=============================================================
1.2, 3/29/99 - Info about how the next fear weapons work, get 
the goddamn katana description and the hyper blaster desc.  I've 
heard rumors of being able to use the engine in the gas station 
on another vehicle and other crazy stuff in addition to the 
"ultra hyper blaster" thing listed at the end of my 1.1 update 
description.  Can anyone shed some light on these rumors, fake 
or otherwise?  5.04 modified again, added more stuff to 3.32.  I 
need some more info on exactly how the weapon reward system for 
Next Fear mode works... I think I have it figured, but I'm not 
completely sure.  Apparently the yellow powerup for the hyper 
blaster does indeed exist (I have received other emails about 
it), but everyone has different stats to get it...  Added 3 
health drinks I missed in the hospital.

Future Updates:
Still gotta find a few more things I missed.  Other explanations 
need to be added, and I've got to organize some more areas...  
At least the to-do list is getting pretty small here.

1.1, 3/18/99 - Hospital maps have been added, as well as lots 
of miscellaneous info in section 5.04 (think Extra Options).  
Section 5.06 (Game Ending Descriptions) has also been added at 
the request of readers.  Added a new strategy to defeat the 
Winged Demon.  Waterworks (3.27) has been updated with a better 
way to break the lock.  Corrected bullet location in 4.23 
(office).  Modified 3.22 a bit as well.  1.02 and 1.03 have been 
modified with some small changes.  Added 5.05, Game Rating 
Explanation, as well (I need more info on gold ratings in the 
game result screen!).  I'm still missing a few items in the 
walkthrough.  If anybody knows where they are and can send 
detailed directions on how to get them, I will be forever in 
your debt.  (6.02) Credits/Thanks have also been slightly modified, 
along with (2.04) Difficulty Level information.  Channeling 
stone has been added to the items (keys) area.  Quick Hints 
(2.09) also got a huge update.  I got an interesting email 
from ([email protected]) after 1.0 was released too...

"Hey whats up? Completed SH and got ten star rating. With that 
my Hyper Blaster was powered up, it says so in the Next Fear 
File. It now has a yellow laser thats 4 times more powerful. 
Let me know what ya think."

Can anybody else tell me they've been able to get this?


1.0, 3/07/99 - OK, I decided to release this version because 
Tetsuo hasn't finished the hospital maps yet, and many people 
have wanted an update.  So here is 1.0!  Tons more stuff still 
planned, just check below for the additions and fixes in this 
version, and a little bit lower for planned stuff in the next.

Added info on safe in Indian Runner, fixed missing data in 
sewer (3.26) section, added convenience store/car info, 
reorganized item lists, difficulty level info (2.04) added, 
other misc. spelling and grammar fixes.  Added ending info and 
information about the Channeling stone's use, redid controls 
section, added more and fixed character information, redid 
2.01 (Intro to SH), added Next Fear Mode info, all Next Fear 
weapons (katana still needs full info).  Added valve twisting 
info (that I originally forgot) into the Alternate Boiler room 
information.  Also did the info about gas station, and how to 
get the chainsaw and rock drill.  5.04 (Miscellaneous) added with 
'other' notes.  Added so many other things, I lost count...  
Suffice it to say, this is a huge update.

_However_, I still have alot of work to do, mostly involving the 
fact that I don't have item descriptions for the Hyper Blaster or 
Katana, and I don't have all 204 possible items listed in the 
walkthrough.  Look for those in subsequent updates, along with the 
usual round of fixes.  Oh yeah, and watch out for the hospital maps 
within a week or so.  (Please send me info on any item i missed, 
no matter how small)
 
0.5b-.9b, Decided update was way too big to be just one little number, 
skipped .5b all the way to 1.0.

0.4b, 2/26/99 - Tons of new walkthrough, lots of new maps, new 
character descriptions, countless corrections, a new strategy 
for beating Cybil, quick walkthrough fixes and updates, and 
puzzle additions.  Check the end of the walkthrough for a 
complete list (and trust me, its huge) of what is expected in 
the next version of the FAQ.  Remember to send us your info and 
suggestions!

0.3b, 2/15/99 - Added a bunch of walkthrough and the 'quick 
walkthrough' for those of you who don't need tons of information.  
Maps area added, and puzzles area added too.

0.2b, Developer/Private Release only

0.1b, 2/2/99 - First version of the walkthrough. Basically, in this
version of the walkthrough, we want to just have a guide to get
you through the game. Once that's completed, later on (Like 
when we actully have a manual for the game), we'll go back and
list all the weapons, items, monsters, etc.

=============================================================
o 2.01 Introduction to Silent Hill (From the manual)
=============================================================
The resort town of Silent Hill slips into quiet desolation, 
now that the peak of development and growth has passed by.  
The memories of a tragic fire 7 years ago still haunt the 
townsfolk, and with the tourist season long past, there is 
hardly a shadow stirring.

Harry Mason prefers to take late vacations with his daughter
Cheryl.  This year they've made plans to visit Silent Hill.  
Due to car trouble, they reach the outskirts of the town 
late at night.  Cheryl is sleeping in the back seat as a 
motorcycle cop roars past his truck.

Moments later Harry spots the motorcycle dumped on the shoulder.  
There is no one to be seen.  It paints an ominous picture.  
Suddenly, a shadow appears in front of the car.  Harry turns 
the wheel in panic.  The car slides off the edge of the 
road and into a gully.

Harry eventually regains consciousness.  Cheryl is nowhere 
to be seen.  Snow is falling out of season.  Where has 
Cheryl disappeared to?

Harry walks toward a town he sees in the distance.

=============================================================
Easy - Few monsters, little damage.  Can't stay on this setting 
for Next Fear mode.  Four of the five endings available.  A box 
of bullets gives you 30 bullets in this mode.

Normal - Normal monsters, normal damage.  You can get the Next 
Fear weapons in this mode.  All five endings available (four on 
easy, then UFO ending on Next Fear Normal).  A box of bullets 
gives you 20 bullets in this mode.

Hard - Large quantities of monsters, huge amounts of damage.  
Experienced players should play this mode, and you can get all 
the bonus weapons and extra endings in this mode.  (It has been

easy or normal.)  A box of bullets gives you 15 bullets in this

o 2.08 Puzzles
=============================================================
In the school reception area:
'10:00 "Alchemy laboratory" Gold in an old man's palm.  The future 
hidden in his fist.  Exchange for sage's water.'  

'12:00 "A place with songs and sound" A silver guidepost is untapped 
in lost tongues.  Awakening at the ordained order.'

'5:00 "Darkness that brings the choking heat" Flames render the 
silence, awakening the hungry beast.  Open time's door to beckon prey.'

In the school music room:
"A Tale of Birds Without a Voice"

First flew the greedy Pelican,
Eager for the reward
White wings flailing.

Then came the silent Dove
Flying beyond the Pelican,
As far as he could.

A raven flies in,
Flying higer than the Dove,
Just to show he can.

A swan glides in,
To find a peaceful spot,
Next to another bird.

Finally out comes a crow
Coming quickly to a stop
Yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way,
Who will be the key,
Who will lead to
The silver reward.

In the school library:
"Hearing this, the hunter armed with bow and arrow said, "I will kill 
the lizard."  But upon meeting his opponent, he held back, taunting, 
"Who's afraid of a reptile?"  At this, the furious lizard hissed, "I'll 
swallow you up in a single bite!"  Then the huge creature attacked, jaws 
open wide.  This was what the man wanted.  Calmly drawing his bow, he shot 
into the lizard's gaping mouth.  Effortlessly, the arrow flew, piercing 
the defenseless maw, and the lizard fell down dead."

In the Nurse Center (2nd floor hospital):
Clouds flowing over a hill.
Sky on a sunny day.
Tangerines that are bitter.
Lucky four-leaf-clover.
Violets in the garden.
Dandelions along a path.
Unavoidable sleeping time.
Liquid flowing from a slashed wrist.

In the Hall of Ophiel:
Names engraved on a lithograph.
The Grim Reaper's List.

Yes, the headcount is set
Young and old lined up
In order of age.

Then, the pathway opens
Awaiting them, the frenzied
Uproar, the feast of death!

Also in the Hall of Ophiel:
The Grim Reaper's List reads:
35 Lydia Findly
60 Trevor F. White
18 Albert Lords
45 Roberta T. Morgan
38 Edward C. Briggs

=============================================================
o 2.09 Quick Hints
=============================================================
If you die you will get a general hint on how to play the game, 
but there are also several listed in the Silent Hill manual that 
I have typed out below...  (If anyone types up some more hints 
from within the game, please send them to us!)

Aiming in the Dark
When the light is off, accuracy with the gun goes way down.  
When Harry has the light turned off, carefully approach the 
enemy and shoot from close range to ensure a hit.

Complete Kills
When Harry has beaten an enemy, make sure he has completely 
taken it out or it may rise again to cause trouble.  You will 
know it is dead when the radio falls silent.

Confrontations
It is not always best to confront an enemy in front of Harry.  
Rather than wasting bullets, sometimes it is better to run.

Darkness
If you find the night scenes too dark, try increasing the 
brightness level in the options menu.

Flying Monsters
It is difficult to pinpoint flying enemies.  However, if Harry 
keeps a wall to his back, he can cut down on blind-side attacks.

Gun Aiming
When using guns, hitting the weapon button will aim at the nearest 
enemy in front of Harry.  Hitting left or right on the directional 
button will change the aim on to the next enemy.
Gun
Since the character is a normal person with no special training 
in shooting a gun, his skill with it is marginal.  Even in 
daylight or with the light on, his accuracy with the weapon is 
questionable and is certainly dependent on the distance.  Try 
to let the enemies close in a bit to get off a sure hit.

Light and Sound
The creatures have eyes and ears and use these to locate the 
character.  So if they are not alerted to the character's 
presence, they will not start attacking.  NOTE: If the light 
is turned off and the character is careful not to go right in 
front of the creatures, he can avoid needless confrontations.  
However, with the light off, the character cannot search or 
look at the map.  Also his accuracy with projectile weapons 
will go way down.  Therefore, it is not possible to complete 
the adventure with the light off.

Multiple Enemies
Harry will be quickly overwhelmed if surrounded by several 
enemies.  When there are many enemies around keep your distance 
or try turning off the light to avoid them.  Try to keep 
confrontations to one-on-one situations.

Quick Turn
Pushing the L1 and R1 buttons simulataneously will make Harry 
quickly reverse his direction.  This is useful for getting out 
of situations in which Harry is in danger quickly.

