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.

If you use the wall clip glitch from Hyrule Castle, it pops Sanctuary with Golden Age at the same time

Is there a way to get this working with the DX upgrade to the rom. All of this does is fix bugs and add awesome CD quality music. These should work for it. It's the definitive way to play the game
