AVA and Black Rose

Hello! I've been recently trying to obtain The Black Rose, since it's a very nice reskin, and I've been having some trouble to get it to register that I've completed the achievement. I've installed AVA, and I've played several games, and don't mind the game, but none of the achievements have carried across to my steam account, so I haven't received my item in TF2. I sent an email to Steam Support a week ago today, asking if there was anything I could do to get the item, despite my being Australian, and I haven't heard back from them. I sent another message just saying I've tried to play the game, so I'll see how this goes. Just wanted to know if there was anything I could do to get this achievement to work, thanks!

Wasn't AVA removed from Steam? I'm fairly certain you can't get the achievements for it any longer, at least not legitimately.

I just searched google for it ( Google Search ) and there was a Steam Starter Pack for AVA last updated for Feb 18 2013, but when I go to it, it tells me "Not available in my region".

Manages your achievements, obviously.

And by that I mean it can lock/unlock any achievement for any F2P game or any game that you own, and as long as you don't have any games running at the time, there are little to no repercussions to doing so, but use at your own risk.

Wouldn't that mean someone could just activate all of their achievements on a game? Has Valve said anything about it? I'd rather try and go through Support first rather then use this. Maybe as a last resort, because I've already earnt the achievement, it just hasn't gone through...

Yes they could.
No they haven't.
If you have the 'chieve but no item, contacting support would probably be the best option, as SAM probably couldn't help you.

Nah, I don't even have the achievement on my Steam account, so I'm not sure. I suppose I could just use SAM to get that one achievement; keep some proof that I've played the game and should have earnt the achievement just incase Steam/Valve has something to say. I've earnt the item, so I should get it.

Don't bother with AVA, it's a waste of time. If you want the knife, use SAM. You won't get in trouble.

It does have a rootkit (Think of it as a keylogger that hides the key inputs and encrypts them before anything else can read them) as part of the anti-cheat system in the game, but it's not nearly as bad as people call it out to be, and it can also easily be removed manually

I really wouldn't use SAM right now.
Valve will soon do something against all the "gibetuxpls" users, I think there's a chance they will also punish other people that use 3rd party programs on steam.
