Law & Order (2) : Double or Nothing   Walkthrough

Len Green    30th September 2003     lengreen@hotmail.com

 

PREFACE :-

 

{1}    This walkthrough describes the absolute MINIMUM actions only which you must take in order to succeed … 1 or 2 non-essentials may have slipped in by mistake! 

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 roughly 3 hours only.  This would completely defeat its whole purpose!

{2}      The object of the first part of L&O_2 is for you to assist the detective (Lennie Briscoe) to arrest the correct suspect.  Until you succeed in this you cannot advance to the second part of the game … the trial.

            In the second part of L&O_2, 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 which will be described fully at the beginning of part-2.

{3}     At some stage(s) in the game you may need to review exactly what you have done (&/or not done).  EVERY action which has been performed is listed in your log book … at the right side of your navigation bar.             

{4}     There is space for up to 84 items in your case file (‘inventory’)… which is actually a lot.  However it accommodates [A] objects and photographs of various characters, but also [B] authorizations of the results of various tests, researches, and surveillances.  If and when your case file gets filled completely, you can dump items into the trash can to make room if you need to store more. 

      But be very careful how you do this.  You CANNOT reclaim any [A] item once you have trashed it … and you might need it later for essential evidence, e.g. for obtaining warrants, etc. (You can replace [B] items if required).  However, there will be many objects in your case file which you have picked up and sent for lab testing and research, and have produced ‘no results’.  If you need more room, you can trash any of these without ‘danger’!

{5}     In several cases somebody who is being interviewed by the police refuses to cooperate.  This situation is accompanied by a partial case file appearing on the right hand third of the screen.  When you select (click on) the appropriate icon in this partial case file, the person interviewed will come clean! 

A similar method is used to open a locked door, or drawer, etc.

{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 only one of the many possible selections (not necessarily the ‘best’!) which enable you to finish both halves of the game satisfactorily, and with scores of 100%.  The choices suggested were as follows, and for the reasons given :-

   {a} Choose 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} Choose the “Teamwork” skill throughout the whole game in order to obtain some helpful built in hints.  In part-1 of the game, if ever you are totally stuck you can generally obtain a vital hint from Van Buren on the chalkboard in the 27th Precinct.  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.

          The hints, and there are many, are NOT included in this walkthrough since they are built into the game itself

{7}      Whenever you see the cell-phone icon blinking you should click on it.  You will be alerted to completed info from the various quarters where you have requested processing.  (Occasionally you will also get hints on your cell-phone, as well as odd superfluous calls from ‘outsiders’!).

          As a result of these early prompt calls, you may find some belated instructions in the walkthrough have been performed already … e.g. to go to the Crime Lab or Records & Research etc., after you have already obtained the info available at these places.

          If you happen  to get results ‘too early’, that’s perfectly OK.  The only hold ups which are likely to occur are if you’re ‘too late’!

          No mention of any of these cell-phone calls is made in the walkthrough.

{8}     It’s more than likely that there may be times when the “technicians” are not yet ready to supply your requests, and you can’t continue until they manage to do so.  In any such case(s) when the reports are still pending, simply mark time by visiting and talking to anybody.  You may have to ‘talk’ to more than one person until the reports are ready.

You’ll generally get a cell-phone call when the particular reports you are waiting for are available!

{9}     In order to see the whole map, don’t forget to scroll it down or up.

 All you need to do is to move your cursor to the bottom or top of the map.  This will produce down or up black arrows, and scroll appropriately and automatically. (You can also use the slider bar and down/up arrows to the right of the map itself.)

{10}   You frequently have to add a witness to your case file.  However, you can’t actually add the graphic of the witness.  Instead, you add the ‘witness summary’, but obtain a ‘photo icon’ of the witness in your case file.

{11}   There are (only) two ‘standard’ puzzles in the game.  If you happen to get stuck, their detailed and graduated solutions are at the end of this walkthrough. 

They are in text form for those who like to print walkthroughs without wasting much ink.

For those who so wish, additional graphic solutions are included at the VERY end (and can be deleted by those who don’t want them!).

{12}   WARRANTS :-  If you fail to obtain either a search warrant or an arrest warrant, enter your case file again and look beneath the box marked “Supporting Evidence & Witnesses”.   The number of your correct items is always listed there.  By adding &/or subtracting different icons , you can fairly easily determine which are necessary and which are not.

          In this walkthrough an occasional item may be listed which is not essential … but don’t take that for granted.  If you enter ALL those listed you are certain to get your warrant!

NOTE :- If you want to use more than 6 items, you can easily do so by utilizing the slider on the right side of the box marked “Supporting Evidence & Witnesses”.

{13}    If/when you repeat any part of the game :-  Note that when interviewing witnesses or suspects, the same choices of questions will be displayed but in different random ‘orders’ each time. 

{14}   You may sometimes think that you have not achieved the best result(s) when interviewing somebody.  In that case you can use the eraser which appears on the navigation bar.  It deletes that interview and allows you to make (hopefully) better choices!

