Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 06/17/11 07:42 PM

Hi fellow boomers,
Has anyone unlocked the pictures section of thier game yet ? I have finished the game and there are a few pics unlocked,but I think that is because of normal gameplay. I hope someone can help. I've tried to take a few pics of (mostly) people and the cursor would turn red but he would have an excuse not to take a picture. Thanks for any help I can get.

Darn, am I supposed to be taking pictures during this game? I am in Chapter III and didn't know that. What happens when you take the pictures?

Thanks!

Hi gat
There are only a few places that you NEED to take a picture in the game to progress, but I am talking about the extra section of the game. I like to get 100% of my games so the extra portion of the game is important to me. When you load up the game take a look at the extra section and you will see what I mean.
Cathy

EDIT: Someone out there must know how to unlock the pics. I've searched around but I still can't find an answer. I've tried searching Viva Media and the Cranberry sites,but no luck so far. Please help if you can.

Still searching Becky. No joy so far. I'm still hoping that some smart soul will let us know how to do this.

EDIT: I just received an email, but it was for Black Mirror 2. I already have done that one to 100%.
Hope is still there for BM 3. Help us please.... scared

EDIT 2:

HI Ana

Cathy, I have it, but I haven't had time to play any adventures. I have at least 20 unplayed so I will, but it will be quite awhile.

I had unlocked 20 of the 24 pictures. If I recall, the biggest value to unlocking them was clicking on crows. If you walk into a scene and see a crow on a fence or a rooftop, click on it. There's no hotspot but it will fly away afterwards. Maybe that's all there was to it and I just missed 4 crows (I'm getting old).

Hi Darleen
I haven't had a chance to replay the game yet.
I'll let you know when I do. When you unlock the one with the crows, it just shows some pics of early sketches of the game. I won the space invaders game when I played. I use to play space invaders at the arcade in the early 80's.

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 07/11/11 09:30 PM

Cathy....Have you unlocked all the pic's?

I really want to know what happens after you unlock them all....When you unlocked Space Invaders...What happened? I also searched the internet...Can't find anything about "Extras" In this game... headscratch

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 07/11/11 09:38 PM

Ok Darleen
Like I said before.I haven't had a chance to replay the game. I can't remember what happened after I unlocked any of the the special sections. !!!! You should give it a go and see what you can get and see what happens. Good Luck.

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 07/14/11 12:49 AM

Hi Dar
How far did you get in the game before you started looking for crows ? I wasn't looking for them at all, at the beginning. I never new that was the key too unlock some of the pics. I unlocked 4 of the pic scenes just by playing the game normally,without clicking on any crows.
I don't think your missing out on anything,by not finding the crows and clicking on them. I really don't think that anything happens when you unlock
anything. Have you played Black Mirror 2 ? Nothing happens when you unlock the pics of that game,except seeing some earlier pics. I am a little tippsy right now,so I'll bow out and let someone else have a say.
Take Care.

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 07/14/11 08:46 AM

Hi, Cathy

I was finished with the game, but I went back to a save, and started all over....In BM 2 I never payed attention to extras...

I don't understand why the extras are there if there is nothing extra :LOL:

Also there is several slots for unlocking for games....I only found one game.. "Space Invaders"

Oh Well...
Maybe we will get some answers in the future..

Thanks

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 12/03/11 06:53 AM

Hi,

I got 100% of the extras when I played the previous game, but I've done rather poorly in this game - I only unlocked pics 8, 10, 12, 14, 18, 20-24 (that's not even 50%!). I also unlocked all videos except 20, and all mini-games except 4.

I found only two crows, both of them in the lighthouse screen.

Since it seemed hopeless, I edited the config.xml file and manually unlocked all the missing pictures and the one missing video.
However, unlocking the missing mini-game can't be done in this method, so I'd appreciate it if someone will let me know what's in mini-game #4...

Thanks.

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 07/14/12 08:17 PM

Did you ever get your answer for this?

I don't know how you are really supposed to unlock this inside the game, but you can add this to the xml file in the Bonus section:

<Minigame New="0" Name="BigHead"/>

It's very funny.

That's the 4th 'game'. It's also available in Black Mirror 2.

Since I see you have already edited your xml file, I will not take the time to tell you how to do it, etc. But if someone else needs to know that, please write back here.

Hi indie17
I would like to learn how to edit the xml file if you don't mind.

Cathy

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 07/15/12 09:13 PM

Hi Cathy.

Find the BlackMirrorIII folder under your 'My Documents' folder.

Make a backup of the file named config.xml (simply right-click copy the file, then paste in the same folder).

Now use Wordpad to edit the config.xml. Remember, if you mess anything up, you have the copy you just made that you can rename and use.

You will find the Bonus section towards the bottom of this file. It starts with
<Bonus>

and ends with

</Bonus>

You can replace whatever is in there with this:

Yeah, I finally figured it out a while ago, thanks. This is very unsatisfying though, compared to the beautiful work we've done on BM2...

It seems that in this game it was badly designed. In the previous game there was some logic to this, and in this one it seems that it was just shoved in the last minute. Perhaps there's even a bug that prevents all extras to be unlocked, like the bug in The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav.

Unless someone can ask one of the designers to dig it up from their design docs, I think it's a lost cause.

Hi, all!

I've been working on a BM3 walkthrough and have found all the "extras" triggers except for pictures 9, 10, 17 and 18. (I know the locations of 17 and 18 -- I've unlocked them in the past -- but haven't yet worked out the precise circumstances to repeat it. They seem to be circumstance-based -- that is, relating to what else you have or what else you've done at the time.)

Can anyone help with these four? I'll be happy to help with any you don't know about. smile

Thanks!

Peter

Re: Black Mirror 3 unlock pictures. - 12/31/12 03:35 PM

For anyone who might still be following this, I've finally sorted out pictures 17 and 18. (And they're not circumstance-based after all.) That leaves just 9 and 10 as yet unsolved.
