Tried again and I failed. I can definitely blame the placement of the emeralds this time, the first two were located in the page 30s and 40s of their respective sub-forums (n fact, the first one was the very last page of the Sonic Discussion forum :u).

I think there should be another indicator that tells you when you're in the "right" set of ten pages in a subforum (I.e. page is located in thread 56 of a certain subforum. The radar starts at gray or dark blue when you're in the proper subforum, then changes to blue when you hit the 50s pages of that subforum). Otherwise if a emerald is located in the page further away than the first 15-20 pages, you might as well kiss your chances of getting all three emeralds in time for a rank higher than F goodbye. You're better off forfeiting and trying again instead of searching up to page 38 or whatever.

Finally managed a sub-10 minute run.

It's definitely not fun scrolling through 80 pages, needs some work there.

Why would you make me search for Emeralds in the Trash forum, I don't like that place. :(

This is amazing.

My best non-cheating run is 3:10. This game is awesome!

I'm loving this. I've played it a few times and it's great.

I've encountered an issue with my last game though:

Where is it? The radar is red in this area, but the emerald is nowhere to be found.

I encountered this as well. Go forward a page then then back. It should appear.

Yes, this is really amazing. A bit unfair in forums with lots of pages, but amazing nonetheless.

I absolutely have to know who recorded the Member's Lounge track. It's glorious.

I just got lucky. Two Emeralds showed up in Members Lounge, but fortunately they were on pages 9 and 11 in short topics. I got my highest score, but only got a B rank.
Spoiler


Previously I got an A rank for a score of 25,000 and a time of 03:31. Is it cause I navigated away from Retro? I had to reload the game since going back to the forum index netted be a blank white screen. Naturally, I feel a grave injustice has been served and you've ruined my entire evening. This is the worst thing ever.

(no seriously this is fucking brilliant and totally stopping me from doing all my work)

This is officially more fun than the emerald hunting in SA1/2. I was going to go out tonight, but I might just play this all night.

As the count under my name proves, I've been wasting too much time on this today.

Great work Posted Image
