Buggy stars achievements?
I've got 4 stars in all levels but the three stars related achievements won't pop up. Is it buggy or am I missing something?

kathedral has 3 levels inside it, which arn't displayed on the overworld. you might have overlooked these and celebreated prematurely like I did xD at least it shouldn't be buggy since I was able to get it

Oh right, that's most probably it then :) I'll try it tomorrow and will report back.

Indeed you were right, it were the last 3 levels in Cathedral so I got the achievements now, thanks :) I think the developers should actually make this apparent on the level select map.

Good suggestion. We'll see if we can get it in the next patch. Congrats on the achievement!

Thanks :)

I'm a speedrunner myself (I've got several runs on SpeedDemosArchive. By the way steeh, are you still thinking of submitting a run to SDA? Would be cool) but I actually needed to put some more effort in getting 4 stars in all levels, unlike most other games, so it felt like I really needed to work for it. Good job! :)

I've got another little suggestion. I once got stuck in a level because I ate a block with Gluttony and there was a little space between a door and one of those trampoline pads, I was standing in this little space facing the door and I spit out the block and it got in the door, then I crouched and the block was on top of me and I was stuck, I couldn't move anymore and the block did not go away so then I needed to restart the whole level. How about something like a "Restart checkpoint" (Which simply kills you so that you respawn) option in the in-game menu?

HAHAHA! you didn't try to glitch through that door did you? XD i got stuck down there all the time because I was hoping to get it glitching :P
about submitting, as a speedrunner you know that randomness is the worst thing in games. unfortunately the enemy AI not only gives you tons of RNG, they work against you really destructively ^^ I usually go for deaths to reset their patterns if i dont trigger them perfectly and that makes me unhappy with the runs overall... didn't get the motivation to just grind it out since the further you get the easier it gets to get screwed over (last world, first stage is this stupidly long aircraft fight for example)..
maybe if you post a full run that gets too close or even beyond my record I'll get the craving to do it ;)

cheers steeh

edit: oh yea and this is the other reason i dont want to grind it out XD its a jump with 3 tricks, each one pixel perfect at this spot ->http://www.twitch.tv/steeh00/c/1880974

Yeah I was trying to glitch through the door :P

And yes randomness sucks. About that first stage in the last world (And lots of other combat parts), I found it very easy and fast to eat an enemy with Gluttony and then just spit him out right away (Unless health is needed) into a pit. Pretty fast enemy disposal method, especially handy against guys with shields in front of them. But in that stage sometimes enemies (With certain orb shields) won't come down... I had an enemy once with a Wrath shield and he just wouldn't come down no matter what I did, very annoying.

I don't think I'll try a run myself, nowadays I'm not very busy with speedrunning anymore (I still have the desire to get back at it though but I'm not sure when that will happen) and I'm just playing games normally all the time ;)

Cool stuff in the video :)
