For all of the time Trials, you MUST use the default vehicle for that track. Otherwise, they will not work.

Some time trials doesn't work

Ancient Key and Crescent Island key unlock on start up of the game.
25 May 21:59
MGNS8M
They only unlocked for me if you already had a save-file.

BROKEN, the achievements doesn't pop
01 Jun 22:37
Delmaru
They were probably broken because you were most likely using a wrong version. Everything should work just fine if you use a V1.0 US rom, and all other versions have been linked to a different entry.

Only 2 Achievements pop, the other doesn't work

SonicZ16
Just a friendly warning: Mirrored Mode triggers by loading a completed Adventure 2 file. It won't pop right away when you get 47, so don't worry if it doesn't.

Do these work w/ the JOINTVENTURE code for 2-player adventure?
25 Jun 05:43
Delmaru
Yes, they do. I didn't add cheat protection because all other cheats do not affect Adventure.

Every place I look is either V1.1, restricted to "registered users", or ends in .exe (which I KNOW wouldn't be legit). The REALLY annoying part though? I OWN THIS GAME PHYSICALLY, so I'm the LAST person that should be blocked!
26 Jun 10:42
ShadwSonic
I FINALLY FOUND ONE THAT WORKS! The site you want is "mediafire", every other one I tried was either the wrong version or a fraudulent file!

For those who are curious at the start with the character specific cheevos, you must win 5 balloons from races only, collecting Balloons in the hub doesn't count to your total
27 Jun 01:15
ShadwSonic
Wrong, Hub balloons DO count (that's how I got Krunch). HOWEVER, you are NOT allowed to exit Adventure midway through getting one of those cheevs, so you can only earn 8 of them without starting a new file.

I see

Adventure 2 achievement popped up while doing the trophy race of the Space World (Finished Darkmoon caverns to be specific)

The only achievements that wouldn't work in JOINTVENTURE were the Collect any 5 balloons with the second player.
