My Game Collection Version 2.0

By Rich Stone,
Last week we brought you the brand new My Game Collection feature and asked for your feedback on how we could make it better.

As usual, you did not disappoint!

So we're back today with an update that brings much of what you wanted, plus some of our own ideas to make it even better:

Multi-selectable options
We've added the ability for you to select multiple Platforms, Play statuses and Ownership statuses.

Multi select filters in both viewsMulti select filters in both views

We've also added new filters for whether you have made any notes on the game and the title type (so you can exclude apps), and saving your settings will now save your filter settings too!

Gamer comparison
We've added something very cool to the image view - you can now add multiple gamers to compare your collection with!

Simply type in the name of the GamerTag(s) you want to compare to (your friends will appear first in the list). You can compare with up to 5 other gamers if you have a TrueAchievements Pro Account, or a single gamer if you don't have Pro.

You'll then see a mini-leaderboard on all of the games in the image view, with the highest scorer at the top. Those that haven't started the game appear beneath with their ownership status:

You can even filter to show only the games you all have in your collections, or just the ones you've all started!

Quick search
You can now type a game title into the quick search box to return matching games - please note, your existing filters are also used for this search.

Multi-edit mode
One of the most requested new features was for a way to edit the Ownership, Media or Play status of more than one game at a time.

You can now choose to switch to Multi-edit mode (in the filter dropdown button). This will add checkboxes to the list view in place of the edit button, and also allow you to click on the box art in image view. Then click the Edit values button at the top to change the values for all the selected games at once.

Game collection panel on your homepage
You have a new Game Collection panel on your homepage, showing the number of games you have played and have in your collection for each platform:

As ever, homepage elements can be removed on your Customize Homepage page.

Export collection
TrueAchievements Pro Account holders can now download their entire game collection as a csv file. Just click the download icon on the filter dropdown.

Other small bits
We've added some visible feedback that the list is reloading, and we've also added some new statuses:

- Games with Gold
- On hold
- Backlog

We've also added a total bar on the List view so you can see the totals for all games that match your filter settings.

Pro accounts
One final quick for Pro Accounts - if you haven't got one, there's no better time to get one with our buy 3 years get 1 free offer - click here for more details.

I want to thank you all for your awesome feedback that's helped us to make this cool feature even better!

Yo! Rich here - I was the one that created TrueAchievements back in 2008 as I felt the Xbox Gamerscore system could be improved. The site has evolved massively since then and it's now the biggest and best Xbox community on the planet! Racing games and open world shooters are my thing, but I'll give most genres a go. Except RPGs - those things are evil.
