What the hell happened?

Postby Raviolicaponi » Sat Aug 25, 2012 10:43 pm

Im going to mention this on the next show but I have no clue what just happened to me.

Last week while in the hospital I started up Gotham City Imposters on my laptop. I unlocked 2 achievements, one for completing the tutorial and one for playing a game. Niether achievement ever recorded on my xbox profile or on T.A. Today I played it on my desktop computer and the achievement for playing a game wouldnt pop again, nor would the finishing tutorial. I did get one for customizing my costume but thats it. The game only has 12 achievements worth 1000 GS but now I lost 2 achievements and can't unlock them again. What the hell happened?

No idea why GFWL games do that, but I've had it happen with both DiRT 3 and Fallout 3

The fix? The only thing that worked for me was to delete my Live account and re-download it (Fallout 3), and in some cases (DiRT 3), start a new save.

Since you've just started, I'd actually delete your save AND re-download your account. That *should* allow you to earn the achievements again.

how do you delete your LIve account? I'm using the GAmefly client to play Gotham city imposters. Would I delete the entire game off the harddrive or do i need to do more than that.

I haven't used GameFly's client with a GFWL title, but you shouldn't have to uninstall the game to delete your profile.

Once the game is launched you'll most likely be prompted to log in with an account. Instead, hit to "Home" key to back out of the Live overlay. Now hit the "Home" key again to bring up the same menu. This time you should have the options to either sign in, create a new profile, or delete profiles. Choose to delete your profile.

Once that's finished, sign in with your Live account again to have it synced (as if you're re-downloading a profile on your 360). After that you should be ready to attempt those achievements again. Hopefully they'll upload this time.

So it worked but even better than I thought. I deleted my profile and retrieved it again. Played the tutorial on still no achievement unlocked. So I popped open my profile and looked at the achievements again and both achievements were now there so I didnt have to unlock them again. They are time stamped too, so it shows on T.A as me getting my first two achievements on the 20th but starting the game for the first time on the 25th. Wierd
