Just checking, do you not get the Chaos Emerald achievements if you use level select? I read in the S1 page that it disables level-based, just making sure cuz it didn't pop them for me but i used the level select to keep returning to EHZ.

(Which is how I did it on console and Android 2013 versions, heh)

Anyone notice how you could technically get all the achievements without using Sonic at all? Assuming the descriptions aren't forgetting anything of course...

You can put another Perfect achievement in Chemical Plant Act 1 :D

Playing with the cheats activated, especially the Super Sonic cheat, gave me the 'Professional Collector' achievement. Some of the others activated simply by letting the game go into demo mode at the title screen. Bug, or just hilarious coincidence?

Don't Look Back works, just don't hit Left before you start the game either.

ra reads my sonic 2 rom hacks as the original sonic 2 for some reason.(was using sonic 2 delta and robotniks revenge)

I'm unlocking these achievements with the delta hack which would be fine but it uses Sonic 1 special stage progression, so "professional collector" is impossible to get. Is there any way I could disable achievements for just this game?
20 Aug 1:05 2017
ColonD
For some reason I can't unlock achievements in this game. I've tried various roms but none seem to work. Any help on why this is the case would be appreciated.

Nevermind, I fixed it by running a different Emulator. I was using Genesis Plus GX which worked with getting Achievements for Sonic 1, but didn't seem to work for Sonic 2, so I switched to picodrive and that seems to work for Sonic 2.

I'll be making a revision to this game soon, information in the forums.

Aquaphobic Ruin Zone should be fixed now.

What is up with those first 4 cheevo's having 0's?
17 May 3:11 2018
2Tie
it says i've unlocked them, the number of people who've unlocked it might have overflowed the value or something? not sure
17 May 18:12 2018
ColonD
I'm not sure what the issue with that is, I don't think it's an overflow issue (Other games have numbers higher and don't mess up). I'd assume that somehow the value storing the number of times that achievement has been earned has been corrupted.
17 May 18:15 2018
ColonD
Although that's just a guess, I have no idea.

I did the super sonic-related 'cheevos and didn't get the 'cheevos
26 May 15:05 2018

"ra reads my sonic 2 rom hacks as the original sonic 2 for some reason.(was using sonic 2 delta and robotniks revenge)" I'm using Sonic Generations 2 and its not giving me 'cheevos...

The achievements are only built to work with Sonic 2, not any modifications. The romhacks should not be linked to Sonic 2. If you want the Sonic 2 achievements you will unfortunately need to play Sonic 2. Sorry for the inconvenience.
