I've checked all of these you didn't unlocked so far, made the two you've mentioned less strict, the other seems fine for me.

Both are the same ROM with same MD5 checksum which is: 728e05f245ab8b7fe61083f6919dc485. Do not link any other ROMs with the set.

I have one question? I was comparing the scoreboard and see some of you guys with 85/40 on achievements. Others with 88/40. What is this, because im knew on the site.....

Mutawarrior
That is hardcore mode. It gives you double the points but you can't use save states (I don't know why anyone would want to because it defeats the purpose).

Because I finished in hardcore mode and only got 80/40. No savestates or anything. That's why I asked. Because of ranking porposes.
