    Maybe L.A. Noire could get the same tracking too?

     

    Yeah, R* Social Club tracks trophies and additional stats from L.A. Noire, both original and remastered. However I didn’t find a way to directly access that information by username of the specified member, URLs like https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/member/_username_/games/lan/achievements?platFormId=2 (PS3) or https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/member/_username_/games/lan/achievements?platFormId=11 (PS4) just create a comparison page between your own and other person’s trophies.

    Maybe I'm a bit dumb here, but why would anyone be going to Gamestop to buy a code to use on the store instead of just buying the game on the PSN store (for the 99% of the times it will be available there)? I don't see how this will really negatively affect anyone, other than Gamestop.

     

    It’s not only Gamestop though, Amazon also sells lots of digital codes for PlayStation games. For people from other countries that use US PSN accounts but don’t have american credit card or Paypal these codes is one of the main options for acquiring digital games, along with the purchase of PSN currency codes and then using wallet funds to buy games from PS Store.

  3. If someone can read almost everything except “Of course, there is difference between conventional boosting and share play, I’m not saying there isn’t”, that person purposely turning blind eye too, I guess.

    Look in the dictionary if you want a definition. 

    I’ve looked right away and it’s not what you're talking about so I thought you could elaborate. It’s a pity I was wrong and you couldn’t.

    What does "as supposed" mean?

    Obviously, it means how game developers intended those trophies to be earned, and not what imaginary one-armed person from far-fetched argument could have [or have not] claimed :)

    Even if you just boost trophies, you still put time and effort into a game/trophy.

    In many cases it’s just time. Virtually there is next to none effort in trading wins, kills, places, and such with your boosting buddies, for example. Especially, compared to the effort had been put by people who got that trophy themselves indeed.

     

    Of course, there is difference between conventional boosting and share play, I’m not saying there isn’t. Just trying to point out that neither is cheating and shouldn’t be labelled as such by self-appointed purists. Since, like you said, there is always possibility someone could come along and proclaim even more absurd restrictions for getting trophies yourself without cheating.

    It doesn’t contradict my point at all

    It does. Trophies unlocked during boosting session aren’t gotten by yourself as supposed but with a deliberate help from someone else.

    If your passing the controller to someone so they can do a trophy for you then your cheating.

    Define “cheating”, please.

    If you cant get the trophy yourself, then you don’t deserve to have it. Simple as that.

     

    Is it that simple though? Using someone’s help in regular boosting sessions to get some normally hard to achieve trophies contradicts your point.

     

    My opinion about Share Play is live and let be. As long as it doesn’t negatively affect others people gaming experience it should be fine.

    I've been in a couple of crews already (joined, left etc) and have done quite a few jobs. However I noticed that this trophy never popped. Is there a certain way you have to join a "job"? I mostly queue on random jobs maybe that doesn't count. Does the job needs to be created by a crew?

     

    Trophy description is missing the detail job has to be completed together with someone else from your crew.

    I was wondering, though: since the whole trophy process goes through Sony, would it be possible for them to nip glitched trophies in the bud?

     

    Yes, it is possible.

    Yes, they did it at least once: Max Payne originally had the 12th trophy “Did Someone Call the Exterminator?”, which was removed from the list before game release.

    The links are broken now.

    Does anyone have the icons downloaded and can post them again? I'm so curious to see them

    It could accidentally get flagged, but could also remain if you're being too clever, like level 40 A and B spec at the same time in GT5.

    Popping A and B specs within a few seconds in GT5 resembles undoubtedly save file usage. But it is still very possible (pre-planned or unintentional) by playing on two consoles.

     

    And completing two or more difficulty modes simultaneously on multiple consoles isn’t even so obvious case, as there might be minutes or hours between trophies (but still impossible gaps for one person, even the WR speedrunner). If that’s allowed, do you plan on revisiting disputes of all people claiming their children/cousins/friends were playing the same game on another console thus resulting in very close timestamps, and lifting those flags?

