    01. Introduction
    ===============================================================================
    It's being a long time since I write a guide. I'm a little rusty so please bear
    with me ok? I hope this little FAQ can help you as much as possible especially
    those who have trouble getting the Jewel Beetle.
    
    I'd also recorded a video walkthrough on how to locate the beetles; if you hate
    reading, you might want to check it out on youtube. The URL is,

    To download the lounge, press Start to bring up the Home PDA. Select Locations,
    and then select the World Map. You should be able to see Capcom's tab on the
    screen. Select it and download "RESIDENT EVIL 5 Studio Lot". It takes a while
    depending on your connection speed. Once the downloading is done, you can start
    visiting the lounge.
    
    Once you are in the lounge, you may explore around, looking at posters and play
    a mini game call "BSAA Training Mission"
    
    
    ===============================================================================
    03. How to Play
    ===============================================================================
    
    To begin the mini game, you have to talk to Reynard (Marked as "R" on the ASCII
    map below). He is located at the very end of this lounge, just follow the road
    and you should see him standing at the side of the butcher shop. Select "Start
    the mission." to enter a Lobby Window. You can start the game right away as
    this mini game can be done in solo.
    
    
    The objective on this mini game is to search for a beetle hidden in the lounge.
    It will be kept in one of the wooden crates, which you must locate and break
    open. Once you found a beetle, you must bring it back to Reynard before the
    time runs out. You are given 3 minutes to do so, but it's more than enough if
    you know how to find the crates.
    
    Here is a map tho show you where to find Reynard.

    04. Rewards
    ===============================================================================
    
    Upon a successful mission, Reynard will reward you with the beetle you found.
    You can use them as Ornaments to decorate your Personal Space
    
    There 4 kinds of beetle to be found in this mini game, they are Gold, Green,
    Brown and Jewel. The types of beetle obtained will be base on the time
    remaining when you found it. For example when the time remain is 1:25, you will
    find a Brown Beetle when you break open the correct wooden crate. Here's a list
    of the time frame for each Beetles.
    
      +-------+-------------+
      | Type  | Time frame  |
      +-------+-------------+
      | Gold  | 3:00 - 2:13 |
      | Green | 2:12 - 1:30 |
      | Brown | 1:29 - 0:31 |
      | Jewel | 0:30 - 0:00 |
      +-------+-------------+
    
    You can avoid reading further if you want to find the beetle on your own.

    05. How to locate the beetle (The easy way)
    ===============================================================================
    
    Once the mission starts, ignore everything and just head to the Arcade room
    (Marked as X on the ASCII map below). Look around the Resident Evil 5 arcade
    cabinet and observe the layout of the cardboard boxes and wooden crates on the
    floor. (The 2 wooden crates on the table don’t count.) These are the clues to
    the location of the beetle. There are a total of 6 different layouts, so watch
    carefully.

    For layout 2, the crate will be located behind the poster.
    For layout 4, the crate will be located behind the first house, go from the
    back and you will find it.
    For layout 5, just open the only crate in the room. As this is the closest spot
    to Reynard, you might want to use this to obtain the Jewel Beetle.
