Offline Achievement Troubles

Over my winter break I played a lot of videogames. Being at home for a month without broadband has created some issues however. All my achievements I unlocked while not connected to Live are now not registered on my account. I beat Halo on Heroic and Legendary and now logged into Live it no longer says I have those achievements. In the game it doesn't even show that I have the medals on the map designating that I've beaten it.... You can see how this is a bit aggravating... xbox.com claims this shouldn't be a problem, http://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/tips/achievements.htm, at the bottom of the page. I did however have my gamertag imported on a few friends' 360s. That might have changed things slightly. Does anyone know if there's any way to fix this, or have I just been royally effed by Microsoft?

Offline achivements are not a problem as long as you do not recover your account before signing back onto LIVE. Once you recover your account, the offline copy is no longer considered genuine. You weren't screwed by MS, you screwed yourself, it was in your power to not recover your GT.

Oh and welcome to the site, consider introducing yourself in the new members forum.

Yeah, I also learnt this the hard way, I ended up playing through all of the side quest guilds on Oblivion again, but I started a new character for it, so it's not all bad.

Ah, I guess that makes sense. I wish there was someway I could have been told that before I recovered my GT. I'll have to keep that in mind next time I go home. Thanks for the help, you were certainly more helpful than xbox customer support.

Yea i did the same thing for Mass Effect, I beat the entire game offline, went over to a friends house and played guitar hero, got a couple achievements, and when I came back and logged back on, poof, minus 800 gamerscore.

He means he was offline, at home, beat it. Then went to his friends house on his friends 360 ,got his gamertag recovered, without going online on his xbox.
then he went on live with his xbox and had to recover his tag.

the acheviments he got whilst offline were seen as illegit so they were deleted.

hope it helps
