    If I was that kind dev, hearing so many people basically pressed fast forward on my game, it wouldn't make me happy
    If the devs cared about anyone 'pressing fast forward' on their game, they would have removed the Dev menu from the RTW build.

    I can't get one achievement to unlock. Fourteen thousand leagues under the sea. Obviously I did the cheese method, got everything else but this. Any ideas?
    That one triggers as soon as you teleport to incubator so strange if that didn't pop as you'd have had to have gone there to get the rest. Just reload save, teleport to incubator save exit and reload that. Should pop it

    Thanks for the reply! I got it, don't know what the problem was, but I reloaded the save several times, restarted the game, nothing. Kept playing, no achievement unlock notification, but when I checked achievements for the game, it acted like it was unlocked with the rest of them...

    Ah yeah you won't see all of them pop just cause of the amount of them all at once. Only way to tell if you didn't get one is to look at the list.

    I did check the achievement list, many times, but that one was missing. Had 14/17. Reloaded the save, went to the location again, saved again, closed the game, nothing helped. Had 16/17 after blasting off in rocket. Closed the game again, checked 16/17, kept playing and after some time I checked the achievements again and it was 17/17! Weird, but I got it done. Thanks for the guide!

    That is really strange. If someone else has the same issue. I’ll point them this direction

    They're both artificially inflating their own score by not playing the game. I see no difference
    LEGO Indiana Jones: Original AdventuresSecret AchievementThe Secret Achievement achievement in LEGO Indiana Jones: Original Adventures worth 49 pointsContinue playing to unlock this secret achievement

    That's your first achievement in Lego Indiana Jones. Why didn't you unlock everything legit? Why did you use cheats instead of playing the game? You cheated before completing the first level. Give the game a chance!
    Dude...look at the dates, I spent over a month and a half finishing that game. Not like 30 minutes like you did. Like snooping over your profile, your best game is project Spark with a TA score of over 10k that you accomplished over two years. That takes work, no sarcasm. But how would you feel if a guide was published that all of it could be done in 30 minutes. Turning your 10k TA score that you worked for over 2 years into basically nothing?

    Obviously this whole dispute is opinion based and Im juts in the camp that achievements should be a reflection of an achievement, not doing this. oh well

    You're missing his point bud. He's saying you used an exploit available in the game (a menu and codes in this case) to unlock an achievement WAY before it was ever supposed to be. Your use in that game is no different than our use in this one. The only difference being the fact this one unlocks all achievements while yours unlocked the last one you should have got. Get off your high horse as you've used things provided in games to unlock achievements.

    I'd disagree, in the LEGO games, you're clearly meant to use the multipliers to get the achievements. Dev menus and console commands aren't something that are usually advertised as something a player is expected or even required to use to complete a game. I don't have a real issue with either, but you still have to at least play the LEGO games to complete them achievement worse.

    So I do feel there is a difference.

    Lego Indiana Jones lets you unlock everything legit. There's no need for cheats. You did it to save time. Same with Subnautica.

    I'm glad you posted this guide - it inspired me to try the game. I liked it, and played/finished it legit. I might not have even tried it if I hadn't seen people popping the full game in a day, so toast
    FWIW, I never changed my controller settings once I got sorted.

    Hmm, did I miss something? Yes you're meant to use the multipliers in LEGO games. We're not talking about them, we're talking about him using cheats in the game. Those are not "meant" to be used.

    That's the point. Who decides what is and is not meant to be used? Do we start the argument with walkthroughs/guides for games that are provided on this site and others? What about YouTube videos? Boosting sessions?

    See my point of view that it is up to the individual judging. It is like that famous saying I cant describe porn but I know what it is when I see it

    I've literally never heard that before. I can describe porn and I'm not sure how any adult couldn't. Porn is not subjective. Cheating is. In this case the person who got called out is is saying using a menu left in the game by the developer to unlock things is cheating yet is using a menu (cheats) left in the game by the developer to unlock things. They got defensive when they got called out on their double standard.

    The people defending this method are not the ones trying to tell people how to play games the person who used cheats to unlock something 40 hours (think this game and actually playing or using my guide) before it should have been is and people have just been pointing out to him that he can't have it both ways

    Porn is very subjective. If not the most subjective thing and varies wildly from country to country

    Many adults can not and that is why in America there is the Miller Test.

    Just to be clear, I have absolutely no issue with somebody using the cheats in LEGO games. I have issues with people saying LEGO cheats are fine but developer menus are not.

    Well my original point is that the LEGO cheats were something the developers intentionally coded into the game as a way to unlock the cosmetics early. While the Subnautica dev menu seems more like an unintentional oversight on the devs part. The first allows you to play the game fully, just with more customization. The second allows you to 100% skip the whole game. I think its fair to say there's a difference. But ultimately I stopped caring about this argument cause it's just proof gamerscore and achievements aren't what they used to be and I was just slow to realize that. So meh, live and let live

    But they aren't just cosmetics, the achievement unlocked means that all the red bricks, a collectible attained through normal progression, were unlocked WAY earlier and thus you (or whoever has used the codes) has skipped part of the game.

    As for the menu being there it's not an oversight. It's meant to be used and the developer is the one who provided a way to unlock it's use. The fact you can backdoor achievements using a save/reload method is the only oversight. Even then may not even be as they might not even care. There are some developers who literally only have them (the bare minimum of 10) in their games because they're forced to by Xbox.
