Wait, what happened? A bunch of achievements popped on a ROM load for you?
I hadn't heard anything about these popping on Romload.
:(
Well, you can always delete them from your progress. Are they popping every time? I may need your save file to see if it happens to me too.

I think I didn't load it properly? you know when the memory inspector shows nothing etc? 4 of them are for items I have equipt lol. and 1 was for the auto win and other for sanctuary 1. Sucks but not going to grind for those weapons again :p

Ah yeah. I know what you mean. That's a bug that we can't do much about I guess.

Cool achievement set! It's been a long time since I last played this so stuff like "Who Needs Courage?" was driving me nuts until I figured out what to do. :)

Question: several story based achievements didn't pop for me. I'm new to the forums and new-ish to the site - is it more helpful to you if I report bugs on the individual achievement pages or should I just list them all here?

I recommend using the "Report Broken Achievements" feature in the emulator, under the RetroAchievements tab. That's how I find out about bugs and contact people who have had problems with the cheevers that I've made.

Created rich presence because most of the time when the RP was glitching out, it was because people were switching to Earthbound. I find the glitch doesn't happen if the game switched to has RP, so this should fix some of the eyesores. It tracks each party member's names and levels, which I think is pretty cool.

Please note: Many of these achievements rely on text pointers so they can trigger at certain points in a dialog tree. As such, they are not guaranteed to function when using translation patches.

I have made the following changes:

The following achievements have been modified so they trigger if using the "Talk" or "Check" menu options (previously, they only triggered when using the L button):
*
*
*
*
*

The following achievements no longer require Jeff be the third member of the party. Additionally, I and IV will now work if the item being converted is in Jeff's 11th inventory slot:
*
*
*
*

The following achievements have been modified so they will trigger if you tell your mother No and talk to her again:
*
*

This achievement will now trigger if unsuccessful the first time:
*

This achievement will now trigger if one or more party members is dead:
*

This achievement now allows a larger valid area where it can be triggered:
*

This achievement will no longer trigger during the transition from Ness/Paula to Jeff if the user recently used an item:
*

This achievement was modified to watch the script pointer instead of the character position, which could vary slightly depending on where the event was started.
*

This achievement was modified to watch the script pointer instead of a complex set of transitions on an address that's clearly used for more than this achievement:
*

This achievement will no longer trigger when resetting the game:
*

This achievement will no longer trigger if leaving the cave before all five guardians are defeated:
*

This achievement will now trigger if the manager is paid without first talking to the band:
*

This achievement will now trigger if the user is rapidly pressing the A button when it should pop:
*

This achievement will no longer trigger if a character is taking damage but is not mortally wounded and another character or enemy takes more damage than the wounded character's remaining health:
*

This achievement will no longer trigger if you try to escort the Dungeon Man back into the pyramid.
*

This achievement will no longer trigger when Carbon Dog transforms to Diamond Dog if you arrive diamondized.
*

This achievement will now trigger if the player has talked to anyone other than the boy out front of Polestar before parting ways with Paula:
*

This achievement will now trigger if you talk to the maid on the way to the Clumsy Robot.
*

This achievement will now trigger if you have recently talked to someone.
*

This achievement will no longer trigger if the Bracer of Kings ends up in the 11th slot of Poo's inventory:
*

The titles of the following achievements have been changed to title-case:
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*
*

The descriptions of the following achievements have been changed to make the requirements more clear:

So I loaded an 'Earthbound (U).smc' ROM file in RetroArch for Android and it didn't pull up any achievements. It did not even show up in my my history on my page. There is nothing listed stating you need anything special for this. What gives?

For any of the emulators I've used (I haven't checked out RetroArch yet, but for all the others), sometimes there's an error loading the first rom after you open the emulator. Often, just reloading the same rom will get the list to load properly.

If that's doesn't work, what's the MD5 of the rom you're using? It's possible the checksum isn't linked to the game.

Well I reloaded it. Same result. Gonna try to find a different one.

So after trying several times, all the sites I could find seem to all have the same ROM. So if the achievements will not work with the most common ROM, there is a problem.

EDIT: Okay I got it finally. It specifically *has* to be "Earthbound (USA).sfc". The other ROMS do not load the achievements.

To be honest the fewest photos achievement is beyond sadistic, not only it's impossible to get it for new players without getting spoiled, but you can't do this one without a proper guide to avoid triggers area. The rest of the set is really well done and imaginative, but this one feels really dumb to me...
