Female 4
oki managed to pass 14. anyone stuck at L15?
Female 4
I am at L14. I know what the phase means but what do i type as the answer. typing the phase in english isnt working!
Male 88
level 1 ??
Female 505
"Clearly I am retarded because I cannot get past level two. I dont see the symbols which some of you mentioned, not to barge in on your...level 14 talk or whatever."

No, clearly I am retarded because I cannot get past level 1.

Male 11
Im on level 9 with the rainbow tables.. which decoder did you guys use? i still cant find one.. :(
Male 2,553
i got owned after at level 2 XD
Male 38
I just cant seem to crack the hash on level 10 :\...

None of online hash crackers I tried found it in the database, and most of them dont crack :\

Also... Minus... What minus?
I guess my brain stopped :\

Male 1,220
k i just used the html escape codes haha. ANYWAY! anyone got an idea for 11?
Male 1,220
k help me out martomator i dont understand # ten
Male 83
Im sure I have the answer to level 11. If dcp is here could he help? as to not spoil it, the term I have in mind has the initials WR. wtwtr rtng.

Am I on the right track? Its not working in the address bar

Male 83
wow, level ten was not as hard as I expected. by alt they mean th alt tag of the image, helped me a lot
Male 83
Im on lvl 10 now
Male 38
Nope Bomb... lol

Still stuck on level 10 myself...
The number looks like hash again... but it didnt get decoded by the online things...

Male 1,220
anyone? level ten help?
Male 1,220
LEVEL 10! wooooo!
Male 1,220
YES i found one! level nine is decoded!
Male 1,220
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.
Male 38
Ahhhhh... MD5 :D
Male 38
Level 9 looks like hex color codes to me o.o...
Male 38
See... I did already search the exactly same string on google... But I searched it on local google...
Guess I wont do that again...

Thanks :D

Male 83

You are looking for two words whcih are on that page, you need to seperate them by an underscore

Male 38
Level 7 is the one with memory access violation :\
Male 1,361
wowzers, im not getting past level 1,

lack of trying? no
lack of caring? hellz yeah,

good luck to everyone else

Female 728
For anyone on here who is still on the Qweb (brown background) riddle, I am stuck on level 7. I have looked at the source and someone in the other forum said something about changing it to a jpeg, but I dont know how to do that. Help?
Male 83
which one is level 7 again? ill help
Male 83
Level 9 is hard, anyone done it?
Male 38
Help me with level 7 and I might help you on level 8... lol... :P
Male 83
Stuck on level 8. Do not know what the d stands for.
Male 38
I guess Im just stupid for level 7...
Memory access violation doesnt seem to help...
What is the other name for it? Memory leak? :\
Male 2,344
Clearly I am retarded because I cannot get past level two. I dont see the symbols which some of you mentioned, not to barge in on your...level 14 talk or whatever.
Female 6
Geez, guys... Im still stuck on 7
Male 35
No, use an online lookup table.
Male 1,220
frick my computer cant take more programs
Male 1,220
is that long string a hash????
Male 1,220
Male 35
<b> Means bold, but the html isnt part of the riddle. Rainbow tables, and the reverse clue fro tniH is all you need. (oh and the string of random letters and numbers)
Male 1,220
k so im looking things up right now: <table> is the start of a table <tr> is the start of a table row <td> is the start of a table data cell i cant find out what <b> means
Male 35
Lol, well its not really part of the riddle. Ill give you a large hint: the Roy Gib is a rainbow, and in the source code its in a table, which indicates rainbow tables, look the term up. Think about the tniH aswell, its related to rainbow tables.
Male 1,220
and i dont know html. at all. so thats it for me for this level!
Male 35
You missed one other clue, the source code around Roy Biv, might not seem relevant if you dont know html.
Male 1,220
hints: ROY BIV (g is missing, the letter for green)
"heres a tniH" found in source code (hint backwards)

i tyoed in the long stream of numbers into google, also i typed it in backwards but nothing came up either way

Male 1,220
*smarty pants dance* (with help)
*SMARTY PANTS DANCE* (WITH HELP)
Male 292
well im in ireland and its 1:00 here so im going to get some shut eye.

i did make it to level 9 though after much perseverance.

Male 1,220
YES! I GOT IT!
Male 1,220
oooooooooooooo! *revalation*
Male 35
So the first row would be nelnursn
Male 35
No, D=13! Its rot13. If you have the text editor vim, you can select text and type g?.
Male 1,220
finished graph in my proposed way:

ieoowsaa
geygdgme
atelcroe
aryahefa
hyfsjklw
bakrjoka

Male 1,220
15 rotations.... so would it be
a r y a h e f a
h y f s j k l w
b a k n j o k a
i e o o w s a a <---(original)
g e y g d g m e
a t e l c r o e

would the a in the top left move to the i four spaces down?

