[POTENTIAL SPOILERS] Achievement Help w/ AS
« on: November 09, 2012, 12:37:22 AM »
There's 1 achievement that is eluding me on HOW to get it, and that's "Swiss Army Knife" - unlock all Champion module lines to at least Mk 1.  I have completed all the nebulae scenarios successfully now, got the Champion-related ending, however I'm missing some modules apparently - just wondering if there's either a list (that I can tick off) or if it's the possibility of a bug report job?

BTW Keith & Chris - would love to see more fluff and expand on the story told with the "secret" ending - would be great to have a semi-scripted defender mode telling of the break-out (another expansion perhaps?)

I think this is all of them:

Acid Jet.
Paralyzer.
Polarizer.
Impulse-Reaction.
Heat Beam.
Nanosubverter.
Insanity Inducer.
Translocator.
Doom Accelerator.
Photon Lance.
Rail Cluster.
Rail Cannon.
Plasma Siege Cannon.
Flak.
Bomber Bay.
Interceptor Bay.
Slicer Bay.
Heavy Beam Cannon.
Missile.

and then the three you start with, Needler/Laser/MLRS.

I don't know about trying to make an actual gameplay scenario in AIW out of the battle I think you're referring to, because it would be better suited to a tactical game, but I certainly do hope to explore the story more in the future :)
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games? Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

OK I've found the one's I'm missing, but can't work out how I'm missing them?  Are there a set number/type of unlock for each scenario?  Or can you gain additional unlocks by completing scenarios in a certain way (Prison break for example)?

It's confusing me as I know I've had at least the PSC unlocked in a different game....

Missing in Action:
Polarizer
Heat Beam
Photon Lance
Plasma Siege Cannon

I believe that 3 of those can be unlocked in Grey Spire scenarios and 2 with the Shattered Pillar.

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Still having issues unlocking everything (although pinged level 50 at least!), just wondering are there any prerequisites in terms of standard research first? (Like in the FS unlockables)

most likely need to allow duplicate scenarios

There is a command on the wiki in the cheat sections that you can use. It will enable duplicate scenarios. And unless you are really freaking lucky, you will need to do that to get all the modules, I know I did.

But doesn't the use of cheats negate achievement unlocking?

This particular command is not technically a cheat. You don't need cheats enabled to use it and it doesn't count as a cheat for disabling achievements.

you got all of them? :O very nice job. I'm only at 94, soon to be 98. I don't like cheesing my games or play very short games, so I'm gonna have a lot of trouble with all the dif 9 (and the few dif 10) achievs.
