If You Earned the Hard Difficulty Trophy...

21 posts in this topic

Trying to figure out if it's really glitched or just has stupid specific requirements.  If you DIDN'T get it, but completed the whole game on Hard, answer this as well (but indicate that it glitched for you).

 

Did you:

 

1) Select Hard from options before starting a new game?

2) Play the tutorial after selecting the difficulty?

3) Win QTE stuff in chapters that aren't necessary (i.e. Lucas/Tiffany sex, Carla/Tyler boxing, Tyler basketball game)

4) Play the game in more than one sitting? (i.e. quitting the game, turning off the PS4)

5) Did you jump around in chapters or play them in the order they'd appear in chapter select (i.e. did you just pick the default option every time you had a choice)?

6) Which game ending did you get?

7) Did you have subtitles on?

8) Was your console online or offline while you were playing?

9) Was your controller plugged in, or did you have to switch wireless controllers at some point (i.e. did you get taken to the log-in screen so you could switch controllers)?

10) Did you ever have to reload a save/continue from last save point because you hit a game over?

11) Did you get all the tarot cards during your Hard playthrough, and did the trophy unlock for it?

12) What language is the game and console set to?
13) If you were online, were you ever signed out of PSN, even for a moment?
14) Are you playing a censored copy? (The NA version, for example, removed the Tiffany/Lucas sex scene, and censored Carla's shower scene)
15) What model PS4 are you using? Does it have the original hard drive, or did you replace it with a different one?
16) Did you have any other devices or accessories plugged in?
17) Did you ever bring up the XMB while you were playing (to sync trophies, leave the game without closing the application, etc)
18) Did you use the PS4 Rest mode at any point?
19) Did you use Remote Play at any point?

20) Did the game ever crash?

 

Hopefully we can figure this out.  Thanks in advance!

I could be wrong, because it's been a while since I've played this game, but is it possible that you don't get to see (play) certain chapters if you make certain decisions / fail certain sections? If so, whatever chapter you didn't play could be the culprit? (For instance, to take an example off Heavy Rain:

if Madison died to The Doctor or Norman died to Mad Jack, all their further chapters are scrapped. )

Could it be something like that that's causing you to not actually have played every chapter?

Mmh I don't think so, giving that Fahrenheit/Indigo Prophecy is more "linear" than Heavy Rain since it has game overs, meaning that if you die you need to restart from the last checkpoint.

You can get some additional scenes and play as other characters if you meet some requirements, like for example if you fail to breath as Carla in the basement while searching for the Kirsten file then you'll play as Tyler on the next scene and you would need to search the Kirsten file while playing as him. And some additional scenes might happen if you fail to defeat one of the enemies at the end of the game or something like that and you'll get to play as Carla for a short period of time, but since some people managed to get the Hard difficulty trophy with the good ending and thus not seeing that scene then I don't think it affects it.

Hopefully we can figure this out.  Thanks in advance!

 

I just got the trophy today on my second playthrough while playing with the same profile and setting the difficult to Hard before starting a new game :)

 

1) Select Hard from options before starting a new game? Yes

2) Play the tutorial after selecting the difficulty? I only did that on my first playthrough, but I just started the main game on my second playthrough

3) Win QTE stuff in chapters that aren't necessary (i.e. Lucas/Tiffany sex, Carla/Tyler boxing, Tyler basketball game) Mmh I actually purposely lose the majority of unnecessary QTEs just to see alternative dialogue and scenes, I think I only won the Carla/Tyler boxing minigame two times to get its trophy.

4) Play the game in more than one sitting? (i.e. quitting the game, turning off the PS4) I quitted and turned off the PS4 many times.

5) Did you jump around in chapters or play them in the order they'd appear in chapter select (i.e. did you just pick the default option every time you had a choice)? I played the game from the beginning until the end without using chapter select.

6) Which game ending did you get? On my second playthrough, I got the cyborg ending.

7) Did you have subtitles on? Yes, on Spanish with Spanish voices.

8) Was your console online or offline while you were playing? Always online.

9) Was your controller plugged in, or did you have to switch wireless controllers at some point (i.e. did you get taken to the log-in screen so you could switch controllers)? I played it with the controller plugged in to charge it and then I continued to play normally without it, I only have 1 controller.

