I'm stuck in the attic...ugh. Hopefully a walk-through or Matt's hits the web soon.

You can still go outside and check things out even though they say you are supposed to stay in the attic all night! I can't figure out how to get the Ouija Board to work! But I've decoded 3 EVP recordings so far.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/03/20 11:06 PM

Same here but I did find 5 EVP's.

revco, I'm not playing the game yet but I noticed in the announcement thread that Marian posted the reason for the game update had to do with people getting stuck in the attic and then you posted that your saved games were not affected. Is it possible that it does have something to do with the saved game you used after you updated?

I was stuck before the update so that's not it. Thank you for suggesting it though. I'm just stuck...won't budge.

I suspect oldbroad is right.

Unless you played the patched version and created the save using the patched version, there is certainly the possibility that a save made with the unpatched version will retain the attic bug from the unpatched version.

I suggest starting the game over using the patched version of the game.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/04/20 02:57 AM

Ah, you mean stuck as in you can't move. I assumed you meant you were stuck game-wise. I think oldbroad is correct. too.
Posted By: oldbroad

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/04/20 03:09 AM

I'm assuming stuck game-wise also, but still, stuck before the update and the save being from before the update? Maybe just an earlier save might work rather that a whole restart?

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/04/20 04:33 AM

Thanks for the feedback...I'm starting a new game. smile

I hope the attic part wasn't too far into the game and that you get past it this time revco!

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/04/20 06:49 AM

Not too far oldbroad. I'm back where I saved before and nothing. I'm still missing EMF readings via the tasks. All others are checked. Tasks are located in the tablet.

It's the last icon (Ghost)...O.P.G. Bottom right, 6 in total I've found 5...

Thanks revco, I'll take a look later, when I play. wavegirl


Hi Revco, I found 4 analogue recordings, is that the EMF thing?

... but it won't upload to the tablet.

EDIT: Finally got it to upload. Guess I needed to click when the EMF was done?

Dark Fall-Ghost Vigil - 01/05/20 11:08 PM

I am so stuck. I have found 5 recordings, I think there's supposed to be 6? I also found a cassette tape, I don't remember where but I have no idea, where or how to play it, to hear what's on it. I can't do anything with the graph paper in the attic, nothing to write with? duh
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall-Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 01:13 AM

I was in the exact same place yesterday! Have you answered all the questions they are asking you? Some of them are asked while you are outside the house. I am a lot further and I still can't use the two cassette tapes I've found.
Posted By: TLC

Re: Dark Fall-Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 01:18 AM

No one has asked me anything for awhile now. Guess I'll go back outside and see if I can find a 2nd tape or be asked questions. Thanks. wavegirl

Re: Dark Fall-Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 02:59 AM

Have you completed all 6 of the tasks on the lower right in the tablet?

I'm going to see if Marian can combine all these Ghost Vigil help posts into just one. I think I can, but I don't want to try it.
Posted By: Marian

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 01:54 PM

Hi TLC, I moved your new Dark Fall thread with the previous Dark Fall thread that you had been posting in. This helps keep the forum tidy and enables other players to follow along with your progress more easily. smile

Hi Draclvr, There are checkmarks on the right 4 and green dots on the left 2. Are they all supposed to have checkmarks, when completed? Thanks.
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 03:56 PM

Yes, all 6 need to have checkmarks before you can advance in the game.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 04:00 PM

Thanks. How do I get the Quigaboard to ask about Isabella? I got the voice recording about her but the Quigaboard isn't letting me ask it anything new.


Now I just need the baseline EMF checked off. I thought I've been all over, with that thing.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 05:29 PM

I'm much further in the game and the Ouija Board won't work for me either!

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 05:36 PM

Ok, thanks Draclvr. Would you have any idea, where the EMF has to be used? I walked all around with that thing. hardwall wavegirl

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/06/20 05:39 PM

Since I don't know which ones you already have, I'm not sure.
You will hear the whispered voice, "Here" when you need to use it. There are 3 in the attic, 1 on the roof near the attic door and 1 in the playground before you are granted access to the rest of the house.

I see 5 Draclvr in the spoiler. Could you add the last one please?

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 12:05 AM

There are only 5 EVPs before you are granted access to other areas of the house and property.

Do you have all 6 of the tasks completed listed on your tablet? And answered all the questions correctly?

Do you have all 6 of the tasks completed listed on your tablet? Nope EMF isn't checked.
Answered all the questions correctly? Yes.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 01:04 AM

I don't even know how I got EMF checked. But,
have you used it on the radio?

