FAQ


Who can participate

Anyone who does not have any unactivated wins, multiple wins or a VAC ban. You can participate even if you don't have any SteamGifts wins, see the "Have already completed all your wins?" below as it applies to this scenario too.



Extra Rules:

  1. No comment on this thread? If there is something wrong with the game you submitted it gets deleted. With this many participants we can't chase after everyone.
  2. No comment on this thread = not invited to join/re-join the group.
  3. Any idle time (e.g. idleing for cards, answering the phone/door, looking up solutions, etc..while the game is still running) needs to be added to the time before the month. We want to have times that are as "clean" as possible for the leaderboard. Any time that is higher than 2x HLTB time will be considered as abnormally high and will raise questions.
  4. If we ask for proof that a game fits a certain category, please link the appropriate proof (e.g. screenshots, explanation, videos, etc.) in the notes section of the game entry on the event page. Same goes for the ending screenshots for games without achievements.
  5. DLC: I've won/bought a story DLC, can I (re-)play the game? If the DLC has achievements go ahead. If it has an ending achievement reaching that is enough. If there is no ending achievement you will need to complete all DLC achievements for it to count. If you have more than one story DLC then you can play each one as separate entry for different months as long as either the main game or DLC fits the theme. Please only add the main game to the event page and note in the notes section that you are going for DLC achievements.
  6. I've won a game bundle. Do I have to play all games for it to count? If the bundle gives you several games with different steam ID's feel free to play them one by one.
    If it gives you one bundle of games with one steam ID then it depends. Do they each have achievements of their own (including an ending achievement)? Then go ahead and play them separately. Though make a note in the notes section, so we know what to look for. Non achievement games or games that play continuously (e.g. all entries play through without an ending between them) are not allowed atm since we do not have a good way to track them separately.
  7. If my games does not have an ending/campaign what do I need to do for it to count as beaten? For this we have two different things you can pick from: either the average HLTB time or 25% achievements reached.
  8. The event officially opens at 00:00 UTC, any playtime/achivements before that won't be counted.

Theme for February

Long Story Short
Eye of the Tiger
The Smell of Burning Asphalt

If we only get 1 theme suggestion I will revive the second and third place runner up from last year.


Theme for March

Do you think you have a good idea for a theme for March? Leave it in the comments below. If there are not at least 3 suggestions I will take some of the previous runner ups for this month and put them in the poll next month and the one with the most votes will become March's theme.

Well I'll be damned, it really looks like Loki mask. I actually meant "The Mask" mask but I guess they also "inspired" by Loki it seems, and now thinking of it gives the power of shapeshifting it makes sense. Oh god never think of this. An enlightenment came after so many years.

Comment has been collapsed.

no you should be very proud of those 5 games done. I'm proud of everyone who gets a game done especially this early. My games are just so short because I wanted to get through as many as possible when this theme is so perfect that I'm purposely avoiding anything long. I think time is more impressive then my million games, look at eyeofarrow, only 1 game done but that was a 20 hour game. While I barely sneaked into top spot just because I'm bleeding completed games left and right

I see you've got some more games added. Good luck with those while you tackle that tropica

Thanks! I still wish I had the time to plow through more games, though. I've let my backlog get way out of hand! But 2-3 hours per day is about the most I can hope to spare right now.

My plan is to clear at least on campaign mission in Tropico every day (just trying to beat it - not going to 100% that beast in a month!), and then put in about an hour on something else. We'll see how it goes. Good luck with the rest of your backlog marathon!

yeah many of them are super short. I've said it alot, I don't want anyone to despair for not getting a lot done. I'm proud of everyone who gets even one game done. Sure I've done alot but i've also barely put any time into gaming. It's nothing compared to completing like Yakuza, thats 1 game but its such a massive game. Or multiple telltale like games which takes me like a week to beat as I feel mentally drained completing 1 episode a day

Congratz on the 2 you've done. How did you like that turnip boy?

3 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Oh yeah I get what you mean, each Yakuza I played I put in over 50 hours (Y0, Y5, Y7), fun games though. The earlier ones I can't remember how many hours as it was too long ago. I played several TT games, my favourite is easily Wolf Among Us. A few on the backlog but I need to be in the right mood to play them.

Turnip Boy wasn't too bad but it felt like it just started before it was over. I like 2D Zelda games so enjoyed what content there was though. I left a short review up to give my thoughts as I was actually looking forward to playing it:

https://steamcommunity.com/id/zpte/recommended/1205450/

Also, I play games on Game Pass and less so on PS4, so Steam games don't get as much attention these days. PAYWOSG helps to motivate me to play through some games though!

