Another great RPG classic
28 Oct 21:48 2017
Patching my own rom led to red dragon triggering the yellow dragon achievement, sword/shield achievements not triggering, and this: https://imgur.com/a/QYh5a
13 Nov 12:57 2017
thinking of doing this in the near future, but other than conquering certain areas with(out) specific jobs, are there any missables?
13 Nov 22:23 2017
Basically every achievement about the First World that is not obligatory can be missed, although a walktrough can help in that. And the No Stone Unturned too, which is a pain in the ass and took me two playthroughs to get because i missed some chests
13 Nov 23:01 2017
Hmm, first world, are you talking about stuff before Dark World? And alright, I'll be following a walkthrough to ensure I miss nothing, and probably keep a separate save file to be safe.
14 Nov 0:24 2017
I actually meant the dungeons from the Floating Continent. But them are pretty much the job specific cheevs you already mentioned, aside from the chests that are on them, like the plant castle
14 Nov 0:51 2017
Ah, I see, this is coming from me, who has never played the original, just the DS remake (And never finished :P) but okies, I'll keep an eye out, thanks :D
31 May 23:22 2018
First four Cheevos worked on CHAOS translation, next 4 did not :'(
1 Jun 0:41 2018
CHAOS Translation Unlinked cause most cheevos WONT WORK with it. Using T+EngR2_AWJ+NCorlett+SoM2Freak ATM and all works so far
7 Jun 5:04 2018
What if remade the set to make all cheevos works with that best translation?
1 Aug 1:51 2018
If any dragon (color) or Onion armor achievement fail to trigger it's because you used some instant kill spells (either from spell or magic weapon). I can confirm so far that break sword and mini might cause some achieves to fail.
1 Aug 1:53 2018
This happen because using these 2 when the creature die his life remain greater than zero in memory and most achievement on this set require the life for each creature to be zero before they trigger.
26 Dec 20:17 2018
I Have never played this game before, It will be fun to run through it while getting achievements!
18 Feb 7:04 2019
Anybody playing this lately?
13 Sep 23:20 2019
For those wishing to master the game, I find this guide a great resource for the dragon/onion equipment cheevos.https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/nes/563415-final-fantasy-iii/faqs/24510
25 Sep 22:19 2019
I can't find an english ROM. Help
23 Oct 3:56 2019
After what felt like searching the entire world, I was finally able to get the last treasure needed to master this wonderful game. Cheers!
13 Nov 22:34 2019
Finally found the last treasure in Argass Castle and mastered this gem! It was certainly a fun journey.
6 Mar 2:25 2020
Is it possible to get all achievements on one run?
6 Mar 17:18 2020
Yes, but it'll require some grinding. Just make sure to not miss any miss-able chests/items.
