Microtransaction Simulator Achievement Guide

I like to play random free games on Steam. A while ago I played through Loading Screen Simulator, so now it is only right that I play Microtransaction Simulator next. As these games are free, it usually means an easy 100% achievement playthrough in a few hours. I like that. Here is my Microtransaction Simulator achievement guide.

Code Change Related Achievements (3/3)

This is the sequence for the 40k impossible achievement

Up to this point, all the achievements can be gathered by using autoclickers and normal means. To get the last 5 achievements, you will need to access the game’s catch.gd file. This file can be located by following SteamLibrary (Wherever you put it) > SteamApps > Common > Microtransaction_Simulator. You will see catch.gd sitting here. To access the files, use Notepad++. You can find the steps for each achievement below.

Brick your game (intentionally) – Access the catch.gd file. Delete everything inside and set the file to Read – Only. Start up the game (be sure to check off Read – Only after getting the achievement).

Impossible – ‘Open’ a pack that has a total value of 40,000. To do this, change the values of the last pack opened in the catch.gd file (see pic above). totalCardOpenValue must match the total of the four totalValue entries below.



Mighty Number 9 – ‘Open’ a pack that has four of the same repeating numbers. See pic.
