Nothing is displayed at all?

This can be either a wrong username or an invalid/missing API-Key

After activating and placing the Widget, only the Retroachievements Avatar Icon is displayed ?

Your API-Key ist most likely empty or invalid

The Game List ist empty?

Make sure to use only integer numbers , and put at least 1 into the “Number of recent entries to display:” (default = 5, max = 50)

Everything is displayed except the Avatar Icon

The username is case sensitive ! Make sure that you have entered your username respecting upper/lower case

I want to display 100 recent Entries, but only 50 are displayed

That’s because the retroachievement API only returns 50 games.
