SAFU is a tool that will unlock almost any given Steam achievement for the chosen game.
While I will admit there is a way better application wrote for this very purpose, SAFU was wrote using a weakness in the Steam-published game ‘Deadly 30’.
It works by using the bundled medals.exe file, which contains the achievement unlocking functions for the game mentioned before. SAFU will just hex replace the name of the achievements in the file with the one inputed. A steam_appid file is generated to tell medals.exe what game is running. Because of this method there are some limitations, namely the achievement’s name can’t be any longer than 19 characters.
You can download the source and binary below. Be aware that the script was wrote using AutoHotkey, and compiled with AHK2EXE, which triggers a false positive with some Antivirus software. You can run the script uncompiled if you have AutoHotkey installed.
