I think an achievement for getting 105% would be a good one.

For those who don't know, on the file select screen before starting a new game hit L,R,R,L,R,R,L,R,L,R and then enter TUFST as your name. This will make the game harder by removing all of the DK barrels and checkpoint and allows you to get 105% instead of just 103%.

Hopefully it works.
I still want to add flawless boss fight cheevs to this game, but I know it'll be a pain and I'm always busy with something.

Nice work Brian! Great turnaround for a great idea - this is exactly what RA is all about. Nice!! :)

No damage boss cheevs(minus Squirt which can't kill a single monkey) plus Any%, 103% and 105% leaderboards are all available. Redid/finished badges.
This game should be completed.

Note: 105% is only obtained by completing everything in the game using the cheat TUFST (short for 'toughest') to make the game much harder. The cheat must be entered BEFORE making a new save, not over an existing one. The effects and results are different.

Cheat Codes:
At the game select screen, highlight the slot you wish to use and press L, R, R, L, R, R, L, R, L, R and a screen will appear where you can enter the "TUFST" code.

=> If entered before continuing a saved game, all halfway barrels will be removed and replaced by a banana bunch. The effect will be temporary.
=> If entered before starting a new game, all halfway barrels will be removed and replaced by a banana bunch AND all DK barrels except 4 of them (for the locations of those 4 barrels, see below) will be removed.
The effects will be permanent. After the whole game completion, the score will be 105% instead of 103% (the 104th and 105th percents are added at the same time as the 103rd one when you visit Wrinkly with all 15 banana birds).

1. In the very first Bonus Room of the level 5-2 (Tearaway Toboggan). Note : it is actually possible to pass this Bonus room with only 1 Kong.

2. In level 6-4 (Pot Hole Panic), near the propulsion barrel allowing to exit the second subterranean pool.

3. In level 4-3 (Swoopy Salvo), inside the bonus room that you access by leaping on birds before the “N” letter. The barrel is required to pass this bonus room.

4. In level 3-4 (Blazing Bazukas), at the very beginning, when you follow the horizontal rope back to the left.

Hello guys, I just noticed that Squirt's No-Damage achievement is missing. Every other boss seems to be included except for him. :o

Posted: 25 Feb, 2014 01:55
It's not missing :P
There's no way to get hit from Squirt without dying, so beating him normally is the same as beating him without getting hit. Which makes adding a no-hit achievement pointless. :)

LOL, fair enough.

King of Kong - beat the game with 105% completion in under 5 hours and 15 minutes.

Doing any faster than Cranky's all time greats time of 5:15 doesn't unlock anything in-game that isn't shown with the normal 105% completion, sadly, but it should be one of the ultimate achievements for this game, i think.

Added a speedrun cheev I forgot to add a while back.

Did not record the following achievements, Defeat Kaos without taking damage, Defeat Barbs without taking damage, Defeat Kaos and Baron K.Roolenstein without taking damage, Defeat Baron K.Roolenstein in the Knautilus without taking damage: - I think I'm using a European ROM. Had identical problem with Final Fighter 2 game where the ROM was Japanese, I used an American ROM and problem solved. I think you should warn that the achievements only worked with American ROMs. It's another way Hardcore lost to me, if I could go on like this I will not go up in rank :(

Always start with the American version as long as it is not stated otherwise. You could still try another version and rename your save file to see if the achievements will still unlock or if you get them by reaching the necessary conditions again. Otherwise the only option is to start over and save in front of the first missing achievement and test various other versions (but in this case of DKC 3 the American should work File/Rom Information = NTSC 1.0 CRC 448EEC19).

You are right with the warning. A lot of people complain about users writing that achievements are broken, but the guide doesn't tell you even the general things about using the American version or versions (in case there are multiple different ones like e.g. Kirby's Adventure) first, switching to others with renaming the save files, figuring out the Checksum or what it is and making sure that the connection was established with the page or how to fix upcoming issues before encountering those experiences with not unlocking achievements. The FAQ should be updated with those information by a native speaker in simple English.

Some of the RAM is similar on Japanese, so I thought it would be fine to allow it, but I didn't know some of it wasn't. I couldn't have known without testing each achievement on every region.
It's a good idea to just play every game in NTSC (U) around here.
