Favourite time to accuse

contentedwithlife

Its been a habit of mine, when I have extra time and have confirmed my suspect with knowledge of his habits, I would accuse him/her at roughly 9-11pm.
Its just a habit so that I start the next case at that time, and usually suspects are at home after midnight..

Any favourite timings? Or are the cases too time tight?

That the use of asking for habits, so that you can plan your time to visit each houses.

I'm a "go with the flow" kind of guy. I don't plan anything. If they're home I talk to them. If not, I just look around their place for clues. It's worked for me so far...

Yes indeed, would like to know if there is a good strategy on the time of accusing.

To be honest, some of the suspects keep such odd hours that I don't realy think it makes any difference - especially as the poor townies are on duty 24/7!

@jen: Actually, the timings are predictable. I've seen it from a website (forgot which one).
They are predictable to a certain extent. Eg, someone who goes out at 10pm will reach home at 6am.
Nobody goes out from 11pm to 4am.. Hence on average suspects are at home at about 2 - 4am
Catch my drift? Just some food for thought to include into your strategies. ^^

Yes the timing are predicable ..
I found out the suspect no 1 the client..
Each suspect I found will go out at different times
Most of mine had be 01:00 or it could be 12:00pm or am..
the best thing to have it a lock pick use it wisely though as the price of key increase..

i ask when i have proof and when i'm tired of going through everyone's houses.
but it is great to me if it's first thing in the morning....going to work? no today you're going to jail. (have fun with that)

I go around in circles, 8 hour they are away and 7 hours to visit all of them. But you can get messed up if you find skeleton key or mysterious doc as they take a couple of hours to look at.

It is a good idea to start early morning or late evening, avoid midnight since the GUI callse this 12 - AM/PM

Nonsuch time, 12 before noon is same as 12 after noon - midnight.

If I'm fast running out of manipulation/money I try to do it ASAP, otherwise I wait till I've searched everyone's houses for keys, mysterious documents and so on.

What makes me do a double take in a case is when two suspects are listed as husband/wife of the deceased. Could THAT be a motive for the murder, maybe? It definitely makes me want to come to an accusation quicker.
