Hidden Compartments

Sleuth Admin

Just when life was starting to get easier for all you hard working Sleuths...

Suspects and Victims in harder mysteries have recently taken to keeping some of their more sensitive belongings in hidden compartments and secret rooms. A smart Sleuth would be well advised to spend a little extra time when investigating crime scenes and suspect homes .

Note: Hidden Compartments only exist in "Hard" Mysteries and up.

Note 2: This update has actually been in place for several days, and it appears that VERY few Sleuths had managed to spot the hidden compartments to date... So, if you are one of those who have, congratulations!

Happy Sleuthing, and keep your eyes peeled!

I am intrigued by how "hidden panels" are going to be any different than any other clues that are put in impossible to click places.

It's certainly possible to have regions of the UI that are invisible to normal clients - the first few pages of "Not Pr0n" demonstrate this, but Ben has already challenged our sleuthing skills and our browser's capabilities by hiding yellow notes at the absolute corners of the visible frame.

Realy hard to find clues can be fun but pixel hunts can become a bore.

Spoken like somebody who hasn't found any yet :P

haha, no wonder the handprint and note was hidden and i couldn't find it, end up getting an FA because of it.

Though my FA costs $390000, i'd say: Awesome Job, Ben! ^_^

Ben, I've found the hidden compartments, but I'm still missing a sample from the suspect's house. What should I do?

Hi Ben,

I really do not wish to spoil the fun for everyone, but I just did an AI favor for Bartender, there was no option to inspect the secret compartment & all I've found in the crime scene was just one key & nothing else.

Lucky me that the weapon matched to a fake alibi suspect, or else I would have quit the favor. Could you possibly check why there's no option to inspect the secret compartment? My agency member said her case have that option, but I've done 4 AI cases, none of them gives me that option.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Joseph

Hi Joseph, and anybody else who is having this problem.

If you find a secret compartment (any of them) and you are not given the option to inspect it, the reason is that your browser is holding onto a cached version of the flash file.

You should be able to fix the problem by clearing your browser cache:

I'll work on a fix the server side as well to force all browsers to clear the cache, but give the article above a try if you are experiencing the issue.
