SILENT HILL 3 WALKTHROUGH: by CHESH THE CAT. Current Version: 4.5 TABLE OF CONTENTS AT END OF FILE DUE TO POSSIBLE SPOILERS. THANK YOU. ^___^ This faq is by no means finished at the current time. I would welcome criticism and especially help with it, of course you will be credited in full for that. Ok, the most important content is there. Still needs some proofreading and spellchecking and tons of feedback to be perfect, but it's useable and even playtested. ^^ Things that are still missing: - Ending Conditions - Extra Weapon Conditions - Uses for various Objects (talisman, perfume...) - The things I'm working on right now - Stuff I simply forgot - If you have additional questions for the Q/A-faq, let me have them. This thing lives of feedback. contact me at: chesh@waterpipeproductions.de ========================================== 1. INTRODUCTION ========================================== Usually a walkthrough is something that gets you past an annoying little part in a game, so you can play on happily. Just getting a passcode you need might help you to get on with a game, but I thought it would be a nice thing to have a guide that would help you in the same way a good buddy of yours would do, that has already beaten the same game. In short: This Q/A-guide will not just supply you with the solutions but instead get you back on the track with suggestions so you can get them yourself. (For those still stuck there's the solutions to all riddles and a regular walkthrough, too, of course.) ABOUT THE DIRECTIONS GIVEN IN THIS FAQ: Directions given refer to the position of your character, not yours. For example: 'Take the door to your left' means to take the door on the left side of your CHARACTER, not the left side of the screen. 'Take the door to the north' on the other hand refers (naturally) to the position on the map. All set? Good. ^^ ========================================== 2.

Here is a brief description of the way. 1st labyrinthian room: straight. right. right. left. straight, left. 2nd labyrinthian room: straight, right, left, turn around, straight. Just run straight from now on. Take a glance at that large red mark on the wall. Climb up the ladder. Pretend you didn't see all that and stay cool. Welcome to hell. Enter room S3. Gather up HAND GUN BULLETS (2x)[1x] and save if you feel like doing it. Go through the Day Room. Enter the Storeroom. Take the elevator down to B3. Solve the puzzle and open the crematorium door. Get the CREMATED KEY. Take the elevator up to F2. Go to the Men's Locker Room to receive another phone call. Go to the Women's Locker Room and get HEALTH DRINK (1x)[1x] and PLASTIC BAG. As much as you may detest it, you must go back to F3 one more time. Get to Examining Room 4 and fill that PLASTIC BAG with blood. Take the elevator down to F1. Go to the Examination Room. Get an AMPOULE (1x)[1x], Save if you need to. Take a trip to the Day Room through the northern door and read the book. Use the CREMATED KEY on the Day Room's eastern entrance.

Use the PLASTIC BAG filled with BLOOD on the altar. Descend the ladder. Watch a cutscene. BOSS: LEONARD. Get a nifty TALISMAN Leonard was holding onto. Watch another cutscene. __________________________________________ SILENT HILL: __________________________________________ Head back to Motel Room 106. Watch some more cutscenes. Follow Nathan Avenue in north-eastern direction. If you are disappointed that SH3 doesn't offer you more possibilities to actually explore Silent Hill, I know what you're feeling. __________________________________________ AMUSEMENT PARK: __________________________________________ Having a deja vu? This is indeed the Amusement Park from earlier. Not much has changed aside from the fact that it is now crawling with monsters worse than ever. So don't waste time, go directly to the Souvenir Shop. Gather up the items there. Get a shock and turn around to find that some chocolate boxes have fallen from the shelves. Get the ROLLER COASTER KEY from one of the boxes and save, if you feel like it. Don't leave that AMPOULE(1x)[1x], HANDGUN BULLETS(2x)[2x] and BEEF JERKY(1x)[1x] behind. Proceed as before to the Mountain coaster, don't bother with the enemies. Unlock the door on the roller coaster control cabin and turn off the power. Also take those two HEALTH DRINKS(2x)[1x] at the far end of the room with you Head down the roller coaster track. Now you know why your mommy always warned you of doing stuff like that. Watch the cutscene, then head inside the Haunted Mansion. Enjoy the scenery. If the ceiling is giving you any trouble, go into caution mode (R2) and walk forward. The spikes won't spear you anymore. Take the bullet vest off before you go through the door marked with 'exit'. Run like hell. Run past the first door, (it's locked) until you arrive at one with a couple of steps in front of it. Be quick with that doorknob. It's not yet time to take a breather. Run on some more. The hallways layout is almost the same as the prior one, so no need to worry. Hooray, you're out again. And there's a great flock of monsters to welcome you, too. Head straight and then left towards that green fence. Take that passage. Head straight again and take the first left there is. Go through that greenish gate. Once again, avoid all monsters and just run straight and through that gate. Get one HEALTH DRINK(1x)[0x] and SHOTGUN SHELLS (1x)[1x] to your left, don't forget the red shoe that lies on top of the stage. Also take the chain with you. Read the mascot signs on the walls for a good laugh. Head back through the greenish gate, go straight and then right onto that SWING ROCKET-spaceship-go-round platform. Connect the chain to the pipe sticking out from the center column, then go over to the gate and connect it there, too. (In case you're wondering, it is still in your inventory.) Go inside the control booth, pick