Is the "Hero of Might and Magic" achievement glitched for anyone else? I realized I missed a "hidden quest" with Aiden after finishing the game. I went back and finished it, which may have caused it since I technically "finished" the game before doing all the quests.

Just wondering if it's broken for others as well.

i didnt get the achievement either, all campains say i have done all side missions.
i got to the final boss, lost so i went back to lvl up, and beat all the guy on the way down the tower that give you the last 3 artifacts, maybe doing it in that order glitched it for me

@Kohrin Soulez
I guess you already have beaten the bounty hunter, since you got the achievement? That was the last one I was missing.

Just an update, i managed get this achivement, i did campaign 5 upto top level of the tower.. no spoiler but where your sidekick for campaign 5 stays behind... THEN save and complete anything missed in past campaigns.

Do you mind me writing this in the guide so that everyone else knows where to save or make sure they have things done?

also Glitched for me.
Beat the endboss and finish bounty hunter afterwards, trying to load an older savepoint and hoping for the best

Glitched here...

*minor spoilers*

didn't know I had to backtrack to get the last three artifacts on the last campaign. On my save that is right before my partner leaves, when I backtrack there are only two enemies with artifacts... I have a later save on that is right before the final battle and all three guys are there, but once I get the artifacts (got that achievement...) and beat the final boss there's no achievement.

I have all the silver shields done on the other campaigns (I assume those are the side quests?)... on the last campaign I got all the artifacts and freed the wizard that restocks your troops... is there another side quest I'm missing?

This glitched for me as well, I haven't taken the time to replay the campaign, but I was missing a few artifacts in previous campaigns. Someone else conjectured that they didn't get credit for the achievement because they started their save on the demo version, which I did as well. I am not sure which is the cause, seems more likely that you have to complete all side quests prior to Cyrus staying behind.

I replayed the entire game in 16 hours and got the achievement :P (the achievement pops at the start of the credits). You cannot get the last artifact (and therefore side quest (?)) until you're at the very last battle and then you must run out and backtrack until you see him.

I did this on my previous play through and it did not unlock. It may be because I continued from the trial version, but I can't verify that. Anyways... ~47 hours of game play in singleplayer and I would guess ~8 hours of multiplayer later I have all 200 points :). This is still a very awesome game, but the buggy achievement sucks.

Hey Guys -- Bugged/Gliched for me as well. I fully intended to replay the campaign anyhow but i wanted to know:

What can i skip this play-through since i have all the other achievements? What type of fights DON'T count towards "Hero of M+M"?

Great game, to bad they didn't address this issue. IMO probably related to me starting the game as demo version...:cool:

I do not think it is because of the demo version, I think it has to do with where you backtracked to get your last few artifacts. And for what counts as a side quest check the achievement guide HERE (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=306039). Follow the side quest guide under Hero of Might and Magic, top of the second post.

So, if you haven't completed everything before you fight the final boss, you're screwed? Is that the general consensus?

I finished everything before the last battle and didnt get the achievement...i'm pretty sure thats because i continued from the trial version :mad:

Yeah I think it is pretty much confirmed now, 99% of people who haven't gotten this achievement is because of them starting from the trial version.

Can also confirm that.
Continued from the trial and didn't get the achievement.
Pretty sure I did everything.
Doing my second playthrough now. Hope it unlocks after that.

It should, just make sure you get everything again, just to be sure. Especially in the 5th campaign where it doesn't tell you if/how many side quests there are

Yes but as far as I know it doesn't tell you if got everything for all campaigns. The Shield with the exclamation mark is already there when u start a campaign and the number is the artifacts-counter (?).
Anyway I think there isn't much to miss in the 5th campaign. Just the guy that restocks your elite units, the treasure chest in the starting room and the guys when you backtrack from the final battle, or am I missing something here?

The Shield is your number of side quests per campaign. There are 10 artifacts in each campaign. If you look at the artifact choosing screen there is a little number in the bottom right like "6/10" that is the number of artifacts you have.

The 5th campaign is crazy complicated. Check out the guide for everything I did. That campaign doesn't tell you anything when you complete side quests, but I don't think there are any for the 5th campaign, I just wrote everything I did down just to be sure.

Just wanted to point out that the developers know about the problem:
http://www.capybaragames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1193

A lot of people there also said they started from the trial. ;)
I hope there will be a fix soon as it glitched for me too. As much as I like the game I don't want to play it all along again just for a glitchy achievement ... :(

Yup, I actually posted on the thread in that link. ;)

All around the internet, whether here, gamespot, cabybara forums, people have gotten jipped. It is unfortunate, and capybara is looking into the problem. At least this game is fun to play through so getting the achievement won't be awful haha

Mine is glitched too.. :(
Before the final boss I saved on a different save so I hoped I could finish only one other bounty (the one you have to take out the bounty giver himself) and bring in two other finished jobs, but it didn't work. :(
Has someone tried to clear cache and re-download the game?

EDIT: Tried it, didn't work.

Took down the 3 guards, and just finished the boss for the sixth time, but no luck here. :(

You started on a trial version and then switched to the full version right? You have to complete the whole game again. Sorry man

Im in the very first area of the game (when you get the deer), and it will not let me leave the area, the guy keeps telling me to go to the grotto, I have been batteling for days in that grotto, and almost level 8, but now its pretty boring.. do I have to keep at it or has my game gone crazy go nuts?

Yeah, not much else you can do other than that. Sorry man

hmmm are you sure you defeated the guy in the grotto? If you did your game has gone crazy haha. You should probably start over, you aren't that far in anyway

Maybe you are lucky. After 5 weeks of waiting for it I got annoyed and simply played it again. With my normal luck then there will be a fix in about one week later. ;)
But I suggest it's better to simply play it again, you will be faster anyway. :)

Alltrough I have the achievement now (which took me only 20h instead of the initial 50h), I'm a bit disappointed by capybara. Creating such a great game, but beeing unable to fix such an obvious bug in weeks. I don't believe it's so deep rooted, they can't spot it. Also their forum is down since about 2 weeks now showing always the same error. For me it leaves some bitter taste on such great flavour. :(

This is a pretty game-breaking glitch - you play the whole entire game and get everything in the game, then you beat it and find out that you don't get the 30 point achievement... all because you purchased this from the trial version? What a waste of ~30 hours if you have to go back and do it all over again?? I think should be emphasized more under "glitched achievements" on the game guide - its frustratingly annoying.

I sure hope they release a patch that automatically checks if you've got the "complete" shields on every map so I don't have to replay this game.. it was fun once, sort of.

Ah, of course! The Xbox360 patch hasn't been released yet ... It has been completed and sent off to Microsoft but we are still awaiting a release for it. We have not been given a time frame for it's release so we can only say it should be out "imminently." Once the patch is released (along with the new DLC) you should only have to update and play a single battle to receive the achievement.
Regards,

Capy


A+ rating on their customer service by the way! Just wanted to share the good news that if you're in the same boat as me, you shouldn't have to play the whole game over again if you don't want! :woop:

Hmm...downloaded the patch, and the DLC, tried their remedy to no avail - let's hope tech support will be able to find a remedy.
