Sorry to disappoint but I looked at the statistic for the website and you are not even close. I hands down win that one by a country mile. I know it doesn't say that much since it isn't just one person from each country but the UK isn't even top 5 when it comes to traffic to the website.

A couple of months ago, Strider was even more quirky for me. It ran the graphics around 1/4 speed most of the time. The save file said I had played just over 5 hours, but Steam counted 20. (Side note: It was fun being a ninja with constant bullet time, but the cut scenes dragged longer than their welcome.)

Alicia Quatermain: Secrets Of The Lost Treasures & Tomb Raider would both count as a game from a game series I think?

Old comment: Another month, more games in my sights! Before I pick my games, I have question for anyone who has completed Prey previously. I'm kinda itching to play that one (since I have it installed and everything) but I'm unsure if it would count for the event. I don't think it would count under remake because of how different it ended up being from the older game, and it has none of the tags needed. BUT I think it could fit under 'Multiple endings' since there are some, but I'm not 100% sure since I can't really google it due to spoilers. So basically my question is if Prey fits that sub category or not? :D

Regardless, I'll mostly start with Carmaggeddon Max Damage. Then it'll be up to my time and/or motivation to add one of the 3 games I didn't manage to beat in a former event.
EDIT: I actually managed to beat Carmageddon quickly. Time to dust off Strife.

Regarding Inner Chains:
I am not sure where the special character in the name is? Unless you mean the space which does not count no. You got any kind of proof that it is split in chapters? I don't see it mentioned on the store page and I haven't seen anything on the uploaded screenshots that would indicate that to me.

I'd like to try finishing Grim Legends: The Forsaken Bride (game is part of a series).

I had wanted to submit this game last month, and told myself that I wouldn't unless I actually finished it -- mostly because I was getting stressed out in previous months committing to finishing a game and then rushing / forcing myself to play rather than just enjoying the game. And a few times I committed to playing games that turned out to be terrible, and remember forcing myself to finish it anyway because I wrote that I would do it -- even when it was painful and very un-enjoyable. I'm starting to get the impression I need to stop stressing about this so much, and just enjoy myself. :)

No need to stress yourself out over it :)
This is all for the fun of it. What I usually do is play a short fitting game first, to have the stress of finishing a game out of the way. And then I play whatever I want. If I finish it great, if not nothing bad happens.

You know what, most of the time the Artifex Mundi games have a "Finished the Game" achievement that I can show as proof that I finished it, and this one lacks one for Casual mode. But, you know what, I am tired of stressing out about this, I am gonna take your advice and just enjoy knowing that I finished the game -- I feel as if I'm sipping a margarita on a pleasant sunny beach right now when I think about having finally finished this game! :)

When i think of it overall I think it might be my favourite. I like artifex mundi but they are all kinda the same in the end. Grim legends was the 2nd game I played after doing time mysteries so it really just stuck in my head of how great it was. If I had played it later after doing a bunch of others number 3 most likely would've been my favourite
There's only one I really disliked and that was dark heritage. I just couldn't stand what the people looked like in that game.

Nope, that would be very much incorrect.

The event went live on the 31st of May at 23:31 our time. Your first achievement was 31 May at 20:30 our time. I am willing to give you an hour of head start (and I already did that when I counted the achievements) since your time zone is one hour ahead of us according to your Steam profile, but I am sure as hell not giving you any more than that.

I am positive i started after i saw it. Not this thread but event on pagywos site. I picked few games according to rules then played one. You can reject my entry because of official start date, but i'm definitely not lying about this.
As for achievements, 7 of them are before 22:30 UTC+3: 9:53pm, 10:03pm, 9:40pm, 9:30pm, 10:10pm, 10:22pm, 9:39pm. Playtime could be around 2,5 hours, i don't know.

Just because the event is on the PAGYWOSG website it doesn't mean that is actually open. We prepare things days in advance sometimes if we have time/know which theme is going to win. If you would have bothered to open the even on the website you would have seen that you actually can not submit any games yet (for a very obvious reason) because submissions where open on the website AFTER the SG thread went live and I am sure as hell not lying about this either and have plenty of proof to back my claims.

