The fact that we can use the DX hack is beautiful.

I love this game and this set except for one glaring achievement.

The 3-1 speedrun Easton Speedrun achievement is insane. It really should be at the very least reevaluated since so many people abused checkpoints to get this achievement initially when it was broken. A fair number that would still be challenging and tough for most players would be around the 95 sec mark which would still be using a damage boost with a carried over mushroom or at least allow for a mistake.

Here is the current speedrunning world record on this stage
.

It personally doesn't really bother me as I have a ton of other games and cheevos to master and such, but it is very frustrating for most as an achievement to get. Especially since only 10 people have gotten it on Hardcore since checkpoint protection was added to it in May of last year, so .002% of the player base can be verified to have gotten it legitly.

I don't know, just my 2 cents on it.

Yeah that was discussed before and the dev removed 5 seconds of the timer if I remember correctly.

I've written some tips to help with this achievement on page 4 and 5, maybe they can help you

Why on earth were these titles changed they were much better before imo!! Coin allergy is a legendary achievement.. why change it to "allergic to coins"??

And "Mamma Mia" to a general "Big bonus" ?? Cheevos are supposed to sound fun and catchy!

Revision plan:

Demote:


Reason:
This cheevo is pretty hard. Make sure that you start as Big Mario otherwise you need to restart emulator and try again. Also that won't work on Hard Mode because of many enemies. Not even you can use save states if you play as Small Mario. Seems like that's pretty hard. Move to Bonus Set? Yes, it's a solution.


FAQ?

Q: But around 700 peoples earned it?
A: Because Scott doesn't fix it yet and allow to use checkpoint to reset the time. Since I fixed (may 2019) it then it's impossible.

I now the vote passed, but why not simply change the requirement to be more attainable instead of moving the achievement to the bonus set? I haven't tried it and I'm not even familiar with this game, so I don't know how hard/impossible it is. I'm just curious, but wouldn't increasing the time limit from 85 to 90 seconds for example be a better solution, then removing the achievement from the set altogether?

It lost by a landslide.

Oh. I haven't really paid attention, seems like I assumed they were in alphabetical order down there. Still my comment was more related to why even suggest a demotion of the achievement when rebalancing would be a better solution in my opinion.

The time will increase from 85 to 90. Also changed badge as well.

I want to make a mini-rescore for this game, althrough got nerfed twice already, it still is the hardest achievement in the game, and deserves a higher score.

10 -> 25
