6. Manuscript Pages
There are a total of 106 Manuscript Pages in the game. Fifteen of them are only available during your Nightmare difficulty playthrough(s). In the game you will often find pages not in the order as they are displayed in the "Manuscript" menu (press Start while you play to access this menu, among other ones). The order of the manuscripts in this page will be the "official order" displayed in the game, and not the chronological order as you find them. For the chronological order, please refer to the Story walkthrough page. Their location will also be listed here, but the Story Walkthrough page will have the exact point in time in the game when you should get the page.
This page should mainly be used as a checklist to find pages you might have missed, searching by name. You can also use the CTRL+F function of your browser, and then either searching this page to find the corresponding manuscript page, or typing in the correct "page ID" in the Story walkthrough page, to find them. The ID is a couple of numbers, such as "1.7": the first number is the episode, while the second number (after the dot) is the official position of the manuscript in the list. Say you know you're missing the seventh manuscript of Episode One, it will be enough to type "1.7" in your browser search function (CTRL+F, again) to find it in the story walkthrough page. Remember also that in-game there will be always 10 manuscript pages displayed at once; this helps you count them faster to find the "ID"s.
Please be aware that this page will also contain the titles of the manuscripts, which are often story-related. In other words, be aware of spoilers in each of the next 106 lines.
