Achievements not working?
Hello, I have a problem. I start up the binding of isaac like any other steam game, but I can't open the steam thing with shift+tab. It doesn't unlock achievements, either. Please help, I am on a mac btw.

The achievements apparently don't normally work on Mac, but I did a quick look on Youtube and found this quick little vid that apparently shows you how to get them to pop up for you.

I'm on Windows, and have to go to windowed mode to access chats/steam client...unfortunately, whenever I exit full screen to do this, I can no longer use F to get back in or out of full. Also, I imagine this doesn't happen for you (seems you've launched the game more than once), but my achievements don't log until the next time I launch the game. Hopefully the link above has shown you how to fix your acheivement problem already.

achievments show up next time when you play game and when you start the basement in next game again

@Nuke and Bezuss I don't have a good windows computer, only a windows xp missing a keyboard and a mouse. So the video didn't help.
@Bug I've played it more thatn once.

Also, Yes, I do know I should have some achievements because I unlocked Eve and The Yum Heart girl, (forgot her name) But I don't have any achievements.

I have the same problem. The gameplay and unlockables in the game are not affected, but because we are on a Mac, we cannot get the achievements to show/unlock. I asked the same question yesterday :P

As bugi said, achievements are checked when you launch the game, so that is when they unlock. I am on Windows though.

I'm on windows and have the same problem, so far it hasn't cost me anything only I can't Shift+Tab in game and achievements dont pop till the next time I start up the game.

@ BeardedFool and G3N3S1S
Once again, I've played it multiple times and I still don't have any achievements.
So does this mean I wont get any achievements?

You won't get any achievments without loading your save file onto a windows computer. The game's achievments are in an .exe file that macs can't run. This is a known issue, but it doesn't look like they're planning on fixing it. If you put your save file on a windows computer and run the game, all the achievements you've earned will pop up. I'm pretty sure this is the only known fix.

Well, if I were to use wine or winebottler or something, would that work?
Pilieser Jan 20, 2013 @ 6:16am 
Yes that does work, after I complete some achievements I just launch Steam using WINE and then I open BOI and all achievements are updated.

I find that after i have closed the game and re-opened it, I get the achievements from my last session.
Pavlov's Dong Jan 20, 2013 @ 9:09am 
I'll try that, Piliser.
And I'm not even going to say anything, Clrquis.

I didn't need to make any changes to get the game working with Wine. I was just able to install both without any problems with OSX 10.7 and 10.8 the game performance is pretty good you could even decide to just play the game in wine all the time. I'll just run the OSX version and whenever I think I have a lot of achievements pending I just start it quickly in wine open/close the game and all done ;-)
