    I really need a video of someone doing this...on RALibretro this section is completely pitch black, and memorizing the level is a big pain. Maybe I'll try to setup Retroarch and see if I can turn up the brightness.

    Pro tip for both of these: Use the glowing mushrooms as reference points

    My best advice for this is to get lots of lives I used up 80 of them attempting this, then slide jump on the "walls" of this level the grass and the glowy mushrooms have geometry that you can stand on.Other than that it's just memorization.

    how exactly does this cheevo work? can i get a firefly to scout the way, kill myself and do it again in the dark?or any time i get the firefly by accident i have to leave the level and do it all over?
    RDPateau 13 Oct 2021 20:39
    i got it and can say getting the firefly to scout does not work. best way imo is to get a video of someone going through the level normaly and going along with it in the dark

    I used this video as a reference as where to go: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbRSmrDyVBE

    Recorded myself playing normally first, and then using that footage and some glowing mushrooms as reference it took around 15 lives. Don't forget to get the checkpoints.

    Oh also use sliding jump since it is more forgiving with the edges

    I recommend having Retroarch on one side of the screen and the YT video guilhermealves15 used on the other, while keeping close eye on the mushrooms and enemies as reference to where the falls are. Miserable experience, but took about 20 attempts. The sliding jump is invaluable here!

    totally without purpose, it is not possible to see a hand's breadth if you want. I recommend saving in the warp, entering the level with more than 40 lives, you can take the checkpoints. But it's still a pain in the 4ss. I'm very chadvibes, so I didn't get too angry. After the bonus checkpoint, try to keep jumping on the corner of the right wall at all costs, at the end there is a lizard and a last hole, you will see the nitro box just before. But want some good advice? I didn't get to do that, but I had the idea of ​​opening a video of a normal gameplay of the level, or recording the normal passage with the light. I really criticize, and when I'm done I'll leave my praise and criticism for this set of achievements, but in advance, disappointment.

    I opened a YouTube video of someone playing it normally, slowed it down to half speed, and just watched them play the level in small segments so I knew where the pits were. I looked at mushrooms for markers on where to jump. I also abused the ability to stand on the scenery edge at times.

    Exiting the level from the menu can be a bit of an annoyance, but you can quickly beat Air Crash using the secret exit, and save in the secret warp room. Whenever you load a file, it plops you out at the last level you exited so it will always spit you back out into the special warp room. It's mainly for convenience. If you need to, you can bring two masks with you into the warp room before you save as well so you'll have them when you load.

    Doing it like this, it wasn't all that hard. A little time consuming, sure, but not hard. With achievements like this, it's all about having a little patience. There's plenty of harder ones on the list.

    Am I the only one having trouble getting past the first firefly in the level without picking it up?