Replying, though it's probably gonna be just Golf With Your Friends, dunno if there's single player campaign or if it'll be the 10 hours requirement.

Sorry, what's the 10 hours requirement?

4 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

When there's a game without single player campaign or some mode where you can "beat the game", the requirement for counting as beaten for the event can be that you play the game for at least 10 hours. I have to play Golf With Your Friends as it's my only unplayed win, but I really don't know if it has a standalone single player mode of some kind. If not, I planned to go with the "play 10 hours" method.

At least, that's my knowledge from other events, where it applied to AI War 2; another player selected it as well and was given this reply by sam. I was hoping to figure out what would apply for Golf With Your Friends later on and ask for more instructions if needed.

Just FYI, Golf with your Friends does not have any campaign (or at least it didn’t when i last played). It only has multiplayer, and quick play where you can select a course and go through it alone.

4 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

Welp, I guess I'm kinda screwed because I found out as well that I can't play with my friends (ironic, right?) since there's no crossplay between Steam and Game Pass which is where they have it. I'll mention it in my submission and see what sam has to say.

Well it is either average HLTB time (which would be 13h for Golf With Your Friends) or 25% achievements (would be 17 for this game) for games without a campaign or ending.

Since it is your last unplayed win, if you really do not have anyone that you can play with and it is probably not much fun to play alone you can choose games from your backlog

In the end I managed to do 17 achievements for now and convinced a friend to get the game so I'll probably get to play with him as soon as we match our schedules. Also I would have sworn that I had thanked you for your help and clarifications regarding how it works for this kind of games, but it seems I didn't (I wonder if I didn't submit the comment...). I apologize for that, and hope you can excuse me for taking so long: thanks for your comments and work with the event :)

Inscryption:

Games where you choose between characters/games with character customization.

Don't want to spoil anything but you end up having to choose a character at the end of Act 2. You also get to change names after each run/death of Act 1. You also always get to change your deck and items.

Hope this is ok, I just want to finish the game.

If you are doing DLC's they either need to have an ending achivement or you have to get all achivements for the DLC eg completing it.

Well, since it's a truck simulator there isn't ending or ending achievement, so it seems I'll go for all. :)

KIDS - Games won in the first quarter of a year
No achievements, screenshots can be found here.

Northgard - Games where you can choose between characters. Games with character customization.
The game allows you to choose between clans where each have their own 'hero'.
The game also provides skill trees where you can choose between skills, so you essentially end up customizing your own 'build'.

Last month was incredibly stressful IRL and this month is not promising to be much better, but at least I have some more time so hopefully can play more at least. Decided to stick with the 'relaxing' theme to help with everything, and I also have an additional self-chosen theme in the selected games, as you can see. :P

Explanations for higher playing times in case they are needed.

The First Tree, 2-3 hours. I really took my time on the first run and definitely went over the two hour mark on that, but then I also played the whole game a second time to get the collectibles I had missed and the first chapter's easter egg took some time for me as well.
Lost Ember, 4-12 hours. Played this one really slowly as well, searching nooks and crannies for those collectibles. Also spent some time just admiring scenery and setting up for screenshots.
Paws and Soul, does not have HLTB time at all, but Let's Plays seem to have it at about 2 hours. I spent too much time trying to find collectibles and failed to find the secrets...
Spirit of the North, 5-8 hours. I was all the way up into Chapter 7 (essentially the last chapter) and when I noticed it was going to be MASSIVE pain to complete, I decided to go back a few chapters to search for the couple collectibles I had missed on first run. I did this because on that level you need to re-find all the collectible shamans you had found before in the game, and I really did not want to do that level twice.

So yeah, I took my sweet time with games more than usual and wanted to offer explanation why. I'm completely okay with times on the site being shaved down if need be.

Finished Tropico 4's main campaign! Took longer than I expected, especially the later missions. The last mission alone took me a good 6 hours to beat!

3 games left on my list, but I don't think I will have enough time this week to finish all of them. Frog Detective 2 is likely, but we'll see about Firewatch. Not enjoying Embr very much, so I might just abandon that one completely.

Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry - done!

First time participating in this event, so apologies if I'm doing anything wrong.
I don't have any wins so I'm playing with my regular backlog. Although it also fits with the romance and dating sim tags... :)
I already started playing yesterday, so I'll be sure to put down the few achievements I already got on the website.

Edits:
also added Murder By Numbers (>1 achievement done before)
and Yono and the Celestial Elephants (no achievements)

I'd like to continue the game I tried to finish last month. Hyperdimension Neptunia ReBirth3 V Generation. This time under the category: Games with >= 1 achiement since it already has some achievements before
edit: never mind looks like this falls in the >= 1 achievement done before since I just started last month.

