Problems with a My360Achievements Checklist? Post here. (READ FIRST POST!!!)

Ok, I decided to make a new one of these so I could have all the many solutions up front that will hopefully help people before they even need to post. If you don't even know how to enable lists or use this feature in general, please see this thread.

*******Essentially the fix for almost everything is just to delete the problematic checklist, re-enable it, and recheck everything.*******

NOTE: Disabling is different from deleting. To delete a list, hit the Red X from the "My Checklists" page. If you simply disable the list (inside the game's checklist), it won't solve anything. Here is a picture of where you need to click to delete a list.

1. Secret Achievements do not stay checked.
Well, this is an easy fix, but you will need to let me know what game is broken. There is an option in games under the admin system that says "Secret Achievements" and the default is 0 for no. When an achievement list is added that contains secrets we are supposed to go in and change the value to 1 for yes, but we don't always remember and the secrets will not save without that value changed. Once you let me know what game is broken I just have to change the value and it will work.

2. You say you fixed the above problem but the list still won't save!
If this is the case, please simply delete your checklist by hitting the Red X from the main list of checklists, then re-enable it and re-check everything. I apologize that this is the best fix, but it is.

3. I check an achievement and save, then it checks a different achievement.
This problem occurs when a game gets DLC achievements added that are secret. We don't know why it happens or how to fix it, but when we add secret achievements to a game after the original list has been imported, the list breaks completely for anyone who has been using it before the new achievements were added. Again, you will need to delete the checklist and re-enable it. And again, we are very sorry that this is the case, but it is.

4. My browser timed out/the site crashed while saving a checklist.
If this happens, the list will think it has received the data, updating your score, but not keeping the achievements checked off or it will check the achievements but not update your score. Again, deleting and re-enabling is the only fix. (This problem is much rarer now that it was previously, but just in case.)

5. I get an SQL error anytime I try to save achievements.
This was caused by some coding work we had done to speed up the saving process. Unfortunately the only fix is again to delete the checklist, then re-enable and recheck everything. This error will not occur in the future, but any games affected by the original mistake will need to be fixed.

6. DLC Achievements do not save.
When we add DLC achievements to a list, it becomes unusable if you had been using it before the DLC was added. We unfortunately can not find the cause, but again it is an easy fix of deleting the list, re-enabling it and rechecking everything.

Hey Pants, just to clarify for people like me who don't seem to be able to follow instructions exactly, clicking "Disable MyAchievements" while you're actually in a particular game's checklist is not the same as clicking the Red X from the general list of games. The Disable MyAchievements option will not fix this problem.

I'm having trouble with the checklists (obviously)

They don't seem to recognise sometimes when I've checked things (i.e, I check them off and save and when I go back the ones I just saved aren't saved)
I have tried the deleting the checklist and starting again but it doesn't seem to work.
This also happens on new games (one's I've not checked anything off on before and only just added to my checklists)

The other issue I have is that when I click save it's REALLY slow saving (been waiting about 5 mins for it to save my achievements for Battlefield:BC now, usually it's anywhere between 2-5 mins)

All other sites load as they should, I'm using Windows Vista and the same problem seems to occur in IE, Firefox and Chrome, please help me work out why it's like surfing on dial-up when I use the site

Yeah, my list is incredibly slow today as uberviolence said.

All sections of the site load OK, my games list loads ok, but when I click on a game to open the achievement list or add an achievement and try to save, it's taking more than 10 minutes.

Checklists are taking a long time for me as well. To enable them for a game, check and save it's probably taking upwards of 15 minutes per game.

Having issues with the Left 4 Dead 2 the scarfice achievements. Can not get "Supreme Scarifce" and "Kill Bill" to stay checked. Once I click save they both get unchecked and "Chaos Generator" gets checked in its place.

Did you bother to read the first post and try ANYTHING suggested there?

Fixed GHWT. The MBU achievements probably fall under #3, try deleting and re-enabling the list.

Also, speeds should be much better now from the maintenance Routine did on Monday.

This one seems to be specific to XBLA Ms. Pac-Man for me:

Quote:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'WHERE gameID = 184 and userID = 22117' at line 3
Other games on my list work and I can safely save Ms. Pac-Man with 0 achievements, but 1..12 result in that error message.

I have removed the game from my list and re-added it but, as expected, the SQL generated didn't magically fix itself

Anybody looking into this issue? Seems fairly simple to get someone to look at why the sql being generated isn't working.

This sort of relates to number 3.

In "Marble Blast Ultra", when you check one of the newly released achievements and then hit save (For example "Blue Gem Hunt"), they uncheck themselves and the total score remains the same as it was before. (Basically, the list isn't working).

Hey, Pants Party laid it out a little bit above here but I created a thread in the Marble Blast Ultra forum outlining the solution to the problem. (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=101638)

Basically, you must delete the tracking data for that game. (simply disabling it and then re-enabling it will not work)

Edit in response to reply: No problem!

Ok, it appears the database work that we had done last week created all the SQL problems. I am sorry to report, but deleting, re-enabling and re-checking any achievements is currently the only fix for this. This will work for any and all games that show an SQL error when you try to save achievements.

more of a suggestion rather then a bug

Hey Pants, not sure if this is the correct area to post this, if not, I apologize, but as a suggestion, for the games that have the DLC instead of automatically tacking on the extra gamerscore leave that option to the user. If we could check off the fact that we have the DLC then the extra achievements show up. I try to keep my achievements to at least 50% complete overall, but that is really difficult to do when there are games that have extra achievements that I will never get the DLC. This became really evident to me when halo3 released their 750 GS addition. Thanks in advance.

I noticed a bug on x360a.org and this seems like the right place to post it. If someone else already mentioned this, I'm sorry didn't really have time to read this whole thread.

On Fable 2, I have a checklist set up. Now if I go to the game in 'Guide' mode and select a few achievements and hit save, it is not saving them. This does work in the 'Achievements' mode. Not sure if you should even be able to update your checklists from the guide section, but I'm assuming since the boxes and save button are there, then they should be functional.

Thanks
