Gotta buy them all glitch / Possible cause + fix confirmed.

Greetings,

I know most of us are aware that this paticular achievement has been rather glitchy, But upon looking around from site to site, I cannot get any clear cut reasons as to why this happens, So I will post exactly what I have done as clearly as possible, As-well as post a link to the video that has cleared the issue up for me 100%


When the game was released:

I did not purchase my own copy of the game at first, A friend came over with all of his Skylanders and let me start a game using them.

We DID NOT transfer ownership of his Skylanders, We simply made it through the first 2 stages with his Skylanders before he left.

So to quickly summarize, I had Skylanders data stored on my X360 HDD before I had actually purchased my own Skylander character's that would be put under my own ownership.

Little brother purchased his own copy:

About 5 days ago my little brother bought his own copy of the game with the three standard starters. They didn't have any 3pk characters at Target so I had to wait to play with him.

Three days ago I purchased my own 3pk of characters and then while he was at school I continued from my previous save using my new Skylanders under my ownership.

Used my Skylanders in his game:

As I wanted to play with my little brother I started to use my Skylanders on HIS GAME before they had reached level 10 or purchased all skills.

While in his game he had acquired some of the soul gems that I had not acquired in mine, So I used his game to purchase skills for my character Drobot, Which may have been part of or the actual cause.

Upon going back to my game and buying the final skill, The achievement did not pop, Which I think it was because in my game, I didn't get the Soul Gem for Drobot.

So hopefully that was a good summary of what I have done.

The fix that allowed me to get the achievement:

In this following video it is explained in very good detail as to what to do, I can confirm that this works.

1: You completely transfered your data to a USB device? (Both saved game and global data?)
2: You started a brand new fresh game?
3: You bought your final skill that was not the soul gem one?

Yes.
The first time I made the mistake of my Gillgrunt not being a level 10.

This time I had trigger happy all the way up to ten and the rubber bullets upgrade left.

Transferred the save files to a memory stick.

Started the game again. Got to stage 3 and then bought the last upgrade.

Now the only potential snags I can see are as follows:
1. I was playing with my son, so maybe it should have been a single player game till stage 3.
2. I saw in the video you linked that ownership should be claimed. I have only used my skylanders on my xbox, so they should all be owned by me.

Will make another attempt at it. Me and my son have been chugging along getting all our characters up to level 10.

This should not be that hard to get one achievement.

Finally got the achievement. It was definitely due to the ownership issue. Thanks for your help.

It may work, Most people play with other people so I have not seen anyone NOT have this problem.

Has anyone tried saving up enough money and then purchasing them all at once? I ask because I too have been affected by this glitch. I have 5 fully upgraded Skylanders. Tried moving save files, ownership, everything. I am going to try this and will report back once I know.

I would give that a shot still, provided you have either Cloud activated or a USB device to do so. That is the only known fix for this issue that I am aware of.

Not that it matters much, but I can confirm that the glitch still happens if you've never played with anyone and your Skylander has never been on another console or profile. It also still occurs if you save up your money and buy everything at once. I'm currently trying the tip from the video, but my hopes aren't high.

EDIT: Success! With these glitched achievements, I am finally done with this damn game.

Even though it is late, congrats just the same on completing your game.

Know this is a very old thread but just for those wondering this is still an issue as I've gone crazy the last few days trying to get this to work, found this thread today and finally got this damn achievement to unlock. Now I just need to upgrade my three Gill Grunts to unlock that damn Only Use His Weapon achievement as I've never used him before.
