This game achievements supports 2-players (80% support)

For playing in hard difficulty, you need to change the MVS support to AES support in Settings>Emulation>Force Neo Geo mode.

Will there be a special MAME for RetroAchievements?

@rabbids4eva i don't know, ralibreto already supports cps1, cps2 and neo geo, but i'm not sure cps1 and cps2 are 100%.

@TOPIC
I've created 34 achievements for this game, 2 are unofficial only because i still need to test the achievements, and the libretro neo geo support is new, so there may be exploits. Core achievements have been tested, so they work.

I tried to avoid creating repetitive achievements and stressing achievements (eg: beating stage 5 without dying; it's stressing and annoying because you would need to reach all the way back to stage 5 if you failed)

I also made this set anti-freebies, by not giving 10=> achievement points for simple achievements as clearing a stage on a normal way. I don't know, maybe i'll need to increase points a bit, but isn't a big problem.
For playing in hard difficulty, you need to change the MVS support to AES support in Settings>Emulation>Force Neo Geo mode, on your emulator.

Seria bom cancelar o high score apos usar uma ficha extra.

hi, I´have problems loading this game. I´m using Retroarch 1.7.2 with FBAlpha core and a rom for FBA 0.2.97.42. It displays an error, it says "failed to load content"

I only have problems with Metal Slug X and Street Fighter III , the other arcades are working ok with the achievements.

Could somebody please send me a pm and let me know where to find these two roms? (if the problems are the roms)

thanks

Did you add in neogeo.zip (bios) as well?

Thank you DonCosmo, I think it was the solution It works putting neogeo.zip in the roms folder, I think it was a bios problem. Street Fighter 3 still doesn't work but I'll check it later.

Congrats Zxmega for using only 1 continue (I used "only" 42), a long time without playing Metal Slug. And for setting the achievements for this great game . A leaderboard with less continues as a suggestion (if it is technically possible) it would be challenging to reduce the continues

If u enable AES mode u can change to easy and are limited to 5 continues. Set was made for Aes mode. If u have mame neogeo .zip it wont switch modes. Neogeo .zip made for fba is needed

Thanks LootusMaximus, I replaced the file. I think it was too hard in the MVS mode.
