Yes, I have been asked all of these questions more than once!
1. I have a question, suggestion, comment, request, etc. How do I contact you?
In the BCL Forums, you can PM me. (Emi)
2. Is this site affiliated with Tecmo?
No. This site is in no way affiliated with Tecmo Inc. (Although I'd love to work there someday!). This site is just a fansite run by Fatal Frame/Project Zero fans.
3. Can I interview you for school/get some help on research/online gaming website/Magazine?
Sure! Just send me an email with your questions and I'll be happy to oblige.
4. I forgot my password for the forums!
Just email me (email@example.com) using the email address you registered to the forum with, and I'll set you back up. :)
5. I emailed you yesterday and you haven't answered yet!
I get a _lot_ of email from fans about the games & website. I try to answer/respond to all of it as soon as I can. Please be patient. I also do have work/responsibilities other than the website and sometimes I cannot answer for a few days, but I try to get back to everyone!
6. What consoles do you currently own?
Ps2, Xbox, Xbox360, Wii, PSP, DS, GBA, & Gamecube.

Fatal Frame Related Questions
7. Do you know ANYTHING else about (game/movie/etc)?
Everything I know/can publicly talk about is on the website.
8. Can you get me a role in the upcoming Fatal Frame Movie?
Again, just a fan with a website. I do not have those sorts of connections.
9. Fatal Frame I- IV Questions
Did you check the FFI | FFII | FFIII | FFIV FAQs first? If so, and you STILL need help email me! :)
10. I have this X film, X herbal medicines, and X sacred waters. How do I beat (ghost here?) with so little left?
Ask in the forums. I'm notoriously bad with technical questions. I can give you tips on particular ghost battling
strategy...but that's about it?
11. What is the ranking for (blank)?
FFI | FFII | FFIII | FFIV
12. I'm looking for images of (blank) character?
Have you checked the gallery first? If so, and you're still having problems, I'll try to do what I can.
13. Can you send me the Koe & Chou mp3s?
No. These Mp3s are copyrighted. Please support Amano Tsukiko by buying her music legally!
14. Hey, I saw (movie name here) which looks a lot like (game name here)?
Check the movie faq section first before sending me emails like this. :) Most of the horror movies are explained/answered there. Also, check individual game FAQ, I do mention specific similarities from movies/games there.
15. Which fatal frame games do you own?
I own every game (in english - US versions) of both Xbox & PS2 versions. I also have a copy of the PAL version of FF3.
16. Will you sell me merchandise or buy me merchandise over the internet?
No sorry, I am not interested in selling anything I have currently and I don't provide this type of service.
17. How DARE you allow Fatal Frame IV to be released on the Wii! It should be on the PS3-
Okay, I have been getting a handful of disgruntled mail from fans blaming ME for FFIV being on the Wii. AGAIN.
- I do not work at Tecmo.
- This website is in NO WAY affiliated or belongs to Tecmo Inc.
IE We do not have any say on what they do or do not do with their games.
- I do not personally know Keisuke Kikuchi or Makoto Shibata, nor do I have 'influence' over them.
- FOR THE RECORD, I will buy the game (and multiple versions if applicable) on whatever console system it comes out on. Period. I will also promote it on _any_ console system it comes out on. So don't accuse me of liking one over the other.
Please stop sending emails like this, I've gotten several of them already. I know fans are angry, but myself nor this site had any choice on the decision of what console Fatal Frame IV would be released on. I still plan on reporting the full game and everything related to it (because this IS a fansite). So please stop sending the hate mail here.
18. How come (this part of the website) isn't up yet?
Currently, I am trying my very best to get everything back up as quickly as possible. (This past month I've been incredibly busy/sick - May) This includes fixing old information that was inaccurate, making new graphics, getting screencaptures, and much more researching. I apologise for the inconvience.
19. I really want to help out the site! How can I?
There are a few ways to help out:
- Zero Wiki - articles are being written about all the characters, game items, etc in a variety of languages. Any and every little bit helps!
- News - if you find any new news on Fatal Frame IV or the series, feel free to email me!
- Scans - there are certain things that I would love to have scanned if people have the merchandise etc.
- Translations - if you do know japanese, we do need help with translations of the zero comic anthology and some interviews. Please email me for further details/scanned materials
20. I found some information that might be helpful for you!
Send it my way, I'll see what I can do/if I can use it!
21. I think some of your information is incorrect.
It is possible. I am only human and I have made errors in the past. (Hopefully most of them have been fixed with this current update!) If you feel some of the information on the webpage is inaccurate or needs to be updated/cleared up, please shoot me off an email address! I'd be happy to talk with you!
22. How long has BCL been up?
BCL has been online since 2003, right before Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly came out in the US.
23. Where is cameraslens.com hosted?
Godaddy.com (I highly recommend them)
24. What code is used on the website?
25. How do you make the graphics?
Photoshop CS2 & CS3
26. What programme do you code it in?
Notepad mainly. (For the record, yes, I can use dreamweaver.)
27. What forum software do you use?
SMF (Simple Machines Forums)
28. I found a broken link on the website!
Email me & let me know where! (It's a big website!)
29. Can I use images on the website?
Gallery images can only be used for school related projects, layouts, wallpapers, avatars etc. They should _NOT_ be used on other website galleries. IF YOU USE IMAGES, PLEASE LINK BACK / CREDIT THIS WEBSITE!
THIS INCLUDES TRANSLATIONS. I've noticed that several people have been taking Crimson Dream from the Zero Comic Anthology and translating it into other languages...PLEASE credit the original translator (at LEAST) for their work!
30. Can I link to your website?
Sure!! You can find link bars here.
31. I have a FF/PZ website/group/community/forum will you link me?
Of course! I love seeing new fatal frame websites! Just send me a link! (It doesn't matter what language it is in!)
32. Can we be affiliates?
Due to recent events in the fandom, my opinions of affiliation has been altered. I have REQUIREMENTS for affilites.
If you DO wish to affiliate with me:
- Your site must be horror, fatal frame, or tecmo related
- Your site should not be under construction.
- Affiliation is supporting each other and helping one another out. If you cannot do this, then don't ask me.
- Have a graphic that I can use to plug you!
- Please do not use your connection with me or this site to threaten others. I refuse to be involved with online disputes that are none of my business.
PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU ARE A FORUM THAT WISHES TO AFFILIATE:
- Affiliate forums should never use their affiliation with me or this website/forums to harass other members of the fatal frame fandom (or any fandom for that matter). If this happens, you will lose all affiliation with me and be banned from the BCL forums.
- The only person who EVER speaks for me, is ME. Do not PRESUME or insert my name into anything. Unless I directly talk to you, do NOT talk what others say as 'my opinion' or 'belief'.
- Know that I fully embrace each and every fansite/forum for the series, and am happy to promote them all (regardless of language!). The more the merrier as far as I'm concerned! If you cannot keep up this ideal, don't bother asking.
- Affiliates should not start up threads that badmouth this site or the forums. If you wish to have this kind of activity, you shouldn't ask to affiliate/support this website in the first place. Those caught will lose affiliation/be removed.
