View Full Version : Assassin's Creed II Lost Trophies in PSN Error

03-02-2010, 06:33 AM

As a result of the recent PSN error, I have a situation where I am nearly at the end of the game, have previously earned some trophies (including 100 feathers) but did not sync before the error hit. Now those trophies have disappeared from my system trophy list yet I have already earned them in game. Is there any way to force the game to perform a trophy re-check? Could this be an option in a patch to be released as I'm damned if I'm going to bother re-collecting all those feathers.

Thanks, D

unfortunately if you didn't sync them with the PSN server they are gone for good.

besides this isn't a problem Ubi has any say on as the problem was directly with the PS3 hardware so you would need to take it up with Sony.

I recognise the issue was caused by a fault that Sony are to blame for. However, the kind of re-check I'm asking about could only be done through the ACII code. i.e. when you get a trophy, something in the game triggers into the System OS to give you the trophy. If these "triggers" are one time events that are not stored within the save game itself then I agree that most would be lost (although I would argue that many of them such as feathers and level completes ARE stored in the "DNA" section so are in the save data database.

actualy the trophies code is built into the PS3 in such a way that trophies cant be activated from a save game Sony did it this way to stop the people who were save swapping on the 360's to get a perfect game score.

This person seems to have found different:

NOTE: This is only if your trophies don't pop up and register when you load your game/save data. My trophies didn't pop up no matter how many times I loaded the game/Sync'ed my trophies.

Let me keep this short because I know all of you want your trophies. This may or may not work for you, it depends on how your games saves information and where the Trophy is looking to activate itself.

Last night, I was disconnected like everyone else. I thought it was nothing and continued to finish my HARD trials for Street Fighter IV. Well, I finished them but no trophies. I then tried to sync (no luck, I'm not connected) and many other methods only to find out that PSN is down for my 60GB and many others. One of those methods was to turn my PS3 off and load up my Street Fighter IV game, which in turn caused my trophies to disappear for that game. My only assumption is the trophies were create and achieved way after the 12/31/9999 date my PS3 was changed too.

I waited patiently, and tonight everything was back on. Well, this is what I did to get my trophies to show up. I tried all of Sony lame (Sync with server, Deactivate/Reactive PS3/Sync/Sync/Sync/Sync/get my point?), none of it worked.

This is WHAT I DID:

Step 1:
Turn on PS3 and update my date through the internet

Step 2:
My trophies still don't show for SFIV since they disappeared even after several syncs! So, I put my game in which then added SFIV trophy pack to my Trophy Collection but at 0%

Step 3:
Re-Sync, BOOM my 91% which is what I was at before the disconnect is back on my list. Still no 100% though since I acheived it after the disconnect.

Step 4:
I called Sony at this point and went through so much crap and was put on hold. At this point something POPPED in my head. I'm just going to go and complete a Arcade match to see if my save data being updated will re-register them. It registered 2 of the 4 trophies I needed for my PLAT which were the All Icons/All Titles.

Step 5:
I then realized, that I needed to somehow make a change to the save file where the trophy was looking for to register. The last two trophies were "Complete HARD Trials/Complete Challenge Mode", so I went back into my HARD trials and completed a hard trial.

Step 6:
BLING, BLING, BLING(Platinum), they re-registered. Since the Arcade Mode does NOT affect the Challenge Mode, yet it does affect your TITLE/ICON collection, I had to complete a challenge in the HARD trials for the trophies to activate.
