In the June GwG thread someone alluded to one of this game's achievements becoming possibly unobtainable due to glitches and the fact that you can't delete your save file or start a new one. Can anyone explain further?

"The Extra Mile" achievement can glitch out. It's for completing all the story missions at the Platinum level. Support has been pretty non existent for the issue even though it's been reported by players for over a year.

One of the reasons they say they haven't been able to fix the issue, supposedly, is because they haven't been able to replicate the circumstances that cause it. Which leads to the problem of not really being able to best say how to avoid having it happen. However, there's a [mostly ignored] forum thread on the Ubi site where a lot of us have listed our experiences as best we can & offer up some possibilities.

I think the most common scenario that leads to this glitch is playing the story missions in co-op. I can't say for sure (obviously), but the game could (can?) suffer from micro-disconnects, freezes, and crashes. If these happen at the end of a race where you got a Platinum time, then it seems that part of the game recognizes & saves that Platinum time, and part of the game (the Awards mechanic in the game) does not. The achievement seems to be tied to the part of the game that doesn't recognize the Platinum. Unfortunately, this becomes a locked state in the game. Which is why re-running all the story missions to Platinum won't get the achievement (or in-game Award, i.e. the mission Awards are for getting Platinum in either 2 or 3 different missions depending on the Award) to pop.

So I can't say for sure, but if you do the entire initial story run solo, and then go back and finish getting Platinum times in all the missions you have left after you've done some upgrades to your cars (also solo) that would be your best bet. As I said, it's no guarantee because of the always online nature of the game.

Good luck.

Well, I pretty much never play co-op in any game, so I guess I'm fine. I assume it's easy enough to play solo even though it's an online-only game?

I did everything solo and I got the achievement.

If you've got a powerful car (1250+ car level) platinums aren't difficult at all, the only mission that gave me problems was the armoured car takedown mission, that took me around half an hour of tries to get.

Versatile Showman is glitched for me. Stuck on 98%

Apparently you can unhook your uplay account and start a new one while maintaining the same gamertag. Or ask them to delete your save of their servers. However it is speculated that when going for this achievement to NOT HAVE THE INCREASED SKILL PERK

I had that perk when I unlocked the achievement.

Edit- Wow, just noticed I was third on TA to unlock it.

Yeah well Wyyvern it also doesn't glitch for everyone. The perk thing is also about the fact that you don't have to beat the Platinum Ghost to get Platinum with that perk on. So it could just be that you got a more legit platinum ;)

I had the same problem mate and managed to pop it via replaying the skills I had already done to Platinum level. Turns out that for me, a Platinum on a jump in the West Coast didn't count for me even though I had done probably 3 jumps in that portion of the map (going for the achievement). So if you haven't already, maybe give that a try (replaying the ones you've done)?

I tried some, like 5-10 of them. I preloaded the achievement and only needed a hill climb. I redid those but I guess I had to keep trying.

As frustrating as it is to waste time redoing things you have already done, I'd keep trying mate and see if it decides to pop. Maybe use it as an excuse to drive the miles needed for Overclocker if you haven't popped that yet. I was really worried about the completion being impossible too because of that achievement but like I said, I managed to get it to pop eventually. Good luck with it mate. :)

Did you get lower scores on those platinums? Did you do them all in one session?

It was a mixture of lower and higher scores on the Platinums I retried. All I was focusing on was getting the Platinum medal again, nothing else, and then moving onto the next one hoping that eventually one of them would pop the achievement, which as I said above it did. As for one session, nope. I was using this issue as an excuse to build up my miles so I was driving to them all which obviously takes time and therefore multiple sessions.

If it helps break up the monotony or something, maybe try doing one region per session?

I redid most skills turning some gold into platinum and only redoing platinum if I had nothing else left.

No succes, I'll try redoing most platinums I guess :/ (I have sooo many)

I have contacted ubisoft and they keep refering me to the forums. There is no activity there other than from users, this will not be patched.

I then asked them to delete my save file so I could reattempt but even this seems impossible. I've redone over a 100 and even scored some new ones. So if it glitches and redoing platinums does nothing you're pretty much fucked.

Right now I have problem unlocking any achievement in this game. 200 laps last one, got in game award no achievement! Hard reset on console seems to help. Maybe it's something wrong with my profile :(

There have been issues. It could also be stuck in Done... Unlocking! Does the achievement show you have it's progress on 100%?

If the award popped it's probably on Microsoft not Ubisoft

There was a patch, notes on their website, but makes no mention of achievements

Yes, they did some bug fixes but no fixes on the award system as i could see when i was playing. It cant be much work to patch award system and achievement? They adding cars now and then and this must be more work then patch achievements!?