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 01:12 AM

i did place it on the that..switched the knobs too. Basically walked around with it and still missing something.

I'm not sure, but
you may need to zoom in on all the electrical switches and plugs too.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 03:54 PM

If I'm remembering correctly the lab is near the stairs up to the attic. If you're looking at the stairs, its too the right I believe.
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 04:28 PM

You have to get the code to open the red door before you can get to the main room with the stairs leading to the dormitories. The lab is just to the right of the fire escape.
Posted By: TLC

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 04:46 PM

Draclvr, Do I need to use all of the gadgets in the lab to move on? I found a few things in there but can't use any of them yet and there's a locked door at the back of the lab. Thanks.
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 05:25 PM

Always use the gadgets just in case... especially the night vision. You may see something written that you couldn't see otherwise. But when I finally got the code to use that door, I still hadn't used most of the stuff in there.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 05:38 PM

Yeah I found one place with something written but I'm terrible when it comes to riddle kinds of things. lol

I am so stuck in the lab. I don't get what the writing is trying to tell me. And I've used all of the gadgets. hardwall

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/07/20 07:52 PM

I wish I could remember what I did here... I remember picking up a bunch of stuff, but not being able to do anything with it. Maybe try going outside... Let me open up the game to see if there was an EVP in this area.

You use the EMF gadget and you are told in the tablet that the "words are not random." I mostly hear them in the radios, but I can't understand any of them!

It's just a pdf file. It doesn't need to be installed. Open it with any pdf reader, or even Microsoft Edge will display pdf files.

However it is 50 pages long and would be a long time printing it all out.
Not to mention all the ink and paper that would take.
If you have a 2nd computer, laptop, or tablet, you'd be better off displaying it on that.
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/09/20 03:56 AM

I just opened up the PDF and minimized and then started the game. I tapped the Windows key to minimize the game so I could check something out in the walkthrough. Then I just maximized the game and kept playing. No need to print it out.

When using adobe acrobat reader to read pdf, you can print as a booklet, this way you only print 13 pages, with 4 sides on each paper, its easy to read the smaller text. :-)

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/09/20 08:22 PM

DreamcastDizzy, add 20+ years to your 50 for me!!

I have absolutly no idea where I found that handle, but it was quite early in the game.

I'm in the Boy's Dormitory, so I'm quite a bit further on. Just wondering... has anyone else lost their "light?" I used to have a zone of light on everything sort of as though I had a flashlight. But I don't have that zone of light any more and it's REALLY hard to see anything inside the house. I'm having to use the night vision to see anything, but then I have to listen to that annoying sound all the time. I loaded a previous save and the light is there. Glitch or supposed to be that way?

Oh, thank you for that F key. I don't think I ever saw it mentioned anywhere and I know I don't have a flashlight in my inventory. That will help a lot.

I'm in the same place and can't go any further. Guess I'll go outside and see what I've missed.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/10/20 10:02 AM

I'm stuck in the greenhouse, too.
Listening to Bear's recording does not reveal any melody. There is no recognizable music in there. ^^
I did the poem, the petals and tried all of the music tracks.
I guess there is a bug and you need to have the right music selected before you do the petal thing...
Will try loading an older save game later.

Just got the 1.03 update... hope that fixes it.

I didn't download the manual, so did see anything about the flashlight!

Everyone who bought the game from Shadow Tor is receiving a Steam key.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/10/20 04:48 PM

Do we have to buy the game from Steam to use the key? Or can we get the game from them, with the key? Thanks Marian. wavegirl


I've used the drone and went into a few rooms and the satelite (sp) for the tv.
It says to find the office key next to the Teppanyaki. What is that?

That one irritated me for a while. Look at the model of the house. Look around at the place (at the real house) where it is mentioned.
Be more thorough than me, because I haven't found it at first. smile

Now I'm stuck after solving the puzzle behind the crying boy picture. I've gotten into the room that opens up but have no idea how to do the puzzles in there, the activities puzzle and the lock with the numbers. duh
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/10/20 06:31 PM

The solution to the lock is simple...
IF you connect a list of books checked out of the library with the names of the children along with their bedsheets! I admit I just didn't get the bedding connection until I looked at the walkthrough! And I only vaguely remembered seeing the names of the books somewhere earlier.

Greenhouse
I finally managed to make her appear. I had to select the music track that was already playing again, though. And do it before throwing in the petals.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/10/20 07:11 PM

Posted By: ScaniX

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/10/20 08:47 PM

Greenhouse hints (or use the walkthrough)
0.
Save before solving the petals puzzle.

1.
Solve the poem

2.
There are 6 different petals.

3.
Only 4 are needed.

4.
Time travel is fun.

5.
One rose has yet to bloom.

6.
From the ashes it will rise.

7.
There is a music hint in Bear's recording (that was useless for me)

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 01:31 AM

I wa able to get into the lab. I have collected 3 things I know where they belong but can’t do anything yet. Yes I did the wall thing. All my tasks are clicked green so I thought I completed them all but in a post I read it said there were 6 messages, I only have 4 which makes me wonder why I have a check mark on my tasks. Guess I will walk around some more tomorrow :-)
Posted By: ScaniX

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 01:52 AM

Those 6 tasks are more like tutorial tasks. There are a lot more messages to find after you have completed them.
Walking around might help though. I cannot remember what exactly triggered the next step. smile

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 03:30 AM

Yes, the six tasks are kind of a blanket group. Under them - especially the EVPs - there will be many more to record.

Without going to the walkthrough, I don't remember exactly what triggers the next steps either. But I think there is lots to do outside, maybe?
Posted By: Winfrey

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 11:50 AM

Guess I’ll go back outside and use the devices more. Drac I put my headphones on to listen. Spent a lot of time eyes closed just listening. I have figured out about 10-15 words . One voice is easier to understand the other impossible for me .
Posted By: ScaniX

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 11:55 AM

For me the ghost box and all telephones are totally useless. I cannot understand a single word and they have no subtitles.
Unfortunately some of them are relevant for the game. frown
The tape recordings are easy, because you only need to build a valid sentence. But those others...
Posted By: Draclvr

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 03:21 PM

Even under earbuds, I cannot understand the phone conversations at all. Subtitles for the distorted voices would be SO nice!

Winfrey, listen for the whispered "here" voice to use one of the devices. Since I don't remember what else I did to get the door inside the lab to open, a peek at the walkthrough might be in order.
Posted By: Winfrey

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 03:30 PM

Drac I will try listening for that. I’ve walked all over inside and out with the recorder on an nothing. Can’t hear anything with the recorder on except static

So stuck in the nursery, where all the gas is. I went back in time to another room.
How do I use the machine with the bird and glass tube? The soul of the bird never goes to the glass tube. I checked the WT and it doesn't help me either. I'm sure I've read everything in there.
Posted By: ScaniX

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 10:55 PM

I didn't use the walkthrough. I just cursed at it till it worked.
It is somehow like this (or totally different):
Put all the stuff in place. Pull the right lever three times. Pull the middle lever to the right until the bird is smoking. Pull it to the left until the spark is getting into the glass ball. Push the button on the lower left to suck it into the tube. The right color selector should be somewhere on the left as the bird's lifeforce is small. Not too sure about the left one, though. I think I used the middle lever (to the right) on each of those three colors.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/11/20 11:33 PM

I loved the main puzzle of the game. It's awesomely scattered though the whole gameplay of the game. Putting it together was really fun.

The piano can wait for a looooong time.
I ended up recording the melody and playing it back while pushing the keys. It's actually not so bad as there are not many different notes involved.

I'm not sure where exactly you are, but here are some hints...

1.
Sometimes a pen is stronger than the sword

2.
Did it kill someone?

3.
Check the attic

4.
Pen and... paper!

5.
Place the pen on the paper in the attic corridor

6.
Also place an image of the dead (TH)

In the tunnels you need to walk around and look everywhere to find...
1.
6 fire holder curb thingies

2.
5 stone balls


The fires...
Don't expect them to make any sense. This is just a dumb minigame.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/12/20 06:37 PM

Someone on Steam postet this solution for the 5 Stones:
1- right when you exit the tunnel from the girls bathroom (turn around completely and it should be on a ledge on the ground to the left)
2 - opposite the iron bars of the cell
3 - one step before the "three urns small lake room"
4 - near the unknown chamber blocked path, turn around when facing it (i think)
5 - entrance to the Light room

The fire puzzle is just a simple order. You don't need any additional info for this.
Just look at the symbols and try to think of a way to sort them.

But for the third you need to finish the "name the place" puzzle in the boy's dorm. I tried all the combinations that seemed to make sense, but I wasn't able to make sense of it. Also two of the stripes were interchanged. When clicking on "small lighthouse" I got "Net house" and vice versa.

you guys are way ahead of me . I just beat the burnt boy at snakes and ladders, and now I can't interact with the T V. Do I have to go back to a previous save to let him win so I can look at the T V ?

