NARPAS SWORD code won't add achievements either for anyone who's wondering
12 Nov 12:25 2016
Morph ball achievement didn't pop. Anyone else having the same problem?
28 Dec 1:11 2016
I have not earn Brain Damage...another fail in another game...In every game i have mistakes.

Use Metroid (U) [!] for this set. (E) will not function, it's been linked elsewhere because of timer shenanigans causing problems.
20 Jan 23:40 2017
Do not link Romhacks here. They belong in their own entries.

Morph ball didn't pop for me either.
4 Feb 17:04 2017
Pal timer would be shorter, not longer, on igt.
4 Feb 17:06 2017
Morph ball pops correctly, use the RANes emulator this site offers, not retroarch. (Or use the nightly build (NOT THE STABLE RELEASE) of retroarch, with quicknes as a core)
1 Mar 0:55 2018
Using RetroaArch is fine!
30 Apr 1:42 2018
Do the ones for beating the game in a certain time stack or do you need to beat it 5 separate times?
5 Jun 3:59 2018
They do stack
29 Nov 3:26 2018
Battery save protection is added to the set as well as other fixes.
3 Dec 23:21 2018
If you're playing on RetroArch please use QuickNES core only for this set.
8 Dec 3:34 2018
Question: Am I going crazy or is the ice beam achievement glitched? Because I picked up the one in Brinstar first, then picked it up in Norfair but the achievement didn't pop. Was I supposed to pick it up in Norfair first for the achievement to work?
10 Dec 15:36 2018
ice beam achievement is glitched
12 Dec 21:34 2018
And I guess alienation is also broken.
20 Dec 17:22 2018
Ice Beam was broken. Fixed now.
21 Dec 8:33 2018
Alienation wasn't completely broken but it's fixed too.
15 Apr 18:29 2020
And that's precisely why I love this community. Only time I had played this game was inside the Metroid Zero Mission bonus and only did the basic. Now, after mastering this classic, I feel so much closer to this epic series.

It isn't just about the points, it's about truly diving into the game. It's about learning how to truly understand the soul of each game. Thank you, RA.
