A Revisited Thread/Discussion about the "Oblivion Walker" achievement

Yes, I think you know the bug, but for those who don't know, let me state it again.

"I got all the Daedric Artifacts (Skeleton Key is an exemption) and I haven't got the "Oblivion Walker" achievement. What should I do?"

So, in my case. I got almost all the daedric artifacts (15 of 'em) LEGITIMATELY (except that I used console commands for the Skull of Corruption because I'm a good girl [my character is a female] and I don't want to make the people suffer from their nightmares.) and I haven't got the Spellbreaker yet. Hmmm, I still don't have the achievement.

Does the console command affects quest achievements? If it does, what should I do to undo or redo it? What if I'll obtain the Spellbreaker, will the achievement trigger?

Thanks in advance and cheers! :)

P.S. - I'm KINDA new to TESV: Skyrim and I do need some good help for this one. Hehe.

    If you use the console to cheat certain items into your inventory (especially quest items), it will usually ignore the proper triggers for certain achievements and ignore the cheated item entirely. If you're hunting for achievements, it's best to not use the console to give yourself anything beyond gold or the occasional non-quest-related item(s).

    Not as serious as you'd think.

    So, it doesn't affect the achievements? Hmmm...

    Well, either it does or it doesn't. In terms of using the console in general, it has no effect on Steam making a record of your achievements if it's just you doing something like giving yourself a bunch of gold or giving yourself a simple item (such as an iron sword for an immediate example). However, for achievements that require you to find/acquire specific items like the one you mentioned in the OP, simply giving yourself the item through the console will skip a necessary trigger for the game to pick up on in order for the achievement to be noted by Steam, so you're basically giving yourself a null item and still have to go through with getting the actual 'non-cheat' item through its regular means instead.

    In other words, you can still use the console, but don't give yourself anything that might be necessary to obtain normally for achievements. You still have to follow the necessary parameters for the achievement to take effect, and trying to skip it by giving yourself the item(s) you need for said achievement will usually result in failure.
