Okay, the 2016 translation should be easy to get working. The second byte of the text pointers is slightly different, so I just have to add alts for those and it'll be fully functional. I'll post here when I'm done...

I thought I got everything for certain, but using the Memory Inspector suggests that I missed 3 things: Something in Kazus at 0x6041 Bit 5, Something in Gisahl at 0x6048 Bit 3, and Something in Fargabaad at 0x606a Bit 3...

I triple checked these areas with maps, and still no luck finding these 3. Normally, I wouldn't mind playing the game again for this achievement, But I find it a bit pointless because they're all in areas that are revisitable.

The Kazus one is evil. I only just recently added it, actually. Check around the tavern.

Oh dang, that one was pretty sneaky indeed. And I found the others, too. Turns out they were right in my face the whole time... I feel dumb now. D: But with that, I finally got FF3 Mastered! Thanks for the set, man. It was a lot fun, I appreciate it!

For some reason the Onion Equipments and the Red Dragon achievements are not triggering for me, even though the other ones(I deleted my Wind Crystal achiev) are working fine

Another great RPG classic

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

Olafur
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
Paggi
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
Olafur
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
Paggi
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
Olafur
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

First four Cheevos worked on CHAOS translation, next 4 did not :'(

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
JAM
What if remade the set to make all cheevos works with that best translation?

Altomar
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
Altomar
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.
