                               The Cursed Diary
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
[SCENE01]

        Take a picture of yourself to start. The picture does not have to be
perfectly aligned but it should be reasonably close.

        Watch a scene, go through story exposition.

        After you are prompted, take a picture of anything in the room you are
in, then take a picture twice of a brightly-lit area.

        Look at page 1 of the AR book, and move your 3DS unit back and forth, up
and down, and side to side to get the circle on your top screen aligned
perfectly.

        When inside the house, you can turn around and up and down to look
around the house. The POV will move forward through the hallway on its own.

        Once you hear the chime of breaking glass, turn around 180 degrees and
look at the ground.

        Later on, when you are prompted to look around again, look right to see
a door. After someone speaks, turn right some more to see a girl.

        'Outside', turn to your left and talk to the girl, Maya, several times.


~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
                               The Vanished Man
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
[SCENE02]

        Talk to Maya a couple more times.

        Open the AR Book up to Page 2, and scan it. You may need to pick it off
a surface and hold it at an angle for the 3DS unit to recognise it. After you
succeed in triggering the circle, watch a scene with the AR picture, and then
you will enter a battle.

        Stand up for the battle you are put into, or otherwise sit in an office
chair (rotating chair). The game gives you a fairly good overview of how to do
things - turn around until you spot the spirit, then hold the spirit's upper
body and face within the circle to power up the smaller circles making up the
larger perimeter. Once the outer circle turns red, press L or R to take a
picture of the spirit.

        After a couple of snapshots, the spirit will start to drift in and out,
so you will need tot urn around multiple times before it stays long enough to
get a shot during a red-circle moment.

        Once completed, talk to Maya again.

                              The Blocking Hands
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
[SCENE03]

        Talk to Maya.

        Look at page 3 of the AR Book and scan it with your camera.

        Converse with Maya several more times again.

        Scan page 4 of the AR book and watch a scene, then listen to Maya.

        Scan page 4 once again.

        You will enter a fight with a ghost hand, which you need to whittle down
its health bar three times. You need to keep the bloody handprint on Page 4
within your camera view at all times, but for each of the three times you fight
and take snapshots of the hand, you need to view it at different angles as the
hand moves around.

        For the first angle, look directly from the 'bottom' of page 4. The
second time, turn your booklet around so you are looking at the handprint on
page 4 from the left side. For the final fight, turn the booklet around again so
you see the handprint all the way across from Page 5.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
[SCENE04]

        Talk to Maya.

        Battle the spirit again, turning around for this one. This will be a
significantly longer bout as the spirit has more health.

        Once again, talk to Maya.

        Scan Page 1 of the AR book, go through more story exposition.

        Talk to Maya again, go through the three text options.

        After you are done with talking to her, she will prompt you with some
more options. You can choose 'Investigate the House' and 'Camera Obscura' but
they are both textual dead ends. Select 'Diary of Faces' to continue.

[SCENE05]

        Talk to Maya and listen for a few seconds.

        Scan Page 5 of the AR Book.

        Use the D-Pad to toggle over to the Purple Mirrors Len.

        Scan Page 5 again.

        Talk to Maya.

        Scan Page 5 for a third time.

        Scan the hole right in the picture right next to Kaito's portrait on
        Page 2.

        Scan page 9 out of the AR Book.

        Scan the musical notes on page 12.

        Scan page 6, specifically the black cat.

        Talk to Maya.

[SCENE06]

        Chat with Maya.

        Talk to her again.

        Scan page 7.

        Once the brooch has stopped moving, turn around to spot the boy.

        Follow Maya's directions in turning your 3DS around. The boy is small
and will be crouched, so tilt your 3DS so you are looking down towards the
ground of your room, or else you may swing right past his head none the wiser.
This operates like a basic Spirit Fight, so catch him a few times and take his
picture once your gauge fills up/the gauge turns red.

        Afterwards, talk to Maya.

        Talk to Maya again.

        Chat with Maya some more still.

        Talk to her for a fourth time when prompted.

        Scan page 8 of the AR Book.

        Watch the eyes of the four masks. When one mask moves its eyes to look
at another mask, the boy is hiding in the mask that was looked at. The last mask
that is looked at is the one he is hiding in. Move the 3DS top screen in close
to the mask he is hiding in to scan it.

        Back out after to see all four masks again, and repeat. This time
around, two masks will move, but you only need to pay attention to the mask that
was blinking at the start. Follow this mask's direction around until it lands on
another mask, and scan it.

        Repeat this for a third time. In order, he seems to be in the lower-left
mask, then the upper-right mask, and then the upper-right mask a second time.

        Scan Page 8 again, and scan the hole in the upper-right corner. Bring
your camera on the top 3DS screen in really close to transit yourself to another
location.

        In this new area, turn around to your left to see two people and a short
scene.

        Talk to Maya.

[SCENE07]


        Scan Page 9.

        Scan Page 9 again.

        What follows is pretty difficult. While holding your 3DS with the camera
scanning page 9, lift the diary up from the right side slowly while keeping the
left side held down. This will cause the picture to 'slope' down and create a
new picture. If that does not work either, then fold the page at the middle a
slight bit.

        Scan Page 9 one last time.

        Look up at your 'ceiling' to see Koji.

        Get into another Spirit Fight. This time around, Koji can be found
approximately at standing or sitting level instead of crouching down on the
ground.