I added Desert Child as a sports game because of the racing in it and Racing tag.

It's also about a character trying to start a new life, so I like how it fits with the theme's title.

I'll just have to get better at dodging the obstacles in the races if I hope to do any better than last time I tried this old win.

January will be no time month for me, so added only one game and probably I won't even finish

Wasteland - possibility to create character (at least I think) and you can swap toons. It is regular backlog, cause I won Wasteland 3 and I would like to play series from start. If it won't get accepted as different game than win, I will play it anyway.

My first Tales of game, and I think the first not turn based JRPG I played. Also I barely played any JRPG, so it's deep waters.
Overall it's pretty good, but I feel like it really overstays it's welcome length-wise. The combat system is super deep - it's not unapproachable, but definitely needs some time to get used to.

Tbh the dialogue is often cringeworthy. The dub is questionable, while skits have same voice actors do a lot better job. It's weird. I gave everyone silly costumes to make the awful deliveries better :D

I think it's impressive (and at the same time, horrible) is, how much grinding can be done in the game. Repeated farming of stat boosts, using skills make you use them for less "mana", hoarding and combining items is kind of a must - but at the same time you can get pretty solid control over what you want to fight, for what item.

The skill system still makes me dizzy, or short-circuit my brain. I just want to finish the game at this point, there is too much repetitive fighting between little story elements and sidequests for me. (I always try to explore everything, do all sidemissions while they are reasonable - and fight the monsters around me. I think this is the main reason that my gameplay time is so inflated: fights, and forgetting the game open because I got bored after the 15th fight. I think I'm around 40-50 hours in-game)

In a nutshell: really well-made game with lot of focused grind potential. Starts to run out of interesting new places and quests for me, but I'm very much at the end. I definitely will need a break from games like this, but got a lot more interested for other Tales of titles, and maybe for JRPGs in general. (Especially how Zestiria was said to have subpar dialogues, compared to other games)

Oh I never knew what i was doing about the damn stats from weapons and junk. It was more of hey look an achievement unlocked! Why idk what does it do idk. I hated trying to 100% the damn game because despite following the 100% guide I always ended up with different items which always confused me. Zestiria is still the only tales game I've done but from what I've heard the others are much better, if just as damn long. All those games are in the 100+ completion category

Oh and yeah there are better JRPGS out there that don't overstay their welcome, even with a new game+

Hello samwise,
Long time no see!

I've got some spare time and wish to play some of my wins this year.

I want to play VVVVVV (https://store.steampowered.com/app/70300/VVVVVV/)
in the category "Games with no achievements or >= 1 achievements done before"

I've just farmed some cards out of it but didn't actually played and want to at least beat it cause completion could be really hard.

Hello Samwise, I want to add two more games.

One I've played on holidays together with son and recently beaten - "Castle Crashers"
gets into "Games where you can choose between characters" category
e.g. Here is the guide how to find all game characters you could choose between to play.
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=137649405

Second is a bottom of my backlog. I've finished 1st game long time ago and want to play the sequel.
"DISTRAINT 2" gets into "Any unplayed backlog game, but you have to complete it" category

Accepted you into the group.

The only category I see that would fit would be the "any win, but you have to complete it", which should not be that difficult since HLTB says that people did it in 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 hours and looking at the achivements the hardest is probably to reach level 30.

Tag categories are solely for the tag,e.g. the game needs to have the specific tag to fit it. No achivements here means literally the game does not posses achievements and the other one is for games that you already started and have at least 1 achievement done.

Oh man, I thought I'd never finish Narita Boy! I almost gave up about 2/3 of the way in because of all the backtracking and switch hitting... and all the damn doorways/passages that are hidden in the midst of decorative set elements!
I really loved the story and the art. A real gem of a game that could use a little redesign in the mechanics department but is well worth playing.
I guess I can see now why less than 15% of players reached the end game achievement! Glad I made it but so so happy this was a win because I just can't imagine replaying it entirely to find the two damn secret rooms I missed for 3 achievements!

Framed Collection was ok. The mechanics are cool for a while but it gets repetitive fast. Also it's a buggy mess so i literally had to start over to get the completed achievement. Yay.

I had been looking forward to AER for a while but I kept putting it off. The story was a little too basic and very linear but damn, the world is beautiful to fly around and explore. I won't play it again but I'll definitely revisit just to soar in the skies.

