_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 2: MOST COMMON FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS----------------------

In response to bulk email...

1.  How do I get the Katana Sword?

You need to get "Good" Ending.
It's a bonus weapon.  The Katana Sword appears on the Ranking screen
after the credits, next to the Chainsaw, Rockdrill and Chanelling
Stone - You must use the "Next Fear" save that you get after this
screen to be able to collect the sword.  It's in the House next
to the Dog House on Levin Street, in the door that didn't open before,
just as you walk in.

2.  How do I get the Hyper Blaster?

Use the Channeling Stone at these locations (Super Thanks Sushi
Jimmy!)

 -Roof of School
 -In front of Hospital doors, before you meet Mothra Boss
 -Norman's Motel, in front of the apartments
 -Boat
 -Top of Light house

You will get a special UFO ending and if you save to make a
"Next Fear" game, the Hyper Blaster will appear in your item list
IMMEDIATELY!  Use it on the WB!  :)

3.  How do I beat the Grim Reaper Puzzle?

We've explained the clue better now.  Go have a look in the
walkthrough.  Type in "ALERT".

4.  What's with the story?

The endings are now available from the webpage where you got
this FAQ from- it's called "Spoilers FAQ".

5.  Can you save Lisa?

Forget it!  Sad but true.

6.  Where is the key of Aratron?

It's behind the pink steel plate.  You have to go back "upstairs"
and unscrew the plate with the screwdriver.  Please look at the
map before you email us!

7.  How do I get good ending?

I had previously said "Save Kaufmann from the Teddy Bear".  I
foolishly assumed that once people saw Kaufmann in Annie's bar,
they would pick up the clues and solve the puzzles in that area.
OH FOOLISH ME!  I guess a lot of people are too scared, or too
lazy to play the game.  C'mon guys get with it!  Don't use this
faq to run through the game!  Please only check it if you get stuck-

Anyway, to get Good ending, Save Kaufmann from the Teddy Bear and
solve the puzzles to get the Motorcycle opened!

8.  Did you know Blah Blah, I got Blah, I saw UFO Blah, Ratings Blah,
Please Kill me Now Blahahahah...

In other words, please check you have READ this faq before sending me
any questions.  I've been suprised by the way this FAQ has circulated
the net and yet I could swear it has always said visit (at least)
www.gamefaqs.com for the latest update, yet I STILL get questions such
as

"Hey, I got this big ol' sword on my end screen, but you don't mention
it in your faq v2.0, so give me credit and lick my toes because I am
a friggin genius!"

9.  (Sewer Section) Your faq says "Turn around and bear left" but
we end up at a locked door.

Ahem.  "Bear left" means stay on the left.  At the end of this path,
There are two doors here. The door on the right side is locked.
Go throught the door on the LEFT side!!!

_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 3: HINTS ------------------------------------------------------

I've noticed there really ARE some hardcore players who only look at
FAQ's when they're REALLY stuck.  So I've designed this section for
them.  No big clues or spoilers but hints on how to complete the game.

1.  What do I do first?

Collect 3 keys which are lying around the map.  There is a house
where you can use these keys to get out the back door.  If you
read all the notes found in the town area and house, the house, keys
and school location are marked out for you.

2.  Midwich Elementary School.

Find the chemical that burns something "handy".

Take the item to the clock tower.

A song is sung in a musical learning place.

"A Tale of Bird's Without a Voice"

First flew the greedy Pelican,
Eager for the reward,
White wings flailing.

Then came a silent Dove,
Flying beyond the Pelican,
As far as he could.

A Raven flies in,
Flying higher than the Dove,
Just to show that he can.

A Swan glides in,
To find a peaceful spot,
next to another bird.

Finally out comes a crow,
Coming quickly to a stop,
Yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way,
Who will be the key,
Who will lead to
The silver reward.

Clue 1: The birds in the song are of two colors.
Clue 2: The piano keys are of two colors.
Clue 3: The birds cannot sing.

Take the item to the clock tower.

The door to the clock tower is powered by electricity.

3.  Alternate School.

Something small and round will fit into the hole in the roof gutter.

Then you can get the item to get through the classroom on the 2nd
floor.

4.  Through K. Gordon's house to the Church.
5.  Hospital

If you want a "+ Ending", you'll need to pick up 1 item here
and do something with it in one of the rooms so it becomes a
different item.

Go to the lift and go to the 2nd floor.  Go out, push the doors
even though they are jammed, then come back into the lift and go
to 3rd and do the same.  Then *poof* the 4th floor button will appear.

6.  Alternate Hospital

Clouds flowing over a hill.
Sky on a sunny day.
Tangerines that are bitter.
Lucky four leaf clover.
Violets in the garden.
Dandelions along a path.
Unavoidable sleeping time.
Liquid flowing from a slashed wrist.

The order in which the plates are inserted is not clockwise-
Organize the plates according to the poem from TOP to BOTTOM.

Clue 1:  Clouds flowing over a hill
         White          above  Green

Clue 2:  Unavoidable sleeping time = Black

The Basement Storeroom has another room entrance which is hidden.
Pyromaniacs will know what to do after that :)

7.  The phonebook marks out the location of the Antique Shop.

8.  Antique Shop

Clue: "Push it" (da dadadada...) Salt 'N Peppa

9.  Alternate Antique Shop

Go upstairs er... go shopping?  Then speak to Lisa at the
hostpital.

10.  From the Post Office rooftop

Lisa has marked something on your map.  Go!

11.  Sewer

Explore and you'll be okay.  Why doesn't any monster clean up their
"bloody" mess?  That's the key to finishing this level.

12.  Sanford Resort Area

For "Good Ending", you need to explore this area but do not walk
past the S in _S_anford St on the map, or you will go to the next
"level".

Clue:  Dr Kaufmann drops something.

13.  Go to the boat down the pier.
14.  Lighthouse and back then through more sewers.
15.  To get "+ Ending" you must not kill Cybil.

16.  Final Scene:

-Constellation Puzzle

Libra       = 2
Pisces      = 0
Cancer      = 10
Aries       = 4

Clue: What doesn't Pisces have?  Arms or Legs.

17.  Final Scene:

-Grim Reapers List Puzzle

AGE   NAME

35   Lydia Findly
60   Trevor F White
18   Albert Lords
45   Roberta T Morgan
38   Edward C Briggs

Clue 1: Youngest to Oldest, the path will open.  Are you ALERT enough
to figure it out?

Clue 2: Rearrange the names in order of young to old, then type in the
initials of the FIRST NAME into the keyboard at the door.

