Created by Rick (gibbed on SA, rck on FP).

Supported Games

This tool can support any game that has achievements on Steam, even if it is not listed directly in the dropdown box. Simply type its ID into the editable dropdown box text and refresh.

Now version 6.3 (hotfix)!

What's new? See the blog.

Instructions

  1. Install Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 if you do not already have it installed.
  2. Download Steam Achievement Manager 6.3 (hotfix).
  3. Extract it to a directory that is convenient to you, but not your Steam directory. It's a ZIP file, if you don't know how to extract a ZIP file then you probably shouldn't be trying to use this tool.
  4. Run Steam if it is not already running.
  5. Exit any active VAC protected games if any are running. While this tool does not directly interact with any game itself, it is better safe than sorry.
  6. Run SteamAchievements.exe and do whatever you want in it.

Frequently Asked Questions

SERVERSIDE ACHIEVEMENTS? WUT?

That's right. Steam now has the capability to secure achievements from being managed. Naturally this means you can't unlock them. Good for them. :)

Will I get banned for using this?

No you will not get banned because the program does the same thing as it would've been done if you earned the achievement ingame

My achievements were reset!

Use the tool again? (Valve hasn't reset achievements since the original medic pack release)

Spacewar?

It's a sample game to demonstrate SteamWorks API to developers.

CHEATING! HACKING! EARN IT OMG! PLAY ON ACHIEVEMENT MAPS! YOU SUCK! ARRRRRRGGGGGHHH!

It's your own decision if you want to use it or not

Troubleshooting

My program does not start when i opened it

This error can be common and sometimes DEP has to be disabled before you starting it. Follow the guideline here in order to disable it

Some games show IDs instead of names for achievements such as TF_KILL_NEMESIS

You're probably talking about Portal, Half-Life 2: Episode Two, and Team Fortress 2. These games had achievements before the system for achievements was really nailed down in a standard way, so some achievements do not get translated text from Steam, they get the IDs instead. This is a bug in Steam that simply hasn't been fixed because it's such a low issue that doesn't occur normally.

This has been fixed.

'generic error' (error #2)

You don't own the game or the game does not have achievements. If you or it really does, restart Steam and see if the issue clears up.

Access Violation! BUH?!

Contact me through either SA or FP so I can work the issue out with you.

Is this amazing tool for real or is it a virus you're doing??!!

It's not a virus, it's a tool for actually getting achievements which you probably struggled with before to get.
