I received my game today as well. I actually traded the first one before finishing it because I didn't give it a chance. And look now I bought it again. Although this is supposed to be different? right? So does it play pretty much like the first one. In the beginning you pick which game to play. I'm thinking Director's Cut is the full game and the Last Visit is just the new chapter? Please correct me if I'm wrong. I picked the Director's Cut and it pretty much plays like the first but I will say I can see alot better than I could with the first game. It was really dark...this is dark, but you can get around much better...I think anyway. Will there be a walkthrough for this one or only for the Last Chapter? Just wondering!

The game was too dark for me until I went into the setup screen and changed the gamma correction setting to medium; it's now perfect. It still has the gloomy atmosphere but it's easy to see everything.

I would imagine that a new/revised/additional walkthrough will need to be written for this game, not only for the new chapter but also a new walkthrough for the base game, as apparently new puzzles have been added (among other things).

It's my understanding that the new chapter "The Last Visit" takes place six years after the events of the main game; so, yes, that section of the game should be played last. Have fun!! wave

I'm still on the first day, Inferno; I'm taking my time and soaking up the atmosphere. The dark and your food selection sound like just the thing. bravo

I don't have to work tomorrow so I will have plenty of time to play. And I can stay up late tonight, as well. wave

So is it worth getting if you played & loved the original? Are there enough differences to justify buying it again?

Hi boomers!

Regarding the front door bug, we're not sure what happened with it, but we're investigating what the problem is. In the meantime, if you can't open the front door, please download this patch:

http://www.nucleosys.com/files/scratches-dc-patch.exe

It's very quick to download and install. I suggest you apply it, even if you found the way to open the door!


We're sorry about this problem - we do hope that you enjoy all the features we included, especially the new chapter with some shocking revelations! smile

Do you like the new control method?

No problem MaG! Of course, we will keep everyone updated as to what happened here (we are a bit surprised about this bug, which is obviously very notorious)

I installed the game and have a question. When starting a new game, it has 2 choices, Director's cut or The last visit. Is the director's cut, the full game with the new chapter and the last visit, is just the new chapter? If the answer to this is in the manual, I must have overlooked it. Thanks. smile

The Director's Cut is the full game of the original, with some new puzzles and enhancements. The Last Visit is the new chapter, which takes place about six years later after the events of the original game. So, if you want to replay the entire game again, you should start with the Director's Cut section first and then play Last Visit. wave
