Achievements bugged? - X-Box Version

Post by White_Shadow » Sun Aug 28, 2016 3:56 pm

Hi there!

As always when Slitherine brings out a turn based strategy game for the Xbox, its a must have for me, like this time, too.
Please keep on, sharing your games with the console community!

Star Hammer is very fun to play so far (Last mission completed was "The Bounce") and is somewhat addicting, so I posted a comment at the game hub in Xbox.

But I was wondering about two things. The first was, how the reinforcements works, cause after several missions I was at the same amount of 110 points. Now I´ve read the answer up in the forum, but maybe an explanation ingame would be nice too, for new players.

The other thing is, that two achievemens won´t pop up.

The first is for recruiting the comms officer, the second for recruiting the pilot. I´ve putted both of them into my crew roster and the comms officer was fighting along in several missions and is at rank 3. Why does the achievement dont trigger like Squid Hunter oder The One-Two which worked smoothly?

Thanks! :)

Hi White_Shadow

Reinforcements : There are number of factors, including progress through the campaign (specifically, how many chapters have been completed), and warscale bonuses, that impact on the total amount of points you have to build your fleet. The points available to "buy" new reinforcements is based on the points cap, minus the "value" of the current fleet. You can free up points by dismissing a ship (which is permanent, so use this carefully), or by progressing through the campaign further.

Achievements : That's not good to hear, we'll need to investigate that.

Cheers, Paul

Hey,

first of all i would like to say, that it is a real great game. Nice to see xbox is geting some good strategy games finally.

I encountered the same achievement problems. All recruit achievements, most mission related and some others won`t unlock even though i fulfilled the requirements for them.

In addition there is another Problem with saving the game. After mission 17 i wasn't able to save my game during mission anymore, only at mission select screen.

Hope you guys can sort this out.

There is a save function during the missions?!
Lol, I only saved between the missions :lol:

Thanks for the hint!

Nevertheless, I will wait for the bug fix and play on, when I can get the achievements ^^

MinionDave: Can you provide any more info? What's happening when you try, does it not respond, crash, something else?

Thanks, Paul

Hey Paul,

no crashes, there is just no response at the save file selection screen. I can click on a file but nothing happens.
On starting position in a mission, before i make my first move, saving is still possible.

Thank you.

Hi,

As blacklab says, this is proving to be a little bit difficult to pin down! It's involved us getting access to the Xbox back end data to check what players have achieved and we're now doing a compare against our expectations and what we've been able to download.

There is something wrong, and we're sorry about that and looking to fix it. Thanks to you for reporting it!

Looks like the trophies for the NA PS4 version of the game is also bugged. Any fix planned?

Thanks in advance.