18.  Final Scene:

-Altar Puzzle

Clue: You need the light of motivation to guide you.  In a flash, I had
it.

19. Final Scene:

The last key (of Aratron) is protected by electricity- ain't that
screwy?

__________________________

If you want to use this FAQ as a walkthrough, visit the rooms in
the order they are listed.  Within sections they are lists of rooms
rather than directions telling you where to go.  Visiting the
rooms in the order listed will get you where you want to go.  Also
you may have to use your brain at some points as we refuse to hold
your hand throughout the whole game, for then there would be point
in playing would there?

Also, this FAQ is written to set you up into the best positions to
give you a fright, so it may waffle at some points and deliberatley
NOT tell you when you're about to be attacked.  You have been warned.
__________________________

Game system-

Upon pressing a button or letting the CG game attract run you will
get to the Silent Hill game start screen, with the options (very
first time you play) of "Start Game" or "Options".

Start Game-

EASY LEVEL   : Few monsters, minimal damage.  Handgun Bullets give you
               30 ammo.
NORMAL LEVEL : More monsters, sustainable damage.  Handgun Bullets
               give you 20 ammo.
HARD LEVEL   : LOTS of monsters (esp outside in the street) and three
               direct hits by a WB can kill you.  Handgun Bullets give
               you 15 ammo.

Option Screen-

The first page is obvious, with brightness adjust etc, but don't
forget that by pressing any of the L/R buttons you can get into
the second page, wherein lies the secret options which appear
after you make a "Next Fear" save.  The two extra options are:

 -Bullet Adjust

 At default it is "x1".  This means when you pick up a clip of handgun
 ammo you get (on normal level) 20 shots.  Change the Bullet Adjust to
 "x2" and you can now pick up 40 shots.  Use "x3" to get 60 shots.  It
 goes up in value every time you complete the game ("x9"!!!).

-Retreat Turn

 Ahh haven't quite figured this out :p

Two other options appear when you have made a game save or simply
died; "Load Game" (obvious) and "Continue".

"Continue" doesn't start your game at the last place you saved, but
rather at the beginning of a section.

Silent Hill can be divided into sections thus:

Cafe
School
ASH School
Boss
Outside School
Hospital
ASH Hospital
Antique Shop
Boss

etc...

Manouvering Harry-

Try to burrow/rent/steal a rumble pad to play this game.  It emulates
Harry's heart when he gets scared and the force of impact when he runs
straight into a wall (HA HA!)  (Don't use the anolog controls- they
are rubbish; Parasite Eve was MUCH better).  Switch the light off,
wait till late at night and play alone (If you like having nightmares
and damaging your eyesight!).

*Please Note:  The authors do not condone stealing nor take any
responsibility for the act of stealing a rumble joypad and the legal
consequences that ensue thereforth.  We said it coz it sounded funny.

The controls are obvious, but remember that pressing L1+R1 will make
Harry turn 180 Degrees sharply.  This is handy for running from Bosses
and situations like when you meet a dead end and you have 1 dog 2 Eight
Men and 1 Winged Beastie running after you @_@

Pressing X activates stomping or kicking on fallen Monsters.

If the camera angle puts you at a disadvantage, press L2 to get the
viewpoint from behind your back.  This doesn't work at some points
though.

Harry can strafe by pressing L1/R1 + S.  Even more, Harry can also run
around in a tight circle by pressing L1/R1 + left/right + S.  Wow, look
at him go!  Shame you can't shoot!  DOH!

_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 5: WALKTHROUGH-------------------------------------------------

Game attract CG Sequence-----------------------------------------------

Among various other scenes, which you will get to see during the game,
Harry Mason is driving with his daughter, Cheryl.  He sees a Police
Officer on a motorbike, who accerates out of view.  Then he sees the
Police Officer's bike crashed into a wall.  Looking back and looking
ahead he suddenly sees a girl in the road, causing him to swerve and
crash.
_______________________________________________________________________

Funnily enough, if you let the game demo run, you will notice that
Harry runs into areas of Part 1 where you will need to go, without
telling you why...
_______________________________________________________________________
Start Game

CG Intro---------------------------------------------------------------

Harry Mason wakes up in his crashed jeep to find that his daughter,
Cheryl has disappeared. He leaves his jeep to find himself in the town
of Silent Hill.  It is foggy and snowing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

At this point you gain control of Harry.  Keep moving forward until you
see a shadow in the distance.  You can try and go into the convenience
store but the CPU will take control of Harry and run him in the correct
direction.  You will see Cheryl, but she runs off.  You follow her.
You go down an alleyway.  It's a basic direction with no choice but to
continue.  It gets darker (eek!).  Harry lights a match and keeps
running (!  You know with amazing skills like that, he'll go far...).
You will see a crucified dead person at the end, where suddenly two
(then three if you survive long enough) child zombies appear and stab
you till you run out of energy and collapse.

You wake in a cafe to see Cybil Bennett, a police officer from Brahms,
the next town over.  She asks you if you're okay and explains
something bizarre is happening in Silent Hill.  All the people have
vanished.  She refrains from telling you the whole story.  You are
about to leave to try and find your daughter when she hands you a

You can't get the small radio until you leave the cafe.  Upon picking

your gun before you leave (equip your gun using R2,   Press X to
fire).  After trying to leave the cafe, the radio will emit static.

*Item: Map
     As far as we can tell, most places marked out in dark pink hold
     some importance to you on your adventure.  However, see Sec. 8.
 
*Special Item : Radio
     The Radio emits static whenever a monster is near.
     It will emit a louder and different crackle when
     you are very close to a monster.

The windows will smash and you will meet the first monster, from now
on refferred to as Winged Beastie (WB).  Press X till the bastard is
dead.  Take the Radio.  Go out of the cafe.

Scene 4: On the way to School

Do not bother trying to go the obvious and direct route to School using
the map.  All routes are blocked off.

Run through the courtyard, avoiding the CZs (or maiming them with the
pipe if you feel annoyed for some reason).  In the courtyard is a clock
Tower.  The face reads 10.00.  Go up to the second floor.  Go into the
Lab Equip Room.

 Statue of Hand (Gold Medallion (item #50))

CLUE:  The chemical is acid...

ANSWER:  Use chemical on statue of hand.

You cannot get the Silver Medallion until you put the Gold Medallion
into its slot in the Clock Tower in the courtyard.

Go back to the courtyard and place the Medallion into the slot for
the Golden Sun.  You can get the CZs to follow you in a line between
the bench and the wall where they can queue up for a close examination
in the law of "Pipe" plus "Thwack!" equals "Dead Zombie"...

