You did a great job with the icons, they look pretty good.

On Master, pausing the game with Select already seems to cancel the attempt, not only if saving and exiting.

it shouldn't work like that. What happens is the game will post some popups reminding the player to submit. Master requires manual submission and that can any time holding R+L+Select. Let me know if you have any issue with this I want it to work perfectly.

For me it afterwards said "Leaderboard attempt cancelled". Is it because I submitted the score?

All cheevos work for me except the vesting ones. Agahnim worked but none others. Do I have the wrong rom, orrrr? I don't think I do since all else works?

Having yet another go at this. Every time I look at the current icon (with the lettering, no medallions) the letters look too compressed and it's visually distracting as the rest is pixel perfect.

One of these should be a better option. I'm going to stick with the close up for now, as what's happening is much more visible even in the small sizes. (48x48 / 32x32)

Here to report yet another instance of the Bested achievements not working. Playing Hardcore with RetroArch (Snes9x2010 core, which should function fine according to the RetroArch thread) on a U.S. 1.0 rom. Got through Armos and Lanmo, neither unlocked. Was super excited when I heard about RA but this is pretty frustrating :/ is there at least an explanation as to why this happens? And/or anything I can do to get the achievements?

If it requires a specific U.S. 1.0 rom rather than just any U.S. 1.0, shouldn't the game's page note the checksum/CRC32 of the rom that should be used? Seems like that would save a lot of frustration on the part of lots of players as it looks to be a common problem.

Any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated. The other achievements seem to be working fine and I'm really enjoying the experience, the nonfunctional ones are a letdown but RA is a great project and it's been a lot of fun so far.

Read the comments here and see if thats the case and maybe we could add more info at the description.

Trouble getting 'Bested' achievements to unlock? Read this!

-Only Agahnim and Ganon unlocked for me playing on RetroArch with the snes9x2010 core. All other achievements unlocked fine but not these critical cheevos.

-Found a second ROM with a different checksum and played it on the standalone RAsnes9x emulator. Everything unlocked fine. Lanmolas did take two attempts, so I reported the achievement as broken.

-Initially I suspected the problem was the original ROM and recommended people use the second ROM, because with the standalone emulator and this second ROM, I unlocked everything.

-dude1286, who curates the LttP cheevos, kindly responded to my bug report & mentioned that my ROM's (the second) checksum was different from his. His ROM's checksum is that of the original ROM I used with RetroArch, where only Agahnim and Ganon unlocked. This STRONGLY suggests that neither ROM was the problem, but rather RetroArch. RetroArch is still finnicky with RetroAchievements support as of now.

__TL;DR__ -- if you're having trouble with the 'Bested' achievements, or you're about to start playing and you want to make sure you have no problems, you should NOT play on RetroArch, only the standalone RAsnes9x emulator available in RetroAchievements' download section.

You can find your ROM's checksum in the emulator menu bar (RetroAchievements -> Get ROM checksum) and compare it to the following two checksums of both ROMs I used, both of which *should* work with the emulator, but I recommend the first. These are the corresponding filenames I have for them, but those may vary -- if the checksums match yours, however, they're the same ROM:

Legend of Zelda, The - A Link to the Past (USA).sfc
Checksum: 608c22b8ff930c62dc2de54bcd6eba72
^^^ RECOMMENDED, used and tested successfully by the curator of the LttP cheevos

Legend of Zelda, The - A Link to the Past (U) [!].smc
Checksum: 1a74468291b02729329dd1357afb45af
^^^ Should work, but try for the first one if you can.

And again, play on RetroAchievements' standalone RAsnes9x emulator! Hope this helps.
