I figured I'd write one of these up to keep myself organized on here. I'll update this part periodically.

I originally found this site a few years ago by chance. I was bored at work and made a fake trophy list for Suikoden. Decided to look into it on Google to see if there was a community for something like that. Ended up finding this site and have been following it ever since.

I decided to try out developing achievements in July 2018 and I have to say, it's about as addicting as actually earning them.


Primary Focus
While I enjoy games of all types and plan to develop achievements for all platforms and game types, I have a preference for developing sets for hidden gems/sleeper hits and fan translated/English-friendly Japanese-only releases. The reason for this is to encourage players to try out some of the games I deem to be underdogs. The most I can hope for is strengthened fan support for these games. Of course, I will occasionally break this rule with cheevos for requested games (see later posts) and "I can't believe no one has done this yet" games (such as Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones).

Secondary Focus
I try to pretty things up around here. I look for game pages that are lacking info and images and fill them in accordingly. I do not keep track of the games I've done it to simply because that list has gotten ridiculous by this point.
I also want to clean up and organize the database as much as I can without having direct access to it. Fixing titles that are in all caps, renaming junk entries, trainers, duplicates, etc. to a general "~Z~Junk" type name so they're easier to find for the ones who are in charge of the database.

Random
- I do almost all of my game badges using assets from the games. Assets are pulled from screenshots or spriters-resource. If there is text in a badge, it's safe to assume that I mix and matched letters using the game's in-game font. I also do these exclusively in MS Paint for some reason.

Requests/Suggestions
- I have decided that in order to keep myself from being even more slammed and scatterbrained, I need to make some rules for this:
- Please do not request more than 20 games for me to choose from.
- I will only list up to five active requests per user that I will consider doing. As I mark them as completed, I may or may not add another one from the list.
- Please do not make additional request posts. If you want to make changes to your requests, please wait until your queue is finished and then edit your original post. Yes, I will see it. I make edits to this page almost daily.
- Please be patient with me. You will be the first to know when I begin actively developing a set you requested. You will be the first to know if there's significant progress. You will be the first to know when it's pushed to unofficial and core.
- Since my own set plans have priority, I cannot give an estimated date of completion for requests unless I have already begun working on the set. Please remember that the whole reason I am even open to requests is because sometimes I want to develop cheevos, but am dealing with roadblocks or I just plain don't know what to work on. This helps me stay busy as a developer.

Site/Community Projects:

- I am maintaining an unofficial list of the bestselling and highest rated games that are currently supported by RA, but do not have cheevos. The list can be found here.

Well it's probably impossible that I'll get to all of them. They're more or less games I want to have sets, whether I work on them or not.

And I'm holding back a ton of ps1 games since I can't add them to the database.

Not to mention all the consoles that aren't supported but are in the pipeline. Whew.

Either way, I just realized that I've been working kind of fast. 12 full sets and 1 partial since late July...
