Problem with achievements
well , here's my problem
when i get any achievement this only shows in-game and library , but not in community.
This problem seems solved with "top secret" achievement (got the pop-up 15 hours later without open the game, weird) but yesterday i got in-game the serious sam and are you serious achievement , but in community these still says locked.
what should i do ? is the first game where it happens

If it shows in Steam library, but not in community, it looks like a Steam problem. I will ask Valve about it.

Feedback from Valve is that this can happen if your connection with Steam is having problems, or if you are playing in offline mode, or if you login to a different machine kicking the current one out before it can update, etc. It should stabilize later if connection is restored.

As it seems it is ok for you now, as it shows 54 achievements in community for you now.

but now i have 56 achievements in-game not 54 , the bug of the secrets was fixed in like 12 hours ,but the other 2 (serious sam and are you serious) haven't been updated in several days :/

Well, it is hard to understand the details from your description. Can you please explain clearly in details, and attach screenshot in English, so we can match it to what we see in community?
lylat Jan 24, 2013 @ 1:24pm In game you can see 56 achievements , but community only shows 54 here are more ppl with the same problem , i think is a problem related with the steam servers because i have like 7000 achievements in different games but ss3 is the only with those problems

Well, any news on this: "Can you please explain clearly in details, and attach screenshot in English, so we can match it to what we see in community?"

I need exact achievements that are not synchronized, shown in both places, and then I can start researching and/or ask Valve about it. As it is now, I only know that "some" achievement is broken for you.

here you go - , the achievement is "Queen hatshepsut" , i got the popup for the other 2 broken achievements today , So this is the only one broken for me now

Hm, you guys are showing screenshots from within the game, which is not necessarily the same. It is quite possible for an achievement to be marked as achieved as in-game, but not in Steam, if you've been offline when playing. Does it show as unlocked in the Steam game library view?

i've changed my steam client to english for the picture requested,and the achievement appears in community now, that's weird.
i'll try getting another achievement to test

When I get any achievement this only shows in-game and library , but not in community. I have this problem with more achievements but anytimes after some days these achievements are update. This only happens with this game.

I tried changing both languages ​​to English (steam and game) but did not update the achievement in the community, even I have 44 achievements.

master.chief, I see BeastHunter in your community page. I guess these are all probably what Valve said - when solid connectivity is established, the community updates. IIRC, there were some similar things where some things were not updated online if you are set to "appear offline to your friends", so perhaps somethings like that is what happened to you.
lol. not sure what happen. I just clicked Play on Serious Sam 3 and all of a sudden 6 or 7 achievements popped up same time and appeared on community. These achievements were earned awhile now. Been recently playing games with issues concerning my internet so I am thinking "Not a Steady Connection with Steam" with me is the reason when they could not be on community before.

Indeed. You see, the game, and the Steam library, show achievements that were awarded on that machine. Community shows those that were successfully uploaded to Steam servers. If you have connection problems, or you play offline, there cannot be any uploading. Sometimes you even need to launch the game to give it a little "nudge", if there were problems uploading it previously.
