# 1 Devs - C-Store Item Issue
06-15-2010, 02:58 PM
Can someone confirm if this is a glitch or a reality?

I bought the tribble and borg officer from the c-store but it wants me to buy it for each damn character I have.

I thought once something was unlocked in the c-store it was unlocked across the account.

If this is a new trend, that items may only be unlocked on a per character basis.. I'm going to be royally ****ed off.

I'm sure that's some kind of glitch. I doubt they'd make a move like that (at least not right now).

Might want to read the C-Store page a little more carefully... some items are for all characters on an account, some might be one per character unlocks.

For example, you'll note that costume packs have "Note: Purchase of this option unlocks these costumes for every Federation character on an account." attached to them, meaning you only need to buy it once and it will unlock for all your characters on an account.

Once you buy an item (Gold Tribble/ Borg BO/ Conny) on one character it will be unlocked for him on all c-store pages.

However on other characters they are only free to claim under "Special Unlocks", if you try to get them off the "Featured" page it will charge you again.

It's probably a bug.

Edit: Original post was incorrect. You can claim the Tribble on all your characters. The fact that it says "Buy Now" on the features page is a bug. Fortunately, you can't actually buy it, and if you go to the Special Unlocks tab, you can claim it on all your characters after its been purchased.

Thanks Destra, I must say, I find that quite surprising.

Then i assume the same goes for the Pet Targ...
Any chance of a refund on my 120 cryptic points i wasted purchasing the "Pet Targ" when i was on my fed toon?
Because if what you says is the inteded function then it should be impossible to buy a Pet Targ on a federation character.

I am beginning to suspect the "Featured" page is broken, as two people have been claimed to be able to buy the Targ on their Federation Character from that page. Yet under "Special Unlocks" it clearly claims you are not able to do this.

I would pass this on to your co-workers who do the c-store to check.
