Sharing Your Xbox Achievement Progress With TrueAchievements Gamercards

By Dave Horobin, 7 days ago
For part two of our new site help feature, we're going to take a look at the Gamercards, which you can create to share your achievement progress on external websites.

What Are Gamercards

For those of you that are unsure what a Gamercard is, it's a static image that is stored on the TA servers that displays information about your Gamertag. Each time you're scanned by our scanners, the image will be updated so that it shows the most up-to-date information we have available. These images can then be used on external websites as a way to show off your stats and even link back to your TA profile.

We revamped our Gamercards a couple of years ago, adding a host of new customisation features that allow you to select which statistics you want to display, the theme of the card and the shape.

How to Create and Personalise Your Gamercard

The new page will be split into three sections: Preview, Settings and Image Links.

Preview

The preview section of the page will update in real-time as you make changes to the Settings section so that you can design the card exactly as you wish before sharing it on other sites.
