BROKEN, the achievements doesn't pop
01 Jun 21:37
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
24 Jun 06:38
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.
25 Jun 03:16
RetroRobb
Do these work w/ the JOINTVENTURE code for 2-player adventure?
25 Jun 04:43
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 09:42
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 00:15
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.

Im having a hell of a time trying to unlock T.T. My last achievement and I cant manage to do it. Childhood me was much better at this game. Haha.

Mirrored Mode unlocked for me as well after doing the first race of the Future Funland trophy race, during a regular playthrough, not Adventure 2. not sure what triggered it, i had done everything up to that point except-
22 Oct 03:06
Sekani81511
Future Funland time trials, unlocking T.T. and beating Wizpig the second time. so for the record i'd beaten all courses and gotten all 47 balloons, done all bosses up to Wizpig 2nd race, completed all 4 mini-games for the T.T. amulet, done all trophy
22 Oct 03:08
Sekani81511
races except Future Funland that i was currently working on, and done all time trials except for Future Funland levels, even beat the T.T. records up to that point, oh and also unlocked Drumstick just prior to going to space.
22 Oct 03:10
Sekani81511
also should add there are no prior saves, so that couldn't have triggered it.
22 Oct 04:06
Sekani81511
MASTERED! Everything unlocked when it should have except for Mirrored Mode which i'm going to wrap up anyways. Great set, fix Mirrored Mode and it'll be perfect, keep up the good work Delmaru!
