Hi MarvellousDazza! I played using Retroarch with the default emulator it suggests (I guess Mupen64Plus), but I had to change the plugin in the Core Options menu. If I recall correctly there are 3 available plugins and all but the default one worked.
MarvellousDazza 25 Sep 2023 10:05
Thank you mate. Not sure what I actually changed, I was messing about with all the Core settings and eventually it worked! Don’t really understand what I’m doing half the time on RetroArch haha.

So far I’ve managed to get 50 out of 51 achievements. The perfect Mew achievement is the only one left, not sure I’m gonna attempt this too much because it’s frustrating. Like most people have said on here, this achievement set is actually quite enjoyable besides that one Mew achievement.

Fun game though!
Rexus7 28 Sep 2023 03:24
@MarvellousDazza, I'm having the same problem, what did you do to fix it?
zomblified 16 Oct 2023 20:35
Mastered in 4:47, perfect mew achievement really good addition so this set isn't too easy to master.
terarded 29 Oct 2023 21:17
If you're having trouble selecting photos for Oak after the tutorial here's how to fix it:

1. Go to the quick menu for the game and press core options (Mupen64Plus-Next core)
2. Change RDP Plugin to Angrylion
3. Change RSP Plugin to CXD4
4. Completely close retroarch and restart. Restarting the game wasn't enough for me. You'll notice when its using the new settings the graphics will be noticeably worse.

The Mew achievement might not be earnable in this state i don't know i don't plan to go for it but there seems to be issues with it under certain circumstances.

None of this is my information just making a simple compilation based on all the comments above.
TrucyStar 14 Nov 2023 04:15
Mastered! Had a fun time reliving my childhood with this one, had no idea Muk was ever in the game lol
McFlibbits 2 Dec 2023 03:13
I don't think Professor Oak has ever stepped foot In a photography school
reypacino 11 Dec 2023 21:36
@Terarded

Just wanted to say thank you for comment. I was freaking out because for some reason the game never was able to recognize a proper picture and gave per default every photo 210 points in size and therefore too small (even though Pokemon filled up the photo). Your fix helped me here.
Rexus7 14 Dec 2023 17:49
Big props for collating that information. I was confused by the other posts. Now I've just got to figure how to set those settings as a profile for snap only since it doesn't run some of the other games well with those settings.

If you don't hate Mew after mastering this one, I envy you
BBBigezzz 15 Feb 2024 22:21
Mastered! The mew achievement was the last one of course but it wasnt to bad when you found the technique. Had fun with this classic
xxDMKxx 17 Feb 2024 03:25
Mastered! Fun set ran it with the wife, she enjoyed the ride besides the mew.. she had to call in big daddy to take it home for 10 000 Lego!!
faykhet 4 Mar 2024 07:11
This was a perfect set for this game and Mew is the worst Pokemon ever created thank you
soundogg 10 Mar 2024 08:44
Any tips for the high score challenges?
oxitran 16 Mar 2024 15:28
@soundogg for the squirtle achievement, right at the start of the canyon you can do some crazy placement manipulation to get an insane score. There is a youtube video for it, and probably the rest too.
Chows 21 Mar 2024 01:38
After replaying this game, I've come to realize that it is EXTREMELY SHORT! Honestly I was very surprised that I beat it in under two hours.

If you guys have trouble with your emulation, change these settings:
-RDP Plugin to Angrylion
-CPU Core to Dynarec

These changes will let you submit pictures to Professor Oak, but you will NOT be able to submit pictures of the pokemon signs until you discover the secret in the second to last level.

To unlock the ability to take pictures of signs, launch the squirtle at the end of the valley stage into the mankey by waiting until its at the right angle and throwing a pester ball at it. Then, when you're near the entrance to the pathway, hit the mankey into the button with another pester ball. You will meet with professor oak where he will add pokemon signs to his entries.

I'd say going for the score achievements after you get the pokeflute will make things so much easier, because it will make the pokemon stationary as well as getting them to face you.

I left some tips on the Mew achievement in that achievement's thread.

Very fun set to do, and also very beginner friendly (Minus the mew achievement, but even that one wasn't too bad compared to other sets). Had a lot of fun with this one!
Chows 21 Mar 2024 01:42
Forgot to mention that I'm hoping that someone releases a "Perfect Score" set or something along those lines, because that would be fun to do as well!
Breembin 23 Mar 2024 00:44
Mastered! This game is relatively short, but if you're going for the Mew photo it'll definitely take a lot of time and patience (and luck). Mew aside, this was a very fun set and taught me things I didn't know about the game when I played it as a kid.
ChaosXeloc 6 Apr 2024 22:06
Mastered! I'd wanted to play this game for over 20 years, but every time I tried I couldn't get it to work, so this was my first real playthrough thanks to the comments here about emulator settings! I called upon ancient knowledge from Pokemon manuals I had read when I was probably less than 8 years old in order to progress through this game, and even then a couple of the later Pokemon eluded me without a guide.

The set was fun, even including the Mew achievement (as difficult as it felt), as long as I just tried to take pictures for only ~30 minutes each day to avoid frustration. It was very smart to have point challenges both for courses and specific Pokemon, and it was the right complement for a short and sweet game. I'm surprised it took so many years to get any sort of official follow-up! Thanks again.

I'm having trouble moving the camera's focus, for example, when I enter the level to take photos, the Z Button normally activates the camera but I can't make it move so I can focus on any Pokemon, I'm playing on RAP64, I've already tested it on retroarch but the same problem persists.
