I noticed that for Opera users getting past level 1 by dragging the direct image doesnt work (You dont get the message saying "The answer to level 1 is *********"). Ive had to use IE again.

Any Opear users, play this game with IE.

Also, Im stuck on level 2 :( Even after decoding it, I still dont get the hint TT_TT

I figure the level 4 hints are trying to say a man that comes on radio (as in singer/narrator/what ever) and had a homosexual affair...
I could easily be wrong, though... maybe it just has something to do with people who sang Rainbow Road, but I already tried most of them :\

look in the source code. look at the color codes for each letter of "rainbow". every single color is spelled out, except for one. the one that should be spelled out, but isnt, is your answer.

what the f is "4w"
also "convert_two_plain_english"
does the misspelled to have anything to do with it?

F... not g...

Could it be "two plain" on Japanese?

Marto, I didnt say _should_ I said _could_

Notice how two and to are pronounced similarly...
Its the same way with plain and plane...

So if two was misspelled on purpose, maybe this is too...
However, I cant seem to find an F-45 airplane... and the only airplane association I got from 4w is Firebird which didnt work either.

Mator:

Good one.

I think I advertised our case on the OF and maybe one of the mods mistook it for spam and deleted all the posts.

Lloyd:

That means:

Function G of x = Logarithm X

Then it tells us to find Function F of 45, which is not the same function.

I just changed the extension from .gif to .txt...
Or you could just open it with notepad...

And the random symbols arent important... what is important is that it says f(x)=\int cos(t) dt.
The only question is... what is t?

f(x)=sin(t) dt.

Marto... You forgot the \int part...

156. Martomator Male 13-17
83 posts
November 30, 2008 at 10:49 am
I guessed that by t they mean x, which I know is a stretch. f(x)=\int cos(t) dt

/int cos(t) = sin(t). and dt in this case = t. as t 9assuming it is x) is just an integer and not a formula (you do a derivative)

157. OhEffingNoes Male 18-29
38 posts
November 30, 2008 at 10:51 am
/int cos(t) dt = sin(t)

You have to name the base for the integrating which is the dt part...

It hardly matters. Think about it, is it very likely that the riddle went from trick questions in level four to full blown calculus in level five? Think how many possible players that would eliminate. Im liking this riddle less and less, because just like many others it is relying on ambiguous clues and lucky guesswork to progress, rather than fool proof reasoning. If you get to an answer and go, "ok then..." instead of "now I get it!" then it is poorly made.

The riddle intro said no outside programs would be required, so seeing as though there is no way to have gotten the extra calculus from the gif file from within your browser, the calculus can be disregarded.

November 30, 2008 at 11:07 am

So random calculus hiding inside a gif file is a complete coincidence? When the level focuses on math?

Doesnt really seem like it.

Yes, I created an account on here just to trick you that some random riddle image has a piece of calculus in it...
I have been busted...

No... really... -_-

Try just opening the gif file in notepad without changing the extension...
I already tried to re download the image and open it that way in notepad and wordpad and I see the same thing everywhere and no matter how I open it...

( *)(, )(;) ( ) (, ) (,) (;)
( &#42;egr&#43;+&#61;ety=1;)

are the only differences among the spacers. the last one seems like an equation

Ill give a hint for #7, although you may not understand it all if you dont program. The variable isnt initialized, so it will likely cause an memory access violation, but thats not the technical term.

so someone who has a better grasp of C programming language needs to look at level 7 and tell me whats going on. All i can figure out is something in the code is wrong and Im pretty sure it has to do something with the "int" function.

November 30, 2008 at 3:39 pm
brunettebebe: No, the code should compile perfectly, its a runtime error. You see, the pointer isnt initialized, so by the definition of the C language, it could be anything, so its extremely likely that youll be accessing memory that doesnt belong to the program, which will cause a runtime memory access violation. Similar to say, a bus error, but not quite that ;).

If your stuck on level 8, the D rotations is the key really. You probably have the right idea, just missing an important first step.

wtf is a d rotation?

i took the modulo of all the coordinates, column first, and got the sequence 3000011

does that have anything to do with it?

278. dcp Male 18-29
35 posts
November 30, 2008 at 4:22 pm
Take it literally "D rotations", figure out what that means. By taking the mod, i basically mean that it overflows, so if there is 3 rows, 4 would rollover to the first row. Its just the coords of each letter, but you have to transform the letters somehow before doing that. Think what else D rotations could be.

284. dcp Male 18-29

November 30, 2008 at 4:29 pm
Hmm ok heres a better hint: You need to D rotate every individual letter, the order remains the same, then take the coords of the letter and you have your answer. Numbers are not in the answer, but you need them to figure it out, specially for the D rotate ;)

level 7: another definition for memory access violation is segmentation fault.
level 8: wayyyyyy too hard. even for me, you have to do a Caesar cipher, and change all the letters to the letter thirteen letters down in the alphabet (a yields n), THEN do the coordinates.
level nine:509c22632b2b78716097fd8dc8adbe2e" is probably a hash, but i have yet to find a free online rainbow table decoder thing.
