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.
greasystumps 5 May 2020 09:24
All achievements worked perfectly with FCEUmm
Akadosan 2 Nov 2020 08:06
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
AntonioFNN 3 Nov 2021 21:53
The set works great with the FCEUMM core. 5 stars, great fun
PsyHunter29 24 Nov 2021 15:53
@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!
SoHai 25 Jan 2022 01:48
HARDCORE MASTERED!
Jazmataz 30 Jan 2022 10:49
The Cheeves worked really well with Retroarch's FCEUMM core. The leather Whip Challenge was grindy. CV NES Trilogy is now done.
TheMysticalOne 27 Mar 2022 20:50
Since the game measures your time, I added a leaderboard.
VerucaSweet 3 Sep 2022 00:02
sacred flame cheevo didn't pop, rib didn't pop. really frustrating to look this up and realize I have to replay the whole first part of the game because I was using the wrong core.
campusito 20 Oct 2022 17:10
My Retroarch shows that this game gas no achievements.I tried different names for the rom and still the same.
TheMysticalOne 20 Oct 2022 17:12
Most likely you'll need a different one. Yours is probably not the right hash.
Mutawarrior 20 Oct 2022 22:18
I recommend not using Retroarch or at least not writing tickets if certain achievements don't work in it as the set was made way before Retroarch support was added. It was made using RANES so I'd use that or the FCEUMM core in RAlibretro.
ArmeniusLOD 22 Oct 2022 02:27
@campusito I've been using the Mesen core and it works fine for me.
TheMysticalOne 12 Dec 2022 16:50
Added some variety of Trigger icons and Measurements (to the 7 signs and 13 books)
GrayCloudSpectator 20 Jan 2023 18:44
Mesen worked flawlessly for me for every achievement in this set.
ChronoGear 1 Feb 2023 00:21
Mastered! Thanks @jazmataz for the tip about the password. If not for that I might have had to turn off achievements on my emulator
Jazmataz 1 Feb 2023 07:58
@ChronoGamerGod

Nice how arrogant you are. You seem to enjoy bullying. Looking at your masterys and you like that on twitch you seem to have no life. Definitely runs with you with the women. With the Masterys, you're bound to be a hit with the women. Can't save yourself from so many girls in your spare time. Gamer Legend
ChronoGear 1 Feb 2023 08:04
Jazmataz, you're a child. You act like an insecure high school student. I'm arrogant? I enjoy bullying? You went to a page telling people to turn their achievements off because they were "whining" about an achievement they were struggling with. So you check my page and see I'm better than you and so you have turn to your weak insult of "I bet you don't get any girls!" And now you've said that same sad thing twice lol. You changed your comment after a few hours, I'm glad I made you mad and you dwelled on it for that long, pondering what to say to try to sound cool. It'd be funny if it wasn't so pathetic of you. But yeah, I do have a twitch as well. Don't forget to subscribe!
Jazmataz 1 Feb 2023 09:34
Shouldn't have written that. But why do people keep complaining about achievements when they're all optional? I look at your site, I see that you have mastered very difficult games. Doesn't it annoy you when people write they can't do the challenge or it's too hard. Unfair to those who made it. They then want changes on the set. You used to write things in the comments section of Aria of Sorrow and you joked because noobs complained. For me it's over now. I behaved a bit childish. We are both adults. I apologize for the women and girls insult. I don‘t subscribe to any Twitch Channels.
