Cheevos support for RetroArch is still experimental. Chances are: No, you can't and probably never will.

Alrighty, no biggie. At least it works for the most part lol

On libretro-Snes9X, the 1 bomb and 100 rupee cheevos triggered on launch, although, kind of a non-issue because you get those super early anyways.

I just played through on Hardcore on the US ROM but none of the bested achievements unlocked for me except Agahnim and Ganon, nor the wisdom medal or Misery Mire. Does anyone have an idea why these did not unlock for me? I am also playing on a RP 3.

Nevermind. I was able to get the missing acheivements on my PC.

Just as a heads up, I just completed the second dungeon and the achievement for collecting the pendant after the boss didn't trigger.

Why would there be? That room is set to appear instead of a patched glitch, which means it can't be visited by normal means.

retro achievements isn't limited to what's natural in the game. You can put anything you can find the hex value for - see Super Mario World's "Bother The Wigglers". I'd do it, but I've been waist deep in trying to set up cheevos for Kaizo Mario 2 & 3

I'm interested in fixing this set to be battery save abuse proof in the very near future. I may need some help ID'ing an address or 2, but I'll ask for help when I get to that point.

Just noting here that I did a bit of sequence breaking and beat Blind's dungeon before Skulls Woods (working on that now) and grabbed the Tempered Sword right away - the achievement did not pop. I'm assuming it will once I beat Mothula.
