View Full Version : Cheevo Question: What does "Non-Simulated" mean?

03-07-2012, 08:34 PM
Does this mean, no player vs player game i.e. you have to play verses CPU? I played with a friend and should have unlocked a few cheevos in one game like 3 strikeouts in an inning. Nonthing unlocked.

Yahoo says..."A non-simulated game is one that you have to finish entirely on your own. A simulated game is when you have the computer play it for you."

I'm guessing that it's you playing the whole game against the computer/console.

No, I played player verses player with two human users.

Because playing with another human can be boosted, you might have to play against the CPU to get them to unlock. Again, I'm guessing.

Sometimes they just don't unlock when you get them. And when you say you got the three strikes outs in an inning, was it 1-2-3, or just getting all three outs via a K? The game (at least in 2k10 (never played 2k11) and I'm assuming 2k12 would be the same) only counts striking out the side as 1-2-3.

That said, non-simulated means not in My Player or from simulating any section of the game. Again, if you were playing against someone else, either you didn't quite do what is needed, or the achievement just didn't pop that time (had that happen a few times in 2k10).

Something must be where you cant unlock achievements in player matches with friends. I would have got 1-2 last night but when I finished the game I didn't have any achievements. Must be Ranked or Play Now/Franchise games only.
