Except it didn't seem to affect other profiles I saw, I think, I couldn't say who, but on other profiles I think i remember seeing all 55 listed, whereas for me there's only 8.
Andrevus 13 Jan 2022 15:17
It shows 55 on your profile for me too. Maybe it's a browser error on your end?
Vince989 13 Jan 2022 15:19
Now it does once again, but I can assure you it didn't merely minutes ago... :P Odd...

Isolated : It starts to glitch when listing 85 games and above on my profile, and gets worse and worse, say at 150 games : https://retroachievements.org/user/Vince989?g=85

Scott 13 Jan 2022 15:28
that's really wrong :S can confirm that happens here too. Definitely a webpage/browser/data issue of some sort - we need to isolate it a little to start getting a fix
Vince989 13 Jan 2022 15:31
Probably something wrong in RA's PHP API ?
Rapid 31 Jan 2022 19:42
it had to be worth more points these path :/
Sachiel 1 Feb 2022 21:29
these new boss achievements are absolute dogshit. you spend an hour grinding one soul trying not to overlevel doing it and then you end up kiting the boss to let your magic bar fill up so u can use the soul that you are forced to use. yeah i really feel like im mastering the game now
bebeidon 1 Feb 2022 22:19
yes i also think there is no fun in it, or have to research youtube to break the game but the authors of this will never aggree, it's ridiculous

RE-MASTERED
Sachiel 2 Mar 2022 15:36
Finally remastered. Juluis boss rush was the hardest imo. The boss achievements ended up being fun when they had damageless. The soul or weapon requirements are still stupid. I think if they where just "no magic, no damage + certain level" it would be way simpler and better.
KevinCarbonara 7 Jun 2022 16:27
These new achievements are awful. Because grinding souls inherently gives XP, it's very difficult to even do them in the same playthrough. They *clearly* belong in a bonus set.
Seaofstars86 13 Jul 2022 00:14
i would say this set is good almost all the achievements are great except for those infamous hard as hell "paths" achievements and the sword or whip achievement the latter is the only achievement I haven't been able to complete this set just for this achievement, seriously infernox it was really necessary to put this achievement in the normal set you know this achievement is better in the subset-bonus

Thank god i mastered before update

Can JonataGuitar's Recolor be added to the forum? It's a cool trick that improves the graphics of AoS!
