Welcome to the RetroAchievements documentation!
First of all, you must know the RetroAchievements Manifesto and adhere to the User's Code of Conduct.
If you're looking for docs about creating achievements, check our Developer docs section.
We encourage all community members to join our Discord Server; we use this for most communication.
The complete list of pages is on the sidebar, but here's a brief description of some of them:
FAQ: the Frequently Asked Questions (like which RetroArch core should I use?).
Global Leaderboard and Achievement Hunting Rules: explains the rules for the Global Leaderboard, what the Untracked status is, what can be considered cheating, etc.
Downloads: our alternative downloads page.
Free Games: games that are completely and legally free to download and play on your emulators.
Events: learn about the various community events that take place at RetroAchievements.
My game is not loading achievements: what you have to do when your game isn't loading achievements.
Why you shouldn't use the load state feature: why you should expect to have issues if you use save/load state while playing.
A message for Achievement Hunters and Completionists about revisions: why you shouldn't be frustrated when a revision on an achievement set is made.
How to contribute if you are not a developer: if you don't know how to develop achievements, there are many other ways to contribute with the community.
You can help to improve these docs by editing/creating the pages at RetroAchievements wiki.
