After hundreds of hours of work over the course of 3 months... this set is now finally complete. All badges were hand-drawn by me.

It is HIGHLY recommended that you look at the forum topic, and the guide video there ALONG with all resources placed in it's description before you attempt this set.
Strong and serious knowledge of the game will be required to complete this set. Every inch of the map is explored and unique ways of going about it will be necessary.
Almost all known glitches are also showcased here (as well as 2 which have never been documented anywhere else).
This set is not for the faint of heart. If you do not like hardcore speedrun challenges, or brutal no hit challenges... this set is not for you.

This set is simply a labor of love for a game that deserves way more respect for it's impact on games as a whole. Enjoy the set and good luck on the runs.

This probably isn't for me, but the set and badges all look amazing! Nice work.

Thank you for this masterpiece of a set.

Timer restarts at second 4 every Time

@xelxlolox that's not a error, that's just how wonky the game is with tracking time.

How do I play this 'Subset' please, if it's not the official Metroid game for NES? Tysm.
AuroraX 22 Jun 2023 02:10
@RoundLettuce you need to download the .ips file located in forums, and apply it to a Metroid NES rom. Once it’s applied, open the patched rom in a supported emulator of your choosing.

Got over 2000 points literally just for putting in 4 passwords.

For someone that grew up really loving this game and delving into the unknown with it's glitches even as a kid, this has been fascinating. Thank you for this set! I'll never finish it fully due to lack of speedrunning skills, but the challenge runs and tricks have been awesome to figure out!

UPDATE:

1.) To everyone who plans on playing this set, please use FCEUX. This is what the set was developed with in mind. It will increase the odds of achievements actually triggering.

2.) Almost all achievements should work tho a handful of them seem to be not working concretely. Despite that, technically all achievements are possible… except for two. The achievements that do not work at all as of me writing this, are: “Crafty Tactician!!” and “Cementing the Mastery”.
Do not go for them until another dev comes along and says they have fixed them. I say this because…

3.) I unfortunately will no longer be developing anything else for the website. My life has become to chaotic, and don’t have time to fix this set or complete any others I had planned. The lack of any player engagement despite putting over 300 hours of work into this honestly did not help either, and really demotivated to do anything else. It’s unfortunate, but for now, this set is impossible to complete.
Again, please use fceux, and follow instructions as carefully as possible. The set likely won’t be broken forever, as only a few minor tweaks to logic have to be made to fix it… but I’m not sure when someone will do that.

Sorry guys... this wasn’t a post I wanted to make, but I couldn’t just leave this in the dark.

Aww, that's a real shame. I just learned about the set last night and spent all day plugging away at it. It's extremely fun, and really helped me look at this game in a new light! Almost made me feel like a kid again, exploring and discovering new things about a game I've been playing for decades.

Thank you for your hard work on this set. Hope things in your life get less hectic!

AuroraX, sorry to hear that. I hope things turn around for you asap.

This set deserves to stay in good shape, so I've subscribed to the tickets and will do what I can.

If any player wants to provide me with save states relating to any cheevos that won't pop, I can take a look. The save states can be made in Softcore or Hardcore. Note that a ticket is preferred for tracking purposes.

Best of luck to players attempting the set!

AuroraX Firstly congratulations on the work, incredible set, still trying to catch up.
Second, about the 2 sets that are broken: wouldn't it be better to remove them from the main sets until it is fixed?
This way it wouldn't be unfair for the more than 90% who just want to play to close the set 100%.
clymax 16 Jan 2024 12:34
welingtonrmonteiro, I will request our Playtesting Team to look at “Crafty Tactician!!” and “Cementing the Mastery” and give me a report along with save states. Then I can go about looking for a fix.
QATeam 16 Jan 2024 14:18
"Crafty Tactician!!” and “Cementing the Mastery" have been demoted based on the above conversation. If they can be confirmed to be fixed, they can be repromoted.
