Does this need 102% or just beat K. Rool the first time?

You just need to beat K. Rool the first time. I did this achievement forgetting about the warps that appear in the first two worlds. I was able to get this achievement without using those warps.

Notice: The requirement is 1:36 for PAL, because PAL is bad. If I can find an address that's unique to all PAL ROMs and all NTSC ROMs, then I can "fix" it, but until then, PAL is easier.

Agree with what was said above, if you save at Gloomy Gulch to check your time and it's around the 40min mark, you're okay. I died a few times on the last two worlds but managed to get 68 mins. Remember to use the handy shortcut on Screech's Sprint!

The reason it's difficult to do what I said above is the memory viewer filtering does not carry over between ROMs, and Cheat Engine filters do not convert well.

I think he was referring to my message about reaching Gloomy Gulch in 40 min.

Yes, I know. I was just following up my previous post.

Phew, I barely made it in 1:19. I got to the Gloomy Gulch save in 47 mins and thought I'd roll with it. Turns out that I did alright even though died a couple of times on the last few levels.

how to get the achievement in hardcore mode?

Well, the Gloomy Gulch save is pretty far into Gloomy Gulch, so I can see that being right. The 40 min mark is what I recommend before entering Gloomy Gulch.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ualATzajwLU This is a video of me beating this (recorded in x3 speed) so you can see the magnitude of what this achievement demands. I've made a few mistakes here, but it's probably the most you can afford really.

Got to Gloomy Gulch by 41min. Finished at 1:11. Died about 6 times total. As long as you don't have to make up a lot of ground from restarting a level and repeating a boss, you should be okay. Familiarize yourself with the levels beforehand.

I got the Gloomy Gulch save in 50 mins and finished the game in 1:17. I did'nt use shortcuts and I did'nt die after Gloomy Gulch save.

Does this have to be in one take or can you save and come back later?

You can save and come back later.

Its not really hard if you can save... if you fail too much times, you can load your last save sooo.Still sounds like a fun challenge

How are time challenges fun? All they require is the skipping and missing of elements that normally do make a game fun, in exchange for perfection with some arbitrary time... always one or another that throws a spanner in a set...

Man, finally done it!!! Very tricky one, did it 01:15 though.

@mentifisto: Time challenges are fun for some people. Speedruns are a massive segment of the gaming community and most modern games in the platform and/or Metroidvania genres have speedrun trophies of some kind.
