C. Special Thanks

A. Introduction:

There are many faq's around the Internet talking about RE3 and its 
secrets. But I think this is the first one to tell you all about the 30 
files that are scattered throughout the streets and buildings of Raccoon 
City. So, I'm gonna tell you where to find them all and, if you're the 
kind of "lazy guy", you can just sit back and read them all right here! 
There's a rumour that if you find all files in order, you will earn 
"Jill's Secret Diary". But I found all files in order, but didn't earn 
anything. If you know something about it, please e-mail me.

B. Files locations and Descriptions:

3. Clock Tower Postcard:

In the Bar, when you first talk to Brad Vickers.

A picture postcard of a clock tower. The following explanation is 
printed on the backside, "A landmark spot: Saint Michael Clock Tower." 

4. Photo A:

With a dead police officer, in a corridor where you have to use your 
lighter for the first time.

The policemen are pressing forward. It's dated "September 27" 

5. Marvin's report:

In the Raccoon Police Department (RPD), with the dead police officer 
Marvin Branagh. His dead body can be found in the first room you enter 
after the entrance hall in the RPD.

"Report" September 24th 
There are reports of a theft in the municipal building before dawn. A 
jewel-decorated clock at the main gate was damaged. Two of the twelve 
gems that are installed on the face of the clock are missing. Due to the 
lack of available officers at this time, I have no choice but to suspend 
the research of this case. Signed Marvin Branagh. 
"Report" September 26th 
Based upon an autopsy report of a 42-year-old restaurant owner, I have 
discovered that he has one of the missing gems. He apparently took 
shelter in the police department at about 10am, when he was shot to 
death within 10 minutes of having developed the symptoms. Since the city 
is currently under martial law, we are forced to suspend this case. At 
this time, we'll keep the gem as evidence. 
Signed Marvin Branagh 

6. David's Memo:

Dark Room with the old typewriter in the RPD.

My sanity is at its end....I still can't believe this is happening. We 
lost another man yesterday. Meyer; one of our better marksmen. He saw me 
panic once we were overrun by the zombies, but he came back to save 
me. But when the time came to return the debt, I ran. I can still hear 
him calling out my name. I can still hear the screams coming from 
behind. The sound of his flesh being stripped from its bones. I was 
afraid....terrified.... It's the 27th. The fight to stay alive 
continues. I took out several zombies, who managed to break through the 
barricades. Now I'm cutting through the chill with whisky, unloading my 
Mossberg on anything undead. That shotgun's become a close friend of 
mine. I've blasted many a zombie into fertilizer with it. We've lost 13 
men as of yesterday. In 3 hours, we'll bicker over trivial things in the 
meeting room. It's a total waste of time. When I finish this bottle, my 
old friend Mossberg will be turning one lost body into fertilizer. Peace 
at last. I can hardly wait. 

7. Fax from Kendo Gun Shop:

Fax machine in the S.T.A.R.S Office.

To the boys of S.T.A.R.S., I have some good news for you from my brother 
Joe. He has finished the new handgun for official use. It is the Ma2F 
S.T.A.R.S. Special, but he calls it the "Samurai Edge". Joe said, if you 
miss the targets with this, you should carry a teething 
ring instead of a gun in you holster. The goods will be delivered along 
with their proper documentation. I'm sure you'll be surprised when you 
see what kind of excellent parts are used for the Ma2F. I know that 
you'll want to thank the good people who developed it.

8. Mercenary's Diary:

Right after you use the LockPick for the first time, go straight ahead 
and you will find it with a dead body in a corner.

September 1st.
Following six months of intensive training, my body's edge has returned. 
I was a good soldier, but they ordered my execution with no reason 
given. I was tortured and forced to give a false confession. But
 on the morning of my execution, a miracle happened. The company had 
helped me out, giving me a second lease of life. 
September 15th. I ended my vacation short and returned to the HQ office. 
It looks like UBCS unit's been called into action. Umbrella maintains 
its own paramilitary unit to counter corporate terrorism and V.I.P. 
abduction. In addition, they have night men who specialize in 
handling problems caused by illegal products. I'm currently a member
 of the latter. September 28th. Dawn's here, but we're still slogging 
through this nightmare. There are no provisions of any kind here. The 
undead walk the streets feeding upon the flesh of the living. Given the 
choice again, I would rather have been executed. Death row was a 
heavenly asylum compared to this place. I've chosen to pull the trigger 
myself, in the hope that my dead body won't come back to life. 