up the HANDGUN BULLETS (1x)[1x] and turn the power on. You should be able to do that with more than just one door. ^^ Watch the cutscene. Go through the gate and then right into the Fortune house. Get Douglas' notebook. Pick up the DOLL HEAD. Save if you need to. Head into the Maerchen Travel building. Look at the statues. Give Snow White the DOLL HEAD and Cinderella the RED SHOE. BOSS: Prepare to fight the lv. 78 PROP DRAGON OF DOOM. Just kidding. Go through the door on the lefthand side. Start running. Run straight, then take a left, turn right again and examine the notepad on the ice cream wagon. Get the STUN GUN BATTERIES(2x)[2x] and turn left again. Run on till you reach a ticket booth, turn left and go through that gate. Pick up that precious FIRST AID KIT (1x)[1x] to your left. Go onto the carousel. Read the note pinned to the horse. Start slashing the horses with your favorite melee weapon and prepare for a boss fight. BOSS: THE MEMORY OF ALESSA. After the fight, get off the carousel and go straight. Read the prayer on the walls, if you like. Watch the cutscene. __________________________________________ THE CHURCH: __________________________________________ Get the EYE OF THE NIGHT TAROT CARD. Save if you need to. Prepare for the most disturbing level in the entire game. Head right to get the map hanging on the wall. Enter the confession box. You'll have to make a choice here. a - Forgive Claudia b - Say nothing The choice you make here will slightly influence your endings. Go down the hallway. The far door is locked, so take the other one to the east, go through that room. Try to avoid the two Insane Cancers in front of the doors and go through the northern one first. Head all the way down the hallway. In the middle, you'll hear crying and footsteps. Look around and follow the footsteps on the floor, then push that painting aside. Don't go inside yet. That's the biggest savepoint you'll ever find. Save if you need to, look at the pictures and go back. Look at the wheelchair, then go through the door that was hidden behind the painting. Head down the hallway. Got to the far end of it. You'll find yourself in a library. Read the books in there if you're interested in some background. Get THE MOON TAROT CARD from the desk at the end of the room. Watch the cutscene. Get back out and take the elevator downstairs (right opposite of the door you came into this room the first time.) Go right and take that door, then go all the way straight. You'll be in a sort of human wastedump. Get THE HANGED MAN TAROT CARD. Also get the two packs of SHOTSHELLS(2x)[2x]. They will come in handy soon. Exit that room and go right. Enter the door at the end of the hallway. You are now in Harry's room... get the STUN GUN BATTERIES (2x)[2x] and read the diary on the bed. Back in the elevator room. Head west and enter the second last door. Go down that hallway all the way. You're in a Child's Room. Examine the sketchbook on the bed, the door and the notepad on the table. Then get the BRASS KEY from the wall. Save if you feel like it. Leave this room again and go back to where you came from. On your way, enter the last door on the right (the one after you cross that bridge from which you can see bobble head doing something... strange). Let those monsters play with themselves and proceed straight through. Listen to the sounds in the hallway. Follow the footsteps on the floor and open the hidden door. Proceed to the next room. Examine the bed. Get an AMPOULE (1x)[2x] HAND GUN AMMO (3x)[2x] and THE FOOL TAROT CARD. Leave this ghastly place. Go back up with the elevator. Visit the last room on the map you haven't visited (the one with the two insane cancers in front) and get the CASSETTE TAPE and HANDGUN BULLETS (2x)[]. Use the brass key on the door near the Confession Booth that was previously locked. Take the first door on your left. You're in a Classroom. If you have played SH1, check the table. If you haven't, do it anyway. Read K. Gordon's notebook. Another old companion. ^^ Leave the room. Go straight a bit and enter the next door to your right. You're in a Room with a Cassette Deck. Use the CASSETTE TAPE. Read the letters on the table. Leave. Do NOT enter the room you are facing right now unless you are masochistic. Turn right instead and enter the righthand side door. This is Claudia's Room. Read the Diary, the card on the desk and pick up the HIGH PRIESTESS TAROT CARD from the bed. We're all set then, so let's go back to the Child's Room. Solve the Tarot Card Puzzle on the door and proceed down that hallway. Watch the cutscene. I'm not quite sure about some endings, what you can do for certain is use the AGLAOPHOTIS inside your NECKLACE. This will have nasty consequences for all those involved. More to come soon. BOSS: THE GOD. __________________________________________ __________________________________________ Watch ending cutscenes. For Pete's sake do NOT turn off your PSX while the credits are rolling...

Silent Hill 3: Step-By-Step Puzzle Solution Guide. ========================================== How does this work? First, there's always the riddle location, items required, if any, where to find the clues and what sort of riddle you are facing. Then there's two pieces of general advice that should give you the right direction to face the puzzle. This will be followed by questions you would ask somebody else when getting stuck. To round the thing up in the end, there will be a complete and (hopefully) comprehensible explanation on the interpretation of the puzzle with its solution. I. EASY MODE I.1 BOOKSTORE PUZZLE I.2 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL F2 EAST WING DOOR PUZZLE I.3 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL ATTACHES CASE PUZZLE I.4 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL CREMATORIUM PUZZLE I.5 CHAPEL TAROT CARD PUZZLE II.

PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 1 SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 3 Pick up the books. First thing: Examine the books. Second thing: Where might they have fallen from? ========================================= Solution: Put the books back on the shelf. Duh. The code you receive is random, but it's not actually difficult to get it, so who cares. On a second note, the code has 4 digits and all of them can be found on the books' backs. If you have only found 3 numbers, please do NOT e-mail me with a code problem. Keep on looking till you have found the fourth number. It's not a game glitch. Thank you. __________________________________________ I.2 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL F2 EAST WING DOOR PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE Examine the Diary next to the door. Also examine the note on the blackboard. Press, move 2 right; press, move 1 up; press, move 2 down; press and the door shall open. First thing: You need a 4 digit code. Second Thing: Think graphical. ========================================= Solution: Well, simple really. (Hence the name EASY mode.) The note gives you directions on how to move on the keypad. If you have to move two numbers to the right, the first number can only be in the leftmost column. (numbers 1,4,7) If your next move after that is 1 up, number 1 is out of the running. (4,7) If your third move is to go down two more, 7 is out, too. Hence, the first number is 4. Going on as told in the note, the combination is: (4 6 3 9) __________________________________________ I.3 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL ATTACHES CASE PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE Sorry guys, this riddle has been cancelled for easy mode. Just read the number on the face of the alarm clock and enter it into the case. __________________________________________ I.4 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL CREMATORIUM PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE I have to disappoint you again, nothing doing. Play a higher riddle level if you want any. ^^ __________________________________________ I.5 TAROT CARD PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: TAROT CARD: The Moon TAROT CARD: The High Priestess TAROT CARD: The Fool TAROT CARD: The Hanged Man TAROT CARD: The Eye of Darkness First thing: Check out the sketchbook on the bed. Second thing: Empty your inventory a bit. ========================================= Solution: Read the Sketchbook. Look at the picture. Chose normal riddle level next time. Card postions: FOOL ooo MOON ooo EON ooo HM ooo HP ========================================== II.NORMAL MODE ========================================== __________________________________________ II.1 BOOKSTORE PUZZLE: __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 1 SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 2 SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 3 SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 4 SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 5 Get the books scattered on the floor. Go to the locked door at the northern end of the room and read the note next to it. Fair is foul and Foul is Fair, Put these books out of order. First thing: You need a code to enter into the keypad. Second thing: Examining things closely will lead you to success. ========================================= Solution: Keep changing the books' order till you can read a number on their backs. Enter this number into the keypad. Done. One of the numbers is very hard to read as it is on one of the cracks between the books, so please stop mailing me about it. The code has FOUR digits and you can find them ALL if you examine the books closely. __________________________________________ II.2 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL F2 EAST WING DOOR PUZZLE: __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE Read the note next to the door. The first is larger than the second. The second is twice the third. The third is smaller than the fourth. The fourth is half the first. Four of the numbers are not repeated, Three are not in the top row, Two are not in the right row. One of the numbers is the final key. Those of you that have played through Silent Hill 2 may have a d√©ja vu at this place. Or maybe you are just wondering why the hell they always lock that patient wing door so tightly... Surely it must piss off the nurses to solve a riddle every time they have to go in there to change a bedpan. ^^ This simply is another keypad puzzle. (There must be a shop in Silent Hill that specializes in fitting keypads to doors and writing cryptic riddles as access codes... I think I ran across it somewhere on Sanders/Neely Street... the THERE WAS A HOLE IN HERE. IT'S GONE NOW. COMPANY or something like that...). First thing: Math lessons do pay off occasionally. Second thing: Remember what you want to know. ========================================= Solution: Equations - Ok, let's use what we hopefully learned in our invaluable math lessons: variables. Numbers 1 to 4 are now just the letters a to d to avoid further confusion. a > b ; b = 2xc ; c < d ; d = a/2 ; Positioning - Well, four of the numbers are not repeated, that means there must be at least 4 different keys to be pressed. 1 2 3 1, 2 and 3 form the top row, 4 5 6 3, 6 and 9 the right one. 7 8 9 If 2a equals d and 2c equals b, we have only a few limited possibilities: 12 24 36 48. Combined with the fact that a is greater than b and c is smaller than d we only have four possibilities left. Now we apply the rest of the positioning clues to it, and the solution to this riddle and the passcode that will ensure your journey to continue reads thus: (8; 6; 3; 4) __________________________________________ II.3: BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL ATTACHES CASE PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: BRAIN LEVEL 1 (NONE) I'm not sure whether this is considered a riddle, anyway, I imagine it must be more than frustrating getting stuck in this place, so here's how to get unstuck. There is a tattooed body on a stretcher in some room, check out his tattoo. It says something like: "The starting time is my key." Upon entering room M4 the alarm clock will go off. Shut that blasted noisemaker up and read the time. Rewrite the time in a digital watch format. Enter these four digits into the attaches case. Just try out the a.m. and p.m. times. __________________________________________ II.3: BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL CREMATORIUM PUZZLE __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE I'd like to thank KATANASOUL for pointing the plate out to me. First thing: take a good look around. Q: I did, there's nothing but a bunch of beds with numbers and some dead people. How am I supposed to