Achievements are finally here !  :oops:

Since ZM doesn't has such a good system like Team Fortress 2 does. It will be a bit more work to proof your achievements. Most achievements will require a demo or screenshot.
Atm achievements will give you a nice logo on the forums under your current avatar and other sections of the forum + give you points that will be usable in a shop in the near future to purchase in-game features.
And not to forget bragging rights !

For a full list go to medals in the top right of the forum. Or click Here

How does it work:

Most medals are achievable by making a screenshot. Do keep in mind that you will need a proper screenshot that shows all the needed information.
All the achievements are exactly as you read them. For example for the GET TO DAH CHOPPAH achievement you will only require a screenshot of you standing under the helicopter on zm_asylum.
Some are bit trickier but should be do-able with a screenshot. The Ist das hans ? achievement requires you to either make a demo or a screenshot of the moment when you have won the round, so make sure the Survivors have won the round part is on the screenshot.
   
Right now there's only one achievement that requires a demo and that is Yar Har. This is cause its unable to make an useful screenshot of it.

Rules:

At least 8 players must be online.
The zombie(s) must be able to attack you.
You can't ask people to do something in order to make getting the achievement easier unless it so specifies in the achievement itself.


Screenshot:

If you are using a screenshot to proof your achievement you will have too provide 2 screenshots. One of you beating the achievement and the other while showing the score list. ( preferably somewhere at the same time )

The zombie master must be active, this is why you will need to provide 2 screenshots so we can validate the ZM.

The zombie master must be something of a challenge. If for example all survivors won on redqueen the ZM has failed in doing his job. I mainly added this rule so that you won't be able to achievement whore when a tony swan becomes ZM or make a deal with one of your friends to be active but not spawn anything.

Demo:

Pretty much the same rules as above you will however not have to provide any screenshots, just make sure you're recording :)

So how do I do this:

It is rather simple but in-case you have no clue.

How to make a jpeg:


jpeg (makes a .tga screenshot and then auto converts it to jpeg)
jpeg_quality  (sets the quality of the jpeg, better = bigger file size, by default this does not need to be changed and can be ignored.)
screenshot (This makes a .tga screenshots which would require you to convert it to .jpeg as web browsers or must programs don't support it)

All screenshots can be found in zombie_master/screenshots.


How to make a demo:

This is extremely easy. Simply type record "filename" and stop when you are done recording.

Example: record achievementYarhar.
The ship has sank and I'm the last man standing. I now type stop in the console and you will see some stuff how long it has recorded etc if everything went as it should be.

note. If you like to use a space in the filename be sure to use "".

Example: record "achievement yar har"

Also please don't make it record longer then needed or will be time consuming to find the part where you unlocked the achievement. Just start the demo at the start of a round when you want to get the achievement and save it when you did the requirements to unlock it.

How to bind this:


First be sure you got your console open. You can open it with the ~ key which is left of your 1 key. If it doesn't open go to controls > advanced settings > enable dev console.
Then type bind "key" "command". Example bind f12 jpeg.

Note. Binding a demo to a key isn't exactly a smart thing to do as I believe it will overwrite the demo with the same file name. ( once again not sure as I've never tested this )
There are other ways to binding a demo with a script but I'm not very skilled in this.

Where to upload this:

You can use the build in attachment function on the forum. Or you can use anything else you prefer.

Lastly but not least. If you do not provide valid proof or we think you have been "cheating" we will not give out the achievement.
I will also be testing out any unsure stuff and update this post as more achievements or questions arrive. If you are unsure about anything feel free to ask me in-game or on the forums.

Please don't use rapidshare. The counting cats is hard to see and its extremely annoying. Please use http://www.sendspace.com instead.

Format to use:


Achievement: Found you I has.
Proof if needed:

Note. You are not forced to use the hl build in tools. Feel free to use xfire, wegame w/e you like to make screenshots or recordings with.

Achievement: Found you I has.