Once you have put the medallion in place, the clock face turns to 12.00...

-12.00 Riddle

Go to the Music Room on the 2nd Floor.  Read the clue:

"A Tale of Bird's Without a Voice"

First flew the greedy Pelican,
Eager for the reward,
White wings flailing.

Then came a silent Dove,
Flying beyond the Pelican,
As far as he could.

A Raven flies in,
Flying higher than the Dove,
Just to show that he can.

A Swan glides in,
To find a peaceful spot,
next to another bird.

Finally out comes a crow,
Coming quickly to a stop,
Yawning and then napping.

Who will show the way,
Who will be the key,
Who will lead to
The silver reward.

Go to the piano and check it.

The piano keys are numbered from left to right.  All keys included.
 

 2 4   7 9  11
1 3 5 6 8 10  12

2, 3, 8, 10, 11 do not work!
 

If you wanna figure it outself, stop scrolling now.

CLUE: The birds in the poem represent the keys on the piano.  Also the
title of the poem is the key to narrowing down which piano keys are
used.  Only 5 keys need to be pressed, once each.
 

ANSWER:

3, 10, 11, 8, 2.

Go back to the courtyard and put it in the slot for the silver room.

Go to the Boiler Room in the basement.  Switch on the Boiler.  (Good
idea to save now)  Go back to the Clock Tower.  Go through the doors
in the Clock Tower.  Follow path downwards.  There are empty medicine
bottles at the bottom.  Go out and an animated sequence takes over.

Harry finds himself in the courtyard again, however there is a strange
symbol in the middle.  There is only one way into the school.  Go to

-Library Reserve Room
  First Aid Kit (item #75)

-Library
  Handgun Bullets (item #76)

Go to the Library and read the open book.

Hearing this, the hunter
armed with bow and arrow said
"I will kill the lizard"
but upon meeting his opponent,
he held back, taunting,
"Whose afraid of a reptile?"
At this, the furious lizard
hissed
"I'll swallow you up
in a single bite!"
The huge creature
attacked, jaws open wide.
This was what the man wanted.
Calmly drawing his bow,
he shot
into the lizards gaping mouth.
Effortlessly, the arrow flew,
piercing the defenceless maw,
and the lizard fell down dead.

Okay, no prizes for guessing what kind of boss is coming up, eh?

Go to the roof.  (If you have the Channeling Stone, use it now).  There
are two drain holes in the top right corner.  Put the rubber ball in
one of the holes.  Check the other hole to see the key.  Turn on the
valve.  The water should push the key down the drainpipe.  Go to the
courtyard.  Look in the gutter to find

 Classroom key (item #77)

Go to 2nd Floor.  Open the classroom on the top right corner. In the
next room pick up the

 Health (item #78)

-Bench outside bottom right classroom

-Boiler Room:
  Valves and Gate.
  Turn the right valve left x2.
  Turn the left valve right once.

BOSS: WALKING SAUSAGE (okay I lied, it's a big lizard)

Kill the boss as he opens his mouth, like you learned from the story like
a good little kid.  Actually, the story didn't prepare you for NORMAL or
HARD Level where you need more than 1 shot to kill it!!!

Tips:  Use the shotgun! On easy level he needs about 1 good close shot.
On normal he needs about 2.  On HARD level it's a different matter.
Run around the center circle to keep him away from you (you can run
right up to his back) and shoot his head (not his tail) until he starts
to split (The music will change).
Then position yourself with LOTS of space behind you.  He will run
towards you and as long he doesn't nudge you, aim, stand still and wait
for him to open his mouth, then walk backwards while firing.  When he
closes his mouth you can step closer to regain space or move around to
a better position- then repeat.

As he finally bites the dust, cue movie  sequence.
You will see the girl who you avoided in the crash again.
Then you're back in the real SH boiler room.   You can
hear Church Bells ringing.  Your next objective!  Pick up the

 K. Gordon key (!) (item #83)

Well done, you've completed Part 1!

You can save game if you wish in the Infirmary.

house earlier!!! Update: Oh, we found the teacher's list 2nd time we
played the game through).

Just go along the bottom of the map until you reach the chasm.  Hit
left and go up the alleway.  Go up to the house with blood on the
Garage and a dog guarding the entrance. You can get in through the

Scene 3: Hospital

Go straight past the phones, 1st door on your left.  You will meet Dr.
Michael Kaufmann, who took a nap and then woke up to find everyone
gone, snow in the wrong time of year and monsters flapping about.  We
learn that Harry wife died 4 years ago.

Facing the grey blue cabinet, take the right door.  Continue through

Go to the basement door and go through.  Go downstairs and meet some
BCs.  Go to the Generator Room and activate Generator.  Go to the lift
and go to the 2nd floor.  Go out, push the doors even though they are
jammed, then come back into the lift and go to 3rd and do the same.
Then *poof* the 4th floor button will appear.  You will see the girl
who you avoided in the crash again.  Run to the double doors at the
end.  Go through and go downstairs.  Go out into the corridor to meet
a nurse monster.  She seems to have the hump.  She'll stumble towards
you and then when she's about two paces away she will make a running
grab at you.  Give her one good shotgun blast with an EXTREME Close up
to finish her off.  She'll writhe on the floor until you put her out
of her misery.  You now have to collect 4 plates to open the Nurse
Center.  You'll also meet the doctor monsters with the same attitude
problem, but they have scalpels *sweatdrop appears down side of author's
head*.  Oh yeah, don't forget to watch the hump squirm... gross...

and go on!  Go on!  Be brave!  It's gonna be a scream, baby! *Gunsmith
gets thwacked with telephone directory book*

Take the door on the right.  The door to your right contains a video
tape.  Go to the furthest door on the left.  Pick up Examination Room
key.  Alessa is the name of the girl that you almost ran over (and got
you into this mess).  Evidence points to the idea that either she or a
close friend of hers is a mental patient at the hostpital...

Go back to Room 302 and use the video tape.

Go to Examination Room.  You will meet Lisa Garland.  She was knocked
out and has the same story as Dr Kaufmann.  Suddenly you get a pain in
your head and lose it.  You wake to see the old woman, who tells you her
name is Dahlia Gillespie.  Apparently the mark of "Samael" is all over
town and you must head towards the "other church".  She leaves the

 Antique Shop Key (item #130)

on the desk and runs off again.

Read the phonebook and walk out.

You can now leave.  At the top of Simmons Street is the Antique Shop.

