https://retroachievements.org/achievement/81648 This should be marked/listed as missable.
Damniel 5 Feb 2022 20:32
in Spanish please, that the game did not only appear in English.
Xeishiki 3 May 2022 01:42
I think I have to give up on this achievement list. I've run the first reactor about seven times now. Three yesterday and four today, and no matter how much time I have left over 7:45, the achievement just won't pop for me. If this first one is giving me this much heartache, I can only imagine what the others will do to me. Also, I've tried using other roms of FF7, but only one says I have a trophy list. And that is the one giving me so much trouble.
bbkdavis 5 May 2022 02:03
Did you try running from the battles? I wasn’t able to get it until I did that. Just hold the L1 and R1 buttons as the random encounter begins. I hit 2 encounters, ran from both and made the time no problem. Also make sure to hold the run button when out of combat.
Xeishiki 5 May 2022 02:23
I did finally manage to get it to work. Took a bit to do. Tried three more scph5501 downloads. One or two more FF7 roms. Finally, in a hail mary, tried one of my img files of FF7, which said had no achievements. Found an online .cue generator, made a cue for img file, and voila, finally worked for me. I can now get achievements.
Elbody 5 Jun 2022 17:42
Mastered, a lovely set, nothing too horribly dificult, you get most of the stuff in the game, I even learned things I didn't knew about the game. Very recomended!
rlxldk 24 Aug 2022 19:24
This set is good, but not for 200% All cheevos are good one and interesting, until Tifa and Cait Sith limits and this freaking snowboarding mini game. THIS IS TOTALLY BLOODY HELL. Last 6 cheevos is just a silly time waste...
If you don't bother with 200 % ,this set is OK. But if you want 200% , you are warned. That's "wheel" limits and snowboard will fck your brain, like they do it with my...
rlxldk 26 Aug 2022 19:44
Update: I finally mastered it and my opinion not change, I able to complite Tifa and Cait limits cheevos only with pausing retroarch, and done snowboard mini game only with lowering "Overclock CPU" to 20%. I don't like the way how I did it but.. Whatever -_-
ChronoGear 26 Aug 2022 20:52
Probably shouldn't admit to cheating in comments lol
Elbody 26 Aug 2022 21:02
hm, the snowboarding cheevos are extremely free, are you sure you know how to hard turn by pressing r1? Even the 90 point gold saucer ones don't take more than a couple of attempts, really confused as to why is it was so tough for you.
AngeloLeonhart 26 Aug 2022 22:36
Changing emulator options is necessary on some achievements, I don't consider as cheating. "Go Big or Go Home" on Final Fantasy VIII requires an ABSURD amount of RNG and timing, since PSX loads like ass you have to change Disc Speed reading on RetroArch just to have a slight chance of saving seconds to get one of multiple conditions to get the achievement. You can try for yourselves, I ain't making this up. https://retroachievements.org/achievement/96419
ChronoGear 26 Aug 2022 22:58
Changing disc speed accounts for the emulator's bad load times to make that one specific achievement doable. Changing an emulator setting to force a game to run in slow motion to make a perfectly doable achievement easier for you is definitely cheating. People did that for Super Mario RPG's 100 super jumps and had their achievement reset.
Warbler 27 Aug 2022 21:50
Have done the mainline FF games (I-IX) and the snowboarding minigame cheevos were ok, completing each 90 point cheevo within 5-10 minutes. Echoing what Elbody said, did you know that you can hard turn using L1 and R1?
rlxldk 29 Aug 2022 06:07
I know about L1 and R1 turns, you are good at this mini game, I'm bad. What else to discuss here? I play on phone and maybe this is problem. I complete it in my way and I don't consider it as cheat. Shitty cheevos regards shitty methods. I don't have anything to add here
AntonioFNN 23 Sep 2022 23:51
An excellent set, everything worked fine. 3 cds covered with many challenges
Grandirus 3 Nov 2022 03:40
I just tryed an ISO with "Spirit bug fix" applyed and works fine. The ISO stills reconized by Retroachiements.
From RomHacking:
"As the name says, this patch fixes a bug with the Spirit value, which is used to reduce magic damage through the global Magic Defense parameter you can see in the Status screen. Magic Defense is supposed to be your character’s Spirit and the magic defense from the armor equipped. For some reason, the game totally ignores the latter value – returning a simple 0 – and only uses Spirit."
rfl0wpr 8 Jan 2023 18:05
Would be nice Iif these RetroAchievements worked both with Duckstation or RetroArch PCSX ReArmed [core]

With Final Fantasy VII (USA) [NTSC] in .ISO or .PBP formats
deiradinn 1 Feb 2023 06:28
The list is more for people who speedrun, exploit, or their 10th time playing looking to do uncommon things. I think you'll alienate a lot of new ones but some of these I'm glad are there, others ... not so much.
Catmadman 4 Mar 2023 00:24
We need the "date with Barret" achievement and "master of the subjects" achievement
RossWyatt 9 Mar 2023 07:50
All he did was slow the game down to make an achievement easier, it's no big deal. If this was TrueAchievements, that method would be a valuable guide that gets upvotes and everyone would be doing it.
