went in and fixed the instrument achievements to make sure they pop up for everybody. If they didn't pop up during your play through, you just have to go back to dungeon you acquire the instrument in.

Agreed with Cirellio; this is a pretty awesome cheevo list overall though, I really enjoy this game and I have fond memories of it as the first game I ever bought with my very own money.

Just so you know: None of my Link's Awakening DX ROMs could be detected as being THIS game, because to RAVBA, this is a game for the Original GameBoy, were the DX version is for GameBoy Color. How did you made the game detected as this one?

Am I the only one who tried to do these achievements on the Game Boy version? RAVBA doesn't open up this achievement list with the Game Boy ROM, only for the DX/GBC version.
