    The guide is finished. Everything than needs to be included is in. Everything

    Call me a liar, here's an update! I have added to the introduction and the

    A pretty short time between these updates. I have been through the entire FAQ
    and added some extra bits of info. I'm petty like that. I really want this 
    guide to be A1, as I'm very proud of it. That's about all. File size is 
    around 139kb, a whole 1kb update. All the chapters that need to be included
    are in and very much complete. I suppose there is the possibility of some
    Frequently Asked Questions but this is an old game and I'm not expecting a 
    ton of emails about it. The board is still relatively active though, so I'll
    keep an eye out.

    '-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-='
    
    Hello and welcome to my Luigi's Mansion guide. Your not-so favourite author
    is back. It's been a while since I have written a guide, which always seems to
    be the way. Usually I don't have time to write a guide and I planned not to
    write any more. But now I've caught the bug again stand by for a mini
    avalanche. I love writing guides, so I'm going to keep at it as long as I
    can. Thanks to all my readers out there, your emails have been great. 
    
    What is Luigi's Mansion then? Well, it is the first game the Luigi has starred
    in. All on his very lonesome. At the time of release I believe this was seen
    as a very significant thing. Luigi hasn't been granted his own game since
    this so this may well be only one. Poor Luigi.
    
    This is how the guide is going to play out. Below you will find the story
    which I shamelessly lifted from the game's manual. The Game Controls section
    is pretty self-explanatory (i.e. it tells you what buttons to press). After
    that the GameBoy Horror and the Catching Ghosts sections contain everything
    that you will need to know about how to play the game. The Characters chapter
    is rather short but will tell you about the very few characters there are in
    Luigi's Mansion.
    
    Finally after you have sifted through all that, you get to the walkthrough.
    Home of the information that 99% of people will use this guide for. The guide
    basically gives you through a room by room account of what needs to be done.
    I am very proud of this walkthrough part of the guide, so I hope that you make
    use of it. At the end of the walkthrough part you will find information on the
    Hidden Mansion and all is revealed about the value of money. Great. The final
    few sections will detail how to find all the Cash Ghosts, Golden Mice, cash
    plants and Boos. Actually that's a lie. I told you how to get the Boo in the
    main body of the guide, the bit at the end is just a brief checklist for those
    who are missing one or two Boos. There is also an enemies guide at the back,
    if your having any particular trouble with a ghosty or a ghouly. Then there's
    the Credits chapter dedicated to the people I love. The FAQ is wrapped up with
    the Contact Information section.
    
    There are a few of things that you won't find in this guide. First of all,
    the FAQ isn't concerned with finding every last bit of money. Two reasons for
    this. The first is that the collection of money is optional and doesn't really
    count for much, least of all does it stop you completing the game. The second
    reason is that the money appears in random places each time. I can't give you
    an exact guide if I wanted to. Another thing that you won't find is a Hidden
    Mansion guide. Producing one and sticking it in here would be a cheap and
    deplorable move. This would double the size of the guide, giving me KB for
    GameFAQs which I have barely earned. That said there is a Hidden Mansion 
    section that will give a bit of information on the Hidden Mansion. Finally
    you won't find an items guide. The items in Luigi's Mansion are fairly few
    and pretty much self-explanatory, so why waste words?
    
    Well that's it peeps, intro over. Incidentally, I don't really like to go on 
    about myself in an "About The Author" section, but if you want to see more
    of my work follow this link-

    |~4~                                 STORY                             [STOY]|
    '-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-='
    
    Taken from the manual:
    
    One day, Luigi received an unexpected message: You've won a huge mansion!
    Naturally, He got very excited and called his brother, Mario. "Mario? It's me,
    Luigi. I won myself a big mansion! Meet me there and we'll celebrate, what do
    you say?" Luigi tried to follow the map to his new mansion, but the night was
    dark, and he became hopelessly lost in an eerie forest along the way. Finally,
    he came upon a gloomy mansion on the edge of the woods. According to the map,
    this mansion seemed to be the one Luigi was looking for. As soon as Luigi set
    foot in the mansion, he started to feel nervous. Mario, who should have
    arrived first, was nowhere to be seen. Not only that, but there were ghosts
    in the mansion! Suddenly, a ghost lunged at Luigi! "Mario! Help meee!" That's
    when a strange old man with a vacuum cleaner on his back appeared out of
    nowhere! This strange fellow managed to rescue Luigi from the ghosts, then
    the two of them escaped... It just so happened that the old man, Professor
    Elvin Gadd, who lived near the house, was researching his favourite subject,
    ghosts. Luigi told Professor E. Gadd that his brother Mario was missing, so
    the Professor decided to give Luigi two inventions that would help him search
    for his brother. Luigi's not exactly known for his bravery. Can he get rid of
    all of the prank-loving ghosts and find Mario?

    |~6~                             GAMEBOY HORROR                        [GBHR]|
    '-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-='
    
    The GameBoy Horror is a very important device. Press X and you will enter
    search mode. This allows you to look for clues and things of interest around
    the mansion. Press Y and you can view the floor maps of the mansion. This is
    useful when navigating around the mansion. Rooms that you have the keys for
    are also marked on the map. In addition to this you can see the rooms which
    you have visited and the rooms which you have lit up. Press Z and this will
    show your item list. This is basically a run down of everything that you have
    collected in the game.
    
    There are a number of "trap doors" to be found in Luigi's Mansion. These doors
    will injure Luigi and take cash. It goes without saying, you need to avoid
    these. The best method is to check the GameBoy Horror. Real doors will be
    shown on the floor maps whilst the trap doors won't. Take care.
    
    If you search using X, directly into a mirror you will be transported back to
    the foyer. This is now only a nice little shortcut but in some rooms, it is a
    necessity.
    
    The GameBoy Horror has one more feature. The Boo Radar. Enter a room that
    contains a Boo or a Boo-related item and it will flash and beep. This is 
    very helpful when tracking down Boos. More on this in the next chapter.

    |~7~                            CATCHING GHOSTS                        [CTGH]|
    '-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-='
    
    In this section I will tell you all that you need to know about catching
    ghosts. This includes you normal run of the mill ghosts, gallery ghosts,
    elemental ghosts and Boos. Different methods and techniques need to be used
    for different ghosts, for example you won't be able to catch a gallery ghost
    in the same way you would catch an elemental ghost. Read on and all shall be
    revealed...

    |                                   GHOSTS                                   |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Catching an average run of the mill ghost is pretty simple. First you will 
    need to stun them with your flashlight. This will reveal their heart and the
    ghost will remain stunned for a couple of seconds. Whilst it is stunned use
    the Poltergust 3000 to suck them up. Ghosts have varying HPs. You need to
    bring this HP down to 0 to catch the ghost. Whilst the ghost is being sucked
    with the Poltergust 3000 tilt the C stick in the opposite direction to the 
    ghost. This will cause the HP of the ghost to decline quicker. Once the HP
    reaches 0 the ghost will be sucked into the Poltergust 3000 and caught.
    
    A Grabber; this ghost with sneak up from behind and then grab Luigi. This
    wall sap cash and health. To shake it off, waggle the C stick. Sometimes you
    cannot see these ghosts. You need to look for their reflections, their
    shadows, or puffs of smoke when they appear. To catch them you need only stun
    them and then suck them up.
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    |                                 0HP GHOSTS                                 |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    These ghosts, like the name suggests, have 0HP. There are a few different
    types of ghost here. First there are the Bat, the Flying Fish and the Mice.
    You will not need to stun these with the flashlight, just vacuum them up. Next
    there are two types of Yellow Ghost. The first is just like an Orange Ghost
    with 0HP. Stun it and suck it up. The next is the Bowling Ghost. This ghost
    will throw a bowling ball down the hallway in an attempt to hit you. Stun him,
    then suck him up. Another type of ghost is to one that drops from the ceiling.
    There are two of these ghosts. The first is the White Hanger. This is a large
    white ghost. He will try and surprise you whilst walking past. Watch out for
    his punch. The next is the Purple Bomber. This guy will also drop from the
    ceiling. He will then throw a bomb at you. Avoid the bomb, then stun it with
    the flashlight, before sucking him up.
    
