I will try to find some values to make achievements for this game, using the ROM : Live A Live (Japan) [En by Aeon Genesis v2.0Deluxe]... but when I launch the game, It is written : [bad checksum], is It a problem ?

Posted: 21 Jun, 2016 21:13
I always wanted to play this game!
The bad checksum could be the patch, if the achievements works I think it has no problem.

Would love to see this set. Incredible game.

As long as 3 people believe in you
As long as 2
As long as one other person
He was right

For beating the last chapter with 4 3 2 and solo parties.

Maybe also one for NOT using Sundown Kid in the final chapter. Would be interesting to see how that goes since everyone uses him because that one move is so broken it isn't funny.

Wow, that escalated quickly !
Thank you for taking the time to write your ideas for achievements, I think that I'll Have a lot of work :p

Posted: 26 Jun, 2016 17:20
I had these a long while ago, was waiting for someone to start a topic for the game, that is all.

The Watanabe Achievements are:

Collapse, Won Ton Kung Fu, Never Heckle a Luchador, Incommunicado, Is He Doing Well?, Mind of Stone

May just scrap Incommunicado because it happens during the Cube's story anyway like Watanabe Sr. in Sundown's Scenario.

The 2 September, 22 years ago, a great game called Live A Live was born, and as a tribute to Live A Live here is 111 achievements !
Just a few words about them :

- Thank you to everyone who posted ideas on the forum, I did not used them all because sometimes finding values was not possible... and sometimes I just wanted to do something else :p (but I'm still open to others suggestions, this set of achievements will probably evolve)
- For the achievements where you have to guess a name, just write the name when you can, you don't need to select "END" to have the achievement, you may need to use uppercase, spaces, and maybe both !!!
- There is many "secret achievements" where you will have to guess yourself what to do, but don't worry there is clues everywhere (Title, Badge or in the description of the achievement Itself (see the list below))
-As you know the game is pretty long and I had to play and replay several times to make these achievements but I can't test all the achievements so if one of them trigger at the wrong time, or not at all please do a "bug repport"
- And I have done the achievements with this ROM : Live A Live (Japan) [En by Aeon Genesis v2.0Deluxe]


As long as one people believe in these achievements I won't lose hope !

Hi kurka, I'm really enjoying the game so far. If I find any problem I'll post here for you and other players :)

I think is wrong but I'm not sure. It triggered when I tried to use the Storehouse Key while locked in the jail cell (Ninja Quest)

If I find anything else I will update. :)

Oooops indeed It was not supposed to trigger here. Thanks for your repport the achievement will work correctly now (you can reset your achieved statut for this one if you want, It is an easy one ;) )

PS : Sorry for the bugs with the Achievements for finishing a chapter without saving the value to the saves was moving during the dialog too, now they should work.

Posted: 20 Oct, 2016 01:10
Any tips for the guess name achievements?
