bug in achievements

That's just unfair - I try to complete my achievements, and I just got 9 stars against the killer, but still no "guilty as sin".

I had the same problem earlier with "eggs in the coffee" - the first time I achieved the 5 days before deadline, I did not earn the achievement.

Unfair!!! I waste my time on easy cases to get this achievement, and then when I finally have enough stars, it does not work.

You have to do at least intermediate cases in order to win any achievements. If you do easy cases, you won't be awarded with the achievement, no matter how great you're doing.

Yes, the minimum is intermediate. I did have a hard time getting more than 6 stars on AI previously, then to know that its not possible to get more than 6 stars on it. haha..

What are the achievement requirements? Or is that a closely held secret?

First requirement: the player must know how to read.

Oups! that was not a nice thing to say! sorry about that.

Please read the posts above: in order to get the achievements you have to solve at least intermediate cases. You can't get the achievements by solving beginner and easy cases.
Don't worry, keep solving cases and you'll understand by yourself if you try.

The only secret I can think about is curiosity - which doesn't mean asking on the boards the same question 100 times, but discovering new things by yourself (which not only saves you a lot of time, but is also much more fun than being told everything).

Hmm. How very rude Lu Peste. Never mind, I know in the future not to use this board for any advice.

If however there is anyone who would like to add further CONSTRUCTIVE help it would be much appreciated.

....@ Lu Peste;

Curiosity may be a good thing in this game after all.
It is sound advice to New sleuth or Newbies on this page.
Please keep it polite ...

Please read this Newbies.

I know achievements are hard to achieve but providing you have
taken the proper course of action Intermediate case...
as the first post said.

You will be well away...the harder the cases the more achievement chance.

Please ignore all rude comments posted on the board...

Thanks....

Yes, Miss DCI Dani Silver, that's exactly what I said, that curiosity is the key to achieveing anything in this game.

And yes, it was a very good piece of advice for everyone.

But no, I can't see anything rude in what I said, I only can see a bunch of people who don't like hearing (reading) the truth.
My mistake, I shouldn't have wasted my time answering questions for them.

And take note from me, as rude as you all say I am, that it is insulting to assume about a whole category of people (`Newbies`) that it is going to be difficult for them to achieve things.
I prefer to assume that they are more skilled than you are and therefore they will have absolutely no problem at all in achieveing anything (as long as they try).

to all sleuths lupu is not trying to be mean, i am not going to help anymore, when we try to be nice, and say"please read the message boards", then get accused of being mean. read the break down of the game when you go to community, then hit game documentation, and also please do the tutorial. this will help you out, then if you get stuck further, please mail one of the older more experienced players, and ask your question. just be nice about it, and you will get a response! happy sleuthing!