Radio
The radio will alert the player to a creature's presence with 
white noise.  This white noise will change slightly depending 
on the number and distance of the creatures, so listen carefully.  
The creatures cannot hear this noise, so there is no reason to 
turn the radio off.

Search View
While pressing the L2 button, the camera angle changes to the 
Search View mode.  This mode changes the focus of the camera from 
having the character centered on screen, to focus on where the 
character is looking.  In this view mode, the player can look 
further forward and around corners.  Utilize the Search View to 
your advantage.  (There are some areas where the Search View 
cannot be used).

Wielding Weapons
While using a weapon that you swing, the motion will change 
dependent upon how the action button is pressed.  Tapping it 
quickly will make the weapon swing around, while holding it 
down will cause it to swing down or thrust, dependent on the 
weapon.

=============================================================
o 3.00 Walkthrough
=============================================================
Quick Intro: Ok people, this is what you've been waiting for.
the walkthrough for the whole game. We've split it up into 
scenes. each scene gets a number, 3.xx (For example, The Cafe
is 3.02). Here goes nothing...  This version of the walkthrough 
is based on a game done on 'Easy', with additions on Next Fear 
mode 'Normal' and some other 'Hard' data.

=============================================================
o 3.01 Walkthrough - First Scene
=============================================================
The game begins as you wake up in a car that has crashed, you 
get out and then you see a non-FMV scene where Harry speaks 
(Text only, no actual speech in this part) and talks about how 
he's looking for Cheryl as he runs around.  You see someone who 
looks like Cheryl and she runs off into the distance, run after 
her and you will go into an alley.  Run down to the back of the 
alley and go through the gate that says 'beware of dog'.  Then 
run towards the camera and through the narrow alley until you 
reach another gate.  Once you go through it gets darker and you 
will light a flare.  Continue down the alley and you'll see a 
broken wheelchair with a wheel still spinning.  After this go 
to the dead end of the alley and you'll see a scene with a body 
that is horribly mutilated and splayed out on a chain link fence.  
Then baby zombies will jump out of nowhere and kill you (you 
can't fight back since you have no weapon.)

=============================================================
o 3.02 Walkthrough - The Cafe
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Pocket radio
2 health drinks
Kitchen knife
Flashlight
Map of Silent Hill
_____________________________________________________________
You wake up after being killed by the baby zombie monsters and 
there's a scene with Cybil and you.  She gives you a gun and then 
you're free to roam around the cafe.  Over in the upper corner near 
the bar there is a health drink, flashlight, a map of Silent Hill 
and a save point.  Get the items, then go to the other end of the 
bar and pick up the kitchen knife and another health drink.  After 
you get all the items and save get out your gun and go to the door.  
A short scene involving the radio will commence and afterwards you 
will have to kill a flying monster.  Go get the pocket radio (it 
will crackle whenever monsters are nearby), then continue out 
the door.

=============================================================
o 3.03 Walkthrough - Convenience Store/Car
=============================================================
Items in this area:
2 boxes of bullets
4 health drinks
First aid kit
Channeling stone (Next Fear Only)
_____________________________________________________________
When you're out on the street, check your map and run up Bachman
Street towards the convenience store.  On a bench near the 
cafe on the righthand side of the map, there are 2 boxes of 
bullets.  Once you get these, go towards the convenience store.  
On the side of the building (the side facing Bachman Street) 
there will be a door slightly ajar.  Enter it, and you can pick 
up 3 health drinks on the shelves in there, and a first aid kit 
in the upper righthand corner of the room near a save point.  
When you're done with this, continue north on Bachman Street 
(staying to the lefthand side of the road as it appears on the 
map), and you'll run into the car you wrecked.  If you examine 
it, you'll get another health drink.  Once you've done this, go 
to the alley that the game originally instructed you to head 
towards.

Next Fear Update:  The convenience store has the "Channeling 
stone" in it in Next Fear mode (Good+ ending only).  This stone, 
if used in the right places (which are listed in the FAQ at 5.03), 
can unlock another ending in addition to the four standard ones.

=============================================================
o 3.04 Walkthrough - The Alley
=============================================================
Items in this area:
2 boxes of bullets
Steel pipe
Note left by Cheryl
_____________________________________________________________
After you exit the cafe a map will come up and show you where to 
go next.  It points towards the alley where you first were looking 
for Cheryl at the introduction to the game.  Be sure to refer to 
the map often in the game so you don't get lost.  Go up to the 
alley and go straight back to the gate you went through last time.
 ------------------------------- When the screen loads you will
 [!] I didn't kill the monsters  see something dead on the ground
 attacked me before I went       There's nothing to do on this
 through the gate because I      screen so run straight towards
 wanted to conserve bullets.     the camera and continue down the
 ------------------------------- alley until you reach some 
bullets. Take these and look at the papers on the ground.  After 
doing this go back the way you came until you're back on the main 
street.

=============================================================
o 3.05 Walkthrough - On the Way to the School Part 1
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Note from Cheryl
House key
_____________________________________________________________
Run west down Finney Street until you reach the intersection 
to Levin Street.  Then go south down Levin Street until you get 
to Matheson and go west there.  You'll reach a deep chasm in the 
ground where the street should be, and some papers lying near the 
hole.  Look at the one with obvious text on it and you will read 
it and pick it up.  Go up Levin Street on the left side until you 
 ------------------------------- reach the fifth house with a porch.
 [!] Be sure that when you kill  Search the doghouse and take the 
 the dogs around the doghouse    house key inside.  Then go up to 
 you remember to kick them (X)   the door of the house next to the 
 or else they won't die.         doghouse and unlock it and go 
 ------------------------------- inside.

=============================================================
o 3.06 Walkthrough - Inside the House
=============================================================
Items in this area:
First aid kit
2 boxes of bullets
Health drink
Katana (Next Fear Only)
_____________________________________________________________
When you enter the house go get the first aid kit on the table 
near the door, then go down the hallway.   The door on the right 
hand side is locked, so keep going.  There's a save point on the 
table to the left of the room you come into, as well as a pack of 
bullets.  On the dinner table there is another pack of bullets.  
Continue on into the kitchen area itself, and pick up the health 
drink that is on the stove. Go left and then up to get to the back 
door, but before exiting examine the map on the wall to your left. 
You will copy the information on the map on the wall to your own 
map, but if you attempt to exit through the back door, you will 
find that there are three locks.  Thats all there is to do in this 
area, so go back through the front door to Levin Street.

Next Fear Update:  If your stats were sufficient to see the Katana 
on the Game Ending screen, you can get the Katana from the door 
on the side of the hall in the house that was locked the first time 
around.

=============================================================
o 3.07 Walkthrough - The Second Alley/Basketball Court
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Health drink
Key of 'Woodsman'
_____________________________________________________________
Run north up Levin Street, then east on Finney until you reach 
the new downward red slash on the map (Its across from the 
convenience store label on the map).  Go down until you see 
chain link fence and a fence door on your right.  Go through 
the door and you'll be in what looks like a basketball court.  
On the trash can near the hoop, there is a health drink.  Get 
it, then look at the white spot on the ground that is near 
the basket, and what looks like a bloody ripped up corpse.  
The white spot is the Key of 'Woodsman'.  Take it, then go back 
up the alley to Finney Street because there's nothing else to 
do in this area.

=============================================================
o 3.08 Walkthrough - On the Streets of Old Silent Hill
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Key of 'Scarecrow'
2 health drinks
Box of bullets
Key of 'Lion'
First aid kit
_____________________________________________________________
Go east on Finney Street and attempt to go across the bridge.  
You will run into a section where the bridge is gone and there's 
a police car thats trashed near it.  Next to the police car there 
is a box of bullets.  Get those, then look in the car's trunk to 
find the "Key of 'Lion'".  Now go south on Ellroy Street until 
you reach another hole in the ground. Go to the right until you 
reach a building. The camera angle will change and you'll see a 
plank to walk across as well as a mailbox with a white spot in 
it, surrounded by blood.  Examine the white spot to get the "Key 
of 'Scarecrow'".  Then go up the steps and get the health drink 
next to the door of the house.  You now have all three keys to 
open the back door of the house!  Go west on Matheson Street 
until you see an alley (its near the E of the name of the street 
and is between Levin and Bachman).  If you go to the back of 
this alley you can pick up a first aid kit.  Then continue 
on until you reach Levin Street and go south.  The last house 
on the left (in relation to the camera) of this street near the 
L in Silent on the map has a health drink next to its door.  
Once you have these items, go back to the house with the 
doghouse near it, which is now marked by a red dot on your 
map.

=============================================================
o 3.09 Walkthrough - Back in the House
=============================================================
Items in this area:
2 health drinks
_____________________________________________________________
Go through the house directly to the back door and use the keys 
to get into the backyard (There's nothing new in the house).  
As soon as you go outside, there will be a short little scene 
and then you will automatically turn your flashlight on.  Walk 
over to the table and chairs and get the two health drinks sitting 
on the table. Then go out the door in the back of the fence and 
you'll be in an alley.

=============================================================
o 3.10 Walkthrough - On the Way to the School Part 2
=============================================================
Items in this area:
2 boxes of bullets
4 health drinks
_____________________________________________________________
Run north up the alley you come out in until you hit Finney 
Street.  Then go west on Finney and north on Midwich until you 
hit the hole in the road.  There is a health drink and a box 
of bullets here.  Now make your way to Matheson Street and 
go into the alley between Midwich Street and Levin Street.  
 ------------------------------- About halfway down in this 
 [!] The game has now gotten     alley there is a box of bullets
 very dark, so I suggest that    on the righthand side, as well 
 you remember to check your map  as a health drink.  Once you
 often, or else you will get     pick them up, continue south  
 lost.                           until you reach Bloch Street.  
 ------------------------------- Go west from here until you 
hit Midwich, then go south past the school and on the side of 
the road where the school is, there will be a school bus.  Go 
inside and you can save your game and pick up two health drinks 
from a seat.  Now go back up to the school and go in the front 
door.
 
=============================================================
o 3.11 Walkthrough - In the School/Reception Area
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Map of school
Box of bullets
_____________________________________________________________
As soon as you enter, walk toward the righthand side of the 
camera until the view changes and you can see some white benches 
and something on top of them.  Look at the map (The item on the 
benches), then take it.  Go through the doors into the main part 
of the school, then go west until you get to the reception area.  
Go into the reception area, and look on the counter for a note 
written in blood.  The note reads:
'10:00 "Alchemy laboratory" Gold in an old man's palm.  The future 
hidden in his fist.  Exchange for sage's water.'  
On the opposite side of the room there is another book with a 
note written in blood on it.  It reads:
'12:00 "A place with songs and sound" A silver guidepost is 
untapped in lost tongues.  Awakening at the ordained order.'
The last note, on the other side of the room, and also written 
in blood, reads:
'5:00 "Darkness that brings the choking heat" Flames render 
the silence, awakening the hungry beast.  Open time's door 
to beckon prey.'

