Are there plans to add Duck Tales achievements? Most of the same ones from the NES version could be added since this game is similar other than the design of the stages and the easier pogo controls. I don't think the Gyro stages are in this one though.

Also can anyone add games to the database or does that have to be done by site staff? I would like to add Duck Tales 2 (Game Boy) as well.

You can add a game to the database by simply loading the rom through the emulator, it will ask you to name it on load.

Thanks Dexter. Can we also add screenshots, box art images, etc or can only site staff do that?

Posted: 30 May, 2015 10:30
Anybody with dev status or higher can add those. If you're working on a set, ask an admin for it.

Posted: 30 May, 2015 13:14
I made you dev. You can add images etc yourself now :)

Posted: 30 May, 2015 23:16
Thanks, I appreciate it. Are there criteria regarding the dimensions (pixel length & width) of screenshots & box art? I want to make sure my submissions comply with any guidelines. Thanks again.

Posted: 30 May, 2015 23:21
I don't think there are any limitations in size, so the bigger the better :)

Posted: 31 May, 2015 00:05
OK. cool. :)

One last thing, where on the site do we upload the images? Is there a tab or button at a certain area of the site? I was thinking it would be at the profile of a game, like where it says "No screenshot" but I don't see anything there to add screenshots or anything. Thanks in advance.

Posted: 31 May, 2015 00:38
Go to the page of the game and then press the "developer" link under the infos of the game. You can upload them there :)

This message is for Firebrand4 since he said he will be working on the achievements of this game. I came up with a list of 56 suggested achievements, 1 of which you already completed & submitted (the beating the Amazon boss without being harmed achievement). I grouped the achievements in this list by category. I have another version of this list where the achievements are numbered more or less in the order that you would get them done while playing through the game. I can PM that version to you if you think it would be helpful. I came up with point values for all of these 56 achievements where they total up to the 400 point maximum. The one you already did has the same 20 point value like all the other "Bested _________" achievements.

I also took the maps I found and marked them up with the locations of every item in each stage. I will definitely upload those to my imgur account and will send you the URL's so you can download them, as they will be VERY helpful.

Anyway, here is the list, enjoy :):

Notes:

a. I think the "None Shall Pass...Without a fee" achievement should be triggered by having the script(s) look for memory address values resulting from entering the Amazon boss room from the right side of the room

b. I think "The Best Things In Life Are Free" achievement should be triggered by having the script(s) look for memory address values resulting from entering the Amazon boss room from the top of the room (i.e. falling down into it)

c. I'm hoping the 2 achievements regarding getting ice cream from Mrs. Beakley in the African Mines & Himalayas stages are possible (i.e. I hope the memory addresses differentiate between getting an ice cream from her versus from anywhere else in those stages)