        Talk to Maya.

        Scan Page 1 of the AR Book until pages appear.

        Talk to Maya and go through the three text options before selecting
'Nothing' to continue.

        The first and last options will not go anywhere, while selecting 'She's
waiting for someone' will continue the game.

        Talk to Maya again.

        Talk to Maya.

        Scan Page 10 out of the AR Book.

        Look up when prompted to see an outline of the doll.

        Talk to Maya.

        Use the D-Pad to toggle to the Darkness Lens.

        Move around and take a picture of any random spot to get a picture of
the doll.

        Talk to Maya.

        Speak with Maya a second time.

        Yet again, talk to Maya.

        For the fourth time, speak with Maya.

        Scan page 12 in the book, the page with the notes, while you have the
Darkness Lens toggled on.

        After a brief scene, flip either your 3DS camera or the booklet upside
down and scan the notes the other way, while the Darkness Lens are still on.
Watch the short scene thereafter.

        Talk to Maya.

[SCENE09]


        Talk to Maya.

        Talk to Maya again.

        Speak with Maya for a third time.

        Scan page 11.

        Scan page 11 again.

        Turn to Page 13 and Scan the lamp here.

        Scan page 11 again.

        Scan the hole on page 11.

        Turn your view left and up to see a woman.

        Back 'outside', you will get into another spirit battle, this time with
the new woman. When you fight her, your first round with her, you can use the
regular Zero Lens. Be warned, as she will drop down to the floor and crawl
around (and your charge can drop during this time), and she may leap up at you
during this time. Hit her with a shot once the gauge turns red. Thereafter, she
will disappear into the darkness. When Maya says she is hiding, turn your
Darkness Lens. Move around until you catch sight of the spirit, then toggle back
to your Zero Lens to be able to charge your camera. Repeat several times until
you have finally defeated her.

        Talk to Maya once the battle is over.

        Speak with Maya one last time for this chapter.

        Talk to Maya.

        Speak with Maya a second time.

        Scan Page 3 out of the AR Book with the Zero Lens.

        Chat with Maya. Choose all three options before selecting the 'Nothing'
button to continue.

        Select 'The woman in black is searching for you' to continue.

        Scan Page 10 out of the AR Book with the Restoration Lens toggled on.

        Scan page 12 of the AR Book.

        Talk to Maya again.

        Scan page 15 out of the AR Book.

        Toggle your lens to the Purple Mist Lens, then scan Page 15 again.

        Scan Page 15 again.

        You will enter into another Spirit Battle. This one will terminate when
the spirit is at about half health, and a cutscene will initiate once you spot
the new spirit.

        Talk to Maya.

        Talk to her a second time.

        Talk to Maya a third and last time for the chapter.

[SCENE12]

        Talk to Maya.

        Speak with her again.

        You will enter a full-fledged Spirit Battle this time. The spirit of the
old lady is surrounded by purple mist, but except for the one time Maya speaks,
you need not use the Purple Mist Lens more than once. When you first confront
the old lady, she will move left and right a few times, progressively getting
closer and closer to you, before the gauge finally flashes red. This is followed
by a pair of arms, meant to represent 'you' in the first-person perspective.
These arms can damage you, and will flash red as well, so watch out. Then the
old woman will come out again for you to fight.

        Talk to Maya, then watch another cutscene.

        Talk to Maya again.

        Talk to Maya yet again.

        Talk to her once more.

        Speak with Maya a final time to get some background details. Once you
are done, select 'Nothing' to continue.

        Chat with Maya the last time for this chapter.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
[SCENE13]

        Talk with Maya.

        Keep the camera focused on her until you are prompted to change lens.
Toggle to the Inversion Lens.

        Scan Page 16 of the AR Book with the Restoration Lens toggled on.

        Scan Page 16 again, this time with the Inversion Lens.

        Inside, look left and up.

        This final fight is split into two. During the first, fairly vanilla
part of the battle, the final boss is fairly easy to take on, and she does not
shift around very much. After your first hit or two on her, she will summon two
dark portals that bring out other spirits, but they only take about three
photographs each to get rid of, and she does not attack in the meantime. After
that first attempt, she does not summon them again.

        The second half, where you will restart at should you perish, starts
with a fairly easy first of three segments. If you can get even one circle on
the gauge when fighting this boss, activate it to take out half her life, then
do a second time to finish her off.

        For the second segment, the boss is of moderate difficulty. If the boss
warps only a short distance, she will be in evil mode, and so will not run away
and force you to search her out. If she does move a further distance, she is in
'good' mode, and will warp towards you from far away several times.

        In her final mode, the difficulty is cranked up considerably. In Evil
mode, she has two attacks, both of which require very good timing as you only
get about a split-second of red on your gauge. The first involves her casting a
ball of purple flame in her fire, with the red gauge starting up about two
seconds after she first summons it. The second involves her coming in close to
swipe at you really quickly, but she will pull back for about a second, and this
is when to take a picture of her. In her good mode, she comes in close to you
and then makes an attempt to strangle you, which is when to take a picture.
Regardless of whatever mode she is in, try to accumulate and keep as many
circles as you can, as even a few circles shy of a short gauge delivers only
minimal damage, while a full gauge can take out a significant chunk of her long
gauge.


        Finish the fight off by toggling to the Inversion Lens and take a
snapshot.

        After a final cutscene and credits, scan Page A1.
