Mattie's Apartment

Go inside and through to the sitting room to find Mattie. After your conversation, look around the room at all the photographs, magazines and letters. You will also find a remote control in a small box/basket near the window. Make sure you find the 2 love letters hidden in Mattie's desk. Leave this room and find the phone near the entrance. There is a note here to tell you to call Ned, so use the phone to do this, then leave.

WWB Studios

Look at the magazines on the small table and you will see that letters have been cut out of them. Talk to the security guard and you will get your pass.

Corridors

In the next area, the vacuum-locked studio is currently "On Air" so you cannot get in yet. Turn left and you will overhear Bill Pappas at the end of the corridor. Keep going until you find Mattie's room - knock on the door then go inside. Talk to Mattie, then after she leaves you need to search her room. The important items to see are red lipstick in a makeup drawer, a paperweight in a makeup box, and a torn letter that you need to recreate by rotating and switching pieces. The script that Mattie was reading has four pages, with colored marks on them: yellow, red, orange and blue. Also read the newspapers and letters that you find.

Leave Mattie's room and return to the vacuum-locked area. Use your visitor pass to get inside.

Sound Stage

After the accident, look carefully around the set. Make sure you look at the clamp beneath the coffee table to realise the light was set up to fall. Look at the writing on the teleprompter. You should also note that the clock has a hand missing, and it appears there is a trapdoor beneath the carpet behind the couch. At the top of some spiral stairs the door to the control room is locked and requires a combination to get inside. The wheel controlling the ladder in another part of the area is stuck and cannot be turned, and there is a file cabinet that requires a key. Make sure you pick up the screwdriver from the workbench, then leave through the vacuum lock (use the override).

Corridors

Visit Mattie in her room, but she wants to leave. Go next door to visit Rick, and talk to him until he leaves too. Look around Rick's room, reading all the death threats, and look at the broken watch, chocolates and roses. Take the 3D glasses from his makeup drawer. Now leave Rick's room and go all the way past the sound stage to the other corridor. Find the room with the name Lillian Weiss on the door, and knock. She will take away your visitor's pass - you may as well leave the studio now.

Mattie's Apartment

Go inside and talk to Mattie about your lost pass. She will suggest meeting with her agent in the morning, and give you his address. Go upstairs and select to come down again in the day. Once morning arrives, leave the apartment.

Dwayne Powers

Press the buzzer for Suite 101 twice, and the door will be unlocked. Head inside, down the stairs and knock on door 101. Inside, Dwayne will agree to hire you for a role in LOOL. Leave his suite and return to the studio.

WWB Studios

Go to the security guard and sign for your new employee pass. Go through to the corridors again.

Corridors

Visit Lillian in her office again, and tell her about the clamp you found on the set. Now turn left and go to the Prop Room. Knock on the door here and prepare to answer some riddles to be allowed inside:

  • Soft as a petal that falls from a tree, the more I dry, the wetter I'll be: towel
  • When you look at my face, it's easy to see, when you're looking at you, you're looking at me: mirror
  • I run all day and never walk. I tell you something but I do not talk: clock
  • Give it air and it will live. Give it water and it will die. What is it: fire
  • What has a tail and a head but no body: coin
  • What has teeth but can't eat: comb
  • The more you make, the more you leave behind: footprints
  • What is full of holes but holds water: sponge
  • What has four fingers and a thumb but is not alive: glove

Prop Room

Now that you have access to this room, there is a lot you can do here. Look at everything you can, but I will outline the most important things to find. Look in the large wooden chest, and you will discover a Towers of Hanoi puzzle. Solve this and pick up the clock hand hidden inside. Behind the chest, look at the large map, and lift up the corner to find some wire cutters to take. Make sure you also take a door knob from the box full of them, and the oil can from the shelving. Look next at the desk, and if you look at the typewriter you will see that it misprints the letter Y, like in the threats sent to Rick. Open the logbook, and look at the list of missing items, then look at the top-right corner and turn the page back to see "Millie WBB1958" scratched into the leather cover.

Corridors

Visit Mattie in her room, then leave using the "talent exit" at the end of this corridor.

Mattie's Apartment

In the entrance hall, look at the chair to see a package has arrived for you. Open it and read the note, then take the video tape. Go through to the sitting room and turn on the television with the remote, then put the tape in the video recorder to watch it.

WWB Studios

Talk to the security guard to be let through.

