Trine Kaput For Good?

I just wanted to know: What are the exact requirements for "Trine Kaput For Good?"? It says: "Complete each expansion level using only one character" - but what exactly can I do or can't do?

- With the release of Dwaren Caverns and the level counting towards the DLC (I guess) do we need to finish this level for the achievement to unlock?
- Is it true that I can change the character at the beginning of a level as long as I don't move?
- If I die can I return to the last checkpoint still being able to get the achievement?
- Do I have to do all the levels in one sitting? Or can I exit after 3 levels and do the rest the next day?
- Does the order of the levels matter or do I have to play them in order - one after another?

Hello Semmel!

I'm not at the office at the moment and can't recall all the details, but this much I do remember:

"Is it true that I can change the character at the beginning of a level as long as I don't move?"
There's roughly "meter" or two safe zone in the beginning of the levels where you can change characters, so the safest way indeed would be not to move at all before choosing the character you'd want to tackle the level with.

"If I die can I return to the last checkpoint still being able to get the achievement?"
Yes, as long as you return to the last checkpoint by going to the pause menu and not changing the character this should work.

"Do I have to do all the levels in one sitting? Or can I exit after 3 levels and do the rest the next day?"
You don't have to do them in one sitting. Once you complete a level with the settings it'll be saved in your save data.

"Does the order of the levels matter or do I have to play them in order - one after another?"
Order shouldn't matter as long as you get trough them all.

I'm not 100% sure on what is the situation with Dwarven Caverns but my guess would be that it does not count towards the achievement, i.e you only have to complete the original expansion levels.

Hopefully this helps :)

Hi there JussiE! Thanks for your fast reply and for the clarification.
I swear I did every level just like that using only one character but didn't get the achievement. Strange but ... oh well - I might just try it again. :)

I've solo'd each expansion level twice over and the achievement still hasn't unlocked.

The Heroes Return as Zoya x 2
Deadly Dustland as Zoya x 2
Belly of the Beast as Zoya x 2
Brackenridge Rise as Amadeus x 2
Cloudy Isles as Zoya x 1, as Amadeus x 1
Goblin Machinations as Zoya x 2

I've played through the levels in order and in reverse order. I only switch characters at the very beginning and I select 'restart from last checkpoint' when my character dies. Thoughts?

Did you get the achievement?
I've just finished the levels and nothing happened :|

Edit: got it, had to finish the extra level :)

gt2, did you also finish the last level Dwarven Caverns? That's the secret level you'll unlock when you collect all the map pieces :)

I have a similiar question. I completed every level with Zoya except Brackenridge Rise and Dwarven Caverns, which I did with Amadeus but the achievement didn't unlock. Now I read that skipping cutscenes may be one cause of this problem.

That's why I'd like to know if there is a way to check which levels are definitely solo'ed before doing a second run, because even though it's a fun experience some puzzles were extremly difficult to handle with Zoya.

Unfortunately there isn't a way to check the progress with the achievement :(

Which character did you use to finish the extra level? I tried with Amadeus and Zoya but I couldn't do it. And I believe Zoya must be the best answer.