These are clues to what to do in the school.  If you wish to 
figure this out for yourself, skip the school part of this 
walkthrough.  Otherwise, read on... If you go to the other 
side of the counter (Outside the reception area, but looking 
into it) there is a list of teachers in a book.  Go into the 
door that is in the reception area and look on the coffee table 
to get a box of bullets.  You can also look at the picture on 
the wall, and see some information on it.  After you have done 
all this go back into the hallway.

=============================================================
o 3.12 Walkthrough - Infirmary/Courtyard/Second Hallway
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Health drink
First aid kit
Box of bullets
_____________________________________________________________
Go east across the front hallway until you get to the infirmary 
door, then open it.  Inside there is a first aid kit on one of 
the beds, and a health drink in the cabinet marked with a big red 
cross.  There's also a save point on the desk near the cabinet.  
Exit the infirmary and go into the courtyard through the doors 
that are opposite the original entrance to the school.  There's 
nothing in the courtyard except a short monster with a knife, so 
either dodge or kill him, then go through the doors.  In the 
second hallway there are two monsters.  Either kill (suggested) or 
dodge those, and go through the set of doors opposite the ones 
you just entered through.  On the bench on the lefthand side of 
the camera there is a box of bullets.  You'll also see a translucent 
monster that doesn't seem to hurt you walk around for a bit.  Exit 
this room, then go west to the side door that puts you in another 
hallway.

=============================================================
o 3.13 Walkthrough - Third Hallway/2nd Floor
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Health drink
3 boxes of bullets
Chemical
Gold medallion
First aid kit
_____________________________________________________________
In this hallway all the doors are jammed, so go up the stairs 
immediately and you will be on the 2nd floor of the school.
The door right next to the stairwell is open, and if you go in 
you can run to the other side of the room (On the desk near the 
window and next to the chalkboard) and get a health drink. There 
isn't anything in the next classroom, so go down to the girl's 
bathroom.  In there, after killing two monsters, you can get a 
box of bullets.  Leave then, and go back up near the stairwell, 
and go through the east door into a side hallway.  Go into the 
lab equipment room, and walk towards the righthand side of 
the screen.  On the shelf closest to the camera on the righthand 
side there is a bottle, if you search near there you can pick it 
up.  Go back to the hall, and then enter the chemistry lab.  On 
one of the tables there is what appears to be a man's hand holding 
a chunk of gold.  Use your 'chemical' which is now shown to be 
concentrated hydrochloric acid, and it will burn away the hand and 
leave you with just the gold medallion.  Get the medallion, then 
go into the little area to the left of where you melted the hand.  
There is a box of bullets here.  Pick them up, and then leave 
the chemistry lab.  Go west through the double doors to the next 
hallway, then into the library.  Pick up the first aid kit sitting 
on the table in there, then leave. If you go down to the farthest 
south classroom there is a box of bullets on the table near the 
front left of the room.  Pick them up, then go back down to floor 
one via the stairs.  (Note: You can search the locker room for a 
scene with a cat, but it does nothing).  Make your way to the 
courtyard again, and then place the medallion in the spot to the 
left of the door.  You'll hear a rumbling sound and then the clock 
hands will point to 12:00 (You can see what the clock hands point 
to by trying to go in the clock tower doors).

o 3.14 Walkthrough - Music Room
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Silver medallion (Once you solve the puzzle)
_____________________________________________________________
Now that you've put the gold medallion in it's place on the clock
tower, the piano keys are now accessible (If you tried before placing
the gold medallion you couldn't get to the keys), and you can now 
obtain the silver medallion. Go back up to the second floor and 
make your way to the music room.  Then go to the piano...

The poem on the wall says:

"A Tale of Birds Without a Voice"

First flew the greedy Pelican,
Eager for the reward
White wings flailing.

Then came the silent Dove
Flying beyond the Pelican,
As far as he could.

A raven flies in,
Flying higer than the Dove,
Just to show he can.

A sawn glides in,
To find a peaceful spot,
Next to another bird.

Finally out comes a crow
Coming quickly to a stop
Yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way,
Who will be the key,
Who will lead to
The silver reward.

That gives you hints on which keys to press. Heres the order:

_____________________________________________________________
Place the silver medallion in its side of the clock tower, and 
the clock changes to 5:00. The poem for 5:00 is listed at (3.10) 
if you wish to read it and figure out for yourself what to do 
at this point. Go back through the doors opposite the clocktower. 
Climb the stairs to the 2nd floor. Look at your map. There should 
be two sets of stairs, one in the top left, one in the bottom 
right. Make your way down the ones at the bottom right. Doesn't 
matter which way you go, just get there. Go down those stairs, 
you're at the first floor. Go down them again, you're at the 
Boiler Room.  Don't bother trying to open the Storage Room, 
it's locked. Go into the Boiler Room, and turn on the boiler 
(It's the red switch). Theres nothing else you can do here, so 
leave and make your way up the stairs and back out to the courtyard. 
The doors to the Clocktower are now unlocked and you can go inside.

First aid kit
2 health drinks
Rubber ball
Ampoule
2 boxes of bullets
Picture card
Shotgun
_____________________________________________________________
Go through the clocktower and down and up the ladders until you're 
back in the courtyard.  There will be a short scene and then you 
can move again.  Go to the door opposite the clocktower and into the 
door directly opposite the one you just came from.  There is a first 
aid kit and a health drink on the lefthand side of the room, and a big 
fan in the back.  Exit this room and enter the storage room.  Here you 
can get a rubber ball off the counter.  Leave the room then use the 
door into the 'hall' room on the west side.  Take the other door in 
the room to get into a new hall.  Go into the first classroom and 
search the table in the center of the room to get the picture card.
Go through the rest of the classroom then, and go south through 
the first one, through a door linking the two together, and into 
the second.  Go out the door in the lower left corner of the 
room and run up in the hall (back towards the top of the map) and 
you'll see a health drink on a bench.  Get that, then  through 
the door at the bottom of the map on the left to be in a new hall.  
Go into the infirmary to save, get the health drink off the shelf 
that is behind glass in there, then go to the lobby and search the 
wheelchair to get an ampoule.  Go the reception area and enter the 
door.  There is a box of bullets on the couch in the room, and the 
picture of a grotesque door is now a real door!  Use the picture 
card on this door, then open it, and you're in the final hallway 
 -----------------------------  of the first floor.  Go into the boy's 
 [!] The girl's restroom        restroom and open the stall near the 
 acts as an elevator.  Go       back to see a hanging mutilated body.
 in it and then exit to         Go into the stall with it, and look
 go to the 2nd floor, and       on the floor towards the left of the 
 repeat to go back to the 1st.  camera.  On the floor there is a 
 -----------------------------  bright thing.  Examine it and
you will get the shotgun. Go back out into the hall and go into 
the teacher's room that is the closest to the stairs up.  In there 
you will find a box of bullets sitting on a chair, and a table 
that has several phones on it.  When you try to exit the room 
the phone will ring and a short scene will follow.  Then exit 
the room and go up the stairs to get to the second floor.

o 3.17 Walkthrough - Alternate School?! Floor 2
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Box of bullets
Health drink
Shotgun shells
Library reserve key
_____________________________________________________________
Once you get on this floor, go into the classroom directly below 
the stairs and go across the room to a box of bullets sitting on 
a chair.  Get those, then exit the room and go down the hall 
until you see a health drink on a bench.  Get that, then reenter 
the first classroom and go through the door that links the two 
classrooms on that side of the building together.  On a chair 
near the bottom of the room there's a purple box.  Examine it 
and take the box (shotgun shells). Exit the room and go through 
the double doors at the bottom of the hallway to get into a new 
hallway.  The music room door is jammed, so continue on to the 
locker room.  Once you're there, go over and open the locker 
that's shaking, then try to leave.  You'll see a short scene (All 
I can say is DAMN THAT SCARED ME!!!), and then you can see a 
gold key lying on the ground.  Pick up the library reserve key, 
then go back into the hall. Go back to the stairs and head up 
to the roof from here.

=============================================================
o 3.18 Walkthrough - Roof/Courtyard
=============================================================
Items in this area:
none (Roof)
Classroom key (Courtyard)
_____________________________________________________________
Ah the roof. Creepy isn't it? Theres no bad guys here, so don't 
worry. Walk over to the water tank, and look at the valve. Then
follow the gutter over to the blood, look down the hole near the
blood, and you'll see a key just out of reach. Follow the gutter
down until you reach the first hole. Plug the hole up with your 
rubber ball, then go back over to the water valve, and it will let
you turn the water on. This will make the key fall down the drain.
Leave the roof, and go back down the stairs to the first floor. 
Then go back out into the Courtyard. As you're facing out to the 
Courtyard, the key is to your left behind the corner of the building, 
in the gutter.

Ampoule
_____________________________________________________________
Now that you've gotten the key go up to the Library Reserve room 
and use the key.  Once in there you can get a first aid kit off 
the shelf on one side of the room.  Now go through the door into 
the library.  In the library there is a box of bullets on the 
table and a book open that tells a strange fairy tale that goes:
"Hearing this, the hunter armed with bow and arrow said, "I will 
kill the lizard."  But upon meeting his opponent, he held back, 
taunting, "Who's afraid of a reptile?"  At this, the furious 
lizard hissed, "I'll swallow you up in a single bite!"  Then the 
huge creature attacked, jaws open wide.  This was what the man 
wanted.  Calmly drawing his bow, he shot into the lizard's gaping 
mouth.  Effortlessly, the arrow flew, piercing the defenseless maw, 
and the lizard fell down dead."
Thats all there is in this room now (unless you like hanging 
mutilated bodies), so continue into the hallway you haven't been 
in yet on this floor.  Use the classroom key on the door to the 
first classroom and go through the adjoining door to the next 
classroom.  On a chair in this room there is a health drink.  
Then exit the room and get the health drink off the bench in 
the hall.  After that go down the stairs that are on the lower 
righthand side of the map.  You're now back down in the basement.  
Go in the storage room to get an ampoule and two boxes of shotgun 
shells, then go into the boiler room.

