Thanks for the reply! So the first three games were kind of like Myst but using real-time 3D backgrounds instead of pre-rendered ones. Same goes for the 4th game I guess. It's like those old Lucas Arts adventure games (The Dig, Sam & Max, etc).
I was always horrible at those games, I could never find the right piece of equipment or whatever, and never knew what to do when I actually found them.
It sounds like finding 45 different pieces of information to solve a particular crime/puzzle would be a lot of work. Hopefully when you find it, you send in that information to the FAQ writers to help out other people, or maybe even write your own since you seem to be better than them!
