Welcome to the RetroAchievements documentation!

The docs are currently under heavy construction so be sure to check back often! Each section appears in the sidebar, but here is a brief explanation of the categories:

  • Guidelines: Details community, user/player, developer, and content policies.
  • General: FAQ, getting started, support/troubleshooting, and other info that can be useful to all members of the community.
  • Achievement Development: Extensive information on both the conceptual and technical aspects of making achievements.

We encourage all community members to join our Discord Server; we use this for most communication.
