None of the achievements for "collect X number of rupees" will trigger for me, though all the rest seem to be working fine.
danilofent97 17 Jun 2020 08:22
Mastered! Thanks for the awesome set!
RuSsile 28 Sep 2020 12:51
Doesn't work for me. Doubt I have the wrong rom. I already Cleared DX but Idk thought I do it again, guess not.
Vvardenfell 18 Nov 2020 19:14
my roms dont have the achievments

You can do a few crazy jumps in Angler's Tunnel and end up using a key in the wrong place, softlocking your progress forever during normal gameplay. You can use the warp glitch to fix it if you don't wanna restart.

Players: watch out for A Dream Come True. You must complete the game without dying.

Does the boomerang quick kill on the final boss not work on the original GB version? I can't seem to get it to work and none of the wiki's say its exclusive to DX.
Olafur 16 Jul 2021 08:18
i seem to recall doing so. Just keep shooting at the eye.
Zyvyn 16 Jul 2021 11:34
Ok it does work its just an extremely precise hit for some odd reason.
Zyvyn 16 Jul 2021 12:29
Mastered! Probably the easiest Zelda set to master just due to the small amount of achievements and crazy challenges. This version is significantly easier than the set for DX.
Olafur 16 Jul 2021 13:12
I'd say some of the DX Damageless are easier, if only due to the power tunic.
Ludoro 3 Dec 2021 20:35
Mastered :)
WanderingHeiho 18 Dec 2021 01:38
Mastered! Took me by surprise what elements aside from the Color Dungeon were absent in the original release (including the use of the mushroom for phase 1 of final boss).

What emulator are you using? This doesn't work with gambatte.
Olafur 21 Feb 2022 10:59
VBA is the main RA emu for gameboy games. You can also use Retroarch, which in case, I'd recommend mGBA. Works with all three gameboys.

I can't get the saving menu to open no matter what

Well, after playing the dx V this was quite easy

I've now added the ability for folks to compete for the title of fastest fisher person. Catch all five fish in one go.

Mastered. It was a fun set to go through and it felt good to play through this after so many years.