I could be wrong but I think he needs to win. sherlock
Did he open the door, to the left of his picture on the wall?

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/14/20 07:43 PM

I don't have the drone yet . How do I get it? I thought I got the drone after the burnt boy beat me at snakes and ladders. According to the walkthrough, when he beats me , he disappears and activates the tv. I look at it , and then I get the message from bear that the drone is outside.

How do I let him win---it's random. do I have to go back to a previous save and do it again?

You don't cut the samples, take the tubes from your inventory to get them. And the scissors, if I'm remembering correctly are in the fountain. luck

You just keep replaying the burnt boy until you win. I think I had to play him at least 10 times before I won.

Oh you have to beat him in the game? CRS crazy Dorish, Sorry for the wrong info. woozy
Posted By: dorish

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/14/20 09:05 PM

No, I won and he set the room on fire because he was annoyed, so I had to leave the room. the wkthro says Crying Boy wins -he is happy- his ghost departs leaving the tv crackling into life. Take a look at the t v. So he has to win. What I am asking is how do I play snakes and ladders over again so that he can win and leave? I don't have the game pieces anymore, so do I have to go back to a previous save to get them again from the safe room?

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/26/20 12:13 AM

Hi all
I am trying to do the astronomy exercise. I am pretty sure I know what I need to do, but unless every correct answer is in round numbers, I can't work out how to adjust the telescope parameters to get less than round numbers (and anything not in increments of five for declination).
Am I missing something in how the telescope works? duh headscratch
Thanks!
Posted By: BrownEyedTigre

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 01/26/20 01:44 AM

flotsam...here is the answer from Matt Clark - Bless his heart, he answered me even though he was sleeping! The planets are in different positions some happen to be aligned on the telescope fixed increments. But those that are not, the player must deduce them. For example - if we had a planet between 5 and 10 and we know which one it is - then in the school exercise book we must look for that planet with a multiple choice that is somewhere between 5 and 10 - be that on either scale Declination or - oh I’ve forgot what the other ones called - sorry.

I could use some help with the EVP at the piano. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I get the "here" I use the equipment in the usual manner, but it doesn't record only brings up the piano keys. So I tried playing the tune, but now I only get the spot to record the lyric. I'm confused.

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 02/14/20 03:36 PM

If I remember correctly, this confused me too. You don't get a lyric here, but one of the sounds for the runes. Is there sort of a sparkly thing there when you are done? If so, that indicates you have captured the sound. If my rememberer is wrong, some one will have to correct me!

Hi Marian,
I took some time off from playing Adventure games to play Shooter games with my Hubby. Playing them might have helped my aim, but as you can see they didn't help my brain. lol

Thanks Draclvr,
I could get the rune/lyric recording but not the EVP. As usual it was just me. I went back and tried again, and realized that I missed the hot spot to trigger the EVP. Boy am I out of practice. On-wards and upwards. Great Game!!

Posted By: Winfrey

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 02/22/20 12:48 PM

Leave kitchen and go to painting in the Day Room corridor. Make a note of the country emblem flag
colours in the paintings.
In the Dayroom, on the floor, look at the Football Sticker Album. This will allow you to determine what
the country is from the colours in the paintings crest emblem.
Return to the Kitchen and look up the recipe for the country.
Note: this puzzle is random and the homeland country of Louisa will change.
Place the cooking pot on cooker. Gather ingredient as needed.
Some ingredients’ are growing in the Greenhouse. If we didn’t collect them earlier, return to the
Greenhouse - travel to the Sunset time to then collect them. Pick Carrots, Onions and Basil as needed.
Mushrooms, if needed, can only be found growing in one location - Between the driveway and the
playground, amongst the graves and pines trees, look close and pick them.
Other ingredients are in the Kitchen.
Make Louisa the stew on the cooker. Place all items needed inside the pot for the correct recipe. Thhen
take the cooking pot and serve her a meal.
If correct she will give you the key to the Pink Door, the girls toilets. If wrong, she will scream at you and
you will need to try ag

Re: Dark Fall - Ghost Vigil - 02/23/20 06:32 AM

That Louisa is quite picky smile
In my playthrough, she was also from Spain according to the landscape painting and to the football album, yet she refused to eat the Spanish food!
Probably a bug. I had to offer her all the available dishes one by one, until she did accept one of them.

Oh well, watched it on a YouTube vid.