    The final 0HP ghost is the Exploder. This is the only ghost in the mansion
    that cannot be captured. Instead they will explode on their own, or if you
    get too close. Their explosions are about the same force as a bomb. In 
    appearance this ghost is just a tiny blob floating around. The best thing is
    to avoid these when ever possible.

    |                               GALLERY GHOSTS                               |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Gallery ghosts are not as easy to catch as regular ghosts. You can't stun
    them with flashlight and just suck them up. It usually takes a bit more brain
    power than that. The first thing that you should do is use the X button to
    search for clues. Click on the ghost's heart and on different objects around
    the room. No doubt there is something that needs affecting to get the ghost
    to show their heart. For example, to catch Lydia, you need to open the 
    curtain and cause a draft in the room. Lydia's heart will now be visible 
    whilst she shuts the curtain. Whilst the heart is visible, you can suck up
    the ghost with the Poltergust 3000. There are various different things that
    you will need to do to catch each Gallery Ghost.
    
    Whilst you are sucking up the Gallery Ghosts, they will drop one of two
    things. The first thing that a ghost may drop is a Poisonous Mushroom. Avoid
    these like the plague. They will shrink Luigi and break the connection that
    you have with the ghost. While he is shrunk, Luigi won't be able to use the
    Poltergust 3000. The other things that the ghosts will drop are pearls. There
    are three sizes of pearl; small, medium and large. The more HP that you suck
    in one go, without the connection being broken, the larger the pearls will be.
    These pearls will determine the colour of the picture frames that you will
    achieve for each ghost. Large pearls will get you a gold, medium, a silver
    and small, a bronze. You can see how well you did by viewing the portraits in
    the Gallery. All Gallery Ghosts (with a couple of exceptions) will have 100HP.

    |                                    BOOS                                    |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Boos are another side-quest in the game. There are 50 of these bad boys to
    catch. At certain points in the game, you will need to have caught a certain
    number of Boos to be allowed to proceed. For example you need 20 Boos to be
    allowed to access to the Balcony.
    
    Boos can only be found in lightened rooms. You will need to search them out.
    You can do this with the help of the Boo Radar. The radar will flash and
    beep when it senses a Boo or a Boo-item in the room. This is an extremely
    helpful device. Whilst you are searching for a Boo, often the said Boo will
    leave a trick or a trap for you. This can either mean a bomb or a ball. A ball
    is the kinder of the two. It is simply a rubber ball with the face of a Boo. I
    serves no real purpose. However, bombs are nasty. These are the same bombs
    that Purple Bombers use. If you find one, get out of the way quick.
    
    Once you have found a Boo, it will announce its name and a catchphrase. You
    then need to catch it before it escapes. Different Boos have different HP.
    The first ones that you find will be low, around 30HP. Later in the game this
    can increase to 300HP. Once the Boo is out in the open use the Poltergust 3000
    to suck it up. You do not need to stun a Boo, as it will already be light in
    the room. Simply suck. Waggle the C-stick if you find this helps. Catching a
    Boo can be very difficult at times. Often they will dive at you, leaving you
    on the floor whilst they make their escape.
    
    A Boo will attempt to escape once you have revealed it. This means floating
    through one of the walls in the room. You need to stop this is possible, to
    save yourself running around. Try and suck the Boo back inside, or stand 
    between the Boo and the wall it tries to escape into, thus forcing it the
    other way. A Boo will only be able to escape to another room, so it will not
    go through walls that aren't joined to other rooms. Bear this in mind whilst
    attempting to capture a Boo. In addition to this a Boo will never leave the
    floor which it is on. It can move to other rooms on that floor, but it won't
    shift the level that it is on.
    
    If a Boo does escape there are a couple of things that you can do. Follow it
    into the room or hallway to which it escaped. If you are quick enough the Boo
    will still be floating in mid-air waiting for you. Sometimes this just isn't
    possible. In these situations you will have to search the Boo out again. Go
    into each room on the floor and see if the Boo-Radar goes off. This will help
    you track it down. However, there is an easier method than this. Leave the
    mansion and the Boo will be back in the same place it was originally.
    
    After you have caught a Boo, Gadd will offer to save your game.

    |                              ELEMENTAL GHOSTS                              |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    There are 3 types of Elemental Ghosts in the mansion. Fire, Ice and Water.
    These cannot merely be stunned and then caught with the Poltergust 3000. You
    first need to use an element on them. The opposite element to the type of
    ghost that it is. Here is an explanation.
    
    Versus a Fire Element Ghost use the Water Element.
    Versus a Water Element Ghost use the Ice Element.
    Versus an Ice Element Ghost use the Fire Element.
    
    Elements can be found all around the mansion. Fire Element can be found in
    fires and candles. Ice is found in ice buckets and fridges. Water Element is
    found in sinks and taps.
    
    To defeat an Elemental Ghost use the required element. You do not need to 
    take any HP from the ghost, just as long as you hit it. You can take HP if
    you like but I find this a waste of element. Once you have hit the ghost
    with the element use the flashlight to stun the ghost and then suck it up in
    the normal way.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Cash Ghosts are not really an enemy. They can be found in certain places, but
    only in dark rooms. Once you have uncovered them they will zip around the
    room rapidly. You need to stun and capture it before it escapes. If you do
    manage to catch it, it will give up a huge pile of cash. Be warned though,
    each ghost will only appear once. After it has gone, then it's gone. You may
    want to save your game before going after one of these.

    Here we are. I would assume that this is the part that 99% of readers will
    use. Before we start though I would like to bring something to your attention.
    After playing this game through numerous times I have found that the treasure
    isn't always found in the same place. The main piles of cash and such are
    the same, but the "odd change" seems to be a bit random. Due to this I would
    recommend that you search everywhere as soon as you have finished a room.
    This includes drawers, cupboards, light fittings, cabinets, hat stands.
    Everywhere. This way you won't miss anything. Finding all the cash is not
    the purpose of this guide, so you won't find every last bit of treasure
    described in the guide. I'll leave that to you. After that mini-lecture let
    the show begin.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    As the game starts you will find yourself in the foyer. In front of you is
    a flashing door which is covered in vines. You can't go in there right now.
    Instead head up the stairs and try the double doors at the top. Also
    locked. Go back down the stairs and a short cut scene will play out. A 
    key will float in mid-air and then drop to the floor. An orange blur will
    rise from the floor and head through the double doors at the top of the
    stairs. Spooky. Go and pick up the PARLOUR KEY and then follow the blur
    through the upstairs door.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Another cut scene will ensue. A short old guy will run around madly trying
    to suck up the orange "blur" with a vacuum cleaner. The "blur" turns out
    to be a ghost, surprise, surprise. After failing in his attempt to catch
    the ghost, the man will introduce himself as Professor Elvin Gadd. Right
    after this you will both be ambushed by 3 more Orange Ghosts. Gadd will
    take you back to his lab.
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Back at the lab Gadd will briefly touch upon the story as to why you are
    here. He will also tell you that "a man in a red hat" went into the 
    mansion a short while ago. Gadd will then offer to train you up. Follow
    the directions that Gadd will give you to complete your training. In this
    area you will receive GameBoy Horror and the Poltergust 3000. Once you are
    done with the training, Gadd will offer to take you to the Gallery. Go and
    have a look around. It's pretty much empty at the moment, but this is where
    the Gallery Ghost portraits will appear. Once you have had a good look, head
    back to the mansion.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Back in the Foyer, talk to the weeping Toad. He will offer to save your
    game for you. He will also turn on the lights in the Foyer. Each time that
    a room is completely free of ghosts the lights will come on. There is a 
    brief exception to this sometime in Area 4 but let's not worry about that
    for now. Once you are done with Toad, head straight up the stairs and go
    into the Parlour, where you found Gadd. 
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    |                                   PARLOUR                                  |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    The first thing to do in this room is to collect the 75,000G in coins 
    which is scattered around. Next go over to the cabinet in the middle of the
    back wall. Blow out the candles that are sat on the cabinet. This will
    provoke a reaction from the ghosts. After a brief bout of taunting, they
    will reveal themselves. There are 3 Orange Ghosts to deal with here each
    with 10 HP. Try and stun and suck them up all at the same time. However,
    you may have to deal with them one by one until you have had more practice.
    If you are struggling, remember what you learned in training.
    
    Once you  have defeated all the ghosts, the lights will come on and a small
    chest will appear in the centre of the room. In the chest you will find the
    ANTEROOM KEY. The location of the Anteroom is marked with a key on the
    GameBoy Horror. Before leaving the room search the cabinets around the 
    room and collect the cash from in here. You may also find something in the
    light fitting. Go through the door on the right of the room.
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    |                                  ANTEROOM                                  |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    In here you will be completely in the dark again. The ghosts in this room
    will appear without provocation, unlike the ghosts in the Parlour. There
    are 4 Orange Ghosts in this room and 2 Pink Ghosts. You will not have dealt
    with the Pink Ghosts before. These have 20HP compared with the 10HP of the
    Orange Ghosts. The ghosts will appear singly at first but will then start
    to appear in multiples. 
    
