    Strange Steam, 360, PC Xbox user question RE achievements on Xbox web app.


    So here's my issue.

    TLDR version...

    My achievements on the Xbox website (don't own a console), show at least 1 of my games with no achievements.

    I believe it's a bug that MS / Xbox would want to fix or might know a work around. Might relate to owning multiple copies (Xbox & Steam).

    Background...

    Last Xbox console I owned was a 360. Packed away somewhere.

    Have a good PC these days. Kept my Xbox Gold Ultimate going and play various Xbox games and free ones via my PC.

    Got a big Steam catalogue these days which is what I mostly play. Mainly PC direct games if you will.

    I am a HUGE fanboy of Valve and one of my fav games of all time is Left 4 Dead/2.

    So, I was happy to own multiple copies.

    360 gone to bed, lets re-buy via Steam.

    I have rebought but haven't played a HUGE amount as yet.

    Today I wanted to look up my achievements for Left 4 Dead 2 from the Xbox days and boy is it hard work finding the right place online (kinda feedback there)...

    Widget (windows key and G) nope, green app thingy (pin-able to task bar on PC) nope, xbox.com to find my way via my profile button (top right) to get there. Phew.

    Achievements, right? Sooo

    Drop downs. Filter to 360. Great

    No Left 4 Dead 2

    Xbox One. Could it be there?

    Nope

    Is it in PC games.

    Nope.

    But if I set the filter to ALL it clearly shows a lot my steam owned games, with 0 achievements for any of them.

    Left 4 Dead 2 is there with no achievements showing.

    I'm really not bothered as to why it seems to be unsure, perhaps due to me having a copy on my hard drive on this PC that is linked to Steam.

    But

    Why would an MS app / website / dedicated profile, on its own page not prefer any of my Xbox related data or accounts?

    Clearly it's looking at my hard drive here rather than a cloud?

    I'd rather just have my Xbox stuff in that place online.

    I'd rather any of my Xbox related apps and profiles take precedence in displaying Xbox related things?

    Is there an option I'm missing somewhere to set some sort of preference?

    Is this something you're aware of / feedback for a fix perhaps here?

    I assume it's uncommon as there's not many idiots like me who buy multiple copies like rabid fanboys. Lol

    My main reason for wanting to see my achievements was, I believe, you can find out total hours you've played in a given game and I'm intrigued to know about my cumulative hours in L4D2 but anyway, I'm rambling as always.

    I'd be appreciative of any answer that can be given.



    :)

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.
    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this Albino

    Just to let you know, most of the steam games aren't compatible with the Xbox achievements.
    If you want to earn achievements on PC you need to play the Microsoft store / Xbox app version.

    Now, going back to left 4 dead achievements done in the past. Right now there is an ongoing issue about some Xbox 360 achievements disappeared from everywhere except the Xbox 360 dashboard (I mean, only can be seen if you own a 360)
    Microsoft is already aware of the issue and they're working as soon as possible to fix it.
    (But there is no ETA yet)

    You can keep an eye on the main thread here:

    There is an issue with some Xbox 360 games not showing on the Xbox profile. Left 4 Dead 2 could be one of the games affected by this. Microsoft are working on it, it's just taking longer than they thought it would. Hopefully the issue will be fixed soon.

    Not receiving Achievements from games I have previously earned from Steam.

    Steam and xbox pc app share the same achievements. You can't reroll them from the same account.

    Do Steam Games Show Up in Achievements?

    Technically you will not be able to receive achievements on Xbox from games purchased from Steam.

    It is the Xbox app on PC that picks up the games and then add those games on your Microsoft account.

    So far i have not seen any way of removing the Steam games from your achievement list.

    The whole Smartglass stuff seems to lame to me!

    [quote user="JimmyRespawn"]
    I can't check Xbox One game achievement on my Smartglass app and Web. I was hardly to find who is online on my friends list cuz it's sorted by alphabet.

    The whole app isn't that smooth on Windows 8 and WP8. No notification support for it either.

    [/quote] Really? I can check and see all of my achievements no problem. Xbox One Smartglass app, I believe is completely different from the Xbox 360 Smartglass app.
