A couple of badge problems

Issues & Bug Reports

I am still wondering why I don't have the glitched badge yet. I have also added Saints Row IV: Re-Elected (AU) which had every story mode achievement glitched, but is fixed now. I have played LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 which had a documented glitch with a missing gold brick that I had to start a new game to get the related achievement.

Are you sure? Those two games have every achievement unlocked by hundreds if not thousands of gamers therefore not glitched. A game is only glitched if no-one has an achievement because it cannot be attained.

Unfortunately, I don't know that list, as it is not published on the badge. Hopefully a staff member could look and tell you which games do and do not count for it.

Also if those don't qualify, perhaps the badge should be named the unobtainable badge instead.

Again, a list of games that count for the glitched badge would be extremely helpful, and would direct us from an administrative issue to a logic issue.

See if you have played any of those games...I don't know if they are all on the list like but it's a start!

Not really as that would be unfair to play old games companies have closed server to.

Again, unlike any of the "series" game badges, which actually list which games are included, this one does not. And since each game has to be manually inserted into the table that this badge uses to unlock, the original poster could continually try games that just are not associated.

So, until Eric comes in, declares which games are included, and/or updates the list to include the games napoearth is trying, I think napoearth is going to end up more frustrated than anything.
I have unlocked this in 2014 when I joined so unless you wanna scan my profile so what I played before joining this site as I have no idea what the game was haha.
Probably Let's Golf 2 (WP), Hellboy (360), Arcania 4 (360), Alien Spidey (xbla), Putty Squad (xbla), Revolution (WP) and Da Vinci Pinball (WP) qualify too.

It was most likely one of these games that got me the badge. Hope it is of any help to anyone Smile

Cheers
If any of you know the names of specific achievements that are now unobtainable for these games, I can verify if they've been flagged or not. If not, they should award badges correctly after I flag them. Please be sure of the achievement before posting it.
Let's golf - secret code
Hellboy - taste the lobsters claw; pulp faction
Arcania 4 - geek
Revolution - empty fort Knox
Da Vinci pinball - sky conqueror
Putty squad - hero
Tiger woods (WP) - make it rain
Alien spidey - treasure hunter

That's the ones I'm sure of that are unobtainable. Hope it helps.

I'm going to hold off on server closures for right now, as it's a bit of a grey area. We'll have to work something out.

If that is the case, then Little Mermaid and Six Guns (Windows 8) both apply yet I still don't have the badge. I'm not so much frustrated about not getting this badge, just curious why it is such a mystery what games qualify, and why the two that I mention don't qualify.
I'm guessing because a cheater has the achievements the system thinks they are no longer unobtainable
