Ok I think this might be a pretty cool idea.How about Once an alibi checks our as fake or real it gets put by the persons name so we don't have to write it down or go and look again after we bring all thw suspects out. Or you could make it so once you determine if someone is a suspect or not it goes into two different lists a fake alibi list or real alibi list. or even a third list if you can't determine weather that person is real or fake because they clam up on you. Or how about if you don't like any of thos two ideas the link to the fake persons name changes color if they are found out to be fake.

Including Hall of Recs info somewhere is a good idea I think. If an agent passes a case on to another detective, they get all the case notes except for that. (Unless there's a reason that's desirable?)

Also I think it would be realistic for a detective to keep a summary list of whose alibis are fake or unproven visible on the case file page without having to click to open each person. I do keep notes, myself, but this seems reasonable to me. Whereas for hair, handedness, and body type, it seems reasonable to have to go back to the individual's file - even though I am no big fan of clicking. The clicking is worse when trying to ask questions of someone, I think. Ask the tailor about the thread. Then the specific person. Not right? Well, I want to ask again, of course! Even better would be for the person you already asked about to disappear as an option. Although one could argue that would oversimplify, I know - keep notes...

i keep notes myself but i agree like client is always bold after questioning it should not be bold anymore that way you know that you already questioned the client, just like new disappears after you have questioned then client should not be in bold after questioning (it still says client though).

it says CLIENT, in bold white letters so you know which one is your client, not to know whether or not you've questioned him/her

It makes it easier when you go back to check an alibi, leave, come back for more questions (Do you suspect Marvin Guessing?)--and finding them dead. It stinks when that happens.

Dr Falco: if u get a case from some1 else and u go to the hall of records u will see what they disscovered. so the info is still there just some clicks away.

when I first started this game, I didn't take many notes, I learned to after I got more "experienced" Why should the case files tell you everything you already know (or did you forget, i.e Jonas was with the Butcher) If this game gos that far, then wh not say since the banker is my contact, instead of just going through the list just have him tell me who wrote the note?

reda: This only works if the person checking the research has the research skill. Otherwise the new agent using the case file does not have that information. (I know, I know, everyone should get research...but for those who don't have it yet, it means you have to remember to share this info with them in a different way (IM or note on case file), while everything else is in the case file record. And in a real agency, surely the researching agent would make a note in the case file for everyone to see? At least, that is what I think.

I'd like to be able to keep case notes on the case file screen.
Or at least be able to arrange the info on the screen the way I like it. Maybe we could have a notebook window too??
It would help a lot not to have to keep looking up and down from my notes to screen. And if I have to stop in the middle and need to log off, I don't have to try and find my notes again...I have kids that use this computer too!

Fonzie i know that it reads client in bold white letters i was merley suggesting that after questioning the client is is not in bold anymore. Still saying client just not in bold. (ie CLIENT in bold, client not bold) is that more clear now.