I have no problem accepting already started games before the event but the playtime must be marked correctly. Speaking about that is there any idle time that should be taken into account as well? Your playtime is almost 3x the HLTB main story playtime.

And if you delete the starting stats one more time on any game (if there is something you think is wrong let us know, don't just go delete stuff that shouldn't be deleted) I will remove you from the event for tampering with the playtimes. And starting with next month the playtimes/achievements will start counting at 00:00 UTC +0 for everyone.

Okay then. I checked the site on May 31 > I saw the event > Picked a game and played: Please don't frame it like i'm trying to cheat my way in.

I was planning to send my computer to warranty service, that's why i hurried for the event. In the future, i won't begin before the start of the month.

No idle time. If you're familiar with roguelike games, there is high learning curve to be good at finishing the run. Theoretically, you can finish this one in 2 hours or so, but to get there you should spend much more. There are a lot of runs in my playtime. I don't remember what it shows but i can share a screenshot of my in-game stats.

I thought it showed incorrectly, that's why i edited. Tampering was not my intention, I won't edit again. Does these stats qualify for the event?

Please do not edit the pre-approved times in the future unless we ask you to. This is just producing more extra work for us that is absolutely not necessary.

If you have time/achievements before the event started they should be filled out when you add the game by yourself, if not we will check those before approving the game as a new entry and edit those accordingly. If we did this, please do not change it again afterwards. Also please add any idle time to the time before the month. If your time is a lot longer than the HLTB time just add a comment to the notes section like e.g. missed some achievements and going for a seond playthrough or had problems with controls etc.

If you think something is wrong with the times, please ask here and we will take a look. Do not change it back yourself.

Other than that the game is okay and will be approved.

As i said, i get it. It was a misunderstanding. I only edited because i thought event was live before i start playing. I never did before, won't do in the future. I will contact you guys if i think something's incorrect.

As i said, there is no idle time in my playtime. No, i didn't have problems with controls... It just took me that much to finish. After collecting in-game currency, you can upgrade your hero between runs. There are a lot of runs in my playtime.

Yeah i understood all those things.
Just added these as examples for why you could have more playtime, not saying it is the case here. And the idle time comment was just a general reminder, to let you know if your time for a game should be on the higher side to simply leave a note, because then we know about it and it will make it a lot easier on all of us.

Hello MouseWithBeer

I submitted those three games in the previous event for May.
Is this proof will be enough for you?

And I have two questions here for the next events. Could you answer please?
1) Should I necessarily submit a comment in the recent sg thread and submit games to the pagywosg website ONLY AFTER your's or other people in charge formal approval?
What I did this time is submitted them to the pagywosg website and then in a 5 minutes max submitted the comment to this thread.
So my comment was here but with a little delay and I understand it was not verified yet and no proof was provided.
2) Where is the most suitable place to put the proof here on the sg thread or in the description field for the pagywosg webste?

Just saying which month and year it was would be more than enough (if you add a link to it even better, but not necessary).

You don't need to wait for our approval before submitting to the website but I would suggest to comment first because I guess it was just unfortunate timing that I hit those games for approval in that 5 minute window in between :/ Because otherwise I would have just asked you to add the proof without deleting them.

Hey MouseWithBeer
No idle time for this game at all, I would mention it if there is some as I did for every game I have idled before and put into event.
Won it from Khayta at June 6 https://take.ms/5EOXV
It is pure gameplay, unfortunately I've selected medium complexity and this is really hard and punishing game. I would select easy if I would know in advance (=
Plus I wanted to achieve all the possible achievements like following https://take.ms/KYdIA they are pretty fun to use on the page showcase.

If I won't collect everything I could and won't die that much it could be faster (=

PS: As far as I know there is no upper border time limit for the game to complete or beat in this group.
We are not speed challenging anyone here. Are we?

