Well, the problem is fixed, though I think the author intended them to trigger at the end of 1-4/2-4/3-4 instead of all at the start of 4-1. So now they should trigger at various intervals, instead of all at once.

Nope, most of the "Strength up" achievements didn't pop.

Only one leaderboard available, which is for the Sky Palace (World 4-1) - due to RA's current coding limitations.

i posted a comment on the Like An Angel cheevo. i need some EXTREME clarification on how to get this to be unlocked.

ENZYME1
You have to play the ENTIRE game (at least from the first world) with a feather for it to unlock. How much explanation do you need? You know the game loops on a password after beating it right? So you can always try again.

Defeated Medusa without being harmed. Didnt pop.

Your using the wrong md5

It popped my 3rd time through before I faced Medusa. Doesnt make sense.

ENZYME1
Then what you are most likely experiencing is connectivity issues, which I really can't help you with. That achievement and the other you posted to were beta-tested many times over.

I have played through the game twice purchasing a feather in 1-3 and made it to Sky Palace without losing it. For this cheevo requiring little explanation, why isn't it working?
2 Jan 2:26 2018
ENZYME1
I'm sorry to hear that, but I've explained it already (too many times) This will also be the last time I will respond to this. Next time you play take a Twitch recording and send to an admin to prove this. In the meantime I will triple check.

Same here. Medusa damageless popped one time before the fight. I also think the Feather achievement requires more clarification. Do you have to play from World 1 to Sky Palace without dying at all, or only without falling?
4 Jan 12:31 2018
ENZYME1
Angel requires you not to fall (and lose a feather) there wouldn't be any challenge if you just bought a feather to the end of the game. Has nothing to do with dying & your pal has not clarified which MD5 he's using..I'm about to unlink the other 12

i was asked about this cheevo after i gave extremely vivid details. you have to buy the Feather in the first shop when it's available in the game, and you CANNOT FALL IN ANY PIT AFTERWARD FOR THE REST OF THE GAME. it's that absurdly hard.
