Oh, thanks! I always thought she was the girl on the roof!

I linked both the Street Gangs and the Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari roms to this profile/entry.

Why no achievement for advanced difficulty?
20 Nov 5:21 2016
I normally don't like beat 'em ups but this game is so wacky and fun!
3 Dec 19:53 2016
because advanced difficulty only changes the groups you fight and can be modified at any point in time in the game. There would be no logical, feasible, or reasonable reason to make or attempt to make such an achievement.

I would like to suggest a cheevo: type a password correctly. :-)
23 Aug 15:34 2017
Having issues with Rocko's achievement currently. I wait for the dialogue and the coin to spawn but hasn't been working.
25 Aug 17:05 2017
I noticed I had problems getting the boss achievements to pop if I was on Advanced. I switched to Novice and boom, it worked.
1 Sep 10:27 2017
Boss achievements aren't working for me. Just finished the game on novice. Only got a couple boss achievements. Seems somethings wrong with it. And yes, I waited for he coin to drop and I collected it.
1 Sep 14:44 2017
I just did this recently. They were working fine once I changed the difficulty. Not sure besides that how to get it working properly but it does. I think it has something to do with the spec. amount you get when you pick up the coin from the boss.
5 Sep 0:25 2017
(part1) Here's how I got it working. Started out in Advanced, switched to Novice in-game (not sure this part matters). But here's where I got it working. I waited till the bosses finished their speech entirely before attacking.
5 Sep 0:26 2017
(part2) After I killed them, I let the coin sit and bounce for a bit...then the achievement popped up. Then I collected the coin. Seems to work on all bosses.
5 Sep 2:37 2017
Yea, that's pretty much what I did too.
10 Jan 15:14 2018
Unlocked all the achievements but jujutsu master. I know in general what you're supposed to do but can't pull it off! Is my timing off or is there something I'm missing here?
8 May 11:16 2018
is there a trick to hitting an enemy 200 times without them dying? Do i need to have horrible stats and attempt to beat on a boss that blocks all my moves or something? Thanks for any help
22 Jul 15:13 2019
I got a guy in the corner, I started hitting him repeatedly with a pipe or wood stick whatever it is, no achievement. I thought okay well maybe I can't use a weapon so I start using my fists no achievement. How do you do those achievements
25 Sep 18:58 2019
yo! I forgot televandalist worked on a revision for this game! let's play it!
20 Nov 3:16 2019
<3 this game.
17 Apr 19:59 2020
this game makes me want to go back and change all my previous 5-star ratings to 4
16 Nov 7:41 2020
This achievement is really dumb and super glitched out. I just put in the pass and ran through the entire game never getting hit, never entering a shop... mind you I was save state scumming, the only thing I accidentally did was do the Jujitsu move.