Niche was just so much fun. I wasn't expecting to like it that much or to be moved by the story mode ending and finally getting my little tribe back to where it came from generations ago. I have major skepticism about that HLTB playing time because it took me a lot of tries to even get my tribe living past the first couple of islands but I guess since the world building is totally random, some people could have had it easier to get all the way home? Or maybe they just idled for cards I dunno.
It really did deserve that Education tag though. I learned more about genetics in 3 days than I have learned in all my bio classes :P

I loved loved Röki but I haaaaate that I missed out on two achievements I locked myself out of. On the other hand, I'll have to replay it again so I guess I'll wait for my niece to be a little bigger not to get too scared by some parts and we can play it together. I'm just going to have to work on my monster voices as it always ends up in masterpiece theatre when we play games with no spoken dialog :P
Great game. I highly recommend it.

Yes this is okay, as long as it fits the usual "not games which are like 95% done already" rule. Just remember to add the old playtime and achievements to the page.

Oldest 10% untouched wins
10% from total wins?

10% oldest untouched so all already played games don't count in this 10%. But to make it easier for Sam/Nin best select something which is also in the oldest 10% total wins or provide (if you have one) your BLAEO list where they can filter out the unfinished/beaten/completed games.

Any unplayed game (win or backlog) but you have to complete it (any game is okay here, even from backlog, but it needs to be completed for it to count)
completed as in 100% or just story?

100% of Achievements

what if it has no achievements? Or the game has DLC specific achievements but I don't own the DLC?
also, do we need "beaten/completed" distinction and if we do, does it have to be so vague?! sorry I meant to complain about it for a while now as it confuses me for I never know wheter it's "I've completed the game's main story but didn't get all achievements" or "I've beaten the game's main story but didn't get all achievements" seriously, is it just me beeing so dumb that I don't see the obvious difference between the two or is it simply ambiguous?! and now it's in the theme so I have to finally vent out!

How I see it:

Game has achievements - if I go through the main story line, but there are still achievements to open, I mark it as beaten. If I gain 100% of the achievements I mark it as completed. If I want to play the game some more, I play it.

Game has no achievements - if I played through the main story and there is no additional content, I mark it as completed. If the game offers in-game achievements or there is some extra chapter or alternative story line, I mark it as beaten to be sure to come back to it.

Completed means that you have basically seen everything the game has to offer. Beaten means that you have just scratched the surface of the story. But again, just my point of view.

Edit: As about the DLC question. If the game has DLC specific achievements and you don't own it you mark it as beaten after going through the story, because there is still more to see.

I think Kyrrelin has already explained the difference between Beaten and Completed so let me just add that for this particular subcategory the game must have achievements. Otherwise it would be way to difficult for Sam to check it's progress.

When I made the theme I didn't included backlog games in this as the main goal of this is that you play your wins. But Sam came up with the idea to extend this subcategory to backlog games for once as a little bonus.

That is a general question that gets asked quite a lot surprisingly. You can put it however you want, as long as you show proof that you beat the no achievements game you can choose completed or beaten.

Also good spotting that mistake. I let Sam know and she's fixed it

Hey Moony, for this requirement:
"Any unplayed game (win or backlog) but you have to complete it (any game is okay here, even from backlog, but it needs to be completed for it to count)"
Does this mean even if we have steam gift wins, we can complete a random game from our backlog instead?
If this counts, then I could play some gifts from elsewhere for this month!

Maybe I should change my name to moony. When you add the game to the site you will see 2 sections, 1 for backlog and 1 for wins. You can see people like moony and sam with lots of wins taking advantage of this rare opportunity to play their backlog and count. So people play your backlog while you got the chance

Does it have to be on steam? I have a massive backlog on other stores. Mostly Uplay and GOG...

I am afraid that for the purpose of PAGYWOSG challenge the game has to be on Steam, so Sam can check on the progress.

But you can play one game on Steam to participate and then games from your other backlog as a personal challenge.

it was stuff like time being super big. like 3 hours being 20 hours with no explanation (just attitude) and no way for it to be that long. you dont get 400+ hours unless you manage to screw up the timers. or like our actual 3 dude up there play super long games to completion

When Mouse was in charge the website was pretty new though, there were little problems here and there as I remember. Don't remember those guys. :D

Explanations are important for sure. Once I have doubled HLTB time but it was a puzzle game that I solved all by myself without any help. Yes I'm proud. :) However 3 hours long game being 20 hours has no explanation even if there was one. I guess cheaters want to be in top no matter what leader-board it is. :)

That's why we have the whole explanation for if your time is to long. Because it got out of hand. Even multiple attempts at a game doesnt have 3 turn into 20, multiple times. If you got an honest reason for times being long then no one cares, just explain.

