Operator for "Place the C4 on Administrator Wang's Desk" since that level ends w/ a cutscene? I did get Ghost and Smooth Op for the midpoint, getting the package, of course.

I ended up trading the game in. I beat it seven times, each time trying to get Foxiest. Never got it. It must be glitched or something, because I KNOW I was never seen... Oh well.

You don't unfortunately. But I've been watching your vids and I know you won't have a problem =)

(I even mentioned you in one of my vids)

So if a guard spots me I lose any chance of getting the foxiest of hounds achievement even if I stop them from sounding the alarm. I just started my second run and during the tutorial mission the guards saw me but I knocked them out with gas.

Also I am trying to hit three birds with one stone. I'm going for the pacifist, foxiest of the hounds, and legend achievement all in one play through, Too ambitious?

Guards being suspicious, alarmed or even hostile will not ruin your foxiest achievements. Being briefly seen by turrets or robots won't either. You don't need the ghost bonus for foxiest. Oh and its not too ambitious. Watch Dracorats Walkthrough on youtube. They are very good and he takes his time telling you WHY he does things the way he does.

Thanks for the guide Dracorats, really helpful. I'm on my third playthrough now trying to get this achievement. I'm certain I did it right the second time but didn't get it so now following your guide and see if that helps.

i need help.

trying to do foxiest (already did passivist).

stuck at police station.

im going to list in as much detail as i can what i did, for some reason i cannot get it to say smooth operator.

1- i go to the front of the police station, and stack a box that i find in the dead end on top of a dumpster to get over the fence into the back alley.
2-open the storage unit for the bracelet and ebooks for side quest.
3-put box under fire escape, hack door panel, once in, maneuver past camera (did not alert suspicious), around corner, past cop leaning on rail, and into duct, into first room, read emails on computer, back out the way i came (this time cop paroling, but did not see me).
4-up fire escape ladder to roof, in duct, open door, taser guard and grab pocsec, enter code on first door to right, enter duct in room, go into next room, hack computer, read emails for side quest, back out the way i came (dragging body into duct, and tasering second time for insurance.)
5-down fire escape, into sewers, hack police door, maneuver past camera (did not alert suspicious,) disable lasers, hack morgue panel, get chip. i get ghost, but do not get smooth operator.

-------------
second strategy.

same as before, only skipping the side quest objectives, instead straight into sewers to get chip.
-----------
third strategy.

1-same thing to get into back alley.
2-up firescreen to roof.
3-maneuver my way to stairs winding down, and past the patrolling guard on main floor, into duct in bathroom, down other stairs to morgue area, wait for bottom level patrolling guard to walk past lasers, and slip in behind him, after he leaves room, hack morgue panel and get chip.

still get ghost, no smooth operator.

I did not get smooth operator there either but still got my foxiest achievment at the end. If you are 100% certain that you did not cause any alarm you are fine.