Hi Vladislav,

no we are not asking for speed runs. But as described in the rules here, we will check playtimes against the average HLTB times to check for any excessive playtimes and when your playtime is more than twice the HLTB time this raises red flags.
It does not necessarily mean that your game was idled, but without an explanation we unfortunately cannot know if you had any problems or maybe added another run to get missing achievments or something similar.

So to avoid any questions like this, simply add some explanation or if the game was idled (and idling is anything where the game is running in the background, but you are not actively playing) add the time to the time before the month.

2 weeks ago

I understand everything written above.
Did my explanation fits?

I also want to mention that I'm that type of gamer who like to get to the every possible location to complete every possible branch if I really like the game.
I don't like speed runs as a concept. That eliminates the effort designers\animators\writers\developers put into the game.
Not all games deserve such approach but many of em.
So I'm basically playing pretty slow.

And I have one clarification question regards "to avoid any questions like this, simply add some explanation".
Do you mean I should add some explanation in advance or just answer moderator questions when required as I did when MouseWithBeer asked me?

Yep, I already approved it as played a few hours ago :)

And yea in the notes is enough if you say something along the lines of: there is no idle time, I just took my time to explore everything/did a lot of side missions/was really bad at the game/whatever applicable (doesn't need to be more than a couple of words). You only need that if you playtime is a lot higher than the expected HLTB time, otherwise there is no need for it.
We had to implement this because some people were idling +10 hours on some really short games that there is no way they would possibly ever take more than like 2.

What I meant was if you see your game time getting longer than the average HLTB time and you have not idled the game then you can add a comment to your game entries notes section explaining why. This might save you from us asking you questions about it ;)

Though if we still have questions simply answering them is also okay.

thanks for all the explanations!
I would try not to forget about checking it next time but don't be mad at me if I will (=

BTW: I should mention that stats on the site is far from ideal for the game I've selected and we are discussing here.
Speedrun with cheats and without achievements on easy take about an hour. Normal run on easy could take about 2-3 hours but even on easy it won't be possible to complete in 3 hours as mentioned on the HLTB website. There are achievements like pass every level without being hit at all and pass every level with a single life.
If you'd try the game you would understand what I'm talking about.
ONLY IF you are not a professional hardcore platformer speedrunner XD

Sorry for being difficult on this one but the only place I know where to check what is in "Sniper: Ghost Warrior Trilogy" package is currently broken and since the package doesn't seem to exist anymore I can't find it on SteamDB. Could you please just screenshot the licenses page around the date you activated the key if it by any chances shows all the games that were activated? If it doesn't I guess a screenshot of the store page of the game showing when it was added to the account works fine as well too.

And in case someone else is able to confirm this one instead:
Is this in the Sniper: Ghost Warrior Trilogy pack that had an ID of 36904?

Ignore all of that, Sam provided proof and the website works again now so I could double confirm it :)

Beaten World's Dawn. The characters are great, but I feel like they it was slow in Fall and Winter.seasons. Needs a bit more mini-games or activities to do. I quickly had too much money and nothing to really spend it on except waiting for the next season to participate in the next festival. I like how you could assign some chores to your dog and your wife even helps you out with feeding the livestock. I enjoyed getting to know each character.

If you still happen to have the save file (it is chapter 13), a tip I ended up looking online for that made it easier (particularly against the vehicles) was not to actually aim for the head but rather the center of the circle even if it looks like it shouldn't hit.

Hi Sam, thank you for hosting this event. I'm sure it's really tiring. You and Mouse try hard and I appreciate it. I try to join every month :)

I just have a question. Yesterday I added a new game to play on pagywosg. It's Book of Demons. I started the game yesterday but it looks like I've made some stats before the start of the event. That is actually wrong. Can we please fix it? I mean I added the game and a couple of hours later, I started. Perhaps I should have waited until the game is approved. If this is the rule, it's fine. I'm just asking because I don't know how it works. Here is my stats for Book of Demons, you can see that I started it yesterday.
Thanks again for all your efforts.

