I think I figured out why some of the "Bested" cheevs are finicky... it's because we keep fast forwarding so the "boss start" trigger doesn't... trigger. And/or the "boss end" trigger.

Well, this was a fun game... It'll be nice when I return here for the GB set!

Several best cheevs trigged though I took damage during the fight.

Remi, we are definitely in the minority. Link's Awakening is my favorite LoZ game also. I hope Nintendo maintains the integrity of the series and never changes the formula too much. The direction they went with Hyrule Warriors makes me a tad nervous.

Also, why are the achievement ratings so mediocre? Is it simply because many weren't triggering? I'm about to attempt a 100% play through and hopefully the problems were fixed with the recent retroarch workings.

"Bested Angler Fish" didn't trigger for me, I did this 3 or 4 times.

Literally just got the "Bested Angler Fish" on first try on a RertoArch platform, RetroPie to be specific.

On the other hand, I could not get The Travel of THIEF to trigger using RetraArch. I had to boot up the trusty RAGBA emulator to get it to trigger. I transferred my rom from my file and renamed the .srm save .sav before booting the emulator and Wahla

For anyone who decides to play this set proceed at your own risk. The set is VERY buggy.

After looking at a LADX hack that I'm currently making a set for, I may come back and fix these to be more stable now that I have identified so many addresses, many of which would be better ways of ding the achievements in this set.
