Light Blue challenge - as only I would want to bring it to you!

I've been around the stage enough to have a pretty good idea of the beetle robots' detection range, but by all indications the approach at 39 should have set it off and I don't know how I managed to get past it. What I do know is that approaches like that tend to just have it shoot you immediately, without so much as a warning timer. Maybe I hit the border between immediate shot and warning shot. Maybe the fact that it was just starting to climb did something to its line of sight. Who knows. Whatever the case, it's a hell of a watch.

And even with that I can't convey the full sense of how it was made. My neighborhood had a long power failure today, and when it finally came back I think the infusion of power did something bad to the CRT on my TV. In any case, the screen I had to watch was dimmer than I'm used to, and on top of that, the picture was constantly bobbing up and down. You ought to try playing like that some time...except it's not worth deliberately breaking your TV to do so.

Oh yeah, gold challenge. I really don't want to play Metal Harbor again, especially not with a wobbly screen, but fortunately this challenge needs only evidence that's left on the level select screen. So here, have this.

Did the one with Rouge in Egg Quarters in 4:26.84

Got the Eggman one down with 73 or 74 hits, not sure if the last shot hit the plane before the counter reached a minute.

Perfect 154 Rings on my 12th try (sucky sucky)  in 1:45.79

*is awesome*

Awesome, lol

Anyway, I already have sub2 min in RH (I though the Super Emeralds were going to be a challenge?), but I guess I should also provide some proof sometimes, so let me grab my camera and I'll be back soon.

"- Defeat the Biolizard as Shadow without taking a hit during the encounter"

If getting all six hits and watching his health deplete counts as defeating, I have done this. If you have to make it to fade out, I still have to keep working on it. I don't get why biolizard can hit you in his death cutscene... poorly designed...

Um, I really don't feel like replaying the story on a new save file just to do that. Can't just anyone tell me the amount of time Knuckles can stay under water (until 1 second to death), and I'll try to always get out of the water before the time runs out...?

Sky Blue completed in 1:20.xx. 

One labelled map, the new save file, and many restarts later, Red is completed with 73.

With that, I think I'm done with the regular emeralds, woo.

...too bad I haven't recorded either CE or FR for rings yet. At least I still have this relic of the FR completion.

And fortunately I have a 32-emblem file that I used purely for ripping the "story preview" cutscenes, so that put me right at CC with a no-Air-Necklace file. There were a couple of upgrades I needed, so I got those, then I knocked out pink and blue in succession, in one video file (70MB, 19 minutes long). To go with blue, I decided not just to get all rings with Knuckles, but with the other characters too. It turns out that the lightning shield (and Sonic's ring chain) requires Rouge's Mystic Melody, but not Eggman's...of course, if you don't have Eggman's, you're trapped in the tunnel! The only ways to get out are to restart the whole stage (which makes it for naught) or to die, and there's only one way to die in the tunnel. So of course that's shown.

As far as Knuckles, the one that actually counts, I ended up limiting myself to 2 air bubbles. 1 and probably even 0 are possible, but they would require a lot more splitting up of excursions into the Kool-Aid. As far as the end, you're probably well aware that death leaves 2.9 seconds for things to happen, and the screen starts fading here after 2.6. Of course on DC I have 11 fewer rings to find, including the Big ring, but if they were there they'd both be quite easy to get from this position.

Rouge ended up taking 2 tries (not including the intentional tank after the shrine), Knuckles took 2, and Sonic took 3.  Biolizard took...a lot more than 3.

Yeah SM I've always been wondering how 584 rings is possible.

There's 524 rings in the stage, and 6 checks to manipulate, meaning you'd need to get 60 rings from them. 4 times a 5 rings box, twice a 10 rings box and once a 20 rings one.

Seeing as you need to use all 6 checks, you need to backtrack pretty much the whole level. Not only is most of the backtracking already difficult, but I also still haven't found a way to backtrack from check 4 to 3.



That being said, I easily got my 400+ rings in Final Rush with Sonic and, I easily defeated Biolizard without taking a hit with Shadow and I easily got sub2:00 in Radical Highway.

So if anyone could answer my question: how long can Knuckles stay underwated without his necklace?

Two 10s and a 20 leave only room for three 5s. Of course, disregarding checks, DC has 529 rather than 524 (the first 10 on the spiral rail turns to 5 on GC), so three will suffice.

As with all Sonic games, the drown timer is 30 seconds.

I'm 95% sure that my Biolizard time on TSC (http://www.soniccenter.org/members/groudon199/sonic_adventure_2_b/bosses/biolizard/last) was achieved without taking damage.  The ending is the only part I'm not sure about, but at least one of those 3:19 times was achieved damage-less.

SA2B White Super Emerald Challenge

- Complete Wild Canyon Mission 5, as Knuckles. Once you leave the ground of the starting platform, you may not allow Knuckles to stand on a horizontal surface, with the exception of a single pillar in the wind tunnel room, for the entire duration of the level. Choose wisely!
