    This is a MISSABLE ACHIEVEMENT and a very tricky one too.

    ATE's are short scenes that show you what other characters of the game are doing at that particular moment. There are 83 of these scenes, but 3 of them are mandatory moggle scenes, and you have to choose between 2 others; that means that you have to watch all 79 ATE's in ONE PLAYTHROUGH for this achievement to unlock.

    -You CANNOT watch a bunch of these and reload a previous savegame and watch them again to make the counter progress. This can only be done the hard way.

    -It's advisable to make saves before entering a new zone.

    -Most ATE's will trigger by default or by walking into a new screen, but others need special requirements to be watched; This solution will cover those requirements.

    DesgraciaHumanaBecause you have to choose between 2 of them that are mutually exclusive. That makes 79

    MattiasAndersonDoing it the way it is described in guides and here i could not get both came into the world and the truth.

    Bran Bal * 4 ATE's
    Make a save at the moggle when controling Zidane at arrival


    -Place To Call Home - When you gain control of Eiko in the inn.

    -Where The Heart Is - As Eiko exit the inn.

    -Came Into The World - As Eiko walk to the screen on the right. (I did get the truth here and could not get came into the world).

    -The Truth - As Eiko walk to the screen in the north.

    ---

    Instead go north first and then go back out to the right of the screen and you will get both.

    The other guide was great for the mechanics of the ATEs, but I've included the specific triggers for each scene, especially for areas of the game where the scenes are easily missable by wandering onto the wrong screens.

    The Evil Forest
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Ice Cavern
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Lindblum
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Lindblum Basin
    * Make sure you go to Qu’s Marsh to have Quina join your party

    Burmecia
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Treno
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Cleyra
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Alexandria Castle
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Lindblum (Second visit)
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    SAVE BEFORE ENTERING
    Black Mage Village
    This is the first town I noticed where you can miss ATEs by bumbling around in the wrong direction, probably because it is so small and story events are so close together.

    Conde Petie (2nd visit)
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***


    Madain Sari
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Lindblum Castle
    You’re not crazy; it’s a long gap until the next ATE. It won’t occur until you are back in Lindblum.
