Hat accolade issue
I've collected all the hats on easy or medium (can't remember off the top of my head) except for the nightmare one. I then played it on nightmare and got the nightmare hat but it wont show up on my other list of hats - basically there is no way of getting the hat accolade on anything other than nightmare? Am I right?

That's correct, sort of. This bothers me too, that my regular save (you can change the difficulty between Easy, Regular and Hard, as much as you want, whenever you want, in Settings. Only Nightmare is separate. Once in, never out, and you have to set it when starting a new game) can never have the Nightmare Hat - The Knight's Helm. Especially since, no contest, it's the strongest hat there is. But as long as you have your completed Nightmare save, you can enter it, put the hat on, and your characters will still be wearing it in your other games.
On the plus side, the Hat Accolade ISN'T to get all hats. It's to get, I think, 35 hats, when there's about 40 or so. I got it on my Easy save without the Knight's Helm. If you're still missing it, check if your Easy save still has a bunch of gaps. If so, you might not have found Hatterson's Hat Shop. I think all his hats are cheap and weak, but they're good enough to help get the Accolade. Put the Dragon Engine onto the ship, then you can walk off the near edge. After changing the Engine, if you take the offered tour of the ship, you'll see Hatterson waving at you.
