"Dream Team" and "Achiever"
I know there have been a ton of threads about this same problem, but when I searched the board, pretty much all threads were back from May and April. So I just had to ask: at this point, has anyone found a fix to get these achievements to work?

Me and my friend made absolutely sure to not miss a single thing in our playthrough, and after finishing the game the achievement tracker in-game DOES say that we have obtained Dream Team and Achiever, but the corresponding Steam achievements still haven't triggered. Any way to get them to trigger or is trying to 100% this game ultimately a lost cause?

Same here! I got The Achiever and The Hoarder in-game, took me a while to get it, but Steam didn't unlock it back then. I rage quited and deleted the gaem after that. Now with these trading cards I installed it again and still didn't achieve it in Steam...

well, you could try to replay again.. i have the exact same issue with both achievements.. i wish i would have made a copy of my savegame, before finishing the last mission. as it seems the moderator of this game discussions has stopped supporting some time ago, we shouldn't expect any help from development side.

Replaying won't work, cause the game already registered it as completed unfortunately, I tried that already...

thats bad, thought i were reading it worked for someone else in another discussion. maybe he deleted his savegame.
i have sent a e-mail to kochmedia support about this issue right now.

I tried deleting my save game and everything I could think of... I even tried replaying with another character, but it just don't register anymore, cause the game already registered it. It's Steam who's acting up... they should fix it...

so you weren't able to reset your ingame achievement progress by deleting your savegame ?
Siha ❥ Jul 23, 2013 @ 1:16am 
Exactly, it didn't do anything...

LOL, I have sent this email months ago, got the same reply...
Marius Jul 25, 2013 @ 1:33am 
alright, the problem seems to appear on every platform anyways and on the previous dead island aswell, so it's pretty obvious that it won't get fixed.
Siha ❥ Jul 25, 2013 @ 1:37am 
Well that totally sucks!

i deleted my achievement progress and played again for those achievements, this method definitely works. its already described in another thread somewhere, just delete the "default.prr" file located in this folder: \Steam\userdata\*******\91310\remote\out\profiles. this basically resets your achievement progress and challenge progress, just make a copy of this file before so you can restore it if you like.
Siha ❥ Jul 31, 2013 @ 1:04pm 
Mmm, maybe I will give it a try sometime *again*... I already did that and nothing got deleted... But maybe they changed that in the meantime. It's like 3 months ago.

i forgot to mention that you have to disable steam cloud before you start the game, because otherwise your savegame gets restored. you have to disable steam cloud for dead island and for dead island riptide, for this you have to right click on the game in your libary, click properties, updates and uncheck the steamcloud box
Siha ❥ Jul 31, 2013 @ 2:40pm 
I kinda never use Steam cloud...
