Law & Order : Dead on the Money             Walkthrough

Len Green       26 September 2002        lengreen@hotmail.com

 

PREFACE :-

UPDATE #1 (7 October 2002) :-

Legacy Interactive have intimated that since a number of players have criticized the time restrictions imposed by the clock count-down, they will be issuing a patch some time fairly soon.  Whether this will completely remove the time aspect from the game, or only partially, or ‘by choice’, I don’t know.

Due to this, I thought of deleting the times included here since they may (or may not) be irrelevant & redundant  … see {5}.  However, I decided to leave them in, in case they are of any assistance.  If they are useless, then just ignore them.

UPDATE #2 (11 October 2002) :-

The abovementioned patch has been released.  

It makes the clock count-down run 10 times slower --- but only if you choose the "Efficiency Skill”This should more or less totally remove the 'time' limitation.

See {5} & {6} below.     

(N.B.   I haven’t tried this, but I assume that it works well without disturbing anything else in the gameplay ?!?

I have been informed that you will not be able to use any previous saves after you install the patch, as happens with some games but not with others.).

   This patch also corrects at least one of the technical bugs which some players have encountered.

 

{1}      During beta testing there were some difficulties necessitating the replacement of the part-1 CD.  This caused ALL previous Saves to be unusable.  To prevent the testers from wasting a LOT of time & causing them superfluous repetitive hassle, a basic no frills walkthrough for part-1 (only) was issued together with the replacement CD.

This walkthrough is based to a considerable degree (but not entirely) upon the one produced by “Legacy Interactive” … and hence my thanks & acknowledgement to them.

{2}    This walkthrough describes the absolute minimum actions (I think) which you must take in order to succeed.  

However, please don’t use this walkthrough UNLESS  YOU  ABSOLUTELY  HAVE  TO.  Many items, actions, and even some ‘secondary’ locations which are not absolutely essential have been omitted.  A lot of these are interesting and provide the background story to the game.

WARNING :-  The main purpose of this game is to examine clues, interview witnesses & suspects, etc.  Some of these actions are essential, but many are fruitless or even red herrings … as in real life investigations. 

If you simply take this walkthrough in your hand and follow exactly what to do & not to do, you can probably finish the game in about a couple of hours.  This would completely destroy the whole purpose of the game!

{3}      The object of the first part of L&O is for you to assist the detective (Lennie Briscoe) to arrest the correct suspect during 7 working days of 8 hours each.  Most actions that you perform & questions that you ask (but not all) reduce your time, generally by ¼ hour or sometimes by ½ hour each.  If you fail, you have to replay part or all of the game in order to advance to the second part of the game … the trial.

            In the second part of L&O, you help the Assistant District Attorney (A.D.A. … Serena Southerlyn) to obtain a “Guilty” verdict at the subsequent trial of your suspect.  This part is more complex since it consists of several watertight consecutive sections and will be described fully at the beginning of part-2.         

{4}      As opposed to most Quest/Adventure games, do NOT “pick up every item which is not nailed down” &/or try to perform every action possible.  If you do this, you will very rapidly run out of time, and have to return to some previous stage.  You have to restrict yourself to the minimum of essential items, actions & questions in order to conserve time as much as possible.

            Note:-  There is space for up to 52 items in the ‘inventory’ of your case file.  If you want to store any additional, you can use the trash can to make room.  But, be very careful how you do this.  I don’t think you can reclaim any item once you have removed it … and you might need it later for (essential) evidence!!

{5}      Note :-  The “Updates” above are likely to modify (some of) this section :-

I have inserted in red some ‘very average’ times left at various stages.   You may have more time left (good), or less (not so good).  However, if you just have ‘reasonable’ numbers of hours less, don’t worry because all the times which just happen to be listed here, finish with considerably more hours (in part-1, over 2 DAYS) to spare than necessary!

{6}      At the beginning of both halves of the game you are prompted to select either one or a maximum of two out of four ‘skills’ (‘strengths’) … the game will not permit you to select more than two!

Once you have made your choice at the very beginning of each half, you will be UNABLE to change your selection without returning again to the beginnings.

This walkthrough has made one of the many possible selections which enable you to finish each half of the game satisfactorily, and with scores of 100% each!  It was possibly NOT the wisest choice!

In practice, it is probably better to adopt the following plan (similar to a strategy suggested in the game’s manual) :-

   {a} Use the “Evidence Collection” skill throughout the whole game to provide yourself with a magnifying glass which highlights all & only the items you can interact with … if you do not choose it, you will have to perform very frustrating pixel hunts over the whole areas of some screens.  

   {b} Use also the “Efficiency” skill which allows you to roam around as much as you like whilst conserving time (particularly if you’ve applied the patch and hence enabled almost unlimited time! … see “Updates” above).

   {c} Once you get used to the game, it doesn’t take long to restart and repeat what you’ve already played.

So if/when you get stuck or reach a dead end, restart, but use the “Teamwork” skill instead of “Efficiency” in order to obtain some helpful built in hints.  

   {d} Go back and forth between {b} & {c} as often as you need to!

{7}      Whenever you see the cell-phone icon blinking you can click on it.  Frequently you are given quite important clues hinting at what to do next, or sometimes absolutely essential info.  But quite often you just get some purely background blurb which is not really vital to progressing in the game.

          In part-1, if you have chosen the appropriate ‘skill(s)’, Van Buren writes hints from time to time on the chalkboard in the 27th Precinct.  These are generally helpful if you are stuck!  An equivalent situation applies in part-2 to faxes sent by the District Attorney, Douglas Wade, and received in the Assistant District Attorney’s office.

          However cell-phone calls generally “cost” ¼ hour, whilst accessing the chalkboard &/or faxes always do!

            I’ve included ALL cell-phone time-deductions in this walkthrough since the game appears to imply this.  But I have included NO time-deductions for chalkboard or faxes (since they may not be available in some ‘skill-combinations’). 

          Of course you can always ‘cheat’ with all these hints!  Save immediately before accessing; access & obtain the info; then return to your Save with no time deduction  :- )

{8}    In general SAVE FREQUENTLY.  It is very easy to make a wrong or redundant move!  

You have 15 save-slots.  If you like you can save batches of up to 15 ‘permanently’ (zipping if you like) before overwriting.

PART-2 … LAWYER

 

PREFACE :-

 

The object of the second part of L&O is for you to help the Prosecution’s Assistant District Attorney (A.D.A. … Serena Southerlyn) to obtain a trial verdict of “Guilty”.  It is actually divided into 7 watertight sections.  They are in a fixed order … if/when you succeed in one section, you can proceed to the next. 

So keep Saving; frequently!

PART-2B :-      The trial begins:-

The Prosecution selects its witnesses & items of evidence.            

The A.D.A. questions all its witnesses and presents its evidence.  Defense Attorney, Miles Duncan, cross examines some of the Prosecution’s witnesses.  Then the A.D.A. rests its case.  

If you have not presented your case well enough, it will be summarily dismissed … FAILURE.  

If however you have presented your case satisfactorily, you’ll have further time for investigation.

PART-2C :-   The Prosecution has a further 2 (8 hour) days to investigate before the Defense presents its case.

PART-2D :-   The trial continues:-

The Defense questions all its witnesses and then rests its case.
