Loved this game back in the day. Loved the Japanese version a bit more, because of all the Hell references. Island, pah. =p

Hmm, had an issue getting achievements from stage 2 after starting a new game from the title screen. Had to go into stage select and re-do the stage to get it to pop. Stage 1 popped normally however. Using PCSX-Rearmed core in Retroarch

I'd like to propose some achievement additions. I don't know if this is the right place to post this, but I'm sure someone will steer me right. Anyway, here they are...

I had created achievements to defeat the rival at level 4 of the CPU, but I decided not to add on set. My reasons is that they were just frustrating ...
You have to achieve cool status at the beginning of the stage and make an almost perfect score to win. You spend the entire stage spamimg random commands and hoping to work.
About "cool in team mode" for me is unnecessary because there are already achievements to finishing in cool and without having to depend on the cpu for that.
About "Fever" I just don't find it interesting.

My opinion about these achievements is that they wouldn't look good on the core set.
Maybe in a Bonus set ...

Actually, Level 4 CPU isn't that hard, believe it or not. Based on my experience, the Level 4 CPU doesn't actually seem to know about Fever Mode. And since it can boost your score by a lot, Fever Mode can basically make a joke out of the CPU, even winning the match by depleting their score to 0. Give it a shot: enter Cool status, trigger a Fever Mode or two, and see if that makes it easier.

Next, I recommended the "Cool in Team Mode" achievement because of how unreliable the CPU is when it comes to entering Cool status. In my experience, there are times where even when you get a good score on a line, the CPU could easily screw you over and drag you into Bad status. In hindsight, given that this achievement does pretty much rely on luck, I can see how it would belong in a Bonus set. It was just an idea, though...

Lastly, could you elaborate on why you don't find Fever Mode interesting? Sure, by itself, it may not be anything to write home about since all it really does is increase your score. But I think it would make for a great opportunity to make a challenge or two around it on RA. In fact, me and a few other guys are already using it to make the leaderboards here. There are even people outside of RA who managed to score even 30k while only using 2 Fever Modes. Trust me, achieving 20k in this game isn't as hard as it sounds.

So if you could, please reconsider. Few people even know about the purpose behind the button prompts that show up before beginning a stage so it would be great if there were achievements based around them, even if there were just a few.
