Stuck on an achievement?
« on: February 10, 2013, 05:13:45 »
I've been trying to get the Delta achievement for a while now, but even after watching the solution on a video I can't make the required jumps. Is there some sort of trick to it?

That's actually the only one I hit by accident :P
However, I can't suggest anything outside of an instructable video... Sorry :/

If you're playing the PC version and you're watching the video I saw then you can't do it that way. Apparently when you change forms in the PS3 version you get a little extra upward boost, but not in the PC version. I had to start out a screen or two to the right and do a bunch of climbing and bouncing.


When something smells, it's usually my monitor.

Gorfinhofin is right that the pc version does not have an extra boost...

It works by converting your horizontal speed into vertical one when you bounce on the slope... :-)   . you will need it in 1 or 2 other achievements...

Are you completely sure the PC version doesn't have the boost? It seems very hard to actually do consistently in the PS3 version and I could see you just not creating the correct conditions to make it happen, but I could also see it being a physics glitch created from porting soooo...

If I remember correctly, I got that Achievement another way.

I can't tell if it's easier this way.
