all my achievements seemed to work fine... except Morning Star which triggered after I beat a level with the full whip rather than when I first got it

If you have triple-shot holy water, it's not that bad.

I think it would be cool to have achievements for the hidden pork chops and secret bonus (like the Crown in the second Stage). Also, if you want to go full slayer, add another one for the hard mode after finishing the game.

The Bloody Leather ones being separated really is an improvement. Now if you accidentally pick up an upgrade you don't have to reset the game, just the stage.

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