I think it should fall under these rules:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/105000/A_New_Beginning__Final_Cut/ (it has at least 2 identical consecutive digits)

or if that's not ok, this rule:

Mouse's fav. National Days

  • games with the following tags: Simulation, Building, Management, Sandbox, Family Friendly, Economy, Colorful, Open World
  • games with at least two 3s or two 4s in the appID (e.g. Planet Coaster is 493340)
  • games won in April (because mouse won Planet Coaster in April)
  • games with cookies*
  • games with female protagonist/villain/antagonist**
  • games with cats***
  • very old wins - aka games you procrastinated playing for a long time - aka 20 oldest unplayed/not yet beaten wins****

* because there is a national chocolate chip cookie day in August and mouse likes them, but to be honest, who does not like cookies
** because national women's day is in August and well mouse is female
*** because there is the International Cats Day and well even though mouse should be afraid of them, I mean after all she is a mouse, she usually goes awww a cute cat
**** because there is the National Lazy Day in August

Short explanation for the theme: Well Mouse is playing/streaming Planet Coaster at the moment so the first few subthemes are about that.
Then when thinking what else to put in there I looked up the National Days of August and found out there is actually a National Rollercoaster Day in August. So then I went through the list and found some things that mouse actually likes

Don't remember if these have already been suggested before.. anyway..
Both themes are orginated from the Ferragosto italian holiday.
The first is due to the association with the first part of the word part ferr- with iron (ferro means iron in italian), even though "ferr" has nothing to do with iron :v yes, agosto is august
The second is a pun I made time ago (which I forgot but the word got stuck in my mind) which involved mouse instead of iron.
I know I haven't provided many categories to choose from, but they should be pretty wide.. just, I wanted to share them, for once that I got ideas for a theme (don't even remember if I already suggested 'em in the past.. sorry if that's the case, too lazy to check) =P


Iron

  • Games with iron in their name Tekken (iron fist) and Fe (chemical symbol of iron) could be valid entries
  • Games with 26 (iron atomic number) in their appid
  • Games where iron is involved (industries, blacksmiths, mining..)
    • Special mention for games with trains, since "railroad" is ferrovia in italian (which, as you can see, has iron in its name)
  • Games with metal soundtracks and/or other metal components (characters, events etc.)

Mouses

  • Games with mouse(s)
  • Games with beer (definitely not a tribute) =P
  • Games released in one year of the rat
  • Games won in one year of the rat

EDIT: Well, seems mouses are kind of a popular suggestions.. well, I'm not gonna delete it =P

I guess I should make a statement regarding the state of the event considering this is the 2nd month now that Samwise has been nice enough to host the SG thread about it:
I was being burnt out by the event and decided to take a month off in May and let her host it. I also borught up the tought about shutting the event in the near future (this is still a very big question, will see how it will go from now on). I am back from my "vacation" but I will not host the SG thread anymore, Samwise will do that as long as she is willing to do it. However I will still be running this in the backgroud and I will take care of the events on the website and group invites so you will still see me around just not as much.

So if you have any questions regarding the event Samwise will probably be the right person to ask, if you broke the website or want to know anything to that I am the right person. Giveaways can be forwarded to either of us and we will organise ourselves.

Take care of yourself, Mouse. I am very familiar with "burnout," and it is not something with which you want to tangle. Take a break (or more than one) before it gets to that point. That way, you can always go on extended hiatus without hating the thing you are leaving.

And like NoSenses suggested, let some of those wanting to help you shoulder part of the burden. Nothing facilitates "burnout" like trying to do everything yourself.

Take care of yourself :)

As it is my theme I'll try to answer as many of the "does this game fit" questions as possible :)

And just my personal opinion:

The site was intended as a relief and time saver. But if you still have to compare everything with here and always have to check whether someone might have forgotten to add something, then that is still too much effort.

Therefore only what was entered on the page should count. So if someone misses the point to update their data, then that's the way it is. If I don't update my stuff at BLAEO, nobody does it for me too.

