    Whats the point then in being able to save but not load? Why is that in the description besides confusing people? Just say to not be able to save or something, so people don't need to open tickets, thinking they can load later, confused, etc, then everyone will know for sure they can't load the game for this cheevo and has to be in one go. Such dumb descriptions on this game's cheevos, they fixed some that I pointed at but I see it still happens, some people just don't learn I guess...

    Guys you can load and save, you just aren't allowed to close/reset the emulator. Saving wouldn't make sense otherwise.

    Some help as example:
    splintercell90 19 Mar 2024 16:13
    does it have to be completed in one session?
    rlxldk 19 Mar 2024 16:31
    @splintercell90 absolutely yes. I even dont enter to the emulator menu
    Xziled 29 Mar 2024 22:59
    Seriously, no emulation restart? magnum banned? it is a gun y'know.
    No wonder why this was so hard to get, I got it in two runs, not actually mad since I got another epilogue, but one got ruined from carlos grenade gift.

    It says that you cannot equip any other weapons, does that mean they can still be picked up? I am trying to get all files at the same time as doing this but it seems like I cannot get the operation instruction without picking up the Mine Thrower.

    I did it in the Duckstation emulator, I leave you my game if it serves as a guide:
    Raulinho 19 May 2024 08:01
    it does not work. I have followed the steps and I have not used or taken any weapon other than the initial pistol, not even with Carlos, who I have equipped the pistol with and I have not even used it. duckstation gives a lot of problems with the achievements of several games, it is very frustrating.
    rlxldk 19 May 2024 12:30
    I recommend to use PCSX ReArmed core. I use this core about 2 years and never have any problems with getting cheevos, IF all requirements are correctly done. Carlos can use anything, its doesn't matter. Are you do a fresh game? On hard ? Are you save\load any game ? Did you choose "Run away"from nemesis in the end ? Magnum ending prevent getting this cheevo. If all your doings are correct, well, i recommend to try a different emulator or core
    Siniestro 19 May 2024 12:48
    It's important to finish the game in one session, I think it doesn't matter if you save the game, so if you die you can restart from that point, but you should finish the game in one session. That was my mistake and that's why I didn't get the achievement on my first try.
    rlxldk 19 May 2024 14:37
    Yep, if you save and close emulator, load doesn't help. Its a full focus cheevo
    Raulinho 19 May 2024 17:26
    I do everything you have described, I do not use the magnum at the end of the game, I do it in a new game from 0 without having the mercenaries unlocked and without picking up or smelling any weapon other than the initial pistol.

    but surely it will be about doing it all in one session. This morning I did it but I had to stop for a while and then I went back to it, maybe that's why.

    The problem with Retroarch is that it doesn't have (or I don't see it) a turbo button, in Duckstation I skip all the cutscenes, opening doors, etc. with that turbo and it becomes much more enjoyable, having to play the game a lot sometimes for the topic of epilogues and so on.

    But on the other hand, the retroarch turbo button at least doesn't work the same for me, it doesn't go at the speed of duckstation and I don't know why.

    I would also have to do it in retroarch and in one session so as not to have problems, supposedly xd.

    Thank you both for answer.
    rlxldk 19 May 2024 18:25
    You mean "Turbo fire" or "Fast forward" ? Anyway, Retroarch have both of these functions. If you will try RA, use PCSX ReArmed core.
    Raulinho 19 May 2024 18:49
    I was referring to fast forward yes, sorry xd.

    I'll try it with pcsx rearmed. thank you very much partner.
    rlxldk 20 May 2024 09:32
    Yes, retroarch have a fast forward function. You even can assign this function on preferable button. i use Dualshock 4 sensor panel button for this. Realy comfortable. First, you need adjust settings, then download core, and play. Its a little bit complicated but nothing serious
