wish this dev would take more care of his/her product after the release date.
Still broken:sadrandy:
The game runs using nw.js and you can actually bring up a Chrome devtool console by pressing F12. :D I'm not hugely familiar with this stuff but from what I was able to figure out, the bug is caused because the game uses two separate collision checks when collecting mucus - one to collect it for the sake of completing the level, one to add it to the counter for the achievement. However, the collection one runs first, and deletes the mucus when it's done, so the achievement check always fails.

It probably wouldn't be too difficult for someone with a bit more experience to make a console command that would make the achievement work as intended, and could theoretically be considered a legitimate method as far as achievement tracking site rules are concerned, though it's a thorny issue.

More info please?

I've made a fix for the one broken achievement in the game (Collect 30 lumps of mucus) which makes the achievement unlockable as intended by doing what it requires. The only difference made to the game code is that I moved the two collision detections around as highlighted out by shockedfrog in his comment (#18 of this discussion).

DL Link: https://mega . nz/#F!SqYnWaqT!SCcriuejunX3V2eyuoTpGQ
(remove the space between mega . and . nz)

To use the fix replace the package.nw file in the game directory with the one in the download above.

The achievement will then work as intended and be unlocked after collecting 30 mucus.

I also encourage you to email the dev at: snop2-dog23@mail.ru to try get it officially fixed.

Keep in mind you may get a game invalidation on AStats for this as no decision has been made on community fixes being allowed at the moment.
