Confirmed; I never encountered problems here before.

Heh, I love bugs like that "WTF, how did this ever work at all??"

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

I've been using this widget for many many years and it has always shown my recently played games correctly.

Me too, the only thing it would mix around in no method I can discern is multiple games I have played on one single day.

At least it's working again like before.

Same. I am seeing a lot of longtime users in this thread, that have been using it, and it has been working.

If you only play new games and only repeat them before the next X new games, then it would appear to work.

Really, seriously, for years it was working fine as expected, and not just with new games. I play a lot of games repeatedly, and I often looked at my recently played widget*, I assure you.

It has always worked correctly for me, until very recently.

The only potential "oddity" was that to fill the quantity, it would apparently randomly choose among games played on the relevant date when a given date would overflow the 10-game limit, as evidenced by refreshing, and getting new games showing.

Yeah, I love box cover art so I ALWAYS look at my recently played widget after logging new plays. I just get a kick out of looking at the little thumbnails. I also do a lot of repeat, non-new-to-me plays. In the years since I've started using it, it really, honestly, has consistently worked. cool
Well until a few days ago when I saw the new-to-me bug...

Agreed. It always seemed correct for me as well.

Aldie, not to beat a dead horse, but just wanted to provide proof that the widget is indeed working or was, and seems to be back to normal now.


My first play of the Imperial Assault base game was in December of 2014, since then I have played many other games, new/old to me. We played another game of this Sunday night (15th of it). The log shows the game back as it should be. It is certainly not new to us. The ones behind it were also not new to us but showed up as they should. The Imperial Guard Champion was a first play for us this last play and it is in line before the base game.

The widget indeed was working for many years, and seems to be doing so again.
