General PC achv. question

Do all the Games with the "Games for windows banner have achv. or just the three on the list at x360a? I was going to buy Crysis and hoping it would have achvments.

I don't like Vista either. They should had sticked to their old formula, instead of trying to attract mac people.
Oops sorry forgot about that one and I was really on about Gears though and not Shadowrun or Halo 2. Vistas ok you have just got to have a lot of power with the hardware or doesn't go as well as u wud like. They should have made it more fun like XP was but at least u get power out of Vista.

Can u get seriously or not so seriously on the game modes Annex or king of hill seeing as they were part of the game from launch and weren't released via update and making them unable to unlock seriously or other achievements.

I'm considering buying the game, but I have three questions:

1. I'm sure it has been answered, but I want to be sure. Has any that has XP gotten the achievements? I don't want to buy the game to then find out I need to upgrade to Vista.

2. I know what the minimum requirements are, but I'm not sure if my PC would handle the game and/or run it smoothly.

I have:

AMD Athlon 64 Processor 3700+
2.19 GHZ, 1.00 GB of Ram
Nvidia 6600 GEforce LE graphics card.

3. Do Annex kills count for the achievements?

I was wondering if the COG Tag locations are on the same places as in the 360 version. Or are there some COG Tags spread out over the new and exclusive to PC campaign missions? Is there somebody who can verify that?

They are in the same locations but 3 new ones have been added.
Also you can gain achievements while using XP, I am / have!

Now I have a question, if I had two copies could I set up a LAN game and get the weapon achievements!?

Edit:
Well I can confirm that you can't get the achievements in LAN which sucks, and I'm guessing you can't use the same CD-Key online at the same time

Hmm well I don't think I understand how the weapon achievements are gotten on the PC I've had me & a friend in a player match, I've gotten 100+ kills on him and not had any weapon achievements

After I re-read the description of the weapon achievements It sounds like you need play 100 games of 3+ rounds and get at least one kill with that weapon for it to count, it does not count all the kills?

Anyone able to help me out with this?

yep thats exactly right. when I play longer games like annex or 19 round games I try to get one kill with each weapon/kill type.

Looks like there are three extra cog tags in the PC version. I don't see it mentioned anywhere, but my presumption is they are in the additional chapter.

Edit - All three found and the locations are now posted in the regular Cog Tags thread.

Dude, that is going to take more than two weeks to do. Couple months is more like it.

Hey guys, so i've been playing Gears since the original was released on 360 in 2006. I played online but sucked bad at it.

Now I have the PC version I decided to give online another go. I was doing loads better getting like 10-15 kills each round and managing to down like 2-3 people against just me. Has the online been improved for the PC.

Also sometimes when I've downed someone then shot at them it dosnt kill them and theres a weird sound. What is this?

Okay I'll answer some of your questions. The online mode for the pc is pretty much the same, except it runs a lot smoother. You are probably just bumping into people that arn't as good as people you've been owned by in the past

and that sound you are hearing.... When you are playing execution, the only way to kill a downed opponent is to get right up next to him and curb stomp his head, shoot his downed body from very close, or melee/chainsaw. If a downed enemy gets up, he is allowed 2 more downs until he just dies the next time he should get downed. The sound just means that you are shooting his downed body from too far away and need to get closer.

Be aware in warzone, downed enemies DO NOT get up, they just die after the bleedout time is over. you can kill downed enemies in warzone from as far away as you want, and will here no sound.

I have a few questions so since only 1 kill counts per game does that mean i have to play 10000 games to get seriously. Also i beat the campaign on insane but i didnt get the achievement for beating hardcore is that because my games got erased?

It could be. I know that my cog tags data got erased somehow when I needed to get 2 more for the all cog tags and I had to run through it all. Also do the public live games count for achievements because it says "achievements disabled for silver members" so gold members can get achievments?

You don't need gold anymore for PC GFW games, all features are now unlocked for silver accounts.

Just make sure you either play in Player matches or Ranked matches to get achievement progress.

So only player or ranked counts for achievements? If so i just wasted alot of time doing live list matches.

been a while so i figured id answer..... I got all my achievements in player matches u only need 1 other person for these, ranked achievements require 6 or more ppl for most of the match for ur kills to count towards "seriously" and the other ranked achievements. for the weapon achievements i would recommend playing 3 round matches and getting one of each kill per round, as only one counts per game towards each achievement .hope this helps