Also well done on beating the game all on your own

If it was for achievement hunting I'd have understand, still too long though. Some games have achievements that you can only get one or two by playthrough. Usually they're VNs and you can skip scenes for the sake of achievements. I assume it wasn't even a VN in this case.

By the way, do you use AStats (on pagywosg) for checking participants' achievements to see if it was legit? Not sure if it's working without the one logs in the website though.

And thanks.

The person in question was also a member of PA. And while the PAGYWOSG website is pretty simple and doesn't log much, the PA website has a nice arsenal of tools (only accessible to admins) to see exactly what is going on with the games that people play. I can give you a 100% guarantee those playtimes were not legit at all.

Can't answer as to what Sam and Nin use at the moment since I don't run the event anymore, but I can say that I didn't really use Astats as I am not a fan of it. I had my own tools and ways. But generally after you have been checking peoples play times every day for 4+ years you learn to smell something is not right from 3 miles away. People are generally pretty bad at hiding this type of things (but you do get some from time to time where you do have to go dig deep to get the proof).

Sorry for wall of text number 2 of today :D

I always forget that PA has a website. I really should bookmark it (bookmarked it).
Well, even without tools, 15 hours a day already smells from afar. Being also a PA member seems to make the investigation easy. :)

About AStats, I always had a feeling about they look kinda shady but couldn't put my finger on it. If you know something about that, I might tend to delete my account right away. It's a cool tool but I don't like shady things.

This is not a wall, fence at best. :D

Just don't look to much into the site atm because currently there is one too many thing awaiting review because I haven't had the time to deep dive into some of them :D
Oh no, I know it still rings alarm bells when you see that regardless, just PA stats gave me the definitive proof that yea, it is idled and there is no way around it. I wont go into why/how publicly because, well, I don't wanna give people any ideas.

I don't know about anything shady no, but I have seen a lot of what I would class as incompetence I guess? And this is very case specific annoyance to me because of compiling required playtimes for PA (if you ever seen something that doesn't seem quite right please come yell at me as a lot of time I have to work with very little data): main/main+extra/completionist playtimes are usually very much off compared to something like HLTB. And you can't even see who submitted what playtime or how many people did (maybe you can if you are logged in?) so you can't even go and verify whats going with the calculation on unlike with HLTB.

I first wrote "smell bullshit from a mile away" but then I thought it might be a bit nicer to reword it :D

I will answer the other one tomorrow, its 2am, I am going to bed, good day/night!

It's nice to so many different stats from different places merge into one place, at least from my point of view since my stats are quite old. :)

Yes, I feel the incompetence too but at least it shows if there are any contradictions about achievements which could be useful as a proof I guess.

I think HLTB stats make compiling slow, it's probably the same with "Do you even play bro" too. I can report things of course though I only look at people's stats if I'm interested in a category, so far saw nothing suspicious. Still I don't understand why would anyone idle games. There are no extra rewards for the leaderboard if that's what they care, apparently not.

Well they're bullshit all right. :D

Always found astats a pain, mainly used it to see if games had a timer on it because hltb doesn't. Of course they don't either unless i truly believe everyone plays it for 0.3 hours to completion

Yeah no rewards for placing high on the board. Just pride, I know I worked hard in November to place top spot but that was just all for fun then being like must be top!!!! We want correct stats so we get a nice end of month stat to compare to last month

Actually Steam API should allow pulling stats from every public profile without login to some website but guess it's not so practical (probably it would be like a DDoS). I'd like to know how many people have that achievement rather than just percentage. AStats only shows the members. Though we don't have an alternative to it, I think.

I wish every "work" was enjoyable like that. :) (Congrats about that btw). Gaming is about fun, cheating makes it a chore and pulls all the fun from it. Some people never learn and make people miserable as they are.

steamhunters has it, but i'm not sure about the validity and all. i usually just check for hltb time and achievement rarity for these kinds of websites after all (and steamhunters entries are kinda hard to find with google search).

...one reboot later... will make sense if you read the end of the other message I just sent

Yep, it is handy for that for sure, but requires login to be able to update someones profile so I tend to just check everything manually. Its not that often that I need to go look that far into things anyways.

What do you mean exactly with compiling? The only thing I hate with HLTB is that games are not tied to Steam AppIDs nor you can query the game name directly into the URL which makes automation annoying. Oh and the fact that they don't wanna add Proton/Wine as a platform :( (I asked a couple of weeks ago and they where like "submit them under Windows", what about no, they are staying under Linux).

