60 Hours Earlier

Search the hamper and then the pants to get your cell phone, and examine it in your inventory to see the battery is dead. Head right and try to open the drawers, but they are locked. Pick up the papers from the floor and examine the masking tape. Pick up the key from on the microwave and use it on the drawers, then open them to get a phone battery. Use this with your cell phone, then use the phone. Use the phone's address book, then check the caller ID. Call Dr Morales to store his call in LTM. When Morales asks for the results of the equation, drag your notes to the conversation.

There are now 4 different sections that you can complete in any order.

6:27 - The Nightmare

Anna

Click on the unlocked door to lock it. Pick up Senor bear from the floor, then click on the bear's key in LTM. In your inventory, look at Senor bear, and you will see a numbered tag. Back out and examine the chest, opening it with the code from the bear (591). Go to your LTM to see Uncle Javi's gift. Now hide under the bed and click on the vent cover. Examine the 365 pesos in your inventory, then use the single peso on the vent cover to open it ("Gotta Hide" achievement).

Anna

If you want to get all achievements, load a saved game and replay this scenario very quickly without locking the door. Examine the chest, opening it with code 591, then quickly hide under the bed. Go to your LTM to see Uncle Javi's gift. Examine the 365 pesos in your inventory, and immediately use the single peso on the vent cover ("Quick Escape" insane achievement).

6:55 - The Metro

Ed

After Anna boards the subway, pick up the coin she drops. Talk to Anna ("That Went Well" achievement). Keep talking to her about everything you can ("That Guy" achievement), then give her the coin and talk to her again. After she leaves and there is a power surge, take the loose bar to the right of the doors. Try to open the doors by hand, then use your pipe on the doors and leave.

7:05 - The Stakeout

Bennett

Go left and pick up a brick from just left of the trash pile. Continue left and examine the mirror on the smashed car, then use your brick on it and pick it up. In your inventory, combine the brick and mirror to get a shard of glass. Examine the newspaper vendor machine to the left. Go to your inventory and examine your wallet, then use your credit card on the newspaper vendor. Sit down on the bench to the left and combine your shard of glass and newspaper, then use this combination ("Mirror Master" achievement).

7:30 - The Mainframe

Ray

Examine the smartphone in your inventory and read the emails and then the memos. Right click on the clock near the ceiling to see the time, then drag the clock into your STM. Drag the mainframe on to the secretary to talk to her about it, then talk to her some more, including about the clock in your STM - she will now leave you alone.

Use the secetary's computer; the login will already be entered on the screen, so use your password cracker in the USB port, then click the login button (all passwords are stored in your smartphone for future reference under the memo "Antevorta"). Read the email called "What's my user name?" and take note of the username of her boss. Now read the "Approved Visitor List for Sunday" to see her boss's name is on the list. Now go to drafts and read the email there carefully before clicking Send ("Just Because" achievement).

Logout. Now enter the username as the username of the secretary's boss, and use your password cracker again. Login and the doctor's name will be shown at the top of the screen. Read any of the emails here if you want, then back out of the computer.

Examine the trash can and take the empty pop can, then open the drawer beneath the terminal on the wall to get some cotton swabs. Now use the terminal. Enter the username as the first 3 letters of the doctor's first name and the first 3 letters of the doctor's last name (for example Alexei Jones would be ALEJON). Enter anything for the password, then type /HELP, followed by /PASSRESET and then the username again. Back out and use the secretary's computer again. Log in as the doctor, then read the new email to see the new password (this will also be random).

Use the terminal again and enter the correct username and password, then you will be prompted for a DNA sample. In your inventory, use the cotton swabs on the empty pop can, then insert the swab into the slot on the right to complete the login process. Type /HELP again, then /SEARCH followed by 3. Use the can swab on the slot again to see the doctor's name, FTTN and DNA sequence. Type /SEARCH followed by 3 again. In your inventory, combine the cotton swabs with your smartphone, then insert the new swab into the slot. Type /SEARCH again, followed by 1 and then ABATRA. Note the reference number provided (once again, this is random).

Back out of the terminal and look at each of the drawers of the filing cabinet on the left to find the correct drawer matching the reference number, then open the draw and type in the reference number ("Get the Scoop" achievement).

Juno Laboratory

Ed

Talk to the janitor and don't interrupt him ("Good Listener" achievement) to get Saul's story in your LTM. Approach the building and click on the entrance, then on the concrete slab. Click on the broken window, then drag it to your STM. Go back to Saul and drag the window from your STM on to him, then you will meet up with Bennet. Talk to him and get him to follow you ("Duo" achievement), then return to the building entrance. Drag the concrete slab on to Bennet, then click on it again and the two of you will topple it over. Now drag the broken window on to Bennet and you will get a boost inside.