Add some moderator status to the site which can confirm entries but not play statuses, then some of us can do this part of the job. ;)

It's what I have been doing all along in the background ;)
Running around and compairing/approving stuff. And yeah the page is a huge time saver, but it is still a lot to do for one person (especially since we have grown a lot), which is why we have decided to do a responsibility sharing now, e.g. me being the person to answer all of your questions while mouse does some approving in the background (if I do not do it for her and get yelled at for it :p)

And I totally agree about the people should be responsible for their own entries to the site. I mean i will add something if I see it missing, but I usually do not go through the whole thread every day to check. That's far too much work and I actually do have a life outside of SG ;)

Will try :)

Yea I have been mulling around implementing some changes to make our lifes easier, but the problem is to actually find some time and will to sit down write down everything and then implement it. Do you happen to have some machine laying around that can stop time?

Since I did not make the website adding different roles is not as easy and if I were to get someone else I would honestly want them to have both (which is an option now already anyways). But then again since I will only run the website now I think it will be a lot easier for me anyways as I "got rid" of the annoying part of this to me and except on the first and last few days of the month the workload is usually not too bad.

I'd estimate a big chunk of the work is to verify whether the games fit the theme (and questions surrounding that), so one way to save time can be to return to a theme-less version. While having one makes it more interesting, it's certainly better to have a simplified event less burdening for you then canceling it all together.

Would be sad to see the best event on steamgifts go away otherwise. Your (and of-course also Sam's) efforts to make it happen are greatly appreciated :)

As long as people actually provide the proof that is required checking for theme doesn't take long at all (especially this month is super straight forward), the other checks take much longer (actually SG win, previous playtime, no rule breaking, legit playtime,...). And honestly other people can correct me if I am wrong but I think the theme is kinda what makes the event charming and interesting and I always look forward to see what ideas people bring to the table when it comes to themes.

What always bothered me more and burned me out were having to deal with people trying to bend/go around/abuse the rules and somehow expect that everything will be always approved immediately like we don't have lives outside the event.

actually SG win

I think that could be fairly effectively automated by the website, if the programmers are still around ^^
but you're right, there are few more aspects over-all.

the theme is kinda what makes the event charming and interesting

I certainly agree with that, but I think to remember the event once was without one and it's just an idea how to possibly keep it running at a lower level.

Anyway, thanks for your all work (・◡・)ノ

There is a function on the website that does the heavy lifting for that already :) There is so many different exceptions there that I don't think automating it is a good idea.

Yep, but I have seen the numbers of people participating drastically increased once the monthly themes have become a thing. May just be a coincidence, who knows.

And now a special task for our math-loving people:

What is the probability with a 6-digit number that 2 consecutive numbers are the same considering that the last one is always a 0?

I know that the Steam ID is not always 6 digits, but I don't want to make it more complicated: D

1 month ago

Comment has been collapsed.

You mean, that any consecutive pair is repeated? Ok, I might be able to solve this, let me know if you find any errors...

Here comes the wall!

Let us organize the discussion:

  • A "bad" number is a number with no repeated consecutive digits that ends with a 0;
  • A "sneaky" number is a number with no repeated consecutive digits EXCEPT that it ends with "00";

Now denote by f(N) the amount of bad numbers with N digits, and g(N) the amount of sneaky numbers with N digits. We want to compute f(6), and at this point you are wondering why I care about g(N) at all. Trust me. :D

Computing f for very small numbers is easy. For example, f(1)=0 and f(2)=9 (we got 10, 20, ..., 90).

For f(3), you can start with any of 9 digits (1 to 9), then you have 8 options for the second digit (not the first digit, not a 0). So f(3)=72.

N=4 gets a bit tricky. To assemble a bad number, we have:
-- 9 options for the first digit;
-- 9 options for the second digit (anything but the 1st -- it could be 0);
-- 9 options for the third digit (anything but the 2nd digit);
-- 1 option for the last digit (namely, 0);
So it might seem we have 9^3 options... But, WAIT, I wrongly counted here "sneaky" 4-digit numbers (ending with 00)! How many "sneaky" numbers are there? See, that is why we care about g(4) as well.

