"I have a bad feeling about this"

What exactly does it mean "complete the 'first' episode"? Is this all the way to the alt. victory condition, or some point halfway? Some clarification would be much appreciated for this achievement.

It's supposed to be the completion of the subspace receiver, but it appears there's something wrong with the detection logic that crept in after I implemented and tested the achievement.

That was an insanely quick reply. You guys are beyond any developers I have encountered so far. Me and my friends are working towards getting all achievements in the game and are rapidly approaching this test of skill. Any idea if/when this will be fixed so we don't attempt it when it doesn't work?

It'll be fixed, I'm not sure of when, been hashing out AVWW's networking model.  Hopefully within a week.

Again, thanks for your quick replies and thanks for being on top of things. Will hold out on attempting the achievement till we know it has been updated. While I have you here talking about achievements we have did have some problems with the 3. Derailed achievement. It has triggered in-game but yet to show up on Steam. Guessing this will be fixed at some point as well and reward it to us as soon as it has been fixed?

I had left 3. Derailed off the steam list by accident, but I added it recently.  Is it still not showing up on the public steam list?  There was some weirdness with it not thinking there were pending changes on the publishing interface...

It seems to have vanished again in that case as its not showing up on either of our lists (this is mine - http://steamcommunity.com/id/Chris52/stats/AIWar). Its only showing as 233 and I guess its its supposed to be 234 with 3. Derailed. One of my friends did say that he had seen it at one point and one of the achievement site we frequent has picked it up during its scan but seems to have vanished again.

Lets hope you can figure it out and add it back in. The previous missing achievements activated just fine with your game so have no doubt this one will work just fine when this gets fixed as well. You have done such a good job with stuff it feels like one can depend on you and your game :)

So that's why there has been little word from you two this past week. Well, you did mention that AVWW is a higher priority right now, and AI war is at a pretty good stage right now, so I understand the delays.

Ok, this achievement-not-being-awarded thing should be fixed for 5.003, and it should pick it up retroactively if you load a game where you've met the conditions (as long as your profile name equals the name of the player in that game).
