Hello, I'm having trouble with "Power Bomb" and "Energy on Reserve" achievements. It says (Error) after Achievement Unlocked, then "Error with submission, please check! FAILED: cannot add new achievement to DB! (already added?)". What's up?

Hmmm! I was using a Japan/USA version from 2004. I just tried with a 1996 JU version and I was able to complete and submit the same cheevos.

Might be a problem when using Retroarch, but everytime I start this game it gives me a bunch of achievements for free, really annoying.

Remember to use the USA version of the game. Some achievements, like the ending, don't work in the [E] version!

These timed achievements are a real shit. Not necessary since there is already a speed run leaderboard for people who enjoy making them, disliked

Hmmm... As far as I can see, beating the game twice is enough to get all the achievements. Challenge accepted!
