Hmm, care to be more specific? Not so much what it said, but where, so I can narrow my hunt?


First and foremost - I'm in no way saying I got the 'alternate' ending. headscratch

I just played the game differently than I normally would - and some places that I can remember getting different responses were when attempting to get Michael to write, when Michael was going to leave in his car, and also in Michael's journal. There might have been others, but I don't recall them right now. grin

Like I said, I would love to know how 'alternate' the alternate ending actually is. It would be really funny if we had actually seen it without knowing. think

Well I did do that as much as I think I could, but I'm still not sure where these "different dialogues" are supposed to be... maybe confounded by the fact that I don't really remember every specific detail about what was or wasn't said in the original. I could have heard new stuff and not even noticed it. Though I'm sure I would if it adds anything significant to the plot...?

In the alternate ending --- Michael speaks of something he left behind and tears in his eyes. --

I still haven't reached the alternate ending although the dialogues where writing his book was addtitional.

---OK trying it again

I think the mistake might have been throwing caution to the wind here and using the Typewriter every hour laugh

I'm confused.

Shouldn't talk of the alternate ending be in the hints forum section?

I just received my copy, and for me at least knowing the alternate ending is a spoiler.

Thanks for listening!

ces...Discussions is the correct place to discuss the ending. The real spoilers are in spoiler tags and the rest of the conversations are not real spoilers.

Hope you enjoy the game.

Did you actually get that dialogue? I didn't get that dialogue, so that must mean I need try number 4. Yikes!

think I must have done the required action too often. Boy, I hope the patch makes getting the alternate ending easier.

---Edit---
No matter how often I march Michael to the typewriter, I have only been able to get him to write one page for his book. Here's a question for anyone playing the game - Has anyone been able to get Michael to write more than one page for his book?

Interesting. I've got the same number of pages, but definitely haven't heard the "left behind" dialogue yet... Back to searching I guess!

Thanks Inferno.

I'm getting the same pages that you are. So that means so far we all are getting Michael to write the same amount of book.

Hmmmmm - my error must lie elsewhere.

Has anyone actually seen the alternate ending - beside the game developers? lol

I got the alternative ending from following hints on the developers forum - and belive me it is well worth seeing. I think it's an even better ending than the original

I got the "Alternate ending" a while ago and must respectfully disagree with Old Lady. The alternate is a more definitely 'done' ending, but it doesn't go very well with the "The Last Visit" or with any additions that are rumored for the future. I really liked the vagueness and ambivalence of all the other endings.

It isn't supposed to. This was the original ending before the first release of Scratches. It was offered in the DC version only as an alternative, so that fans could see it. It has nothing to do with the published final version of the Scrathces game or the DC version. And so --- nothing to do with the Last Visit.

Many times -- directors will place alternate endings in motion picture DVD's ... Think of it as a huge Easter Egg.

I loved it.
