Welcome to your new addiction :)

Now first let me say a big thanks to CFM who had the original idea for this thread on Noir. Now that the boards are starting to have large amounts of content on them, I think it's about time we brought the thread over here.

You will find hints and tips as well as the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions on here. If you read nothing else whilst you're on this site then please please please take the time to read this thread, you will help us oldies out no end by doing so I promise.
Remember this thread isn't designed to go into anything in depth but mainly tell you the basics that you need to know about the site. If you still can't find what you're looking for try searching the first couple of pages on the boards, quite often you will see what you are looking for without having to post a new thread. If you still can't see what you are looking for then feel free to ask
You may see some minor spoilers in here but nothing that should really affect your enjoyment of the game.

Abbreviations

PE - Physical Evidence, items found in suspect's homes which are matched up to evidence found at the crime scene.
WE - Witness Evidence, evidence found from suspects when the 'proof' questions is asked.
FA - False Accusation, you will get one of these if you accuse an innocent person. 3 FAs and your detective will be retired.

You will find that some players have their own abbreviations but these are the most common abbreviations that you will need to know.

How do I know if they are guilty?

The simple rule is 3 stars + a fake alibi = guilty.
If you find a murder weapon (3 stars) and they have a real alibi they aren't guilty, ever. You must have a fake alibi in order for you to accuse. If you can't find all your stars via Physical Evidence then you will have to ask other suspects for proof.

If you already have charm skills, I would advise to learn Intimidation. You can learn both, look for a trainer when you aren't working on a case.

Ms Helen,
thank you for the tips, I can't find any tips to help me.
Maybe, you can! Ijhave collected a lot of evidence (notes, fingerprints,tabacco, footprint) and I can't retrive any of these things. When I went to the bank for handwriting, I couldn't retrive the note. What Am I doing wrong? Please hel Thanks

Fingerprints have to be checked with the police clerk; handwriting with the banker!

Why would they use Mountain Standard Time? Why not something logical like GMT!

I'm missing Suspects what do I do?

There is always at least one way of finding each and every suspect. The 3 ways to find suspects are:
Alibis - ask suspects
Leads - ask suspects
Yellow Notes - found at the crime scene and in suspects homes.

I've seen all these (above list) but the suspects don't have any leads anymore nore any available signed note. I'm still missing another suspect which may be the culprit on my case... i hope you could help...