Oh no, I mean in case you ever see that any of the games you need to play for PA that the required playtime doesn't seem right to let me know so I can fix it :) Yea don't ask me. I get it for trading cards, but other than that, no clue.

I meant getting together all the data, for some reason it slows down other things. I'm guessing their API is a mess (if they have any).

At least they could use a more general name rather than "Windows". Maybe we need a more Steam-oriented HLTB website, that would be cool.

That hasn't happened to me yet and HLTB times are usually correct. That's related to the game's popularity, if there are only 4 reports, you can be sure it'll be much different. Or if it's bombarded by die-hard fans, expecting a less playtime would be wise. :)

God I wish they actually had an API. Nope, gotta manually get all the data... There was at some point some addon that linked the Steam AppIDs with the HLTB game ID so you could kinda automate it (not all games were linked) and grabbed you the playtime information (but only in hours without minutes for some reason) and then Reforced somehow feed that data into the PA site but it doesn't work anymore (not sure where exactly it broke).

Funny thing they actually don't have a category for "Windows" (even tho they told me to use it). They only have a category for "PC", "Linux", "Mac". Makes literally 0 sense, but they don't seem to be willing to fix that mess.
There is Completionist.me but it seems to be more achievement based and they only show playtime for completions (no main story/main story+extra) and those times are grabbed automatically and not even checked from the looks of it so it is not fantastic.
Yup, was thinking about the same thing a while back. Then I remembered I been building a website from scratch for the past 6 months which has been eating a lot of my time and threw that idea in the trash.

Yea accuracy depends a lot on the type of games you play. I am a fan of weird, small puzzle games nobody ever heard of and those usually don't even listed on HLTB most of the time.

It's probably HLTB's fault, it isn't working on "Do you even play, bro?" for quite some time too. By the way, I came upon this while searching, someone made an API for HLTB apparently, could be useful.

Yeah, people mean Windows while saying PC is still a problem. Especially geek-wannabes do this mistake a lot.

That website looked good enough at first and then I checked Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, which is I'm currently playing, and noticed 2 guys have 100% achievements with 1 minute playing. Not so useful for HLTB purposes, still it could give a general idea though.

Never saw a game without a playtime on HLTB myself but saw a lot of them with only 3-4 reports which is not healthy, especially when one of them is a 120 hours maniac. Why would someone do this to a 15 hours game I don't understand. There should be a way to get correct playtimes but it's hard. You cannot trust a person, you cannot trust a one's Steam playtime either. This needs a serious algorithm.

Yeah, building from scratch always consumes too much time. It's fun in the end but also a classic programmer's dilemma. Still worth the dopamine I guess. :D

Hmmm I wonder if this is what Reforced used and he just explained it weirdly to me what the site does or he used something else (I don't have access to the code). Regardless I will send this to him to see if it can be implemented, thank you for sharing!

Yup, agreed.

Yea I am not sure if those 1m times are cheated or just private playtimes. Either way they probably shouldn't be showing up.

Yup, but sadly the only way to get the playtimes more accurate is for people to submit more playtimes to weird ones get evened out. I also try and report anything that I randomly come across that is literally impossible and they are thankfully really good at removing those (so far they were all gone within a day or 2).

It also makes you lose your sanity a little :D

You're welcome. Could be it, since I couldn't find another. If not, I hope that will be useful. Though it doesn't have debug codes I guess, that could be a problem if something goes wrong.

I don't think those 1m playtimes are private, because when a profile is private it cannot get achievements too.

I was kinda afraid that you would say some thing like "statistically corrected" because it needs way more entries to be actually useful, many games have enough entries anyway. I guess we don't have a better way yet. I still think a better algorithm could be implemented though.

Be careful about your sanity. :P

I forwarded it to Reforced, haven't gotten an answer yet, but hopefully it works because that would save me about 30 sec of time per game I need to update the playtime for.

You can actually have private playtime and public achievements. All you need to do is to put your games to public but your total playtimes to private. Don't ask me where is the logic in that, you will have to ask valve.

