View Full Version : Achievements broken?

07-13-2008, 03:25 AM

I just completed the "Nekhen" scenario, and got the "Succeed" screen, but was not given the achievement for it... Anyone else have the same problem?

If the developers read here, I think it is broken, or I am missing some requirement for the achievement to trigger.

I played the Bubastis Scenario, and zip, nada, no achievement.

I've beaten three of them now, and nothing.

The devs have responded on the official forums:

Hopefully we will see a patch soon.

I hope it, too.

Yay they work now

Doesn't work for me.

I first loaded a save file from before of a level on hard mode right before it finished. Then I started a new scenario on a different level in normal mode.

Neither worked.

One thing that isn't mentioned in the achievements but is vital to know is that you HAVE to do the levels in campaign mode, not in scenario mode.

When you start a new campaign the levels that you do in the campaign are the same as the ones you can do in scenario mode, so it is a bit unclear at first.

Oh, alright. I assumed "beat a scenario" meant I could click "Play Scenario" and beat one. I think they updated the descriptions after I read them a while ago.

I have CotN and the Alexandria expansion. The trouble I'm having is that when I complete a Campaign scenario for the achievement, at the place you'd normally get a notification that you'd unlocked the achievement, the game crashes.

My Steam client is up to date, so I'm unsure where to go from there. Any suggestions?

Edit: Here's an update on this. If I play in windowed mode, I finally get the achievement recorded (for Nekhen). However, when I click "proceed", it takes me back to the three scenarios at the beginning of the Campaign, one of which is again Nekhen.

If I play the Alexandria pack, it does not at all award the CotN achievements. If I play plain CotN, it does, but it crashes if I'm playing full screen, and I cannot, so far, advance past the first set of scenarios in the campaign.

To get credit for the Non-Alexandria scenarios, you need to be playing the non-Alexandria version of the game. Unfortunately, you can't load saved games created in the Alexandria version -- BUT there is ample supply of saved games at the Heavengames site if you feel cheated and don't want to play it over again.

My game doesn't crash, but it does freeze after I complete a scenario. As soon as the little golden "Achievement Unlocked" thing appears, the game returns to normal.

I just beat Pharos and didn't get the achievement :mad:

If you click the "Scenario Information" button and it shows the "Win" screen -- does that update the achievement for you?

I opened one of my old save game files (from 2005) of a campaign I'd already beaten, and when I did so, I got credit for the achievement! haha, oops :P

10-01-2010, 08:22 AM
completing it again with my savegames isn't working and HeavenGames doesn't files for Alexandria

does anyone have a Pharos savegame for me?

edit: hold on lemme try

10-01-2010, 08:27 AM
haha okay I tried "Keep Playing" and then "Scenario Information" and it did give me an achievement........


10-01-2010, 08:28 AM
hehe! Hooray! :D

10-01-2010, 08:30 AM
man I have no idea what to do now

maybe if I beat the last mission I'll get Alexandria and Pharos unlocked?

10-01-2010, 08:33 AM
I don't recall what the "proper" order is... but yeah, if you have any problems with achievements, the Scenario Information screen should properly update them. :)

10-01-2010, 08:33 AM
I can't find any Alexandria save files at HeavenGames - do you have any?

I apologize for any lack of elegance, simplicity or efficiency with my city designs. ;)

Worked! thank you thank you thank you thank you

your cities are way nicer than mine. here's my Pharos http://hotfile.com/dl/73050805/15f381f/jesseeee.ank.html

did you ever play Startopia? that was my favorite city sim

whoa you changed the game speed on this last one!! I was letting my maps sit all day while I was at work to build up food!!!

10-01-2010, 12:12 PM
Yeah, you can edit your INI file and change "Game Speed Max." I have mine set to 3000, but 30x speed isn't really much faster than 10x (the game isn't multi-threaded and can only calculate paths and such so fast).

10-01-2010, 12:24 PM
I just had a look at your saved game file -- yeah, there's always a hundred different ways to do any one thing.

With so many brick and papyrus makers, no wonder your food expenses were so high!

I base all my games on the following advice:

This is my first playthrough and I just completed Bubastis and instead of getting an achievement for that one, got the "Grand Campaign Completed"... so now I've got Nekhen and nothing else, besides the final one! :confused:
