Someone posted the link and code on a facebook group for retropie. I have never heard of this and it looks fairly new looking in the forums. On facebook, I was given this code to link up your games to record your achievements
Use these settings in /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg
cheevos_username = yourusername
cheevos_password = yourpassword
cheevos_enable = true
From what I gathered, other emulators can be used as well.
Thoughts on this?01/02/2016 at 20:12 #112938
Recently heard about it as well, but didn’t look into it much.01/05/2016 at 11:07 #113155
Hi, just tried this out out with a SNES game on my retropie and the game registers and achievements unlock. I hope this means we might be able to get this working for other consoles and gets packaged in with ES and retropie in the future.01/05/2016 at 14:51 #113162
That’s cool. I am waiting on the NES achievements. I would be better if they would do PC Engine, however that might be too obscure.01/05/2016 at 16:31 #113170
It would be amazing if we could somehow display the achievement info from that site within ES.

I am waiting on the NES achievements.
There are NES achievements, are they not working for you?01/06/2016 at 01:37 #113228
Sounds lazy, but I haven’t added the code yet. I’ve been having some fun with the PSP emulator lately 🙂01/07/2016 at 22:24 #113388
To get NES achievements to work you need to install quicknes and use that instead.02/16/2016 at 03:35 #117132
I haven’t been able to get this to work. I am using image 3.5 and changed the retroarch.cfg file with my name and password but when I load a game, I get “Missing Retro Achievements account information” and “Error Loading Achievements” What am I missing?02/16/2016 at 06:20 #117138
It worked for me quite well so far with SNES games. My only issue is that there’s no switch to enable hardcore mode (disables the use of savestates and other cheats) so even though I’m not using savestates, I just get the regular achievement and not the hardcore version. :/02/16/2016 at 06:56 #117139
And there is no quicknes core for retropie at this point.02/16/2016 at 17:53 #117182
And there is no quicknes core for retropie at this point.
Not sure why it isn’t bundled with RetroPie (waiting for a mod to say why) but it is possible to install it yourself ! 😉02/16/2016 at 21:41 #117218
I’ll give it a shot. If it works and the achievements work as well, I’ll submit a bug/pull request for it.02/16/2016 at 22:42 #117221
The instructions had a lot of issues but I was able to get the core working as well as earn achievements. I’ll submit a pull request to the repo soon.02/16/2016 at 22:55 #117225
I find it annoying when people go to all the work to get something working on retropie and even blog about it but never think to add it to the source code. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and either attribute it to oversight or inexperience. Perhaps I need to do a better job on documentation of the scriptmodules.
Thanks for being proactive zerojay. It’s appreciated.
As an aside now that there is some support for x86, we’ll probably be adding the other libretrocores that we don’t currently have in the script in the future and use platform flags to restrict which systems they are installed on pending their performance.02/16/2016 at 23:03 #117230
Pull request: https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/pull/1270
And it’s now integrated into RetroPie-Setup. Update the script and then you can build it from the experimental menu. Let us know how it goes for you.
We’re looking into building a dialog box to allow you to set your username/pass and enable/disable achievements in the RetroPie-Setup menu. Hopefully we’ll have something soonish.02/17/2016 at 18:49 #117330
Just adding those three lines to the retroarch.cfg has SNES achievements working for me, yay!

Emulator QuickNESS easy to install from the menu of unstable functions. Remains only to specify it as the core when you first start any NES game (press A the button while the menu is displayed). Achievements works fine.
I have another problem: Super Mario World 2 (USA) for SNES in my profile at retroachivements.org recognized as Driver 2 Advance (Gameboy Advance). When you run the European version the screen displays a message: In this game there is no Achievement.02/23/2016 at 04:45 #117870
No idea. You’ll have to ask the guys at RetroAchievements.02/28/2016 at 00:38 #118389
Can’t wait to see this come to fruition, as I’ve just bought some of my friends Raspberry Pi for the holidays and given them copies of my library to share.03/14/2016 at 17:57 #120294
Lr-picodrive now supports Sega Megadrive achievements (you’ll need to install from source)
lr-fceumm (NES) has also just received support for achievements

just added to retraorch. see https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/pull/279003/15/2016 at 16:23 #120458
Nice. Now to re-earn all the ones I already have. Oh well. Thanks for the heads up guys.03/15/2016 at 16:30 #120461
God I wish it was possible to earn Game Boy/Color achievements 🙁
