RetroArch not unlocking achivements

Hey, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this. I've used the RetroArch program in the past and it has worked rather well, however recently I opened it to play some games and I noticed that games are no longer unlocking achievements for me. It registers that I am online, tells me that I have 0/XX achievements unlocked, and my profile on here even says that I have played the game, however the achievements just aren't popping. Does anyone know a way to fix this?

EDIT: After reinstalling the program, I seem to have achievements for GBA working, but other consoles like the Sega Genesis aren't working properly.

What cores are you using? Not all cores work for cheevos.

What Blaze said, also update the cores if you haven't done it yet, and if it still doesn't work, enter again the login information and then restart Retroarch.

Oooh, I didn't know it was a certain core for certain ones. A lot of the GBA ones were working and I had assumed they all worked similarly. Is there a list of cores that are supported?

This list is not fully correct.
For example: Snes9x often don't unlock achievements that work fine with Snes9x 2010.

Indeed it's not. Sometimes updates and changes break core's compatibility completely or partially, like is currently the case with Gambatte and SameBoy as well. I don't know how often the list is updated, but it's the best general guideline currently.

I wanted to say, Snes9x core is a lot bugged in retroarch