-Antique Shop

Push the brown cabinet.  Say hello to Cybil.  Cheryl's been walking on
air and heading towards the Lake up Bachman Road.  Harry does his macho
man impression and makes Cybil wait for him while he goes searching
through the hole in the wall.  Follow the path to see the other church.
Pick up the

 Axe (item #136)

Go for the switch next to the door.  The altar will burn and Cheryl
will come looking for you to find that you have disappeared into thin
air...

Harry wakes up with Lisa  (Get those dirty thoughts out of your mind
RIGHT NOW).  Lisa says he fell asleep, having bad dreams.  He's back
in the  hostpital.  The story unfolds as Lisa describes the town's
history in occultism... you pass out and you end up back in the Antique
Shop.  Go upstairs to find yourself in Alternate Silent Hill.  You are
at the top-right of the map, but the scenery is drastically different-
not unlike when the school changed...
 

The plot thickens...

_______________________________________________________________________
Scene 5: Silent Hill Town Centre

Head down on the map till you get to the Silent Hill Town Centre.
Go through the hole in the mesh fence in the SH Town Centre.  It's a
shopping mall.  Go up the escalator, watch the TV sequence, go up the
escalator again.  At this point your radio will buzz.  Do not be
afraid...  be very afraid *gets put in a scorpion deathlock- ARGH
SUBMIT SUBMIT!!!*  Anyway, WALK on the left side and go into the door
on the left hand side of the walkway- do not try to go further till you
have picked up the

 Rifle Bullets (item #137)
 Rifle Bullets (item #138)
 1st Aid Kit   (item #139)

Saved your game.  Come back out of the door and RUN towards the dead
body.  You must do it quickly as soon as you have left the room :p

Boss p1: Dune Larvae

Clean your bottom quickly, because there is a midly annoying larvae
that is a rip off of all the sandworms you've ever seen in the movies.
Stand still with the camera angle looking at your back.  Nearly
everytime, the larvae will appear behind you with a roar, squirt some
noxious gas and dive to the side to go back into the sand.

There is a simple timing for the arrival of the larvae.  Time it so you
can run (or walk) forward a little to avoid the gas and then turn
around and blast the larvae.  When it dives, stop shooting when you can
only see 3 or so segments of its body.

You can pick up the

 Hunting rifle (item #140)

at any time.  It's on the side of the room.  The shotgun will finish
the little blighter in about 5 shots while the handgun takes ages.
When you've hit it enough, it will curl up into a ball.  Stand back,
because you can't hit it any more.  It makes a hole in the back of the
SH Town Centre for you to exit from.

_______________________________________________________________________
Scene 6: Go back to the hospital and kick ass

Head down the map towards Sagan St.  All other exits are blocked so you
need to go down to Chrichton Street.  You can go to the Police Station
on the way to save and collect

 Rifle Bullets (item #141)
 Rifle Bullets (item #142)

The Police Station entrance is on Sagan St, not Chrichton St.

Head towards the hospital, go inside the hostpital and talk to Lisa.
Lisa will tell you that to get to the Lake you can try and go through
the tunnels at the waterworks near the Midwich Elemantary School.
Leaving the hostpital (If you have the Channeling Stone, use it now)
you will find all exits are blocked so you must go up the stairs
directly in front (next to the Post Office) and ...

BOSS p2: Mothra!

The Dune Larvae has matured into a giant moth with a sting.  It will
follow you around and sting you (doh), and emit clouds of gas.  It's
fairly easy.  You can actually push it back by walking into it (don't
get stung though).  There is a rythm to its attack.  Move in one
direction around it and stop.  Watch it follow and attempt to sting
you.  While it's moving (or rather, rotating) go back where you came
from and watch.  It should sting the empty air.  So use this pattern
to blast it till it bleeds purple.

When you kill the Moth, you return to Normal Silent Hill.  But it's
still snowing...

Arm your hammer.  Well, you can use your gun if you want.  Your radio

squeaks of the Big Cockroaches and the clicking noises of the Mutant

Go left then head straight forward.  Go left at the junction.  The next
left that you take will have a MT waiting.  Slap him from around the

Head for the Amusement Park (East).

_______________________________________________________________________
Scene 4: Prelude to disaster

Go east on West Sanford and you will find you have to go down the
Sewers- the entrance is north where the route east is blocked.

When you get into the Sewer,

-Leftside wall
  Sewer map       (item #181)

-At the ends of the tunnels are
  Health          (item #182)
  Handgun Bullets (item #183)
  Health          (item #184)

Go up the ladder into the Amusement Park.

The fairground is fairly simple in design, just follow the path; you
should see the back of the horse ride first, then the big wheel, then
the ice cream vendor (At the back is a save point).  Go to the front
of the Horse Ride to find Cybil (!!!!)

Ending Choice :  To save Cybil or not...?

Cybil will walk up to you, smack you around the face and then will try
to shoot you.  She only needs one clear shot.  If she wings you, you
can wiggle on the joypad like crazy in order to get up and run away.
If you run like a chicken from her, you will find that if you keep
running around the ride, you will find her sitting on a horse waiting
for you!  Oh how cute!  Waitaminute, she's getting out her gun...

To kill Cybil:  Walk up to Cybil and walk around her in close circles.
She will fire about 10 times.  Then she will run out of ammo.  Run
around the ride and press L1+L2 then L2 to aim and fire then move before
she tries to strangle you to death.

It was at this point that I realised Cybil was trying to tell me
something...  She would chase after me and then walk away from me
showing me the blood on her back.  I thought that was from me shooting
the crap outta her, but then I realised in the CG sequence before you
go into the Sewer, Cybil is looking around a corner when someone
throws a bottle of red liquid onto her back.  It was most likely
Kaufman who was responsible as he was dealing in the suspicious drugs.
Anyhow, when we started playing HARD level, Black Cat realised that the
plastic bottle in hospital kitchen was for the pool of liquid in the
Director's Office NOT for Gasoline as we were hoping.  I just had a
threaky idea it might work.

To save Cybil (and get + Ending)  :  On easy/normal level (before Next
Fear) let Cybil walk up to you and as she's about to hit you press
SELECT to use the bottled with the drug.  On Hard or "Next Fear", Run
up to Cybil's back or wait until she turns around and use the Plastic
Bottle (with the Drug).

You get an extra sequence where Harry explains how Cheryl is not his
real daughter...

Alessa turns up.  To put it bluntly, she kicks your ass.  Then Flauros
will activate by itself and knock her out.  Dhalia appers to seriously
TWIST the story.  It gets worse.  Much worse.  Heheheheh!!!

You wake with Lisa, who has something to tell you.  I really like Lisa.
Oh well.

  Botanical Reference Book (read)

You need to have read the notes at the Police Station to be able to
read the book.

