Second Chance Achievement Bug

I spoke to Brage and chose the correct choice and escorted him to the temple. After the dialogue finished the achievement didn't pop. I tried reloading a save, restarting the game and even going from an older save but no luck. I got the Judge, Jury & Executioner achievement fine but can't get Second Chance to pop. I have attached the save I made just before speaking to Brage.

    So, checking the ACHIEVEM.bcs script the game uses to track whether you should get the achievements...

    For "Judge, Jury, and Executioner", the conditions are:
    - Brage is dead.
    - The global variable "BrageRiddle" is not set to 2.
    Achieve these, and the game will set a variable. Whether that variable translates into an achievement depends on the game version; I play with the GoG version myself, and that doesn't do achievements.

    For "Second Chance, the condition is:
    - The global variable "BrageRiddle" is set to 2.
    And that's it.

    OK, what sets "BrageRiddle"?
    In Brage's initial dialogue, answering the riddle correctly sets the variable to 1. Answering it wrong sets the variable to 3.
    If you answer the riddle correctly and take him to the temple, Brage's dialogue with Nalin then sets "BrageRiddle" to 2. Which should then cause the achievement to pop.

    So ... did something go wrong at the temple, when Brage spoke to Nalin? Or was that dialogue altered in some way, possibly inadvertently breaking the achievement script?

    (I checked your save in Near Infinity. It was not informative, as you hadn't spoken to Brage yet in it.)

    Hi, thanks for the response. Nothing seems different with the dialogue, I checked a guide video and the text matches so I am not sure why it is not updating the variable. I have attached a save file which is directly after I hand in Brage to the Temple.

    ACH_SECOND_CHANCE is set properly. Everything says that loading your save should grant the achievement. (Unless you already have it, maybe?)

    The alternative is a server-side bug with the achievement, which we really can't troubleshoot here.

    Apologies for the confusion, I just checked my achievements again and I unlocked it in 2017 when I first played the game. I must have missed it as I checked my achievements after it didn't pop the first time. Thanks for the help though!