=============================================================
o 3.20 Walkthrough - Alternate Boiler Room/Normal School
=============================================================
Items in this area:
K. Gordon Key
_____________________________________________________________
Upon entering, you'll see two wheels and a blocked door, you 
must get the right combination of turns on the wheels to gain 
access to the boiler room.  The combination that works is...
Left Valve: One turn to the right.
Right Valve: Two turns to the left.

Once you do this, the passage will be clear and you can enter 
the next room.  You enter this area, and a body begins to burn, 
but behind it there is the first real boss of the game!
---------------------Boss : Largemouth-----------------------
Remember the story from the book? (Full text in 3.18 or 2.08 
which is the puzzles area) This gives you the hint on how to beat 
the monster!  Fire shots at the monster (with any weapon) until 
a small puddle of something appears on the floor, then equip your 
shotgun and wait until it opens up its mouth (it WILL be obvious) 
and blast it as much as you can.  
---------------------Boss : Largemouth-----------------------
It will die, and you will see a short FMV scene and then you'll 
be back in the normal boiler room.  On the floor next to the boiler 
with the red switch there is a silver key, pick it up and you'll 
have the K. Gordon Key.  Leave the room and you'll notice you're 
back in the 'normal' school.  Go up the stairs and there'll be a 
short scene, and then you'll be off to the Balkan Church.

=============================================================
o 3.21 Walkthrough - Streets of Old Silent Hill/Balkan Church
=============================================================
Items in this area:
5 boxes of bullets
Flauros
Drawbridge key
Health drink
First aid kit
2 boxes of shotgun shells
Gasoline Tank (Next Fear Only)
Chainsaw (Next Fear Only)
Rock drill (Next Fear Only)
_____________________________________________________________
Once you leave the school, go south on Midwich, and then east 
on Bradbury until you get to the alley that goes north off of 
Bradbury Street.  Go up that, and a little past halfway up the 
length of the alley on the right there will be a door.  Go in 
that and you'll be in a backyard.  Go into the house (you'll 
use the K. Gordon Key), and go into the kitchen and get the box of 
bullets off the stove, then get the box of bullets off the table 
next to the save point in the dining area.  Then save and continue 
on back down to Bradbury Street.  Go into the next alley and about 
halfway up this one there will be another box of bullets on the right.  
Pick those up, then go through the rest of the alley up to Bloch 
Street.  Go directly west to the church, and when you enter it 
you'll see some FMV, and then some game engine FMV (ala MGS) with 
voiceovers.  Once those are over, if you go up to the altar there 
are items there.  The key is the 'drawbridge key' and the other object 
is a 'Flauros' whose function is unknown.  Once you've gotten these 
items, go over to the niche to the left of the altar and get the 
health drink sitting there.  Then go back near the entrance, where 
you'll see a desk with a save point.  Once you save, exit the church 
and go west on Bloch Street and go into the door that is slightly 
ajar on the gas station.  Inside, there's a box of bullets on 
the other side of the car, and a gasoline tank on the shelf if 
you're in Next Fear mode.  Now go south on Ellroy Street on the 
righthand side of the road until you see a truck off to the side.  
Go towards it and you'll see a box of bullets and some shotgun 
shells next to it.  After this go to the bridge you haven't 
been to yet, and make your way towards the Bridge Control Room 
(its on the map).  As you run west down Bloch Street, if you stay 
to the righthand side of the road as you get near the bridge you'll 
see some (broken) stairs.  Go down to where they're broken and you 
can get a first aid kit and some shotgun shells, then go to the 
Bridge Control Room.  Go up to the second floor door, and on 
the chair inside there is a map of central Silent Hill.  Pick it 
up (obviously), then save at the save point on the desk.  Then go 
directly towards the camera and you'll be in a small area (not a new 
room, just an extension of the booth that you couldn't see before).  
This area has a control panel and a health drink to the left of the 
panel.  Pick up the health drink, then use the Drawbridge key on the 
panel and you'll let down the drawbridge.  Now you have access to 
central Silent Hill!

Next Fear Update:  Go to the gas station to pick up the gasoline 
tank.  Now, if you've only beaten the game once, you can only 
choose one of the two weapons.  Either the chainsaw or the rock 
drill.  If you've beaten it twice on the same save already, then 
you can use them both however.  Choose the weapon you want to 
get (use the weapon guide at 2.06 if you want), then continue.

I want the Chainsaw:  Go west on Bloch Street until you reach 
the hole in the road.  On the south side of the road (look at 
it on the map) there's a broken window with the chainsaw 
sitting there.  Use the gasoline on the chainsaw, then pick it 
up.

I want the Rock drill: Go to the bridge control room and go in 
the bottom door.  Use the gasoline on the rock drill at the 
back, then pick it up.

o 3.22 Walkthrough - Central Silent Hill/Normal Hospital
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Box of bullets
First aid kit
Hospital map
Hospital basement map
4 health drinks
Plastic bottle
Basement key
Unknown liquid
_____________________________________________________________
If you run down the righthand side of the drawbridge (the south 
side of the drawbridge on the map) you can find another set of 
 ------------------------------- broken stairs.  At the bottom
 [!] Note the names of the       of these there is a box of bullets. 
 streets of Central SH.  All     Pick them up, then go south on
 famous authors...  Kinda        Crichton Street to get to
 interesting in my opinion...    Alchemilla Hospital (which is circled
 ------------------------------- on your map). Go onto Koontz Street
and there's an entrance to the hospital there.  Once you get inside, 
save at the save point on the reception desk, then continue on 
further into the room and you will hear a gunshot.  Go down the 
hall and enter the first door on your left.  There will be a short 
FMV sequence.  You will meet Dr. Kaufmann, a doctor at the hospital 
who was taking a nap, and when he woke up, everybody was gone and 
monsters were all over the town and in the hospital.  After wishing 
him luck you and him will part ways and then you have control again.  
You will be facing towards the door you came in from, so turn to the 
right and go in the door on that wall.  There's nothing interesting 
in this room, so continue on down to the door at the bottom of this 
room and go through.  You will be behind the registration desk area 
of the hospital's front room, and on a box near the door there is a 
first aid kit.  Examine the board on the wall to get the hospital 
map, then go back to the room where you first met Dr. Kaufmann.  Go 
into the other door that was in this room (run towards the camera) 
then go through the medicine room into the hallway (Remember to 
check your map often! But you don't need me to tell you that anymore, 
do you?).  The store room and office locks are jammed, so go into the 
doctor's office from here.  Inside on the desk next to the side door 
that leads to the conference room there is a map of the hospital 
basement.  Take that, then continue through to the conference room.
On the conference table in the conference room there is a bluish 
green key that is the basement key.  Take it, then make your way 
back to the hall.  If you go into the kitchen there is a health 
drink on the counter and search the plastic bottles in the room 
and you'll be able to pick one up.  Now go into the director's 
office and use the plastic bottle on the liquid that is lying on 
the floor and you'll get some. (This liquid is very important later 
on...)  Once you get that, continue on to the door to the basement 
and go down.  Once you get down to the basement level (you'll 
have to run down a set of stairs) go into the generator room and 
walk toward the large generators in there.  The camera view will 
change and you'll see some stuff on the right hand generator.  
Examine it and press the switch.  Now go to the elevator on 
the basement level.  Once inside, examine the area where the 
level buttons usually are to get a full screen view of them.  
Go back up to floor 1 quickly and examine the vending machine 
to get 3 health drinks, and after this go back in the elevator and   
choose floor 2 and go up there.  Try to open the door and you 
will get the message that its jammed.  Repeat the same process 
on floor 3.  Now go back into the elevator and you'll notice that 
a new floor option, floor 4, has appeared!  Go to floor 4 and 
you'll see a short little scene, and then you're in the Alternate 
Hospital.

=============================================================
o 3.23 Walkthrough - Alternate Hospital?!
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Shotgun shells
3 health drinks
2 boxes of bullets
Blood pack
First aid kit
Ampoule
Plate of "Queen"
Plate of "Hatter"
Plate of "Cat"
Plate of "Turtle"
_____________________________________________________________
Once you step off the elevator onto floor 4 go through the 
only door in the room (this one is not jammed).  Go through the 
entire next hallway to the door at the end (all the side doors 
are jammed) and you'll come out into another hallway.  As you 
walk away from it, the lock will lock behind you so you can't go 
back.  The doors in this hall are locked too, so go down the 
first set of stairs and you'll be on the third floor (you have 
a map for this floor).  There's nothing in Room 301, but if you 
go into Room 302 there is a save point on the bed, a box of 
shotgun shells on the bed near the back, and a TV that is 'old 
but usable'.  Next go into Room 304 (Room 303's lock is jammed) 
and on the righthand side of the room between two beds on a table 
there is a health drink.  On the wall on one side of the room 
there is a light area, examine it and you will be told that a 
'steel plate is screwed to the wall.'  Now go over to the 
storage room and on the shelves in there there's a box of bullets, 
a blood pack, and a first aid kit.  Once you get those, go back 
into the hall and into Room 306 (Room 305 and the Store Room 
have jammed locks).  On the far wall in Room 306 there is a 
'Plate of "Cat"'.  Remember the room with the steel plate screwed 
into the wall? (Room 304)  Well thats not what you use the plate 
on. Ha!  Unlock the door to the room with the elevator (so you 
can use it later), then go into the boys bathroom.  On the back 
shelf in the room there is a 'Plate of "Turtle"'.  Grab that, then 
go back to the stairs and go down to floor 2.  Go into Room 201 
and get the lighter off the bed, then go into Room 204.  In the
back of the room there is a 'Plate of "Hatter"' and a tentacled 
thing blocking your way.  Use the blood pack on it and get the 
Plate of "Hatter", then leave the room.  Go into the Nurse Center 
next, and on the far wall there is a white sheet with writing in 
blood on it.  The writing is a poem that says:
Clouds flowing over a hill.
Sky on a sunny day.
Tangerines that are bitter.
Lucky four-leaf-clover.
Violets in the garden.
Dandelions along a path.
Unavoidable sleeping time.
Liquid flowing from a slashed wrist.
This poem gives you the clues you need to set the four plates 
in the correct placements on the door to make it unlock...
If you try to go through the door in the Nurse Center to the 
new hallway on the 2nd floor you will see that there are 4 
square indentations that you must fill.  You currently only 
have three of these plates, so go back to the stairs and down 
to the first floor.  Go through the door to the kitchen and 
on the back counter there's a health drink.  Now go into the 
Office and on the back desk there's a box of bullets.  If you 
go into the medicine room and try to go through the side door 
into the examination room you will find its locked but there's 
a sound on the other side of the door.  Also, if you go into the 
store room there's nothing there, but when you start to leave 
you'll hear a loud crash (but nothing happens...).  So continue 
on up to the director's office.  In the director's office there 
is a 'Plate of "Queen"' on the desk, and a save point at the back.  
You'll also hear another crash (these things are scaring me!). You 
can go back to the Nurse Center now and put in the four plates. If 
you would like to figure this puzzle out on your own, then look up 
above at the poem and get to work.  Otherwise, here is the placement 
of the plates:

   ------  |  _____  |  ------
  |red   | | |white| | |blue  |
  |here  | | |     | | |here  |
   ------  | |_____| |  ------
------------         -------------
   ______               ______

   ------  |  _____  |  ------
  |yellow| | |pur- | | |green |
  |here  | | |ple  | | |here  |
   ------  | |_____| |  ------
   
Red is in the upper left, yellow in the lower left, blue in the 
upper right, and green in the lower right.  The door will click, 
but before going through be sure to equip the shotgun.

o 3.24 Walkthrough - Alternate Hospital?! Part 2
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Hospital basement storeroom key
Disinfecting alcohol
First aid kit
Box of bullets
2 boxes of shotgun shells
Video tape
Examination room key
Hammer
_____________________________________________________________
Once you come out in the new hallway, kill all the damn zombie 
type nurses and doctors, and then go into the operating 
prep room, then through the side door into the operating room.  
On a table in that room there is a key (basement storeroom), get 
it, then go into the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) room.  On the 
table directly in front of the camera there's a group of bottles 
sitting there.  Examine them and you can take the disinfecting 
alcohol.  There is a first aid kit on a chair in the back of 
Room 206, but other than that the doors are jammed.  Now take the 
elevator down to the basement.  Go into the morgue room and on the 
tables with the cadavers (Dead bodies for you uncultured people, 
hehe) there's a health drink and an ampoule.  Next go into the 
generator room and pick up the hammer thats there.  Then to the 
storeroom.  Once you use the storeroom key and go inside, you'll 
find a box of bullets and a box of shotgun shells on the shelves.  
In one corner of the room you'll see a shelf with some white marks 
on the ground near it if you examine the marks it will say that 
they appear to be from the cabinet being moved.  Go around to 
the other side of the cabinet and push it.  (Get up next to it 
and hit (X))  Now go through the door that is revealed and you'll 
be in another part of the storeroom.  On the floor near the end of 
the room there is a grate with vines growing all over it.  To get 
off the vines and open the grate, first pour the disinfecting 
alcohol on it, then light it on fire with the lighter.  Now go 
through the open grate and you'll be in a place that you have no 
map for.  Go down the hall until you get to a dead end (a door is 
there thats jammed), then backtrack a few steps until you find a 
door (its somewhat camoflauged) on the side.  Open it, then go 
into the door to the right side of the camera.  On a gurney in 
here there is a blackish looking object.  Examine it and you'll 
get the video tape!  Go back out of this room and into the last 
room of the hall on the left.  You'll see a short scene, and 
then take the key (Examination room key) next to the picture of 
Alessa.  Now go waaay back up to Room 302 on the third floor so 
you can watch that video tape you just got.  (Take the elevator if 
you've got any brains).  The video tape is scratchy audio and no 
video, so have fun piecing whatever the hell its about together, 
but once you're done look behind you for some shotgun shells that 
somehow appeared while you were engrossed in that fascinating 
movie (hehe), then go to the examination room door on floor 1 
and use the key you found.  You'll see a long scene, and then 
you'll pass out.  When you wake up you'll be back in the normal 
hospital, and there will be another long scene involving the 
crazy old lady named Dahlia Gillespie.  She'll tell you that 
you need to go to the 'other church' and that the mark of 
'Samael' is what was in the schoolyard in the alternate school.

=============================================================
o 3.25 Walkthrough - Antique Shop
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Antique shop key

_____________________________________________________________
Once the scene is over, go over to the desk where Dahlia left 
the green key and pick it up (antique shop key). Save if you
want, then leave the hospital. Once outside, check your map.
Zoom in (X) to above the Silent Hill Town Center. The orange
square right above it says 'Antique Green Lion'. Go down Koontz
St., then turn on Simmons St. The Antique store's door will be 
open. It leads down some stairs to another door where you use 
the key. Use the save point if you want, then go over to the 
cabinet against the wall. Just like in the hospital, you can 
push this one. Once you do, a hole is revealed and a cinema 
starts where Cybil comes in. She says she saw Cheryl walking 
on Bachman Road toward the lake, but like all the other roads, 
Bachman is caved in, so it was like she was walking on thin air. 
Once the cinema ends, Harry through the hole and into a tunnel. 
You go down the tunnel untill you reach a room. It's some kind 
of altar. Grab the axe off the wall, examine the altar, You can 
try the door if you want (It's locked). As you start to leave 
through the hole, the altar catches fire. Cybil yells after Harry, 
and when she enters the altar, he's gone. He wakes up in the 
hospital with Lisa, she says that was all just a bad dream. She 
then goes on to tell Harry about how the town used to be a cult 
that practiced a strange religion, but when more people arrived 
everyone hushed up about it. After that little experience you 
wake up AGAIN, this time in an alternate altar, with a mark of 
Samael on the ground, and some really dizzing camera angles.

o 3.26 Walkthrough - Alternate Town?!
=============================================================
Items in this area:
2 boxes of rifle shells
First aid kit
_____________________________________________________________
Once you save, exit the antique shop and you'll be back on the 
streets of Central Silent Hill.  Only now everything is metal 
and really weird like the alternate school and hospital.  Walk 
down Simmons Street on the side with the Town Center.  You'll 
find a hole in the fence right next to the town center, so go 
through it and you'll be in there.  Once inside, try to go up 
the escalator and a short scene with a bunch of TVs will ensue.  
Once that is over, go up the escalator, then run towards the 
right side of the camera and walk down that wall until you find 
a door.  Go into that door, and you'll find two boxes of rifle 
shells (woo, new weapon soon) and a first aid kit.  Then go back 
into the hall.  Continue just a little bit down it and you'll 
see something on the ground.  Walk or run towards it and the 
floor will suddenly fall out from under you and you'll be fighting 
a boss that looks alot like a grub or worm of some sort.  Quickly 
pick up the rifle thats laying against a wall before you start to 
fight it.
-----------------------Boss : GrubWorm-----------------------
Just stay standing until it roars, then run away for a few steps, 
turn around, then blast it with your gun (rifle recommended).  
After doing this several times it will curl into a ball.  Stop 
shooting when it does this since you can't hurt it.
-----------------------Boss : GrubWorm-----------------------
It will uncurl after this and break a hole in the wall, if you 
go through it you will be out of the Silent Hill Town Center and 
on the street behind it.  Run down the street until you reach Sagan 
Street, then go west on Sagan and south on Crichton Street and go 
in the gate of Alchemilla Hospital.  (This is the only route, all 
other roads have large holes in them.)  Once inside, go into the 
examination room after saving and you'll have a long scene with 
Lisa, who then tells you to go to the waterworks near her old 
elementary school (the only unblocked way to the lake).  Once you 
leave the school, you'll notice that both ways off the street are 
blocked! So run straight across and up the set of stairs you find.  
You'll come out on the roof and a large moth type monster that 
appears to be an adult form of the GrubWorm you fought earlier.
-------------------Boss : Moth/Adult Grub--------------------
Now would be a good time to equip that rifle.  This boss will 
shoot poison balls at you, and if you get too close it will sting 
you with the stinger on the end of its tail.  So run around alot 
and whenever possible turn around and fire.  This boss is very 
simple so if you're lucky you won't even have to use a health 
drink or first aid kit.
-------------------Boss : Moth/Adult Grub--------------------

=============================================================
o 3.27 Walkthrough - Waterworks/Tunnels
=============================================================
Items in this area:
4 health drinks
5 boxes of bullets
3 boxes of shotgun shells
Rifle shells
Sewer map
Sewer key
First aid kit
Sewer exit key
_____________________________________________________________
Once you've beaten the boss he'll collapse and die and then 
you'll be back in normal (if you can call it that) Silent Hill.  
Go back down to the street and go back into the hospital to 
save quickly.  Then go over to the corner of Koontz and Simmons 
and pick up a health drink that is sitting on a table outside of 
a cafe.  Then go back to Crichton Street and go into the police 
station.  Once inside pick up the two boxes of bullets on the 
counter and some shotgun shells on the bench, then go in the 
left door (the one without a board with pictures on it near it) 
and get another box of bullets and some shotgun shells.  There 
is also a save point in here.  Once you save, go back out of the 
police station and continue west down Sagan Street towards the 
bridge and Old Silent Hill.  If you go to the small pinkish 
rectangle on the map near the bridge you'll find a health drink 
on a barrel outside the building.  Then continue west on the 
bridge to get back to Old Silent Hill.  Once the screen loads, 
you'll see the map showing that you are directly outside of 
Midwich Elementary School (Yay! You don't have to walk all that 
distance!).  Walk towards the gate and examine the lock.  Then 
equip your hammer that you got in the Hospital and hit the lock 
once.  This will break the lock and you can go inside the gate.  
 ------------------------------- Go down into the tunnels and  
 [!] Your radio is useless in    then walk through the tunnels  
 the tunnels so listen for the   until you reach a big room. 
 sounds of your enemies          There's a key and a map on the 
 carefully or you will be hurt   desk. Then turn left here and 
 frequently.                     run down the side until you reach 
 ------------------------------- the third metal passover of the 
water.  Go over this one and continue up until you reach a dead 
end.  At this dead end there is a health drink, a box of bullets, 
and some shotgun shells.  Get these, then go back across the 
metal bridge and continue up to the dead end on the other side.  
There are some rifle shells here, so get those and then go back 
to the big room you first came into.  Go the other direction 
this time and get to the lefthand side of the water (go over 
the first passover you find) and go into the door marked 
'Keep Out'.  Go down the passage until you reach the next 
'Keep Out' door.  On the table in this 'room' there's a save 
point, the sewer map (Yay!), and the Sewer key, which is hidden 
on the shelf on the wall next to the books (tricky.....).  
Get these, then continue through the next 'Keep Out' door.  
Continue to the next door and use the key, then once you step 
through the door, equip your gun (Trust me).  After that, 
follow the map to get to the locked door at the southern end 
of the tunnels.  Use the sewer key on that, and then go up 
the ladder to be in the next area.  Once you get up to the 
next level of the tunnels, go right on the blue platform to 
get a first aid kit, then go south on the map and east into 
the first hole.  Continue through this tunnel until you reach 
a 'room' like place.  Near one wall there is a health drink 
and a box of bullets.  Once you have those, go south down the 
next tunnel, then go west until you reach a dead end.  Search 
the water near the blood here and you'll get the sewer exit key.  
Then 3 of those damn monsters that hang from the ceilings will 
drop down and attack you.  Run away from these and go back east 
on the map until you reach another "Keep Out" door.  Use the 
sewer exit key on it and run up to the ladder.  On the barrel 
next to the ladder there is a save point, so use it and then 
go up back to the surface.