Male 1,220
d=15 in hexidecimal!
Male 35
haha, ok, ill give a helpful hint this time: Think of the Caeser shift, the most common version of it. D isnt a letter, its a hexidecimal number.
Male 1,078
Wait so dcp c=26?
Male 1,220
no. you are making absolutely no sense. i have to go eat dinner. this better be solved by the time i get back or i am going to find dcp and slap him upside the head for introducing this demon into my life
Male 1,078
Ok Dcp, I think I get what youre saying. But then again maybe no...because you never gave us a benchmark such as a=d, so perhaps im wrong.
Male 1,220
do you mean rotating in the shape of a "D"?
Male 35
Ok, think rot-D, and go make yourself a salad ;)
Male 35
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 ;)
Male 1,220
i dont understand d rotations!
Male 1,220
i have tried so many methods of going through these letters, then entering in the stream of letters into the answer key, is there something you need to do with the letters before you enter them?
Male 1,220
i basically mean that it overflows, so if there is 3 rows, 4 would rollover to the first row."

ive figured that much out. and what a mod is.

Male 1,078
Dcp:

Are you implying a=26? (hopefully you get what I mean)

Female 53
dcp: Directional rotation?
Male 35
Or more specifically, what else could D be?
Male 35
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.
Male 1,220
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?

Male 35
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.
Male 292
well i thought i understood what i was supposed to do, but apparently i dont b/c i cant figure it out.
Female 18
k im done with this.
ive wasted so much time trying to figure it out.
Male 1,078
Crap looks like Im getting possessed by the devil again.

And thanks DCP.

Male 1,220
tornado, no one is in the blue pill room, come in there adn tell me the answer.
Male 35
tornadofdoom: No, it isnt a real word, i didnt want people to stumble onto later levels accidentally ;), happened to qweb a few times before it was changed.
Male 1,220
no the spoiler didnt work
Male 1,078
Masterz:

Now help me with 8.

Dcp I get what youre telling us to do, and I used the extra hint, but I keep getting weird combinations of letters that dont work. Should it be a comprehensible word?

Male 1,078
Bomb:

Any more and Ill give the answer away...

Dcp told us that it was another term for a memory access violation, but instead of typing in technical term, i just typed in

(hope the spoiler works)

[spoiler] also known as [/spoiler]

Female 18
im so confused i cant figure out seven. help please
Male 1,220
tornado! i helped you for 6 you help me for 7!
Male 1,220
im still not getting it, i looked up the technical term for a "memory access violation" but nothing came up.
Male 292
awesome got it
Male 35
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 ;).
Male 1,078
Yea.

Heres my hint:

Dcp gave us the answer with his last hint. Use google to fill in the missing info.

Male 292
tornado did you figure it out?
if so help.
Female 18
is the error a const mismatch error dcp?
Female 53
Im gonna ask my programmer friend (for lack of a better term) about the C thing. :/
Male 1,078
Male 292
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.
Male 35
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.
Female 19
omg.....I never thought to refresh that page lol. thanks a lot!
Male 1,078
Now level 7 is pissing me off...

I see the changing symbols in the dividers along with where the words are divided...

But I dont see how to apply this. Man Im off today. I was so much better at phobos.

Male 292
fyre: refresh the page you went to that just said direct
Female 19
I know that direct is am img...and I have tried dragging it all over. I dragged it to the address bar and it just went to a page with the word direct on it...
Female 18
which part the code?
Male 1,078
Fyre:

Direct is an image. Drag it.

Female 19
omg I cant get lvl 1...
Male 292
hmmmm considering my programming skills are zilch this could get interesting.
Male 1,078
*facepalms*

I was typing out the number. Im an idiot.

Male 35
grandmasterz: yup, well C or C++. You could either compile and run the code, or just guess what error it causes. Its a common runtime error.
Male 1,078
OH!

I was putting the number before the movie. Lol.

Female 18
has anyone gotten 7
Male 292
is this a C++ riddle?

im not quite sure how to deal with that

Male 1,220
Male 1,078
Melancholies:

It does. At least it used to.

Female 53
tornadofdoom: I dont think IAB *has* spoiler tags.
Male 1,078
Why arent my spoiler tags working?
Male 1,078
Bomb:

None. That was my first guess, and I knew DCP meant [spoiler] goldfinger [/spoiler]

I can never type the right answer.

Female 18
yeah six is a trick question. i already got it..
Male 35
Melancholies: almost, it isnt multiplication though. It might take a bit of searching to C the answer ;)
Male 1,220
tornadofdoom, how much dirt is in a hole? of ANY size?
Female 18
tis a trick question.
Male 1,078
Level 6 anybody? I know the James bond part, but what do you do for the math?

I know it involves conversions, but DCP is asking for SQUARE meters, not cubic, so...

Unless its a trick question (its a hole) which I first though, but you know, it didnt work.