Oh that sanity is long gone. I had 3 years of Java in high school :D

There is a lot of questionable stuff about their privacy settings. There was a bug a while back that if your games/playtime were private it would tell all your friends at the beginning of each CS:GO round (so every ~2minutes) that you are infact playing CS:GO lol. Also they constantly break your wishlist visibility if you have something set to private. Valve being Valve :D

Where I am at you can decide to go to a technical school and get a degree in high school already (can be anything, IT, nursing, economy, cooking, auto mechanic, wood working, cosmetology,...) so I did just so and went to an IT one so my classes were probably about 50% general subjects 50% IT related subjects. Funny thing is I went to study IT in college afterwards and I swear to god high school was way harder (to be fair I did the "lowest" level of college we have here that only takes 2 years but still). Main difference was that I had C# instead of Java, but I would take Java over C# any time of the day. I haven't touched Java since HS, but I really didn't mind it that much. But I am also one of those weird people who like PHP :D
And nothing will ever be as close to shit to me as X++ was. You literally can't pay me enough to go back working anywhere close to anything even remotely related to Microsoft Dynamics AX.

Haven't heard of that but seems funny. :D Though seems like it was intentional. :P

That's a nice system, it used to be somewhat similar to that here too but sadly it's long gone and education is a giant mess here. I have no idea how they manage to devastate it even more when they introduced something new it's beyond any reason. So I kinda envy you.

C#

Ah yes, the infamous Microsoft Java. :D

I'm currently learning C/C++ but I'm kinda on hold for a while, since I started to develop a game and GML is much more easy. Though with liking PHP, I give you that you are weird. :D Maybe you have a knack though, in that case you're lucky.

GML? I know GMS but never heard of GML. Good luck with that! I am kinda curious what kind of game it is if you are wiling to share more :)

It's the same actually, it's GMS's language, Game Maker Language (GML), very simple naming. They didn't go for something fancy. :)

Well, that's kinda long story but I can share of course, at least a short version. :3
Normally my main project is 2D action RPG game (similar to Diablo at some point), closest game on the market is CrossCode, maybe old Ys games. But not a pixel based game, all hand-drawing assets (there is also a surprise part but that's a surprise :D ). However I needed some experience before that, so I started to make a 2D platformer instead. Still hand-drawing assets and kinda old school animation (not as old school as Cuphead). I have two strong attributes, drawing and writing. I thought why not a third one (programming) so I started all this. I still need a composer but I have a friend for that. Everyone says I'm too slow about everything but that's just who I am, artists (should) have all the time. :P
I mean I need money especially these days but I don't want to release a half-ass game, that's not me. Also I don't want to make porn games for quick money. I hope I won't need to do that. :D

I'm still not exactly sure about the genre, so cannot say metroidvania or something else, but I have a story, I have a depressed environment, creating that's harder than I thought by the way. Story starts with a demolition of a country and a suicide attempt (main character), there is a twist with that of course, and vengeance turns into a sacrifice in the end. Basically this. If I finish at least the half of it, I'm thinking about a Steam page but there is still time for that apparently.

Ahhh gotcha! GMS is one of those things that I own, wanna give it a go, but never got around to even look at.

I mean I need money especially these days but I don't want to release a half-ass game, that's not me.
I am not sure how far along it is, but Early Access is always a thing if needed.

Thank you for sharing! I can only wish you good luck with the project(s), I hope it will all turn out great and how you imagine it to be or even better :)

Since you owned GMS2 before they switched to subscription-based, you're free to use it (until GMS3 more likely). At least they didn't charge previous owners, well kinda. I was thinking about switching to Godot for a while to be fair but there is a saying here, don't swap horses while you're passing the bridge, so it's the same situation. :)

I thought about early-access but at least not for the first game.

Thank you too. :3 I hope I manage what I imagine.

I am not even sure anymore if I own the first one or the 2nd one, I got it so many years ago. God I hate using anything that is subscription based and I refuse to pay for it out of principle. Let me buy the thing outright godamit, but I guess they get more money out of people that way, gahh.
Yea would kinda suck switching in the middle of a project and having to redo a bunch of stuff.

Fair enough, just came to my mind :)

I don't like subscription-based programs either but it happened after Opera acquired YoYo Games, they even tried to flex subscription-based features on users but after a protest they pulled it back, for now. Even Unity is free to use, I don't know what they're trying to do. I mean it's a nice piece of software but come on, Godot is entirely free and open source. Even HeartBeast switched to Godot after so many years with GMS. That's what I will do eventually too but yeah, not now.

If it was many years ago, it's probably GMS 1.4 that came with Humble Bundle. :)

Question, I have a few wins that don't seem to really have an ending or the only achievements are gotten by 1% of the people who played it. Is there like a 25% rule or 10 hour rule? Because I'd love to get them out of my backlog but I just don't know how to "beat" them.

if they don't have an ending you can either try for 25% achivements or HLTB time, whatever comes first.

Honestly with this current theme nearly every game is an option shrug
And if you can't decide maybe use https://www.lorenzostanco.com/lab/steam/ and just sort according to tags. Then decide which of your wins you want to play.

