PermalinkThis is pretty Cool. Streak at 15 days.
It's good to be back in the world of Xbox. Back in the day, I went with the original Xbox over the PS2 for the broadband multiplayer aspect that Live presented, plus the superior console power and 8(!) GB of built in storage. I then moved on to the 360 and achievements which were frankly amazing to me. Now I had a digital record of all the console exploits I had achieved (no pun intended)! Unfortunately, my 360 Elite red ringed and I wasn't in a position at the time to buy another so I stuck with my PS3. Fast forward to this month when I finally picked up an Xbox One S and found this fantastic site! Since I now have this blog opportunity, I thought I'd post a little info. Presently I am working 3 games, Halo Master Chief Collection, Forza 7, and Sonic the Hedgehog. I'm taking my time with Sonic so that I can get a quick achievement if for whatever reason I am not able to get achievements in the other games. I'll try to post a little ditty every day that I get an achievement about what it is and how I managed to secure it. Thanks for reading!

BetaSigX20 Welcome to the site, and congrats on the 15-day streak!

One word of warning if you want to keep the streak going... when you're playing a backwards-compatible game, make sure that the emulator is online (connected to Xbox Live) by hitting the cn_back and cn_start buttons at the same time. The 360 emulator can sometimes lose its connection, even if your console itself is online, and if you unlock an achievement when you're not connected to Live, it won't count for your streak.

I lost an 80-some day streak because I didn't know about that issue at the time, and I don't want to see it happen to others! laugh It won't be an issue for any Xbox One achievements, since those get timestamped regardless of whether or not you're connected... only backwards-compatible 360 achievements.

Anyway, good luck, and happy hunting!

IAteA11ThePies Welcome aboard.

An addition to what BetaSig said, I believe if when playing BC games you create a party (even if only you is in it) you will get a notification f the connection drops.