    Once you have caught all the ghosts the lights will come on. Search all the
    vases in the room to earn some cash and health. Use the Poltergust 3000 on
    the lights and a wad of notes will drop. Collect these up and leave the
    room via the door on the left.
    
    
    .----------------------------------------------------------------------------.
    |                                WARDROBE ROOM                               |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    As in the Anteroom, the ghosts in this room will appear without you 
    anything. In this room you will come across 3 Orange Ghosts and 2 Green
    Ghosts. The Green Ghosts have 40HP and they will drop banana skins. If
    you step on the skins, Luigi will inevitably slip, causing the connection
    between the Poltergust 3000 and the ghost to be broken. You can actually 
    suck up the banana skins to get them out of your way. Once you have
    caught all these ghosts, the lights won't come on. Search the wardrobe on
    the right. In here you will find a Cash Ghost. Cash Ghosts are extremely
    quick but if you manage to catch one they will give up a lot of cash. 
    These will only appear in darkened rooms. More importantly each one of 
    these will only appear once. If you miss it then it won't reappear. Make
    sure that you are prepared or alternatively you could save your game 
    before attempting to catch one. Toad is through a door just to the left
    so this may be convenient for you.
    
    With the room still in dark, search the wardrobe on the left to reveal 
    the final Orange Ghost. Catch it and the lights will come on. The 2F
    HALLWAY KEY will appear on top of the rack of clothes. Use the Poltergust
    3000 to get it. Search the final wardrobe for cash as well as the hat
    stand and the lights Then head back to the top of the staircase in the
    Foyer.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    On the 2F landing search for the cash that is scattered around. Next head
    over to the left hand side of the landing. Here is the door to the 2F 
    Hallway. Before you go through Gadd will contact you on the GameBoy Horror.
    He will warn you that the spirits through this door are stronger than the
    ones that you have encountered so far. Beyond this door you will find your
    first Gallery Ghosts. He will then go on to explain about Gallery Ghosts.
    
    You cannot get a Gallery Ghost to show their heart just by stunning them.
    Use the X button to search for clues as to how to get them to reveal their
    heart. Once you have read this go through the door.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Once you are in here collect up the coins in front of you. However DON'T go
    through the door that it leads to. This is a trap. If you open the door it
    will slam you against the wall and you will lose health. There are a number
    of these "trap-doors" around the mansion. The best way to find them is to
    look on the GameBoy Horror. Real doors will appear on the floor maps but
    the trap-doors won't. While you are in the Hallway watch out for the Blue
    Mice that are roaming around. These don't have HP so you can suck them 
    straight up. Now go through the first door on the right.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Your first Gallery Ghost can be found in here. You will see him in the 
    rocking chair. This is Neville. You need to do is make him reveal his heart. 
    However, the first thing that you need to do is suck up the books that will
    launch themselves at you from the bookcase. You need these out of the way
    so that they don't break you connection with Neville later.
    
    Before tackling Neville, you have a chance to catch your first Golden
    Mouse. Use the X button to search behind the chair and you will see a lump
    of cheese. Click on this and a Golden Mouse will appear. Catch it and you
    will be in for a ton of cash. There are an another 9 of these mice to be
    found throughout the game. Note that you need to do this before you turn
    the lights on, otherwise it won't work.
    
    There is a Cash Ghost to be found in here also. Wait until a book launches
    itself at you and then suck it up. Now, search the desk with the books on.
    Here you will find a Cash Ghost hiding. Catch it and it will give up a 
    red gem and a ton of cash.
    
    Next you need to make Neville reveal his heart. This in reality is very 
    easy. Wait in the room, turn your back to him and leave the flashlight off.
    Wait until he yawns. At which point his heart will be revealed. Use the
    Poltergust 3000 to suck him up. This is a different kind of ghost though.
    You will notice that he has 100HP which will take a while to bring down. In
    addition to this Neville will drop Poisonous Mushrooms. If you touch this
    mushroom Luigi will shrink and the connection with the ghost will be
    broken. You cannot use the Poltergust 3000 until Luigi has returned to his
    normal size. In addition to this Gallery Ghosts will drop pearls while you
    attempt to catch them. These pearls have a G value and also contribute
    towards the frame that you awarded for the Gallery Ghost. For more info on
    this check the "Catching Ghosts" section.
    
    Once you have caught Neville a chest will appear. In the chest is the
    MASTER BEDROOM KEY. If you search the bookcase you will find a number of
    books that you can browse. These will contain a few nuggets of information.
    Information on how to catch Elemental Ghosts etc. This really isn't
    important, as I'll be covering this anyway. 
    
    Once you have had enough of the books, suck the cash out of the light
    fittings. Use the Poltergust 3000 on the books which are stacked on the
    desk. A lot of notes will be revealed. Suck these up and then head down the
    hallway to the Master Bedroom.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    In here you will find your second Gallery Ghost- Lydia. As with Neville, 
    you need to make her reveal her heart before you can catch her. Go over to
    the right hand window. Use the Poltergust 3000 to suck at the curtain. Once
    you have grabbed it move it to one side. Lydia will get up from her grooming
    mirror to shut the window ("such a draft!"). When she does this her heart 
    will be exposed. Suck her up. Once you have connected with Lydia, your 
    battle with her will be pretty much the same as it was with Neville. Avoid
    the Poisonous Mushrooms and collect the pearls. Once you have her in the
    (dust)bag you will receive the NURSERY KEY. Search the drawers for cash and
    then head out to the Nursery.

    Go over to the rocking horse on the left and collect the coins here. Use 
    the Poltergust 3000 to rock the rocking horse. This will cause Chauncey
    (the baby) to awake. He will then proceeds to attack you. Avoid the
    teddies or suck them up. Once they are gone, you are free to attack
    Chauncey. Suck up the ball from the floor. Line up the nozzle of the 
    Poltergust with the C stick. Once you are happy, release the R button to
    fire the ball at Chauncey. When you hit Chauncey he will get mad. Really
    mad. In fact he will shrink you down to size- literally.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Yes, as it turns out Chauncey is the Area 1 boss. You will now find 
    yourself stood inside Chauncey's cot, as a miniature Luigi. The seemingly
    super-sized Chauncey will appear in front of you. His first attack will be
    to fire rocking horses at you. These will move parallel with the cot until
    they move level with you. They will then charge straight at you. Once a 
    horse is locked on, all you need to do is run to the side. You need to be
    quick though, the horses can be deceptively fast. Once you have avoided
    2 horses Chauncey will change his attack. Balls will now rain down into
    the pen. Avoid these by running around the pen. You can see where the balls
    are about to land by looking at the shadows so make sure you don't get hit.
    
    One ball will be left behind. Suck it up onto the end of the Poltergust and
    fire it at Chauncey. Line up with the C stick but don't forget the height
    of your shot. Whilst you are doing this, Chauncey will revert back to the
    rocking horses to attack. Make sure you don't get hit. If you miss with
    your first shot go through the process again until you do hit him. When
    you have hit him go over and suck him up. He will have 100HP the same as
    the other Gallery Ghosts. Eventually, Chauncey will break the connection 
    of his own accord, so you won't do this in one go.
    
    When the connection is broken Chauncey will change his attack again. He
    will drop into the pen and jump around. Jump and slam, jump and slam.
    He will do a lap or two of the pen and try and squash you. When he has
    done this he will revert to his rocking horse and ball attacks, although
    this time they will be quicker, with more balls. In addition to this, you
    may find that the rocking horses will now attack in pairs. Repeat this
    process until you have drained all of Chauncey's HP. This will probably take
    2-3 turns. Once you have caught Chauncey, you collect the AREA TWO KEY from
    the chest and Gadd will bring you back to the lab.

    Back at the lab, Gadd will take you through the process of changing ghosts
    into portraits. Hopefully you will have caught all 3; Neville, Lydia and
    Chauncey. You can now view these in the Gallery if you wish. There will
    also be a small summary of all the cash that you have collected in Area One.
    When you are ready, head back to the mansion.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    This is the main hallway between the rooms on the first floor. In here
    you will find plenty of ghosts; Bats, Yellow Ghosts, Mice, Purple Bombers,
    Bowling Ghosts and White Hangers. All these have 0 HP, which means that to
    defeat them all you need to do is stun them and suck them straight up.
    
