that would be nice <3
TeddyWestside 4 Jan 2022 07:03
The trigger flag is applied to most of the challenges, like "Ultra Skill, "On the Down Low" etc, so that you know if you have failed them. Most achievements will unlock at the tally screen, unless they're for doing in game feats like making tetrises or multi-squares. If you run into any issues with the achievements or the leaderboards, please let me know.
MrDynamite 4 Jan 2022 15:47
only the wonders are missing, but I know you need more than 2 months to get all 7 Wonders. Otherwise thanks for the set <3
Erodion 5 Jan 2022 14:20
Ultra Instinct appears to be not compatible with mupen64plus, on retroarch. Maybe i need to tick some option on the emulator?The other alternative emulator on retroarch its parallel, wich doesnt support this achievement either.
sllide 5 Jan 2022 14:28
man, the small delay after a hard drop is messing with me.
TeddyWestside 5 Jan 2022 14:52
Do you have the challenge indicator on/trigger flag showing in the corner? I can take another look at the achievement to see if I can find an issue. As to the delay, yeah, they're super generous with allowing you to rotate after your tetronimo is down. Even with hard drops.
Erodion 5 Jan 2022 14:57
It says at the start "Could not activate achievement 190373 "Ultra Instinct": Invalid condition type"
TeddyWestside 5 Jan 2022 15:05
Oh, it's the only achievement in the list that uses the "ResetNextIf" flag, that explains it. For it to work, your Retroarch version needs to be 1.9.3 or greater I think. Here's further reading on it: https://docs.retroachievements.org/FAQ/#why-do-i-get-a-message-that-some-achievements-are-unsupported
Erodion 5 Jan 2022 22:11
Ok, thanks. I thought retroarch updated when you update the cores or something.
MrDynamite 8 Jan 2022 11:30
What about the 7 Wonders Achievements? Are they still coming or would it take too long because of the game itself? :)
TeddyWestside 28 Jan 2022 05:04
The problem with the Parallel core should be fixed now. So you're able to use whichever you prefer. The Wonders achievements are up for debate. I can't "trick" the memory in this game to increase line clears - I had to play through. I got a couple of the Wonders unlocked and it just seems to be bitflags. The problem isn't in making them, it's more: is it reasonable to ask a player to play hundreds of hours of Tetris in order to master the game?
MrDynamite 29 Jan 2022 10:16
@TeddyWests In fact, I had once unlocked all the Wonders. But my memory crashed at some point, by a hint "You have unlocked a Secret Cheat". I had reset the game more often because I thought I could cheese something like that but the game killed my savegame. Nevertheless, thank you very much for the answer to my question :) I deliberately waited to see if the Wonders achievements would come, because I think that from Mayan to Celtic are brought relatively quickly. From Africa it takes a lot longer. Japan and Russia are going to be fierce!

Mastered! That was a fun set.
AaronTruitt 4 Sep 2022 13:37
Fun set! This was the most played multiplayer Tetris in my household... The four player mode was really fun. I ended up speedrunning several categories of this game in 2020. The achievements were pretty easy, but I enjoyed coming back to this game.
JaclynLauren 16 Jan 2023 01:55
Weird that there isn't a 7 wonders achievement. It's essentially how you "beat the game"
Sutarion 29 Aug 2023 11:44
All cheat codes are in all caps, so HALUCI and AI2EZ4U? Have an uppercase i in them, not a lower case L.
Beulu79 7 Sep 2023 17:12
Not the best Tetris I've played... Didn't find how to play Ultra mode...
xcommander 15 Sep 2023 09:54
@Beulu79: Choose one player, select your name, press A and you can then choose the game mode (marathon is default) and the difficulty of your opponent.