open that damn lock?! A: Well, you are close. Take a closer look at the numbers. Q: Ok, there's total disorder, but who cares. What are you on about? A: Actually, there is a system. Try to be more attentive towards things as colors and surfaces. Q: Enough already. Out with it, what's the answer. A: Well, next to the lock there is a plate on the crematorium door with the layout of the room on it. Roman numerals will show you which digit corresponds to which bed. So the bed that stands on the field with the roman number I will give you the first digit, the on position II the second, and so on. The number is random, so I can't include it here. And this all you need to know to open the lock. __________________________________________ II.5: CHILDREN'S ROOM TAROT CARD PUZZLE __________________________________________ You might remember that door from your first visit on the Hill. And, yes, it's locked again. But instead of getting the five uberholy items, you'll have to gather five Tarot cards this time and then put them into the correct slots on the door. Someone seems to have wanted to make sure that no one snuck out of that room at night. ^^ ITEMS NEEDED: TAROT CARD: The Moon TAROT CARD: The High Priestess TAROT CARD: The Fool TAROT CARD: The Hanged Man TAROT CARD: The Eye of Darkness Now the first thing you must know, Is that there's something in each row. But that is not the half of it: Three would be too hard to fit. The upside-down man under the ground, to his right, to his left there is no one around Leave him alone though his tears are profound. The moon is up, above the sky, Full or crescent, floating high. Twinkling light sits like a clown On the head of a crazy clown. Your excellency praying to God most high Do you think you can tell me why You always look up at the night sky? Do you have it now? You didn't forget? One major point you mustn't omit. And now at the last, before you take a whack Here's one more hint to help you keep on track. Scary and hateful that thing in the night Better be careful - it's not on your right! Turn to the left and you'll keep it in sight. First thing: All is here, this should be a piece of cake. Second thing: Smoking is hazardous to your health. ========================================= Solution: Well, what we know is that every row contains AT LEAST one card, but AT MOST 2 cards. The upside-down man is the Hanged Man, he is under ground, in other words in the last row. There is no one to his left or his right, so he is in the middle. The Moon is floating high, so it is in the top row. It sits like a clown on the head of some crazy clown. So The Fool must be right underneath it. Your Excellency means the High Priestess. She looks up at the night sky, so The Moon must be above her. Since the Hanged Man blocks the entire lower row, the Priestess must be in the middle row. The scary and hateful thing in the night is, of course, the EYE OF NIGHT. it's not on the right, but on the left. With all these conditions, there is only two possible combinations left. The one that will get you on is this one: EON ooo MOON HP ooo FOOL ooo HM ooo ========================================== III.HARD MODE ========================================== __________________________________________ III.1: BOOKSTORE PUZZLE: __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 1: Romeo and Juliet SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 2: King Lear SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 3: Macbeth SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 4: Hamlet SHAKESPEARE ANTHOLOGY 5: Othello Go to the door in the western part of the shop. You'll find it's locked and there's a keypad on it. On the right side of the door, there is a note. Read it. The full text reads as follows: In here is a tragedy --- art thou player or audience? Be as it may, the end doth remain: all go on only toward death. The first word at thy left hand: a false lunacy, a madly dancing man. Hearing unhearable words, drawn to a beloved's grave --- and there, mayhap, true madness at last. As did this one playing at death, find true death at last. Killing a nameless lover, she pierced a heart rent by sorrow. Doth lie invite truth? Doth verity but wear the mask of falsehood? Ah, thou pityful, thou miserable ones. Still amidst lies, though the end cometh not, wherefore yearn for death? Will thou attend thy beloved? Truths and lies, life and death: a game of turning white to black and black to white. Is not a silence brimming with love more precious than flattery? A peaceful slumber preferred to a throne besmirched with blood? One vengeful man spilled blood for two; Two youths shed tears for three; Three witches disappeared thusly; And only the four keys remain. Ah but veryly... In here lies a tragedy. Art thou player or audience? there is something which cannot become a puppet of fate or an onlooker, peering into a cage. First thing: This riddle gives you the sequence in which to rearrange the books. Second thing: The roman numerals on the back of the books are the keycode. ========================================= Solution: This particular riddle requires a little knowledge on Shakespeare. If you have read one or two of those books and remember vaguely what happened, you should be fine though. If you haven't read them but still want to find out without bothering to read several hundred pages worth of text or worse, go to the theatre 5 times, go here: http://absoluteshakespeare.com/guides/summaries/shakespeare_summaries.htm Thanks to POGANIN for correcting my faulty interpretation of this toughy. Now, here's how the verses relate to the books, of course this is all just my version, but it works out: 1st VERSE: The first word at thy left hand: We start from the left side. ^^ a false lunacy, a madly dancing man. Queen Gertrud protects Hamlet by stating he is insane. The gravedigger/clown guy hamlet meets on the graveyard. Hearing unhearable words, drawn Hamlet, being called by his father's ghost to a beloved's grave --- and there, This refers to Ophelia's funeral. mayhap, true madness at last. Well, he seemed rather mad in the end. Or it might just refer to things that happen in general, when he battles Laertes, for instance. As did this one playing at death, Juliet, trying to feign her own death. find true death at the last. As you should know. ^^ Killing a nameless lover, she pierced a heart rent by sorrow. Her own, in fact. Doth lie invite truth? This would hold true for most Shakespearean tragedies. Doth verity but wear the mask of falsehood? This is supposed to be about Othello, but I can't explain why. Ah, thou pityful, thou miserable ones. Othello, too, can't see why though. Still amidst lies, though the end cometh not, wherefore yearn for death? King Lear yearned for it, but it wouldn't come. Instead he survived his own daughter... poor guy. Will thou attend thy