What is the procedure for reporting achievements missing from the list? This one isn't on there: "Tourist" 10g Burn 250 calories in each of three Kinect games.

I noticed that as well. The picture for Traveller is actually for Tourist (3 games at 250 calories). I could have sworn that it was correct when it was submitted but I posted another thread that will hopefully get this corrected.

Everyone on my friends list who has played the game cannot get it to register.

So, feel free to give it a shot, but it probably won't work for you, either.

On another note though, look at post #45 HERE because this guy claims that the Just Dance series calories are counting even though they aren't listed as a supported game. I can't confirm this but if you have one of those you can try those out.

I'll try that right now for the sake of information.
But also as a added note I did get about 200 calories counted for a game not on my supported list when I first started up my app and the only games I had played as of late were 5 micro lab challenge and Mini Ninjas Adventures (beside YS:FE2012 that gave me a little but not the total retroactive amount) so wouldn't surprise me if you can get calories burnt from more.

*edit. Just Dance 3 did give me calories burnt for PlayFit

Now this makes me wonder what other Kinect games work that aren't on the list. I'll try out Kinect Adventures as this was the only other one I had.

I just downloaded this app from an ad at the dashboard. I'm gonna try a couple of tricks to see which ones work and which does not. First off, I will try to alter my weight to see if the bigger I make myself, the more calories I will burn. (Worked when I had to burn calories on DC1 for the achievement.) I will make myself 2 foot 6 inches, 550lbs and born in the year 2000. (Children burn more calories, lol.) Another thing i'm gonna try is to play with a second account and have my friend play with me while I play DC2 and Kinect sports 2, to see if calories count for both of us at the same time. Those are just a couple of things i'll try. I will come back in a few days to see if these iterations work. Also, I will see if some other games that aren't listed will work as well.

I'm definitely curious to see your results just because there has been a discrepancy between the calories burned in game and what shows on the PlayFit. I've noticed that only 2/3rds of my calories from Junk Fu showed up on PlayFit (i.e. 600 calories burned in a session of Junk Fu but PlayFit said only 400 calories). Please keep us posted.

I hope some other games work because i got once upon a monster and played through the first chapter and no calories have counted I only need to get 1 more game with 600 calories but it looks like i got to get another kinect game, so what do you guys suggest as my fourth. I have already played junk fu, kinect sports season 2, and double action happy fine theater.

I've only got Kinect Adventures, Kinectimals, Dance Central 1, Haunt...and pretty much all the fun labs. .__. any know if they could get KA/Kinectimals or any of the other Fun Labs besides Junk Fu to count? Or is it only games that have a tracked calories burned feature?

Dance Central 2 is a great choice if you have gamefly. The calorie count isn't so much registered by movement but by song and difficulty.

Hey guys i hopped on kinect playfit today and Once upon a monster registered finally... Im halfway through the game and have only 54 calories registered but its okay now that it is working, maybe it is only certain minigames that count calories?

That's good to hear about Once Upon a Monster. I'll have to check if any of my playing last week counted.

Of course, I already got and completed Let's Cheer!, but whatever.

after playing through the entire game i checked back in Kinect playfit and it didnt count. So chapters 4 through 6 didnt count any, and neither did 1. So when i got the calories to register it was on one of the mini games in chapter 2 or 3.

So i've been playing Leela (yea, I know...) anyways, only about half of the game will count towards calories. The meditation half will register zero calories, which makes sense as you are only breathing really. But the other "activities" do register some calories, though very, very little. Something to keep in mind for those thinking about this game.

Anyone having problems using this app? Every time I load it up it signs me out claims I can't get a connection, I dashboard it and it signs back in. I tried 3 times and the same thing :(

Ugh, I just ordered both of these games but I guess I need to find out which minigames or activities in these games count towards the PlayFit calorie counter...

What do you guys think the best four games for getting easy calories are? So far from this thread it looks like Dance Central 2, Happy Action Theater, and maybe Junk Fu are the best so far?

I'll go through and add whoever had posted in this thread for the friend achievements, I'm attempting to get it as well.

Whoever else needs it my tag is Adorkablee.


Also, I just played through some of Star Wars and no calories were added. I did the Galactic Dance Off figuring that's what would have counted. Am I doing something wrong or is it probably just Playfit being dumb?

Unhappy Streak bug?

Anyone else had a problem getting the 4-day streak achievement?

Played 2 days, got the 2-day achievement, third day it registered as a 3-day streak, fourth day it was back to 1 again. No achievement.

Microsoft really needs to add more games to the supported games list, and a launch game via app feature.
