|This is what you will see when the application starts up. You typically click on "Pick Avatar" to pick your character. If you want to change sound settings, graphic resolutions, or key bindings, click on "Options".|
|This is what you will see when you click "Pick Avatar". The buttons on the right are the various characters with their heights in meters (and feet). Click one to pick your "skin". Then pick your speed (in meters per second). Modifying either your speed or stealth will affect the other.|
|This is what you will see when you click "Create Game". Pick a mission to start in, type in your name, make sure "Host Multiplayer" is checked, and press "Start Game!". You will need 3 players before the game can begin.|
|This is what you will see when you click "Join Game". To find an internet game, press "Query Master". To find a LAN game, press "Query LAN". Pick a server by clicking on it. You can refresh the status of this server by pressing "Refresh Server". Press "Join Game!" to join. If a game is in progress, you will be thrown into the world as a hider.|
|Popup||0 secs||Causes everybody, including decoys, to have 25 meters per second added to their "up" velocity. Little fires will light under everybody's rear-ends with a smoke trail rising from there. While this is an instantaneous powerup, you cannot use your next powerup for 2 seconds.|
|Slow Fog||30 secs||All hiders will have their speed reduced by 33%. This is cumulative with any Speed cube they may be using. The speed of seekers is unmodified.|
|Thermo||20 secs||A thermometer will appear. If you are more than 100 meters from any hider, the thermometer will be empty of "mercury". As you get closer, the bar will fill and will change colors from blue to red. Once you are within 15 meters, the bar will be full.|
|Tractor Beam||0 secs||This will lock onto a hider (if you hit them in your crosshair) and pull them in your direction. While this is an instantaneous powerup, you cannot use your next powerup for 2 seconds.|
|Decoy||0 secs||As soon as the space you currently occupy is empty, an exact duplicate of yourself is dropped. It laughs at your same rate. When a tagger touches this decoy, they will be stunned for 8 seconds and the decoy will be removed from the world. While this is an instantaneous powerup, you cannot use your next powerup for 2 seconds.|
|Invisible||11 secs||Makes you invisible. While invisible, your stealth doubled, but your speed is halved. The last second of your time will spent de-cloaking where a slightly white glow will surround your body.|
|Stealth||12.5 secs||Increases your stealth by 9 times reducing both footprints and your laughing rate.|
|Teleport||0 secs||Teleports you to a semi-random location around the map. All maps have at least 2 teleport destinations. While this is an instantaneous powerup, you cannot use your next powerup for 2 seconds.|
|Speed||10 secs||Your speed is increased by 33%. This is cumulative with the Slow Fog.|
|Third Eye||10 secs||When you use this, the closest target of your "opposite" type will be picked (a seeker if you are a hider, and vice versa). A smaller screen will appear in the lower right corner, and it will show everything they see.|
|The Chat Window, located in the upper left hand corner of the screen, is where all chat messages and messages from the game will appear. Keep a frequent eye on this. To cycle between its there sizes, press [P].|
|When you wish to chat to others, press your [T] key. A window will appear where you can type your message. Press [Enter] to send it.|
|The Holder, located in the upper right hand corner of the screen, is where your current powerup is displayed.|
|When you walk over a powerup, a PopupCube in this case, the icon will appear in this box. When you press your Left Mouse Button [LMB], this powerup will become activated.|
|Once the powerup is activated, a Countdown Bar will appear. While this is counting down, you may acquire another powerup but may not use it.|
|If you are it, there will be a Crosshair in the center of your screen. While it has a box around it, you can press the [E] key to tag somebody at a distance (approximately 5 meters away).|
|Once you've pressed this key, it will turn into a Crosshair with the box around it. This means that the [E] key for tagging is currently unavailable. This lasts approximately 5 seconds. Note that you can still run into hiders to tag them.|
|Also as a tagger, you will have access to the Gigometer (pronounced gig-ahm-iter), located in the lower left hand corner of the screen. You can hear gigglers from approximately 60 meters away. When they are within 50 meters, a line will appear showing the direction of the giggle. If you are stationary and rotate left and right, you can approximate their location. If you move, this line becomes inaccurate. Also, if the person is higher than you, the line appears yellow. If they are lower than you, the line appears cyan. Otherwise the line is green. If they are within 5 meters, a square of the appropriate color will appear in the middle of the meter.|
|If you are a hider, you will have access to the GiggleMeter, also located in the lower left hand corner of the screen. This will fill up at a rate which is a function of your stealth and how long you have stayed still. Once it has filled, you will giggle and everybody within 60 meters will hear you.|
|This is the ThirdEye box. If you are a hider, the ThirdEye powerup finds the nearest seeker. If you are a seeker, this powerup finds the nearest hider. For the next 8 seconds, you will see from this person's eyes in this box.|
|As a hider, you have access to the ThermoCube powerup. When used, the image to the far left will appear. As you move around, the bar in the thermometer will raise and lower depending upon your proximity to the nearest hider. It is blue at the bottom when you are "cold" (as seen in the middle image) and goes through purple when you are "warm" (as seen in the right image), and finally goes to red when you are "hot".|
|If you see this icon, located near the top right hand side of the screen, you are currently experiencing lag. This is measured as time since the last server update. This means that if the server crashes, you will often see this. If it lasts more than 3 or 4 seconds, you can be certain that the server is no longer running.|
The information contained within this section may be out of date. Use it as a guide on how to play, not as a detailed map of each world.
Each world has its own probabilities for powerups. The probabilities were picked with three things in mind. First, how useful are they in this world. A popup is worthless in a small building. Second, how hard is it to catch hiders. If it is very hard, the powerups favor the seekers. Third, how well does it fit the theme. The graveyard, for example, favors the paranormal powerups of Third Eye, Invisibility, and Slow Fog.
Finally, most of these images can be clicked on to get a larger, more clear image. I recommend you use these larger images to see details that might be missing in the smaller images.
This is the best training world. It has areas for fast players and areas for stealthy players.
If you can keep your eyes open and are fast, the forest and hill are great areas to hide around. For stealthy characters, you can almost always lose somebody in the Double Maze.
You start out on the CD (or DVD) tray. Every world has an invisible border around areas where you think you can escape. The window on the case will bounce you back if you try to walk or jump through it.
Once inside, you can jump around from card to card and over the cables. There are chips on the motherboard (the back wall) which, with enough experimentation, you can get onto.
You appear outside, but enter a door near the bottom right-hand side of this picture. It's easy to hide in this maze. There are ramps near the red-light areas which will take you to the second level.
Once on the second level, you won't find many powerups. There is one area, though, that has a half-dozen powerups... more than enough to take your pick and stay safe.
You enter on the outside of the funhouse. Like all worlds, you cannot escape even though it looks like you can.
You enter this world at the bottom right of this image. You do not need to jump on the pad to make it bounce you around.
The tunnels are great to hide in because seekers tend to overlook this when running around.
There are two entrances to the Glass Wall Maze portion of this world.
The Glass Wall Maze is gridded with lights. You only need to run from light to an adjacent light. If you cannot get between them, there is a glass wall there.
This is the schematic of the glass wall maze. Use this to learn the maze and to get through efficiently.
This world is best for fast people. There are lots of areas to hide in, so just experiment.
The area near the Haunted Forest and behind the masoleum does not have powerups. There are a lot of areas to hide, but make sure you are prepared before you enter this area.
This is simply a collection of abandoned buildings. You cannot leave the grassy areas in the desert area. Some buildings have escape routes that allow you to get away from seekers.
