When we plan an achievement, we test it extensively to see if it's fair and fun. If there is a hole on the logic, the cheevo must be fixed. The objective of the challenge is clear, if there is a way to circumvent it, it must be upgraded.
2 Nov 19:31 2019
Ok ... make a video doing the "Shaft Floor is Lava" achievement in hardcore and post it here in chat so I can know that you tested the achievement, if you ignore this you don't even care to test the achievement
2 Nov 19:37 2019
I honestly don't know what you're trying to do here. Some problem was found in the logic and it got fixed. Hence the cheevo was updated. If any user has any problem getting it following the intended instructions, all they need is to post a ticket.
2 Nov 19:45 2019
The original idea was to beat the orb "ONLY" using the dive kick technique. Some user reported it was possible to do it even when using the shield rod combo. I don't see anything wrong in the update. All it did was to nullify a possible cheat.
2 Nov 19:59 2019
god you are a cry baby NaulDrade
2 Nov 20:53 2019
complete the sotn set ... Yendihunt
2 Nov 21:31 2019

3 Nov 0:40 2019
Oh, I didn't know it was allowed to hit Richter in the process. I only tried until today to just hit the Shaft and almost got it once hahahahahaha.I will keep trying.Congratulations, great achievement.
3 Nov 0:46 2019
I managed to do it without touching Richter once or maybe twice when I tested it, but this not possible to do consistantly, it require luck. So no restrictions to kick Richter. Also thank you.
15 Nov 17:29 2019
The Lucky 3's must be done in one session?
15 Nov 21:34 2019
Yes 1 session.
14 Dec 9:55 2019
There is a problem with Lucky 3's , i complete the achievement but it doesn't count , i didn't miss any condition
19 Dec 6:11 2019
I just got it on my alt you can check. Mayby you do something wrong?
31 Jan 12:18 2020
The "silver key" & "holy glasses" achievements not triggered in hardcore mode ...
1 Feb 14:25 2020
Death skip not allowed. So if you done it lot of achievements will not work.
20 Feb 1:37 2020
4 left, this set has been really fun, really enjoying how it forces me to try harder and new things
27 Feb 18:36 2020
Finally done, i'm so happy T-T
8 Mar 5:54 2020
"How do I eat this" (the eat a peanut achievement) seems to be bugged. Did it twice already and no unlock.
10 Mar 5:14 2020
Peanuts achievement is a little bit weird, can confirm, took me 4 successful tries before it registered.
10 Mar 17:13 2020
How can I get it work with the EUROPE (Pal) iso please ? Achievement work with US version but not EUR.