What it says in the book:

White Claudia

               Perennial herb found near water.
               Reaches height of 10 to 15 in.
               Oblong leaves, white blossoms.
               Seeds contain hallucinogen.
               Ancient records show it was used for religious
               ceremonies.
               The hallucinogenic effect was key.

NB: I believe White Claudia is the ingredient discussed on the
whiteboard at the Police Station...

_______________________________________________________________________
Final Boss:  Cute?  Errr, Alessa looks like a goat!

If you get bad ending, you will face Alessa herself.  She has a psychic
barrier and fires blue lightning at you.  Just run and shoot till she
dies.  If you get hit, simply heal as soon the lightning touches you
(if you are in orange or red status).  Keep hitting SELECT to check
your health.

If you get Good ending you get to face Alessa in a different form.
Hmmm... Disappointing Boss this.  She hovers and then throws lightning
bolts.  The bolts hit about 4/5 times.  If you get hit by more than two
lightning bolts, press SELECT and heal yourself.  Then walk up to the
demon and full it full of lead.  On hard level, check your health EVERY
time you get hit- you'll need about 5 First Aid Kits.

I died on first try.  Black Cat took over and used the healing trick to
kill her while running around.  I loaded it up again to have another go
(press START to skip the pre-boss dialogue), walked up to the *****,
shot her about 3 times with the rifle, got hit by lightning, healed
myself, shot her about 8 times at point blank range, got hit again,
healed again, ran out of rifle ammo, loaded the shotgun, shot her 3
times and she died.  Took about 15 secs.  Hah!

Rob sent in these tips: "When the boss starts to crackle, start running
in a circle. If you can run in a continuous, uninterupted circle, you
will dodge all the lightning. Keep running until you're sure he's
stopped.  I ran out of ammo and switched to the hammer, which I
couldn't touch him with. However, two lightning blasts later, the boss
died on her own. I suppose the game is designed to recognise when you
run out of ammo while fighting the last boss."

-CHEAT sent in by Chacal:  "The easiest way to defeat the final boss
is to unload all your guns before going down that final staircase.
He dies the instant he appears."

_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 6: GAME OVER---------------------------------------------------

There are four endings.

Bad
Bad +
Good
Good +

To get Bad ending don't save Kaufman from the Teddy Bear.  The + simply
signifies if you save Cybil.

To get Good ending you need to save Kaufmann AND solve the motorcycle
puzzle (Norman's Motel).

If you got Good or Good + ending, I still think you will sit back and
get puzzled at the ending, then raise eyebrows at the CG - did you miss
something???  What the????   Yes, there is more after the credits.

After the final CG sequences you get a rating screen:  Items will
appear in the background, meaning you can collect them in the "Next
Fear" game save.  The results shown in gold means you made the special
bonus points.

You can get Good + ending in EASY mode (and have a lot of fun too).
We believe the best way to play the game would be to start on EASY
level and get a good enough rating to unlock the secret items, as
"Next Fear" will be NORMAL level.  You can also activate the extra
options.  After NORMAL, HARD level will allow you to collect both the
Rock Drill and Chainsaw and perhaps...

Our ratings:

1st ever game

Game       : Normal
Game Clear : 1
Ending     : Good
Continues  : 3
Saves      : 44
Total Time : 6h 35mins 49s
Items      : 199/204
Ranking    : 5.2/10

6 games later

Game       : Normal (Next Fear)
Game Clear : 2
Ending     : Good + (Gold)
Continues  : 00 (Gold)
Saves      : 1 (Gold)
Total Time : 2h 15mins 35secs
Items      : 201/204 (+3) (Gold)
Def Fight  : 152
Def Shoot  : 96
Ranking    : 7.9/10
(see below for our shoot rating)

In this end screen which shows the stats of your adventure you will see
items in the background that you can get in the "Next Fear":

-Under 3/10
(+3) Gasoline
(+4) Chainsaw
(+5) Rock Drill

-Over 3/10
(+1) Channeling Stone

-Good ending
(+2) Katana

-UFO ending
(+6) Hyper Blaster

These are the items that appear in the brackets.  They are not normal
items to be collected.

We have listed 209 items to collect.  This is out of a total of 204
items.  However I have been told there are only 203 items!  Anyhow,
if the maps are not items then that is 209 - 8 which leaves us with
201 items!

The shooting ratings are based on your accuracy:

Short Range
Middle Range
Long Range
No aiming

Each section is worth 25%.  But what you want is No aiming (which means
miss) to be as low as possible and the rest to be high.  If you have
been accurate with your shots all the way through the game (which just
means aiming first),  you can "cheat" by killing the boss by standing
at the edge of the area and use the handgun.  This boosts the Long
Range shots Ratio way up, so you can get something like us:

Short Range  : 0.25   - Gold
Middle Range : 0.31   - Gold
Long Range   : 0.30   - Gold
No aiming    : 0.14   - Gold

If you made up to 2 saves you get Gold.
If you made up to 1 continue you get Gold.
Time:  Under 1 hour 30 mins = Gold
Game Clear : 5 = Gold

The big stars at the bottom is your main rating.  10 small stars counts
as 1 big star (that's how you get a decimal rating).

What else do you need to get a high rating?

Running Distance:  Perhaps there is a more direct route?
Fighting:  I dunno.  I went on a killing spree (200+ RIP)in Hard Level,
and I simply ended up running outta bullets- especially when those damn
WBs kept running away.

We also have a discussion board that you can use.  Go to our homepage
at Wu-Tech.

_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 7: WEAPON GUIDE------------------------------------------------
 

Remember every handweapon has a one hit and a two hit strike.  By
holding down the button, you get the one hit which does greater damage
but has limited scope.  The two hit is the opposite in value.

Hand-weapons------------

Knife
     Aim:  NO
     Move while using:  YES
     Quick, short range.  You can kill L1 Dogs with this.

Pipe
     Aim:  NO
     Move while using:  NO
     Good for attacking:  Up to 2 CZs, WBs, Cockroaches (2nd Hit only)
     Long range, but a little slow.  If a CZ manages to grab you and
     it falls on the floor after you shake it off, press and hold X to
     make sure it doesn't get up again.

Hammer
     AIM:  NO
     Move while using:  NO
     Slower but stronger than the Pipe.
     Good for attacking:  Nurses and zombies etc.  This is the best hand-non-secret-weapon.

Guns--------------------

Handgun
     Aim:  YES
     Move while using:  YES
     Good for attacking: Everything
     No need to save bullets for the bosses.  Used best when met
     with multiple resistance.  Max Stock is 200 bullets, so (esp
     on EASY level) try to keep stock of 180 at all times.

