did that, exactly step by step... similar to what I've done before, except I usually choose to say it's Bhaal rather than Poison... still nada. Have used Safana as the ritual sacrifice before, too.

Also, what about Grim Deeds to Come? anything at all on that? or is it just doomed to be forever unobtainable?

Chat interface with T key binding doesn't pop up to check, (idk if that's new, never used it tbh) but I checked in EE Keeper... the global "ACH_YOU_CHOSE" doesn't show up, not even with a 0, after that. Even editing it into the globals setting doesn't work, tried in various states. Yep, pretty sure this one is broken.

#7 Updated by Anders Svensson over 3 years ago

Both bugs have been reported to the developers. They are unobtainable as far as I know for now.

Thank you for your efforts, I do appreciate it. Might still be a teeny bit upset at not being able to 100% cheevos, but thank you for trying.

Hi Beamdog,

Currently it is impossible for Steam SoD players to obtain 100% achievement completion due to a long-standing bug with this achievement. Fixing achievement-related issues is certainly less important than other critical bugs, but it's a shame that supporters of the Enhanced Editions (and the SoD expansion) can't obtain this reward for their dedication in playing the game.

"You Chose ... Poorly" is unobtainable under most normal gameplay conditions. There are scattered (but rare) reports of individuals successfully unlocking it, however, a consistent strategy for obtaining this is not available. I have attached an additional savegame right before the Thrix encounter with a party full of standard NPCs. Failing Thrix' riddle with any NPC as the stakes does not award the achievement.

Hopefully this is not an extremely difficult fix. Please consider prioritizing it for your next update and respond here if there is any help in testing that I can provide.
