I just wanted to collect some of the last achievements I needed to complete the whole 2k GPs... imagine the "joy" I felt when I started it as usual on Steam and all my save games incl. The Last Stand w. Chaos Sorcerer almost at lvl 19 had been killed due to this update... Thank you SEGA and Relic for this improvement.

They could have at least announced this in the news section of the game!!! I the woould have, people like me would have had the chance to take time and get everything done before this day.

I too know your pain. I had 15k left for the 90k campaign score, and then the final mission.

I was also halfway to ranked and last stand being completed.

Now I won't be able to finish either of these and my efforts were all for naught.

I've decided that achievements are far too problematic to even bother pursuing with the amount of issues associated to them.

Microsoft should never have given in to EA with the original Xbox as we wouldn't have these issues.

...I still don't see the point why they did such big a change with such an relatively old game. Retribution already was released as a Steam exclusiv and back then would have been the now or never time to do that....but so late after??? I don't think that the game now will be sold much more thnaks to that if any.

Of course, the majority plays it logged to Steam but still I imgaine there are quite a few others like us who got kicked in the face and whos efforts have been flushed down the toilet without proper warning...and care by Relic/Sega and who ever was involved.

So if I have the hard copy of the game is GFWL still intact? I haven't installed it yet.

The answer is no. The game is installed through Steam and it will install the Steamworks version by deafult at the moment. And even if you had the GFWL version files, the game has to go through Steam authentication to play online and it will fail with the GFWL version files. I explained it more detailed here: WARNING: don't start Steam! First read this!

So even though I've got the game and chaos rising on a physical disc, I can't go online at all?

I originally installed with Steam, but I set it not to update as soon as I heard about the patch. Where does this leave me as far as getting any remaining achievements is concerned?

I originally purchased DoW II when it was released. Today I downloaded the game from Steam again and started the campaign over to collect some of the achievements I needed. I popped a new achievement (That's Close Enough) which is now unlocked on my achievement list in Steam. However, the new achievement is not being displayed on my xbox account. I assume that steam and xbox live are not talking. Does anyone know how I get them to sync?

You've got the version downloaded that has steam achievements instead of xbox ones.
