I gave some ideias on the official forum topic for some achievements!
29 Jan 2:42 2020
Oh boy, I'll start this set as soon as possible! If y'all want we can put on few more challenging achievements xD
29 Jan 3:00 2020
Yaaaaaaaaaaaas
30 Jan 6:21 2020
You have to spread rules around like the plague to complete the set. I feared this would happen. At least we don't have to deal with the random rule?Oh, no, I just gave some devs ideas. Don't do it. Oh, god, don't do it.
30 Jan 6:38 2020
I made a joke achievement when testing called "Abolish Random" - and the description was "Because Fuck Random." So no worries there, at least.
30 Jan 19:08 2020
I have tried many files and every one didn't have the achievement list, which version do I use
31 Jan 14:47 2020
Ok. Please, explain to me the matter of winning battles "without leveling".Should Squall always be "dead" at level 1 until the end of the game or do I just "can't level" at the end of these specific battles on the status screen after the battle?
31 Jan 14:51 2020
And, could have put a cheevo to "defeat Ifrit in the Fire Cavern with less than 10 seconds on the time counter (including the post battle status screen)".
31 Jan 15:34 2020
Incredible game, but with many card achievements. should have defeated Ifrit in the Cave of Fire with less than 10 seconds on the time counter (including the post-battle status screen)As luciasoft said
1 Feb 18:19 2020
You have to avoid anyone leveling up so just having Squall be dead at the end of a fight isn't going to be good enough.
1 Feb 18:20 2020
Defeating Ifrit with a low amount of time left is already part of another achievement and seems kind of redundant to add.
3 Feb 12:38 2020
Em relao as conquistas de n usar as junctions, como realmente elas funcionam?? No posso equipar as os gfs e suas junctions para melhorar os status dos personagens?
3 Feb 12:39 2020
ou simplesmente s no posso usar as habilidades das junctions, como draw, magic, entre outras.
8 Apr 13:11 2020
What does the [m] in certain achievements stand for ?
8 Apr 21:21 2020
Missable
26 May 11:01 2020
What's this no levelling up nonsense? Can't there be sets without nonsense? RPGs are made to level up...
26 May 11:31 2020
The funny thing is FFVIII is actually easier if you don't level up.
26 May 11:46 2020
Except the Lionheart weapon wouldn't be available apparently, which is is also a a cheevo, so this set is contradictory.
1 Jun 2:59 2020
There are many RPGs where you're not going to be able to get everything in 1 save file. Persona 5 for example requires 10 full playthroughs to get every single item.
1 Jun 3:02 2020
If your only contradicting achievement is something that requires 5 minutes of grinding before reseting then you got off pretty lightly.