    At the moment the only door that is open is located in the top left hand
    end of the hallway (check the GameBoy Horror). Go through here into...

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Catch the 2 White Grabbers in here. These ghosts will grab hold of you and
    suck your cash. To get them off wiggle the C stick. These can be caught in
    the same way the normal ghosts are caught. Gadd will contact you on the
    GameBoy Horror to explain how to deal with these ghosts. Once you have
    defeated these ghosts use the Poltergust to get the BALLROOM KEY from the
    shelf on the left. If you need any health search the cabinet. Now head
    out to the Ballroom.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Enter the Ballroom and you will have your first encounter with the Masked
    Ghosts. These ghosts will dance around with spears , whilst wearing masks.
    To catch them you first need to suck off their masks. Don't get too close
    to their spears though. Once the mask has been removed, you can stun the
    ghosts with the flashlight and then suck them up. If you break the 
    connection before you have caught the ghost you will have to repeat the
    whole process. There are 6 or so ghosts to catch here, but you can usually
    take the masks and stun them in pairs.
    
    Once you have caught all these ghosts, your next Gallery Ghosts will appear.
    The Floating Whirlindas. Stand on the same rotating platform as the ghosts
    and turn off the flashlight. Line yourself up so that you will pass through
    the ghosts. When you go through or get close his heart will appear. Now suck
    them up. Once you have caught The Floating Whirlindas get the STORAGE ROOM KEY
    from the chest.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    There are 4 ghosts to catch in this room. There are 2 Pink Ghosts and 2 Red
    Grabbers, both with 20HP. The Red Grabbers are same as the White Grabbers
    but they have more health. Before you catch all the ghosts, there is a 
    Cash Ghost to be found. Search the boxes next to the chair to reveal it.
    Suck it up and collect the cash. Once you have caught the ghosts the light
    will come on. But there is no key! Oh my! A quick glance at the GameBoy
    Horror will show the room to be bigger than it appears in reality. Use the
    X button to search. Look at the wall adjacent to the Ballroom. On this wall
    is a button labelled "Don't Push!". Push it.
    
    This will make the left hand wall slide back on rollers and double the size
    of the room. Go into the new part. Look at the poster on the wall here. 
    "DANGER!". Suck the poster from the wall. This will reveal another button
    to push. So push it. The trap door behind you will open. At first all is
    quiet. Then. Boos stream out of it. King Boo (the one with the crown)
    will excitedly announce "Luigi's is here!". Unfortunately for him, he
    doesn't like the look of the Poltergust 3000 on Luigi's back so he legs
    it. Gadd via the GameBoy Horror will tell you that the Boos were responsible
    for releasing the Gallery Ghosts.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Back at the Lab, Gadd will give you a new side quest. You need to capture
    all 50 of the Boos that you just released. Apparently capturing the Boos 
    will reduce their power. What this actually means is that you will need to
    have caught a certain number of Boos at certain points in the game before
    you can proceed. Gadd will explain how the GameBoy Horror will ring and
    flash when there is a Boo or a Boo-related object in the room. This is 
    called the Boo Radar. Boo-related objects can either be Bombs (such as the
    once Purple Bombers have) or Balls.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Head back in here and use the Boo Radar to search around. In here you will
    find your first Boo. This Boo is "Boo La La" who has 60HP. You do not need
    to stun the Boo, simply use the Poltergust 3000. If he goes through the
    wall follow it if possible. If it goes into a room which you cannot access
    yet the Boo will be lost for now. You will be able to find the Boo again
    hiding in another room. After you have caught a Boo, Gadd will save your
    game. Note that Boos will only hide in rooms which have been lit up. Before
    leaving the room search the chandeliers and the chairs for cash.

    In here you will find your fifth Boo "GameBoo Advance" with 30HP. If you
    have caught all of the Boos that you have met so far this will be your 
    fifth Boo. Gadd will contact you on the GameBoy Horror. He will suggest 
    that you go to the Washroom (hint hint). If you missed a Boo or two, keep 
    searching.

    After that quick little trip around the houses it is time to head back to
    the first floor and the Washroom. The Washroom is located right next to the
    Bathroom. Check the GameBoy Horror if your unsure. 
    
    Once you are here, speak to the crying Toad. He will say that he dropped
    something important down the toilet. Tell him not to worry about it. The
    lights will now come on. Search the toilet and you will find the FORTUNE
    TELLERS ROOM KEY. Before leaving search around for any cash.

    There a 5 Blue Grabbers in this room. You can't see them, but you can see
    their reflection in the mirror. You can also see the smoke when they appear.
    Once you have caught them all, the lights will come on and a large red
    chest will appear. Open it up and you will find the FIRE ELEMENT MEDAL.
    This medal allows you to use the fire element. Basically you can suck the
    fire element ghosts from fires and expel fire from the Poltergust 3000. This
    is useful for fighting Ice Element Ghosts, lighting candles, melting ice,
    etc. There is a fire on the right of the room, so you can try this out now
    as you need to light all the candles to open the exit. Before you leave
    catch the Boo in this room. "Kung Boo" with 40HP.

    Use the Fire Element to light all of the candles in the corners of this
    room. This will cause the LAUNDRY ROOM KEY to appear on top of a pillar to
    the right of the room. Use the Poltergust to retrieve it. Before leaving use
    the X button to search. Behind Madame Clairvoya is a block of cheese. Click
    it and a Golden Mouse will appear. Catch it and pocket the cash. Then head
    out to the Laundry Room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    In this room there are 2 Pink Ghosts, 1 Red Grabber and a White Grabber to
    deal with. Once you have defeated these search the area for cash. Now search
    the laundering machines to find MARIO'S HAT. There are another 4  such items
    to find before this is any use, but more on that later. Open the chest to
    collect all the cash. Before you leave catch the Boo; "Boogie" 40HP. Exit
    into the Butler's Room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Search under the stools in here and you will find a Cash Ghost. Suck it up
    and then head back out to the 1F Hallway.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Walk down the Hallway until you reach a candle floating on it's own
    volition. Use the Fire Element on it and the Butler- Shivers will reveal
    himself. Shivers is the next Gallery Ghost. He will now head back to the 
    Butler's Room- just follow him.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Once you are in here, wait for Shivers to sit down and then suck him up. 
    Watch out for the usual Poisonous Mushrooms and collect the pearls. Once
    you have caught him, open the chest to find the CONSERVATORY KEY. Search
    around the room to pick up some cash. There is a Boo to be found in here 
    also; "PeekaBoo" with 40HP. 
    
    Once you have caught the Boo make sure that you have some Fire Element.
    Next, use the X button to search the right hand wall. Here, next to the 
    toilet roll, you will notice a mouse hole. Click on it and you will be
    sucked into the adjacent room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You will now be in the Hidden Room. This room doesn't have a door, so this
    is the only way in. The first thing to so is suck up the Bats otherwise
    they will get in the way. Next take a look around. There is a stack of
    chests in this room. Look below to see what to expect.

    First of all search out the ghosts. You won't have come up against the
    Ice Element Ghosts before. They have 20HP and can't be stunned at first.
    You need to burn them with the Fire Element. It doesn't need to take any
    HP as long as it has hit. You can now stun them with the flashlight and
    suck their HP in the usual way. Once you have sucked them all up, the 
    lights will come on. You can now search the chests for cash. Next search
    the green chest that just appeared. In here is a real treasure trove of
    coins, notes, gold bars and a Blue Gem, a Red Gem and a Green Gem.
    
    The chest with nothing in will later house a Cash Ghost, but I'll tell you
    about this when you need to know. Find "GumBoo" (40HP) before leaving. To
    do this search for the mouse hole again, in the left hand wall.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    The conservatory is home to another Gallery Ghost- Melody. There are a 
    number of musical instruments in the Conservatory. Press A to set the 
    instruments playing. Set off the saxophone, the cello/bass, all 3 drums,
    the harp and the xylophone. The tune that the instruments play should be
    instantly recognisable to you. Walk over to the piano. Melody will now
    address you. Listen to here piano sonata. There are a couple of different
    questions she may ask you. If it is another recognisable Mario-style tune, 
    tell her that it is from Super Mario Bros. 3. If it is something different
    tell her that the answer is Water. In response to this she will attack you
    with her music sheets. Suck them all up at once. These will keep reappearing
    so get them all at the same time or you'll never do it. Melody's heart will
    now appear. Suck her up. Once you have caught Melody collect the DINING ROOM
    KEY from the chest. Before leaving catch "Boomeo" (40HP).