That said -- a (N+1)-digit "sneaky" number is exactly a bad N-digit number, followed by the final 0. So I am saying here that g(N+1)=f(N). Great! In particular:

f(4) = 9^3 - g(4) = 9^3 - f(3)

But this reasoning can be repeated for other N's! In fact, what I am saying is that, in general:
f(N) = 9^(N-1) - g(N) = 9^(N-1) - f(N-1)

So now we iterate (and I will write f(3)=9^2-9 to get a nice pattern):
f(5) = 9^4 - f(4) = 9^4 - 9^3 +f(3) = 9^4 - 9^3 + 9^2 - 9
f(6) = 9^5 - 9^4 + 9^3 - 9^2 +9 = 53145.

Summary: if you restrict yourself to 6 digits ending with 0, there are 53145 BAD numbers from a total of 90000 6-digit numbers (ending with 0). Chance of bad = 53145/90000 = 59.05%, so chance of having a GOOD number is...

40.95%.

That is, about 40% of the games on steam can be played by that rule. :D

Cheers!

P.S.: In fact, f(N) = 9^(N-1) - 9^(N-2)+....+-9, which is the sum of terms of a geometric progression of ratio (-1/9), so it can be summarized as:
f(N) = (-1)^N + [9^N - (-1)^N] / 10
which begs the question -- could we have counted this some other way and get directly to this answer?

I have no idea if the result is correct but it's in a range I had expected.

I heard once about this birthday paradadox where in a group of I think about 20 people the probability for two of them sharing the same birthday was over 50% I think. Funnily in my company once there were 12 employees including the boss and three times two people shared a birthday, so math confirmed by life ;)

Also I found quite a lot examples in my own library for the consecutive number rule. The real number would have to include 3,4,5 and 7 digit numbers too, but it means that 40% of the 6-digit number games on Steam have consecutive numbers :)

1 month ago

Comment has been collapsed.

Yes, the birthday problem says that if you have 23 random people in a room, there is slightly more than 50% chance that at least 2 share a common birthday (=day and month). I actually have given talks about probability and this, and I usually separate 40 people to do the experiment live (with 40 people, matching odds are about 90%), and so far EVERY TIME I did get a match... Since I have done this a couple dozen times, I wonder where the other 10% is.... :D :D

Small print: the 50% thing assumes birthdays are equally distributed along the year (which is slightly false) and that the people are random and independent from each other (also often false). So, technically, the odds are even ABOVE the calculation for matching birthdays.

First off all welcome 😊
As Jaffa already pointed out this is pretty normal. The stats on the website will get updated through a script that we have to run manually, so until we do that your entries will look a bit strange. Most likely it is for a game we did not have yet so there is no entry in the database for it and stats need to be gotten through steam first. At least I think that is the case (have not written the code myself).

Hi there,

for participating in the event please go to the event page , log in via steam and then add your game with the correct category, i think games split in missions should work fine here. This is so your gaming progress can be tracked. Once you are finished with the game, e.g. have the achievement for finishing the game, you should change the status from unfinished to beaten (or completed, if you go for getting all achievments).
Once that is done your achievments and playtime (please add any idling time to "time before the month") will be checked and if all looks fine, your game will be approved. After your game is approved you will find the links to the invite only GA's on the eventpage.

Please also read the entry post on this page, as well as the FAQ's they should answer most of your questions. If you have any others. please feel free to ask.

Hi! Thanks again for the effort to the people who make this possible. I came (again) with a couple of questions.

First: If, for example, I won a game and a dlc for that game. I beat them both, but it would only count as beating one (the main game), right? Given that there is no separation in the achievements section.