beloved? Truths and lies, life and death: The only daughter that was truly loyal to Lear, Cordelia. a game of turning white to black and black to white. This would have matched Othello perfectly... ah, well. Is not a silence brimming with love more precious than flattery? As GLOCK20 pointed out to me, this is a reference to one of the key scenes in King Lear, the one in which King Lear wants to give half of his kingdom to the daughter who will best express her love for him. Lear misunderstands his only faithful daughter Cordelia when she tells him, she cannot speak because her love for him cannot be put into words, while the other two tell him sweet lies. A peaceful slumber preferred to a throne besmirched with blood? Like the throne Macbeth gets by murdering old King Duncan. As Poganin points out, there is a Kurosawa movie named 'Throne of Blood' which reenacts Shakespeare in feudal Japan. (It is, like all Kurosawa movies, (my favourite is 'The 7 Samurai') an excellent film and you should watch it if you have the occasion.) One vengeful man spilled blood for two; Anybody out for revenge? Well, Hamlet for one, to avenge his murdered father. Two youths shed tears for three; Matches only Romeo and Juliet and perfectly at that. Three witches disappeared thusly; You know, those from Macbeth: 'By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes. ' And only the four keys remain. Nope, not the great Speare this time. ^^ So, you might wonder, what do those last lines mean? Obviously they contain several of the aforementioned plays. Maybe you have to do something with the corresponding numbers. Q: I just can't solve it. Give me something to work with. A: In detail: The solution to this puzzle is: Hamlet,Romeo and Juliet, Othello, King Lear and Macbeth. In Roman numerals IV, I, V, II, III. (Arabic: 4,1,5,2,3) Q: Ok, that's the sequence, i'm sure of it. BUT IT WON'T WORK!! A: There's one more verse to be taken into consideration... Q: Right, you know-it-all... what's with all the bleeding and crying? A: Well, since the characters that are described here are from books that were already mentioned before, you might have to change their corresponding numbers... Q: And what bloody characters are those supposed to be? A: Think now. Who was out for revenge? Someone who lost a person very close to him maybe? Someone who would kill to get his right? Two youths. That sound familiar? Two young people? Did they know each other? Did they like one another maybe? Three witches. By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes. Q: Right, I get it now. What do I do with the numbers now? A: Rather hard to hint at that. The vengeful man spilled blood for two... TWICE as much as that for one man. The two youths shed tears for three... THREE TIMES as much as one alone would have been able to shed. The witches disappeared. There were witches here. They are gone now. They left NOTHING behind, absolutely nothing. Q: I give up, that riddle is stupid and totally incomprehensible and the fact that you wasted precious time and energy with it, fills my heart with sadness. A: Strange, I felt similar about all of this. ^^ Here's the full explanation though: So the vengeful man spilled blood for two, he should get credit for that. Let's multiply his number with two. 2x4=8 (8,1,5,2,3) Two youths shed tears for three? That's not fair, they should get their value multiplied with three for that, too. 3x1=3 (8,3,5,2,3) The three witches disappear. Well, good riddance. ^^ (8,3,5,2) Now really only four keys remain: 8 3 5 2 Go for it. __________________________________________ III.2 Brookhaven Hospital F2 Puzzle: __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE The door is locked with one of those unbreakable quality Silent Hill keypad locks (R), featuring numbers 1 to 9. (Didn't you ever wonder why in most action movies they just have to shoot those things to get them open? Well, I tried, but it wouldn't work for me. Guess those locks are action-hero-proof or something. ^^) Next to the door on the west side wall you will find a long memo, read it. The text goes as follows: Pure eyes, blue like a glassy bead--- You are always looking at me and I am always looking at you. Ah, you're too meek--- beautiful, unspoiled: thus I'm so sad, I suffer--- and so happy, it hurts. I want to hurt you and destroy myself What you would think if you knew how I felt. Would you simply smile, not saying a word? Even curses from your mouth would be as beautiful as pearls. I place my left hand on your face as though we were to kiss. Then I suddenly shove my thumb deep into your eyesocket. Abruptly, decisively, like drilling a hole. And what would it feel like? Like jelly? Trembling with ecstasy, I obscenely mix it around and around: I must taste the warmth of your blood. How would you scream? Would you shriek "It hurts! It hurts!" as cinnabar-red tears stream from your crushed eye? You can't know the maddening hunger I've felt in the midst of our kisses, so many of them I've lost count. As though drinking in your cries, I bring my hopes to fruition: biting your tongue, shredding it, biting at your lips as if tasting your lipstick. Oh, what euphoric heights I would reach, having my desires fulfilled like a greedy, gluttonous cur. I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my tongue. I would surely be healed, and would cry like a child. And how is your tender ear? It brushes against my cheek; I want it to creep up to my lips so I can sink my teeth into its flesh. Your left ear, always hearing words whispered sweet as pie--- I want it to hear my true feelings. I never lied, no... but I did have my secrets. Ah, but what must you think of me? Do you hate me? Are you afraid? As though inviting you to the agony at the play's end; if you wish, you could destroy me--- I wouldn't care. As you wish, you may destroy me --- I wouldn't care. That's it. 15 verses. First thing: Look for things that could be converted into a keypad code. Second thing: Hard mode puzzles require a great deal of abstraction. ========================================= Solution: I admit, this one gave me a hard time myself. We had some discussions over it on the SHF and when I finally solved it with my patented doodling method, I was rather unsatisfied with the result. sin1982cl however came up with a far more logical explanation for this one, and that's why my credit goes out to him. I had to edit it his explanation a bit, though. ^^ As often in puzzles that are about abstraction, you have to relate two things without obvious connection to one another. Same thing here. As you might have noticed while reading the poem, it deals with facial parts. Now we can overlay the important areas of a face to a keypad without problems. It looks like this: 1 2 3 eye eye 4 5 6 ear nose ear 7 8 9 cheek mouth cheek Most of this riddle is simply fillers, what we have to focus