The bested Evil Eagle Achievement should pop if you use the Hookshot to finish him off or wait to finish him off after he tries to blow you off of the tower.

Yeah, for the original LA I was using a DX rom. Not a big deal but I have to do a lot of things again.

Why only 375 points?

Last I checked it was because they are trying to figure out the memory addresses for a lot of the photo ops in the game to use them as achievements.

Dammit, I stupidly got the Level 2 sword before getting all of the other sea-shells. Now I'm stuck at 20 and the rest of the shells are rupees.

Well, this was a fun game... It'll be nice when I return here for the GB set!

Remi, we are definitely in the minority. Link's Awakening is my favorite LoZ game also. I hope Nintendo maintains the integrity of the series and never changes the formula too much. The direction they went with Hyrule Warriors makes me a tad nervous.

On the other hand, I could not get The Travel of THIEF to trigger using RetraArch. I had to boot up the trusty RAGBA emulator to get it to trigger. I transferred my rom from my file and renamed the .srm save .sav before booting the emulator and Wahla

Wow! This looks pretty heavy!

After looking at a LADX hack that I'm currently making a set for, I may come back and fix these to be more stable now that I have identified so many addresses, many of which would be better ways of ding the achievements in this set.

I'm going to fix the achievements in here in the future after working on a hack with the same addresses and figuring stuff out. But it may take some time.

Okay, so I just unlocked a bunch of achievements randomly without earning them. Including the complete photo album, all 26 secret shells and the upgrades to arrows and bombs. All I did was visit the camera place before going into the Mobgoblin cave