    Pretty sure I already answered this. Just don't try to out-clever yourself. Don't make it look like you used a downloaded save or edited timestamps.

     

    Where? Please, would you be so kind to provide a link? Thanks.

    ‘Cos I was under impression that you didn’t post in this topic after I asked you the question:

    So popping trophies too fast with your own save files is a no-no, because “we don’t want impossible timestamps on the leaderboard”, but popping trophies too fast with multiple consoles is okay, right?

    So it means that effort for you is shortened, which is actually something which I wanted to achieve - it is already huge advantage for me already then.

    Right, your personal effort will be halved, while the overall remains the same.

    So in this case you say that ok would be only if (we are still with PASBR since it is an easy example):

    Player A is playing Arcade Mode with char 1, Player B is playing Arcade Mode with char 2 at the same time. Both are reaching last boss. Player A kills the boss, gets the trophy for completion the Arcade Mode witch char 1. In the meanwhile, Player B is waiting within the boss fight for 25-30 min, then kills him with char 2 getting the trophy related to char 2. Perfect, normal timeframe between timestamps after sync.

    Not necessarily like that. There are other possible ways to share the effort while evading timestamps indistinguishable from trophy cheating. E.g., person 1 plays his part of challenges in the morning, and person 2 plays his part in the afternoon.

    And only such case you find unflaggable use of same game at 1+ consoles, that's how I get it, right?

    That’s not up to me to decide what is flaggable here and what is not. I’ve just read the rules and in their current version multiple consoles are okay until timestamps aren’t looking impossible. that is why I want @MMDE to answer my question: is popping trophies too fast with multiple consoles okay and not flaggable?

    And your own save file is indistinguishable from another.

    And achieving trophies simultaneously on multiple consoles is also indistinguishable from the save files usage. That’s the point.

    Yes, because you shorten the effort in one case.

    And actually, it is incorrect. You shorten time to platinum/complete game, in both cases. The effort is the same, it is just divided between team members with multiple consoles.

    Which raises another question: why is it flaggable offence to shorten leaderboard completion time by deleting trophies and should be not flaggable to shorten leaderboard completion time by playing same game simultaneously on multiple consoles?

     

    3 minutes ago, BigBossImBeamer said:

    But obviously playing the same game at the same time is allowed.

    Yes, it obviously is. Until timestamps aren’t impossible. Otherwise they are flaggable by current rules.

    Did you even read this thread? 1f605.png So the rules are not meant.

     

    I’ve read the rules. Unless they will be changed, right now they definitely allow playing multiple consoles until timestamps within a game list aren’t looking impossible.

    That's in the case of deleting trophies earned AKA use save files you've made progress on where you never sync the initial earning of the trophies to pop trophies too fast or out of order.

    So popping trophies too fast with your own save files is a no-no, because “we don’t want impossible timestamps on the leaderboard”, but popping trophies too fast with multiple consoles is okay, right?

     

    9 minutes ago, BigBossImBeamer said:

    That is not completely clear

    It looks pretty clear to me: playing different games simultaneously on different consoles is okay. But when you play the same game on multiple consoles and get impossibly close timestamps it is flaggable.

    If you've got pictures/videos of your set up which prove that you were playing the same game on 2 different consoles (videos of trophies popping etc.), then surely a flag could not stand?

     

    No pictures or videos of people using their own save files will lift the flag though.

    Because the policy here is “we don’t want impossible timestamps on the leaderboard”, as @MMDE stated multiple times.

  17. I suggest we don’t add anything to the rules, as there is already clause “Any impossible timestamps within a game list can get flagged” under the not flaggable paragraph Playing multiple consoles at once.

    You can't.

    Exactly.

    That’s the reason why using your own save files is flaggable too, ‘cos timestamps aren’t distinguishable from downloaded and resigned save files.
