This is my project now - I just wanted this as a place for myself (and others) to put ideas.

Don't know where to put this, I will just describe a few bugs I saw with achievements:
- The Ultimate Ritual (5) and Sweet Revenge (15) are gotten just by obtaining the Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon card after beating Kaiba regardless of how you did the duel.
- Show Me The Money (30) is gotten by reaching more or less 1,000,000 instead of 1,500,000.
- Trio of God Cards (20) is gotten by summoning Obelisk and Silfer against Yami Marek Ishtar and kill Ra with one of them without having Ra on your field.
- One-Hit Knockout (10) is silly precise, the foe must have exactly 8000 life points not one more or less or it didn't work, not really a bug, but I think if you deal 10000 damage point to a 8500 life points foe, you have to get the achievement.

All those things only are what I experienced not what it can be experienced by you, I just report it to you to help you to improve it if you want.
I just also wanted to make a little more complain (I already did one about the fact that you are forced to use the US version, but I think it's a Retro Achievements system problem) about the fact that you can't get some achievements without using cards code, I think it's not fair, Two Can Play That Game (15) for example demand you to beat Yami Yugi with Exodia, but all the Exodia part aren't naturally in the card shop when you have to beat him, so you have to do the card code, that's only my opinion, but I respect what you did, and I thank you to had did it.

I will look into the bugs you reported. I appreciate the input.

- Ultimate Ritual and Sweet Revenge I was aware might not have been triggering correctly, but nobody gave me any information. Thank you.
- I will check Show Me The Money. You get 500,000 after beating Marik and this would count if you had 1,000,000+ already. Is it possible that you did this?
- Again, will look into the God card achievement.
- I wanted to do 8000 or more, but I couldn't find a way to code it and make it work at the time. This was my first set.

US version is the standard for most games on RA. If I used the EU version, I would have added a massive amount to my workload because languages can change some items of memory (like text memory).

As for Two Can Play That Game, you don't have to code in Exodia. Winning duels unlocks random cards in the shop and you can keep doing this until Exodia is unlocked, if you prefer.

I have checked Show Me The Money and I had it in 16-bit instead of 8-bit. Corrected, and will report back any other changes.

Posted: 14 Jul, 2015 20:11
I understand better for the US version now, I was thinking, it was relatievely the same with just some text changes.
And I didn't know that winning duels unlocks RANDOM cards in the shop, I was always thinking it was predetermined, for I wasn't able to buy Exodia, so I did the cards code.
And for the One-Hit Knockout (10) achievement, I was guessing it was for that reason that it wasn't working like I was thinking, but no problem, you know, the achievement said that you need to reduce 8000LP to 0LP, so actually the achievement is correct, I just wanted to tell you to be sure.
Thanks again to had made those achievement for the game, a good game and you did a nice job.

Stupid question years after you did this, but the Never Coming Home, does that mean never lose and never save?

Sweet Revenge triggered in the middle of duel with Ishizu, I had beud in my hand, but obviously this was the wrong person

Is there a way to nullify monster effects in the game right when they go to use them? Because going flawless against yami marik is rough with him having exarion universe...

Belay that, finally succeeded when he didn't pull it quick enough.

I added battery save protection to the 23 achievements in the set that needed it.

I also marked the 8 achievements that I know to be missable by putting [m] at the end of the titles, and I reordered some of the achievements to more accurately reflect where the missable achievements fall within the story. For reference, "Afraid of Nothing" must be earned before the Ghouls invade the town. "Wing Clipping" should probably be accomplished as soon as the Building is opened on the map since Mai doesn't stick around for long. "I'm Not Messing Around" is missable because you don't to defeat all 10 Ghouls to progress the story; I believe only 5 or 6 of the 10 are needed. "The World Can Wait", Sweet Revenge", "Destined Duel", and "Two Can Play That Game" are missable since it is only possible to duel Ishizu Ishtar, Seto Kaiba, Odion Ishtar, and Yugi Muto once per game. Lastly, "Will You Marry Me?" is only briefly accessible before entering the Stadium Site.

I noticed that a few of the badges are random images taken from the internet, and they do not seem to match the rest of the set. Here are the backups and my replacements:

I would like to propose a revision of this set. I am mainly adding achievements for performing each of the rituals. These seem like interesting challenges in a game that isn't very difficult.

I am changing out all of the badges in the set, so this post will contain the backups and their replacements.

Posted: 18 Mar, 2019 11:15
All the new achievements are working fine other than the one I reported. Thanks Prism! Really liking the new icons as well. Was quick to remaster this cool game :D

Posted: 18 Mar, 2019 12:52
I'm glad you enjoyed everything, bonecrusher1022. I definitely think it was a good idea to use the in-game card border for each of the badges, but I wasn't sure if my icons for the Duelist Level achievements would be liked or understood. I was trying to use ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics, but I'm not really very good at graphic design.

In case anyone is confused by the unusual Ritual Summoning rules that are used in this game (the ones taken from the GBC games), here is a quick explanation. You have to have at least three monsters on your side of the field, one of which has to be the monster listed on the Ritual Spell you are trying to cast. Then, you must tribute two unrelated monsters before finally activating the Ritual Spell, which will transform the key monster into the Ritual Monster. It should also be noted that the key monster and the two sacrifices need to occupy different monster card zones. (e.g. Don't tribute a monster and then Summon the key monster in its place since the tributed monster will not be counted for the Ritual Summoning) Finally, "Gate Guardian Ritual" and "Ultimate Dragon Ritual" are special. For both of these, no nameless tributes are necessary; instead, they each require three key monsters that fuse into the Ritual Monster.

For the sake of convenience, I will list the passwords pertaining to the different rituals since what shows up in the shop is completely random. I might as well include the magnet warriors while I'm at it.
