It's apparently impossible to manually add a game twice. I have Valkyria Chronicles (PC) on my list (added manually, since I played it on my old Steam account), tried to add Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) and it just brings the PC version to the top of the list. Still, the platform is different for each entry, so it should treat each one as a different game.

Currently the database is setup to only allow one game ID entry per user, and the issue is that a lot of the manually added games share the same game ID across platforms. So I'll need to make some changes to allow adding multiple entries. I'll post an update when it's fixed.

To clarify, are you wanting all Newsgrounds games in the database? I will see if there's an easy way of importing those. Most of the non-tracked games are imported from GiantBomb's database, but doesn't seem they have those listed.
I just want to have your Newgrounds Account to be Linkable

You can add the same game across multiple platforms now. It was sort of a significant change on the database side so let me know if you notice any issues.

With the release of Age of Empires: Definitive Edition on Steam today, Microsoft announced that Microsot Store version owners have to re-donwload a new version of the app to enable cross-play with Steam (https://forums.ageofempires.com/t/upgrading-to-the-latest-age-of-empires-definitive-edition-windows-store/50693). So now there are two versions of the Microsoft Store AoE: DE, the former UWP one (this one : https://www.exophase.com/game/age-of-empires-definitive-edition-xbox/achievements) and the new Win32 one which has cross-play with Steam (this one : https://www.exophase.com/game/age-of-empires-definitive-edition-xbox-2/achievements/). Both are still playable and so every owner of the Microsoft Store version will have a duplicate set of achievements in their Xbox account... (This is a very ba move from Microsoft imho)

I don't know how you should treat a case like that (since the duplicate is not on Exophase side but on the Xbox account), but maybe consider at least renaming both versions to clarify the situation?

Thanks!

I renamed the new one to Age of Empires Definitive Edition (Steam Cross Play).

Thanks! Since the new one is supposed to become the standard one (i.e. new owners will only have access to this one & former owners are strongly encouraged to switch to this version), maybe you could consider renaming it simply to Age of Empires: Definitive Edition and link its page to the Steam version’s page, and renaming the former one with something like (former UWP version) or (non-crossplay version)? Or at least consider doing it in a few weeks when most current players will have switched to the new version?

Makes sense, I renamed the old one to Age of Empires: Definitive Edition (UWP Version) instead and set the original title back on the new.

Are you saying to link the new one to the Steam listing here? https://www.exophase.com/game/age-of-empires-definitive-edition-steam/achievements/

The issue with that is wouldn't people that only have access to the MS Store version not be able to get the achievements on Steam, even though it's cross play?

or do you automatically get the game on Steam as well... still though if they launch it from the MS Store I'm not sure they would get Steam achievements. It seems best to keep both listings up, you could always hide the duplicate one from your list if having both listed is an issue

Edit: If you meant the "Also on" link, I updated that.

Thank you !
Yeah, I meant the "Also on" link, sorry for being unclear. We don't actually get the game on Steam as well. But maybe those who buy it on Steam will have both Steam and Xbox achievements? (since they can connect to their Xbox account, a bit like the GTA V unlocks both Steam and ROckstar Social Club achievements)
