Do you wish me to post in this topic to help you find the games I have altered or would you rather someone hunted for them? :p

Yeah, I'm experiencing the same thing. Just another bug that has to be fixed.

Now I don't know whether I want to play the games if I don't get my medals, lol. If you do get medals before they fix the bug and they don't g=count, will your tally go up when they fix it?

If its anything like before the redesign, if you have the medal in your page, then you should get points for it the next time you earn another medal. That's how it was with zero point medals, so I'd imagine (and hope) that its the same way this time.

Bear in mind though, there are only a few "new" games on the Games With Medals page at the moment whose achievements actually show up when you obtain them.

Actually I was talking about medals from "Toys Vs Nightmares" and "the Jersey Shore Game" (or whatever it is the one you beat up the guy from J.S.). I started those games after the redesign and I still haven't gotten my medals (did them yesterday).

When I played your game, the medals Iearned showed up on the front page of my profile, but not in the medal list itself. I looked through all of them and couldnt find them on that list. When the medal point bug gets fixed, I hope that they count because that was a fun quiz. And yes it would be great if youcould tell us all the games you altered so we can get more points.

In the past, the medals of a certain game became visible after someone unlocked a medal for it. For broken games this was usually an author (I don't think this is entirely true, but it's close enough). In the list of medal games, there are now at least 50 new games visible all with broken medals that weren't visible before. I really hope this gets fixed, as I don't really feel like checking all those games out to see of some of them do have working medals. Seeing how they seem to be listening to feedback right now, this should be added to the list of stuff that I would like them to fix (along with the stuff that has already been mentioned).

I want to say that the system is still incredibly buggy.
First, I beat codename elzekiel, and got two medals for it: the ones for beating boss 3 and beating 500 enemies. Not the ones for 1000 enemies, completing the game, completing the game with three stars and the boss 4 medal.
Then I got the last medal in nervejangla. It worked.
Last I tried getting the League of Evil all briefcases medal. It popped up in-game, but not on my profile.

All three of them are pretty solid working, and haven't been known for any medal bugs. Is this sort of stuff still happening for anyone else. Because now I miss about 150 medal points because of this.

Has anyone else played Miner Dash? The medals don't unlock and I'm wondering if it's always been like that or if this is a "since the redesign" issue.

Just got the "Tubular" achievement from SCGMD4 and it wasn't awarded to my profile. Thank god it's not a grinder medal. However, I think I'ma chill by grinding for "The Daddy" achievement in Outpost: Haven until the dust settles down.

We all seem to be getting messed with on the medals in some form or another, huh? I just was playing Arzea, and I should've unlocked the Blur, Fragmented, and Jumper medals (still can't find that last damn heart for the Lifelong achievement!), and while they unlocked in the game, they didn't on the page. Looking at Fooliolo's medals, he's got 'em. Wonder why they didn't unlock for me.

Play the game a bit longer, walk around a bit. Go through some save points, go back and forth of the menu... I don't know what/where those medals unlocked for me, but I had a huge delay on them as well, but they all worked eventually.

@ FoldingDuckling: read my earlier post. It's one of those games.

The green box and wires medals aren't working for me (doesn't matter because I can't figure out how to open the box, lol). Also, the ones I get still don't add to my tally. I PMed Tom about the Medal tally issue, and he said they would add it to the bug list and get to it asap.

Hmm... I strongly suspect that the 50 pt secret medal is getting 17 perfects on pro mode. I'm ... not looking forward to that xD It's probably not out of my reach though, since for the most part I've done harder shyt on Guitar Hero and Rock Band series. Oh, and real life piano music >_>

Songs in order of difficulty:
1.) Secret song 3
2.) Tired Old Man
3.) Presumed Dead
4.) Switch vs. Evil-Dog Round 3

Notable songs:
I Just Wanna Burn - only song with over 1000 notes.
Swallow Your Soul - easiest song for the "Tubular" achievement. (orly?)
Tired Old Man - most chaotic song; it refuses to have consistent rhythm.

A few observations on the medal system since the redesign:

Medals seem to open automatically on the games page when you unlock them in the game. No more refreshing the page to see if they sent or not - at least with the ones connected to the API system .

Secret medals stay secret. you can only view them in your own profile when you unlock them, but they seem to be locked when you go to other user's pages. That sucks. It's going to make it harder to find out what they are.

I hope it's a design flaw, but clicking on medals send you to the user's medal page, not the game. This sucks, because now that they don't have the game's name on them anymore, I have to dig around for the game they came from, instead of clicking on them and going directly to the game..

Nope. I saw it on skiller12's profile just before the redisign. I don't know if it's easier or not, but it's something you need to do in both easy and pro mode.

If anyone wants to know what it is, just send me a PM. I don't have it, but do know what it is.

Wrong information, you only need to do it in Pro mode. I didnt play Easy mode after i didnt get Tubular or Socialite achievements, so i wiped my save file. 17 perfects on Pro mode is one of 25 points medals, just to make you suffer a little more :)

Aw c'mon! None of the medals are sending again, and the save function doesn't seem to wanna work for me! Ugh. It's a really great game too!

These bugs are really starting to annoy me. Unless they're on my side (because I see a few people have the medals for this game), then I'm annoyed with myself, because I've no idea what went wrong.