on is the parts of the face that are connected with the riddlemakers mouth. He seems to be a little cannibal. " ...I place my left hand on your face as though we were to kiss then I suddenly shove my thumb deep into your eyesocket,..." If you were standing face to face to another person, your left hand would touch his right side. So this has to be the RIGHT eye. "...I must taste the warmth of your blood. How would you scream? Would you shriek "It hurts! It hurts!" as cinnabar-red tears stream from your crushed eye?..." "...taste the warmth of our blood..." is the important bit. The blood is another thing we have to watch since he has to lick it up to taste it.Since the bloody tears are streaming DOWNWARDS, this means we have to go DOWN from our starting position (on #1) and move on to #4. "...I bring my hopes to fruition: biting your tongue, shredding it, biting at your lips as if tasting your lipstick..." "...biting at your lips..." is our next point of interest. This can be clearly placed as the mouth area and thus #8 on the keypad. "...I longed, too, for your cherry-tinted cheeks, tasty enough to bewitch my tongue..." the "..cherry-tinted cheeks..." are what our flesh-loving friend is after next, which corresponds to either 7 or 9. "...your left ear, always hearing words whispered sweet as pie..." the left ear corresponds with key #6. This leaves us with two possibilities for the final combination: 4896 and 4876 We decided on choosing the left cheek variant, because it is located between the mouth and the left ear, so you might imagine our riddler to first bite the mouth, lick the cheek and then bite the ear. The sequence would therefore be 4 8 9 6, which proves to be the final combination. __________________________________________ III.3 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL ATTACHES CASE PUZZLE __________________________________________ 'The starting time is the key' This is not a riddle to me, so I'll just tell you that the solution is the same as on normal riddle mode. __________________________________________ III.4 BROOKHAVEN HOSPITAL CREMATORIUM PUZZLE: __________________________________________ ITEMS NEEDED: NONE Go and read the ten memos that are scattered around the room. Then proceed to read the poem inscribed on the crematorium door. Once you've got all that, you are ready to attack that combination lock. The memos read as follows: (the number represents the bed on which it is found, the titles are what the memos are called in the memo-screen): 1. Song of the Sparrow: Who killed Cock Robin? "The Sparrow," they said "He wants them all dead To him honey-sweet is their sobbin'." 2. Song of the Owl: The Owl who forgot the sky Resigned to his poor earthbound state Hungry of full didn't matter at all, He ate and he ate and he ate. 3. Song of the Thrush: The grass the Thrush so loved to eat Gave him sweet happiness He sank ever deeper and finally fell To destruction and fatal distress. 4. Song of the Robin: Cock Robin, who hid the key away Is ash in the oven all right. The place he held is empty now And the doors remain shut tight. 5. Song of the Lark: The Lark's child lost all his words And walled himself up all away. Heart and mouth both locked up tight In a cage where no one want to stay. 6. Song of the Dove: The Dove's hope died, he chose his path His flapping wings fell still Drenched in scarlet there he lay His cheeks pale white an chill. 7. Song of the Linnet: He seeks out her soul by his own black ambition. Frightening her out of her wits Whispering love songs in her ear What cruel Linnet wants, he gets. 8. Song of the Rook: The black Rook is the praying sort Who hears the gods in the skies His whispered petitions go on without end And glassy and dim are his eyes. 9. Song of the Wren: The Wren with pure heart as yet unrefined Makes us laugh unto his feeble lip-smacking But still we all know he shall never grow old And he knows not how much he is lacking. 0. Song of the Kite: The Kite hot, crazy and panting mad Sweet shackles that tease and excite Death itself would drive him wild Red blood that turns milky white. Crematorium door: Burn the one who knows no death Pure, adored by those above No prayers within, just simple love And now the pining hunter The flames longing for his rebirth A distant flame within the earth. Burn up that heavy body of his Make it wind, dancing in the sky That bottomless gut now a cloud, now a sigh The sweet blood on his laughing lips Now calls him to the gates of hell There burns evermore that soulless shell. Four bodies return to ashes Thus the door is opened Thus the door is opened First thing: There's four numbers on the combination lock. Second thing: There's four verses on the crematorium door. Q:I don't see what the connection between those birds and the numbers for the keys should be... A:Check the environment more closely. Especially the beds. Q:So all I have to do this time is match the memo numbers to the verses on the crematorium door? A:Yes, this one is a piece of cake... though the clues tend to be a bit mushy at times. ========================================= Solution: As mentioned before, you have to match four of the birds to the four verses of the poem on the crematorium door. The first one: "Burn the one who knows no death Pure, adored by those above No prayers within, just simple love.", refers to the Wren, as his heart is pure and his lip-smacking for us is a sign of the simple love within him. The second verse: "And now the pining hunter The flames longing for his rebirth A distant flame within the earth.", refers to the Owl. A hunting bird, but bound to earth, this matches exactly the description in the memo. Third verse:"Burn up that heavy body of his Make it wind, dancing in the sky That bottomless gut now a cloud, now a sigh", refers to the Linnet. Actually I thought this was the perfect match for the owl at first, but then I remembered that Linnet are real gluttons and are known for eating three times their weight in a single day. That is also where he got his name: This peculiar bird tends to eat so much flaxseed, that it cannot fly anymore. The old word for flax was Lin or Linnen. (I'm not making this up, check a dictionary. ^^) Fourth verse:"The sweet blood on his laughing lips Now calls him to the gates of hell There burns evermore that soulless shell.", refers to the Sparrow. Since he loves to make the Robins suffer, there is blood on his lips and he is smiling because he just killed one. The final sequence therefore is: Wren, Owl, Linnet, Sparrow. Or in numbers: (9; 2; 7; 1) __________________________________________ CHILDREN'S ROOM TAROT CARD PUZZLE: __________________________________________ ITEMS REQUIRED: EYE OF NIGHT TAROT CARD (XXII) HANGED MAN TAROT CARD (XII) THE FOOL TAROT CARD (0) HIGH PRIESTESS TAROT CARD (II) THE MOON TAROT CARD (XVIII) On the bed you will find a notebook.

