A Good Guy Appeal (Complete)

Post by A Good Guy » Mon Jan 21, 2019 10:51 pm

Hi, a really long time ago, I used software on certain games to unlock all of the achievements - chalk it up to childhood idiocy.

Discord: A Good Guy#5354
Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/id/theutmostswagger5543/
The games in question are:

- Shadow Warrior
- The Stanley Parable
- Guardians of Middle-earth
- Portal
- Alien Rage - Unlimited
- F1 2013
- Papers, Please
- Legends of Aethereus
- Knock-knock
- Glare
- How to Survive
- Rocksmith 2014 Edition - Remastered
- Soundodger+
- Football Manager 2014

Since these were done a while ago, and minimal work was put into them, you can simply invalidate all of those games. I appreciate you guys taking the time to give me a second chance at this!

Thanks for appealing - we will review shortly.

Can you tell me how those games above were cheated?

I believe it was some achievement unlocking software.

It was a while ago, but I think it was Steam Achievement Manager (SAM).

Once again, that was a long time ago, and my play style has shifted to being a completionist, so I would never cheat achievements nowadays.

Thanks again for looking into this, and I apologize for taking so long with the response - the beginning of the semester is always hectic/stressful :cry:

Okay, unfortunately any game where you used SAM cannot simply be "invalidated" - SAM usage is kind of the "ultimate cheat" for Steam hunting so you will need to fully relock those games as described in the FAQ: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=6

Please let me know if any other games were cheated or had achievements unlocked/relocked by a tool.

The games listed above are the only ones that were cheated or tampered with in any way. I went through my entire Steam library when I created my appeal on AStats just to double check.

And I'll get on relocking the games.

Once again, thank you for your assistance with this process.

Okay thanks, please relock the games, then open them up to make sure they don't re-pop cheated achievements, and then update the games manually on achievement trackers you use and report back here once done.

Alright, I went through the games, and relocked a majority of them. Some of the achievements I kept due to them not being cheated, and I removed any that had duplicated unlock times.

We should be good.

Sorry but games that used SAM need to be fully relocked. SAM-usage is the ultimate taboo for achievement hunting really, so the punishment is rather harsh. Be aware that AStats only allows one single appeal for SAMing, and then perma-bans for life.

Alright, it's kinda late now, but I'll get on that when I get home from classes tomorrow. Not that great that I have to remove legitimate progress, but I guess I gotta learn my lesson somehow.. Even if there were only very few legit achievements.
