If you copy and paste the URL from the achievement page, it create the fancy link for you. Same with game pages, solutions, sessions etc. Hope that helps.

Someone posted a link for a place you can add the games you own, but haven't earned an achievement in, to determine all of your available options for achievements that qualify for a challenge. My options are quite limited for Day 4 and I would like to see what will qualify from the other games that I own. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Go to any game and add it to your "game collection" then on any achievement filter/list you can select "include game collection"

Potentially dumb question but I was going to start working on these tonight (been busy with schoolwork). Do I have to wait for challenge one to be scanned before I go to the next challenge or can I finish the first one and start the second relying on time stamps to show that I finished challenge one first?

It seems I recall in last year's challenge, "tagged online achievements" included those that were tagged both online and offline, such as those in Borderlands 2 & Pre-sequel. Now it appears that only those that are online only are listed, making it tougher on those of us who do not play online often. Is this true?

You can see last year's challenges and descriptions here:

Twelve Days of Christmas

There were no online challenges per se. There were 'versus' and 'co-op' challenges of which many could be done solo and/or offline.

So yes it is true that this year they ostensibly have to be done 'online' although actually there are achievements with the 'online' flag which can be done purely offline and solo as well.

Thanks for the response FullNeitzsche! I see I did the 'versus' challenge, but did not make it to the 'co-op' challenge last year. Memory check partly failed! I have found more than four for this one, so off I go.

They're based solely on Timestamps, so you are good without a scan.

So after I complete the achievement for the first challenge, I was wondering if it would work if I popped 2 random title update achievements in Minecraft, then 3 other rare Minecraft achievements and then at least 4 snowball achievements for Minecraft 360 version and I will have almost caught up?

the challenge achievements have to be in order but you can always pop other achievements in between, as long the order of the ones that are eligible are in order.

like so:

1. achievement with 53g
2. "normal achievement"
3. title update achievement
4. "some other achievement"
5. title update achievement
6. rare achievement"
7. some other achievement
8. rare achievement"
9. rare achievement"

this would still count, for the first three challenges.

The online flag is specifically for achievements that you have to be online to get. Not necessarily multiplayer ones though, a lot of games have an ‘always online’ aspect to them even though they’re mostly solo experiences (Path of Exile, Elite Dangerous etc...) so have all their achievements tagged with the flag.

I ended up grabbing a few from For Honor that I’d already preloaded for UHH but that never came up for me in that... heh.

Hi, Where can I ask for a support? I unlock several achievements for challenge 2 but it is not working :( I unlocked them yesterday using Sleeping Dogs Bonus content.

Thanks

Brave is now tagged as a GwG game. The GI team is looking into Tomb Raider. Thanks for pointing these out.
