Also fifth boss not working.
Ideru 9 Dec 2017 21:51
Hello im looking for this game in multilingua europe version i try some but they not work with retroachievement.
PhantomCoop 10 Dec 2017 08:47
Why is this and ages classified as Gameboy games when they should be Gameboy color?
Lancerlott 13 Dec 2017 22:14
Going to try Medusa Head no dmg a couple times, if it doesn't pop I'm going to submit a savestate cuz the set appears to be broken... got 2 no damage achieves for Mothula and Dodongo b4 I even fought them... many are reporting broken cheevs...
Lancerlott 13 Dec 2017 22:32
Yep, achievement is still broken/bugged. Did the boss three times without taking damage and still no credit. How do I go about submitting the save state I took before the boss?
MrKoippa 2 Dec 2018 13:14
I got Ring Apprentice ring case from red goron instead of Vasu..But I got the achievement..
ShadwSonic 24 Mar 2020 15:41
I got almost to the end of the Linked Seasons run... THEN realized what Vasu meant by "wearing" rings. Meaning I'd done everything WITHOUT rings!Bodes a little better for the Bonus set though!
RuSsile 7 Sep 2020 21:01
Tried both the USA & MultiLang editions and neither one gives me any achievements. Vasu gives us a L1-Ring Box immediately in the game which should be your first achievement but its not working.
RuSsile 8 Sep 2020 00:35
Oops I just learned I waa using myGBA which is primarily a GB Advance Emulator. GB Color games will work but achievements won't work on it. Now that I'm using that Batty GBC emu its working now.
ShadwSonic 8 Sep 2020 01:08
It can't just be that it was a GBA emulator... this game has a ring that requires it run on GBA. However, I used the standalone emu, not Libretro cores, so maybe that's the difference.
RuSsile 2 Oct 2020 17:23
I just thought about something that could be helpful for games like this one. You know how some achievements are missable and are marked with a [M]? Well some of the achievements here cannot be earned on a single play thru, what if we marked the ones
RuSsile 2 Oct 2020 17:26
that require a second play thru/secret password system to get? Maybe a [2nd] for 2nd playthru or something like that.. just a suggestions. Sometimes I get ideas, and I figure why not post it. Might be helpful.
RuSsile 10 Oct 2020 06:28
Just gonna be honest.. this whole secret thing doesn't make any sense to me and I dont understand it. Beat seasons to link to ages.. in ages linked ppl give secrets to bring back to season AGAIN? but why wud I want to replay Seasons again? Help?
ConfectionWitch 17 Feb 2021 06:58
You can use the secrets from Ages in a completed game of Seasons (and vice versa)
Oslash 23 Mar 2021 07:59
everything but the linked secrets upgrades can be obtained on a linked playthrough, just getting the upgrades via farore is not enough, these must be obtained on a completed standard file, telling the npc the secrets obtained in oracle of ages
spikeriley 19 Jun 2021 08:24
How do linked games even work in the emulator? I can't figure it out.
BlazingSpade 20 Jun 2021 02:03
I'll try to explain. Upon completing Oracle of Ages, a password will appear in final screen, use this password for creating a new file in Oracle of Seasons (This Oracle of Season is a Linked Game now).
BlazingSpade 20 Jun 2021 02:09
For items: 1. Find and get the password1 from certain NPC in OoS-Linked > 2. Back to the completed OoA and find the mentioned NPC, use the password1 to get the special item and a new password2 > 3. Back to OoS-Linked: use the new password2 in Farore.
SturmB 6 Feb 2022 18:53
This seems like a bug: When I load up my saved game (usually from a savestate) in RetroArch, unequip the shield, then re-equip it, the "Buying Protection" achievement pops again. This happens every time.
KeiranTrick 22 Dec 2022 06:28
Question about Diamond/Pearl Ring, if anyone is out there - I understand what rings are needed for one or the other. My problem is understanding why it needs to be a linked game specifically? Does this mean I have to complete a regular game without getting any rings (because getting the Friendship Ring locks you out) and then start a new one linked?
