I have a question: Can i unlock the achievements if i play the Double-Pack version or does it need to be the separated game ? It's because i already had the Double-Pack here with everything done.

Just try it, most likely you CANNOT use the Double-Pack but who knows.

Understood. Will check it and return later with more feed about it. Thanks in advance.
Edit: Seems like the achievs wont work on the Double-Pack version as you stated. The system asked me to register the Game as a New Entry when booted up. Looks like i'll have to get everything again... That's fine, though!

Achievement Suggestions

1. Julius Mode
2. I looked into this but couldn't figure it out (no shock), what about getting all enemy data complete (all drops found)

Beating on Julius Mode is now added. I docked Creaking Skull 5 points and gave it to the new cheevo. I'm planning on doing one for All Bosses Julius Mode, just need to figure some things out first in regards to values.

Edit: All Bosses Julius Mode is now also available. I took 5 points from All Red Souls and Lv 50 and gave those 10 points to this new cheevo.

Edit: Added some leaderboards, presently only for Julius. They will only turn on during the Graham fight, due to some people being annoyed by the timer in general. As a bonus, it does allow for a variance in categories, such as All Bosses.

It seems that you dont use the good ROM.
For my part, i use a US rom named like that; Castlevania - Aria of Sorrow (USA)
And this work fine for me.

Hi, I cleared the boss rush and the game with Julius, to unlock the achievement Belmont Legend but it didn't triggered. I tried the PAL and the US Version :/

Any solution ?

Well, I made the achievement with the US version.

That being said, I haven't gotten to address either achievement. Please be patient unless somebody else wants to try to fix them.

Edit: Seems it's due to the game messing around with values that I thought were to keep track of player and difficulty. Farking GBA games are horrible about that. So sloppy.

I've found a different way to who's playing, kinda. It'll make the achievements for Julius work at least. I've given a quick test (I had two save states at the end after beating Graham, one with 3 bosses beat and another with all 8). Works now as intended on the US version.

Yo! I was thrilled to find this site, but are there any thoughts to create leaderboards for Soma mode as well? Good ending would be nice (kill chaos phase 2 as soma), cause I would be over that like a dehydrated lamp-post! Soma All bosses would also be a nice touch :)
