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?

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.

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.

Very fun set. Only complaint is that it seems strange that only game type 1 was used. Otherwise felt perfect. Mastered.

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.

I think I found a bug with the 'Single Life' leaderboard. The 'Single Life' leaderboard attempt starts fine, but when loosing my first life I get 'single life leaderboard attempt cancelled.'

If I keep playing that same round until I loose my last life...the regular Multi-life leaderboard submits fine. Any help is appreciated. Using RA v.1.9.1 ROM hash is matching. Tested with newest 'Stella' & newest 'Stella 2014' cores

Reset Score or Reset Progress?

It's not the best wording. Resetting your score means having the score roll over. After you get the maximum score, it goes back to 0, thus resetting it.
