Help with unlocking achievements + backing up saves on vanilla (no WotL)
Hi all, I've finally gotten Dark Boy on vanilla TBoI after 60+ hours of trying.
First off, I'd like to know how I get the Steam achievement to unlock because it didn't for me and I'd love to have it after all the effort I've put in. I used to have some sort of fixed executable called Achievement Util that made the rounds on the Steam forums before WotL came out, but I guess it got patched over by Steam some time ago, so how do you fix achievements now? Of course, worst case scenario I'll use an achievement unlocker or whatever... At least I deserve it.
Also, how do you back up saves? I'd like to know that before trying to screw with unlocking achievements.

I'd like to be done with this so I can unlock Mama's Boy (which should be a cakewalk now that I have two extra levels to work with) and finally activate WotL so I catch up with y'all for the upcoming remake... So thanks in advance!

Yes I can, and thank you for linking the guide, it worked! Had to redownload that FlashAchievements patch. Must've missed this.

I'd still like some help on backing up my save if possible, in case I do something dumb and/or Steam Cloud fails me. Can't seem to find any guides on this either.

nice glad it worked the easy way , and its funny you ask for savefile i was checking this before i read ur msg and i found this

so its a good idea to do a backup file of so.sol cuz you can lost 4 secrets ingame and its a mess to fix them very complicated

Thanks for all the help, I backed that and the non-executable files in the game directory up now, so hope that works if something goes wrong.
nop , the savefile are just so.sol and Serial.txt

Gotcha, though I have plenty of Dropbox space for now so wasting some is not an issue.
Thanks for the help and hope you keep having fun with TBoI! I know I will.
