Should be fixed now. We were running out of the room on the page so I added some styling to push the tabs down on another line if there are over 4 services linked.

This is absolutely great, and manages to scratch the itch for retro challenges. However, when I try and add to my gamer card, I receive this message:

Retro information could not be retrieved. This may be due to privacy settings on your account.

Any idea?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Yes same username-ish JoeBoy1986

I applaud you if you can figure this one out.
You should be able to add it now, the issue was you had no achievements earned yet so was accidentally marking your profile as private. Anyway, it's fixed now.

Looks great guys! We should announce this on RA, get some more traffic your way, this is a really great integration :) nice work!
Thanks :) That would be great!

Guys you are utterly hammering RA at the mo - is there any chance you could reduce this please? 40gb in 2 days is quite a lot, let alone since 28th :(
Sorry, I made some adjustments to the scanning frequency. Let me know if it's improved.

I recently tried RA and wow it's great there are all the games of my childhood!

Anyway I've just completed 3 achievements but it's not showing them, I use exophase more like a personal app to track my progess rather than competing against people so it doesn't really matter... anyway I'm curious maybe it's a privacy setting in RA?

Not sure, it seems to be showing now. There will be a bit of delay before the achievements show on here vs RA. Usually about an hour or two, with how I have the scanner configured at the moment.
