quick question before I start trying the speedruns, what is considered a "loop"? Also, can I use the second controller to use the password screen in order to backtrack faster?

Loop refers to your current playthrough of the game. After the credits of your first run you can restart the game with all the items of your previous playthrough. For this reason, only the 1st loop is considered on the achievements.

I like this kind of sets. It doesn't make you go out of your way while playing the game, and yet it rewards people who want to invest time on the game through the ending achievements.

Huh...I beat the game and got the ending achievements but the mother brain one didn't trigger. Using QuickNES core with retroarch

'All the tanks in the world' have misleading description, actually there is eight tanks in the game. But you can add only six to your health bar.

finishing the game in less than an hour requires a lot of training, planning and a little luck. But it makes you feel like a gaming legend.

I got all the achievements with the Mesen core. QuickNES is not required.

Mastered! Use https://www.metroid-database.com/wp-content/uploads/Metroid/metmap4.jpg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YY_VhY_y4OM&t=556s and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=35fMWNGtwEU they are nice sources!

Apparently this set is made for no-intro with the old headered_iNES. I know they will be around for quiet some time, but there is any chance to update it for the new headered_iNES2.0? I don't think it will be harder than adding the new hash to the list, since I don't believe the chages in the heard of the files changed anything ram related to the game. The heardered_iNES2.0 metroid file has the hash: MD5: 397d10e475266ad28144a5fa6ec3c466 CRC32: D1A02CAB

Mastered (platinado)! Exploring the entire map to get everything and learning some speedrun tricks to get the best ending made me appreciate OG Metroid more. I wonder what it must have been like to play this game at the time of release.

Mastered, under 1 hour run was fun to route. Thankfully the game allows for death warps.

Anyone else getting super bad lag when there's only like 3 or 4 enemies on the screen? Any ideas of how to make it better?

That's how the game is supposed to run @DarkArgentino. You gotta remember this is an 8bit NES game, it's SUPPOSED to slow down when lots of things are on the screen.

Mastered! Had to play the mother (brain) of Metroid. Unfortunately the game is nearly unplayable at certain parts. In Tourian, for example. Yes I know that is how the game ran on an NES

had to use nesquick, quicknes, whichever its called to complete the set. Had a strange thing where it would freeze around every ten minutes then go back to playing.For anyone who thinks they cant do the under our challenge, you can, there is a amazing video on youtube that will walk you step by step for a glitchless run
