I'm unlocking these achievements with the delta hack which would be fine but it uses Sonic 1 special stage progression, so "professional collector" is impossible to get. Is there any way I could disable achievements for just this game?

ColonD
For some reason I can't unlock achievements in this game. I've tried various roms but none seem to work. Any help on why this is the case would be appreciated.

Nevermind, I fixed it by running a different Emulator. I was using Genesis Plus GX which worked with getting Achievements for Sonic 1, but didn't seem to work for Sonic 2, so I switched to picodrive and that seems to work for Sonic 2.

I'll be making a revision to this game soon, information in the forums.

Aquaphobic Ruin Zone should be fixed now.

What is up with those first 4 cheevo's having 0's?

it says i've unlocked them, the number of people who've unlocked it might have overflowed the value or something? not sure
17 May 18:12 2018
ColonD
I'm not sure what the issue with that is, I don't think it's an overflow issue (Other games have numbers higher and don't mess up). I'd assume that somehow the value storing the number of times that achievement has been earned has been corrupted.

Although that's just a guess, I have no idea.

I did the super sonic-related 'cheevos and didn't get the 'cheevos

"ra reads my sonic 2 rom hacks as the original sonic 2 for some reason.(was using sonic 2 delta and robotniks revenge)" I'm using Sonic Generations 2 and its not giving me 'cheevos...

The achievements are only built to work with Sonic 2, not any modifications. The romhacks should not be linked to Sonic 2. If you want the Sonic 2 achievements you will unfortunately need to play Sonic 2. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Why is this game missing 38 points in the distribution? I could've sworn it was a full 400 after the last cheevos were added...

3 of the original achievements (worth 15 + 15 + 8) seem to be demoted/unofficial. I do not know when/why this happened.

Yo, can I use level select for achievements like Death Egg Speedrun or Dry As A Stone?
4 Jun 10:34 2019
ColonD
Death Egg Speedrun: Yes. Dry As A Stone: Yes, but you must start from Chemical Plant Zone Act 2 (because of how it is programmed).

ColonD
Genocide Cave Zone has been demoted due to it not working anymore, and I'm not in the position to fix it anytime soon.
