Are Achievements dead for this game now?

    I go back and forth I'm some of my games, and have started playing this again. Just hit hundred percent on one of the map locations and the achievement did not pop. It also appears that the button or link or whatever you want to call it to see the achievements no longer works. I know Microsoft has given up on their Windows phones, and most of if not all of their support for them. Did they just flat-out turn off all the achievements for the games we've downloaded? Are all of these Achievements no longer attainable?

    Are you using a WP8 or a WP10? WP8 no longer works for achievements. WP10 still works just fine for achievements. I popped some WP achievements today on my WP10.

    No they did not turn off achievements, everything still connects to LIVE. I believe WP7/8 devices have been having achievements issues for several months, but WP10 I haven't heard about having problems.

    Microsoft discontinued support and updates, and shut down the store on non-10 devices. They didn't kill the services.

    I restarted the game a couple of times and it finally connected to the Xbox Live system and the achievement popped. I think I'm going to have to focus on this game a little more to get my last handful of achievements for it before it truly breaks. Thanks for the reply!

    So is this game still possible to download from a win10 phone?
    Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

    I believe so, if you already owned it. It was removed from the store, but WP10 devices can download most delisted stuff

    Well if that's the case, I might just have to find me a WP phone again.

    We've been trying to find a download for a year and haven't had much luck. There are people downloading the game and completing it from time to time but we haven't been able to figure out how they're doing it.

    try emailing them?
    i tracked down a .xap few months ago. just tried to install it and got a "Installation of the application failed. Run time error has occurred. Fix the Capabilities in WMAppManifest.xml file" error though.
    any "more app dev knowledgable folk" out there that have a clue what that means?

    There's a thread on Reddit of a group compiling game files and developing apps for Windows Phone. It enabled me to re-download a few delisted games. You should be able to find it on the r/windowsphone subreddit. I'll see if I can locate it again.

    I was working on this one and achievements were syncing no problem. The last three i got have not synced ever since around June 28th till now (July 7th) Is there any way to force a sync, it seems as though my phone is still connecting to live properly (win 10) just this game isnt syncing. The leaderboards are still showing my points total and that is updating no problem... very odd.

    There are a couple ways to play it, some which can't be openly discussed on TA. If you bought it in the past though, try pasting ms-windows-store://review/?ProductId=9wzdncrdds01 into your phones web browser to open up the games page in the phones store app. If you have previously bought it, it should allow you to download it.
