Hello House Master, Sir

Shame the Kitties won the cup I blame it on Dumbledor

I too would pay extra for that I haven't checked out the Making of etc... perhaps I'll have a peep, just to make sure he's not hiding in there

I'm only a distant cousin, and hopefully not as creepy

No Dalimars in The Making Of video, unfortunately, but it's worth watching anyway! I really enjoyed it.

Now back on topic or I will take 10 house points!

Look under the desk, the mobile is hidden but you should see the light it gives off and it vibrating.

WOW!! You could?? I've never been able to look in the box

This was a change made from the Beta and as far as I can remember, the majority of the content on the 3 tapes, were incorporated into the two that remained in the final version - those tapes are worth watching - I loved Jack Talon - he was too funny!

I must admit to clicking that box like crazy looking for my tape on the second play!

The phone is in the dumpster by the reception office. For help in making the call and opening the safe, check out my post here.

Swim strong!

Yup. Just watched the first of the two videos, and this was more or less 1:1 the content of the video that you found in the box at the motel.

I played the beta, and the first tape was found during the first few minutes of play. Then when I played the full version, I drove myself crazy looking for that tape at the motel (couldn't remember where I'd found it the first time) not realizing it had been moved to a much later part of the game. I added at least 30 minutes to my time looking for that tape!

I have played Dire grove as well, and was awsome, but on this one, during the demo, I had tech problems to accomplishing the tasks, plus I don't like the graphics, and the theme, is depressing! Truly disappointed, what happend to all those great : at game once released? :whistle

The most common issue with the photo development for the letter combination (other than finding the photo paper on the shelf) is understanding the "6-8" duration in the instructions. For that, just click again when the timer is right on the seven. The rest of the steps are done in a cutscene.

In the bathroom in room 2, you need to put the photo paper onto that photo machine thingy and press the switch. This starts the timer. When it gets to between the 6 & 8 click on the switch again. Pick up the paper and put it in the first tray. Once the animation has stopped you can zoom in to see the registration letters.

OH! I see what you're doing! No, you should get actual numbers for the license plate from a photo in the dark room, no need to transpose letters to numbers.

If you're stuck on the photo development part in the bathroom, try checking out the directions that are posted on the left wall. Those cover how to use the development tools in order to get the picture to show up. You'll need to first place the paper on the light device and then hit the switch to start it up.

I hope that helps!
