    I was having trouble getting a game to earn achievements, so I went through the process of updating all my cores, RetroArch, and EmulationStation today. The latest versions (listed above) now seem to cause a ridiculously long wait time before finally logging into RetroAchievements. Has anybody else noticed this? Is there something I can do or need to adjust to make it log in quicker? I typically load a game up and before the game starts I bring up RetroArch menu to see what achievements I have/need. Now when I do it, it just says "No Achievements" unless I wait almost 3 minutes. Then it lets me see them. It's annoying for sure. It never did this before. I'm hoping it's just a problem on RetroAchievement's server and not related to the new updates.


  • The retroachievements site itself was extremely slow today. Maybe it's the reason ;)

    I think every RA user that is trying to use it since yesterday is noticing it. In any platform. It has nothing to do with RetroArch or RetroPie. It's a problem with RA server.

    I hope that it isn't you using my hascheevos tool again... :-)

    I think Scott is the only person in the whole world able to make something for it...


  • Good to know it's not just me, and not necessarily related to me updating RetroArch.

    @meleu - I haven't rescraped since the first time. I was going to wait and see what you came up with for a more permanent and professional looking (menu) solution.
