Bug(s) report
Here's the list of Steam achievements related and in-game bugs I have found so far:
- Upon prolonged use of T.A.F.K.A.C. levels may become "stuck" in his default undersaturated mode (maybe only graphically, I haven't checked if "neutral" damage/resistances become stuck too). Happens only with Style he was been "in" most of the time (switching to another Style fixes all colors), character switching doesn't fix it. Game restart brings everything back to normal;
- Thin red spikes to the left of first checkpoint in "Chester in the Little City" level drop brain that unlocks "FireFace" bestiary page instead of "thin red spikey things" one;
- Completion percentage of "Chesters" section in Bestiary is stuck on 8% (even though I've unlocked 10/12 Chesters) and Steam achievement bar for filling said Bestiary section is stuck on 0/12 even though achievement bar for unlocking all Chesters (which is basically same thing) correctly shows 10/12;
- Some of achievements of "complete levels without taking any damage" kind may be bugged: I successfully "no-damaged" two World 0 levels and got corresponding achievement, but can't get any progress on all Sketch World levels, ach. counter stays at 0 no matter what; achievements of "complete levels without doing damage to enemies" kind work just fine (at least those related to World 0 and Sketch World);
- Minor one: upon game launch achievement bar for "Know Thy Chesterverse" gets reset to 0, but returns to "proper" value after finding any Bestiary entry;
- And another minor one: there's no description for achievement "Not Sketch'n Around". It's just shows

Not Sketch'n Around
NEW_ACHIEVEMENT_DESC_56_24

though it should be

Not Sketch'n Around
Kill 15 enemies with your Sketch Explosion!

Thanks a lot for the detailed bug report!
I'll take care of what I can in the patch coming out this weekend and add the rest to the list of things to get taken care of.

Should also be adding an in-game Achivement browser soon that should help track down some of the Achievement bugs.

Some more bugs to fix:
- Can't unlock entries №34 and №48 in Enemy Bestiary (34 seems to be a laser, but they don't have collision hitbox to trigger brain drop; 48 is "thin red spikey things" from my original post);
- Chestius can't be unlocked at all: after finding all ship pieces mashing "Buy" button doesn't do anything except reducing number of stamps;
- Minor one: after buying bonus unlockables (Murdoc Vision, Rave Mode, - 50% off specials) checkmarks, showing "ownership" of those items, don't appear at all;
- Minor one: achievement "The Other Side" only have half of its description (just "Filled up" instead of "Filled up 25 pages of Enemy Bestiary!").

Thank you again for the bug reports!
Working on what turned out to be almost an almost complete overhaul of the code right now, but once that is done it's back to taking care of bugs.

Just wanted to chime in that I've run into the Chestius bug too.

More bugs:

I ran across a bug involving the final boss.

I retried the final boss several times to get the achievement for not using a special attack and eventually the boss got glitched with it "running" straight out of the "boss room" without giving me a chance to attack it. Leaving the level and returning did not fix it.

I'll try and provide more information if I can figure out what triggers it.

Aaaand I'm back with a bit more reports: one about actual bug and other about glitched achievements.

final boss also can spawn additional version of itself, which happens pretty frequently while using Chestius: just get "boss platform" out of view by flying to the one of upper corners aaaaand few seconds after this TBG "first form" copy will spawn. This thing fights alongside "original" boss (have same patterns and stuff) and doesn't disappear upon killing third form of that original boss;
- Achievements "Chester Learning" and "Minored in Chester" (that should be awarded for unlocking 3 and 6 new Chesters respectively) do not unlock for me even though I see 'em unlocked in dev's profile. May be related to "completion percentage of "Chesters" section in Bestiary is stuck on 8%" bug written in OP of this thread.
Also, can you re-make "Schmexy Backer" achievement into something more achievable by people who were been "late to the backer party"?

Thanks again for the detailed bug reports, looks like that final boss really needs some work!
The revamped version of the game is finally approaching a playable version; if it's not ready sometime relatively soon I'll take some time off from that to address some of these bugs in the current version.
Sorry again for the delays in taking care of these.

That one will be removed with the next update. Wanted to do something to reward backers, but thinking about it further locking everyone else from being able to 100% the game doesn't seem to be the way to go about it.

Any word on when you'll be removing the Schmexy Backer achievement? I'm keen to start playing this, but would prefer to be able to get all the achievements. It's a nice badge of honour for a game that I've enjoyed, and Chester looks like a game I will enjoy.

It's already removed from achievement list. Game can be 100%'ed just fine.
Formidolosus Dec 19, 2017 @ 9:46am 
Awesome! thanks for letting me know. I see on astats it's still misreporting then on the list. (Congrats on being the first to clear it by the way).

Nah, haven't 100%'ed it yet because of bug which have stopped unlocked characters from being marked as, well, "unlocked" in in-game encyclopedia which, in turn, stopped two "unlock x chars" type achievements from being, "well" again, achieved. Looks like this got fixed in some patch (developer and some letsplayer-guy got them just fine), but nothing unlocked retroactively for me, sooo I'm just waiting for dev guy to re-check this stuff again.
Formidolosus Dec 19, 2017 @ 10:28am 
Ahh that sucks! I hate being the guy that discovers achievements aren't working, has happened on a few occassions now. Get to the last few achievements and find out you can't actually get them, but then the Dev patches it and you'll have to start again if you want them.

Oh well... This statement
Originally posted by Barkaya:

turned out to be untrue...
A bit more achievement related bugs to fix (if Mr. Dev's still there...):
- Can't buy "Enemy" and "Other" entries for encyclopedia. At all. Rapidly clicking "Buy" button only produces "you have already bought this item" sound effect. Aaaand this prevents me from unlocking "Know Thy Enemy" and "Know Thy Other Stuff" achievements cause two enemies in game still have broken brain drops (so I can't obtain them "normally") and a number of "Other" encyclopedia entries are required to be bought;
- Enabling gamepad suddenly have fixed this problem:

Well, not actually "fixed" it... When I plug pad in and launch the game, completion percentage of "Chesters" section in Bestiary jumps to 100% (since I actually got all of them unlocked) but Steam counter for "Know Thy Chester" achievement stays on 11/12 mark so I can't unlock it no matter what; when I launch game without pad plugged in, percentage goes back to 8% and Steam counter resets to 0/12 mark... Soooo, here's that...

Ahhh damnit. So many games that would be brilliant, stumble on the finishing touches. I will probably still play this some time, but it goes down the list a few notches, as it's got a lot of achievements and I've had too many games this year with long lists of achievements that won't let me beat them thanks to one or two messed up ones. So my patience for them has run out this year.

I unfortunately haven't had the time to devote to development lately but I will be addressing these issues when I do have the time available. Thank you for taking the time to let me know about them.
Formidolosus Feb 28, 2018 @ 1:36pm 
There's definitely something going a bit wrong with the achievements or stats. My chester pages stat was stuck on 1 for ages. Then I opened up the game and suddenly got the achievements for 3 and 6 simultaneously. Then my stamp collecting one also seemed to be stuck, even though I'd earned more stamps than it claimed. On this same load in I went into a level, picked up one stamp and it unlocked. So it's weird, they do sort of work, but not when you expect them to / they get stuck or something.
Anyway, this is a great game, so thanks a lot dev. Hope you can fix it up fully one day.