=============================================================
o 3.28 Walkthrough - Resort Area
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Box of bullets
3 boxes of rifle shells
First aid kit
Resort map
Kaufmann key
Receipt
6 health drinks
Safe key
Shotgun shells
Magnet
Motorcycle key
_____________________________________________________________
The Dr. Kaufmann material in this section (if done) causes a 
"Good" ending.  If you don't do it, you can get a "Bad" ending.  
The Cybil section later can affect the + or (no +) rating.  If 
you don't wish to do this, then don't do the motorcycle section 
in this part, and go towards the lighthouse.  Otherwise, read 
on...

Once you're back on the surface, run towards the camera, then 
left and into the 'building'.  There is a box of bullets and 
some rifle shells in here.  Once you get those, go over to the 
corner of the room and get the first aid kit.  Then go out to 
the road and on the righthand side there is an information board 
with a resort map.  Now run down Bachman Street and go into the 
entrance of Annie's Bar.  You'll have a scene with Dr. Kaufmann, 
and then he'll leave.  Go near where the monster was attacking him 
and you'll see a yellowish packet on the ground.  Examine it and 
you'll have the receipt and Kaufman's key (to the Indian Runner 
hotel).  On the right corner of the bar there is a save point and 
on the left corner, two health drinks.  Once you have those go back 
out side and make your way to the Indian Runner.  If you read the 
description of the key it will tell you which room you need to go 
to (Room 3) and examining the receipt will give you a combination 
("0473").  Once you've looked, try to open the door to the Indian 
Runner and you'll have to use the combination that you just got from 
the receipt.  Once inside pick up the rifle shells off the end of the
counter and the health drink on the inside of the counter by the cash 
register.  Next to the health drink there is a diary.  On the wall 
next to the locked safe on the wall there is a note.  If you examine it 
you will see the combination to the back lock of "Norman Young's" 
place.  (The combo is 0886).  You can open the drawer behind the counter
and get the Safe key. This key opens the safe (What else?). When Harry
opens the safe, he sees bags that look like cocaine. Then you look at 
the picture to the right of the note you'll see that Norman's place is 
a motel.  The only inn in town is "Haerbey Inn", so run down 
Weaver Street and on the side of the Inn there's a door with a 
keypad next to it.  Examine the keypad and put in the combination 
you got from the Indian Runner.  Once inside, get the magnet off the 
sofa, then go into the door next to the one you originally came 
into.  This is a garage, and on one wall in here you can pick 
up a health drink and some shotgun shells.  Also, be sure to 
examine the motorcycle before you go back into the first room.  
Once you're back in the first room, go through the door thats 
already open.  In this room there's a save point on the counter, 
but nothing else, so go through the other door and you'll be 
in the courtyard of the inn.  Once the new screen loads find 
Room 3 and enter it (you'll use the Kaufmann key).  There is a 
health drink on the sink in Kaufmann's room, and if you examine 
the chest you can choose to slide it.  Examine the area that 
the chest was previously on top of and you'll see something in 
the cracks, but you can't reach it.  So use the magnet and you 
will get the Motorcycle key.  Now go back to the motorcycle 
and use the key and you'll get a 'small glass vial', but 
Kaufmann will come in and there will be short scene, and then 
he'll take the vial.  Now go back out on to the streets and 
run west down Sandford Street on the side with the lake.  
A little ways past the intersection at Bachman Street there is 
a niche and if you run back there you will find a broken set 
of stairs.  At the bottom there is a health drink and some 
rifle shells.  Now cross the bridge and you'll see a scene 
where normal Silent Hill becomes Alternate Silent Hill again...

=============================================================
o 3.29 Walkthrough - Alternate Resort Area
=============================================================
Items in this area:
2 health drinks
Rifle shells
Box of bullets
First aid kit
Shotgun shells
_____________________________________________________________
Damn! You're back in this crazy place again!  Look in your map and
run up into the alley north of you (its between Sanford and the 
West Sanford labels on the map).  In this alley there's a box of 
shotgun shells and a health drink.  After you get those, run down 
towards the lighthouse again, and when you reach a dead end,
there's a set of stairs on the lefthand side near it.  Go down 
those, and then over the plank and go into the door of the boat.  
Once inside go down the hall and into the next door.  Now you'll 
see a LOOOONG scene involving Cybil and Dahlia Gillespie.  Dahlia 
will tell you that you need to defeat the demon and that you should 
go to the lighthouse.  She also says that you'll need to use the 
'Flauros' (finally!).  Once the scene is over and Cybil has left 
to go to the amusement park (the other place Dahlia tells you that 
someone must go), pick up the health drink and rifle shells on the 
counter, and the box of bullets on the chair.  There's also a 
save point by the door that you came in, so once you save go out 
the door that Dahlia went in and continue on to the lighthouse.  
You'll go up some stairs and then you'll see another set of stairs 
down on the righthand side of the walkway.  So go down those 
and then cross the planks and keep going towards the lighthouse.  
Next time you have an option to go up the stairs, stay on the 
lower level and run to a deadend to get a first aid kit.  Then 
go back up the stairs and go across this level to find a set of 
stairs back down (blah, too many stairs...).  Now run down the 
walkway some more and run up yet another set of stairs.  Turn 
right and you can go into the lighthouse.

=============================================================
o 3.30 Walkthrough - Lighthouse/Going to Amusement Park
=============================================================
Items in this area:
none
_____________________________________________________________
Once inside the lighthouse there is a save point right next to 
the door.  Once you've saved your game go up the stairs and 
you'll come out on the roof where there is a BIG mark of Samael.  
You'll see a ghostly image of Alessa, but she vanishes and there's 
nothing else you can do here.  Try to go back away from the 
lighthouse and the game will automatically take you back to the 
boat.  Once you save, get back onto W. Sanford Street and go 
west on it until you reach an open door (its at the pink square 
on the building right above the name 'W. Sanford Street'.  
Go into the hole in the ground in here and you'll be back down 
in those damn sewers...

=============================================================
o 3.31 Walkthrough - Sewers/Amusement Park
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Box of bullets
Health drink
_____________________________________________________________
First examine the board on the wall and get the map of the sewers, 
and then get down to the lowest left dead end on the map to find 
a box of bullets and a health drink.  Now run up and get to the 
ladder and you'll be in the amusement park.  Run down the only 
path and then right and past the red ride to get to an ice cream 
shop with a save point on a counter at the back.  Then wander 
around until you find a horse ride.  Go up the stairs and you'll 
be attacked by Cybil, who now looks possessed...
-------------------------Boss : Cybil------------------------
This boss fight determines the ending of the game!  If you 
remembered to get the liquid from way back in the hospital you 
have two choices, otherwise you have to kill Cybil.  So anyway, 
Cybil can fire one shot and put you flat on your back with it, 
so try not to get hit often.

---(Non +) Ending Strategy---
My strategy was to walk and/or run around her until she ran out 
of bullets (you'll notice when that happens) and then run around 
the carousel until I found her and proceed to blast her as many 
times with my rifle until she got too close, then run away and 
turn around and shoot her some more.  If you do this, pretty soon 
she'll collapse (yes, it takes alot of shots even from the rifle)

This strategy is from [email protected] (Tarek Yared):
When you first get control of Harry hold "square" and press back on 
the pad twice (this will make you jump back twice).  When Cybil is 
about to shoot you (when she reaches for her gun) keep holding "square" 
and press "R1" so that you will strafe to the side and you will now be 
behind a horse.  She will shoot and hit the horse.  The keep holding 
"square" and press "L1" to go back in to her line of vision so that 
she is persuaded to try to get her gun out and shoot you again.  As 
she does this hold "square" and press "R1" again.  Repeat this until 
she wastes all her shots.
---(Non +) Ending Strategy---

---(+) Ending Strategy---
When Cybil first walks up to you to hit you (after you regain 
control of Harry), press select and use the bottle of liquid 
you got back in the hospital and.............extra scenes if 
you beat her this way? (I haven't done it yet)
---(+) Ending Strategy---
-------------------------Boss : Cybil------------------------
Now you'll have a really long sequence of events that I won't ruin 
for you here.  When you wake up again you'll be back in the hospital 
with Lisa.

Items in this area:
Box of bullets

Key of "Ophiel"
Stone of time

Key of "Hagith"
_____________________________________________________________
 ------------------------------- When you get off the elevator, 
 [!] Refer frequently to the     go to the birdcage room and pick
 maps of these areas (in 2.07)   up the box of bullets in there.
 so you know what rooms the      Then go to the furniture room, 
 walkthrough refers to and so    save your game, grab the first
 you don't get lost.             aid kit on the chair, and get
 ------------------------------- the shotgun shells sitting in 
the corner of the room.  Now go to the stairwell down and once 
you descend the stairs you'll be in a classroom.  Look closely 
at the desk to see some text, and then go through the other door 
in the room to be in an 'alternate' looking room with a table in 
it.  Examine the items on the table to get the screwdriver and 
pliers.  Now go back up the stairs to the faucet room and use the 
pliers on the faucet in there to get the 'Key of "Ophiel"'.  Now 
go to the Door of Ophiel and use the key to enter a new area.  
(Consider saving at any time, you never know when zombies may pop up).
Refer to the map of the Hall of Ophiel in the maps section and 
go into the door that is marked as the Constellation Puzzle.  
Once inside there are plaques on the side walls and 3 plaques with 
keypads under them on the far wall.  The plaques on the side walls 
are as follows...
Libra (A scale) is 2
Pisces (Two fish) is 0
Cancer (Crab) is 10
Aries (Ram) is 4

Thanks to Kevin ([email protected]) for the following explanation 
of how I got the answers I got:
"This is the most trivial puzzle in the game IMO, but all it is is 
countingthe limbs.  Pisces (fish) have no limbs (0), Libra is the 
"arms of justice"(2), Taurus (bull) has four legs (4), and cancer 
(a crab) has ten "extremities".