Try to turn the valve, but you need a wrench, so drag the valve into your STM. Try to open the maintenance door on the left, then also drag it to your STM. Click on the sketch to the left of this door to reveal a No Smoking sign ("No Smoking" achievement). Return outside and go over to Saul. Drag the valve and then the maintenance door from your STM on to him, and you will get Saul's keys. Finally, use Saul's story from your LTM on him to get a monkey wrench. Go to the building entrance and drag the broken window on to Bennet to get inside once more.

Try to use the monkey wrench on the valve (either direction) but you aren't strong enough. Use Saul's keys on the maintenance door and take the step ladder. Talk to Bennet and get him to follow you, then climb through the broken window. Take the duct tape and screwdriver from the maintenance closet, then give Bennet your monkey wrench. Use the screwdriver on the ventilation access, then go inside and crawl right over to the leaking pipe.

Bennet

Use the monkey wrench on the valve, turning it to the right.

Ed

Click on the rusty pipe to remove it, then use the pipe from your inventory on the missing pipe and use your duct tape to secure it in place.

Bennet

Use the monkey wrench on the valve, turning it to the left ("Teamwork" achievement).

Ed

Use your screwdriver on the fuse box to the right, then use the fuse box to turn off the power to the main hallway. Go back outside and give the keys back to Saul, then enter the building through the broken window again. Click on the panel near the door on the right, then open the panel cover and use your screwdriver on one of the screws.

Turn the power switch off, then remove the burned wire. Right-click on the primary pin, one of the other pins, and the indicator lights at the top to understand how the panel works. After using trial and error to work out the effect of each pin, connect them up in this order using the burned wire:

1
2
3
4
5

Wrap the wire around these terminals, then turn the power switch on and the door should open ("Wired" achievement).

Go through the open door, then enter Dr Morales' lab. Click on the keypad on the side of the simulator, and you will see that 3 of the numbers have been used a lot. Back out and look for a book trapped beneath a metal beam. Drag the metal beam on to Bennet to get him to lift it, then take the book. Examine the book in your inventory and take the loose paper hanging out. Examine the loose paper to see sketches of the simulator and a Pi symbol. Click on the keypad again and enter the first 4 numbers of Pi (3141). The door will open and Dr Morales will fall out ("Saviour" achievement).

Anna

After Ed gives you the journal, look at the hospital ID badge in your inventory to see your DOB is April 22. Enter the code on the journal as 422, then open the clasp ("Angel" achievement).

Ed

Answer Bennet's questions, and you will see Ray on his way to the elevator.

Vent Maze

Anna

Crawl through the maze (which is different on each game). Find a blue glowing area to get Hansel and Gretel in your LTM, then keep searching for a grate to fall through to the second level. Now click on Hansel and Gretel in your LTM, then click on 364 pesos in your inventory. You can click on them again to leave pesos in the maze to help your navigation. Find another blue glowing area to get Where's Mama in your LTM, then keep searching until you find another grate and fall through to the third level.

Keep using the pesos to navigate your way through the maze, and find another blue glowing area to get Papa in your LTM. Keep searching to find the exit grate - if you found all 3 memories ("Dream Master" achievement) then wake up, otherwise choose to continue dreaming.

Ask all available questions, then when Ray appears tell him he looks familiar and use Ed & Anna at the Hospital from your LTM on him.

Anna

Look at The Cypher in your LTM, then look at Morales' Journal in your inventory. Decipher the journal with a substitution cypher, starting with letters you know, and then gradually filling in the blanks (the start of the text is "Dear Anna, I'm sending you this journal for safe keeping, and the help you make the decision that I may need to ask of you - a decision that I, myself, was unable to make"). Find and substitute the remaining few letters (Q, V, X and Z). Read as much of the journal as you like, and if you have translated it all correctly, when you back out Anna will comment that she has the message ("Decoder-Ring" super achievement).

Drag Angelo's grave from your LTM on to Ed and go with him to the cemetery - after viewing the headstones you will automatically return to the baseball fields.

Anna

If you want to get all achievements, load a saved game and open all four sides of the safe without using the ultra-sonograph at all ("Safe Seer" insane achievement). You will, however, not get 3 points for using the ultra-sonograph this way, so cannot get a full score.
