If you use the wall clip glitch from Hyrule Castle, it pops Sanctuary with Golden Age at the same time

Is there a way to get this working with the DX upgrade to the rom. All of this does is fix bugs and add awesome CD quality music. These should work for it. It's the definitive way to play the game

Got the Red Shield but the achievement didn't unlock for me. Bought it from the store. There's no other way to do it, right?

You can also get it by dropping the blue shield in the wishing well.

Cool, I'll try that. I should be able to get the Red Shield snagged and then just buy the Blue one to try that out with. Thanks for the suggestion!

Getting another Fighter's Shield and changing it into the Red Shield via the fountain worked! Odd that it does not trigger when buying it from the shop, though... oh well!

I guess the person who added battery cheat protection forgot that you could buy it and didn't put the location of the dark world shop as an Alt

'Bested Trinexx' seems to be broken. Killed him several times with no damage. Achievement does not come up when the heart is collected but the Crystal achievement does. Tried exiting and re-entering the dungeon as well. No luck.

Mastered. What a great masterpiece, there's no other one like this on the entire 16-bit era, that's for sure. :')

I would say this is the easiest zelda game to master on RA due to the magic cape helping heavily with the damage-less bosses

This game is good and easy ,i love this game :)

"Bested Trinexx" wasn't working if the player felt into the pit in the previous room to the boss room. That was counting as "taking damage". I just fixed it, now it's working properly.

Thanks to Thoreau for fixing the rupee achievements so I could master the set!

Bested Trinexx is still not working for me. I had about 10 attempts, one of which was in hardcore mode. Got all other achievements so far with no trouble.
