This update has completely screwed it up and the new site in general just looks awful. Is there going to be a fix for this or a new time stamp add on?

Probably not. I doubt there gonna add them on. Have to wait and see. I hope they fix it up quickly tho, so many glitches.

I had a quick look at the timestamps script and was not as simple as editing the link to the new achievement pages :(

Might have another look at it but I don't really know how someone come across it anyways to bring it back.

So I was just looking at my achievements and was looking when I unlocked them, I don't know if this was when I didn't have live for a few days or if it's because of the new update, but for some of my achievements (at least for assassin's creed 2) it stated that I unlocked some of them on "acquired on 1/1/1753". What's up with that? is it a problem with the new update?

Not understanding what you mean by no more time stamps. I got time stamps on the achievements I got yesterday.

Since the update, achievements earned offline are apparently being tagged with that date.

Aside from the offline achievements, timestamps are functioning perfectly for me. What do you mean they're gone?

I think TC is referring to the actual time, which we used to be able to see with the Greasemonkey script.

Someone would need to get in contact with SnapDragon. IIRC, he wrote the script. Maybe he can fix it?

I was just taking a look at the code. I tried the simplest fix of just changing the domain because it is no longer ViewAchievementDetails* but now Achievements*. That would have fixed it if they still have the achievement date data in the same format, but since it didn't they must have changed it. I think the script basically needs to be rewritten, but I'm still a newb regarding Java(script). At least I can understand the code now though :)

It doens't look possible now as the hours and minutes information used to be included in the page. That information isn't there any more, so I don't think a script would be possible.

I tried submitting feedback through http://mymfe.microsoft.com/Xbox.com/feedback.aspx?formID=43 (http://mymfe.microsoft.com/Xbox.com/feedback.aspx?formID=43). Hopefully they do something.

Unfortunately xbox.com has removed the timestamp info from the html all together, so unless they re-add it there will be no fix.

That data was always hidden, the firefox script by snapdragon made it possible to see it though. Messaging Microsoft will not fix the problem as the data was not openly published by them.

Hopefully someone figures out the new feed so that information can be published again.

True, but even without Firefox you use to be able to see the timestamps in the html. Now, the timestamp is non-existant in the html so there is nothing for any add-ons to even read. What a shame!

Just tried to go to xbox.com

Uh oh... that shouldn't have happened.

It appears you've found a glitch in the system.

Sorry. We were, uh... a little bit distracted playing Halo: Reach (http://marketplace.xbox.com/Product/Halo-Reach/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8024d53085b). We will work on fixing this right away.




WTF is that shit don;t goddamn advertise to me when your site doesn't work fucking microsoft

it actually doesnt show dates for offline achievements now and they have ordered the achievements from date most recently unlocked to last which it was previously. they are all still mixed up badly though.

This new xbox.com seriously ruins alot of the Xbox experience for me. I loved comparing and seeing when I got achievements and at what specific time as well. I HATE that it's gone now. If it ain't broke, DON'T fix it.

I like the new look of the site. Looks more clean and simple to use.

People used that info to figure out who had gamesaved/hacked achievements. Although it was become less useful with new programs that the hackers were using to add dates and times.

Still though, I loved being able to see my exact times...
I'm still really pissed about this.

Yeah, I'm the original author of that script, and as stated earlier in the thread, there's nothing I can do to fix it for the new page format. The timestamp data is completely gone from the HTML. Boo. :(

I hate how when your comparing games on the new Xbox.com the achievements don`t come in the order of the achievements date stamps when they were unlocked anymore that`s not cool.

Good news! With the most recent dashboard update, the Xbox achievement pages once again have full timestamp information! It's once again possible to see the times you unlocked achievements, not just the dates.

I wrote a new version of the script, at http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/124569

It should work in both Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

Nice work. It is nice that someone made the effort to find a relevant thread rather than starting a new one :beer:

I know when I play offline, there's no dates and I think they should be. But if they did away with the dates, no biggie to me.

Sweet. Guess it's time to reinstall greasemonkey.

Glad to see this is working again! This script is what made me install Greasemonkey in the first place but since then I use it for various other scripts but mainly for making YouTube work better :)
