Resync request

I'd like to request a complete resync for my Steam profile to clear out some games that no longer exist or some others that are improperly tracking achievements I've never completed.

Thank you!

Any chance that you integrate a 'perform complete resync' feature into this site? I would also like to resync my games, since I deleted a game from Google Play, but some of its archievements are still showing up on this site, thus reducing my overall completion percentage. I think this would be a very handy feature!

I've just run a resync for you. I will consider adding it as a user option, only issue is that there's no verification on GP accounts currently. Ideally we would only allow this on verified accounts as allowing anyone to run a full resync could create some issues. I will see if I can use the Google sign in feature to identify GP accounts, like we do with Steam and Xbox.

Maybe could just have the existing re-sync tool remove the game then attempt to re-add if it still exists, instead of requiring a full re-sync of the account? Should also save on server workload.

Great. Thanks a lot!
I guess you are doing incremental updates when running a manual sync, right now? Maybe it would be enough to check, for each game, if it still exists and if not delete it. Otherwise just perform the update as usual.

The manual sync is supposed to do a full sync, but Google Play works different from the others in that to get the full list of games we actually need to parse through all the achievements. For users with a lot of achievements, this can take awhile. They do have a games only feed, however I've noticed stuff drops off of it after a certain period of time (don't know the exact cutoff point, seems to be around 6-8 months). Anyway we use that feed for the manual updates, but since it doesn't give the full history it can't be used to check which games have been removed. Grabbing all the achievements is only done on the initial scan.

Maybe adding an option that lets users selectively resync games would be the way to go. That way we don't need to go through a user's entire achievement list just to find which games have been removed.

I'd like to request a resync of my steam profile, I have been resetting all the illegitimate achievements but some I've added in my emo phase and I have zero idea if there are any left, I'm just going by if there are more than one added in the same minute and such
I don't know if it will give legitimacy again or not, or if this is even the right thread for it, but I want the resync anyway just to keep track of the achievements!

So it's already supposed to completely re-sync any games specifically listed in the box using the AppID? I just tried on a game I reset the achievements for and it didn't work.

Done.

No, it doesn't currently. That option to scan specific AppIDs is mainly so we can pick up games that have been played through family sharing on Steam (as these don't show up in the owned games list on a user's profile).
