I recently got wired internet back at home so I was able to connect to XBL. Offline I played a few games I had rented and overall got quite a lot of gamerscore points from them, around 2000,3000. One night I was at my friends so i recovered my gamertag to his xbox. Then a week later or so after getting internet I connected to XBL and got a message saying I had to recover my gamertag again (eventhough it was already in the HDD) because it had been recovered on another console. Something along those lines anyway. So I recovered it and lost the achievements I had gotten while I played offfline! AGH!
So i was wondering, since I still have the save files of those games, if I rented them again and loaded the savefile would I automatically get those achievements back? I've seen this happen with Banjo Kazooie on youtube. Games I had were like Borderlands which have statistics recorded, so maybe if I load it up I would instantly get all the achievements? There really should have been a warning about this BEFORE recovering the gamertag.
