Game Discussion: Microsoft Sudoku

Changing Date = Duplicate Achievements?

    I was doing the 'change date to access previous month challenges' trick, and it appears to have caused some achievements to unlock multiple times.

    From memory, it was the "Marathon" and "Strive For Perfection" achievements that would 'unlock' again, after completing a challenge and returning to the challenge menu. You can see at this link DaMurn's achievements in Microsoft Sudoku (Mobile) that it currently says I have 920GS, where it should actually be 760GS.

    Anyone experienced this before, and knows of a fix?

    Semi-related (I guess), but I also noticed that my Premium subscription was not applied when I had the date in the past - is there some way to have it apply?

    This happened to me as well. My Gamerscore for the game was up to 995 at one point. It does correct itself though. Mine is back to normal now...

    I may have figured out how to 'fix' your Gamerscore for this. I just unlocked another achievement (not a 'duplicate' unlock but an actual new achievement), and my GS has been corrected.
    Strange that this occurs in the first place, and I'm not sure what someone would do if they already had all the achievements unlocked, but it's something.

    Yep I had this too - at one point I was at 1600/1000 GS. It will correct itself automatically

    How long does it take to correct itself? I've got the same problem now.

    Same thing has happened to me twice now, only happened with "strive for perfection" and "marathon" very strange
    Original unlock date was december 27th but it has completely changed it to february 1st

    Same for me. I didn’t change dates but since February 1st, “Strive for perfection” and “Marathon” both pop several times a day.

    Every time I open the game I get Strive For Perfection and Marathon now, my gamerscore for this game is higher than it should be and it's messing up other game scans.

    Also happening to me. Was hoping unlocking achievements in other games would fix it, but unfortunately it did not.
  • Posted on 03 February 20 at 10:09Permalink
    I’ve unlocked achievements in other games, I’ve also tried unlocking achievements in sudoku and still having same issue
    I have tried to look dunno if I’ve missed something

    Yep, this is all over the place at present. On game load, they both pop. If you play some games and choose Done instead of Play Again, they pop. Yesterday i had achieved 2040gs of the 1000 total. Then it rights itself and the pattern repeats.

    Groundhog Day was on over and over and over yesterday on Sky Movies - seems apt to be honest :)

    What's worse is that since this has started happening my level tracker isn't working properly (it's stuck at 92 of 250, but i'm now level 121), nor is the games played etc etc. I've not date changed at all, i only installed the game on the 26th Jan in time to get the January medals!

    Not really sure what to do now tbh

    Had this happen earlier today ended up with 440 extra Gamerscore in the game. The score sorted itself on xbox.com but this game still shows the wrong score on TA.

    EDIT: When the achievements repopped again TA scanned in the score that was only 40 more than it should be, so to fix it here it would be necessary to pop a new achievement in the game.

    This game has been all kinds of broken since 1 January.
    There is always a way.
