Create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "options.ini" file in the game folder. Add the following line to the file if it does not exist, or edit the existing line to match:
SET DX_CONFIG_BULLET 100
This sets the amount of ammunition you get when you pick it up. Usually, the game can set it to a maximum of x3.
Additional riddle difficulty
Beat the game under the easy, normal, and hard riddle difficulty settings. Select the hard riddle difficulty again and begin a new game with a new combination of riddles.
Beat the game once with the Leave ending (where James and Laura leave the town), then complete it again with the Rebirth ending (where James is going to revive Mary). Start the game again and a Blue Gem should appear in the bathroom where you start. Use the Blue Gem at the evil hospital garden, the dock (before you get on the boat), and room 312 before the intermission sequence. After using it in room 312, the UFO ending will begin.
Unlock all five endings, then start a new game. All signs will now be revealed.
Beat the game under the normal difficulty and normal riddle difficulty settings. Start a new game to find the Chain Saw among logs before the cemetery.
To get the Chain Saw easier, complete the game under the easy difficulty and easy riddle difficulty settings. Get the "leaving" ending (where he leaves the town with the girl). The Chain Saw will be located in the section just after the first graveyard. You will hear it, and it will be sawing away on some logs.
To view the sixth secret joke ending, use the Blue Gem at Alternate Brook Haven Hospital's garden, the dock before getting on the boat), and room 312 in the Lakeview Hotel. Once you use it in room 312, the game will end and the joke ending will appear.
When you encounter an enemy, try and get fairly close to it. When it attacks, quickly side step out of the way. Then, face the enemy and attack it with the board with a nail in it. Most of the early enemies you encounter have a slow reaction time after they attack and can easily be taken down with the board and nail. :Note: This is only recommended for use with those types of enemies and should not be used when facing later enemies.
To easily kill a normal monster, shoot it until it falls down, then run up and press Action. James will kick or step on the monster and it will die.
Defeating Pyramid Heads
Use the following trick to avoid using any ammo or health while you face the Pyramid Head in the apartment. When you go into the staircase on the second floor, immediately go to the right (or left if the camera is facing on James). Dodge around the Pyramid Head until you get to the wall. Wait until he jumps down the staircase filled with water, then he is gone until the hospital.
In the first battle, equip your rifle and as soon as you get the chance, shoot him four times. He will run away. Follow him into the next room. Get far away from him and just keep shooting until he dies. If he gets in close, run away and shoot him. If done correctly, he should be locked in between shots and you will not get hit.
Use the following trick to kill Eddie with one or two hits. This works for both rounds with Eddie. Get next to him, take out the Great Knife and slice away. If you hit him, he should die in one hit. If not, attack him again. After he gets hit, blood flies everywhere.
