glitchy DX DLC achievements fix

Ok, so the HELP "Metal Sonic" achievement not unlocking thread details a fix for the people having trouble with the Sonic Adventure DLC stuff not unlocking. I am one of these people, I can't get these damned DLC achievements to work and I'm tired of trying to figure out why without autistic retards making up BS claiming its "YOU SAEV CORRUPTED", 'SEGAS SERVERS', or 'YOU'ARE NAT SETTINGS...' which is utter baloney.

x360a is the ONLY place where I've seen people resolve this issue.

The Metal Sonic thread is a mess and gets off topic a lot, but it says there was a fix at one point. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but there was no official patch for the game, the 'patch' Sega implemented was replacing the Sonic Adventure download meaning you have to delete and download the game again for the fixed version. You can tell which one you have based on the size of the game as it appears on your system. In a nutshell, if its 1.6 gb big you will probably get screwed. A newer fixed version was released that is 1.5 gb big. The 1.5 gb one will also allow you to unlock 2 of the bugged achievements if you already met the requirements on a save for the crappy broken version.

for the Dreamcast Collection version the DX DLC is compatable, but the DX achievements will glitch no matter what. The game save is interchangable with the XBLA version thankfully meaning you SHOULD be able to salvage your blood, sweat, and tears and get the DLC achievements (granted you get the non-buggy downloadable version).

currently the Sonic Adventure on XBLA will download to your system as a 1.6 gb file. Sure, it will say the game is 1.5 as its downloading, but it will appear as 1.6 gb on your system before its even finished downloading. As in somehow the buggy old version is back up for download.

Someplace somewhere, I came across a forum post that stated Sega 'fixed' Sonic Adventure because they were getting a lot of complaints about it. In other words, if you are experiencing problems go to

and complain

I just downloaded the 1.5GB file and it appeared as 1.6GB for me as well in my storage. I haven't started the game yet as I purchased it here with this sale this week but...I'm concerned, fearing that once I do everything these DLC achievements won't unlock...

Anyways, I'm just confirming I have the same issue with having a 1.6GB file appear on my console like yourself. Hopefully someone comes in here with a fix or answer...why it lies and says it's 1.5 on the Marketplace I don't know.

yeah the file size is really weird

its aggrivating to know that in the other thread Sega fixed it not too long ago and somehow the fixed version was taken down.

problem is in the game's coding somewhere conflicting with the DLC stuff. Some people have no problem with the DLC achievements, for others (like me) if you can't get 1 you won't get any no matter what is done even if you delete everything and restart. The 12 core achievements are no problem tho.

If you feel like taking a gamble, you could try blowing thorugh the mission mode as soon as you get access to it to see if the dlc screwed up on you too.

Yeah it's all pretty lamesauce, from what I can tell, you need to download SA that has the filesize of the trial (meaning 1.49gb download, 1.5gb appearance in storage), which you know.... isn't there. I sent a complaint to SoA a few days ago about it.

So the glitch is back then . I downloaded the game when it went on sale in December and from that point on it was fixed , the size of the game then was 1.5gb. Now that another sale has come around they have clearly messed it up again. The best thing to do is wait until the sale ends and download it again and pray that it is the 1.5gb version because if it is the 1.6gb then your chances of getting those DX achievements are 0%

This is out. Sega probably won't fix this. I'm sick of it.

I checked my download of the Sonic Adventure that I got which was a 1.6GB. Apparently, this release date was on 2012. The game initially came out in 2010. Only the full game was released in 2012. This is the true problem as to why those DLC achievements are no longer unlockable.

Can someone upload his working version somewhere please?
I'm looking around the web for the working version, the only one file i've found was the DEMO...

I saw that some people that was complaining about this problem unlocked the achievements with a f****** software (shame on them)...