Corridors

Go straight to Rick's room and knock, then go inside. Look at the message on the mirror, then at the tape recorder on his makeup desk. Use the screwdriver 4 times to unscrew the top, then quickly cut the 4 wires in the order from Mattie's manuscript: yellow, red, orange and blue.

Mattie's Apartment

You will automatically arrive here and be talking on the phone to Ned, then to Mr Pappas from the studio. There is a new piece of paper on the desk to the left of the phone - this shows the code for the talent entrance at the studio (3689). Also look at the notepad to the right of the phone to see that George called. Phone her back now and talk to her about the case. Now head to the studio.

WWB Studios

The main entrance is locked, so go around to the left of the building. Look at the keypad and enter 3689 to get inside. Go straight to Lillian's office and use your security pass on the doorknob to break in, or you may be caught by security guards.

Lillian's Office

Search carefully around the office, and you will find all sorts of incriminating evidence. Look in the book called Anger Control and you will find a floppy disk. Put this into the computer, then login to the computer (Millie, WBB1958). Look at the contents of the floppy disk, use the printer function, and check out the code for the Control Room door: ACTOR. Leave the computer and look at the printout from the printer. Next, look at the pad near the purple mug. Use the pencil on the pad to reveal an imprinted message. Make sure you see the castor oil and rubber cement in the drawers. Now, look at the clipboard beneath the TV. Look at the red piece of paper and use your 3D glasses to view it properly. This gives you the correct symbols to match with ACTOR to enter the Control Room.

You can now leave the office and head into the studio (using your pass).

Sound Stage

Go on to the set and look at the clock face again. Put your hand on the number 11, and you will receive a key. Turn around and climb the spiral staircase to the Control Room, and enter the code you have worked out to represent ACTOR using that red sheet (if we number the buttons 1-12 from top left to bottom right, the code is 7-2-11-5-4). Look at the power box and unlock it with the key from the clock. Flip the big power switch to the on position. Now pick up the top black video cassette from the shelving. Look over at the audio mixing equipment on the far side of the desk. Insert your audio tape, and adjust the channels (put the volume up for channel 1, and down for the others, and set the frequency to mid-range to hear the voice).

Leave the Control Room, and head over towards the lounge. Go behind it to the corrugated iron doors and unlock them with the key. Adjust the positions of the levers to match the diagram on the wall, then press the yellow button. Head back to the set, and to the trapdoor behind the couch. Stand on it and pull the lever to go down. Head along the tunnel to find another lift - stand on this and pull the lever to head up into the locked part of the prop room.

Prop Room

Look at the shirt, and look in the pocket to see the card belongs to Owen W Spayder, ID #318-67-2001. Leave this area the way you came in.

Sound Stage

Go back towards the couch and look at the wheel on the wall (it is still stuck). Use the oil from the prop room to loosen it, then climb up the ladder. Walk along the catwalk and look at the torn piece of shirt - this matches the shirt in the prop room and makes Owen Spayder the prime suspect. Climb back down and leave the sound stage.

Corridors

Go back to Lillian's office and use the computer again. Click on the filing cabinet icon and enter ID 318672001 in both boxes. You will realise that Owen was on the set for all of Rick's accidents. Now you can leave the studio.

Mattie's Apartment

Go up to bed, and come down in the daytime. Watch your new video on the TV to see it contains security footage of the suspect. Head in to the studio.

WWB Studios

Talk to the security guard to be allowed through.

Corridors

Talk to Lillian, Millie, Mattie and Rick about Owen Spayder and everything else available. Leave the studio, then go home and come out at night time.

Dwayne Powers

Try ringing suite 101's buzzer, but Dwayne doesn't answer. Ring suite 306 and Hess Grumbly will let you inside. Go down to suite 101 and use your pass to open the door. Again, you need to search this room thoroughly. Look in the wallet in the coat, to see the code 4377-663?. Find the briefcase on the desk, and unlock it with this code (just try every number for the last one). Pick up the keys, and look at the cheque from Mattie. Also find the spirit gum and doorknob in the desk drawers.

Mattie's Apartment

When you get inside, you should hear ticking and the phone ringing. Answer the phone and Lillian will ask you to meet her in the studio. Now open the package on the chair to see it is a warning note and an alarm clock (no bomb).

WWB Studios

Go through the talent entrance and straight to the sound stage.

Sound Stage

Talk to Lillian and look at her note, then accuse Dwayne. After his little speech, quickly head over to the fire alarm and activate it. Step back and look at the override panel. Press the button, and a memory game will appear. Solve this in the limited time available and the guard will arrive to save you.
