The Gamer Menu

By Rich Stone,
The feature you will probably use more than any on TrueTrophies is your personalized Gamer Menu.

The menu is available as soon as you've logged into the site, and is shown by clicking your Gamer Pic in the top menu bar:


This will open your Gamer Menu on the home tab.

The Home Tab

The home tab displays your current TrueTrophy score next to a link to your TrueTrophies homepage. You can click the refresh icon to update your score from PSN – stay on the homepage to see your score update.

You can also see your three most recently played games, your three next predicted trophies (based on ratio), and your three most recent trophies won.

If any of the three recently won trophies do not currently have a guide, you will be shown a link to add one - this helps the rest of the TrueTrophies community and also increments the progress on your Solutions badge!

The Social Tab

The Social tab contains your current TrueTrophies status and a list of your most recently online friends:

You can click the pencil icon to update your status, which will post to your friend feed and update on your homepage.

The Messages Tab

The Messages tab contains a list of your most recent private messages. You'll also see a red indicator for any unread messages on your Gamer pic in the top menu header, and on the Messages tab icon in the Gamer Menu.

The Notifications Tab

The Notifications tab displays your personal notifications for various events that have happened on the site. This includes things like new Site News stories, if you have been quoted in a forum post, or if a Walkthrough you've written has received a Thumbs Up.

You can click the notification to go through to the item (this will make it as read) or mark all of the items as read from the button.

You'll also see a blue indicator for any unread notifications on your Gamer pic in the top menu header, and on the Notifications tab icon in the Gamer Menu.

The Settings Tab

The Settings tab contains some of the most frequently changed settings on the site, such as the Dark Theme, and links to get through to the rest of the settings pages.

You can also force the site to a desktop width from this tab (Use Desktop mode).

And if you miss the red/green background colours of trophy names on the game pages that showed if you'd won them or not, you can turn on Highlight Trophy Won Status.


The Links Tab

The Links tab of the Gamer Menu contains a list of all the personalised links you have on the site, as well as useful links to help and support pages.
