Re: How does MS catch achievement modding, and how risky is it these days?
It's basted off of...
Order in which you unlocked the achievements
Achievement Time stamp
Title Time stamp
Time between each achievement
What bit-flags are set at the time of sync
How many achievement are being synced
Type of achievement
If the achievement is online or offline
Time between first/last time played and achievement unlocked time stamp
When Xbox-Live account was created and achievement unlocked/last time title played time stamp
If achievement is link to a rank or level you should be that level to unlock it, if not don't unlock it!
Lastly it's also based on who reports you. I have a account that I played on a few times that I unlocked over 100K of achievements offline and it's been over 2 years and I haven't gotten reset.
If you take the time to make sure everything is in legit order and has a time stamp you should be fine.
Also: Save sets that unlock all or pop multiple achievements are not safe. You are more likely to get rest because of achievement be unlocked to close together then if you set them correctly. (Some of you might disagree but this is what I have experienced.)
Hope this helps. Happy modding!
