Tips and Troubleshooting

1. How to use the app:
• Install the Night Film Decoder app on your device.
• Search for the spray-painted bird image in select illustrations throughout NIGHT FILM. When you see it, launch the app on your device and scan the illustration with the rear-facing camera on your device until a Play button appears on the screen. Hint: Not every one hides a secret.
• Press the Play button and enjoy.

2. Tips for Issues with Image Scanning
• Make sure you scan a large portion of the image, not just the spray-painted bird image
• The app only works with images that include the spray-painted bird icon
• Sometimes the app won’t recognize an image until it is in focus. Give your camera a second to focus on the image. You can also double tap your camera screen to help it adjust its focus controls.
• If you are having trouble getting the app to recognize an image, try moving your device closer or further away from it until you see the red play button.

    Great little extra, I enjoyed reading the actresses diary from Thumbscrew the most. Remember to scan the whole page not just the bird icon.

    I have a limited lifespan and can't afford to wait hours for a "play" button to appear. Doubt it would be worth it anyway...