Shotgun
     Aim:  YES
     Move while using:  YES
     Good for attacking: Everything
     If you aim and wait, the closer the enemy is, the more damage
     they will take.  I reserve this for the Lizard and Mothra Boss.
     Also use it if you feel annoyed with 3 CZ's and want to move
     quickly.

Hunting Rifle
     Aim:  YES
     Move while using:  NO
     Good for attacking: Most things
     Slow speed makes it difficult to aim on fast objects, but when it
     hits, it's pretty much lethal.  Normally reserved for the last
     boss (esp on HARD level).
 
 

NEXT FEAR ONLY:
Chainsaw
     Aim:  NO
     Move while using:  YES
     Good for attacking: CZs, MNs, MDs and MTs.  In fact you are
     practically invincible in the hospital and sewers.  You don't
     even have to swipe; just press R2 to ready your weapon and walk
     forward.  Then make lots of jokes about bleeding penetration
     when you meet the nurses... Don't bother the WBs with the
     chainsaw, it takes too long.
     "Groovy..."

Rock Drill
     Aim:  YES
     Move while using:  NO
     Good for attacking: Everything (You can crush BCs easy!)
     It's crap in my opinion.  You need to move!  And hey, the
     Chainsaw is simply more fun to use.
     "You wan't a little?"

Hyper Blaster
     Aim:  YES
     Move while using:  YES
     Good for attacking:  Everything, but not in a melee.  It's great
     for sniper action as it really isn't that powerful but it locks
     on target and keeps shooting till them creeps are history!

 THOMAS PREZORSKI <CVIEW@webtv.net> says:
 "I got  a 10 star rating, with that my HYPER BLASTER became
 stronger. It says it in the load menu. Its now Yellow laser thars
 probably 4 times more lethal."

I've seen the screen shot so I'd say he's right!

_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 8: ENEMY GUIDE-------------------------------------------------
 

     You don't have to fight these monsters to proceed.
     You can run past them and save Handgun Bullets. If
     you do decide to wipe them out, then remember you
     must not only shoot them down, but you must also
     stomp them or shoot them again until more blood
     appears and the radio stops crackling.  Otherwise
     they will ressurect.  Pressing X will stomp them,
     pressing forward and X will kick them.
 

Level 1/2 Dog (D)

For Level 1 Dog you can simply arm the knife, face the dog and walk
backwards using the double strike.  For Level 2... er... run or shoot
it.  If you have the chainsaw you can walk backwards as it jumps and
let the Dog fall onto the blade...

Level 1/2 Winged Beastie (WB) (Harpy)

You can run from these, just weave left and right slightly if they
catch up.  If I'm bored, I shoot them with the handgun coz they're
really annoying  (Make sure you don't totally kill them so you can
stomp them, hehehe).  On average it will take 3/4 shots from a
distance.  Also, it would seem they are somehow related to the chicken
as if you spot one and start shooting it from long distance- it will
fly away!!!  Just that and the fact that in the dark these are your
worst enemy makes WBs my favourite target. *update* starting using
shotgun to "kill" time.  Oh Hell Yeah.

Child Zombie (CZ)

Will stumble towards you, but if it gets closer than the hit range of
your pipe, will grab your knees.  Shake them off  by wiggling the pad
left and right and pressing X.  If they're is more than one, the other
will proceed around and slice you with a small blade.  Stick around too
long and 3 will surround you with no exit.  A good tactic is to get
next to a desk or something similar and smack them with the pipe (over
the desk).  Also there is a bug in the program where if you hold the X
button down on the fatal blow, the CZ (and other monsters) will keep
"dying" until you stop hitting it ^_^  If you wan't to run past them,
try to lure them to one side of your path and then run like the dickens.
Don't let them get too close because they can lunge and they have quite
a range for this.

Big Cockroach (BC)

Annoying little ... The pipe can finish them with the second hit of the
two hit swipe- but you have to time it.  You can run past them, and 1
hit is minimal damage.

8 Man (8M)

You can hear these guys a mile away and you will get spooked.  In the
dark, one is bad enough but three?  They love to surround you.  Get the
heck out of there and fast or use a gun.  If one of them tries to mount
you (!), wiggle on the joypad and press X or they will take more energy.

Mutant Turtle (MT)

Only a real threat when it is on the cieling.  When it gets down, you
can outrun it or use the pipe.

Mutant Nurse (MN) Mutant Doctor (MD)

Really annoying when there's more than one, because one will hold you
while the other goes for an incision in your face.  I use the gun and
when there's no way out, use the shotgun, first come first served.
If you use a handweapon (not "Next Fear" weapons) the Nurses will fall
to the floor, and writhe in pain.  In fact, they will stop if you
leave them alone (but they are'nt dead!!!)... so wait... then stomp
em to get 'em to writhe some more before they finally die :)
"Gimme a little sugar, baby"

Black Baby Ghost (BBG)

Do not worry about these.  They are harmless, just good to scare you
witless.

Teddy Bear (TB)

Basically the same as CZ.

Black Child Ghost (BCG)

These appear in the last level.  Much more of a threat because they are
like the BBGs- you can barely see them if it's dark.  When they attack
in threes (HARD level), use shotgun with extreme prejudice (unless you
have the chainsaw).

_______________________________________________________________________
SECTION 9: UNFINISHED BUSINESS-----------------------------------------

Not all the CG scenes in the Game Attract Sequence are in the game as
we thought-  Is this because they are just for the GAS or have we
missed something?

On the map it would seem most places marked out in dark pink are
significant to you on your adventure- HOWEVER:  There is a shop on
Simmons St that doesn't open.  There is also a boat below Indian
Runner that you cannot get to...

The diner next to Norman's Motel are only locked, not jammed IIRC.

In the school Chemistry Equip Room, there is Glucose and Distilled
Water.  These are among the ingredients needed to make bombs.  But you
are told you have no reason to take them...

Emails are telling me I should mention the luverrrly lady poster that
says "You don't need to look at this right now".  Well, hey,  check out
the notes on the table in the motel- Kaufmann seems to like a bit of
porno too...  It doesn't mean anything- it's just er... cool?

