Did Ron ever complete the Treasury of the Golden Orbs obj.?

Okay, though it is blurry, you can see all 3 orbs not in a pedestal below, so now I don't know if he completed the objective.




EDIT: Sorry for the pause sign, I was using Dailymotion and had to pause it to get a screencap.

When artists like LMFAO, Ke$ha, Taylor Swift, Carly Rae Jespen and Justin Bieber and songs like "Party Rock Anthem", "Call Me Maybe", "Thrift Shop" and others are succeeding in today's music industry and about 99% of the world is buying their shit and any argument you make is followed by nonsense from these people, you would wish the world had ended on 21st December 2012.

I'm convinced it was some inconsistent editing; perhaps something happened in the Treasury and the room had to be reset or something. I'm no expert on filming gameshows, so I wouldn't know how it worked, but then again if he held down the actuator for enough it might have opened (like how someone - forgot who - theorized that Bobby opened the door by pressing down on the actuator for a long time).

The Golden Orbs isn't an actuator room. All of the teams that went in that room had to complete the objective to open a door.

Alright, first of all, it's Kirk Fogg. :wink:

I have no idea if it was bad editing, like that unrealistic cut in "The Mask of Shaka Zulu" or "The Milk Bucket of Freydis". Perhaps the camera was just focusing on Katherine cheering, but this has happened before in "The Applewood Amulet of Emiliano Zapata", when the camera cuts to Robert yelling, "GO! YOU CAN DO IT!" and then Olivia is in Medusa's Lair. Since she started going up to the Observatory, I have no idea if something happened and she was allowed to take a different way when they restarted the run, or if she just made a quick change of direction.

So basically... I think that Ron probably did complete the objective. At least the editing isn't as weird as Shaka Zulu.

Can you tell me where the weird editing is in those episodes? i just want to see it for myself.

Maybe the pedestals that the players put the orbs on were broken in this run? If the run was restarted, then here's what might have happened before it: Ron might have tried all three orbs and all three pedestals (different combinations), but none of them worked. This probably resulted in time running out. After the run, the producers probably found an error in the Treasury and gave Ron another shot. If so, they probably put Ron back in the Treasury and restarted the run at about the time he started pushing buttons. Maybe the producers panned to "Fred" and Kirk in hopes of trying to hide this potential production error? During this pan, they just let Ron enter the Shrine without having to actually do anything in the Treasury.

Hopefully this makes sense.

Actually, I think this theory makes a lot of sense.  I guess this is where the phrase "Portions of this show have been edited not affecting the final outcome of the game" truly applies.

Definitely true - this is made clear when Ron pushes on the actuator by the Shrine door and it doesn't open at all.

Yeah, I think this makes sense in a way. Some sort of production error occurred during the run and the Shrine door did not open. As a result, they just let Ron bypass the room objective and as a result, none of the orbs look like they've been touched. Although its such a weird transition.

Yeah. *Ron violently hitting actuator* *Shot pans to his partner screaming "RON!!! RON!!!"*
*Camera pans back to Ron, in the Shrine of le Silver Monkey.

Watching the run again, Ron enters the Treasury with around 1:18 left on the clock and he is seen pushing the actuator by the Shrine door, but the door clearly does not open.

Then the camera pans to Kirk and Katherine (Fred) for about five seconds and then the camera pans to Ron running in the shrine. During this time period, you can hear a door opening noise similar to the one in the other three S1L9 runs that featured the Treasury.

However, as Ron exits the temple with the artifact, you can tell none of the orbs were moved at all and none were in a pedestal. During that time period when the camera was on Fred and Kirk, something must've happened in the Treasury that is hard to explain.

Sure, that would be a good idea. I thought there was one posted here at one time, but maybe it got removed.

That's because the original pictures didn't make the transition when we switched servers. Same thing happened to the "Lol Cat/Epic Fail" pictures in that topic in the Jester's Court.

As far as the Ron completing Orb objective goes, I agree with the theories. Probably some production error or something edited out.

Hopefully that picture works. Maybe Ron completed the objective, and put the orb back where he got it from? Not the best theory, but a possibility.

Edit by PPF: Fixed picture for you.

Well, it looked like no orbs changed positions at all between the time he entered the room and re-entered it with the Treasure Chest. Although its still a possibility I guess.  ;)
