Achievements

Just got back into this game for the first time since last May. I see that GFWL is gone. Are we able to still earn xbox achievements anymore for the PC version? Unfortunately, I only need the Knights Honor achievement, I believe, so that kind of sucks if not. Thanks for any replies.

GFWL is not gone, and achievements are able to be earned as normal. Dante XBA was just recently unlocking Dark Souls GFWL achievements last month.

Steam actually just patched Dark Souls so it is now ran on steamworks instead of GFWL not sure if there is a workaround or not.

How recent was this? Dante confirmed it a month ago to still be working in the RTOTD.

I can still unlock achievements since I ran Dark Souls natively in GFWL. You may or may not be able to force it to run in GFWL but I am not sure if it's possible, so... I guess it's a tinkering thing.

You'll need to tinker around to have it running on GFWL. Luckily I finished it before it got patched.

Also, unless there is a workaround to change it, the Steamworks version is no longer an optional beta on Steam afaik. I believe a few weeks ago it was changed to be the default version, and GFWL was taken out of the Steam version entirely.

Update: According to Trueachievements the only achievements I have unlocked for the game have been the first two, both unlocked on Feb 7th. I have had a 3rd unlocked on the 15th.

Disheartened, I tried getting a 4th today, unlocked it, and checked TA 2 hours later and it hasn't unlocked either.

My conclusion is you can't get achievements from GFWL after support was removed completely.

Well, February 16 is when the transfer process has been completed:

Thanks. Was hoping that wasn't the case. I have no problems earning all the achievements over for the steam system if I have to. The game still is that fun, but I was hoping to at least finish them up for xbox cause I do only have the last one left and was close to it.

Glad I ended up doing the PC version in 2013 when I heard GFWL was going down.

Doing the 360 version now.
