Walkthroughs and Server Maintenance

By Rich Stone, 8 years ago
Yo TA'ers!

We've been working for some time on providing you with full game walkthroughs rather than "just" achievement solutions.

Thanks to a lot of hard work by Tasty Pastry and his merry band of walkthrough writers, we now have 11 published game walkthroughs on the site.

You can find these in many ways - there's a list of the most recently published walkthroughs on the home page, and there's also Walkthroughs which is linked in the Site Pages menu. From this page you can see that there's another 50 or so walkthroughs in progress!

As well as that, any game that has a walkthrough has a link to it on the game's page, and any achievement that is contained in a walkthrough will also have a link to the full game walkthrough for that achievement.

On the front page of each walkthrough, you will find summary information about the length of time it takes, the number of playthroughs required, if there are any online only or unobtainable achievements, and a whole host of other stuff.

We want this to be a big feature of the site, so if you would like to write a walkthrough for a game, please post in here: Volunteer to write a walkthrough

I've also done some work on the Gaming Sessions page to give you some more viewing/filtering options. There will be more work done on this page as we approach November which will be Viral Month - more on this to come soon.

Also, I have received some annoying news from my server hosts, they will be shutting power down for a massive 8 hours on a Sunday morning in October UK time (this will be Saturday evening US time) to replace the power lines to the building. I've complained as much as I can but there appears to be nothing I can do to prevent it from happening. That means the site will be down for this entire period - it will occur between 00:00 and 08:00 on 2nd October BST. Aplogies for this, there's not much I can do about it.

Cheers guys!
