Hey, heads up, I'm not really sure where to put this, but I'm using LibRetro emulator cores (lr-fceumm) for most of my gameplay, and all of the Dracula's Remains and Crystal achievements triggered when the ROM booted the first time.

Question: Do these achievements kick for the redacted version? It's a hack where this guy fixed all the minor things that made this such a bad game. Same game, just shifted the content so it was more playable
2 May 14:58 2017
So far I've been earning achievements fine on the redacted version.
11 Nov 20:24 2017
Improvement suggestions: If you get the best ending you should get all endings (since they are time based); Password protection (For no damage achievements like the Dracula one maybe acceptable); Some new achievements.
11 Nov 20:30 2017
New achievements suggestions: Complete the game without upgrading the whip; Reach level 1 before the 2nd day morning; Collect the 13 hidden books in one playtrough; Full inventory before Dracula; Reach level 6 (?); Collect 256 hearts (?);

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

Redacted version was the best!
31 Oct 5:53 2018
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.
31 Oct 5:55 2018
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.
31 Oct 6:03 2018
Use the following MD5: 3979f4a48b98cc9aaa8d3964d4cf2b8a
31 Oct 6:09 2018
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.
31 Oct 6:10 2018
New ones have been promoted just in time for Halloween so enjoy everyone.
31 Oct 6:20 2018
**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
15 Mar 9:29 2020
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.
5 May 9:24 2020
All achievements worked perfectly with FCEUmm
