  1. Is "Wins At Your Back" timezone-dependent?


    Hi,

    I'm running Windows 8.1 Version 6.3 (Build 9600), Microsoft Minesweeper version 2.2.1401.2303.

    March is the first full month that I've been running a 2.1/2.2 version of Minesweeper, and "Wins At Your Back" is the only achivement I hadn't yet won. I've been logging on just after midnight EST (which would be 9PM the day before in PST, in case this
    has anything to do with this achievement), playing just one board, then playing the other two boards either before going to work at 5AM EST, or after work some time after 3PM EST.

    Today is the last day of the month, I played one board just after midnight, and the achievement didn't unlock. I came home around 3PM, restarted Minesweeper, and the achievement still didn't unlock, even though I had won a board on the 31st in my timezone.

    I then played the second of the three boards around 3PM EST (noontime PST), won it, and "Wins At Your Back" unlocked immediately.

    I wasn't sure if time zone factored into this or not, but figured I'd post my observations. If it did factor in, I'm glad I took the precaution of scattering my wins across each of the 31 days I played, or else I'd be trying again in April. Is "Wins At Your Back" timezone-dependent? :)

    ...and, yeah, I'm glad that I now have 20/20 achievements Is "Wins At Your Back" timezone-dependent? :D

    :)

    Microsoft minesweeper "wins at your back" achievement glitched on Win 10

    I've tried this several months straight, only completing 1 a day, not going back to previous days, trying time jumping day to day from a new month, nothing seems to work to pop this achievement. Is there any work around to complete this. Currently i cannot
    finish 100% this game due to this glitch. This is the second Arkadium game to be a glitched as badly, Microsoft should really consider getting a INTERNAL studio to do any future entries in the casual series. I Miss when you employed Carbonated Games on
    tasks like this.

    Congrats on getting all the achievements, that's not an easy task!

    As to the time zones, it'll be based on our server time, which I believe is PST.

    OK, the change timezone to UTC-4, start game, change timezone back worked straight away. Bit of a crazy bug. i'm in NZ (GMT+12) and on Win 8.1 preview.

    If you get stuck at 'Retrieving User Info'- try changing your timezone to UTC -4:00, then try again. This has worked to unstick some users. Once you connect you can set your timezone back.

    Wins at Your Back Not Unlocking

    Another possibility is that swiping an app closed in Windows 8.1 really just suspends it, but doesn't close it. Combine that with a computer/tablet/whatever putting itself on suspend/sleep, and it's possible for Windows 8.1 and Metro apps to run for days
    without a true restart.

    There have been times that I've opened one of the Microsoft Games, gone to the Daily Challenges, and noticed that the screen displays yesterday's date. Yeah, I can go to the Calendar and click on today, but if the app thinks it's yesterday, could that affect
    this achievement?

    Just to be safe while working to earn this achievement, I've swiped Minesweeper closed a second time (which seems to close it for real), restarted it, then played a Daily Challenge after confirming that the main Daily Challenges screen was displaying that
    day's date.
