Welcome to the RetroAchievements documentation!
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:
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.
