Is it possible to link the "Faxanadu (J) Retranslation (T-Eng) v1.04.nes" version ?

Posted: 04 Sep, 2019 00:30
Just wanted to second adding the retranslation requested. Would be nice to play through without having to remember my mantra. The passwords for Faxanadu are long and frustrating.

Posted: 10 Sep, 2019 12:09
No compatible with Uncensored version. Only Faxanadu (USA).nes

I'm fed up with this site! Several achievements reports not working from people using a romhack version or a Japanese version.
I know that these versions are indicated functional on the forum page but I have NEVER linked a version other than the USA version !!! I am not the one who created this list of compatible roms. ONLY THE VERSION USA IS COMPATIBLE WITH THESE RETROACHIVEVEMENTS !!! The errors are irreparable because, you do not use the good ROM. And since it is forbidden to create achievements until the errors are fixed, I can not create any more.
To check all this, I should play the version EU, USA, JAP and all the existing romhack under penalty of never being able to create retroachievements? I think I will totally forget this site as a lot of achievements creator have done before me.

You know you can unlink incompatible hashes, right?

Also, I'd worry more about the fact that most of the achievements can be unlocked using several passwords, even in the US version.

Thundard, I am sorry that my carelessness has disappointed you.
Please don't say that you forget RA.

Sorry if my ticket caused trouble for you. I was just following the ROMs linked on this forum post. I didn't realize they weren't official. Thank you for making a set for this game. It was fun to play through again with the achievements even if they don't all work properly for the rom I used. It's my bad, not yours, I'm just not entirely familiar with the way the rom hashes are linked. I've just followed what's in the forum posts for most games. I didn't realize they weren't always accurate. Hope you don't get too discouraged, the achievements are just for fun.
