The original rom as well as the For The Frog The Bell Tolls translated rom are both linked to this game entry.
19 Apr 2:36 2016
For this game, take the original game's rom (MD5 checksum of 4EBE14C4C51555908C0E4CABB66DC813) and patch it with the For The Frog The Bell Tolls v1.0 patch found here: http://www.romhacking.net/download/translations/1623/
19 Apr 2:38 2016
I'm not sure if the achievements work if the original rom is used. I'm guessing most of them should but I didn't test any of them.
19 Apr 2:42 2016
Check out the comment sections of the following achievements for comments I posted: Undefeated Till The Springs, A Mammoth Undefeated Streak, Undefeated King, Icy Ball Of Wonder, Untouchable In The Desert Of Dessert, and Warm Syrup.
19 Apr 2:44 2016
Since this game has no death/defeat counter and it has unavoidable defeats that are part of the game, I made 3 undefeated achievements (Undefeated Till The Springs, A Mammoth Undefeated Streak, and Undefeated King) that cover a full deathless run.
19 Apr 2:45 2016
Start a new file for these. You can make 2 saves while getting these 3 achievements. Check out the comments sections of all 3 achievements for info when & where the 2 saves should be made. Do not save any more than the 2 times when going for these 3.
19 Apr 2:47 2016
When attempting these 3 undefeated achievements, taking an avoidable death will reset all the hits of the undefeated achievement you're currently going for and so will quitting/loading a game.
19 Apr 2:48 2016
You can quit once you reach either of the 2 points where you can save, which are after Undefeated Till The Springs and A Mammoth Undefeated Streak trigger respectively.
27 Apr 0:24 2016
Seems like an interesting game, I'm surprised it wasn't in a the GoodGBx rom set.
4 Nov 20:03 2016
Make sure the patched rom has an MD5 checksum of 5e477cdea0b3266b505ac5938ddc5e5c
7 Feb 0:17 2018
What an awesome set for an awesome game.
30 Apr 21:52 2018
"Undefeated Till The Springs" not triggered for me.
30 Apr 22:10 2018
The site is having connection issues so that's most likely the cause.
25 Aug 17:10 2018
Does this work with the translated ROM?
26 Aug 6:15 2018
I used the translated rom to make the set. But use the MD5 hash/rom that I posted above or else I can't guarantee the achievements will work 100%.
14 Nov 3:52 2018
A Mammoth Undefeated Streak is the hardest achievement to get & takes a while so make sure you check out the comments I added so you know what's needed.
