I have created a VH clue helper in PHP. It will show you who your co-conspirator is from the clues you give. If you don't have all the clues, it will give a list of all possible co-conspirators. It has been tested using the clues found on the DPI agency website, so if it is wrong, so are they ;)

You can find it at

If you do find any wrong clues, please PM me the details.

Hmmm…I have to admit that I missed the ‘NOT THE X’ clue functioning. So, by seeing this I have to agree with you, SS: that function of the helper does indeed cut to the chase and solve the hunt.

Considering this, I think Adam should’ve put it in as a possible clue as it is a real one, but should’ve limited the function to just removing that townie from the list of possible conspirators. This would bring the helper back to its ‘helper’ status…well, if there’s not also other inside information contained.

So, SS, now I understand what you mean and I realize I’d feel the same way if I were in your shoes. I also agree that getting the solution of a hunt like that, kinda’ takes all the fun out of it (being still a newbie, I ain’t gonna touch the subject of what should and should not be handed to new players…hehehe).

Adam, please don’t take any of what I said as criticism or anything of the kind and…not even as an advice. Basically the issue about the helper is that it is…too smart :)

^ What he said.

I'm glad I didn't use it on my VH now. I had the pleasure of resizing my little notepad and moving it around the screen to cut the map and downsizing my list each time I got a new clue. I feel like I solved my own VH :) I did research and see a list of the clues as stated earlier but they are available on countless sites and I don't feel like it was a cheat to look and see what I was waiting on. I still worked the cases and said "Yipee" when I got that final clue that I was waiting on. And as I don't understand the reasoning behind the clue that SS gave, my mind won't let me just take it as a given that if I get that clue I can solve.

Just a note on what Adam said about people saying "It's incomplete" etc. You are the author/creator and are allowed to include or exclude whatever you choose. My answer to that would have been. "If you don't like it, make your own."
