Awesome set, really fun; I loved the boss-specific challenges and the chicobo achievements.

Why are most of these descriptions all garbled cryptic nonsense?

[m] alerts for a missable achievement. Unmissable ones related to the storyline use fragments from the Divine Conedy, by Dante, that inspired the use of the Malebranche demons.

MASTERED! Thanks MrGauss for the definitive FFIV achievement set. This one really does take you through the entirety of the game.
11 Jan 2021
15:35
really i have to play all this game in japanese? wtf
11 Jan 2021
15:40
Go here https://www.romhacking.net/hacks /2337/ then download the LunarIPS along with the ROM patch. You then use the Lunar IPS program along with the patch on the Japanese version of the game.
11 Jan 2021
15:58
I used the RAlibretro emulator that you can download on here and that worked for me for the achievements. Make sure you're also using the correct Japanese FFIV rom too.
11 Jan 2021
16:04
I already tried it my friend, but the emulator does not recognize the Achievements, if I make this patch
11 Jan 2021
16:06
I downloaded the game in jap, the retroarch recognized the achievements, but after I apply the patch the retroarch no longer recognizes the achievements ... = \
11 Jan 2021
16:06
I will try to play the rom with patch in the retrolibero, to see if it works ... thanks for the help ..
11 Jan 2021
16:08
You're using Retroarch? Try using RAlibretro that you download here. I noticed that I had more luck with getting ROM achievements recognized when I used that program instead of Retroarch.
11 Jan 2021
16:11
hehe...i like much more retroarch..i already tried the retrolibero, it is very confusing and with a strange design ... I didn't like it ... but in this case I will be obliged to use it if it works ...
11 Jan 2021
16:15
I didn't like it that much at first and I will agree with you about the strange design..but it tends to work better on getting achievements on here.
11 Jan 2021
17:38
It's what we use to make achievements so it makes sense.
11 Jan 2021
18:42
It does not make sense but the patch must be applied to a US Rom. You'll have to follow all the instructions of the patching process in the romhack page.
11 Jan 2021
20:01
no work in libero, neither pacth in US rom final fantasy 2. i quit..
21 Jan 2021
15:40
Why is it ok to make it so that you need a patch to complete all achievements?
21 Jan 2021
15:53
I saw you commentary on the "Salve" cheevo. Are you sure you're trying it with 5 party members? All cheevos should be unlockable on all supported versions. I will take a close look at it latter.
