Losing, not "loosing" ;)

Game score resets after 99,990

Classic game; always a plus in RA.
18 Apr 14:39 2019
Great add ons for this set. Should be able to knock these out tonight. Thanks!
19 Apr 14:42 2019
Just played this to get the score reset and double twist score flip. Neither of them triggered.
20 Apr 15:54 2019
Thanks for cheevo!
22 Apr 14:22 2019
Score Resets are savestate protected - you NEED to do it without savestate loading.
22 Apr 15:32 2019
Don't even know what a savestate is. I answered you in the ticket. Thanks!

Same as pittstlrs95 here. Reset the score twice with 9 lives (on hardcore mode - i.e., no save state) and the achievement did not pop up.
7 May 1:36 2019
Yes, there's a problem with the achievement "Score Rest" (without condition of number of lives). Strangely, the achievement asking to do it with more than 4 lives, him, unlocked ...
12 May 1:34 2019
I too earned everything except "Score Reset". Tried it a second time and rolled the score with 1 life left and it still didn't pop. Anyone know how to get it to trigger?
9 Dec 5:47 2019
Fun set, this was the first game i ever had as a kid in the eighties. A shame that everything can be done in gametype one. Made it a bit on the easy side. And imho 4 pacifist cheevos is a bit much.
8 Jan 0:34 2020
That was a lot of fun. Short and sweet. Thank you.
25 Feb 23:10 2020
Thanks for building this one. It was fun
22 Mar 4:29 2020
Easy way to get the pacifist cheevos - just keep resetting until all the asteroids are moving in the same direction, then just stay away from them.

Great classic! Very nice achievements, deividokop!
31 May 6:20 2020
mastered - very nice, very quick. a proper set. a ton easier if you never move
25 Sep 10:39 2020
Very fun set. Only complaint is that it seems strange that only game type 1 was used. Otherwise felt perfect. Mastered.
26 Sep 17:53 2020
Score reset still not working, I've tried many times, all without savestates and it doesn't pop up. I'd like to master it.