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    There is a Gallery Ghost to be found here also. The first thing to do is 
    suck up all the banana skins on the floor. Next go over to the cabinet on the
    left of the room. In here is a Cash Ghost.
    
    When you are ready, use the Fire Element to light all the candles on the
    table. If you need Fire Element it can be found on the right of the room.
    Lighting the candles will reveal MR. LUGGS. Use the Poltergust 3000 to suck
    up his food. This will speed up his assistants who are Waiter Ghosts. These
    ghosts have a mere 10HP, so just stun them and suck them up. Now suck up MR.
    LUGGS'S food again but when it disappears this time there will be no waiters
    to renew it. MR. LUGGS will be angry. So angry that he will attack you. He
    will shoot fireballs at you. Dodge these by running back and forth.
    Eventually he will get tired. When he does, his heart will be revealed and
    you can suck him up. Once you have caught MR. LUGGS a green chest will appear.
    In here you will find a gem and cash. Before moving on catch "Boodacious"
    (80HP). Head through the door on the left.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Open the open on the left hand side of the room as soon as you get in here.
    Here you will find a Cash Ghost. Catch it quick! Lap up the money and move
    to the left hand side of the room. Pans will now hurl themselves at you from
    the worktop. Suck them all into the Poltergust 3000. Once you have removed
    them all go over to the fridge. DO NOT OPEN IT!	This is much the same as the
    trap-doors. Instead you need to use the Poltergust 3000 to suck it open.
    Inside you will find an Ice Element Ghost. Use the Fire Element on it, then
    stun and suck it up. This will turn on the lights. Open the large blue
    chest. In here you will find the WATER ELEMENT MEDAL. This works much the
    same as the Fire Element, but the Poltergust 3000 expels water, rather than
    fire. Open the other oven and light a fire inside. A Red Diamond will be
    revealed. Catch the Boo that is lurking in here "Booligan" (80HP). Gain some
    Water Element from the sink and use it upon the flaming door to the left. Go
    through the door.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Out in the Boneyard you will find the next Gallery Ghost- "Spooky". Walk
    over to the kennel and you will see Spooky, the dog ghost. Use the Water
    Element to spray Spooky and antagonise him. Keep spraying and he will bark.
    A Skele-Ghost will now appear. He will have 30HP. Stun and catch him. When
    he disappears he will leave a bone behind. Spooky will now go and
    investigate the bone. His heart will now appear. 
    
    Once you have caught Spooky, move over to the right, onto the patch of
    soil. Here you will find a green bud. Use the Water Element upon it and it
    will sprout. You will need to come back here later for a reward. Don't
    worry yourself about that for now, I'll tell you when.
    
    Head over to Spooky's kennel and use the X button to search. Look inside
    the kennel and click inside. You will now be transported over the back wall
    into the next area of the Boneyard. Go forward and search one of the 
    headstones. This will cause 3 Skele-Ghosts to appear. Once you have dealt
    with these search the headstones if you need health. Head towards the large
    tombstone. The tombstone will be struck by lightening and a purple ghost
    will appear.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You will now be in an entirely different area. As you start a Shadow Ghost
    will be in front of you. Suck it up and it will turn into a ball, stuck in
    the end of the nozzle of the Poltergust 3000. You now need to shoot this
    ball at Bogmire. If you miss there are more Shadow Ghosts anyway. The
    bigger the shadow ghost that you use, the longer it will incapacitate
    Bogmire for. Once you hit Bogmire you can drain his health. He has 100HP
    same as the other Gallery Ghosts. Repeat the process that I have just laid
    out until you have caught Bogmire.

    Well done. You have caught Bogmire. Open the shiny chest at the Boneyard.
    Inside is the AREA THREE KEY. Gadd will now take you back to the lab.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Gadd will now put the ghosts through the portrait-making process again.
    This time you will have found 6 ghosts and 9 in total.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Once you are done head back to the mansion. Your first port of call should
    be the Boneyard. Use the Water Element on the seedling and it will now bloom
    into a flower. One more visit and you'll be in the money.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You will now find yourself in the Courtyard. Take out all the Flying Fish
    floating around. Next take some Water Element from the fountain. Head over
    to the right and here you will bump into a White Hanger- suck it up. On
    the trees further to the right you will come across 3 Purple Bombers. Catch
    these and a chest will appear. Inside you will find 2 gold bars and plenty
    of cash. Next shake the nearby birdhouse and something will drop out. It's
    MARIO'S LETTER! More on that in a moment.
    
    Look down the well and you will see a ladder. Climb down the ladder into
    the well. Once you are at the bottom, walk along the passage. You will
    now see a cutscene. Luigi will peer into the room and will see Mario
    trapped inside a painting! Unfortunately, Luigi can't fit through the gap
    to get into the room here, so you'll have to drag your ass through another
    two areas.
    
    Turn around and a White Hanger will attack. Catch it and a lantern will 
    come on at the bottom of the well. More importantly, you will gain the
    REC ROOM KEY. Go up the ladders and head over to the right. Shake the
    statue here and gather the cash from it. Nearby is a hut. Don't open it.
    Just like the fridge in the kitchen, it will cause you harm. Instead use
    the Poltergust 3000 to open the door. Inside you will find Toad. He will
    tell you that he saw Mario at the bottom of the well also. He says that
    he saw some items around the mansion that Mario must have dropped. You
    will already have two of these items; the hat and the letter. This leaves
    you to find the glove, the shoe and the star. When you are done with Toad
    go over to the right and head into the Rec Room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    The next gallery ghost can be found in the Rec Room. Biff Atlas. He is
    lifting weights in the middle of the room. Before you go to him, search the
    bag on the right of the room. In here is a Cash Ghost. Move over to the
    punchbag behind him and punch it into him. Keep out of the way as it swings
    back at you. Biff will now attack you. Keep out of the way of his swinging
    arms. Hit him with another punchbag. Repeat this until he has shown his
    heart. When he does, catch him with the Poltergust 3000. Open the green chest
    and collect the goodies from inside. 
    
    Move over to the left hand side of the room and you will see a treadmill.
    Jump on it and start running. A key will fall onto the floor. This key
    will open up a shortcut to the 1-2F staircase, so you won't have to walk
    through the Courtyard everytime. Before leaving the room catch "Booregard"
    (100HP). Note that you will need to use Water Element in a moment, so if 
    you don't have any, get some from the fountain. When you are ready, head out
    of the door in the middle of the room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Open the door on the left. This will join this area to the first floor
    hallway. You can now get to the staircase without walking through the
    Courtyard. Now go up the stairs to the right.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    On the stairs catch the Bats floating around. Next use the Poltergust 3000
    on the light and collect the cash. Use the Water Element on the flaming
    door at the top of he stairs. Go through the door.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    The ghosts in this room will appear randomly. There are two White Grabbers
    in here. Watch out for the flying plates and then suck up the ghosts. A
    chest will now appear on the table. But you can't reach it. Go to the right
    hand side of the room and you will see a pad on the floor. Walk onto it
    and it will throw you feet first onto the ceiling. You can now walk on
    the roof. Walk back over to the centre of the room, above the chest. Here
    is another pad on the ceiling. Walk onto it and you will drop onto the
    table. Open the chest. Inside is the ICE ELEMENT MEDAL. This is much the
    same as the other two element medals that you have found. However, instead
    of expelling fire or water, the Poltergust 3000 will expel ice. Get some
    Ice Element from the ice bucket on the adjacent table. In the cabinet on
    the right hand wall you will find a red gem. Catch "Mr. Boojangles" (50HP)
    before leaving the room.

    Go through the door to the left and enter the main body of the second floor
    corridor. You will notice that there are quite a few doors open here. Go 
    straight forward and into the room in the top left. This is the 2F Bathroom.
    It is in the same location as the 1F Bathroom, but a floor up. Head into
    here but watch out for the Purple Bombers and the mice on the way.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Enter the Bathroom and you will notice that there is someone in the shower.
    Use the Poltergust 3000 to move the curtain aside. Miss Petunia is in the
    shower and she is the next Gallery Ghost. Use the Ice Element on her. This
    will reveal her heart, so suck her up. Once she is caught the lights will
    come on and a chest will appear. Inside the chest is the BILLIARDS ROOM KEY.
    Exit this room and go through the door straight across the hallway.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    As you walk into this room you will see a rocking chair moving by itself.
    Or maybe not. Use the X button to search and you will see Nana in the chair.
    Do not attack her yet. Instead, go over to the chair on the right side of the
    room. Here is a Cash Ghost. 
    