FIGHTING TACTICS GUIDE: ========================================== BOSS FIGHT: SPLITWORM. The splitworm does not require any sophisticated tactical work. Equip your bullet vest, keep your distance to the opening he comes out from and shoot him when he sticks his head out. 1 to 3 clips will do the trick. BOSS FIGHT: MISSIONARY. There is no elaborated tactic known to me. Anyway, a basic one will do the trick here, too. Wait till the monster approaches you to cut you in half, then run sideways and let him have a full salvo, preferably from the shotgun. When he is down, give him some more to swallow and he shouldn't be doing much damage to you. BOSS FIGHT: LEONARD. Don't let go of that search view button. (L2) Get any gun you like and best equip your bullet vest as well. Follow him when he submerges and once he pops up again, quickly circle him and make him eat lead. There's only one thing you have to look out for: his long arms. Stay out of his reach and he can't harm you. One of the many advantages of using firearms. Sounds simple, smells simple, tastes like chicken. BOSS FIGHT: THE MEMORY OF ALESSA. Well, the first 'Alessa' only brings a knife and a pretty mean punch with her. Simply outrun her, wait till she tries to stab you and then shoot her with the hand gun or slice her with the Katana. The Stun Gun works to great effect also. The second 'Alessa' packs some artillery, which makes fighting her very similar to fighting Cibyl. You can hide behind horses and use them same tactics on her than you did on the previous one. Third 'Alessa' will attack you with a pipe... She is consequently rather slow and is easily dealt with, using the evade and shoot tactic. Fourth 'Alessa' Packs a submachine gun... better not let her use it. Although the SMG bursts can be evaded when running or hiding behind horses, best stay close to her, BOSS FIGHT: THE GOD Ooh, a god, scary. The bastard sends homing hellfire lv. 7 after you... No reason to break a sweat though, just stay well out of range of his enormously long appendages and evade his fire attacks. Once you've evaded one of the latter, shoot him a couple of times with the handgun and when he goes down use the biggest piece of artillery you can. If you are low on ammo, you may also use melee weapons. If you are out of ammo, things will get nasty. You have to evade his fire attacks several times and stay close to him till he goes down, then attack his head with a melee weapon and bail out of there again... Pretty time- consuming work, but still a way of defeating him. Shouldn't take too long if done correctly. CRACKERJACK has found an even more elegant way of dealing with the god: To put it simple: when you enter the arena, you can spot crescent shaped markings on the floor and Claudia's dress, these will help you find the right positions. Walk forward to the hem of the dress, don't get nervous because of your Proximity to the "god". Now maintain that distance and head to the right, to the inner edge of the crescent markings. You will be save from her swipes there while she is still standing. You can bring her down with a couple of well- placed shots now, or just wait till she goes down by herself. Once she is down, move towards her till you are about level with her wrist, still maintaining the same distance to the socket she rests on (marked as Position 2). Get out the maul and start beating her around the head with it. You will be save from her swipes if you have found the right position. This might take a bit of fine tuning, but it works and really good at that, too. When she gets back up, move to Position 1. Proceed in this vein till you've beaten her head in and you are done. Check the diagram to get a better idea of this method. Diagram: GOD ___________________________________________________ socket she rests on \ / \ / \ RW LW / ---P1-------P2-------- \ CD / \ / \ / _ crescent shaped markings, edge of the flame area RW = Right Wrist (crouching Position) LW = Left Wrist (crouching Position) CD = Claudia's Dress -- = Line to follow when canging positions P1 = Position for standing mode P2 = Position for crouching mode ========================================== 7. EXTRA WEAPONS: ========================================== Upon every consecutive clear, you will be awarded with an extra weapon. The conditions upon which they are awarded have not yet been cleared yet, I'll try to add this as soon as I understand them. Here's how to find them: BEAM SABER: The name is the game. Found as a replacement door knob on the far west end of the 2nd floor in the Shopping Mall. FLAMETHROWER: Found in Helen's Bakery, also on the 2nd floor of the Shopping Mall. Read the note under it. ^^ UNLIMITED SMG AMMO: Found in the dead end alley, right after you exit the bathroom window. No, it's not a bandana. HEATHER BEAM: Equipped from the beginning. Can only be used when no weapon is equipped. It has two firing modes: Heather Beam: Homing white balls of light that pursue targets. Not even that weak, once you have mastered their use. NRJ Octagons: Octagonal (??) shaped energy formations that need to be aimed by you. Pretty powerful and neat to look at. When used with the Transform Costume, it produces other results: Sexy Beam: Like the Heather Beam, only that it is pink and you don't shoot 2 balls, but 8 instead. On top of that, there's a weird shaped energy thingy shooting out that you can aim with the D-pad or the stick. Simply devastating. Eye Laser: The name is the game. Heather shoots two laser beams from her eyes... Extremely useful when facing enemies at a distance. Heather and Sexy Beam can be unleashed by simply pressing X. The Eye Laser and the Energy Octagons can be produced by tapping forward + X on the D-pad, and then need directing. ========================================== 8. EXTRA COSTUMES: ========================================== Extra costumes can be unlocked at the Extra Costumes screen. (duh.) They require passwords which can be found throughout the game or are awarded with game clears. Here's an incomplete list of the costumes available. NOTE: those passwords are case-sensitive. HappyBirthDay : Heather shirt TOUCH_MY_HEART : Don't Touch Shirt LightToFuture : The Light Shirt ShogyouMujou : Transience Shirt BlueRobbieWin : Killer Rabbit Shirt 01_03_08_11_12 : Royal Flush Shirt cockadooodledoo : Golden Rooster Shirt GangsterGirl : God of Thunder Shirt I_Love_You : Onsen Shirt PrincessHeart : Transform Costume (un- and reequip for some serious fun.)

