Poker night 2: Bounty Glitch ~ Didn't receive items

posted by gokum on - last edited - Viewed by 7.8K users
Well I was wondering if anyone else had this problem, and if they did please tell me how to fix it if they could.

What happened was I complete my set of bounty tasks and then claptrap put his I love gaming statue up for grabs. surprisingly I won it and then I went to download the award and yes I have the bounty in-game but not the achievement thus leading to me not getting the dapper disguise for TF2. Obviously I can't win it back and get the achievement since I have already won it.

Please help!

  • i also have this problem if you find a way to fix it can you please contact me
  • Same problem here.
    But for me, it was a problem that my internet connection shutted down, and when i get the item in-game, the archiviement didn't come.
    So, what we need to do?
    Please answer us. Thanks
  • Yeah I also have this problem, I won the tournament thus winning Ash's cursed book but didn't receive the achievement "Book 'em". So now when I go into TF2 I don't have my Pyro mask, but when I go into my winnings the book is there.

    Could someone from Telltale Games please answer us and resolve this issue. Thanks.

    Note: I'd be happy to provide pictures of the page which shows my lit up book if need be.

    Not granting achievements is a long-running issue with Steam's offline mode.
    You might want to try hitting up Steam Support (it'd help to take screenshots) and see if they're willing to grant it to you.

    Otherwise, it should work if you are willing to restart the game.
    My second-playthrough of Portal 2 was online, and it granted the achievements as if I were earning them for the first time.

    Hopefully this helps!

    Due to the Steam architecture, achievements cannot be acquired while playing in offline mode or without an active internet connection. For more information on Steam’s policy regarding achievements, please see the following thread:

    https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=4462-UIOB-0425

    Unfortunately, the only way to unlock the achievement and corresponding TF2 item would be to remove your save game and prefs.prop file from your system and reacquire the achievement while playing online.
  • Where can I find the prefs.prop file?

  • Bugger, looks like I'll have to start all over again. Oh well, thanks Matt. You've been a great help :)
  • I was playing offline and won the Brock Samson item but it didn't register as an achievement. I am very dissapointed and hope they fix this very soon. Brock won't put the item up again or anything.
  • There's nothing to fix, if you play offline and win an item, you don't get the achivement, hence you don't get the TF2 item. You'll need to do what Matt said to fix it.
