Problems with Lambda Locator.
Hello there, i'm trying to get 100% achievement completion for some of my singleplayer games, but there is a "little" problem with Lambda Locator, the achievement counter for it is stuck in six, and whenever i found the lambda locations, there is no achievemet pop-up and the counter still the same, i looked for the solution of this in the internet and i found some people who said that deleting/renaming gamestate.txt would fix the problem, however, i have no such file in my hl2 folder, i would like to know if anyone know how to fix this problem, thanks a lot.

I have issues with the achivements too. Whenever I get close to completing some of them(including lambda locator), they reset their progress.

Anyway, I think "gamestate.txt" doesn't exist anymore because of the steampipe update. If the posts that advised the deletion of such a file were made before, say, the 2nd or 3rd quarter of 2013, they're out of date.

I recently went back and played Half-life 2 for the umpteen time to relive great gaming moments as well as earn the achievements. I didn't have any achievements for Half-life 2, either my achievements had been erased or they didn't have achievements when the game first came out, either way I wanted to play it again and gain the achievements in the process. But somehow my Lambda Locator is messed up, a few didn't register even though I used the Lamda Locator guide to grab all of them. I beat the game and atleast 4 didn't register, as well as the Anchor's Aweigh. Kind of annoying so I went on google and did some research.

Some people say to delete the gamestate.txt but I couldn't find it either so I did a complete search of C: for it and found it under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-life 2\hl2\ Well I deleted it but now when I try to go back to my save game I still don't get the achievement. Loading up another game and trying to grab one of the Lambda locations just pops up 1/45. Good grief, not going to do this all over again. I love getting achievements but these damn buggy ones really take out the fun of it.

Have completed all HL2 Archiv's and last one was Lambda Locator, have them all, but in my steam games it's seems be still "Locked +1". In-Game look's like i have 100% of all achiv's. Strange thing :) Reinstalled game and Sync HL2 progress to the Steam and still nothin.
