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.

how is it possible to have a motive, fake alibi, witness testimony, and physical evidence on a suspect and still only have two stars for him?

Q: how is it possible to have a motive, fake alibi, witness testimony, and physical evidence on a suspect and still only have two stars for him?

A: I think motive and fake alibi don't give you stars on a subject. You just need them for a successful accusation.

You get 1 star for witness evidence ('proof') and 1 star for certain types of physical evidence.

When favour cases come up as cases, try looking for 'favor for Desk Sergeant'.

What happens if I check the crime scene all the suspect's houses and went around to all the shopkeeper people AND I STILL HAVE NO IDESA WHO'S GUILTY. I have one star and a motive on all the suspects and I can't figure it out.
