After looking at a LADX hack that I'm currently making a set for, I may come back and fix these to be more stable now that I have identified so many addresses, many of which would be better ways of ding the achievements in this set.

I'm going to fix the achievements in here in the future after working on a hack with the same addresses and figuring stuff out. But it may take some time.

Okay, so I just unlocked a bunch of achievements randomly without earning them. Including the complete photo album, all 26 secret shells and the upgrades to arrows and bombs. All I did was visit the camera place before going into the Mobgoblin cave

I got the "Tower Organ" achievement when I knocked the final pillar down, instead of beating the boss and picking the instrument up.

BTW used latest retroarch with the Gearboy core, everything was smooth

I really dislike the preoccupation with the Zelda sets to defeat all the bosses without losing hearts. Because when everyone plays 2D Zelda, they obviously play it for the deep engrossing combat, not the exploration and puzzles.

This particular one is worse because you're not allowed to use savestates, even when not on hardcore mode, because then the achievement won't pop. Like, the whole point of having hardcore mode or not is to make the choice available

A good set showcases the strengths of the gameplay, not the weaknesses. When a large portion of a set is based on combat that's widely considered lackluster by fans, those flaws are magnified and it's game-ruining.

The combat is not flawed. You have to learn the boss fights (boss attack patterns & which items to use) and most of them can be consistently done without damage once you do.
