"How do I eat this" (the eat a peanut achievement) seems to be bugged. Did it twice already and no unlock.
10 Mar 5:14 2020
Peanuts achievement is a little bit weird, can confirm, took me 4 successful tries before it registered.
10 Mar 17:13 2020

5 Apr 13:51 2020
Does this work with PBP files?
5 Apr 15:38 2020
AFAIK it doesn't work at all with PBP, the "checksum" can't be verified with this type of file
5 Apr 16:02 2020
Awesome! I'll find a bin / cue file and double check the checksum. Thanks!

I have problems getting achievements in castlevania sotn usa from psx. Take out many achievements but when you get to the second castle. I stop working achievements. He doesn't give them to me anymore. And I tried making another new game
11 May 5:11 2020
and he gives them to me. I don't know why the game was broken. I reached pj level 67 and it did not give me any easy achievements such as defeating false heroes. The one with the bat and grab the vlad. And neither does Medusa's
11 May 7:40 2020
The set was done by multiple Devs and some protected their cheevos from glitches such as the Death skip one.
11 May 16:51 2020
It could be that the game was broken to get achievements for using the game bugs. such as the one with the family sword in the library and making the duplicate rings bug. and that of skipping to death. but when skipping to death the achievements
11 May 16:52 2020
came out the same. I stop working after where the duplicate bug is made.
12 May 3:21 2020
I played it with the name x-xiv''Q and I go up a little level with alucard in the beginning until I get from hp to 30 and then I go ahead and kill the 2 wolves and the last one let me take the bite and fly away until you reach the room that follows
12 May 3:22 2020
death by skipping it. Obviously removing all the equipment.
28 May 19:31 2020
I cant get the Achievements to load for this game, I can get the game to load but it never gives me acheevos
29 May 3:09 2020
In order for you to get the achievements, you have to connect with the retroachievement account.
29 May 3:10 2020
for that you have to go to retroarch and in settings go to achievements and put your username and password and if you disconnect from the internet, the achievements will not be unlocked and if you use cheats or game bugs your game breaks
29 May 3:10 2020
and will not give you anything . for that you will have to go to the folder where you have the retroarch installed and delete
29 May 3:10 2020
the saved game and memory card from the game. The same if you want to backup your saved games.
30 May 6:56 2020
