So far something did change. I did the update, and after loading the game it now registers my last achievement (3. Counter This) as 'Most Recent' unlocked in steam (when seen at the library page in steam itself). However, it doesn't show it unlocked yet (or any other for that matter) in my achievement page (when I click view all achievements).

Just to make sure I also deleted the whole game and downloaded it again, but that didn't change any.

I don't know at what point the achievements should be updated in steam? Does that happen when I startup the game or when I get fresh new achievement?

When you start the game, it should attempt to unlock your achievements that way.  You should also see your steam username appear in the upper left of the screen saying "logged in as <yourusername>."  It may take it a few submits to get all your achievements up there.  Additionally, Steam sometimes has a delay between its servers from when things show up on one part of your profile and another; it's usually not a super long delay, but they have many servers and they don't all get updated instantly.  Sounds like it's probably working, knock on wood! :)

Glad you got it fixed Chris. This is important to me as well. :)

Great thanks for the work and info, I'll give it a few more tries and time then. I see myself logged in, steamworks enabled (Mytharox) and it shows (150/266) unlocked in my steam achievement page, and 157/266 unlocked at my 'Most Recent' so I guess somewhere it knows I got 7 new achievements ;) I'll just try and start the game every half hour for the next couple of hours and see what will happen.

Sweet!  If it already says that, it sounds like it might just be propagation delays inside the Steam servers; so nothing more should be required on your side.  This is my guess, anyhow. :)

No luck so far, also, when I clear the cache and restart steam, the most recent 'resets' to my previous Most Recent and 150/266, (the one from ages ago). After I start the game again, the most recent once again changes to the right one and 157/266. But only that, the achievement page itself doesn't update any of the newly unlocked achievements.

Okay, you should find another small update just pushed out.  I think that there was an issue in how I was doing the resubmit-achievements code (though the submit code for achievements you had newly gotten worked fine).  Let me know how that works!

I didn't notice the update. But just in case I did the uninstall of the game, cleared the cache, then downloaded it again and started it. But I am afraid the result is still the same for me right now. Looks ok on Most Recent, but the achievement page itself still doesn't show them. I don't know if it is any help, but I also don't see the popups for them ingame, like I see usually when achievements unlock.

Hmmm, that's odd.

1. In the upper right, when you log in, does it say "Set <AchievementName>" for the achievements that you were missing?
2. When you look in the achievements list in the game itself, not in steam, does it have YES in all the rows in question, or are those blank?

When I login (all cleared again) I don't see any "Set <AchievementName>" also when I check ingame those new achievements don't have Steam Yes.

(On a side note.. I have a few achievements Yes in steam but not completed ingame, looks weird too, but that would be easy to solve by defeating the same guy once more I guess.)

Hmmm.  I can see that the new achievements are definitely unlocking: http://steamcommunity.com/stats/AIWar/achievements

Not quite sure what the deal is here, because everything seems to be happening as it should except it actually sending.  It sounds like for some reason it isn't trying to resend your achievements at all, but they should since they don't have Steam Yes.  I'll be curious to hear what happens once you get another achievement that is brand new; that might shed some light.

Regarding the achievements that have Steam Yes but are not completed ingame, that is expected if you earned those achievements on a different computer than the one you are currently on (or if your settings.dat file got wiped).

That explains it, I did install my pc again and played some on my laptop as well. As for checking the steam achievements there, that isn't really reliable as some people use SAM, an achievement manager to unlock the achievements they want. So actually only when people really report it's working again you can be sure it is working in the way you intended:) But perhaps unlocking a new achievement would trigger mine, so I will give that a try tomorrow.

Good news this time, after trying a sandbox mission against a new AI I got not only the new achievement for that one, but also all the others. I am glad that triggered it, but I have no idea why that did and the normal startup of the game didn't.

Thanks a lot for fixing this, I am pretty happy with it and I bet a lot of other achievement collectors are too :)

I was wondering why last night I suddenly got bombarded with achievements  ;)
Life is short. Have fun.