9. City Guide:

In the restaurant, over a table.

The tracks of our City Dear Citizens, Thanks to kind and generous people 
of Umbrella Inc., this is a peaceful and friendly city. The vast 
donations from Umbrella Inc. have been used for welfare work, the 
construction of public utilities, and to help maintain public peace. In 
1992, it was my 5th year as Mayor of our beautiful city. It was then 
that through many donations and hard work our city was able to rebuild 
the municipal building, create a state of the art hospital. In honour of 
these fine accomplishments, I was awarded with a grand statue that same 
year. The statue rests in the municipal building. I came to this city as 
an engineer more than 35 years ago. I made contributions to the electric 
systems, and to the installation of the cable car. I pledge to follow 
the tradition of this fine city and will devote my life to its

12. Reporters Memo:
"The Raccoon Press" office, 2nd floor.

At last I have found the evidence I need to prove that "cannibal 
disease" is indeed happening ion this city. One man actually ate people 
to death. He was like a savage animal tearing away a new flesh. It was 
completely disgusting. I have heard rumors that many people are 
suffering from this disease now. However, the causes of the disease are 
not yet known. Is this another mystery of the present disease? I will 
have to check on it.... They have placed Racoon city under martial law 
because of the cannibal disease. I have lost contact with the media 
outside of the city, but I won't give up. As a journalist, I won't keep 
my eyes shut and walk away. I have a duty to the people and my 
profession. I don't think the disease had spread nationwide yet. I 
believe that this city holds the key to its creation and cure. In fact, 
I'm sure of it. The military has set up blockades around the city to 
keep people from escaping and spreading the disease. Most of the 
citizens have either died or have come in contact with the disease. I 
know that it is the right decision to quarantine the city, but I can't 
help but pity myself. If I am infected or eaten, it doesn't matter. My 
fate is already sealed. All I have left is my journalism. I won't give 
up until I solve the mystery of this deadly disease. I have just 
discovered that the disease is not spread through air, but by some other 

13. Mechanic's Memo:

In the Train.

I know that you're intimidated by your new job Kevin, so let me tell you 
how to make sure that you and your training get along just fine. You 
see, these carriages were made in Europe in 1968, and then imported from 
Europe. Sometimes they get rickety, but they still work because they are 
simple, stubborn and strong. We can always depend on them. If they have 
a bad day and are malfunctioning, you'll need to take a good look at 
their circuits for any trouble. Once you discover what's wrong, you'll 
be able to fix it easily. I'm sure that you'll be able to avoid these 
nasty little malfunctions if you check the parts everyday. These old 
trains will surely have problems if you don't remember to check them 
out. Just remember that if you need to replace anything, you have to 
choose a suitable part. When I say suitable, I mean that even you can't 
find another original part, you'd better find something that works good 
enough. Even with regard to oil, you must always prepare good quality 
oil for these trains. Never forget Kevin that a man may betray others, 
but a machine won't. 

14. Managers Report:

Sales Office (a room where there's a TV and a remote control), over the 

Before you begin your new position, please allow mw to give you some 
advice. Some of the medicine in the storage room is unstable and their 
quality will deteriorate under changing temperatures or humidity. 
Therefore, you must remember to keep the temperature the same in the 
storage room at all times. You should personally check it everyday. 
Although the computer checks it around the clock, a machine is not 
perfect. Try and remember that a machine is no more than a tool to be 
used by people. You must check all personnel coming and going to the 
storage room. Many dangerous drugs are stored there, if any of them are 
missing you have a serious problem on your hands. The door to the 
storage room is always locked, but when you let personnel into it, you 
will need to have them hand in their documents. And above all else, 
remember that if you find anything suspicious, contact your boss 
immediately. If you forget the password to lock the door, try and 
remember that it is a word that everyone is familiar with. Don't forget 
that once a new product is shipped, the password will be updated again. 
You can always enter the password from the terminal of the PC for

"Order sheet" 
The liquid medicine named VT-J98 is suitable to cultivate the NE-T type 
virus. Therefore, we will need to order additional quantities of it. 
U.E. Sixth Laboratory. 

16. Dario's Memo:

This was the hardest one to find. You have to backtrack all the way to 
the beginning, where a fat man hid himself in a big container. When you 
go back there, you will find his body and this file.

