Eh - 3-4 stat points > no visible benefit for me right now. It might be different if I hadn't completed a perfect file before, but I'm happy with stats/ease right now. I might use the extra time to speed things up a bit once it becomes too inefficient to level Marcus.

If it's officially a glitch I'm a little less happy about it, but I've already got my own thing going here so I don't suppose anyone will care.

Going...going...gone on the total number of treasures question?

Past the sword fight at 17:49. I succeeded on a first attempt but ran into a bunch of SFX.

I'll bet on... 15 missed treasures still letting you get S Rank.

Let us know how it goes, I guess...

Sure thing - I love an audience. Is there anything in particular you'd like to hear about? Just FYI I'm going to be slow. I lost eight seconds in the circuit after the duel - pretty lousy - but I don't think I'll re-do. I might've been able to skip the Phoenix Down that falls from the ceiling when you tweak the engine (I want the Pinion) but I'm paranoid about missed treasures until I hear differently.

Someone must know that total...

I calculated out some stat paths for myself today. I think there are some errors in letao's Stat maxing FAQ, by the way. I need to double check, but I'm reasonably sure that Quina's balanced stat path with equipment is a Spirit point short (47 instead of 48) among other things.

To answer my own question:

I count 143 [F]ind treasures and 180 [C]hest treasures in Atomos' FAQ.

Add 48 for Chocographs, 22 for Dead Peppers, and 4 at the Treno auction and I come up with 397 potential points...and that's completely ignoring the [R]eward treasures, which are somewhat questionable. Considering that 340 points are needed for rank S...

I think I'll allow myself a whopping 50 skipped treasures. That should allow for plenty of ridiculousness...and more. If I someday complete this I'll confirm that it did (or didn't) work.

...replayed Steiner chase circuit, did better, skipped PD. About 1:30 ahead of target after skipping Bomb card, 60 gil on roof, and PD in engine room.

My PS2 isn't real happy about the whole thing so it's taking a break.

Not sure where you got 340 from. Anyway, Chocobo treasures are worth either 2 or 3 times as much as regular chests/field icons. Don't remember exactly whether 2 or 3, but definitely more than 1 point each.

IIRC, of course. *scared of The Wrath of Wpot should this phail miserably*

340 is exactly how many points you need for S Rank. Anyways....