Misc:

-NEXT FEAR.  If you complete the game you are asked if you want to
 save.  When you do it will be called "Next Fear".  The x/6 secret
 items are available depending on what you get your ranking screen.
-There is a box in the last level that says "Psychick TV".
 *update* "psychick tv" is a reference to, I'm sure, the 80s industrial
 band Psychic TV, with Peter Christopherson of Coil and Genesis
 P-Orridge of Throbbing Gristle.. these guys were real ****ed up, and
 Genesis often spelled "c" words with "ck".. maybe one of the designers
 is a PTV fan???  Your guess is as good as mine...
-The classroom pictures on the wall look damn familiar - teddy
 bears, ghosts, dogs, crest of mercury.... And there are some freaky
 messages: "You?" "Why?" "Who are you?" "9109 CUT"
-Harry will fall over if you run him off a porch missing the steps.
 I've also seen him fall onto his knee after running down the stairs
 from the Bridge Control Room.
-*Esperandote* You get to hear the song if you complete the game with
 BAD ending.
-I've shot a WB and watch it land on a bin with a thump and then hit
 the floor with a second thump.  It also slid past me when I shot it
 from the bottom of the steps near the bridge.  I've also heard one
 land in the water with a splash.  Cool...
-You can shoot the Larvae eating the dead body at the top of the
 escalators.  If you run back to the escalators and run back again,
 one will re-appear, twice (On Hard Level).
-We also shot a WB and it landed in one of the chasms.  It should
 have resurrected, but we didn't hang around to find out.
-If you are getting bored waiting for the rating screen press START
 to skip LISA sequence, credits and CG outtakes.
-The Hyper Blaster is actually Konami's official Lightgun!
-The three teachers' names on the paper at the school reception desk
 are the names of three members of Sonic Youth.

--The next notes were sent in by Jason Coffman--
-Most of the street names are all names of famous authors.
     a. Finney- Jack Finney, author of "Time and Again"
     b. Bachman- Stephen King's pseudonym, who wrote "The Regulators"
        (most recently)
     c. Bloch- Robert Bloch, author of "Psycho"
     d. Matheson- Richard Matheson, author of "I Am Legend"
     e. Ellroy- Jack Ellroy, author of "The Black Dahlia"
     f. Bradbury- Ray Bradbury, author of "Something Wicked This Way
        Comes"
     g. Levin- Ira Levin, author of "Rosemary's Baby"
     h. Sanford- John Sanford, author of the "Prey" books
     i. Simmons- Dan Simmons, author of "Song of Kali"
     j. Sagan- Carl Sagan, author of "Contact"
     k. Crichton- Michael Crichton, author of "Jurassic Park"
     l. Koontz- Dean Koontz, author of "Phantoms"
     m. Midwich- name of the town in "The Midwich Cuckoos" by John
        Wyndham (basis for films "Village of the Damned")
     n. Wilson- F. Paul Wilson, author of "Nightworld"

-There are several film/tv references in the end credits.
     a. The music is very similar to some of Angelo Badalamenti's work
        for "Twin Peaks"
     b. The manner in which Dr. Kaufman dances is also similar to the
        Man from Another Place from "Twin Peaks"
     c. Cheryl Mason mimics the pose of Kelly MacDonald on the poster
        and cover of "Trainspotting"

-The whole fog/flying monsters thing is strongly reminiscent of
 Stephen King's novella "The Mist."
-"Norman's Motel" seems to be an obvious reference to "Psycho"
 (Norman Bates, Bates Motel)
-The amusement park may be another reference to Bradbury's
 "Something Wicked This Way Comes"
-Remember Dhalia saying "I was shocked to hear the talisman of Metraton
 was being used" ?
 In the world of Jewish mystics, Metraton came to hold the rank of the
 highest of the angels despite his not being mentioned in the
 Scriptures. One interpretation of his name is "one who occupies the
 throne next to the Divine throne."
 In a number of traditional sources, Metatron is said to have been the
 prophet Enoch, who was taken up to Heaven and transformed into an angel
 of fire, with thirty-six pairs of wings, to continue his days as a
 celestial scribe. In certain schools of mysticism, Metatron, said
 to be the tallest of all the heavenly beings (13 to 18 feet), became
 known as Lesser YHWH. In  Hebrew, the letters 'YHWH' stand for the
 most sacred and unpronounceable name of God.
-Phaleg, Hagith, and the other door names are taken from the names of
 The Olympic Spirits, as follows :
      Sun - Och
      Moon - Phul
      Mercury - Ophiel
      Venus - Hagith
      Mars - Phaleg
      Jupiter - Bethor
      Saturn - Aratron
 Which are part of the instructions for making a planetary talisman!
 There is more info at this page-
 http://www.hollyfeld.org/Esoteric/Text/Magick/Misc/aakameas.txt
 But check out these diagrams I took from there!!!

This is stuff I cannot confirm.  Read on at your own (psychological

SECTION 10: REVIEW-----------------------------------------------------

I inserted the game and let the Game Attract Sequence run.  The CG
graphics were impressive and set the story scene (deceptively).
Upon starting the game, I felt the controls were jerky and sluggish.
However once I got used to the controls, it wasn't so bad.  However at
key points when you need Harry to move suddenly in another direction,
you may find yourself gnashing your teeth in frustration;  when it comes
to turning, Harry is slow.   Running in a direction before Harry is
facing that direction can sometimes be murder, literally.

The dramatic camera angles are great and do indeed add to the tense
atmosphere but heighten the problem of Harry's mobility.  You need
nerves to get through this game; you need to watch Harry on the screen
and direct him carefully in relation to the monsters position which
can be a gruelling task at some points.   There is a great attention
to graphical detail too:  The rain falls and makes splashes on any
surface, all the shops have authentic markings and... I wonder why I
haven't seen a reference to Metal Gear Solid?

The puzzles had me thinking for a while.  I'm XX years _old_.  In fact,
some of the puzzles had no clue for the answer and we just got lucky due
to that old RPG'er intuition.  I enjoyed solving the puzzles -which
brings me onto the entertainment factor :  I rate Silent Hill highly in
that respect.  It's not very long and when it comes to rationing ammo
like in Resident Evil, you don't have to be conservative so you can let
off some steam regularly.  However Resident Evil 2 has a far wider
choice of weapons and enemies.  Silent Hill fails in this respect, but
it is only one disk and a respectable release for Konami.

The one thing that seperates Silent Hill from the other "Horror" games
is its fright factor; it's very high and much scarier than the others.
I didn't play it alone on the first try and still got scared when I
played it myself.  It's not the story- it's simply looking for monsters
in the dark, hearing them nearby and then suddenly finding them behind
you - the sound events that you don't expect.  Even when you have
completed the game, you'll be ready for the main scare scenes but not
the smaller ones as they are always occur when you are thinking about
something else...

The story has some good twists in it and the endings make you want to
know more...  but after clocking it on hard, I'm not sure I want to go
through it all again.  However, as I am writing a FAQ, I am
occasionally picking up the pad to check some things; while checking
I find myself playing more than I need to... that Chainsaw kicks ass!