    Now, suck up the wool balls that are on the table next to her. Nana will now 
    begin to move. Suck up the wool balls and fire them at her, just like you
    did in the fight with Bogmire. Hit Nana with all 3 balls, but beware as 
    she will spit at you. Once you have hit her 3 times she will reveal her
    heart. If you break the connection, you will be able to stun and suck up
    Nana, rather than going through the whole thing again. 
    
    When you have caught Nana, search the cabinet and the lights for cash. 
    You will also find "LimBooger" (100HP) in here. Search the chest and you
    will find the TWINS ROOM KEY.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    As with the first floor, the second floor Washroom is located next to the
    Bathroom. Go in and suck up the Water Element. Open the toilet and out will
    jump a Fire Element Ghost. Use the Water Element on it, then stun it with
    the flashlight and suck it up. A chest will now appear. Inside is a pile of
    cash.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    This is through the last remaining open door on the second floor. Get some
    Fire Element before you go in here. Once you are here try and head out of
    the door on the opposite side. Notice anything familiar? Obviously this is
    going to take a bit more brain power than that.
    
    Use the Fire Element to light all the candles in the room. The flames will
    turn purple and an Orange Ghost will appear. More will appear, another 
    Orange Ghost, a White Grabber and 3 Masked Ghosts. Once you have caught them
    all the room will light up. Search the room for cash and then catch
    "Booswoggle" (100HP). You can now go through into the room on the right.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    In here search the drawers for some cash. Next, go over to the telescope
    and have a look through it. Ooooh the moon! Back in the room, the walls will
    melt away to reveal the night sky. Go over to the balcony. You will see a
    number of shooting stars will fly past. Suck a star up with the Poltergust
    3000. You need to fire this at the moon and hit it. This could take a few
    goes so keep at it. When you do hit it a shiny, cloud-like path will appear
    in the sky. This will lead to a platform, on which is MARIO'S STAR. One
    more item left.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Head back down to the first floor and enter the Billiards Room. It is 
    located opposite the Conservatory. In here is Slim Bankshot. The next
    Gallery Ghost. He is playing pool. Wait for him to break and the balls will
    shoot into the air. Suck up a ball and fire it at him. Hit him with 3 balls
    and he will reveal his heart. After you have caught him a chest will appear.
    Inside is a clear gem and a wad of cash. Search the drawers for more cash.
    Find "Boohoo" (50HP) and then leave the room via the door on the right.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Turn on the projector at the back of the room. The ghosts in this room will
    now appear without provocation. There are 6 Purple Grabbers in here. You
    can see their shadows projected onto the screen if you need help. Once you
    have caught them all open the chest. In here you will find MARIO'S GLOVE.
    This is the third of Mario's items. Only two more left. Catch "ShamBoo"
    (50HP) before leaving.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    The Twin's Room can be found next to the Nursery. In the other wing of the
    second floor. Check the GameBoy Horror if you are unsure. Anyway when you 
    get here have a look around. See the mobile on the ceiling? Use the
    Poltergust 3000 to make it spin. Make sure it is doing full circles. The
    twins will appear. The Twins are Gallery Ghosts. They will ask you to play
    hide and seek. Go outside and wait for them to hide. When they are ready
    go back in and look in the boxes scattered around the room. 
    
    Suck each of the boxes in turn. The ones that remain still are empty, but if
    you find one that shakes, you will find a twin inside. Find the second one by
    the same method. When you do find them both, they will attack. Thanks to Mike
    for telling me how to find out which boxes the twins are hiding in.
    
    One will jump into a toy truck, whilst the other will jump in a toy
    aeroplane. Start by using the Poltergust 3000 on the one in the truck. 
    The truck will then be suck away from him. You can now stun him and suck
    him up. Whilst you are doing this you need to beware of the other Twin
    in the plane. He will drop bombs on you. Once you take one out the other
    one in the plane should be easy. Use the vacuum to suck the plane away
    from the Twin and you will be free to suck him up. Once you have caught
    both of them a chest will appear. In the chest you will find the last of
    Mario's items, THE SHOE.
    
    Now that you have all five of the Mario items you need to head back down
    to the Fortune Teller's Room on the first floor. You will find "Booris" who
    has 100HP in this room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You may have spoken with Clairvoya on your previous visit to the Fortune
    Teller's Room. However, it wasn't really important then, whereas now it is.
    Use the X button to search and shine your flashlight upon the crystal ball.
    Madame Clairvoya will now appear. Show her all 5 of Mario's items. She will
    talk some endless crap about Mario. Yawn. Once she has had all 5 of her
    "visions" she will allow you to suck her up. She struggles a lot to say that
    she wants to be caught.
    
    When you have caught Madame Clairvoya, move on to the Boo in this room.
    The Boo is "Boogli" with 40HP. Now open the chest and you will find the
    SAFARI ROOM KEY.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Head up to the second floor. On your way through make a brief stop at the
    Tea Room to gain some Ice Element. Follow the hallway past the final locked
    door on this floor. Go up the stairs here and at the top go through the door
    into the Safari Room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    As soon as you are in here use the X button to search. Next to the boxes on
    the right you will find another block of cheese. Click it to find another
    Golden Mouse. Now search the lights for cash. Most importantly, use the
    Poltergust 3000 on the stag head trophies. One by one 3 Water Element Ghosts
    will appear. Use the Ice Element on them, then stun them and suck them up.
    In addition to these there will be 2 Green Ghosts to deal with. Watch out
    for the banana skins and suck them up. After you have caught these ghosts
    the lights will come on. Open the chest to receive the BALCONY KEY. Search
    the room to find "Little Boo Peep" (100HP). On more thing to mention about
    this room. There is a chest on the right hand side containing a Big Heart.
    Each time you leave this room and come back, the heart will be replaced.
    Leave the room through the door on the left. Head forward towards to
    door at the end of the corridor.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You will need to have caught at least 20 Boos to be allowed access to this
    boss. If you have less than 20, you'll have to get out and find them.
    
    Once you have enough Boos head out onto the Balcony. Walk over to the circle
    off Boos over to the left. These Boos will then form together to form 
    Boolossus. As soon as Boolossus is formed, he will begin to attack. Avoid
    the jumping attacks and use the Poltergust 3000 to suck at Boolossus. When
    you have a connection with him, move over to the unicorn statue. Spike him
    on the statue's horn and Boolossus will break down into the single Boos. 
    
    Suck up the Ice Element nearby and use it on the flying Boos. Once you 
    have frozen one vacuum it up. When you look at the Boos they will fly 
    away. Face the other way and lure them in. Then turn around and use the
    Ice Element on them. Watch out for the flying attacks that the Boos will
    perform though. Keep repeating this process. The less Boos there are, the
    faster and harder to catch they will become. 
    
    After you have caught all the Boos, Boolossus will be defeated. You will
    gain an extra 15 Boos due to this fight. This leaves a maximum of 15 more
    for you to find, though in reality this could be less.
    
    Open the chest. Inside you will find the AREA FOUR KEY. Gadd will now take
    you back to the lab.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Back at the Lab, Gadd will turn the Gallery Ghosts in portraits. You should
    have caught another 7 Gallery Ghosts in this area and 16 all together. Once
    you have seen the summary, head back to the mansion.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Go back out to the Boneyard and water the flower in the soil patch. This

    Head all the way back up to the Balcony. If you want, you could take some 
    Water Element, as there are plenty of cash giving plants up there. Walk over
    to the left hand side of the balcony. Open the door here. This will cause
    lightening to strike the mansion 3 times. This will blow out the lights all
    over the mansion. The ghost presence will increase tenfold whilst the lights
    are out. Head through the door.

    As soon as you are in here you will here a phone ringing. Move over to the
    right and answer the second phone. Say that you are Luigi. Toad is on the
    other end. He will tell you about the breaker switch in the basement, which
    will turn the lights back on. Now answer the next phone on the right. This
    will be E. Gadd. He will tell you about your next gallery ghost- Uncle
    Grimmly. Apparently this blackout is the perfect time to catch Grimmly, as
    he only likes very dark places. Apparently he only likes rooms with mirrors
    in them (hint). However, before you go to catch Grimmly, there are a few
    places that you need to visit for some extra cash. You don't have to go 
    and pick up this cash, but if you are interested in your rank at the end,
    then you might want to.
    
