Nice two achievements. Ganon nearly messed me up. But if you play it safe, always get fairys, only the beginning and posssibly Ganon can be an issue.

So, do we not get badges for mastering these for our profiles?
15 Mar 2020
10:34
I think there has to be a minimum of 6, maybe 7 achievements for a badge to appear.
15 Mar 2020

Maybe I can add no-damage sword button-less boss achievements in the future to the set.
15 Mar 2020
10:37
Those would require beating the bosses the way you played the game for these 2 achievements (without using the sword button) and using other ways to fight the bosses & beating them without damage.

those are all very good ideas. i didnt know about the minimum requirements. good job all around, though.
15 Mar 2020

Yeah I think I'll add those soonish after I'm done with the set for the 3 heart Link's Awakening DX hack I've been working on in my (lately very limited) free time.

Nice. Love Links Awakening. ill keep an eye out!
15 Mar 2020

Thanks. Yeah lots of testing still needed for that. I uploaded like 55 achievements so far I made starting back in 2017 and will leave them as unofficial until they're all tested and I can figure out if I can salvage my no-damage dungeon achievements

When I last tested the no-damage Tail Cave achievement, I noticed taking stairs would periodically cause the health flag to change & trigger the reset that made getting it null & void.

I hope to base it on i-frames so I can save it rather than deleting all my hard work for it and I think the Bottle Grotto one that I think I also made.

does it have to be just one move or can i use saves?
20 May 2020

I think you can save so you don't have to do it in 1 try, but don't quote me on that (I never tested it with a save). I'm pretty sure the value of the counter for how many times you use your sword is stored when you save the game.

this achievement needs to be done in one move or can i save and can i use items? items with "bumerang, magic rod ..."
29 Jun 2020
19:00
and i need to know how to glitch?
29 Jun 2020
20:11
Like I already said, you can save but if you use the sword it will remember that you did so you need to do it without ever using a sword (don't press the B button) before or after saving.
29 Jun 2020
20:12
Also you can and should use your other items and you can use Pegasus Boots dash attacks with the sword, but avoid ever pressing the B button. No glitches necessary.
