Whoa! A Belmont Legacy was a tough one , but finally i mastered it

Redacted version was the best!

Note: For 13 Raging Clues, Informed Traveler, and With All These Laurels It's Not As Hardy, make sure you don't cancel the text boxes so early that the box(es) itself (border) is/are entirely skipped.

They all require the first exclusive value of the text/dialogue address to register, which shows up after the empty dialogue box opens entirely. I tested all 3 of these fine multiple times.

Note to devs/admins: please do not link any CV2 hacks to this set. I'm 99% sure ones with altered text/dialogue will not work with some of the new achievements. The FDS version will probably not work with those dialogue based achievements either.

New ones have been promoted just in time for Halloween so enjoy everyone.

**In addition to being done with the leather whip & having no items or bodyparts, Home Before Sundown must also be done deathless & at Level 0 (still pretty easy).

Updated Rich Presence to include Simon's Level & hearts.

Based on the current hash calculation method (which changed as of RANES v.15), the hash you should use for doing my achievements (don't know about the ones made by other devs) is 755f9086b0567243b3ce25cc8a6dfd17

A bunch of my achievements do not work in the Mesen core in RetroArch. Please use RANES as they were made using that emulator with its memory mapping. They may work in FCEUmm in RAlibretro but I'm not 100% certain.

All achievements worked perfectly with FCEUmm

While people said previously it worked with the redacted version i couldn't manage to make it work with the redacted version, it simply doesn't show any achievements to obtain

The set works great with the FCEUMM core. 5 stars, great fun

@Akadosan, I think that's the point. If my understanding is correct, patches like Simon's Redaction alter the checksum value of the ROM, which RetroAchievements uses to determine what game you're playing. Typically, this is used to prevent people from cheating by using patches that make the game easier. But in this case, since the quality of life improvements added in Simon's Redaction (faster text, etc.) are so worthwhile, would it be right to make an exception in this case?

Great set, lots of fun, thanks!

HARDCORE MASTERED!

The Cheeves worked really well with Retroarch's FCEUMM core. The leather Whip Challenge was grindy. CV NES Trilogy is now done.

Since the game measures your time, I added a leaderboard.