    Catch the ghosts in the telephone room and then leave.

    Head back down to the Hidden Room. If you forgot how to get in here, then
    use the X button to search. There is a mouse hole in the right hand wall.
    Click on the hole and you will be sucked through to the adjacent room.
    In here, in the far right hand chest is a Cash Ghost. However, you might
    want to clear the other ghosts in the room or they could get in the way.

    Once you have had enough of cashing in, go to the Wardrobe Room. This is 
    located on the second floor. It was like the 3 or 4th room you went in.
    Go up the stairs, into the Parlour and through the Anteroom. You are now
    in the Wardrobe Room. 
    
    Uncle Grimmly will be standing in front of the mirror at the back of the
    room. Stand in front of him facing forwards. Turn off your flashlight. He
    will now try to scare you and his heart will appear. Turn around and suck
    him up. A chest will now appear. Inside is the BREAKER ROOM KEY.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    For those who don't know, the Breaker Room is in the basement. It was open
    earlier in the game, before the blackout. It was merely full of Blue Mice
    then. Open up the door and head inside. Go over to the breaker switch on 
    the back wall. Pull it and the lights will come back on. A chest will appear
    containing the CELLAR KEY. Catch the Boo in here; "Boo B. Hatch" who has
    200HP.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    The Cellar is right across the hall from the Breaker Room. Head in. Now go
    over to the right and you will see mounds of dust in the way. Vacuum these
    up. The more you vacuum the deeper into the room you will get. Take out
    all the dust piles. Search both barrels in the room to reveal a couple of
    Pink Ghosts. Take these out. There is also a Cash Ghost hiding in the room.
    Search the table on the left of the room to reveal it. Once you have caught
    the ghosts you will reveal the CLOCKWORK ROOM KEY.
    
    There are a few ceiling pads in the room 2 to send you up and 2 to return.
    These are to save time. Every time you leave the cellar the dust piles will
    reappear, so use these pads to save time. Search the room for cash in  the
    shelves and in the light. Beware of the Poisonous Mushroom hidden in the
    centre shelves though. Before you leave this room, catch "Boorepedes" who has
    100HP.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Return to the third floor. Catch all the ghosts in this room. These can be
    found in the large wooden chests. These are Skele-Ghosts with 30HP. Once
    you have caught them a chest containing cash will be revealed. Search the
    cabinet on the right for more cash. Catch "Boomerang" (300HP) and then
    leave the room via the room on the back wall.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    In here you will find 3 ghosts lined up in cases. These are the Clockwork
    Soldiers. To get them to react, start all of the clocks around the room. Once
    they start to move, they will attack you with their toy shotguns. If you let
    them chase you, eventually their wind-up key will fall out. This takes too
    long. Instead, use the Poltergust 3000 to make the key turn quicker. Try and
    get 2 or all 3 at a time, but this is very difficult, so you may be stuck
    with doing it one at a time. If you connect with one, watch out as the others
    will still be attacking. Once you get one out of the way, it will become
    easier.
    
    Once you have caught all 3, a door will open where the ghosts were standing.
    You will be pleased to know these 3 were Gallery Ghosts, so that's another
    one in the bag. Find the Boo in this room "Boocaster" who has a massive 300HP.
    When you are done go through the door.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    This "door" will turn out to be a lift, which will take you up to the roof.
    As soon as you are here you will find 6 Masked Ghosts. You should be able 
    to catch these in pairs no danger. After you have caught these you will have
    2 Ice Element Ghosts to deal with. Get some Fire Element from the bonfire
    and take out the ghosts. Finally, when you have defeated them, go over to
    the left hand side of the roof. Climb the ladder up the chimney here. In a
    chest is the ARMORY KEY. Go back down the ladder and go over to the right
    hand side of the roof. Climb the ladder up the chimney here. Drop down the
    hole in the top of the chimney. You will land in the...

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    This is the room on the second floor, which has the door boarded up. There
    are various chests in this room, giving you various amounts of cash, a Cash
    Ghost and normal ghosts (and orange, blue, a pink and a purple). Once you
    have caught all the ghosts a light will come on. A chest will appear. Inside
    is the SITTING ROOM KEY. There is a mirror on the back wall, covered by a
    sheet. Use the Poltergust 3000 to reveal the mirror. Search the mirror to be
    transported to the foyer.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Go up to the second floor. Check the GameBoy Horror. The Sitting Room is
    next to the 2-3 floor staircase. Once you are in there gain some Fire
    Element from the candle on the table. Now, light the two candles on the 
    back way. 5 Orange Ghosts will appear. Stun them and suck them up. After
    that two Fire Element Ghosts will appear. Gain some Water Element in the
    near left hand corner of the room and then use it on the ghosts. Stun them
    and suck them up to finish them off. The room will now light up. Catch
    "Boolivia" who has 100HP. Now get some Water Element and then head through
    the door on the right.

    A short cut scene will be shown as you enter this room. Sue Pea, a Gallery
    Ghost will warn you not to wake her. All this without opening her eyes.
    Move over to her and use the Water Element to wake her up. Whilst she is
    dangling vacuum her up. Beware of the toys that with throw themselves at
    you, suck these up if you get the chance. Sue Pea shouldn't cause you too
    much trouble. When you have caught her a green chest will appear on the
    ceiling. How am I to get that I hear you wondering? Leave the Guest Room and
    a loud rumbling noise can be heard. Head back inside.
    
    The room will have righted itself and the chest is on the floor. Inside is
    a clear gem and a lot of cash. Search for "Boonita" (100HP).

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Go back up to the third floor, across the Balcony and through the Area Four
    Door. Off this hallway is the Armoury. You will already have the key for it.
    The ghosts are hiding in here. Search the coats of armour and the wooden
    chests to find the ghosts. There are 2 Pink Ghosts, 1 Red Grabber, 1 Orange
    Ghost, 1 Blue Ghost and a Green Ghost. There is also a lot of cash to be
    found. Once you have caught all the ghosts a chest will appear. In this 
    chest is the PIPE ROOM KEY. Before you advance search out "UnderBoo"
    (150HP). Go through the door at the back of the room.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    In here go over to the vase with the kind of Boo pattern on it and speak to
    Jarvis. Jarvis is a Gallery Ghost. He will challenge you to see how many
    times you can freeze him with ice. Go over and get some Ice Element. You
    need to freeze him seven times. This is a very easy game. Wait until Jarvis
    appears in a vase, then freeze him with the Ice Element. Once you have
    frozen seven of Jarvis he will accept that you won. He will then attack. By 
    which he will send vases to attack you. However, his heart will be visible
    whilst you do this. Go over to his vase and suck him up. This should be
    easy for you by now, just watch out for the vases.
    
    After you have caught him, a green chest will appear. In the chest is
    a clear gem and a load of cash. Collect it all. Search the vases around the
    room for extra cash. Then, before you leave the room, find "TamBoorine"
    (200HP).

    Go all the way back down into the basement, Go through the cellar and onto
    the corridor here. The second door on the left will open with the PIPE ROOM
    KEY. Watch out for the White Hanger, the Purple Bomber and the Exploders on
    this corridor.

    Suck up all the Flying Fish straight away. Once these are out of the way
    you will have 2 Red Grabbers and White Grabber to deal with. This doesn't
    sound like a lot, but it can be difficult as connections can be easily 
    interrupted. Once the ghosts are gone get some Ice Element from the corner
    and freeze the water to the left. When this is turned to ice, Luigi can walk
    on it. Walk over and turn the valve. This will shut off the water. Now walk
    over to the right and open the chest. Inside you will find COLD STORAGE. Look
    around for "Booffant" who has a massive 300HP. Leave the room and head next
    door.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    Cold is the operative word here when describing this room. It is full of ice!
    Take some Fire Element from the fire as soon as you enter. Move over to the
    far corner of the room. Watch out for the falling icicles as you do this.
    An icicle will shake before it drops, so you know where they will fall. In
    the far corner there is a ghost trapped in the ice. This is a Gallery Ghost
    named Sir Weston. First you need to get him to show his heart. 
    