10) Did you ever have to reload a save/continue from last save point because you hit a game over? Yes, many times!

11) Did you get all the tarot cards during your Hard playthrough, and did the trophy unlock for it? No that trophy actually glitched on me, I tried to collect all the possible tarots cards on my first playthrough but I didn't got it -didn't used any guide-, and then on my second playthrough I just collected like 5 of the same ones I collected on my first playthrough and the trophy just popped out of nowhere. After that I didn't tried to collect all the other ones, just the ones that were close to my character because why not xD

12) What language is the game and console set to? Spanish

13) If you were online, were you ever signed out of PSN, even for a moment? Mmh no, I signed out from PSN after I finished playing the game.

14) Are you playing a censored copy? (The NA version, for example, removed the Tiffany/Lucas sex scene, and censored Carla's shower scene) I'm playing the uncensored one, from the EU Store.

15) What model PS4 are you using? Does it have the original hard drive, or did you replace it with a different one? All of it is original, is the first PS4 model with 500 GB of hard drive.

16) Did you have any other devices or accessories plugged in? No I just plugged the controller to charge it some times.

17) Did you ever bring up the XMB while you were playing (to sync trophies, leave the game without closing the application, etc) Yes, many times to lower the volume a bit and synch my trophies.

18) Did you use the PS4 Rest mode at any point? Yes but not while playing the game.

19) Did you use Remote Play at any point? Yes but not while playing the game.

20) Did the game ever crash? I don't think so, no.

it's kinda off-topic, but i guess it's a solution so:

 

Ok, the first 2 runs was without achievement, but on the third one i got it, so what i did before attempt 3rd run
i removed save data, after that created new game, changed difficulty and just finished the game.
So the difference between runs was only in one thing, on 3rd run i didn't go to options during run, cuz first 2 runs i had to enter options just to check, if difficulty still on hard or not and to turn on subs (guess this action blocking the trophy), so i think that problem is in options, after you set HARD before starting game, never touch Options till the end. I hope that this is the solution

While entering options, you can notice that game doing something with save

i will do another hard run soon, setting the options before starting a new game and never touch them again. if this works out for me, i'll definitely let you know here.

16) Did you have any other devices or accessories plugged in?
 
The Disney Infinity base and my controller charge cord were plugged in
 
17) Did you ever bring up the XMB while you were playing (to sync trophies, leave the game without closing the application, etc)
 
Yeah.
 
18) Did you use the PS4 Rest mode at any point?
 
Nope
 
19) Did you use Remote Play at any point?
 
Nope
 
20) Did the game ever crash?
 
Yeah it crashed hard during the Happy Anniversary chapter. Martin started talking to me while I was using the fax machine and the camera completely broke and crashed the game.
 
The only things I changed in the Options before starting were the difficulty and subtitles but maybe the subtitles screwed something up too.
 
-----
 
Second playthrough got the platinum! Seems consistent for this workaround since I did exactly what a guy in the guide topic did.
 
 
1) Select Hard from options before starting a new game?
 
Yes, selected Hard before starting and every other option was not changed from default including no subtitles. USED PROFILE I BEAT THE GAME WITH ON HARD ALREADY. Started a new game from that profile.
 
2) Play the tutorial after selecting the difficulty?
 
No
 
3) Win QTE stuff in chapters that aren't necessary (i.e. Lucas/Tiffany sex, Carla/Tyler boxing, Tyler basketball game)
 
Nah I lost half of them just to speed through faster using this guy's speedrun video.
 
4) Play the game in more than one sitting? (i.e. quitting the game, turning off the PS4)
 
One sitting, did not quit the game at all. Pausing was fine.
 
5) Did you jump around in chapters or play them in the order they'd appear in chapter select (i.e. did you just pick the default option every time you had a choice)?
 
Most of them in order but I did a couple out of order.
 
6) Which game ending did you get?
 
I didn't finish it this time. The Hard trophy popped after finishing Chapter 34 Child's Play.
 
7) Did you have subtitles on?
 
No
 
8) Was your console online or offline while you were playing?
 
Online, never disconnected.
 
9) Was your controller plugged in, or did you have to switch wireless controllers at some point (i.e. did you get taken to the log-in screen so you could switch controllers)?
 
I plugged it in when needed. never changed controllers.
 
