Gawsh, quite a few pushy opinions here o-o And I may not have much room to advise, but.. going straight to the location, without looking behind you or anything makes him appear less for me. So kinda like what was said, how if you shake the camera around too much he's so much more likely to appear xD not staying in one place for too long prolly keeps you much safer too. The flashlight dying is what got me last time.. so maybe if you know the map well enough, go to the first location with it off? Oh, and I turn the flashlight off when I go to the bathrooms, he hasn't appeared on me yet with that tactic but it may just be luck and it somehow makes me panic less. owo" hate the bathrooms.. wait.. are they really bathrooms? I don't see any toilets o-o.. Also, Eternal darkness was an amazing horror game ;w; I never had the guts to play it though. But it looked so good when my brother did. o-o
Ironically enough, I never seen him in the bathrooms before I started turning my flashlight off. Well, I guess I'll try it again with a cleaner attempt of a straight forward route after my finals are done.
Hmm.. Ohgawsh, I hope he never does that to me ;w; it already startled me enough when I cam across him in there with my flashlight on. xD just do whatever works for you though. In the end, it's a bunch of trial and error then eventually success o-o I think..
I played it for, like 20 minutes before I got bored. If you absolutely must know how to beat it, though, Slenderman "resets" every time his line of sight is broken, so circling around trees and the like will be helpful.
I understand you dilemma and I've been there once. I only had one note in one game and Slenderman kept chasing after me so quickly. Maybe you ran out of luck, or were running around in circles without noticing it? o.o
Get someone who can watch as you play, preferably a person who's easily scared. It won't help the gameplay but hey, it'll be funny once you get trapped and Slenderman appears in front of you.
Do you look around a lot? I got tired about the 3rd time I played, but it was enough time for me to notice that if I keep moving the camera everywhere, Slenderman appears. If you keep walking looking in front of you, you'll be ok. And when you're getting more notes, then there, the more notes you have, the more chances you have of slenderman appearing. When my lil bro wanted to know how slenderman looked like, I started the game, I shaked the mouse everywhere to move the camera, and in a matter of seconds slenderman appeared.
I know that there's a trick where you can trap him by looking at him with an object blocking your view, but I usually don't have to resort to that until like five notes. Otherwise, I try not to look around a lot. I guess it's a little understandable with the bathrooms since I have to look around, but I don't think I've ever encountered him in there under three notes until today. Well, I may just quit too. Beating it would be cool, but it isn't really that important.
I know; I don't really consider jump scares to be genuinely scary either (that's why I can actually play the game). I guess its just for the bragging rights. I'll probably never play it again once I beat it
