Achievements unlocking?
OK, so, according to my in-game logs, I have over 200,000 credits from a police license, I've captured 18 ships, I'm at Wholesaler rank and above Professional... and I have no achievements besides the Crash Course one. Is there any help for making these achievements unlock properly?

Do you have any mods (aside from the bonus software package) installed? ANY mods/scripts/new ships/whatever and you won't be able to unlock achievements. Basically your game gets a *MODIFIED* tag which disables achievement earning. Unfortunately, you're also out of luck for earning said achievements via a *MODIFIED* save. You'll have to start fresh if you want em. :<

No, straight Steam install. I haven't downloaded or even looked at any scripts or mods yet, since I'm still just exploring vanilla.

I haven't unlocked any of the alternate starting characters, either, except for the Teladi Trafficker.

Hmm... Did you check your pilot info for the *MODIFIED* tag? Default key is "P", then scroll around till you find it.
Wraith_Magus Oct 16, 2012 @ 11:45pm 
Apparently, yes. It says *MODIFIED* at the bottom of the pilot status, even though I never did anything of the sort.

I tried registering at the Egosoft forums, but they apparently don't let you post in the bug forum without special permissions...

EDIT: But I did suddenly unlock all the alternate starts that I should have...

That's balls. I know how ya feel. I ran through the ENTIRE terran-aldrin plot and was sitting approx 70+ hours into a playthrough and the LAST. PART. OF. THE. ENTIRE. PLOTLINE. bugged out and wouldn't let me pick up the diplomats. I ended up biting the bullet and starting a new game so that I could get that achievement. Now I'm busy working on the Hub. "Could you get me a few things?" BIGGEST UNDERSTATEMENT IN VIDEO GAME HISTORY RIGHT THERE.

They require you to enter a cd key as proof of purchase before you can post in the tech support forum.

In other news, antivirus can also make your game appear modified as well.

How is one supposed to enter a CD key if you purchased the game through Steam, then?

Right click your game, select 'Register your game'.

Sorry for the nekro, I know this is an old thread but would like to bump with some info:

Choosing 'Custom Game' at the start will get you the **modified** tag even if you play vanilla. Which is quite sad, I always chose custom since I didn't want to take on any of the roles that were offered.

With a custom game, you can not start any of the plot lines.

You could still earn the achievements that are not connected to it, like 'Filthy Rich'

No, because the game is automatically set to **modified** with a custom start.

Ok, I'm bringing this one to life because of the same symptoms.

I play this game on Linux, I have started the regular terran plot a few times always doing the flight school and still I don't have the correct achievement. I'm not in the game so far to get another achievement beside the Crash Course, but as I said - i didn't get that one either.

More info: My game files are ok, checked twice with Steam client restart before checking the second time. I'm running latest game version. I don't have any mods and I haven't started "custom game".

I have read there were problems with achievements on Linux. Someone got them (a year ago?) and then they suddenly stopped unlocking for them. I would like to get reply from one of those people.

The next thing is - Does the game show achievements right in the game? For example Left 4 Dead 2, Half-Life 2 and many other games have the ability to show your achievement progress in the game. Is X3TC capable of this too? If so, where can I see this info?

I would like to get other players - even those who have working achievements or got their achievement in some weird way - to talk about this right here. If you apply to this group (you should because you either got them or can't get them and oth groups apply :-) ), write here please. If there are enough people, we can as well start new thread from the gathered info.

Thank you all for participating

(Why I do this: If I get it right, this game is one big Sandbox with "a few missions". Achievements would be that force which would oush me farther in the game. Not that I don't enjoy the game right now, but with achievements working, there would be more dedication to get better)

Like Dave said before - check your pilot info (it's in the top menu on the left HUD bar), and at the bottom, it will say ***MODIFIED***, and that will bar you from achievements.

This tag will randomly appear in my game without me modifying my game at all. The only cure is to have rolling saves, and check after every save to see if I got that tag (and reload if I did).
fleabittendog Mar 12, 2014 @ 10:54am 
Yeah, I've never been able to get more than about 10 hours into any game without the modified tag popping up, even though it was completely vanilla. Someone said even if your anitvirus is running in the background it can cause your save to be modified. There should be a Steam achievement for being able to get achievements in x3.