10) Did you ever have to reload a save/continue from last save point because you hit a game over?
 
Yes, this time I NEVER went back to the main menu. When I wanted to retry a fight to keep more lives, I just let them run out and do continue from last save.
 
11) Did you get all the tarot cards during your Hard playthrough, and did the trophy unlock for it?
 
Yes, I collected them all up to where I got the Hard trophy after Chapter 34 Child's Play.
 
12) What language is the game and console set to?
 
English + NO SUBTITLES
 
13) If you were online, were you ever signed out of PSN, even for a moment?
 
No
 
14) Are you playing a censored copy? (The NA version, for example, removed the Tiffany/Lucas sex scene, and censored Carla's shower scene)
 
EU version
 
15) What model PS4 are you using? Does it have the original hard drive, or did you replace it with a different one?
 
Launch PS4 with a 2TB harddrive I put in.
 
16) Did you have any other devices or accessories plugged in?
 
The Disney Infinity base and my controller charge cord were still plugged in.
 
17) Did you ever bring up the XMB while you were playing (to sync trophies, leave the game without closing the application, etc)
 
Maybe once but I don't think so, was being super cautious.
 
18) Did you use the PS4 Rest mode at any point?
 
Nope
 
19) Did you use Remote Play at any point?
 
Nope
 
20) Did the game ever crash?

Even though it thankfully didn't glitch on me it's nice to hear that they're patching it. I know quite a lot of people have been really annoyed because of this trophy.

I got it to work fine. Sometimes playing a defective build of a game locks you out. Ghostbusters the Video Game (Not the crappy one) is a fine example.

First playthrough was a blind one on normal difficulty.

Selected hard from the options before starting a new game and then continued with saving on my already logged in profile. (3rd option)

     Yes

2) Play the tutorial after selecting the difficulty?

     No

3) Win QTE stuff in chapters that aren't necessary (i.e. Lucas/Tiffany sex, Carla/Tyler boxing, Tyler basketball game)

     No, Yes, No

4) Play the game in more than one sitting? (i.e. quitting the game, turning off the PS4)

     Yes (probably 3 or 4 separate sessions) 

5) Did you jump around in chapters or play them in the order they'd appear in chapter select (i.e. did you just pick the default option every time you had a choice)?

     In order (Picked the default one each time)

6) Which game ending did you get?

     The Oracle ending

7) Did you have subtitles on?

     No, subtitles were turned off (turned them off before starting a new game) 

8) Was your console online or offline while you were playing?

     Online

9) Was your controller plugged in, or did you have to switch wireless controllers at some point (i.e. did you get taken to the log-in screen so you could switch controllers)?

     The controller I was using was always wireless but never ran out of batteries although my second one was always plugged in. During the breaks I would switch controllers before starting the game again.

10) Did you ever have to reload a save/continue from last save point because you hit a game over?

      Yes

11) Did you get all the tarot cards during your Hard playthrough, and did the trophy unlock for it?

       I started collecting them but after getting the 18th in agathas' house the trophy popped so I stopped.

12) What language is the game and console set to?

       English
13) If you were online, were you ever signed out of PSN, even for a moment?

       No
14) Are you playing a censored copy? (The NA version, for example, removed the Tiffany/Lucas sex scene, and censored Carla's shower scene)

       I'm playing the EU version which is uncensored. (game was downloaded from the EU ps store)
15) What model PS4 are you using? Does it have the original hard drive, or did you replace it with a different one?

       Original PS4 (first model) with original hard drive
16) Did you have any other devices or accessories plugged in?

        No, only the controller I wasn't using
17) Did you ever bring up the XMB while you were playing (to sync trophies, leave the game without closing the application, etc)

        Yes, to close the application and then do anything else such as syncing my trophies, turning off the PS4 or play another game. Never brought up the XMB menu without instantly closing the application.
18) Did you use the PS4 Rest mode at any point?

        No
19) Did you use Remote Play at any point?

        No

20) Did the game ever crash?

        Yes once and it was the first and only time until now.

 

 

Its worth mentioning that I NEVER accessed the options like other users say above after starting my new game. Only paused and continued a couple of times.

This was my first try on hard difficulty and my second playthrough overall. Luckily, the trophy popped up right after the oracle delivered Jade to the altar and the loading screen appeared.
