Update a Trophy List

4,055 posts in this topic

I have a game that has changed its name a few years after it was released everywhere: on the store pages and on the console’s dashboard as well. However, the name on the trophy list is still intact. How does PSNProfiles usually handle cases like this? (The game has added a suffix to its name after an update which made it consistent with the name the game was released under in every other platform.)

Same developer. I assuming it is the follow up to grey Skies. 

 

Can a series be made for them?

I spent a few days looking into it and collaborating my search with a partner. However, the information regarding this item is scarce. When considering the registration of the internal ID and the alleged release date, it puts this game in a range between September 2012 - Novembers 2012 for registration, and an alleged release between April 2013 - June 2013. If you assume that the range of information released to the public was from September 2012 - June 2013, that lines up with the Macross 30th year anniversary events that were going on at the time. None of this is new information to you, I am sure. Anyway, it is highly likely that this game was supposed to be involved with one of those many events or concerts at the time. If you do happen across videomedia from that era, it was not uncommon for there to be a PS3 software hybrid disc present, but I do not have a great deal of information on that subject.

 

It is notable to also keep in mind that there were a few disasters that occurred in those years that might have been a factor in this not releasing. It is exceptionally difficult to know however. Other complications that could have occurred could have been related to licensing or some other things of that ilk. There is likely information on this release, but it might simply have been only in a magazine or something similar as a small advertisement that was lost to time. I can continue looking into it, sure, but I doubt that any fruit a search might give would be a satisfying answer for you.

Once again, thank you for your thorough response! And, yeah, I guess we both ended up dead-ends concerning that game. Another question: What's the deal with Season Match 2 & 3? It's weird. Season Match 1 got released in both NA and EU regions, then the 1 & 2 Bundle got released in Germany, but after that... Season Match 2 and Season Match 3 never got released, as far as I can tell, and each have the same one owner, pbnew12. I figure this is probably a developer dummy account (since there's dozens of these "pbnew" accounts), but it's strange that 3 trophysets release, then it ends, with 2 trophysets having zero owners after 2 years. I figure you likely delved into this situation at some point, so is it a matter of the developers going bankrupt or a indeifinite delay?

Joindots restructured, and are a German company (hence the physical bundle). It looks like Season Match 2 and 3 were certified by Sony Europe, as you noted the pbnew12 account (of which these seem to be NP environment testing accounts for Sony Europe). Venturing a guess, this came up during the restructuring and either got pushed back or cancelled as a result of that and/or the pandemic.

 

Might be worth just straight up asking Joindots and seeing if you get an answer.

Keymailer.co has a DLC listed for Maneater (https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/11766-maneater and https://psnprofiles.com/trophies/10867-maneater), claiming it releases today, so these might need to be rescanned tomorrow. (I don't see the DLC in the PSN store yet.)

Edit: Ignore this, the new trophies are in now.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: Trilogy Pack (PS4) is European version. I can now confirm it because I've just bought it from PlayStation Store UK. It doesn't separate the three games like the NA version does; it gives me just one title to download. I really can't comment on its PSVita version since I don't own a PSVita.

 

Thank you. :)

Since I never got any kind of response mentioning it previously - I feel like the logical location to have LEGO Rockband is the Rockband series NOT the LEGO series. I think moving it would appease both fanbases here

this will not be implemented. You could argue that should we allow this one case, then all the various LEGO games relating to a number of IP's should go to those series. We will be keeping all LEGO games in the LEGO series regardless of their affiliations to collaborative IPs/themes featured in their games.

What does one do when a game has released but it's not here at all? Can you still scan for it somehow? There's a game called "Niche - a genetics survival game" that launched on Wednesday, Sept. 1st, (https://store.playstation.com/en-se/product/EP6477-CUSA26913_00-2480656178814906/). It's been on Steam for almost 5 years (https://store.steampowered.com/app/440650/Niche__a_genetics_survival_game/), and has 31 achievements there, so it would be strange if it didn't have any trophies on PSN. I haven't bought it yet, so I don't know if it's the same issue that Alba's PS5 version had, where the trophies popped while playing, but the trophy list didn't exist in the PSN Trophy interface (which was resolved within a week of release). I just thought I'd flag it, because I prefer looking here than on Steam for trophies/achievements. =)

To my understanding of the last time I talked to Sly on how PSNP scans games in, this is how the site goes about it. PSNP scans games in batches in where it will look at a specific range index per session. In the next session, it will begin where it left off. So, to make it more simple, imagine that we are wanting to count to 100 and that we count in batches of 10 every day. One day one we count from 1-10, and day two, from 11-20 and so on. Now, PSNP will not go back and scan something that is indexed in a range that it has already passed through. This is why PSNP sometimes scans things in inconsistently, and might not capture a trophy list when you might expect.

 

There is, however, a secondary system is place that if someone were to scan their profile and a trophy list on the profile doesn't match a game in the site's internal database, it will make a targeted query to the API to search for the item that is missing. If one is found, it will then scan in that missing list. This is why there are times in where we only have a trophy list if we also have a registered owner of the game. There are other things about the scanner, but that is all you really need to know about it.

 

Anyway, in regards to the game you are mentioning, a game might very well have a trophy list, but if the developer hasn't flagged that trophy list to be public and go live (two different things) then the game won't scan into PSNP or have trophy earners. To further explain the distinction; if a trophy list is flagged to be public, but not to go live, it can scan into PSNP and will have no players until such a time that it goes live to allow players to sync their profiles to Sony's server which in turn allows players to sync to PSNP. The only exception to this is if a trophy list has been deleted from PSNP by the site owner, of which only a small number of cases exist.

 

As far as the GIT's ability to scan in new games manually, we cannot. The PSNP scanner runs automatically and the only one that can force a targeted scan for a specific game is Sly, the site owner. The GIT however can force the scanner to re-scan existing games so to pick up DLC data packets. So, to wrap up this explanation, for a new game to appear on PSNProfiles, it scans in when it does. There are some cases in where a dedicated few will contact a developer/publisher to make trophy lists public should they not be due to having forgotten to or some other reason.

That game is a non-syncer, therefore you have to email the devs/publisher and remind them to upload the list(s) to the trophy servers.

I was just writing up the same. It has 4 packages (NA, EU, JP, AS) that we scanned in on TrueTrophies on the 1st, and no trophy list that came with it. 99% of games these days have trophy packs, so I would contact the publisher as HuntingFever suggested.

 

Fantasy Friends - Under the Sea scanned in on the 1st and is missing a list. Sin Slayer scanned in yesterday and is missing a list. Smelter's PS5 list doesn't seem to be live yet after scanning yesterday. It's become pretty common sadly as of late.

 

Also starting to have a growing backlog of games with late lists that were added that haven't been played by anyone yet...

Yeah, I remember this being the case for Serious Sam Collection. Every other site, except PSNProfiles, had the trophylist up, but you guys couldn't manually push it to the site. Thankfully the game had finally come out like 2 years later haha.

Yeah, give it some time. If these game's trophies are still not syncable, I'll try to message the devs, like I did with Trenga, Farm for your Life, Techno Tanks, Biped HK, etc. I can't promise results, as seen with the incompetent devs for Starbear Taxi, Tarzan VR, or QuiVR, but I'll do my best. Several devs have been really responsive, while others have shut down or are antisocial. Far as I can say, the Trenga devs have been the nicest, even going as far to fix the NA game's trophyset.

The original series was deleted due to someone accidentally making a duplicate series, which broke the link. The master list needs to be updated, but being that it is a manual update to do that, it does take some time to do so, but I will update the list soon.
