Im going to write a HUGE wall of text and i hope your ready.
I have searched for A MONTH the solution of my problem and i didnt find it.
Im ready to give 30 euros to anyone able to unlock thoses achievement , legit or modding because im starting to become crazy .
Im a achievement completionist . I LOVE to finish my game to 1000G or Maximum Gamerscore.
Last month i bought a computer to play GFWL games and add achievements to my gamerscore.
* I Know GFWL is dead ( no more digital stores ) but you STILL can get the achievements if you OWN a physical copy of the game.
I played the Game Bioshock 2 , i got the Original 1000 Gamerscore points without any trouble .
Then i realised that i couldnt get the DLC achievement because the store was down , so no way to get the dlc " legit " .
I Find a way to get thoses 3 DLC to work on a russian forum , it was pretty easy : Just had to copy the games files, make a shortcut on your users.ini files in order to open the first map of each dlc. And it was working Perfectly.
The russian way to make dlc work for gfwl
So , thoses 3 DLC works but ONLY two of them got achievements , for some reason minerva den dlc achievement arent unlocking. Not just one but every single achievement of the minerva den dlc is locked.
When im talking about unlocking , i mean the legit way. I have done all the prerecquires for all achievement and none of them popped for Minerva den.
The way the dlc got installed was the same for Minerva den , Metro map pack and Protector trials but for some reason achievements arent there for minerva den.
I Then tried to MOD my DLC achievement using GFWL achievement manager but EVEN with a modding programm ( latest version) , i still cant get thoses achievements to unlocks. I got an error saying " Error cant write achievements " .
I find someone else on this website with the exact same problem for another game :
Concerning modding , I also tried to use " le fluffie " program to mod the dlc achievement , but its not working with gfwl achievements. ( You can mod them but not connect your profile to live after that )
In fact there is only one modding program for GFWL and its not working with the minerval den dlc as i explained before.
The only difference between thoses DLC is that Minerva den isnt region free , at least this thread made me realise this :
This Guy cant get the achievement for Mineva den but he is able to get thoses related to the others DLC.
Just like me but back in 2014.
I then started to think that , maybe the DLC and The BASE GAME has to be from the same region. Or the Dlc recquires some kind of Key check before you could unlock achievement .
I tried with the RUssian version of the game with the dlc on a NTSC location : No achievement
I tried with the International Version , with Us Gamertag no achievement.
I tried with The international Version with a PAL gamertag no achievement .
After day of research , i find out that Minerva den dlc were glitchy when first released :
Last but not least i realised that the my game screen on the gfwl menu shows only 60 achievements for Bioshock 2 instead of 68. However , when clicking on the achievement list detail i see the 68 achievements.
Each time i close the game and restart it , it will show 60 achievement ( instead of 68 ) on the " my games " menu , showing that minerva den DLC achievement are not counted by the game. Like they didnt exist.
If i redownload my gamertag without exiting bioshock 2 , it will then show the correct numbers of achievements on the " my game " menu.
Tried to unlock them legit / modding after getting the right number displayed : Still nothing. No achievement for minerva den.
It’s not related to Patching the game with a title update , because i patched my games ( both international version and russian verison ) with the last patch and achievement still not unlocking . ( Tried 3 differents 1.5 patch )
i tried the GFWL achievement manager with both version of the game also , ( GFWL version , Steam version with GFWL …) Nothing worked. Nothing . i have tried everything i could in one month and i didnt find the solution.
I want thoses achievements , leggit , modding i dont care but i want them . Im sick of looking for the solution.
Im ready to give 30 euros ( using paypal ) to anyone able to unlock minerva den dlc achievement in 2018, and im not joking.
