Did an overhaul to this set to bring it up to completion. I feel perhaps all the time trial achievements are a bit overboard but I had to do them that way as the game only does them in a loop-ish fashion and doesn't care if you complete them or not. If I didn't do that, 64 puzzles with a unique gameplay feature compared to the rest of the game would not have achievements.

The Japanese version will work for the easy achievements, but will not work for anything past that. They share the memory up to that point.

Important Note:
--------------------
The Time Trial puzzle order is set for the first time through, it will always give you every puzzle at least once before repeating. After it has gone through each puzzle, the pattern will change but the first time through is the same for everybody. Do NOT "give up" if you want to get through all of them in one run, resetting the game does not reset the order and the game does save where you left off in the pattern, but will skip the puzzle you reset on if you don't use the "save" feature.

Just in case anybody needs it, here's the Puzzle IDs for every time trial puzzle:

https://pastebin.com/1gS30Zzd (For 0xd807)

If you load a save that already did some time trials or "give up" on any puzzles during your pattern, open the memory inspector and observe 0xd807. Keep giving up on puzzles until it is the ID of the puzzle you need, then solve it.

Btw, I've just encountered some strange behavior: I had RAVBA set to Automatic (Options -> Gameboy -> Automatic) mode, so it ran the game in SGB mode. This unlocked all the Easy, Kinoko and Star achievements when I first started the game, even though I had never played any of the puzzles on that savegame. I immediately reset my progress and started the game in GB mode, which seems to work fine so far.

That was rather odd, didn't realize all the memory would flash to ff when loading for the first time. Should be fixed.

A proposed remove Japanese support and add it to its own entry and make a bonus set that only includes the 11 puzzles not represented in the international copy

So, for some reason, my RetroArch mobile app glitched out just as I was completing the last of the Easy level 8 puzzles

Time Enough For Mario Time Enough For Mario (5)

Now it says I've completed it 100% but the achievement is locked. Is there any way to trigger it without me having to restart the whole thing?

yuvi3000 if you still have RetroArch up, grab a screencap showing it was unlocked and then follow the steps here

This probably was a network issue, so you don't need to open a ticket, just submit the proof either on discord or to admin.

Thank you so much! But sadly I've already passed the point I could record. I've decided to just start a new game and replay that one row of puzzles, then I'll go back to my previous save and continue playing.