The Light Shirt : the picture is from SH1. It can be found on the 3rd floor of Alchemilla Hospital and is titled: 'The Light illuminating the Darkness' Killer Rabbit Shirt : yep, those are the bunnies from the Amusement Park. ^^ God of Thunder Shirt: not 100% sure about that, but I think it shows Raijin, the ancient Japanese god of thunder. The tattoos on her arms seem to be Japanese or Chinese ink drawings. I can't yet give any information about those on her hands because I still haven't seen any screencaps. I'll try and find out, though. Onsen Shirt : well, IIRC, onsen means hot springs in japanese. So this must be the fan shirt of some unknown spa. ^^ My friend Makube told me that written above the symbol is the word 'household' and that the symbol on the bottom stands for some bath... (I thought it was a steaming mug) Is this an advice for hardcore gamers to take baths more often? ^^ Transform Costume : Hm... I guess this thing should ring a bell with everyone. In case it doesn't: sailor uniform. Un- and reequip it for a cool cutscene. ^^ Royal Flush Shirt : As from the SHF points out, this thing has a very interesting history of its own. I hope that, with the help of Skyfox, I can bring it to you. Game Reactor Shirt : Game Reactor is free gaming mag in Norway, Denmark and Finland. Not in Germany, though. Play Shirt : The shirt from a rather new german game mag called (can you guess it?)'Play'. url: http://www.playplaystation.com (It says so on the shirt's back). The front features the ever so popular winged flaming skull. Heather goes Heavy Metal. 13Ëme Rue Shirt : 13Ëme Rue is a french Horror and action network, broadcasting 24/7 nowadays. If you want to. Visit their webpage if you want to order your very own TreiziËme Rue Shirt. ========================================== ENDINGS: ========================================== EXTREME SPOILERS: Known to me so far are three endings: (Of course this does NOT mean that's all you can get.) NORMAL : Heather defeats Claudia, who had tried to give birth to god after Heather 'aborted' him. Having killed Claudia, Heather is once more overwhelmed by the sadness she feels because of losing her dad, Harry. Cut. The Amusement Park. Douglas has managed in spite of his broken leg, to find a bank to sit on and has fallen asleep. Heather approaches and Douglas wakes with a start. On recognizing her, he smiles and asks her whether all is over now. Heather, holding the knife in her hand, keeps her stony face. She approaches Douglas and says in a tone that sends shivers up your spine: 'Not yet... You're still alive.' Douglas' face is contorted with panic. Heather approaches him and he knows that he cannot escape her. Suddenly Heather leaps towards him and shouts: 'Booh.' Great relief on Douglas' side here. ^^ Heather asks Douglas to call her by her real name from now on: Cheryl. Douglas inquires whether Heather will also let her hair go back to black. She answers: 'Well, I dunno... don't you think blondes have more fun?' Credit roll. Heather kneels before Harry's grave. POSSESSED: Heather defeats Claudia, who had tried to give birth to god after Heather 'aborted' him. Having killed Claudia, Heather is once more overwhelmed by the sadness she feels because of losing her dad, Harry. Cut. The Amusement Park. A puddle on the ground. Something drips down and into it. Douglas is lying in a pool of blood. The influence of Samael seems to have been too much for Heather. As the camera pans up, you can see her bloodstained knife, Fade to black, credits. UFO : Don't want to spoil this for anyone, only this much: It's not the UFO ending, it's the REVENGE ending. Oh yeah, and it rocks. ^^ ========================================== EASTER EGGS: ========================================== Thanks to an anonymous helper who send me those: Thanks to Manuel, who pointed out the silencer to me. I'M A DETECTIVE. DETECTIVE? RIGHT. After clearing the game once, mark the EXTRA NEW GAME option and enter: UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, CIRCLE, X. Select the desired difficulty levels. If done successfully, you'll receive a very... interesting sound. Watch the cutscenes closely from now on. ^___^ DID YOU DROP THIS PIPE? When in the sewers, in the room with the monster and the outlet, go to the edge of the water and press X. Throw in your steel pipe. Answer all questions truthfully and you'll get a nifty extra. SNAKE? SNAKE! SNAAAKE!! When you enter the room with the filthy mattress (fifth floor on the construction site,) in it, bear right and examine the walls. Equip the mace and find something really useful... well, useful for MGS fans, anyway. ^^ WHO WOULD EVEN THINK OF DOING SOMETHING SO DISGUSTING?! Good news for fans of SH2: if you still have a savegame from SH2 on your memory card, it will influence the game at certain points, similar to Metal Gear Solid. ^^ The changes as discovered so far are these: - The Ladies' Room in the Alternate Mall: Examine the toilet and you will see that not everybody is as tough as good old James when it comes to manipulating the plumbing. - Daisy Ville Apartment Block: Check the letterbox. - Heaven's Night Bar: You will find a tourist information pamphlet on a table that should be very familiar to you. Also a poster is lying on the stage which you might find amusing. ^^ - Brookhaven Hospital: Go onto the roof and examine the fence near the Elevator Control Room. ========================================== THANKS GO OUT TO: ========================================== MAKUBE - for tireless translation efforts.
