Morph ball achievement didn't pop. Anyone else having the same problem?
28 Dec 1:11 2016
I have not earn Brain Damage...another fail in another game...In every game i have mistakes.

Use Metroid (U) [!] for this set. (E) will not function, it's been linked elsewhere because of timer shenanigans causing problems.
20 Jan 23:40 2017
Do not link Romhacks here. They belong in their own entries.

Morph ball didn't pop for me either.
4 Feb 17:04 2017
Pal timer would be shorter, not longer, on igt.
4 Feb 17:06 2017
Morph ball pops correctly, use the RANes emulator this site offers, not retroarch. (Or use the nightly build (NOT THE STABLE RELEASE) of retroarch, with quicknes as a core)
1 Mar 0:55 2018
Using RetroaArch is fine!
30 Apr 1:42 2018
Do the ones for beating the game in a certain time stack or do you need to beat it 5 separate times?
5 Jun 3:59 2018
They do stack
29 Nov 3:26 2018
Battery save protection is added to the set as well as other fixes.
3 Dec 23:21 2018
If you're playing on RetroArch please use QuickNES core only for this set.

Question: Am I going crazy or is the ice beam achievement glitched? Because I picked up the one in Brinstar first, then picked it up in Norfair but the achievement didn't pop. Was I supposed to pick it up in Norfair first for the achievement to work?
10 Dec 15:36 2018
ice beam achievement is glitched
12 Dec 21:34 2018
And I guess alienation is also broken.
20 Dec 17:22 2018
Ice Beam was broken. Fixed now.
21 Dec 8:33 2018
Alienation wasn't completely broken but it's fixed too.

And that's precisely why I love this community. Only time I had played this game was inside the Metroid Zero Mission bonus and only did the basic. Now, after mastering this classic, I feel so much closer to this epic series.
15 Apr 18:32 2020
It isn't just about the points, it's about truly diving into the game. It's about learning how to truly understand the soul of each game. Thank you, RA.