In conclusion: A very good game *update- it's a GREAT game*, worthy of
purchase if your favourite type of game is horror adventure.  Also
good for scaring friends and making girls cry (on your shoulder).
Not recommended for young children.  Mentions Black Magic and
Occultism.  Nice people die horribly.  Main character dresses like
Ash from "Evil Dead" and looks great with a chainsaw while getting
attacked by a Harpy.

I'd like to say (2 days after) that I'm pretty much addicted to playing
this game- I really want to find the secret items; but this maybe
because I'm writing this FAQ!

SECTION 13: SPOILERS- ENDINGS AND WHATNOT------------------------------

v2.0
 
 
 
 
 
 

--------SPOILER---------------------------------STOP READING NOW!!!!
--------------------------STORY AND ENDINGS----------------------------

The story:  (Best Guess using the game dialogue)

Dr. Michael Kaufann may well be the director of the Hospital!
The Director's Room in the hospital room is all messed up because
Dahlia was looking for the Aglophotis (red vial).  Kaufmann prepared
for a double cross and simply left the bottle there, fooling Dahlia
into believing Kaufmann would not be able to interupt her plans.  But...

Kaufmann is a drug racketeer that makes a deal with Dahlia and two
others to bring about the birth of the Evil One in order to gain powers.
However, the plan goes wrong as first the child that is born only
contains half the soul of the Evil One.  Dahlia believes that if the
child were to be put in great pain, the other half would come.  So
Alessa is burned alive, but kept alive with a magical spell.  This
happens seven years before the time the game occurs.  This is the same
time Cheryl was found by Harry and his wife by a roadside when she was
a baby.  This is in the intro sequence.  Cheryl is not his biological
daughter.  She contains the other half of the soul of the Evil One.
When Cheryl arrives at Silent Hill, Alessa breaks the spell and wreaks
havoc on Silent Hill.  The nightmares she has had for seven years have
become monsters.  Harry thwarts her attempts with Flauros.  Dahlia wants
Alessa to give "birth" to the Evil One.  Alessa does not want this.  She
is overpowered by Flauros and Dahlia regains control of her.  At the
critical moment Kaufmann appears.  He did not want Silent Hill to be
turned into some freaky nightmare and throws a special drug at Alessa,
the same as the one Harry used on Cybil.  It's meant to extract the evil.
However, it extracts the Evil One from Alessa's body.

Bad Ending:  Alessa drops to the floor.  You hear Cheryl's voice.

"Thank you Daddy... goodbye"

Harry is not happy about this at all (awwwww)

cut scene to Harry's jeep.  Harry is dead.  It was all a dream?

Bad +

Same but Cybil slaps you and tells you to go...
 

Good Ending:

(Kill Cybil at the Fairground)

A bright light envelopes the fallen demon.  When the shine rescinds,
you see Alessa lying on the floor.   The cieling starts to collapse
and flames busrt out everywhere.  Alessa hands you a small bundle.
Within it is a baby!  Alessa points to a blue light and you run towards
it.  Kaufman tries to get up and run but Lisa comes up from under the
floor and drags him into a fiery hole.  You see Harry running down the
road as the music begins and the credits roll.  As the credits finish,
you see Harry with the bundle looking up towards the sky with an
expression on his face as if to say...

"What the ????"

Good + Ending

(Save Cheryl)

As you take the bundle from Alessa, Cybil gets up and limps towards
the blue light.  You both start running.  Then the ceiling collapses on
top of you.  They look up to see that Alessa has saved them.  They run
towards the blue light and escape.

After the credits, you get to see the CG sequence from the Intro - where
Harry is holding the baby with his wife, but this time it is Cybil!!!
Whenever you let the game attract CG sequence start, Harry's wife will
have disappeared with Cybil in her place!!!

It's safe to say Alessa has given Harry his daughter back.  The
question is: Does the baby Cheryl have a clean soul????

The options leave the game with an easy possibility for a sequel.

After Ending:

You get to see a CG sequence where Harry and the rest of the cast are
joking around, like as if they are actors making a movie.  If you remember
the intro where Kaufmann grabs Lisa's hand and they have an argument,
you see an outake where Kaufmann misses Lisa's hand and she cracks up
laughing.  Also you see Harry wake up (as in the game) and almost fall
off his seat.  I really think the motion capture is excellent!!!  It's
really realistic.  Do you like Dahlia's eyeshadow?  HAHAHHAHAH!!!

UFO Ending:

The UFOs swarm around Harry and two visitors land in front of Harry.

*bemused look on Harry's face*
Harry : Er......
Aliens: ........
Harry : Er......
Aliens: ........
Harry : Sorry...
Aliens: ........
Harry : Say, have you seen a little girl, about seven with short bla..
*Aliens shoot Harry with a stun ray*

The Aliens carry Harry under each arm and drag him off to their spaceship.

Cue credits in STAR WARS STYLE!!!

Suffice to say that the game will end here, so don't bother
saving Kaufmann at Annie's Inn or even bother collecting up items etc.
Just play the game and get to the lighthouse as quickly as possible.
 

Notes and other theories:

Lisa Garland

She was a normal nurse at some point and she was taking drugs
(possibly from Dr. Kaufmann).  She was also looking after Alessa.
Possibly because of the drugs, she didn't fully turn into a
zombie... like the others(!?)

Cybil Bennett

She seems quite stupid, but she's a toughie, eh :)

Dhalia Gilespie

She wears a school tie and no shoes.  Hmmm... definitely something
evil going on there.

The Town of Silent Hill is full of Black Magic worshippers.  Did Dhalia
take their souls?  Perhaps they are the zombies and dogs!  Maybe Harry
is dreaming the whole thing!  Maybe Harry is killing off the town
population and that is why Cybil can't find anyone!!!

The Bad Ending suggests that indeed the whole thing was a bad dream
yet that is not the proper ending!!!

The hallucinigenic properties of White Claudia and Dr Kaufmann's
other agendas in Silent Hill simply leave a lot of mess in people's
minds when trying to figure out what exactly is going on!!! I can't
really say anything about the drugs part of the story.  It just
doesn't fit with the ending.  It's like some sort of sub plot to
totally throw you off!  It could be said that the White Claudia
is actually "taken" by the player to play the game of Silent Hill.
It all isn't happening- it's just a game- when you switch off your
PSX, the drug wears off.....
 

Well, that's all for now.  Sweet Dreams my friends.  Don't be scared
of skinny looking dogs.
