The Sunken Treasure manual unlocks have been awarded. My sincere apologies for the screw up with that achievement. I realize that it prevented a few people from being very early remasters. Fortunately all of the people effected are still in the first 10. I realize that my error deprived some people of what they were deliberately working for and I'm truly sorry about that. Issues are impossible to completely avoid, but my goal is to minimize them as much as I possibly can so that I don't waste any player time through faulty code. Everyone was very gracious about this and I truly appreciate it. I hope you all enjoyed the new achievements and set despite the issue.
Kinlaien 16 Feb 2024 00:53
Thank you for the amount of effort you put into your sets and how fast you are to respond to issues. While you should not have to apologize at all since you do not owe a single one of us anything, I greatly appreciate how empathetic you are to us when inevitable issues do arise. There are quite a few sets with open tickets that go weeks and months at a time without being resolved, as well as Devs that slap a done sticker on a set and move on, ignoring any sort of player feedback stemming from the achievements in their set. Again, thank you for making RA that much better by being awesome.
Poefred 16 Feb 2024 00:56
Ohey I didn't notice the specific party achievements were removed. I was initially scared at how much harder this set seemed to have gotten but those being removed makes the game so much more playable for me so maybe I will actually go for 'em all eventually. Great balancing on fleshing out this set, always seemed a bit bare before.
suspect15 16 Feb 2024 02:59
Poefred, yea we thought it was very important for players to have as much party flexibility as possible and made the new boss challenges party agnostic. The set is not especially difficult, so definitely don't let that intimidate you. Even the 'no optional chest' achievement has a pretty nice feature that will tell you if a chest is safe to open or not.
Kruzer 16 Feb 2024 03:14
Great game and newly revised achievements for it! Thank you for the contribution @suspect15 !
Poefred 16 Feb 2024 05:02
I'm mostly just intimidated by most final fantasy games in general tbh haha. But I've been trying to break out of my comfort zone and git gud at 'em. Rad sets like this definitely help, I appreciate the work you do~
jroe206535 16 Feb 2024 23:02
Ok, this was a pretty fun revision. I was hesitant about the challenge run at first, but it turned out to be a fun little run with a party I've never used before. (Black Belts are stupid strong, holy...) Also the fact that you can go back after the challenge run and collect all of the treasure was super convenient. And the chest tracker was really neat and takes away a lot of the anxiety of grabbing something on accident.

Overall, had a very enjoyable time thank you for the work!
vintageclassicgamer 16 Feb 2024 23:29
Using black belts are the only way to go. You can one shot chaos.
LeamAlGarae 18 Feb 2024 02:05
First, and most importantly, I think is a fantastic community and I really appreciate all the work everyone here does, especially the quick responses to bugs.

From having read through all the comments here, I don't think anyone who "complained" was *complaining* so much as grappling with the idea that this set, like some of the other NES sets (e.g., the Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest set) puts a lot of emphasis on grinding (at least if you want to master it in a single run-through).

For Dragon Warrior, ok, there's no way that game doesn't involve superfluous grinding. So I get that.

Final Fantasy didn't share that as an *inherent* characteristic, at least IMO.

So were I to offer one piece of feedback on this set -- not to "change" it, but for future consideration -- I think this revised set drives grinding too much for a core set. Things like the "x battles on PoP before the pirates" strike me as too grind-heavy to be core-set missables. Things like that might fit better into a subset, where "beat chaos with four white mages" (the most grind-heavy achievement, I *think*?) would live.

Just thoughts in the hope of thinking about how core vs sub sets are made generally -- not asking for or suggesting any changes to the great work done here!
Zephie 18 Feb 2024 13:36
japanese version not supported anymore huh
suspect15 18 Feb 2024 15:12
No, for set stability the new achievements were coded for the US release given that is the version that the overwhelming majority of RA users play. If you'd like to assist with compatibility testing for the Japanese version, I'm not opposed to it, but I'll need someone to collect a save state before each achievement would trigger to validate the new memory used remains compatible. Send me a message if you are interested in helping.
ersatzcats 18 Feb 2024 16:36
lol I decided today I'd get to FF1, and I was very confused as to why it looked entirely different from what I remembered browsing. Honestly, the new set looks great! The only ones I was mentally preparing for were the fiend ones (Defeat Lich with the final hit from a White Mage, Kary Black Belt, Kraken Black Mage/Wizard, Tiamat Knight). I may just do those anyway, insofar as they don't conflict with the new ones. And the "No class change" and "No treasures" ones give me something to return for. As always, thank you all for your work!
SegoeUI 19 Feb 2024 01:44
Re-mastered. Treasureless + no class change + dragging around a Black Mage to cast FIR3 on Kary and BANE on Tiamat (which took me 27 casts to work) was a lot of stuff to stack. I am for sure going to have a new appreciation of the unique treasures you can find in this game, because without any weapon upgrades, spell-casting items, or element resistances, every dungeon feels like the Earth Cave all over again.

Did I get lucky having the word work on the first try?

Need some help from players who may be going after the Peninsula of Power achievement. As I suspected, apparently you can find Wyverns on the peninsula, but they seem to be exceptionally rare - I couldn't find one in over 400 fights. If you do encounter Wyverns, please make a save state during the fight and let me know. I'd greatly appreciate it so I can see the enemy group ID and add it. For now, I added the group ID for the Wyverns that you can fight around Onrac, but it may not be the same one as I've seen enemy group IDs varying between locations depending what else can spawn with them.
ImpliedKappa 19 Feb 2024 19:18
Because of the way enemy spawns are assigned by square regions on the map, if you got the group ID from Onrac, it is the same region and thus the same fight/group ID as the PoP. This link shows a map detail of the common region for Onrac and the PoP: http://www.fforigins.com/ff1/maps/enemymap/block48.html
suspect15 19 Feb 2024 19:37
That's not Onrac in the map, that's Lefein. I since found an enemy group FAQ on gamefaqs that listed the wyvern group in the PoP box as 0x70 which is what I found outside of Onrac. The FAQ also listed the groups for the other monsters I was able to confirm either identically as I'd noted them or exactly offset by 0x80, so I'm 99.99% confident the Wyvern group is good as well.
RedGames12 20 Feb 2024 03:35
Mastered Again!
suspect15 20 Feb 2024 23:54
Wyvern group ID has been updated and is correct now - much thanks to Etron and SamsamDaGameMan for their help with the states.
Totalaerus 21 Feb 2024 09:24
These revised achievements are excellent. The new conditions for killing the Fiends are so much better than the old class-specific ones.
