[SA1] Emerald Shard Locations per stage

Post by UltimaNumber255 » Tue Dec 12, 2017 2:52 am

Recently I've been working on getting all Emerald Shard locations in every stage. I have not found any sort of guide out there that lists every possible location, and even if there were, they only cover 90% of a single stage. I've been working on a collection of pictures showing where every single Emerald Shard is. It's not complete yet, but I would appreciate your help! When it is complete, I will show every picture here and descriptions, or at least make a HTML file out of them. I will also do a video showing where they all are as well very soon!

Here's a link to a collection of the screenshots: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1nnOkkv ... sp=sharing
I've taken the screenshots carefully, making sure the radar is red so we know for sure that's where the shard is! In some cases, we might need to distance ourselves from the Shards since two places might look the same or it would be impossible to tell up close!

Also, here's what I've found about the Emeralds:

- Certain Emerald Shards at certain places can only be a certain index. For example, the Shard in the Lion's Mouth in Casinopolis can only be the 3rd Emerald Shard, as can the Shard in the Gold Sonic Statue. This means two Shards can't be in both places.
- All indexes don't appear to have the same number of random spots. In Casinopolis, the 1st Shard can be in 1 of 5 spots. The 2nd can appear in 1 of 5 spots as well. But the 3rd can only appear in 1 of 3 places, making the 3rd Emerald Shard easy to track down.
- NEW: Every indexed Emerald has a bit of a gimmick. The first can always be just about anywhere. The second is always inside and enemy or is underground. The third can only appear in 3 places and these places are rather special, or inside an isolated room. Sky Deck reverses the first and third.

This has been done in the Dreamcast Version. If there are any DX exclusives, or Dreamcast exclusives, feel free to let me know!
Always happy to see Number and his 12 daughters and 6 sons.