Therefore, Sagittarius has four legs and two arms (6), taurus has 
four legs(4), and gemini (the twins) have two arms and two legs 
each (8)."

The leftmost plaque with a keypad has a picture of Saggitarius 
and you need to push 6 on the keypad.  Next go to the center plaque 
which is a picture of Taurus (push 4 here).  Then go to the last 
one, which is a picture of Gemini and you need to push 8 here.  
So its 6, 4, 8 in order from left to right.  When you do it 
correctly the greenish stone will slide out and you can pick 
up the 'Stone of time'.  Once you have this item go over to the 
room on the map that is labeled the Wall Puzzle.  This next 
puzzle requires that you figure out how to order the names 
on the plaque (The Grim Reaper's List) on the wall near the 
Wall Puzzle door.  You can get a clue in the form of another 
plaque at the end of the Hall of Ophiel if you run down to that 
end.  It reads:
Names engraved on a lithograph.
The Grim Reaper's List.

Yes, the headcount is set
Young and old lined up
In order of age.

Then, the pathway opens
Awaiting them, the frenzied
Uproar, the feast of death!

The Grim Reaper's List reads:
35 Lydia Findly
60 Trevor F. White
18 Albert Lords
45 Roberta T. Morgan
38 Edward C. Briggs

This obviously means you need to arrange the Reaper's list in 
order of the people's age, from youngest to oldest.  For those 
of you numbering declined (hehe) I've put them in order below...

The Organized Reaper's List...
18 Albert Lords
35 Lydia Findly
38 Edward C. Briggs
45 Roberta T. Morgan
60 Trevor F. White

The riddle also said "headcount" and while I know its a stretch 
and most people would figure it out through trial and error 
(you can only input 5 letters) you need to just put in the first 
initial of each person's name.  So the code is 'ALERT'.  Once 
you've put this in the door will unlock and you can go through.  
Continue down the halls until you reach a morgue with a blue 
object on the wall.  Examine it and get the 'Amulet of Solomon'.  
Then go back towards the Hall of Ophiel and you'll see a long 
scene involving Lisa that I won't spoil for you here...  Suffice 
it to say that afterwards you actually get some decent music 
instead of that ambient stuff thats been in the whole game until 
now.  Now go back to the furniture room and use the 'Stone of 
time' on the clock and the face will shatter.  Get the Key of 
'Hagith' and then go to the Door of 'Hagith' and use it.  Now 
enter the elevator and go up to floor 2.

=============================================================
o 3.33 Walkthrough - FA Hospital Floor 2/Floor 3
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Crest of Mercury
Rifle shells
Ring of contract
Box of bullets
Camera
Bird cage key
Health drink
Key of "Phaleg"
_____________________________________________________________
Enter the third door on the left (Jewelry Room on the map) and 
pick up the 'Crest of Mercury' off a pillow, rifle shells in 
the corner, and the 'Ring of contract' off another pillow farther 
into the room.  Then go back into the 2F hallway and continue 
on to the last door.  Once you open it you'll be in yet another 
hallway (gasp!).  Go to the Nurse's Center (check the map in 
2.07 to find out where this is obviously) and grab a box of 
bullets off one table, and the camera off the back desk.  Then 
go into the key room and use the screwdriver on the steel plate 
on the back wall to expose the 'Key of "Aratron"'.  However, 
it is electrified and you can't get it yet.  Warp Door 1 takes 
you back to the very first hallway that you were in (freaky) 
but TAKE IT NOW or you will be stuck later in the game (this 
will unlock the door so you can use it later).  Once you've done 
what you wanted to do, go back to the elevator and go up to 
floor 3.  Floor 3 looks exactly like the "Other Church" you 
saw back in Central Silent Hill (are you warping around like 
crazy here, or is it all really contained within the hospital?).  
There are locked doors with buttons to push on either side of 
room, and pictures on the sides of the altar.  Go up to the 
pictures and read the captions.  The captions give you the 
clue of how to solve this puzzle.  They both give references 
to light illuminating the darkness, and this should tip you 
off that you should use your camera to look at these pictures.  
Use the camera, and white symbols will appear on the canvases.  
On the left side picture (corresponding with the lefthand door) 
the symbols look like... (where O is a pushed button)

    OOO
    OO
    O

  O     O O
  O     OO
OOO     OOO

On the right side picture (corresponding with the rightside 
door) the symbols look like... (where O is a pushed button)

    OOO
    O O
    O O

 O      O
OOO     OO
 O      OOO

Once you've unlocked the doors, go through the left door and 
get the bird cage key off the chair.  Then go through the 
right door, pick up the health drink on the counter and take 
a look at the book near the health drink.  It is a book that 
tells you a bit about some hallucinogen, so after reading it 
go back down to 1F in the elevator and go to the birdcage room 
to use the bird cage key.  Once you use it you'll get the 
'Key of "Phaleg"' (yay, yet another key...).  Quickly save in 
the furniture room, then go to the Door of Phaleg and use the 
key.
=============================================================
o 3.34 Walkthrough - Hall of Phaleg/Room of Aratron/Child's Room
=============================================================
Items in this area:
Dagger of Melchior
Box of bullets
Health drink
Key of "Bethor"
Ankh
Key of "Aratron"
_____________________________________________________________
First go into the Dagger room and examine the big cabinet in the 
center of the room.  Use the 'Ring of contract' on it (do NOT 
take the dagger before doing this unless you want to see a 
somewhat amusing death).  Once you have used the 'Ring of contract' 
you can safely remove the Dagger of Melchior.  Now go into the 
storage room and pick up the box of bullets, the health drink, 
and examine the jelly beans and open them to get the 'Key of 
"Bethor"'.  Go into the other door in the room and use the video 
tape on the VCR again to see the movie without all the garbled 
sound.  Then go across the hall into the graffiti room to see a 
short scene.  Once the scene is over go pick up the Ankh and go 
use your key to unlock the Door of Bethor.  This room looks just 
like the generator in the basement, so once you shut off go back 
down to the key room on 2F to pick up the 'Key of "Aratron"' 
(you'll have to use Warp Door 1, because when you shut off the 
power it put the elevators out of commission).  Use the Key of 
"Aratron" on the door and you'll see a long scene.  Once its done, 
look at the red object next to the picture of Alessa to pick up 
the 'Disk of Ouroboros'.  Once that is done, go into the Child's 
Room, save your game, and place all the strange artifacts you 
have collected in the door.  The five items you need to place 
(in no particular order) are...
Ankh
Amulet of Solomon
Crest of Mercury
Dagger of Melchior
Disk of Ouroboros

Once you have placed all five artifacts the door will unlock 
and you can go through.  You'll see a medium length scene, and 
then you have control again and you can go down the stairs.

o 3.35 Walkthrough - Final Boss
=============================================================
Items in this area:
none
_____________________________________________________________
There is a long (and I do mean long) scene with several characters 
and then you're fighting the final boss.
------------Final Boss : Child Goddess (Bad/Bad+)------------
This boss was disgustingly simple.  Just whip out your hunting 
rifle and start blasting away and she'll be dead within 5-15 
shots.
------------Final Boss : Child Goddess (Bad/Bad+)------------

----------Final Boss : Winged Monster (Good/Good+)-----------
This boss was disgustingly simple.  It can shoot lightning 
at you that does a high amount of damage, but quickly cure, 
then whip out your hunting rifle and avoid the lightning.  Then 
watch for sparks to come out of the chest of the demon before 
it shoots another round of lightning.  If you fire with your 
weapon at this point, it will do far more damage than a normal 
attack.  Repeat this strategy until it dies.
----------Final Boss : Winged Monster (Good/Good+)-----------

After this there is another series of long scenes and the 
credits start to roll.  Congratulations, you've beaten Silent 
Hill!

o 5.01 Next Fear Mode
=============================================================
Next Fear mode is the mode you can play after you've beaten the 
game once (on the same save).  You can pick up additional weapons 
and see a new ending (read information about the channeling stone 
for that data).

When you get to the 'Game Result' screen, you'll see the weapons 
you can pick up in Next Fear mode in the background!  The weapons 
that you can get will be shown based on your stats in the round 
of the game you just beaten.  The possible weapons  are the katana, 
the chainsaw, the rock drill, and gasoline (for the rock drill).  
Please note that not all of these items will necessarily be available 
in Next Fear mode (specifically the katana, which is a very hard 
weapon to obtain), so don't feel bad if you can't get them all.

1. Chainsaw
  This item can be obtained by going to Cut-Rite chainsaws.  
When you've only beaten the game once, you can either have this 
item or the rock drill, so choose wisely.  (Refer to weapons to 
help you make your choice.)  Once you've beaten it on Next Fear 
mode in addition to normal mode, you can have both of these weapons.

2. Rock Drill
  This item can be obtained by going into the lower door of the 
Bridge Control Room.  When you've only beaten the game once, you 
can either have this item or the chainsaw, so choose wisely.  
(Refer to weapons to help you make your choice.)  Once you've 
beaten it on Next Fear mode in addition to normal mode, you can 
have both of these weapons.

3. Katana
  This item is in the locked door of the house on Bachman Street 
(the one you use the key from the doghouse to get into).

4. Gasoline
  At the gas station (big surprise).  Use it to power the chainsaw 
or the rock drill.

5. Hyper Blaster
  Obtained by getting the UFO ending, read below. (Channeling stone 
shows up on the Game Ending screen, not this weapon).

The channeling stone is another possible item (it is in the 
convenience store in Next Fear mode if you beat the game with a 
Good+ rating).  To get the UFO ending with it (and subsequently 
the Hyper Blaster IMMEDIATELY in the Next Fear mode after you 
beat it), use the item at these locations...

-(Old Silent Hill) On the roof of the Alternate School
-(Alternate Central Silent Hill) Right outside the hospital 
before you fight the Moth/Adult Grub.
-(Resort Area) Norman's Motel, in front of the apartments
-(Alternate Resort Area) On the bridge of the boat.
-(Alternate Resort Area) Roof of lighthouse.

=============================================================
o 5.03 Game Endings
=============================================================
There are four (well, actually 5) game endings based on what 
you do within the game.
Bad
Bad+
Good
Good+

Below is exactly how to get the four endings, courtesy of 
lordnatas@hot[email protected]!

