What purpose of red and yellow braceletes?
There is a three radio in game. All of them suppose to tell of chapel or just one?

Both bracelets are supposed to prevent status ailmemts, like possession or weakness. Those are usually inflicted during showdowns with violent ghosts.
As for the radios, they are scattered in precise points in game so that the medium always finds a way to tell you about the chapel. That unlocks a new destination for the rowboat.

Meanwhile I'm done adding the exception handler to the game. Phoenix should be able to tell me if the crash on PS3 fires an exception, hopefully giving some hints to how it can be fixed, and just in case for covering other reports as well.

EDIT: Found what was the issue; a very stupid one indeed, caused by missing a delay slot because of micro patching. I will be adding soon a new version of the patch, with also a few text corrections.

EDIT 2: Version 1.0a has been submitted and approved.
Just in case you experience another hard crash, the game should enter into the Exception Handler and print out a few useful values. If you ever encounter a crash leading to this screen, make sure to grab a picture and report it to me.

Need a hint... How to ruin the afterlife of poker guys? Or hide in the mask room without access to a hidden room? I mean escape from east wing without saving anyone.
Also:

This is not the world of the past, and he is definitely dead. >:D

You can skip most of it. When you take the candle for the boy in the warehouse, don't give it to him and waste all your candles.

Interesting bug. I guess the game turned Stanley alive for whatever reason (I didn't even know he'd end up in the managerial office). Should be easy to fix it, I'll keep it in my list as an original bug to correct in case we have a new revision.

Okay, why am I unable to find any more candles? I need one, but the game isn't giving me any more. Am I going to get screwed here?

Edit: Annnnd I'm screwed. Just realized where the last kid is, and I need my oil lamp. Which I lost after being put in prison. Is there a way for me to go back there?

I think the last candle you get in game is located inside the managerial office (next to the room where you find the last kid), otherwise you can find a bunch inside drawers or cabinets.

Strange, because I've searched all over that room, and it's empty. There's no candles in there.

Edit: I'm going to have to start this game over again, aren't I?

I think the candles are randomized sometimes (I couldn't find any this time), so yeah, you're gonna have to restart. :P Or you can keep playing and go for the two normal endings, retrieve all the bonus items, then start a new game with those items still in your inventory. They are good for maximizing following clear game ranks.

Sigh. Can you confirm that I'm not supposed to get my Oil Lamp back after the prison sequence?

Yes, you can't get it back unless you hack it into your inventory.

Nevermind. Just beat the game again.

And wow, what an ending.  :o

Thanks a lot again. Everything seems to work flawlessly now.

Now go for all the other 3 endings and get rank "SS Esper!". ;P

Good. Don't hesitate to post about any other similar issues if you find any. At least there's an easy way for me to locate and fix them with 1.0a.

Got a soul stone ending under 3 hours - rank c+. What? I don't even use single herb. Normal ending and 6,5 hours - rank a.

When you start "new game +" you can find new items at previously empty places. For example:
herb in garden, candle in cigar lounge room, herb seed in freezer, herb near tower of grief, dried herb in a room with candle boy, candle in manager office, slides in clancy family room (that one said in gamefaqs).

never really checked out this game much but i'm assuming it's one of From's first person RPG games? if so then yay! that's one of my favorite types of RPG games (at least, those made by From.).

Astral Pieces greatly increment your score, and so do collectible items. Time and damage received don't influence it too much.

It has zero RPG elements. It's an action adventure, with little action.

He standing right before bookshelf and didn't want to talk.

Got all endings, big thanks for the translation, but game somewhat disappointment.
