    V. Introduction
    ---------------
    If any of the information is wrong and needs correcting please email me 
    with the correction and I will give you the credit for it. This FAQ is 
    not 
    yet complete but I will try to complete it in ample time. Most of these 
    are 
    ranks my friends and I have gotten and *TRIED* to confirm the 
    requirements 
    the best we could, again it is open to correction. Another thing to 
    remember 
    is although a certain requirement is listed it doesn't mean that it is 
    meant 
    to be there. For example, "Play Time" was listed for the Panther 
    Ranking but 
    it's been confirmed now that "Play Time" has nothing at all to do with 
    getting that rank.

    place 
    my traps and check them to find a Tsuchinoko. The box should say 
    something 
    like TCHNKO. After you are captured go to the waterfall and meet EVA, 
    after 
    the cut scene go back outside the waterfall and search the area to find 
    the 
    Tsuchinoko, do not kill it, just shoot it with the Tranquilizer gun.

    VII. Frequently Asked Questions
    -------------------------------
    
    Q: Why can't I find a Tsuchinoko, I've been looking for [time]?
    
    A: I am not sure why some people have a hard time finding the 
    Tsuchinoko, I 
    found it within one minute.
    
    Q: Where is the Tsuchinoko after I get captured?
    
    A: Go outside the waterfall after talking to EVA and it should be in 
    that 
    area, near the tree where the waterfall empties into the stream.
    
    Q: Is it true to get the Chameleon Ranking all you need is no alerts?
    
    A: Yes. You can die, continue, save, and kill as many people as you 
    want, 
    all you need to do is not get seen.
