UPDATE: we now have a documentation site:

Hello fellows!

I'm trying to start my journey to achievements development but I realized that all the guides/tutorials/tricks/tips are a bit scattered through several forum posts... Then I'm trying to start a documentation project where all developers can contribute with what they know.

I got Scott's blessing and he created a github repo for the docs and gave me access to manage it.

Just to start with something I used the 's guide from this post here:

Here you can see how it looks like currently (just as a teaser. I'll try to add more info soon):

Now I would like to invite all cheevos developers who has something to share to post their guides/tutorials here:

You guys will need:

- a github account

- know how to use markdown formatting (quick overview here:

- create/edit wiki pages here: (some more info about wiki formatting here:

Note: the conversion from the wiki to those neat-looking pages isn't automatic. I need to do it myself. I'll try to convert them as soon as I check that the info on the wiki is accurate (as I am not an experienced cheevos dev, and/or other guys will help me with it).

I have joined this community recently and believe this is seriously needed. I would love to start contributing to development but was unsure as where to start.

Great will be very useful!

Meleu, can you cover the Rich Presence and the Leaderboard "I don't know use it, RP I just learned yesterday" :)

I think that I saw a 's topic mapping symbols (emojis or symbols) to use with RP. I've been using to find some but it not safe because has alot Unicode that not work on some devices, maybe we need create a default table for everyone who wants to use it easily.

I found this sites : - shows what currently doesn't work on Android. - Scott post this, safe to use. - easy to find sets but not safe too.
