    Assassin's Creed: Revelations Achievements not unlocking

    When I was playing revelations, I already had all the single player achievements in the main game unlocked. But in the lost archive, I played through the whole thing and none of the achievements were unlocked. I thought deleting the lost archive file would resolve this issue, but in the process it deleted my main game save as well. So I decided to play through the main game again. By halfway through I noticed most of my achievements were reset. I don't know what caused this in the first place. So I tried starting the game over again thinking the achievements would reset again because I was doing some actions that earn achievements but uplay wasn't unlocking them. This didn't fix the issue. I even went as far as to uninstall uplay and ac revelations and it still didn't fix the problem. I opened a support ticket but the support staff didn't have an answer. If anyone knows how to resolve this issue, let me know.

    I too have a problem with unlocking achievements in Revelations. Today I played it aiming for 100% sync and got two achievements (or at least I got the notifications in-game) for Armchair General and A Friend Indeed. But none was unlocked when I checked them in Uplay

    Here are some examples:
    Silent but deadly, kill three guards with throwing knives simultaneously.
    I did this multiple times and the achievement wasn't unlocking.
    Same with memory sequence achievements and Desmond's journey achievements.
    However, I did notice that even though I delete the save game file and start from scratch, all the Desmond's journey levels were already unlocked.
    The lost archive:
    Part of the creed achievement, take the leap of faith.
    Did this multiple times and the achievement didn't unlock.
    Is anyone else having similar problems with this game?

    Same to me. The problem is a file named "40.spool" located in "C:\Users\%USER%\AppData\Local\Ubisoft Game Launcher\spool\%manynumbers%" which is actually your AC Revelations Achievements. If you re-installed Uplay or Windows since you played Revelations and did all the achievements, well, you certainly don't have that file there. Why? Because Uplay doesn't upload to cloud that file with your Revelations Achievements like the other games.

    I deleted my savegames and completed the game again 100% with all the Achievements. They have been all unlocked, although some of them shows the unlocking date, some don't. And then I unninstalled Uplay and of course, it deleted the "Ubisoft Game Launcher" folder from AppData/Local. And when I installed Uplay again, many Achievements were reseted just like the last time. Fortunately, I had some Previous Versions and I restored the "40.spool" file and the Achievements were back.

    In conclusion, backup your "40.spool" file before re-installing Uplay or Windows.

    I went into the folder were the 40. spool file is located and it was empty. How would I get the 40. spool file back if it wasn't backed up?

    You can't. You need to delete your savegames in the game then delete the remaining files in your savegame directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher\savegames\%LONGNUMBER%\40) by changing their extension to .deleted (1.save.deleted, 1.save.metedata.deleted, 2.save.deleted, 2.save.metadata.deleted) although you should have 2 of them already .deleted when you deleted them from the game. Also delete the spool file which you have now.
    After that, start Uplay, start AC Revelations and play the game again and make all the achievements.

    Ubisoft is not capable of making the Achievements for Revelations uploading on the Cloud.

    Hi.
    I have the same problem. Could anyone help us and upload this file ("40.spool"). We don't want to play another 20 or more hours for only making achievements, because uplay can't synchronize them. I have some achievements in uplay but most of them disappear and I don't have this file after reinstalling windows. Could you explain how part of them are saved without this file and the rest has gone?

    Could you upload this file "40.spool"? I will try if it works when I copy that into ubi folder. I would be appreciated if you could.
