    This game...oh my god this game.

    Seriously all I can say is use this link:

    The objective of the game is to gather 14 of the items around the map and put them in the cauldron in a specific order. The item you need to put in the cauldron is determined by going to the cauldron room (as a human, if you are a ware-wolf it will attack you) and wait for a picture of the item to flash on screen.

    There are 7 different items and you will need two of each, but from what I have seen based on the map there are way more than 2 of each item on the map, so this is really good for being able to make a strategy to determine what rooms you should visit, because some rooms are much harder than others.

    On the way to beating the game and getting this achievement you will also get;
    Rare ReplayMelkhior's ApprenticeThe Melkhior's Apprentice achievement in Rare Replay worth 118 pointsKnight Lore: Over time, add every type of ingredient into the cauldron.

    It appears that you WILL spawn in one of the locations shown, but it also seems like you will spawn there consistently, so don't keep trying to reset to match up with the video guide. The video serves merely as a reference for specific room help.

    What needs to be put in the cauldron is random. So don't rely entirely on the video for what to put in the cauldron first, because it may be very different for you. You can determine what needs to go in the cauldron by going the in the room (as a human, as a ware-wolf you will be attacked) and waiting for the item you need to flash above the cauldron.

    Here is a tip I used if you are stuck in any room;
    If a jump seems too high, or too far, if you have an item in your inventory. You can place that item below you, then jump and very very quickly pick up your item again so you don't lose the item. It's not extremely hard to pull off, but if you mess up just hold the L button to rewind!!!

    Oh, and don't forget to go to the options menu and turn off the time limit and turn on infinite lives!!!

    This video helps too:

    Dr Scrufflton says:
    "That link says the starting points are random, but I can never get it to match up with the one in the video. The one in rare replay always starts at the same location, and its not the same as the one shown"

    In response from myself:
    "That's strange because, like you said, I as well start in the same place every time, but my girlfriend has been starting in a different place from me, yet has been starting in that same place consistently...perhaps spawn is locked per account. Also, the guide in the link is for the original version of the game. I have noticed that a lot these old games have had very slight changes to them. For example Atic Atac has changed the location of the red and green keys, from the original copies of the game. The guide should still serve as a decent hand holder through the game. It helped me immensely.

    Also, about the video, I mostly used that as a way to see how specific rooms are done. If I couldn't figure out a room I'd scan the video until I found the specific room I was working on.

    Lastly, like I said, use the video guide as 'per room' help. I would strongly, strongly advise using the map in the link as your main guide."

    ReptarOnIce3000I believe you could do that.

    And yes, that is always a good idea. That's what I did

    talkietoasta84Great advice, thanks mate!
    Only thing that threw me was the bit about picking up an item as you jump. For me, I had to pretty much press and hold A and B together to get this to work.

    planchetflawTell you what... You really become a pro at this game as you go through. Absolutely hated it at first. Some jumps are pixel perfect and a required multiple times in a room. But now I'm starting to enjoy it. My hatred is the constant guy/wolf/guy/wolf... While trying to do those jumps.

    There is a much easier way to do this luckily

    The game's RNG seed is controlled based on the time you hit A on the title screen, using this Speedrun video as a guide

    Watch the video and listen to the title screen music, Follow the music and hit A on your game at the same time as the video to end up with the same seed allowing you to simply work through the video room by room

    You can enable the lives/time cheat without effecting anything if you need it, but following the video you should be safe (as you can always use rewinds)
