You mess around with the console any?

If you have cheats enabled (going through developer commentary enables cheats btw) in the console then achivements don't register

im almost certain i didnt mess with the console, and ive played the "commentary story" mode, but was playing in a normal game while (not) earning the achievements

I also am missing some achievements which i am certain i have earned! eg. Fratricide (killing the cube). I have played the level multiple times and i do not have cheats enabled. Probably a bug they need to press out.

yeah. i've done the long jump thing for like 10 minutes, and i still haven't gotten the achievement. happened with terminal velocity too. the rest of my achievements are working fine though...

One time after playing, I noticed that Steam said "NO CONNECTION" down at the bottom, however, I could still browse around the Steam store. Lo and behold, I didn't receive any of the achievements that I should have. Just redo the achievements, and before you quit out of Portal, make sure that Steam is connected.

I have beaten Portal 3 times now. And in game it gives me the Heartbreaker achievement, but in my Steam Profile the achievement does not show up. Other achievements do show up. How do I get Heartbreaker to register on my profile?

I'm playing on a Mac:
Model: Mac Mini
Processor: 2GHz Intel Core Duo
RAM: 4GB
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce 9400 256MB VRAM

I'm currently in the room with a partially-destroyed GlaDOS, and the only achievement I have is Lab Rat. Shouldn't I have at least received Fratricide by now? Or am I to assume from this that my companion cube is still alive (and doing science), somewhere out there? :D

I'm playing on a Mac, running Mac OS X 10.6.2 (Portal says it needs 10.6.3, but 10.6.3 doesn't work on my Mac, and Portal does, apart from this one thing.) I'm pretty sure I was online when I killed my cube.

I just tried to view the achievements from the options within Portal (as opposed to in the Steam thing) and it said I must be online to view or unlock achievements. It certainly looks like Steam thinks I'm online , but Portal doesn't. I'll make sure I restart both before I actually finish the game, in case it makes a difference, since I'd like the Heartbreaker achievement at least.

I've detached countless security cameras but I still don't have Camera Shy. When I look in the progress it shows I've only detached 2 cameras.


Oops, I just realized that this is a Mac forum. Found it through Google, not through steam home page. I'm on a PC. But still!

I've completed 6/6 advanced chambers, but the achievement is displayed as locked on my Steam, even though the progress bar is complete.

it happens. sometimes achievements will get unlocked in-game but not in steam.

when this happens, there's no way to fix it, unless valve resets the achievements completely. you'll just have to live with it.

Achievements don't work. It's supposed to be this way.

You need to detach them all in one playthrough. That might be why. I got this achievement just fine, as long as I detached them all in the same playthrough.
