Either it's not implemented yet or devs want people to actually hack their game. Found this in game files, "--" means it's commented out and won't work, plus game won't allow you to unlock achievements if you change anything in it's code.
if not config.DEV and KLEIAchievements then --KLEIAchievements:achieve( "META_HACKING" ) end

Ok, so I've managed to unlock this achievement by messing with game files, but I'm not sure if it's a legit way or just cheating. Hopefully one of the developers can clarify this situation.

All things considered, it's probably the correct way. I mean, it's a game in which stealth, and hacking happens. And you in turn, screw with the game to unlock it. Thus, meta.

In what file you find it?
Mick May 14, 2015 @ 4:20am 
"hacking"
Smokey Barrister May 14, 2015 @ 11:15am 
Hmm, can't find the file - any more clues as to where it is?
Brotigan May 14, 2015 @ 12:22pm 
scripts.zip -> \client\states\state-main-menu.lua
Smokey Barrister May 14, 2015 @ 12:54pm 
Ah, gotcha. Thanks!

EDIT: Hmm...looks like I'm stuck. Tried unzipping, changing it so it's no longer commented, rezipped, and nothing. What did you end up doing to unlock it, Brotigan? Any further hints? :)

What exactly you did with this file?
Brotigan May 14, 2015 @ 3:01pm 
Let's wait a little and see what developers have to say about it, maybe it's just an unfinished achievement and they'll update it in the next patch.
Smokey Barrister May 15, 2015 @ 10:33am 
Hmm, fair enough. Although like Richard said, if you've managed to unlock it (without using Steam Achievement Manager or some similar achievement unlocker program), you probably did the right thing. So congrats on that! :)

Game just updated and look what we have here:
if not config.DEV and KLEIAchievements then -- Yes, this achievement exists... No, I'm not giving it away for free. :) --KLEIAchievements:achieve( "META_HACKING" ) end

Guess you really need to hack the game, so here's my method.

Backup scripts.zip and hashes.dat files. Unpack scripts.zip, open \client\states\state-main-menu.lua, delete "--" at the beginning of "--KLEIAchievements:achieve( "META_HACKING" )" line, save your changes and repack files back into scripts.zip. Now open hashes.dat in any text editor, delete it's content and save (it must be 0 bytes). That's it, launch the game and achievement should unlock.

I'm sure that's it as it seems like a pun.
Smokey Barrister May 15, 2015 @ 11:28pm 
Hah, love the dev response. Thanks a bunch, Brotigan, followed your instructions and it worked - kudos to you for figuring that out!

Also love that this sort of achievement exists - perfect for a game like this. The people at Klei are geniuses.

Hahaha this is brilliant! Klei Entertainment is rapidly becoming one of my favorite developers.
