A place to collect what we know about Sleuth and other useful game hints.

Oh.. kay.. I just learned something (from this thread here -> http://noir.playsleuth.com/map/cityhall/post.spy?id=22890)

If this text appears in red when you open a file from another detective in the agency:

Glancing over the file, you spot a familiar name, [Suspect's name], the victim's [relation to victim]. You know a thing or two about [Suspect's name] past, maybe you'll have better luck getting answers than the last detective to work on this case.

File opened. Return to map to start working on this case.

As it turns out this means (according to Lady Emerald Devon) that one suspect unclams (if he/she clammed with the other detective), because I "know" him/her.

This is extra good for us low level detectives.







Although Lady Em has, along with biggie, conned me before. Like that time with the subscription transfering.. >;(

Just because s/he unclams, it doesn't mean s/he'll like you even better. (Especially if s-he knows ye ;) Heh.)

They still can just clam up on you.

Quoting you: "Although Lady Em has, along with biggie, conned me before. Like that time with the subscription transfering.. >;( "

What would be their motivation to "con" you? You could have misunderstood something they said, or they may have been mistaken in some advice but I sincerely doubt they have nothing better to do than ponder ways to (?) whatever you think their motive would be.

Lady Em and biggie both are good friends to many people in Sleuthville and have been extemely helpful to a great number of detectives including you I'm sure.

Aww, thanks Sophie, that's really sweet of you to say!

Its true though, we totally tried to con him into subbing twice.

(just kidding, who knew you couldnt transfer a sub to an already existing detective? not us :)

Exactly. And Sophie, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear, but I tried to add a little wink to the angry smilie. That normally means it's all a joke. Like in this case for example. I'm sure they didn't not know on purpose.

I've got one trick, which is possibly very obvious to everybody around here....

As early in a case as possible, I start asking everybody if they suspect a certain chosen individual. Then I keep on asking all the others about that same suspect. If no WE comes out, then I may come to the conclusion that the person I was investigating isn't the guilty one. If a WE pops up, then you're either lucky or -sometimes- in a dilemma.

You may have the objection that somone will clam up most often. Nevertheless, in most cases, it will be quite unlikely that this person you had in focus may have two WE against him/her.

I find this method very useful at higher degrees of difficulty, where we need to reduce the amount of suspects.

That's it.

I think the more suspects, the more likely that you get a false accusation :-).

If for some reason you don't want your suspects killed off you can leave a tab open with you discussing the case with your suspect.

As long as you use the tab to get back to the suspect, they won't be dead. Once you click on the link to their name though there's no turning back if they'd died. Once the suspect is all clammed up, you can be done with them. Muah ha ha...

I find it very useful if you find out one of them was a witness, and since I win only 1/3 of my cases, I need all the help I can get.

"Favor formula:

4 successuflly solved cases (including the previous favor) = next favor "

That is incorrect. It is really not four successfully solved cases that triggers it, but three, since a newly created detective who solves three cases gets the chance to do a favour.
