I have recently acquired Lego Harry Potter 1-4 and was browsing the achievements when I noticed that a lot of them say Single Player Only (Xbox Achievements)
Searching the web for what this means seems to produce a multitude of answers, many contradicting one another, common responses being:
- The game (or steps towards an achievement) must be played entirely alone
- The main player (the one with the xbox live account) will be the only one to get the achievement, but two people can play
- The main player must be the one to do the steps toward an achievement, but two can play
- Both players get the achievement
The most common response is probably point 2, but then some confusion arises from what a "main player" is and a secondary.
My situation: I own an Xbox live account, and I would like the achievements. My gf has created an account on my xbox (an "offline" account I believe it is called) but has no interest in achievements (don't even know if it can even earn them?). Ideally, I would like to only play through the game once, earning the achievements (for my account) as we play together. What steps do I need to take to accomplish this? If we both log into our profiles, will I void any chance? Alternatively, if only I log in, and then my gf presses 'start' once in game, is this allowed?
I've tried to get an official response from Lego about the matter but as yet no response.
