    I still haven't found a single Emerald, despite resetting over and over (see: my f-rank count). Are they hidden somewhere in the post itself, or are they just not showing up for me for some reason?

    Would really like an answer...

    They show up just sitting somewhere across a particular post. You can't miss 'em, unless they're not showing up.

    It's been fun watching this being made (and some tests, see my number of F ranks =P). The two non-F ranks in my profile acre actually genuine though :)

    Hahaha! Very nicely done! It's quite impressive and it got a few chuckles out of me. Definitely had more fun with this than the levels it's based on.

    This is seriously cool, I love it! The previous halloween things have all been fantastic, but this is my favourite :)

    I think it hates me though - it keeps putting the emeralds in topics that have around 150-200 pages (and then one showed up in the Happy Birthday topic, so needless to say I got an F Rank there =P).

    Cinossu I love ya buddy and this is a great idea, but unfornately my POS computer can't handle it its shooting up the mem. usage like crazy so I'm gonna need to know how to shut it off.

    Will this be available via cheats in the future? I'd like to give it a shot this weekend when I'm on my brothers computer.

    EDIT: Oh okay so if you take out the "/emerald_huntin/" part of the url I can view the forum normally, sweet.

    Yeah, it's only mandatory on the first log in. After that, it's all optional.

    I had to close it from performance issues myself, (32-bit Firefox a culprit? Using Windows 8, so I haven't found an unofficial 64-bit build to use yet.) but man did I get a good laugh hearing the music, seeing the timer, and the HUD; scrambled to tell every Retro friend I have on Skype about it the minute I closed the mini-game. I think I'd have sunk a good half-hour into messing around with it if the CPU usage wasn't through the roof.

    Nicely done, as always, Cinossu, I thought last year's Halloween gag couldn't be topped. :v: You guys at Retro always know how to make Halloween extra special.

    I had same thing happening before. Weird was that the emerald was in another place than the red area. I also thought the emerald was hidden, like you have to "click" to dig or something. Clicked like 10 minutes lol.

    I just got a Transformer Book, and aside from the touchscreen being a terrible interface for playing this, it seemed to run just fine. I believe it runs x86 Windows 8.1.

    .. well, that's an interesting development. I found out the cause of everyone's emerald-disappearing thing. People's signatures breaking the div tags of the forum. Ha ha ha ha.. ha.. This might take a little time to find a solution for, but there will be one.
