Yes another game service on the landscape. Any thoughts on if it will be a possibility?
| +1 |
I am not using android games. So i would love to see this not to get prioritized :P

However, people who do would love it to be added.
So i DO support this :D

there isn't a page where you can see which achievements you unlocked, just a page where you can view what apps have access to google+.

Is it something on the way?

Short answer: No, as at this moment this cannot be done.

Longer answer: In order for it to be included in metagamerscore it requies the service to have a API available for MGS to use. Often times the service will have a way to display the profile and achievements on a browser.

Pretty much this, as of now Google has hidden the user achievements in the Google Play Games app (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.play.games) and can only been seen in there.

Woah, awesome find! That just made my day!


Edit: Hmm.. Maybe I'm missing something - but I think this api is just for getting achievements for your own game if you are a game-developer.

Hey primal_r I think Google Play achievements is possible:
Using the Google Play Achievements app on android you can find achievement info for any player that has set his profile for public on the platform. A tracker would only be possible with a bot I presume. Leaderboard information is only possible in app though(which would require a ton of work I think)



Also:

There's retroachievements which lets you get achievements on old games. They have a supported emulator called RetroArch which is also avaible for android.


This means that you can get achievements from that platform on android! Not on google play though :/

For retroachievements:

For Android, I've just been waiting to see if I get an official answer from them regarding if they are ok with me adding support. Leaderboards are not needed, since metagamerscore generates it's own leaderboards.

Any progress on Android answer? Might actually play some mobile games if this happens lol

Hi all. Got an update in regards to Google Play Achievements.
In the thread relating to EA Origin's & their Achievements, there's a link to Exophase, which has the tracking capabilities of Origin Achievements.

As I was taking a look through the site, I came across this page: https://www.exophase.com/platform/android/

The link above lists all the Google Play Games with Achievements that are trackable on Exophase. Thought I'd give this old thread an update in regards to this. Hopefully now, Google Play Achievement tracking on MetaGamerScore can be moved from "Impossible" to "Possible".

Wonder if it's worth someone being cheeky and asking how they did it? For this and Origin?

This comment here. If anyone is on Exophase, be sure to ask how they did the scanning for Google Play & Origin. It would probably be helpful.
| +3 |
Origin is reasonably straightforward, I've done it on my laptop. It just requires some tools that are not in MGS' current tech stack (namely, a headless browser).

Google Play, apparently all we need is to find out which URLs the Play Games app talks to. I've tried a bunch of different apps (proxies, network traffic sniffers), only to learn that Android apps by default don't follow the user's proxy configuration. Which means that all communication with the server remained invisible to me.
There's still hope to override this behavior, though, as soon as I get my hands on a rooted device.

Have you tried using an emulator?

Hm, like the one you install alongside the IDE? Didn't think of that, to be honest. I shall look into that option. Thanks for the tip.

I think GooglePlay have now changed some of their system so it can be linked up through the API?

I really want the achievements from GooglePlay on here especially now we're getting STADIA from them!




The only question regarding STADIA is if it will have Google Play Achievements or not. Was there anything announced about that?
| 0 |
What do you mean, did anything change?

Just as an aside, I've got radio silence from Exophase (unsurprisngly!). They've obviously well and truly cracked the code though - https://www.exophase.com/platform/android/?sort=players

Wow, would be great.
| +1 |
Could always hit up the Exophase dev on Discord and ask directly. Glancing at the currently online people in the 100Pals group, both the dev and primal are on and in the tracker devs group.
| +1 |
I just noticed that they have uPlay support, too. Not gonna lie, that’d be pretty cool to have. A huge, triple-service mega-update, perhaps?
| 0 |
exophase doesn't verify some of the platforms though...
| 0 |
If I remember correctly you should be able to open up the page where exophase checks your account and open up the script in your web browser and see how it does check, and if I were a betting man I'd say at the very worst you would need to open their JavaScript file since I doubt they did it in css or http, and then seeing as how you can't copyright code, you possibly could either copy and paste their code, or download there tools off of the raw vide text. But that's just my idea on how to find it out.
| 0 |
I mean, you COULD. Whether or not it’s a good choice is a different story.
| 0 |
The odds that these kinds of operations are being done through client-side Javascript are extremely low. Have you actually looked for yourself and seen that this is the case?

| 0 |
Fair point - it would be rare. I haven’t tried it myself but, even if it was available, let alone possible, would it be a good choice or not? I mean, sure it’d be a quick fix, but...

Edit: I would check for it, but I have no idea what to actually look for. I mean, yeah, I’m a tech-type guy, but scripting/coding/whatever-you-wanna-call-it isn’t exactly my forte.

It can be done by username. I just did it on exophase.com




It's more complicated than that. The actual tracking takes a fair bit of work to get functioning. x3sphere (Exophase dev) said it took him a couple months to figure out a way to do it. As of the last time this was brought up, X3sphere said he'd talk to Primal about getting it working here. So it's just a matter of time.
| 0 |
I realised that after I posted my comment. I'm just happy it can be done, even if it is hard to do, it's still possible.

With bluestacks 5 linked to mgs with google play would defenetly boost up those points measueres

I would like to see google play achievements on this site since I just moved from exophase due to a lack of kongregate achievements
| +1 |
Any updates on this?
| +1 |
Me and Chrimle had another go at it an evening a month or so ago, but didn't get anywhere.

TLDR: No updates.

i was just about to ask the same thing!

just bought a new tablet for my google play achievements hope you guys figure out some time in the future but I understand if you guys cant, its not a easy procedure :)
| 0 |
I stopped using metagamerscore as my main achievement tracking platform in favor of exophase but I still regularly use kongregate so I really wanna know if theres any new info on this? It's been a while
| +1 |
Yeah sadly it seems all their API's are closed unless you are whitelisted. And it seems impossible to get a hold of the correct person to get whitelisted.

Feel free to attempt to contact google in this subject and have them reach out to us. I'm pretty good at coding stuff but I'm not very skilled at finding methods to contact the right people at big companies; so anyone can help out with that part.

For getting Google Play achievements one should log on to Google plus account while both have to be same..
