Mastered!! Please change to 50 points to all "without hitting walls" cheevos... PLEASE!!! I needed 33 hours to master this set just because of those cheevos. Otherwise great game and great set :)

How can I do the Wrong Way Winner achievement?
Ivsucram 7 Feb 2023 00:10
@Moonuan Guarantee that you are in 1st place in the last lap with a great distance between you and second place. Stop the kart some meters before the finish line, rotate it and finish it using reverse (down + B, if I am not wrong).
Moonuan 7 Feb 2023 01:17
@Ivsucram thank so much! i've been trying for hours,I didn't think about the obvious, I tried to reverse the entire track hahahaha

Playing on Emudeck/Emulation Station it's now registering my achievements as not hardcore mode...
KimuraGracie 31 Mar 2023 01:14
I see way too many people complaining about achievements being too hard (here and for other games) and that they need to be removed or put in a different set.

People, just move on. RA is not here to hand out mastered sets for free. A little constructive criticism is fine, but flipping out over an achievement others have proven to be completable is insulting to the devs. I'm glad to see ridiculously hard achievements, especially on games like this that we've all played a billion times before. Coming up with a new challenge for such a well played game is difficult. I like when only the top tier players of a game are able to complete it. That's what a mastery is to me. It means you are a MASTER of the game, not a casual completionist. And if I can put myself amongst those ranks it feels infinitely more satisfying than breezing through a set that hundreds and hundreds of others have already done.
MGNS8M 12 Aug 2023 01:53
I'm not 10,000% behind it, but we just got Progress/Win Conditions, so I'm going to experiment by putting the only "Win" condition on the "Get Every Cup In Every Class" achievement, and I guess that means putting "Progress" on every non-challenge any-point cup-achievement(the ones for 150cc and EXTRA-cc).

As far as I know, that means you get a (might be softcore) badge for getting all of those. So if that somehow helps those who don't like the other challenge things, then good I guess.

At the moment, I'm not sure how this works. You MIGHT need to temporarily Reset Progress on at least ONE of those achievements ---- but please be aware, if you already have Trophies in-game, you can't just re-get them. You would need to delete/restart your save-file to do that. BUT that might be a fair-trade and an easier task than getting the rest, I guess.
MGNS8M 12 Aug 2023 01:59
Also I don't even know if that's "live" yet, or if regular users can even see what is considered Win/Progress, it might just be setup for a later update for all I know.

Oh... I realized how I could cause Trigger icons to restore themselves without incorrectly over-restoring themselves.

Guess I'll finally make that change, then. But as usual, if there are any major unfixable issues with it, then I will probably need to revert changes. Sorry it wasn't done sooner, but from what I tested this finally works to control Trigger a little better, so it can be done. I'll keep the first in the series the same since it was easy, though.

Mastered my favorite Mario Kart game.

The hardest cheevo in my opinion is the Koopa Troopa Beach T.T. That ramp is evil.

The "Walls" cheevos are tricky, but the RETRY option makes it fair.

Good set.
marshm8low 16 Jan 2024 21:30
yes, it's an excellent set rightnow, thank you very much!
rhas777 19 Jan 2024 21:29
Suggestion:

Touch the Green Thwomp in Bowser's Castle and finish first place

Spamtec 26 Jan 2024 21:34
walls achievements are still just as boring and tedious of an RNG farm as they ever were. im good with this set thanks
patodesvirtuado 4 Feb 2024 04:18
The achievements are fair for the most part, but the achievements "do a championship without touching the wall" are pretty stupid in this type of game that was made to be chaos. racing track with bridges and paths with space for 2 karts, 7 cpus using items, often without going through the box, leaving a banana or a fake box in the space without being able to dodge, that is when someone doesn't come and hit you, making you dependent from RNG. This isn't fun at all and ends up making the game tiring, making you hate the game in the end.