Or another thing I do is deciding on maybe 5 games I want to try next and then see if I can fit them into the theme

This is actually what i have been doing as well. If it fits, just put it in, and if it isn't just let it be. Most of the games that i played usually fit some category for the month.

that's awesome! Sucks I only learn about it now!~

deciding on maybe 5 games I want to try next and then see if I can fit them into the theme

Yeah, that's usually what I do as well but there are layers to it. As one of the devs for Civ IV said "players will optimize the fun out of a game". And that's sort of what I got into here. Given I now try to do it regularly I also look into the future when choosing a game. It's pretty easy to predict the next theme - in a first few hours of the event going live one option will already gather significantly more votes than the others and it's typically the one to win (like Long Story Short will win for February I voted for Eye Of The Tiger if anyone cares). So I look at those games and see that one fits both this and next months theme so I'll likely pass on it this month to play the other. Then there's the issue of Time to beat - I have to anticipate how much time the following month I could dedicate to that game and cross validate with HLTB if it'll even be possible to finish in whatever time I could allocate! Another consideration is the issue of the game's "beatability" - I generally speaking suck at games so often I'd really like to play a game, it fit's the theme and it should be finishable in the time I have but I might require a certain ammount of skill to complete and I'm just worried I'd end up pushing it past my allocated time (potentially jeopardising some "real life" stuff) or simply blowing the event and then feeling bad with myself that I could have chosen something easier and actually get it done instead of wasting all that time on a futile effort. And last but not least I look at the proveability of the game's "beaten" status - i.e. wheteher is has an obvious "finished the game" achievement or not. Usually with all these I can narrow it down to "a choice" but with this month's theme beeing so open there was just so many possibilities and so many variables that I literally had to force myslef to stop "choosing" and do something "productive" especially given January and possibly February beeing very busy for me!

If you have difficulties you can always ask and we can help you find something, but as sam wrote, this month that shouldn't be that difficult.

I had a quick look at your latest 25 wins (without checking which you already played) and for at least 10 of them I directly see a fitting subcategory.

99Vidas: Games won in the first quarter of a year
Karakuri-kun: A Japanese Tale: Tag Education
STAY COOL, KOBAYASHI-SAN!: A RIVER CITY RANSOM STORY: Games where you can choose between characters
Work Trip: Tag Nature
Starward Rogue: Tag Difficult
Sakura Agent: Tag Dating Sim
Hollow Knight: Tag Difficult
Table Manners: Physics-Based Dating Game: Tag Dating Sim
HERO DEFENSE: Tag Difficult
Warhammer: Chaosbane: Games with character customization (Has the Tag Character Customization)

Warhammer: Chaosbane: Games with character customization (Has the Tag Character Customization)

man, I did it for I think June. had such a high hopes for the game - universe I love in a genre that I love. And it even started so great! Then somewhere about halfway through the campaign all the flaws and cut corners were getting so glaringly obvious and and top of that constant gamebreaking bugs started creeping up every 20 mins of gameplay or so. That was a painfull experience ;(

What's an untouched game? Does it count as untouched if I have idle time on it?

Games with no achievements or >= 1 achievements done before

Also I have a hard time understanding this one. Is it "no achievements" or "no achievements done before"? And if it has achievements I should have at least one achievement done, right?

4 months ago
Permalink

Comment has been collapsed.

considering its for the achievements part of 100%, untouched would be no achievements unlocked yet. Typically you get an achievement early on so they would typically be untouched. Idle time doesn't matter just put them in the stats

no achievements = you can't possible get achievements as not implemented
Other part is for games you've played before, gained some achievements but happened to drop it/not finish it at some point. But yeah at least 1 done before this event

Well if it is clearly idle time, e. g. you have time on it but haven't gotten any achievements yet then that's fine, though we would prefer games that literally haven't been touched yet to make it easier.

And no achievements means games that don't have any achievements.
And the other one is have at least 1 achievement already done, e. g. unfinished games.

And generally you can add any unplayed games with achievements (as long as you are completing them eg getting all the achievements).

This months theme is very broad

A little bug report.

For American Truck Simulator, "stats before the start of the event" part shows I had 119 achievements before the event (it was 17 I guess), anyway because of this now I have -94 achievements. :)

not really a bug, if you have stats before the event you should add them yourself, since the algorithm does not do this automatically.
Normally we check them manually but it m ight have slipped through the cracks.

Also you can change that any time yourself. Just edit it correctly.

Didn't know we could change those and I thought it was automated (hence the fake bug report). So that means you always manually added them! Huge sorry about that!
