I say we have achievements for the following: Battling Pink Puffs, Obtaining Adamant Armor, Obtaining Glass Helmet, Obtaining Gragon Whisker (whip), This way the rare drops give us players something to keep shooting for.

We need more achievements here! ;/

Tried moving him around, tried renaming back to Cecil, still can't get the Outstanding Knight achievement... anybody else had issues?

I think the number of achievements seems fine. FF4 Advance is the "modern" re-interpretation of the game, and has a lot of the "weird" achievements. Leave the original FFII "old school", when the goal of a game was to play through it and beat it.

So this just happened. I'm inside the Giant of Babil in the room before the 4 Fiends fight. I'm attacked from behind and flee the battle. By doing so I unlock the Unexpected Consequences achievement.

two achievement ideas:Pan handled: learn the summon SylphA tale of two blades: Trade in your legend sword for the LEGENDary Excalibur.*not sorry for puns

Great set! I thought it was nice to have a final fantasy set that doesn't take 50hrs and multiple plays. Especially with the GBA set available.
30 Jul 16:39 2017
I had a version downloaded that didn't sync up with these achievements. It says versionj 1.1, but when I was trying to get these to load, it kept saying version 1.0. I found the newer version, but I think a lot of other games may be having this probl
30 Jul 16:41 2017
em. Is there some way I can set the game to work with another version, like when the game asks what game to use when it can't find the right name?

my roms dont works the achivments?
30 Jan 9:26 2018
You need the second release, often referred to as v1.1 or Rev 1. The original version doesn't link. If you have a ROM that says 1.1 or Rev 1 but doesn't work, then the ROM is mislabeled, which is a common problem.

How about a trophy for landing all your ships at baron castle? This is something I've always challenged my friends to do when they played this game.

Can you make this work with the Final Fantasy IV 10th anniversary edition translation by J2E?
1 May 12:18 2018
I love the way you did the achievements. Just working through the story, and fewer bigger-point achievements rather than make 80 of them. Well done, thank you.

I disagree with the above user... I know FF2 is basically "Easy Type" but these achievements are basically just "play the game -> get RetroScore" instead of challenging the player with some creative obstacles... they don't have to be extreme
4 Aug 6:59 2018
Maybe something as simple as "Vengeance is mine!" -> Defeat Rubicante without Edge dying in the underground tower of babilor"White Matter Spoon" --> Throw the spoon at Zeromus in the final battleAdd a bit more challenge and are not hard toget

I like "RetroScore". It gives me a reason to play RPGs, including these FF games I've never played before.
6 Jul 19:49 2019
Definitely got every achievement on hardcore, but the Betrayed by Kain achievement never popped. Ticket created!
2 Dec 22:38 2019
I agree with Jeftah here. This set is a good start and it's better than nothing, but it's not very interesting.

Dancing Mad - Equip 5 Dancing Daggers in the same party.
