RETRO Achievements
Post Posted: Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:47 pm
Hi forum, Has anyone know this?, is a site where you can register for free and play old games on emulators from systems such as 8, 16, 32 and 64 bits and get achievements as you play (the standard of modern consoles), the 8bits Sega systems supported by now are the SMS and SGG (sadly no SG-1000)

https://retroachievements.org

The feature to emulate old videogames gives replayability value, besides a ranking to compete worldwide, there are emulators patched for this ready to download from the site (in my case I use Retroarch). So you can say "bahhh there is no point play this games to get achievements just save and load a state", but you are wrong and could get achievements by playing hardcore mode so that the save and load feature is deactivated, so 2 ways of playing normal (with savestates) and hardcore (no savestates).

Maybe there is no way to adapt this to original systems and games, that isn't really and issue for me, and the last to add to this topic is that hacked, unlicensed or homebrew games are supported isn't this fantastic,no more spoilers just try yourself!!!

I've always thought the achievements were too simplistic and needed more code hackers to help make them more interesting. I think it's got better in recent years though.

Although I'm from an older generation that really doesn't care to use such features, I'd like to point out that It is implemented quite nice now. we put this in the libretro fbalpha core a while back and quite a few people love it.

best regards,

I don't remember attaching the link (never mind), most of my friends love this and got excited to play what they called boring old games, well if you never played an old game you wanted to on its day, it is an interesting way to play it now.

Now with homebrew games having sets I wonder if the authors would do the sets, as It might be.

I've read the requests/ideas section at retroachievements.org and It seems the next games would be: Flight of Pigarus, Deep Duck Trouble Starring Donald Duck, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 (SGG).

It is a good idea, how much would be worth a point maybe, unfortunately the author of the set has not login in for almost a year but you can post your cheevos ideas to the game forum here: https://retroachievements.org/viewtopic.php?t=4439 and we'll see if someone take it.

The polymega and retron 5 consoles support it I know is emulation but playing real cartridges, Imagine a device supporting several flash carts or similar from different consoles connected by usb or something including wifi would be awesome.
