...replaying levels in all new ways and actually studying and mastering all the individual small enemies' attack patterns rather than just tanking through is a fresh and fun experience for me. So at least from me, thanks dude.

Mutawarrior
That's the way I like to play (trying to go hitless) but I end up playing to take as few hits as possible because hitless the entire game is extremely hard if not impossible with the randomness of enemies like Shadow Man, Doc Quick Man, etc.
24 Sep 1:49 2016
Mutawarrior
Hitless stage achievements for this game aren't hard to learn though. MM3 is my favorite video game ever made and is very fair in terms of avoiding damage even when you're weaponless/using only the arm cannon.
26 Sep 22:41 2016
popoki
Yeah, part of me worries about damageless stage achievements being added for every MM on here in the future but honestly I've had a lot of fun earning them for 3, which happens to be my favorite MM.
26 Sep 22:43 2016
popoki
That being said though, man, these no-E-tank, buster-only ones for the Doc Robots in particular are kind of insane lol. I still to this day have a lot of trouble fighting the likes of Quick and Wood even with weaknesses. Borderline ludicrous.

Hey there! The no damage stage achievements are very fun to get!
6 Apr 1:47 2017
Rezeed
I wonder if No E-Tank Runs could be an achievement to place in. That and a basic speedrun achievement.
13 Apr 16:42 2017
SlimKirby
ok, none of the achievements are popping for me. Just the "extra life" one. But any of the normal game progressions achievements or the "buster only" ones are going through...
13 Apr 16:48 2017
SlimKirby
Was wondering if it could be a ROM conflict, but I am using the USA one, the one used for all the other games.
13 Apr 17:31 2017
meleu
Are you using RANES?
13 Apr 20:58 2017
SlimKirby
yes. Like I said, the extra life achievement popped, but none of the others are working.

The rom that you need is:Rockman 3 - Dr. Wily no Saigo! (Japan) the checksum is: 85944fb58b6afc53f8d20b8c1e19a0ab. Ok

My hack of Mega Man 3, Link Man, recognizes the achievements.

I used the rom with checksum e859a2e133eef9e2b1612508b6acfd58 to make the achievements I made, so I'm reposting this in case it got lost/left back.

I'm having a heck of a time finding a rom with those checksums.

partTimeNinja
Well this one looks difficult for someone that has never played 3 before. This will be interesting lol

Update apparently this version of the emulator works on this machine, so finally.

raRedwykelz
Can i do those no damage achievements in the boss rush?
22 Sep 21:11 2018
Mutawarrior
No, they have to be in the robot master stages. The boss rush has its own achievement.
21 Oct 6:04 2018
Mutawarrior
Note: For players using RetroArch & RAlibretro, make sure player 2 inputs are disabled before you start the set. I know for a fact that my achievements won't trigger if you have them enabled (perhaps the ones made by Jaarl & Scootaloo too).
