  1. When did the problem start for you? I tried recruiting again tonight, now that the countdown timer's finally expired. The timer restarted at 30 minutes, as it should, but I still can't recruit anyone for gold even though I have 10 gold available.
  2. I don't know if all the Goals I've completed (and collected upon) being able to collect on them again was a source of the glitch, or a cause of it. I just wanted to let someone know the problem I'm having and if anyone is having the problem as well. I logged on today to collect my 7 day successive log in award, I collected 10 Gold the 2nd week in a row. I had an empty slot in my Ludus, and selected it to see what gladiators were available. Oenemause <sp> was there, for 7 gp. Since I already had a sword and shield gladiator in my ludus, I went to Sepultua (or whatever it's called) to work on the 5 in a row victories for the achievement, thinking if I lost with the sword and shield guy it wouldn't be too bad, since I was about to ship him to the mines anyway. After the 2nd fight, he died, so instead of resurrecting him, I just sent his corpse to the mines. After this, I checked my goals to see if I had completed any that I hadn't realized. It turned out that all goals I had previously completed were available for collection again, so I collected them. When collecting them, I got 5 silver, 7 fame, 4 gold, and a blank something or other (it was just a white box were the picture normally would appear). After collecting all these while not ill gotten, not exactly honest, but not by any wrong doing on my part, I went back to my ludus and selected one of the two empty spots that I had (remember I had one empty already, and a new empty spot after I killed my sword and shield guy), to recruit oenemaus. When I went in there, I had 50 gold, but I was unable to put him into my ludus. I clicked on him, got the confirmation screen, I said yes, the confirmation screen disappeared, but nothing else happened. I also noticed that the time to reset the recruitable gladiators was set to 5000ish minutes (about 3 days). I then selected one of my fighters to see if I could buy some equipment, and I couldn't spend any gold on equipment, but when I bought something for silver, all the gold I had disappeared (both the 40 gold I got from my goals, and the 10 gold I should've had from my week of logging in). I went back to my goals, but they were still set as all collected. I exited the game through the menu, restarted it, and was able to collect all the goals again, so now I had 40 gold (I had 50 before, but that was counting my 10 gold from logging in all week). I went back to the recruit screen, but still couldn't get onemenaus, so I tried to get a silver gladiator with silver (thinking having to two open spots was what was glitching everything), but wasn't able to recruit one of them either. Has anyone had an issue like this before (or having one now), or have a way I can fix this? Pending any useful replies, I guess I'll wait for three days and see what happens when the recruits finally refresh. <<< Update >>> Tried it again today, and as soon as I started legends mode, I was able to collect the 7-day rewards (3K silver, 10 gold, and 2 boosts). Went immediately to my ludus to recruit Oenemaus, but I still couldn't recruit him (or anybody), and the refresh timer was at 3K some odd minutes (which I think is appropriate for counting down from 5000 minutes from last night). I checked my goals, and the same 10 were available to claim again. I didn't claim them, but started a fight just to see what would happen. After the fight, the 10 gold that I had from my reward disappeared. Since I lost the gold I deserved, I figured I'd collect the goal rewards, and then quit the game. When I quit I had 40 gold and 2572 silver (just wondering if my silver gets reset too). <<< New Update >>> Started the game up again, and I was at 0 gold and 1202 silver (I don't remember how much silver I started with before all these problems, but I do know I had 0 gold)
  3. Start the game and select legends mode. When you do this, you get a bonus that will accumulate every day in a row that you log in. By the third or fourth day, you can collect 1000 gold, which is more than enough to buy two low level gladiators to start with.
  4. ... I guess I won't be getting those achievements then. It's not worth it. I upgraded to 8.1 before and it was horrendous. Much worse than 8.0!
  5. I think I figured it out... open the store, select settings from the charm menu, then select app updates... Is this what you were talking about? If so, that didn't work for me. No updates were available. I'm running v1.8.0.31029 of Minesweeper and Win8.0, and still not getting achievements to pop.
  6. How do you force an update in the store?
  7. I recently completed Googly Eyes, Kinect Me, and Build A Buddy, and wanted to delete them from my hard drive. I was able to find and delete Build A Buddy from my hard drive in the Games tab, but the only thing in the Googly Eye and Kinect Me folders were my save games (videos, images, etc.) Where are the applications stored so I can purge them so they no longer come up in Kinect Labs? Also, how should I start Kinect Labs? The only way I've been able to get it to come up is by putting a pin on the file from my download queue; and to open it, I have to select "Download" and once the guide menu comes up, I can select "Play Now". Kinect Labs isn't under "My Games", "My Apps", or Recent tabs.
  8. I didn't have problem with Build a Buddy, but I am having the same issue with Kinect Me and Googly Eyes. Have you figured anything out?

  10. Is it required to purchase anything to get all the achievements in this game? I don't want to start it if it turns out to be another Game Room.
  11. I know this is an old post; but I wanted to reply though it probably won't be helping the OP. I don't think this is a good game at all for n00b RTS gamers. This game was too much ported from the PC, and the controls don't work at all for the console. A better console based RTS for people new to the genre would be Halo Wars. The unit and building hierarchies are much easier to follow, and the units' special attacks are much easier to access, and easier to implement (though not as varied as C&C). while C&C is a good game, mastering it will require a large investment in time for learning each units capabilities and all the build hierarchies.
  12. Is this game actually free (that's the section it's listed in on Windows 8 Store), or is it a demo? I don't want to get an achievement in the game only to find I need to purchase it to finish it (like Game Room).
  13. I saw that this is listed as "Free" on Windows 8, but there are quite a few of the games that are listed as free, but are demos that require you to spend real money to unlock the higher levels and complete all of the achievements. I don't want to bother testing it if I'll unlock some achievements on my gamer card but can't complete it without further funding. Also, does anyone know of a list of the Windows 8 games that are actually free?
  14. Thanks for the heads up. I was wondering how far I'd be able to get without purchasing the game. I guess Demos are considered full games now? I'm going to check around for any of the "free" games before downloading now. I'm just afraid they're going to start popping achievements when you first open the game, and then expect you to pay outrageous amounts to complete it (like Game Room).
  15. I'm not sure how would take having RockSteady again. The campaign was awesome, the art work was great, and I think they do a real good job. BUT... after seeing the DLC they created for this game, I think they either gave up, or they're getting to be too money hungry. I'm not talking about HQR, that was awesome, but the Robin/Nightwing/etc. bundle packs. Those are completely worthless. No effort went into those! the only addition in them was Nightwing, and he doesn't even have a full move set. My biggest fear is that Rock Steady is going to start nickel and diming for a lot of very small content in their next game.
