Hardware Upgrade

Just a quick info, we are now starting the process to put additional hard drives into our server. This should give us the much needed disk space causing all the outages in the last weeks.On another note, this group recently hit 7000 members! Welcome aboard!

Let's celebrate with New Version!

It's the 11th birthday of AchStats and I've got a present for ya! For todays occasion I've prepared a neat little new date filter feature!Where to findYou can now filter by time period in various histories and achievement listings! Crawl through newly added or deleted cheevos, check out the unlocks in a profile's or game's history and even all the badges!How to useEvery field in the date filter is optional, i.e. Just limited by year and the remaing from/to fields are pre-filled accordingly. Examples: Filter to year 2010 - December the 31st at 23:59:59 is set automatically Filter from day 15 - January of current year at Midnight is set automatically Filter to month February - 28th day with current year is set automatically Filter from hour 1 pm of November 2009 to Nov 2009 - the 1st Nov with minutes 0 and seconds 0 as well as 30th Nov at 23:59:59 are set automaticallyAs you can see it is a pretty handy and easy tool to use!Try it yourselfThe new filter is now live together with our annual golden theme! Some translations have also been updated by our loyal maintainers and are complete again. Give it a shot! What else?You might remember some downtimes since we ran out of disk space. We've therefore stopped to host avatar images ourselves and are now directly linking to Steam instead. This freed up a whopping 23 GB of space! Since then the system is running smooth again.Enjoy this update!

Merry Christmas 2022

Another year passed and it's Christmas Eve again! I have good and bad news for you:The bad news is we ran out of disk space. Calculating the ranking table is therefore currently not possible and will stay unchanged until a solution is found.Good news is we have a Resident Evil 7 Biohazard key as a little Christmas present for you! You have to guess only one letter (question mark), so be quick! Here you go: GWGAY-G?7JC-Z697PI'm going to chime in later and post a comment with another key for Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster! Even if you miss the RE7 present, you might still have a chance to get RE0!Thanks to NoVeXX for providing these keys and merry X-mas everyone!

10th Anniversary!

It's hard to believe, but we started AchStats a full decade ago! Now ten years later we're still alive and kicking! In terms of a special update, this was already deployed last week for more performance facing the huge amount of newly added profiles.Speaking of new profiles, it is still going on: Just another ~30,000 additions in the last two days totaling in ~984k profiles! Those are just not immediately crawled or the update queue is going to explode again. So the journey of AchStats continues and some day we might release version 2.0 as a complete overhaul. Maybe for the 20th anniversary? Stay healthy and keep on achievement hunting!

WTF?

Granted, the site was never the fastest but in the recent days it really slowed down and was barely usable. So I was trying to figure the reason out and noticed a really big influx of newly added profiles. Why? I have no idea, but just to give you a number:At the beginning of this year we tracked ~657k profiles. At the end of January we counted ~718k profiles. After two more weeks the number climbed up to ~822k! More than 100,000 profiles have been added in under two weeks! That's kinda insane compared to the usual growth.We're currently at ~837k profiles, that means 180,000 new profiles in this year only. To put it in another perspective: It took from August 2019 to 2022 to grow for the same number of new profiles.ANYWAY, I had to do something, so I sat down and implemented a persistent cache for best achievements of each profile. This was the bottleneck and had to be solved. Et voilĂ , it is now active and speeds up the overview, global rankings and friend rankings! Consider this as an early anniversary gift! Go try it out!! Until next week!

Database and Halloween!

If you haven't seen yet, the site is back online since two weeks and the database is running smoothly. We had to set up everything again, but this time with the proper import configuration to prevent another three weeks of downtime. By now you can tell it did work, so we can fully focus on the more fun things: Halloween!The calendar is PACKED with date specific achievements and your profile is FULL TO THE BRIM with upcoming cheevos. All newly added seasonal achievements are maintained, so take a look and don't miss them! Good hunting and Happy Halloween!

Database doesn't want to play

Remember the inconsistencies after the last restore? Turns out they are technical not possible but still exist and while trying to fix them the database did not liked that at all. Last week we had no time whatsoever to take care about it. We are now looking into it. More updates soon. Thanks for your understanding.
