Sylence's appeal (Complete)

Post by Sylence » Mon Oct 25, 2021 7:56 am

Hey mods, to put it simple: I was young and dumb and cheated for some achievements.
After discovering this whole achievement hunting community and wanting to get more into it I don't want to rank higher than I actually achieved myself.

Discord: Discord: Sylence#4923
Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197969197074

Games:
Universe Sandbox - I changed my PC clock to unlocked the "One Year" (and "One Month" and "One Day") achievment and I used a .bat-file to repeatedly start the game for the "Startup Too Many", "Startup Kilo" and probably "Startup Hecto"
Stanley Parable - Again, I changed the PC clock to unlock "Go outside" EDIT: Okay from reading further I noticed that the "Unachievable" is - well - unachievable. So I obviously did something there, too (but I don't know what anymore)

I appreciate you staff members taking time out of your lives to do this thankless volunteer job by giving me a second chance to play clean and fair - thanks so much!

Hi thank you for appealing. You may use SAR in the FAQ to relock those achievements, please restart the games afterwards to make sure those achievements don't repop.

You are allowed to use a .bat file for the startup achievements. It is only the timeskip for Sandbox and Stanley that is disallowed.

Both games are currently invalidated for points and once relocked they can be revalidated.

Hi, sorry for the late response.

I used SAR to relock those achievements and started both games. The achievements did not repop and don't show on as unlocked in the games' achievement lists.
However they still appear in the achievement showcase on my profile. Is this supposed to be correct or did I something wrong?

thats odd, that might be steam profile not updating, it is Tuesday maintenance which steam acts weird on that day. , can you go to edit profile and change your showcase back and forth and see if it refreshes? Not technically an issue with us, as long as they're relocked and appealed so we can re-validate the games on tracking sites.

Changed the showcase back and forth but they still appear.
Guess I have to unlock them for real :D

EDIT: Okay unlocking a new achievement updated the showcase and now everything looks like it should.
