Hello, could you please add the French version of this game. The rom MD5 is : 3f3730f9bfb6ab74085801af16b155a9. Thanks!

For some reason the achievements don't work in this game, the menu shows the list, but the achievements are not triggered. Besides that, when I try to close the game the Retroarch freezes. I'm using this in with EmulationStation.
6 Apr 23:14 2020
I tested the rom with Retroachievements off and the game loads and closes fine. I also tested other roms with achievements on and the emulator works with no problems.
7 Apr 0:03 2020
The only core that works with no problem was the beetle-bsnes
7 Apr 1:09 2020
You should be using RASNES or at the very least the SNES9x core of RAlibretro. It's not guaranteed the set will work with anything else.
7 Apr 8:36 2020
As I said, the only core of RetroArch that works properly was the beetle-bsnes. Probably the problem is with RetroArch, I will open a issue in the Github to notify them.
7 Apr 11:07 2020
Well some of the cores give different values in the memory than the one the set was developed in (SNES9x i.e. RASNES).
7 Apr 11:11 2020
RetroArch doesn't have a memory inspector or the RetroAchievements toolset so it's impossible to develop achievements in it until that happens. I also doubt the desire will be there to get sets compliant with each core after so many sets were made.