I can't help but wonder if anyone will read these words, but writing 
them will help me maintain my sanity if nothing else. After I've become 
a meal for those undead monsters, will the G.I.'s responsible for 
sealing off the town laugh upon discovering my corpse? So is this how 
it's supposed to end? I don't want to die, I'm just not ready..... My 
wife, daughter, mother.... My entire family has been killed. But none of 
that matters anymore. Right now, my life is the only important thing. 
That's all that matters. I never would have pictured my end to be like 
this. I had so much left to do. Rather than becoming a salesman, I 
should have tried my hand at being a novelist. It's what I've always 
wanted, but my mother would only tell me you have a long way to go. Why 
did I ever listen to her? But this looks like the end for the great 
Dario Rosso, novelist extraordinaire. Cut down before his prime. 

17. Operation Instruction:

Entrance Hall of the Clock Tower, with a dead body.

Order for UBCS Echo Team: 
Wipe out the downtown area of the infestation and then evacuate the 
remaining citizens to the clock tower. Among the citizens, remember to 
give priority to the employees of Umbrella's affiliates. Remember to 
stay alert because the infected have a high endurance rate and will 
strike without hesitation. 
Evacuation Procedure: 
1. Once the mission is complete, or when it becomes too impossible to 
accomplish, evacuate immediately. 
2. We'll deploy a helicopter that is waiting in the suburbs, to the yard 
in front of the clock tower. 
3. When you are ready for evacuation, ring the bell of the clock tower 
to signal the helicopter.

19. Mercenary's Pocketbook:

Clock Tower, with a dead mercenary's body.

September 26th 
It's only been three hours since the mission started, but the team is 
down to me and Campbell. The number of zombies if far greater than we 
expected. There is no hope left for this city. We have already injected 
the antibody for the virus, but I'm not sure that it will work. I don't 
know if I will survive..... 
September 27th 
We managed to reach the clock tower. Out of desperation we robbed some 
wounded members of their weapons and used the surviving citizens as 
decoys. We were taught to do this in order to survive in the 
battlefield, but I never enjoyed it. However, a girl showed up at the 
clock tower before me. She is one of the survivors. She looks just like 
my sister before she starved to death.... 
September 28th 
I wanted to evacuate as soon as possible, but the girl didn't. Her 
father insisted that he wouldn't leave this city where his beloved wife 
rest in peace. I really wanted to save the girl, but Campbell said, "All 
I care about is our lives." That's how I felt before, but now...... The 
clock tower has become a dangerous place and I don't want to make any 
more mistakes.

20. Director's Diary:

Raccoon Hospital, elevator room.

These patients suffer from gangrene and congestion of their blood at 
first. Then their mind slowly deteriorates. In the end, there is nothing 
left of their mind. when that happens even mercy billing seems 
pointless. After all, they are already dead... This disease is unlike 
anything I have ever witnessed. Once the patient's mind is gone, they 
become flesh hunger monsters and act like wild animals who are on some 
type of bloodlust. September 18th Another patient has been admitted to 
the hospital. He is showing symptoms of the first stages of the disease 
at this point, but... I haven't been able to sleep at all these past few 
days. I refuse to let these patients become "zombies". I am not just an 
ordinary citizen. I am a doctor. Even if I die, my clinical charts will 
contribute to finding a cure. September 26th We lost most of the doctors 
and staff during the battle against the "zombie" patients. It's 
impossible to maintain the hospital under these conditions. And, I know 
that it's too late for me. I am beginning to feel that same itch and 
hungry desire that all of my patients felt. It's too late for me....

Raccoon Hospital, Basement 3, near the Vaccine Machine.

Umbrella Medical Service 
North America Division 
Douglas Rover 
In order to activate the synthesizer to cultivate the vaccine, please 
follow the procedure as detailed below: 
1. Supply enough energy to the system. 
2. Set the medium base to the devise. When the device is ready, you can 
start mixing the vaccine medium. To mix the vaccine, you will need to 
control the five levers. This will cause the two gauges to increase or 
decrease. I you adjust the two gauges so that they stop at the center, 
the vaccine medium will then be produced automatically.

24. Written Order to the Supervisors:

Raccoon Park, near the Graveyard Key.

Mission requirements: Bravo 16 
1. Obtain and secure sample of all the information pertaining to this 
case. Observe and record combat data on the UBCS. 
2. Destroy all the evidence including the medical facility that has the 
medical treatment data. 
3. Check the guinea pig's ability to accomplish the mission. Once your 
mission is complete, evacuate the area. Remember that you must not help 
anyone who is not a supervisor, nor bring anything back that might be 
traced to where it belongs. 