Second: Now it could be because I am still not approved, but last month I was approved to join the giveaways (after beating one game) but I couldn't see the giveaways that were post here. Now, for example, it says there is one for The Walking Dead: The Final Season b, for example, but I can't see it in the section of group's giveaways. Am I missunderstanding something?

Third: What about multiplayer only games? Is there a way to consider them as beaten here? Or only completing all achievements would count in that case?

I will address the rest later but for the part two you will find the links to the invite only GAs on the eventpage once you have been cleared. See also the FAQs https://pagywosg.xyz/help/faq#rewards

We cannot open them here on the webpage since then the whole purpose of an invite only GA would be gone and we cannot mail them to every single person anymore, because that will just be too much work with over 100 participants each month. The GA for the walking dead is still running btw.

If there is no seperation in achievements it can only be counted as one game. Though it is of course possible to add a previously completed game, if you get a new, non-cosmetic DLC, meaning it does add new levels.

Second Now it could be because I am still not approved, but last month I was approved to join the giveaways (after beating one game) but I couldn't see the giveaways that were post here.

As already pointed out before you will find the links to the GA's on the eventpage.

Third: What about multiplayer only games? Is there a way to consider them as beaten here? Or only completing all achievements would count in that case?

It really depends on the game here. If it is a game with some kind of campaign with achievements then beating that campaign, e.g. getting the achievments is enough. If it is some endless thing I would say getting the achievments that most people (50%+) got should be enough. But it is kinda a case-by-case thing.

Stealth participant, here. I am doing Kentucky Route Zero, this month. If I can finish before the middle of the month, I will try to add another short one. (Brothers, maybe?)

Just a question: I've been playing Dead Man's Draw - at what point do you think this should be considered Beaten? Level 34 achievement? 1 star tournaments? Something else?
Here are my achievements haha https://steamcommunity.com/id/jadedg/stats/appid/262450

Added the game to the event page for you, since it does not have any achivements, please provide a screenshot of the end credits once you are done with it. Also if you are ideling the game for any reason, please add this time to the time before the month. Once you are finished with the game change the status on the event page to beaten (for finishing the main story) or completed (for finishing also all side stores / achievements). After your game time/achievements will be approved you can then see the invite only GA's on the eventpage.

Viel Spaß mit dem Spiel :D

Danke :)
So far so good, had to tweak a file to even be able to save the game...so I started the game about 5 times because until I changed that, tried mods to make it look better but it somehow didn't work (because of versions or something) but I don't care enough and play vanilla now. It's a good immersive sim kind of game which I enjoy a lot though the gunplay is a bit annoying...can't wait to finally play all 3 of the games...since I also bought Clear Sky on cheap last week.

Please change your playtime settings to public or I can not verify the playtime. It is fine to set them back to private once I verify it, but I will have to go back to public again so I can verify it as played as well (after that it can be private once again).

I'll do that but does it have to be right now or when I finished it?
I'm 4 hours in and from what I read it's going to take me at least 15 more.

Basically once at the beginning, so mouse can verify how much of the game was played before the event started (even if that is none we need to check at the beginning). After it was initially approved, you can set it back to private. And then once again, when you are finished so that we can approve the playtime :)

I have a question. I won Bioshock some years ago but never got around to completing it. I've played a couple of hours and decided the game wasn't for me at the time. I'm planning on giving it another go in this event on the basis that it's part of a series. Since it doesn't have achievements I'll take a screenshot of the credits when I finish.

Is that okay for an entry, or should I pick something that I haven't played before?

Totally fine. Just fill in the time before the event in the event page, so we can get accurate stats.

Hi, I submitted 2 'request to play' games in pagywosg but weren't approved ( I guess ??), because they were deleted. Now I can't submit any other game. Is there a new rule regarding that ?

You submitted 3 non SG wins (and didn't leave a comment here so I didn't bother contacting you) while you have wins that fit the theme and since it didn't seem to get the hint I removed your rights from the website so I wouldn't have to remove even more games that didn't follow the most basic rules.

