Adding Achievements to Nes

To get achievements working on the Nes core system.

Make a folder in your home directory and call it Quicknes.
After you have done that you need to Git Clone into that folder.

git clone

Next go ahead and compile the project:

Go to the QuickNES_Core folder and run the make file

cd QuickNES_Core

this will take a while

Loaded SSH on the PC and connected to your Pi.

Now after this is complete you will want to move

/home/pi/quicknes/QuickNES_Core/ to /home/pi/quicknes/

Now you will want to edit


You will want to add this to line 4/Bottom of the page.

quicknes=”/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -L /home/pi/quicknes/ –config /opt/retropie/configs/nes/retroarch.cfg %ROM%”

You will also want to edit line 2 to


save and upload.

Now reload retropie and enjoy Nes with achievements.


Hi, Welcome to my blog.

I have started this blog to keep a record of my RetroPie Nes build. I currently have a RP1 running RetroPie version 3.3.1. I have recentally enabled retroachievements  and i think its great that you can earn achievements on such old platforms.

I will update soon.