1. Don't do anything of what Kaufmann leaves in the bar and 
don't save Cybil. That's the Bad Ending.

2. Don't do anything of what Kaufmann leaves in the bar, but 
do save Cybil.  That's the Bad + Ending.

3. Do the things of the stuff that Kaufmann leaves in the bar, 
but do not save Cybil.  That's the Good Ending.

4. Do the things of the stuff that Kaufmann leaves in the bar 
and also save Cybil.  That's the Good + Ending.

Use the Channeling Stone at these locations for the UFO ending 
and hyper blaster in Next Fear (immediately available in the 
item list). (Please note that you need a Good+ ending to get 
the Channeling stone item.)

-(Old Silent Hill) On the roof of the Alternate School
-(Alternate Central Silent Hill) Right outside the hospital 
before you fight the Moth/Adult Grub.
-(Resort Area) Norman's Motel, in front of the apartments
-(Alternate Resort Area) On the bridge of the boat.
-(Alternate Resort Area) Roof of lighthouse.

=============================================================
o 5.04 Miscellaneous
=============================================================
This section is just for interesting things that I, and people 
who submitted information, have seen that don't belong in the 
normal part of this FAQ/Walkthrough.

Extra Options Screen

    If you hit L1, L2, R1, or R2 (any of the shoulder buttons) 
while on the "options" screen (the options screen off of the 
item menu), then you will be taken to an extra options menu 
where you can change blood color and do other cool customizations.  
A bullet option appears if you use this in Next Fear mode.  
A useful menu that Konami chose to hide...I wonder why?  The 
options in the "Extra Options" screen are:
-Weapon Control
  If you switch this option to "switch" when you hit R2 Harry 
will keep his gun ready until you hit R2 again.

-Blood Color
  This option lets you change the color of blood in the game 
from red to green, violet, or black.

-View Control
  This option, when changed to "Reverse" makes it so when you 
are normally walking around you are in 1st person view mode.  
Holding L2 changes you back to the view mode you're used to.

-Retreat Turn
  When enabled, hitting L1 and R1 will not cause Harry to do 
a quick 180 degree turn (a retreat turn).

-Walk/Run Control
  This option allows Harry to run without pressing square if 
reversed.  To walk when the option is reversed, hit square.

-Auto Aiming
  This option simply turns off what little autoaiming Harry 
does.  This makes the game far more challenging.
  
If you beat the game on Next Fear mode, the Extra Options screen
 includes two new options:
-Bullet Adjust
  With each time you beat the game, the bullet adjust max will 
go up by 1x (2x, 3x, 4x...) all the way to 9x.  These options 
multiply the number of bullets gotten from a box by whatever 
you have it set on.  So if you have 4x bullet adjust on, you 
will get 4 times as many bullets as the normal amount in the 
mode you are in.  You can use this on a non Next Fear game if 
there's a Next Fear save on the same card. (Yay!)

-View Mode
  Similar to view control, only when view mode is set to 
"self view" when you hit L2 the camera will switch to 
directly behind Harry's head.  


Silent Hill Street Names

    The Silent Hill street names are all names of famous 
science fiction writers.  Perhaps there's a scifi fan on the 
Konami staff?


Teachers in the School (This is from [email protected])

    The names of the three teachers on the list in the office 
of the school correspond with 3/4 of the members of Sonic Youth 
(and the only 3 original members): (Kim) Gordon, (Thurston) Moore, 
and (Lee) Renaldo. In fact the key to the house reads K. Gordon. 
So there you go: must be an old-school alternative music fan in 
the Konami Corp.


Hyper Blaster

    The Hyper Blaster (a weapon in Next Fear Mode) is actually 
the name of Konami's light gun for psx and it even has the same 
shape in the game (although not the same color).  Interesting...


Psychick TV

(Thanks to [email protected] for the info)
    It is a reference to a very inovative band much like Sonic 
Youth. They are an industrial band from the mid 80's much like 
Front 242 and Skinny Puppy. Unfortunately they weren't very 
popular and have since moved on.

(Thanks to [email protected])
It's headed up by some of the members who made up Throbbing 
Gristle in the seventies, the band which invented the term 
"industrial music". I've been a fan of theirs forever. They 
called themselves Psychick TV when they had their own religion 
called "Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth" (told you they were wierd), 
but the religion has since been almost eradicated. The band still 
exists, though. They release most of their work on Invisible 
Records.

I did some checking on the names of the locked doors in 
the Nowhere section -- the names and the corresponding runes 
refer to the "Planetary Angels" a sorcerer would invoke when 
inscribing a pentagram or a magic circle. Samael is one of 
these angels as well. 

(Thanks to [email protected] )
Did you notice that the Winged God is the spitting image of a 
drawing by Eliphas Levi (a 19th century occult writer) in his 
book Transcendental Magic. The drawing depicts Baphomet, the 
Horned God of the Knights Templar, and shows the thing as a 
man with the head of a black goat, wings, and female breasts.

o 5.05 Game Result Explanation
=============================================================
When you beat the game, you will see a screen at the very end 
that rates how well you did during the game.  This area will 
explain exactly what each thing means.

Mode:  This just tells you what mode you just beat the game on.  
Pretty straightforward.

Game clear:  This says how many times you've beaten the game on 
the save you're on.  So if this is your first time, it will say 
"1" and go up from there.

Ending: This tells what ending you got, see 5.06 for descriptions 
of the game endings, or 5.03 for how to get the different game 
endings.

Saves:  This says how many times you have saved throughout the 
game.

Continues:  This says how many times you died and were forced 
to continue.

Total time: This tells you how long it took you to beat the 
game.

Walking distance:  How far in kilometers you made Harry walk 
during the game.

Running distance:  How far in kilometers you made Harry run 
during the game.

Items:  How many items out of a possible 204 you got. The 
parentheses are for + items that you can obtain in Next Fear 
mode.

Defeated enemy by fighting:  This is how many enemies you killed 
without a gun.

Defeated enemy by shooting:  This is how many enemies you killed 
with a gun.

Shooting style:  This is how accurate your shots were at 
short, middle, long, and 'no aim' ranges.

Your rank:  This is a general rank on how well you did based 
on all the other statistics.  The big stars on top are worth 
ten times as much as the little stars.  So a way to give a 
number to the star ratings would be this...  Each big star is 
1 point, and each little star is a tenth of a point.  So if you 
got 8 big stars and 9 little stars your rating would be 8.9.  
The maximum possible rating here is 10.0 to my knowledge.

Gold Ratings:  If you do well enough in the game in certain 
areas you can get "gold ratings".  This just means that the 
color of your rating looks gold on the result screen.  To 
get gold ranking in the different areas, you must have the 
following or greater.
Gold in Game clear: 5 or more
Gold in Ending: Good+
Gold in Saves: 2 or less
Gold in Continues: 1 or less
Gold in Total time: 1hr 30min or less
Gold in Items: 150 or more (not sure.)
Gold in Shooting style
  Short range shots: Unknown
  Middle range shots: Unknown
  Long range shots: Unknown
  No aiming shots: Unknown

Items in the Background:  Depending upon how well you did and 
what endings you got, you will see items in the background.  For 
a full description on what possible items you can see in the 
background, check out 5.01 (Next Fear Mode).

=============================================================
o 5.06 !!!Spoiler!!! Game Ending Descriptions
=============================================================
Spoilers describing the game endings to follow, don't read them 
if you don't want it spoiled!  For info on how to get the endings 
go to 5.03.


-----  Bad  -----
After defeating the Child Goddess (Alessa) you will hear Cheryl 
saying 'thank you' to Harry, and then Alessa will disappear.  
After this, the game will show a scene with Harry's jeep, only 
this time, Harry is dead at the wheel...

-----  Bad +  -----
After defeating the Child Goddess (Alessa) you will hear Cheryl 
saying 'thank you' to Harry, and then Alessa will disappear.  Harry 
calls out in horror and then the credits will roll.  After them 
Cybil will tell Harry to leave, and then the building you are in 
will collapse.

-----  Good  -----
After defeating the Winged Monster (Samael) Cheryl will call out 
for her dad, and then Alessa (the winged monster changed again) 
will give you Cheryl (who is now a baby again). Harry will run 
off and Kaufmann will be seized by Lisa and dragged back under 
the metal grating.  Then Harry will run down the street with 
Cheryl in his arms.  After the credits Harry will stop and look 
at the sky.

-----  Good +  -----
After defeating the Winged Monster (Samael) Cheryl will call out 
for her dad, and then Alessa (the winged monster changed again) 
will give you Cheryl (who is now a baby again). Harry and Cybil 
will run off, and Kaufmann will be seized by Lisa and dragged 
back under the metal grating.  In the next scene Harry and Cybil 
will be running down the street with Cheryl cradled in Harry's 
arms.  During the credits movie, Harry will get up from the 
couch, but Cheryl will be in his arms.  Also, Cybil touches her 
nose and looks at Harry.  The intro FMV to the game (before you 
start a new game) will now have Cybil instead of Harry's dead 
wife after you beat it this way.


-----  UFO (Use Channeling Stone)  -----
Aliens descend upon the lighthouse and zap Harry (you) with a 
stun gun.  Harry screams, and then collapses and the aliens 
talk a little more in their bizarre language.  When you start 
a Next Fear mode game after this, the Hyper Blaster will 
instantly be in your item list. Also, the credits feel like 

science fiction, and they scroll in a "Star Wars" style.

o 6.01 About the Authors
=============================================================
--------X    Rura Penthe    X--------
Well, I'm Rura Penthe and I wrote most of the walkthrough.  Uhh, I 
would say more, but I really have no clue what to put here.  Ah well, 
screw it.  Shouldn't you be playing Silent Hill right now?  At any 
rate I'm not going to say anything about myself here, because I'm 
not a dumbass.  If this FAQ is successful I might write a Syphon 
Filter FAQ or a Parasite Eve FAQ (I originally wanted to do a 
Xenogears FAQ, but there's a very well done one out now, so I 
won't waste my time...).
Update (.5b):
Well, this FAQ seems to be quite successful, and with this new 
edition we've made it grow by leaps and bounds yet again, so 
watch out for a new FAQ by me sometime in the future.  Don't 
expect it to be on Syphon Filter or PE though...I've checked 
and there are now good FAQs out about them.

--------X    Tetsuo (I made the maps)    X--------
Whoa, hey...about me. Well letsee. First and foremost, I am a 
badass. I gotta fight off all the ladies with a stick. I 
just can't help it. And with this FAQ, i'm gonna have to get like 
a steel reinforced stick or something, cause it'll just bring more 
lovely ladies. And if you thought I was actually going to put 
something of importance in this section, then man you a sucka.