    Use the Fire Element to light to two piles of wood either side of him. 
    Sir Weston will complain that you are "making it too HOT!". He will now
    attack. The first thing that you need to watch out for are the falling
    icicles. Keep an eye out where they will fall. He will cause icicles to
    shoot up at you from the floor. You can dodge these by moving to the side
    when they head for you. When you get the chance, use the Fire Element on Sir
    Weston. This will reveal his heart. Suck him up. You may find this difficult
    though, as the falling icicles will cause you trouble. Do your best to avoid
    them, but it may take a couple of tries until you have sapped all of his
    health.
    
    When you have caught him, a chest will appear. In here you will find the
    ARTIST'S STUDIO KEY. Find the Boo in this room "Boolderdash" (150HP).
    Catching him may be difficult in this icy room, so if he escapes, follow
    him. After you are finished with the Boo, go up to THE ARTIST'S STUDIO on
    the third floor.

    |                             THE ARTIST'S STUDIO                            |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    As soon as you enter this room a cutscene will ensure. There is an artist
    ghost. This is Vincent Van Gore. Van Gore is a Gallery Ghost. He paints the
    ghosts and they come to life. He has been causing you some trouble hasn't
    he?
    
    He will now bring to life each of his paintings in turn. The first ghosts
    that you will fight are Orange Ghosts. There are 3 of these. Stun and suck
    all 3 at once. Next there are 3 Pink Ghosts, followed by 3 Blue Ghosts. If
    you are quick, you can stun all 3 at same time, as with the Orange Ghosts.
    This will save you a lot of hassle. If you are short on health, the ghosts
    should drop some hearts to top you up. After the Blue Ghosts will come the
    Red Grabbers. Suck these up and 3 Green Ghosts will appear. Really try and
    get these all at once otherwise all those banana skins will be a pain in
    the rear. After you have dealt with those there will be only 3 Purple
    Bombers remaining. Be careful not to get hit by the bombs and then suck
    them up. Don't forget, these have 0HP so it shouldn't take too long, right?
    
    Finally you have caught them all. Van Gore will get seriously stroppy now.
    All you need to do is stun him and suck him up. He has 100HP same as
    the other Gallery Ghosts. After he is gone, he will leave the SECRET ALTER
    KEY behind. Oohhh. Search out "Bootique" who is another one with 300HP. This
    should be the fiftieth Boo. You will be rewarded with a Gold Gem worth
    20,000,000G. Oh yeah. When you are ready, head down to the basement and the
    Secret Altar. You may want to speak to Toad on the way down, to save your
    game. This is only really necessary if you missed out on Bootique.

    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You will need at least 40 Boos to be allowed entry to the Secret Altar. If you
    haven't got them, get looking. Ready? Great.
    
    This is the room which you saw at the bottom of the well. When you are in
    here search around for cash and a Blue Gem, in the torches and chandeliers.
    Now, walk forwards to confront King Boo. He will admire his "Mario Painting"
    and wish that he had one for Luigi to match it. At this point, the room will
    spin and the painting of Mario will turn into a painting of Bowser! King
    Boo will jump into the painting and suck you in.

    |                            FINAL BOSS: KING BOO                            |
    '----------------------------------------------------------------------------'
    
    You will now be on a long stone platform in a world shrouded in fire and 
    smoke. Bowser will drop down to join Luigi. So this is it. The final boss.
    
    Bowser will open by breathing fire at you. Step back and don't stand on the
    stones that he has heated up. He will then proceed to throw spiky balls at
    you. If you stand too near these, they will cause you damage when they
    explode. Now, suck up one of the balls onto the end of the Poltergust 3000.
    Bowser will now run over to you and either breathe fire again or he will
    try and suck you into his mouth. Stand well back (as to avoid being hit) and
    when he bends over, fire the ball at him. This will knock his head off and
    King Boo will come out of the Bower Suit! Shocked? Anyway, whilst King Boo
    is out, you need to suck his HP with the Poltergust 3000. Whilst you do this
    the Bowser head will spit ice at you, so keep  moving. If you are hit by
    the ice waggle the C stick. King Boo has a HUGE 500HP so this will take a
    while. If you are running low on health, hearts can be found after Bowser
    has trampled one of the pillars around the area. Beware though, the pillars
    also contain Poisonous Mushrooms. 
    
    After a while King Boo will go back in the Bowser Suit and the head will
    be replaced. Repeat the process. After you have drained around half of
    his HP, when the head is returned to the body, it will face backwards.
    Bowser will now charge around randomly, so keep out of the way. After he
    has trampled over some pillars, the head will be turned the correct way
    and the breathing fire/sucking air, throwing balls process will resume.
    Try not to get too far away from Bowser after he has thrown the balls. If
    you are far away, instead of running at you, he will jump and land right
    next to you (or on top if you don't move out of the way of his shadow).
    You need him to run so that you can fire the ball at him.
    
    Keep going over and over this method until you have finally drained King
    Boo's HP. 
    
    The best tip here that I could give you is, conserve your health. There
    isn't much lying around, so if you lose it then it's gone. If you have a
    choice of losing some health but taking a chunk of King Boo's HP or saving
    yourself, then save yourself.
    
    Finally, when you have sucked all of King Boo's HP, you will catch him in
    the Poltergust 3000. The Bowser Suit will fall to the ground, powerless
    without King Boo.

    Back at the Lab for the last time. Gadd will tell you that the mansion
    has disappeared, but you can keep the treasure that you earned. Gadd will
    then turn the Gallery Ghosts into portraits again. You should have caught
    the final seven ghosts and hopefully all 23 in total! After summing up
    your total cash earned in the game, Mario will be returned to Luigi. Yay.
    Job done.
    
    Sit through the credits and find out your rank if you like. The portrait

    Your ranking will displayed on a portrait of Luigi's new mansion. The better
    your grade, the better the portrait. This can be viewed in the Gallery
    afterwards.
    
    Some terrible news for those who own PAL copies. The 150,0000 G mark cannot
    be reached. There simply isn't enough gold in the mansion. It can be achieved
    in the hidden mansion, where you will find extra gold, but not playing the
    game through the first time. However, those on NTSC versions will find that
    the A Ranking can be achieved with any amount over 100,000,000 G.
    
    There are 12 different types of monies in Luigi's Mansion. Here they are and
    how much one unit is valued at.

    |~11~                         THE HIDDEN MANSION                       [THMN]|
    '-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-='
    
    Once you have reached the end of the game, visit the lab. You will now have
    the option to go the Hidden Mansion. So what is the Hidden Mansion? Basically
    it is the same mansion and the same game but with a few differences.
    
    
    1) First of all the rooms are inside out and back to front. Well not really,
       in reality the hidden mansion is mirror version of the original mansion. 
    
    2) The Poltergust 3000 are 1.5 times stronger. This might not seem like a lot,
       but this can make a real difference, especially against large numbers of
       ghosts.
    
    3) The ghosts in the Hidden Mansion are faster, stronger and harder to catch.
    
    These are just a few key points. For a detailed guide into the Hidden Mansion
    follow this link-
    
    http://www.gamefaqs.com/console/gamecube/file/516494/46847
    
    
    I will not be adding a Hidden Mansion guide to this FAQ. It is basically the
    same game, with a few differences. This to me would be a very cheap way to
    earn KB on my CRP at GameFAQs, as it would near enough be a copy and paste
    job.

    |~12~                       GOLDEN MOUSE LOCATIONS                     [GMLN]|
    '-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-='
    
    There are 10 Golden Mice to be found around the mansion. Each time that you
    find and catch one, you will be rewarded with a ton of cash. Yay. The first 5
    mice are found by using cheese. Then next 5 will appear randomly. Remember
    that these mice will only appear in the dark. You either need to find these
    before turning on the lights, or during the black out in Area Four.
    
    
     =============
      CHEESE MICE
     =============
    
    1) Found in the Study, behind the desk.
    
    2) In the Fortune Teller's Room, behind Madame Clairvoya's table.
    
    3) In the Dining Room, behind the table.
    
    4) In the Tea Room. Go to the left hand side and you will see it behind the
       table.
    
    5) In the Safari Room, just in front of the pile of boxes.
    
    
     =============
      RANDOM MICE
     =============
    
    1) In the kitchen.
    
    2) On the first floor, near the Ball Room.
    
    3) On the second floor, outside the Sealed Room.
    
    4) In the Tea Room.
    
    5) In the Sealed Room. This one is a real pain in the rear end. You need to go
       all the way up to the roof and drop into this room. If the mouse is not 
       here then you need to go all the way back to the foyer and then all the way
       back up to the roof and repeat.
