hey,

I'm not getting the achievements that I unlock while playing in offline mode (it works fine when I am online). Same for games that I start while online, but finish off line. My understanding is that the steam client should still register offline milestones, and award them once you are back online with steam. This just isn't happening for me though- a little annoying. :(

Does anyone know anything about this? An issue for Mac users, or just me?

It's an issue for everyone. Steam does not record achievements in offline mode.

Here's the relevant information from Steam:
Achievements Are Not Being Recorded

Achievements are not recorded while playing in Commentary Mode, Offline Mode or when sv_cheats is set to 1. If you would like to ensure that your achievements are tracked correctly, please do not play your game in any of these modes.

thanks for the info. I had read misinformation obviously.

I found that if you save the game the turn before you are about to win, then replay while online, you can get the end-game achievements at least. Not sure how things like 'build 1000 temples' work, but Its not like I was gonna go for those anyway. :crazyeye:
