That being said though, man, these no-E-tank, buster-only ones for the Doc Robots in particular are kind of insane lol. I still to this day have a lot of trouble fighting the likes of Quick and Wood even with weaknesses. Borderline ludicrous.
9 Nov 20:53 2016
Hey there! The no damage stage achievements are very fun to get!
6 Apr 1:47 2017
I wonder if No E-Tank Runs could be an achievement to place in. That and a basic speedrun achievement.
13 Apr 16:42 2017
ok, none of the achievements are popping for me. Just the "extra life" one. But any of the normal game progressions achievements or the "buster only" ones are going through...
13 Apr 16:48 2017
Was wondering if it could be a ROM conflict, but I am using the USA one, the one used for all the other games.
13 Apr 17:31 2017
Are you using RANES?
13 Apr 20:58 2017
yes. Like I said, the extra life achievement popped, but none of the others are working.
22 Jul 13:59 2017
The rom that you need is:Rockman 3 - Dr. Wily no Saigo! (Japan) the checksum is: 85944fb58b6afc53f8d20b8c1e19a0ab. Ok
20 Oct 2:15 2017
My hack of Mega Man 3, Link Man, recognizes the achievements.
6 Nov 0:05 2017
I used the rom with checksum e859a2e133eef9e2b1612508b6acfd58 to make the achievements I made, so I'm reposting this in case it got lost/left back.
6 Feb 19:34 2018
I'm having a heck of a time finding a rom with those checksums.
27 Feb 23:21 2018
Well this one looks difficult for someone that has never played 3 before. This will be interesting lol
12 Jun 1:11 2018
Update apparently this version of the emulator works on this machine, so finally.
22 Sep 15:26 2018
Can i do those no damage achievements in the boss rush?
22 Sep 21:11 2018
No, they have to be in the robot master stages. The boss rush has its own achievement.
21 Oct 6:04 2018
Note: For players using RetroArch & RAlibretro, make sure player 2 inputs are disabled before you start the set. I know for a fact that my achievements won't trigger if you have them enabled (perhaps the ones made by Jaarl & Scootaloo too).
28 Feb 18:01 2019
Long and for all the wrong reasons a difficult game. I can not damage the last boss. What to do? Of course, jump on his head using Top Spin! It's so obvious!
23 Apr 13:43 2019
That's... not how to effectively beat Gamma... though I share your frustration with Top Spin, it guarantees you get hit, and it's the weakness of THE most annoying boss of the eight!
14 May 6:55 2019
- unlocking achievements with savestates!? >> are "worthless" and non valid in my opinion... it should be automatically [off] for = everyone! period!
27 Nov 18:30 2019
Ok......If you don't want people to use savestates, take out "soft mode" and leave only "hardcore mode" enabled in all emulators.This discussion is tiring.
