I've got an issue with "Arrested Development". I called the police (triggered an achievement), it came and got the meteor, I finished the game but the achievement didn't trigger. Any idea why?

I used several different versions of "Maniac Mansion (USA)," but it always said there were no achievements (using RANes). I had to use Retro Arch, enable Achievements, log in and use the Fceumm core to get them to activate.

According to the dev's it's impossible to master this game in a reasonable time.. I finished it in about 2 hours reloading save files (from the built in save system, not save states) and I was flagged as "cheating" LOL... what a joke.
