Default Encyclopedia of the Common Man glitch?

What seemed to be the easiest trophy to get, turns out to be giving me the biggest headache.

I only need one more recording for the trophy (Woodworker). On my log menu it says that I've done 2/3 but, underneath that point there is another point saying that the Woodworker entry is completed.

I still try to record him anyway but, it keeps telling me that the entry for this inhabitant is already completed. I've tried to record him for an entire day (literally waiting all night outside of his door until the sun comes up and start recording from the second he opens his door. OMG boring, btw) but, nothing happens.

Has anyone else come across this and if so, have you found a remedy?

EDIT:

Since I found the answer weeks ago and people still seem to be complaining about it (because they don't know how to read further down the posts), I've decided to quote myself so as to help those who only read the first post before adding their problems.

After a gagillion bazillion hours of trial and error, I feel like I've got the answer (if you want the trophy).

1. If it has the completed point, it's completed. Even if it has 2/3, who cares. It's done.

2. If it doesn't have the completed point, that's the one you need to focus on.

That's great, right? Some of you will say "Duh. We knew that." but, wait.

- Well, like myself, I've heard people say that their folks aren't doing anything. Have you checked your stock piles? If they're full, they won't do anything. Sell everything they got and they will get their asses in gear. Lumberers? Sell all the wood. Farmers? Sell all the farm food.

- It may take a while but, film everything the group does for at least a couple of days straight. Most days they only do 3 or 4 of the total 9 or 10 things that they do.

- If it's the Lumberers, don't film the wives. Just the two guys.

- Another thing to do is make really good use of the eagle vision. Targets in blue are invalid and targets in yellow are doing something scannable. Keep an eye on the blue ones, though. They may be about to transition into something scannable and turn yellow. If the next thing they're about to do has already been scanned before, they'll instantly turn back to blue. Look for the activity where they stay yellow more than a second or two.

- If you are using eagle vision, when they go from blue to yellow and right back to blue, it should turn your eagle vision off too. It's a good way to tell if you've already scanned that activity or, the entry for that worker is already completed and in the log.

- One thing to keep in mind is; distance makes a difference. If you stand right next to someone (like, almost touching) and they're yellow, it will stop the eagle vision from turning off and giving you the heads up that the activity has already scanned and/or they're already in the log so, keep a decent distance (like 10-20 feet).

I really hope this helps you. I know just how frustrating it can be.

I too "completed" the encyclopedia at 2/3. But I kept scanning him and just got the 3/3 for the Woodworker. The trophy, however, has not popped up.

I've been fortunate enough that no trophy has glitched on me in my many years of vidya... except for now it seems.

I'm going to try to go into the manor to check the actual Encyclopedia, since it is not something I've done yet. Hopefully that might trigger it.

EDIT: So apparently the "log" in the manor is just another way to access the animus database.

Anyone know of any other requirement for this trophy? Otherwise I'd say it's glitched.


UPDATE: I got the trophy to pop. The game glitched. What happened with me is when I checked the logbook, all activities (3/3) seemed to be recorded with "[X] entry completed. Log updated in the Manor." Except for the Lumberers strangely. The Lumberers had 3/3 but no indicator for the log update and sure enough when I checked the Encyclopedia there was no entry for Lumberers. What I did was scan the Lumberers despite already having 3/3, it recorded it, gave me a notification that the log was updated and shortly after my trophy popped.

To anyone who's trophy doesn't pop I'd suggest checking your log and making sure it says ALL entries are completed. If an inhabitant has 3/3 but it doesn't say the entry is completed I'd go find that inhabitant and scan them again until it updates. If it updates. Good luck.

Thanks for the information. I'll be sure to look into that.

As for your log/animus comment, the actual "log book" is located at the top of the stairs, by the two chairs, outside of your bedroom.

I've been a little concerned as well about this. It says I have it complete but it only shows 2/3 .. I just can't get Norris to do anything..

Upon further review of my situation, it turns out that there are two things wrong with my encyclopedia entries.

1. My LUMBERERS say I've recorded 3/3 activities but, there is NO bullet point stating that they've been added to the log.

2. As stated above, my WOODWORKER has 2/3 activities recorded but, there IS a bullet point stating he's been entered in the log.

WTF UBISOFT?!?

I'm really starting to get upset over this issue because it doesn't make sense.

Unhappy Farmers?

Damn... it seems like that glitch happen to everyone. Ok so here is my problem, I got 3/3 for every entry with the memo under that tell about the log entry except for the farmers. Those two bastard... Igot the 3/3 for them but not the log memo. Following what Ive read on some forum I continued scaning their activities and now Ive scanned 9 and still no trophy! Here are the activities I scanned for them:

1. Bake bread
2. Feed the chicken
3. Attend the bees
4. Plow the field
5. Tend the field
6. Water the field
7. Cut some wheat
8. Milk the cows
9. Pull some rope at the windmill

Ill continue trying to scan some more stuff they do but Im starting to think they do nothing else. So please, pretty please, if youve notice anything else they do that can be scan let me know so I can finally get this game plat.

I have the same problem with farmers and I've scanned those nine activities too. No trophy and no entry in the animus data base neither the log memo.

Most of the time I'm not sure who to analyze, get Invalid Target most of the time. But even with Huntress she wasn't really doing anything, 1st time she just got down the ladder and walking away, it work, next time walking home just walking back to cabin and analyzed, about when she entered the cabin area! Was getting Invalid Target few times before that.

So who is possible to analyze!

Just got Miner added how soon can i add more? where are the Homestead Mission found!
Miner< was in Boston! after a few others!
Next<?NY, Frontier or Homestead? don't want to take to many trips and nothings is there! Or I'll get sidetracked!

if you hit for eagle vision, people doing scannable activities will show up as gold, otherwise they'll be blue if they aren't doing anything worthwhile.

however activities already scanned will still show up as gold. so you need to maintain a checklist yourself to remember which activity you've observed so far.
