These two cheevos are working properly on RAVBA but not on RetroArch's Gambatte core. I will demote them until I can find out why is this happening.

Most achievement don't work for me either on RetroArch/Gambatte, for example "One High" or "Game Boy is the new iPod"

Is someone looking into why a bunch of achievements aren't working on RA/Gambatte? Love this game, and the new cheevs look amazing, so sad they don't work

Because retroarch sucks.

Yeah, I hate how it lets me play all my favorite retro games on all my devices - including my Switch - under a clean and unified interface. Real shit software tbh. /s

Pretty sure the Gambatte core was changed semi-recently in a way that broke it for all achievements and it hasn't been fixed for some reason. Use Gearboy or Sameboy in the meantime.

Blazekickn: Thanks for the tip! For Tetris DX specifically or for all games? Because I've been playing regular Tetris and Wario Land and it has worked fine :/

Hey, Tetris fans I added 6 leaderboards.

Decided to settle on just 3 LBs. One for each game mode at the highest difficulty.

Start a new file. Try to get as much tetrises as possible.Rather die with only few lines erased than continue deleting singles and doubles.

AFAIK "take it back" is only possible with RAVBA.Set the emulator to classic GB mode.
