Thanks. Also, :shock: I played something on my Xbox One.

Ugh, been on Discord too much lately.
An Xbox One??? I didn't even know you had one of those! :-P lol
At least it's quick, but not live in-game yet.

just let it die a painful miserable death devs..
Oh, so Instant War Planet Online is still at it eh? Devs haven't learned their lesson and gave up making trash yet?
Nope. They claim "community suggestions" for bug fixes of things they broke, and told us no new achievements for Update 9.
I know Microsoft extended W10M support for another month, does that mean achievements will only unlock until then?
No, support just means OS patches. Everything else still runs after that.
For example, this was unlocked on WP8.1 which hasn't been supported for 2+ years now.
Yeah I know, but I thought the store removal was supposed to kill achievements.
I found a way to export the maps and import them to another device, effectively backing up the maps for everyone.
Feel free to spread the word in case we can find someone that does.
Yeah i accidentally updated mine ages ago.
Any trick, like in the Windows Store, to install iOS stuff from Canada?
There is for Android. I don't own iOS but I can look.
Whats the trick, I want to give it a try
You can make an account in the specific region for both iOS and Android I believe to download it to your phone.
Almost done with wordament android, so i guess this will be good for achievements on the go. Its a brutal grind though.
What platform and how? Seems it isn't available in US yet, and changing region on my iPhone didn't work.
Did you change region?
I wonder how long WP will get Minecraft updates with support ending today.
Its Win10 mobile, so I think they are going to have all the updates, but im not sure
We can only see.
Well, my WP8 still syncs at least...
As stated, I'm willing to help people setup their devices, but will not be responding to requests for XAPs. Working with moderators for restoring my other blogs.
Kudos to you Shadow, as ever one of the most helpful members of the community

I Agree with Corrupt!! Thanks Shadow!!
Restoring my blog on how to create the backup XAPs is next, but will need to be discussed as there's one step that can be...troublesome.
Shadow you are great. Thanks for all the help you offered people in the past, and in the present.
Where are things at with WP right now - is it 100% done for 8.1 and the like? Not sure my old 8.1 can be updated to 10 - we will see.
No, not 10% done for. And almost all WP8 phones can be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile through registry hacks.
This is encouraging news Shadow. Thanks.
thanks man for all the amazing things you do!!
It's great to have a resource for WP stuff like you Shadow, much superior to Microsoft support. Is there an easy-to-follow guide to upgrade WP? It's my last resort :(
Easy to follow? No, but I can try to make one. I've never done it, but I can try it on my 822 when I finish with Hoth.
Great! Thanks buddy!
Godammit! That's over a dozen games I have significant progress in!

So not even upgrading to W10M will resolve the issue?
So many games left to play. Sad times. Hey Shadow, thanks for always advocating on behalf of us WP owners over the years too.
[pours liquor out]
Wait wait wait. So the Store got close and all achievements are unobtainable now? Please not
online achievements only or all achievements now impossible to sync?
Anything played on WP7/8 have to get upgraded to W10M and a new achievement unlocked to sync.
Online and Leaderboard appear to be completely down.
Here I sit still grinding final fantasy 3 for nothing then. Yay
So I just popped a 10 pointer on my old Nokia Win 8 phone. It added to my Gamerscore on the phone, but not anywhere else. If I can upgrade this phone, you believe the...
achievements would sync?
That's correct. From what I've been told, if you upgrade the phone to W10M and unlock a NEW achievement, it will sync the old ones pending on the phone as well.
Also worth noting you can also revert your phone's flash back to WP8, so you can complete a game, upgrade, sync, and revert back for the next.
Waaaaait a sec. I thought upgrading the OS wiped all your apps and game saves. So you're saying if I update my 8.1 to W10M I would not have to restart?
It only wipes you apps and game saves if the OS fails to install and you have to restore the old OS due to it bricking.
That has not been my experience, but it is good news. I'll try to update my older WP8.1 (if it takes the update) and see if I can finish a couple of games. Stupid Rabbids
game comes to mind. I have one achievement left in that one.
No way to revert back to WP8 without a reset though, right?
So I'm shit out of luck with my Lumia 925 I take it then?
Even if the phone doesn't natively support it, there are ways to apply the Windows 10 Mobile update. I'll need to read more into it though.
So is the recommendation to get the achievements on 8.1 then upgrade to sync, or upgrade then get the achievements on W10M with the converted 8.1 save?
Upgrade and then get, but certain games like Hoth require WP8.
Just a quick question, if I have game not started in WP8 and those games are supported on Win10 mobile, can I unlock chevs normally?
While playing in win10 mobile
So I got a Vampire Rush achievement when this news came out, to try it, and I just noticed it scanned into TA just now... odd? I haven't done any OS upgrades.
Was that on WP8 or 10?
It was an old Windows Phone 8, Vampire Rush game. Was surprised to see it show up on my feed today, with a date of Nov 10.
I had an achievement from 10/31 on WP8 show up as well
Yep, just did a test. Mine from Nov 4 has just shown up. Might be time for one last push on WP axhievements
sorry to dig up an older thread but looking for some advice. Just got some achievements in shark dash and toy soldiers boot camp. Neither of which are WP10 games
but I got the achievements on a phone that had been upgraded to WP10. I don't see the achievements in the xbox companion app or scanned into TA. Any thoughts?
They won't show on the Companion App because they're WP8 achievements. As for not scanning into TA, that's a separate problem. Verify the date on your phone is correct.
