Happy Easter! New Version Out!

Guess what, I found some free time to dive a little deeper into AchStats code base again - et voilĂ , here is the new 1.20 version!Age-restricted AppsUnrestricted games but with age-restricted DLCs are now all indexed by AchStats. This also applies to completely age-restricted games with their DLCs. I've backported some already done AchStas 2.0 stuff for that. Higher Success RatesI've tried to utilize the Steam Web API much more in favor of the deprecated community XML data. It's still cumbersome in terms of the available informations, but adding and updating profiles should now be A LOT more successful than before!Completed TranslationsMost of the existing translations are now up2date again. Thanks to all maintainers still caring about that.More EnhancementsI've also improved the handling of private profiles and private only game details and friendships respectively. Rankings now displays proper hints and icons instead of nothing or zeros. The European GDPR regulations are also officially part of the release.What's Next?Depending on the spare time I will try to finally tackle loading times of the games list and huge profiles. But until then, stay safe and healthy! Happy Easter!

Hello there!

How are you doing? We're currently deep into celebrating our 8th birthday! I would like to take this opportunity to announce that we've entered a cooperation with Game DB[gamedb.online]. We're now linking each other and from our point of view it is a nice addition beyond AchStats's core features.We've also hit another milestone: AchStats is now tracking more than half a million profiles and more than two million achievements! So much data! Check out the numbers in detail here: https://www.achievementstats.com/index.php?action=statistics

Hardware failures

We have currently some extended downtime due to serious hardware failures. One SSD is completely broken and the other hard drive has some bad sectors damaging the database. So far we have backed up the remaining readable data, exchanged one SSD and right now sync'ing the RAID system again. Stay tuned for more updates

Check Your Game Details Privacy Setting

I guess you've already read about some new profile privacy settings, so I'm keeping this short and simple: Make sure your "Game details" are set to public again or AchStats won't work as expected! Here's the full announcement from the Steam Blog:https://steamcommunity.com/games/593110/announcements/detail/1667896941884942467

Happy AchStats Day!

Today is our 6th anniversary! And another year means another version! Most of the features are already well-known and deployed, like the achievement spam handling. Currently are 493 games marked as spam and not tampering with your hard earned cheevos. See the full announcement here.So what are the newer features of 1.19? We have now a dedicated view for deleted achievements of a single game. The most notorius example would be Rise of the Triad[www.achievementstats.com] dropping from 95 to 80 achievements.Other enhancements include substraction of voided achievements in your extended stats and bug fixes for displaying time periods in the calendar.Hope you like the new release! See you next time!