Oh my god I completely forgot that I have to submit from my wins ! I'm so sorry. I promise I won't forget again. I was so concentrated in finding a game to match the rules. And the last of them was a win indeed but from another website. I'm really sorry and thanks for clarifying this.

Thanks for taking the time to gather suggestions for me. I really appreciate it. I'm really so sorry that I mixed things up. I didn't do it on purpose, I was just really tired (lack of sleep while taking care of my little kid). You guys are awesome and thanks again for taking care of this amazing event every month. #neverstopplaying

You might wanna read the rules that have been linked right at the top of the thread for months. To make it easier for you here :)

i'm aware of the rules and i wasn't idling. i did a normal playthrough making sure to get all collectibles, then another playrhrough for the nightmare difficulty achievement. picked up the two survival mode achievements in between. this was over two days. 15 hours gametime, minus 2~3 hours i had before i registered.

actually now that i'm thinking about it, why is there even a rule about reporting idle time?

Well HLTB states 6 1/2h completionist time. So if we double that we are at 13h, which is still below your 15h and honestly rather generous.
I've played the game myself and I was not good at it at all. I have all but the nightmaremode achievement and it took me a bit more than 6h.
So unless you spent hours in survival mode (and if you did that you should have stated it in your entry, because we do not have a crystal ball ;) ) your time looks rather bloated.

survivor probably took about sixty, ninety minutes tops. part of the reason was probably because i watched a walkthrough on youtube as i played to make sure i didn't miss any collectibles, though i had it playing at 2x speed, that's still an extra 50% gametime. i didn't know a leaderboard even existed, or that it was ranked by gametime. this is my second month participating. i joined up to clear some games from my backlog and to get in on the extra giveaways. it wouldn't matter to me if i received zero hours gametime.
edit: nightmare mode took about 2 hrs 20 min if you wanna take that into consideration as well.

Well feel free to readd the game with the idle time then. From what you wrote above that would make it something like 2.5h (nightmare) + 1.5h (survival) and take my shitty time of 6.5h for all the other things. That would give you a total playtime of 10.5h. Which basically means add all other time to the time before the event and that should be good enough.

And ideling does not mean strictly ideling for cards, but basically having the game open without playing it at that moment, e.g. the time you have it open while you look at the youtube video to figure out where the collectibles are, or chatting with friends, answerig questions (something I am bound to do a lot XD ) etc. We will usually not bother if it is just a few minutes or an h longer than the HLTB, but your times were nearly tripple of the HLTB times, so yeah that sends red flags, especially without any explanations.

To the why was the game deleted. Well that has something to do with the second rule that was added in Feb:

no comment on this thread? If there is something wrong with the game you submitted it gets automatically deleted, I am tired of running after people

Basically we are no longer running after the people to find some old comment in some thread, so we can reach them. We have grown much to big for that. So to prevent that games are simply deleted in the future, simply post a comment in the corresponding monthly thread. Most people post which games they want to play, some simply leave a post along the lines off, here is a post so you can contact me if there is anything wrong.
It makes your life and ours a lot easier.

Also when readding the game, simply put a link to my comment into the notes section of the game.

it's all good. i understand and have learned something from this. i'll leave deadlight off for now as i've already completed another game and unlocked the giveaways. i'll check future games against hltb to make sure they aren't over the average time and lower them as needed.

And to that second question, because we had memebers that thought letting their 2-3h games idle for 10h+ was a good idea, so they could get the top spot in the leaderboard. I have no idea why. But to get a more honest representation of the time each person spent on their entries we ask you all to add the idle times to your entries.

Quick question: What is the difference between "Beaten" and "Completed," and is there a defined way to determine that?

If I am correct about the first part, "Beaten" means you got through the main game, and "Completed" means you earned all the achievements. Correct me if I am wrong on that fact.

yeah basically that. completed is normally for 100% achievements but people still put it even if it doesnt have any. In the end it doesnt actually matter how you class things since its counted as the same no matter what

Yeah, you are right here. If you have a game without achievements where you have done everything humanly possible you can also set it to completed.