25. Supervisor's Report:

Graveyard, transmissions room, over the table.

The endurance ability of the contaminated guinea pigs is truly 
incredible. Even when shot in a vital area, they can sometimes survive 
for several days without taking care of the wound. However, after 
prolonged exposure to the virus, the guinea pig's intelligence level 
decreases to that of an insect. Even though reviving the dead seems too 
disgusting, the virus may still be of use. If we inject the virus into 
our POWs and release them, they would return to their units and then 
turns into zombies. This plan may work well for us in the future. In 
certain areas, the virus seems to have caused the mutation of animals 
and plants. It may be difficult, but it'll make a good sample for the 
bio weapon development. I've heard that there is a giant alligator, but 
I have only encountered a giant creature moving under ground. I don't 
even want to imagine what creature spawned that monster. I encountered 
"Nemesis". If I didn't know about it, I'd have been contaminated and 
would have become one of them by now. If it is still walking around in 
the city, its mission is not yet over. S.T.A.R.S. members must be very 
tough since they have survived until this point. However, they cannot 
hold our forever..... 

26. Fax From the H.Q.:

Graveyard, transmissions room, on the blackboard.

Attention. The Raccoon City Project has been abandoned. Our political 
manoeuvring in the senate to delay their plans is now futile. All 
supervisors should evacuate immediately. The US Army is going to execute 
their plan tomorrow morning. The city will be obliterated at daybreak 
for sure. 

27. Manager's Diary:

Dead Factory, save room where you find the Facility Key.

April 25th 
Today is my birthday. I was transferred to this facility today. I am 
very happy because the work environment is very different from life in 
the university. 
May 14th 
The disposal system has been completed. Using a special kind of gas, it 
can decompress the cells of the guinea pigs. We have to try this out 
before beginning practical usage of the system, since it is not 100% 
stable yet. 
May 20th 
While I was checking the treatment room, the door shut, and I was locked 
inside. I couldn't get out for one hour. I guess even if you have the 
key card, it's useless when you are locked inside. 
June 7th 
The guinea pigs we have to dispose of are increasing. The system is not 
working smoothly. The laboratory staff doesn't listen to my opinions and 
I am getting extremely frustrated. 
July 16th 
We can't dispose of all the bodies and the quality of the liquid 
medicine is not good enough either. 
July 29th 
Though the functions of the system decreases, the number of the bodies 
we have dispose doesn't. The infection level has increased and the 
antibodies we are using is no match for the new mutation of the virus. 
Some of the workers have been infected by the disease. I have continued 
to work, but I always keep a gun with me. I must remember to save one 
bullet for me. I want to weep. I don't want to die here. I swear that 
I'll lose my mind if I imagine how painful the death will be..... 

28. Security Manual:

Dead Factory, save room where you find the Water Sample.

"Security for the Plant" 
Since this plant is a facility under the disguise of a deserted factory, 
civilians will sometimes enter. If this should occur, do not hesitate to 
shoot them. If they choose to surrender, arrest and then transfer them 
to the laboratory as new guinea pigs. You will be rewarded. 
"Maintenance of the device" 
This entire plant is controlled by an epidemic prevention system. When 
contamination is detected in the treatment room or decomposed specimen 
pool, the plant will automatically be locked down for isolation. In that 
case, you must follow the manual to unlock it. If the contamination is 
over the limit, the whole system will automatically lockdown. The, you 
must remain in the plant and wait for subsequent orders. Those who leave 
the facility without permission will suffer extreme consequences. 

29. Incinerator Manual:

In your "Last Escape", look for it on a wall.

The incinerator plant is one of the facilities that burns the disposable 
items which are sent from the laboratory. The incinerator burns the 
waste materials that cannot be decomposed at the treatment room. It also 
supplies electricity to the facility by a thermal power electricity 
generator. Part of the electricity is stored in the big battery 
installed in the facility's underground area. The electricity is used as 
an auxiliary power source. The auxiliary power circuit will be activated 
once the three "auxiliary circuit units" are properly placed in their 
sockets. In case the circuits are not connected automatically, a person 
can connect them manually to activate the system. 

30. Classified Photo File:

In your "Last Escape", look for it on the floor.

In my opinion, I feel that it's too early to use this, "Paracelsus 
Sword" in actual fighting. However, in order to acquire the g-virus that 
Umbrella has developed, it will be a great help to us. The power of the 
"Rail cannon" is satisfactory, but please note that it I still having a 
few remaining problems. Technology Division Colonel Franklin Hart.
