Unlock achievements on your favorite classic games!
RetroArch provides a trophy unlocking mechanism similar to modern game consoles.
The first step is to register an account on http://retroachievements.org/.
Please note that this service is not maintained by RetroArch or the libretro team, and that there will be an official alternative soon.
Then, you need to enable the functionality and fill your retroachievements credentials in Settings->Achievements.
The hardcore mode prevents you from using emulation features like slow motion, fast forwarding, cheats and savestates.
You need an active Internet connection.
In this example, we are using the game Chrono Trigger (USA) with the core snes9x.
Launch the game and trigger the Quick Menu.
Go to Achievements and you should see a list of the unlockable trophies for this game.
On the retroachievements website, you can login and access your account page.
You should be able to check your progress in the games and see which trophies you unlocked.
Trophies unlocked in hard mode are marked with a special color.
You can also check the progress of your friends and add comments on their trophies.
