Seriously, the speed run forced achievements are killing this for me. Speed runs are already clocked for which people can compete for.

Hello, I'm having trouble with "Power Bomb" and "Energy on Reserve" achievements. It says (Error) after Achievement Unlocked, then "Error with submission, please check! FAILED: cannot add new achievement to DB! (already added?)". What's up?

Hmmm! I was using a Japan/USA version from 2004. I just tried with a 1996 JU version and I was able to complete and submit the same cheevos.

Might be a problem when using Retroarch, but everytime I start this game it gives me a bunch of achievements for free, really annoying.

Remember to use the USA version of the game. Some achievements, like the ending, don't work in the [E] version!

These timed achievements are a real shit. Not necessary since there is already a speed run leaderboard for people who enjoy making them, disliked