N.B.   The selection and order of displayed questions is as described in {13}.

{15}    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.

            If not, you will have to repeat with an improved selection of items. ( See the Preface {12} ).

 

If you’ve done EVERYTHING ‘correctly’ in  part-1, you will obtain :-

“Detective Score:  ………..….  100%”.

But don’t worry if you got less than this!

So long as you’ve succeeded in progressing to part-2 (the trial), the “Detective Score” will have no influence (one way or the other) upon your finishing the game successfully.

 

PART-2 … LAWYER

 

FOREWORD :-

 

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!

N.B.  Remember to “Object” VERY QUICKLY whenever the Defense is out of line!

 

PART-2A :-   The  Prosecution investigates before the actual trial itself begins.

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 … SUCCESS.  

PART-2C :-   The Prosecution carries out further investigation before the Defense presents its case.

PART-2D :-   The trial continues:-

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

PART-2E :-   The Prosecution carries out a final investigation before presenting its Rebuttal Subpoena.

PART-2F :-   The trial continues:-

The Prosecution again selects its witnesses & items of evidence.

The A.D.A. presents its Rebuttal Subpoena.

SHREDDED-NOTE   Puzzle

{a}  The distribution of the strips is random and changes completely every time.  There are 15 strips of paper.   The tops and bottoms  cannot be exactly aligned and form slightly ragged appearances. 

{b}  There are 8 strips which have a double horizontal line across them.  You will need all of these and one which has a  single horizontal line across it.  You will also need just one other strip of paper ( see {e} below ).  ALL OF THE OTHER 5 STRIPS ARE SUPERFLUOUS!.

{c}  Any double lined strips (and the single lined one) which have their double line at the top should be (left) double clicked to up-end them to the bottom.

{d}  Start building up the note from the extreme left hand side.

{e}  The very first strip is the one which has a small round ink blot at the bottom and “F” higher up (if it’s upside down then flip it)!

{f}      The orientation of the 10 strips that you need are very roughly illustrated schematically in the diagram below … only the characters which can be seen unambiguously are included.

ENCRYPTION   Puzzle

 

I solved this puzzle by ‘brute force’ only, using trial & error.  There is quite likely a better method than the one I used … but although not elegant,  this method at least succeeded.

If/when you choose what turns out to be an incorrect letter, then sooner or later you obtain a group of letters which cannot under any circumstances form an English word (something like “YGA”).  This means that you will have to backtrack and try some alternative letter somewhere!

If anybody is stuck, maybe (1) or (2) or (3) or whatever below alone, will be sufficient help to finish solving the whole puzzle.

               

(1)     Look at the 4th row down.  The left hand word consists of one letter only.  This letter can only be “A” or “I”.  Try whichever you prefer.

Fill in the correct one which is “I”.

(2)     Now look at the fifth word along the same line.  It consists of two letters only of which the first is “I”.  The second letter can only be “F”, “N”,  “S” or “T”.  Try whichever you prefer.

Fill in the correct one which is “T”.

(3)     Now look at the third word along the same line.  It consists of two letters only of which the first is “T”. 

The second letter can only be “O” … so fill it in.

(4)    Now look at the first word along the eighth line.  It consists of two letters only of which the first is “I”.  The second letter can NOW only be “F”, “N”, or “S”.  Try whichever you prefer. 

Fill in the correct one which is “S”.

(5)     The last word in the seventh line down is a long one … 13 letters.  Four of the last six are as follows :- “T”, “?”, “T”, “I”, “O”, “?”. 

How about filling in the missing two letters making (most probably) “T”, “A”, “T”, “I”, “O”, “N”.

(6)     The seventh word in the fourth line down has now got only one letter missing which is almost certainly “H”.  Fill it in!

(7)     The sixth ‘word’ in the eighth line down has now got only one letter missing which must be “P”.  Fill it in!

(8)     The second word in the fourth line down has now got only one letter missing.

The only letter which fits and makes (grammatical) sense is “W”.  Fill it in!

(9)     The very first word of the email is missing five letters.  The most likely word to fit in at the very beginning of such an email is “CONFIDENTIAL”.

Fill in the five missing letters.

(10)   The third word in the eighth line down is missing two letters. 

They are “R” and “V”.  Enter them correctly.

(11)   The first word in the third line down is missing one letter only.

It must be “M” … so fill that in.

(12)   The fourth word in the fourth line down is also missing one letter.

The only one which makes sense is “K” … so fill it in.

(13)   The third word in the fifth line down is missing one letter only.

It must be “U” … so fill that in.

There are by now only seven letters left and the email is almost completed … so finish it off!

(14)   When you have finished it, you get the following message on your screen with no boxes etc.

CONFIDENTIAL ………….……. TO: WTR ……….…..…. FROM: DSK ………….….…..…

“I want to make it clear that all funding for human cloning projects under your supervision will be cancelled if financial documentation is not provided to me ASAP.  This will be my last communication before discontinuing your funding."
