    Make sure you've gone through all of the levels in the game. It's not necessary to beat the game, but you have to beat all of the Act 1 and Act 2 levels in the game so they are unlocked in Ranking Attack Mode.

    Once you have them all unlocked, quit to the main menu. Scroll down under Continue, and go to Xbox Live. From this menu, select Ranking Attack.

    Now all you have to do is play through all the levels again. You must finish all of the Act 1 levels as well as the Act 2 levels for the achievement. There are no lives on Ranking Attack, and it does not matter what your time is, just finish the levels and you'll get it.

    This is more tedious than challenging, but at least it will get you some practice for the S Ranks. Good luck!

    Note - It seems doing the levels out of order may delay the popping of the achievement. If you do the levels out of order, apparently quitting out to the main menu, going back into Ranking Attack mode, and doing Green Hill Zone Act 1 again will make the achievement pop.

    Sonic CyanideAre you sure you uploaded a time for each of the levels? Otherwise, I'm not sure :(

    One Winged BossDoes this also require the 30 second trails, bc I've done all the ranking attacks, but I'm still not getting the achievement.

    Sonic CyanideYou shouldn't have to get the "A 30-Second Test" achievement or do anything in the other modes.
    Did you do the levels out of order in Time Trial mode? If you did, quit to dashboard, load everything back up, and try running through Green Hill Zone Act 1 quickly and see if that does it.
    The only other thing I can think of is to make sure you uploaded a time for all 18 stages.

    One Winged BossGot it. I guess my Green Hill Act 2 time didn't register for some reason.

    Jetinho20I gess i'm a bit late to tell that but, i've completed all the ranked attack levels in both acts, and the achievement is not unlocking.
    I tried doing going back to the main menu and beating green hill act 1 and 2 again, but it didin't unlocked.
    EDIT: i did it really out of order, probably this happened because of this

    EstocoImoHow do you mean in order?
    Are you supposed to do first all act 1, and then start with Act 2?

    Or can you do Green hill act 1 and 2, then chemical plant act 1 and 2 and so on?

    TubaBoi8136I've tried playing back through green hill both act 1 and 2, and the achievement wont pop, I've checked and there is a time for all of the courses, idk what is happening does anyone know the fix?

    KJer25@Estocolmo...I had the same ? too, but decided to go with all of Act 1 first, then Act 2, playing all the levels in the order they were listed. It wound up popping as it should, at the end of Planet Wisp (modern Sonic), after my rank uploaded.
