I feel this will people with obscurities, which is common place on the NES. http://strategywiki.org/wiki/Super_Mario_Bros._3/Table_of_Contents

Can you bring back the 655,350 achievement? There's nothing for score in this game, it'd be nice for it to return.

I have A LOT of achievements that don't trigger: the "white house" in world 1, memory and luck, earn a 1up with coins, etc. While others triggered...

Goomba Massacre isn't working for me. I am consistently getting in the ballpark of 25 1-ups and the achievement isn't popping.

I'm running Super Mario Bros 3 (U) (PRG 0) on hardcore and White Mushroom 1 activates fine, might be worth switching rom?
22 Oct 15:23 2016
TinNova
I think yes since similar ROMs tend to share achievements, for example some games share achievements with every localization, PAL, US, JAP, etc :)

I found a small Rom called Super Mario All-Stars NES. Which is like the SNES All-Stars. Could the Achievements on 4 games work here too? Its said you can Patch it with Super Mario Bros. 3 (U) (PRG1) [!].nes.

Does Dominating World 8 also include the hand stages?

Are the leaderboards closed or something?

Somebody else added them, and I disabled them. Those constant popups take away from the game, and I also wouldn't have used that time format.

Any one used the room hack?

I'm seeing many of these achievements not unlock. It's strange because some do (getting to a new world, for example). Breaking down rubble in World 2 didn't work however, nor did finding the coin ship or getting any of three consecutive star cards.

Scenic route and iced rubble would not trigger in retroarch on a raspberry pi. Worked fine in emulator. Great set thanks!

white mushroom 7 is the worst thing

Protip: You get a full inventory of P-Wings in New Game+, which makes cleaning up remaining achievements after your first playthrough a lot less of a hassle. Just make sure you don't close the game.
