I'll do a minor points revision for that and some of the other ones since those were done before the 400 point cap limit was removed.
23 Sep 2020

Ah okayI just finished the set a few days ago, I still like the game but dang this set was definitely the hardest Mega Man one so far (overall, and not counting any Bonus sets)
23 Sep 2020

Haha, I know the ones I made were pretty tough but hopefully they weren't too frustrating. I'm happy the 400 point set limits on RA got removed because this one & many others deserved way more than 400 points given the effort. Congrats by the way.

Just for future reference, since this set got tickets due lack of info, all achievements not work if use the cheat for high jump that involve the 2P, and the descriptions not will be updated because players must play without cheats naturally
5 Nov 2020
19:24
Which means you need to play as intended if want to earn achievements here, shouldn't be so hard after some practice
5 Nov 2020

I posted comments about that on the game wall but they got buried with all the other comments that got posted since. RA needs to have something that lets you scroll through pages of past game wall comments.
5 Nov 2020
21:03
All the achievements I made have cheat protection that prevents them from triggering if any player 2 inputs are detected (high jump cheat uses player 2 inputs). So disable player 2 inputs.
5 Nov 2020
21:05
Also all the achievements I made were done in RANES so they will all work if RANES is used & should all work if the FCEUMM core in RAlibretro is used. RetroArch did not support RA when I made those.
5 Nov 2020
21:13
So if you use RetroArch & they don't trigger, don't file a ticket because they all work fine in the proper emulators. Use the hash 4a53b6f58067d62c9a43404fe835dd5c for the ones I made (same one I used when making them).

Did you edited the old ones made by Jaarl and Scootaloo ? Maybe need to check sometime, since they're no longer active
6 Nov 2020
0:04
No, I haven't touched any of theirs other than updating some icons back when I made my achievements.

All these achievements are boring and stupid... use the arm cannon the entire game.. okay, what's the fucking point of playing a MM game only using the buster? :/ lame as shit.
5 Dec 2020
12:46
The point is the challenge of it all. Without that, what's the point of achievements? Might as well play the game on NES & say the hell with any achievements. There are also basic achievements for getting the weapons, beating bosses, etc.

cool but mildly frustrating set, made me realize that doc quick is surprisingly easy after some trial and error, but doc wood on the other hand is awful no matter how much practice you put in
15 Feb 2021

there should be a difference between an Achievement and a Challenge

petition to rename the buster only no damage challenges to"do it like Roahm"
5 Apr 2021

sounds interesting. Thing is, I did use his videos as a reference to help me with the buster only damageless challenges.
6 Apr 2021

Greetings Mutawarrior, Jaarl and Scootaloo! Congratulations and thank you for your time and effort making a set for this game. All achievements are working smoothly. I wish you all the best.
