Protip: barrels are more likely to roll down a ladder if the joystick is pointed towards them, with the odds increasing on each difficulty. At Level 4, this gives a 75% chance.

Guys, the sound of this game is also bugged for you guys, no sound comes out when Mario jumps on the barrels as I correct this

You can't use any of the MAME cores in RetroArch, none of the achievements are supported. You have to use the FinalBurn Neo core, which speeds the game up faster than the arcade, FYI

If you don't get certain sound effects, you need to be sure that you have the fbneo/samples/dkong.zip file in your system folder for RetroArch or RALibretro
