    You can get steam achievements by using %command% method.

          Protip for WIndows 7 and above, if you hold SHIFT and Right Click the file, you can choose "Copy as Path" to copy the filename with full path and quotes to your clipboard which is super-useful.

          results in:
          "G:\Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\Stardew Valley.exe"
          EDIT: Doing this with directories allows you to open a (non-admin) command prompt at that location.

            By doing this, will it count the achievements too?

              Ok tested it and works like a charm. Thank you for this!


              Lets see whether achievements are being saved ...

                  Yes i can confirm this also. So to finalize. This will enable mods and achievements. NICE!

                  Thank you OP and the nice community people here around for this!

                      Seems like when I use this trick, the mods no longer work. Although it opens up the API window, and the modified Stardew application. All of the mods I have aren't doing a thing

                        sounds like you set the wrong exe in steam launch properties of stardew.

                            My overlay isn't working when I do this, I'm including a picture. Did I do this correctly or does the overlay not work with this?

                              Did you start the game through steam?

                                  Yes! You guys are the best! I was getting annoyed at not being able to have SMAPI work with steam and the new STORM API is still too new to switch over to so this thread has been super helpful!

                                  The only thing that worries me with my achievements is that I am not sure that milestones I reached while not playing through steam got registered... for example the achievement for 'cliques' (5 heart level with 4 people) did not registered even though I have at least 7 hearts level of friendship with 6 people... do you guys know anything about that?

                                    @Patchumz i've tried it mate. but doesn't work just for the overlay.
                                    but just to recap
                                    1. path in steam launch option
                                    2. launch game?
                                    or did i miss something?

                                    Edit: Missed the biggest note here. "RUN THROUGH STEAM"
                                    Thanks guys :D
