Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 03:29 PM) Ok, playing with headphones is definitely superior
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 03:31 PM) I knew the music in Rei's house changed after Miku's chapters start but I never noticed it has these little bumps and rustles that make it sound like something's moving in the house
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 05:41 PM) also there is more ghost talk during Kei's phone call!
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 05:41 PM) i couldn't hear most of it, though, I need to listen again
Hex : (08 November 2017 - 06:12 PM) Yesss, headphones.  I think you can hear doors being closed in Rei's house too.
Hex : (09 November 2017 - 01:03 PM) Damn, I didn't know they were closing down the miiverse until too late.  My screenshots.  :(
midwinter : (09 November 2017 - 01:40 PM) Argh, no backups? That sucks :(
Hex : (09 November 2017 - 01:48 PM) On the bright side, I still have an album full of pretty scenery and Hisoka looking confused.
AnimalLover4... : (10 November 2017 - 05:59 AM) Nintendo shouldn't have shut down Miiverse.
AnimalLover4... : (10 November 2017 - 05:59 AM) People loved it.
AnimalLover4... : (10 November 2017 - 05:59 AM) And they should have incorporated it onto the Switch.
Hex : (12 November 2017 - 12:51 AM) Finally finished TEW2, t'was excellent.
GreekShadow : (12 November 2017 - 05:14 AM) I'm glad you enjoed it Hex!How was it comparing to the first one though(,which i personally disliked)?
Hex : (12 November 2017 - 12:11 PM) I've only played the first for a few hours (didn't like it much either), but it was a big improvement.  The gameplay is fun, the stealth works a lot better, the open world map isn't too big but there's sidequests (one with a cool ghost lady!) and some interesting things to do.
Hex : (12 November 2017 - 12:17 PM) I was really impressed with the story since it was one of the things that put me off the first. The last 20 minutes were so good, definitely one of the best endings I've seen in awhile.
Daz Hinasaki : (12 November 2017 - 07:17 PM) Hey guys I'm finishing fatal frame 1 on my twitch channel tonight! :) love you to join me https://www.twitch.tv/chunzbunz
GreekShadow : (13 November 2017 - 05:36 AM) oh sounds cool thank you hex!And for me also the story of the first one put me off,glad the second one is better
Hex : (16 November 2017 - 12:01 PM) TIL: ghost marriage is actually practiced in China.   :staffsan:
Rheo : (16 November 2017 - 12:13 PM) O_O
Rheo : (16 November 2017 - 12:13 PM) oh yeah there's a local movie here called The Ghost Bride and the actress playing that is half-Chinese

I was inspired by midwinter to see if anyone would be up for a forum challenge?  The requirements to encounter the Hand From Floor ghost are quite a slog, but I've made an award and will give rep to anyone who goes to the trouble!  I thought experiencing something for the first time in a game we're all familiar with could be fun, even if we've already seen it.   :icon_tengai:

There won't be any rules or deadlines, feel free to join in if you've faced it before (maybe we could decide a name for him?), other than providing a picture to show us your findings.  Instructions to find the ghost below:

Sounds fun, moreover I've never encountered it. It seems like a very rare random ghost encounter, there are no specific rules either. I believe it's called 「床から伸びる手」 in Japanese version of FF1, and it roughly translates as 'stretched hand (that came) out from the floor'. I'll check Japanese PS2 version later today (can't play in broad daylight) and probably will do the same with EU version next week.

 

There is actually an another instruction video on niconico

I'm sorry for double post, I'm sure that someone could merge it in one.

 

I finally got it (it's called 'Hands from Floor'). Luckily, I didn't have to play too far from the beginning. You can encounter it during 1st Night, just proceed to Burial Room and wait there for random ghosts. After hordes of Broken Necks, Bound Men and Female Heads (Floating Woman will most likely swing by, too) this ghost hand will reveal itself, but it won't rush at you like other ghosts. Instead, this hand will be lying silently in wait for Miku to step on it, so it could get a nice excuse to grab Miku's leg. After Miku is done shaking it off, ghost hand will try to get away, and this is the exact moment when you should shoot it. For me it spawned here.

 

Here it is (don't mind the time, it's crazy, because I played it on emulator)

HA! Finally got it. I thought I'd screwed up somewhere, because I kept hearing the music but could never find it. And at one point the music cut out and was replaced with something like a mosquito whine that rose in pitch as I got closer to where I assume the hand must have been lurking. I never managed to get it to grab me, so I used louischou's technique of waiting for it to appear in the Doll Room and then snapping it through the hole in the floor.

 

All of which is beside the point. Here is the hand ghost and I claim my five pounds:

Sorry for the crappy phone pic, and sorry it's taken me so long, I kept forgetting! Also, I'm not sure why my PS2 thinks it's 5th July. >_>

It never spawns in the same place. I tried to catch it the other day and I found it in that place (Burial Room) only after several attempts. By attempts I mean this really freaky sound alerting player that hand is nearby.

 

Could you tell me how many random ghosts have you fought to get to ghost hand? I'm starting to think that 'random' is not the most correct word to describe those encounters with ghosts. In my case they always come out in specific order and ghost hand is always a 14th ghost:

  1. bound man
  2. broken neck
  3. female head
  4. broken neck
  5. broken neck
  6. bound man
  7. female head
  8. floating woman
  9. bound man
  10. female head
  11. bound man
  12. bound man
  13. female head
  14. hands from floor

That's weird, I was making a tally as I fought them, but I only fought twelve and Hand from Floor was the thirteenth. I can't remember what order they came in, though.

I have faced the only hand that isn't annoying!

I was doing redoing my walkthrough I did of the game anyway,(good way to get lots of points on a fresh new game!) so I decided to face the hand too.

Weirdly enough, I had to keep changing rooms and could never find it. Until I went into the doll room.