Female 18
seven has got me stumped=/
Male 292
wow britt566. bitter much?
Male 292
and now dcps made 14 levels so i am only half way through now
Female 2,289
Im not on any level. I quit. Its bullsh*t and if theres no money at the end for me.... F*ck it.
Female 18
42 is * 43 is + and 61 is =
Male 292
42, 43, and 61 are ASCII for *, +, and = respectively
Male 35
chicagogal: the link on the homepage, i.e on dcprogramming.com/d14/ is a link to a different, recommended riddle, my riddle starts at dcprogramming.com/d14/level1, i updated the homepage to make it more clear.
Female 9
ug nevermind
Female 9
how am i doing the wrong riddle? i followed the link from this page and after passing level seven it led to what i am on now. how is it the wrong riddle?
Male 1,220
what do #s 42, 43, and 61 mean?
Female 53
britt566: What is it that youre stuck on? (Im sure those people arent doing it on purpose...)
Male 35
Hmm, heres another hint, dont think about the dividors and the words seperatly. They are related, the comment tags themselves are the only useless part of the code.
Female 53
Chicagogal: Thats not dcps riddle. :/
Male 1,220
chicagogal:

YOU ARE DOING THE WRONG RIDDLE.

Male 1,220
i am paying attention to what is dividing them, in between each one is the same sequence with slight variations on one part if it:
( *)(, )(;) ( ) (, ) (,) (;)
( &#42;egr&#43;+&#61;ety=1;)

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

Female 9
DCP - http://riddle.qwebbusiness.com/ YES I AM AT THIS SITE! I am on level 8 still stuck I am not understanding the clues you are giving me, when I refresh the page the little icon that has the broken link is no longer there and the page source doesnt change at all, I dont see anything I should be typing in the URL and I have tried so many guesses.
Female 2,289
I keep seeing all of these people like waaay ahead of me going Ex: "Oh man... Im on like level 166 ... this is sooo hard.. any help?"

Like F*CK YOU.

Male 1,078
Woah, you guys solved level 5. Nice.
Female 53
Thank you, dcp. :D
Male 35
Format is "[movie][num]_" replacing the bracketed items with the answer.
Female 53
Gah, some help with Level 6 please?
I know which movie it is (and the answer to the question in the source code), but I dunno how to format the answer. @[email protected]
Male 35
Take notice of what is dividing them up.
Male 1,220
anyone here?
brb
Male 1,220
k number seven. in the source code, the sentence shown is divided into these parts:

int/egr/ation/int/o/soci/ety/ will likey cause what?

Male 1,220
OHHHHH nevermind again
Male 1,220
k im in the articles section of dcprogramming.com but there is nothing there about james bond
Female 18
haha level 6 wasnt so bad at all=]
Male 292
check out the articles section
Male 1,220
ohhhhh nevermind
Male 1,220
how are we supposed to figure out his favorite bond movie just by his homepage?
Female 18
ohh i guess i just got the solution out of order.
oops! thanks dcp and grandmaster tho, love this challenge=]
Male 292
Male 292
Its this

but if you want to figure it out yourself brunettebebe is really close on how to put it in. you just have to turn it into the correct answer that we came up with earlier.

Male 35
brunettebebe: Yes, exactly! But you have the wrong answer. Google sin 45.
Male 1,220
Female 18
DCP. i dont understand
is it something like root_two_over_one? for level 5? im so confused.
Male 1,220
Male 1,220
have you guys figured out number five yet? i just got back from the grocery store.
Male 292
well 6 went relatively fast, but only b/c Id seen dcps homepage
Male 35
Ha, thanks mlewrenn :). For level 5 just think about a regular math class "i is equal to root negative one... root sixteen over four equals one".. etc, the answer is in that style, with underscores.

chicagogal: are you on riddle.qwebbusiness.com? Thats a different riddle lol, its just a recommended riddle on my front page.

Male 292
finally, i should have figured out the underscore thing due to the way it was in the source
thanks dcp
Female 9
the source for level 8 hasnt changed at all even though i refreshed the page. i dont understand!
Female 1
dcp does it have anything to do with 38.2906586
Female 6
Long time lurker, first time poster... and, dcp, you should be proud that its because of your riddle. Anyway... I have tried everything to get past level 5 haha! Im stuck!
Male 35
Its of the format word_word_word_word. Perhaps i should add a hint about underscores.
Male 292
dcp ive typed it in so many ways its rediculous, is it something besides the root(two) thing
Female 9
yeah the background is brown
Male 35
Brown? Are you doing the qweb riddle?
Female 9
haha apparently im really stupid because I dont see any change in the source and I cant find the answer anywhere
Female 9
ive been reloading the page, nothing comes up its been blank brown for a while
Male 35
chicagogal: Reload level 8, look in the source
Male 35
Think of how youd pronounce it in a math class, then spell it out in words. Reload the page if you havent got the extra hint yet.
Female 9
dcp what do you mean you added a few extra hints?
Male 292
ive been putting in 1/sqrt(two) every way that i can think of including sqrt(two)/two and i cant get it to work
Male 35
chicagogal: reload the page, i added a few extra hints. It was a bit ambigious ;)
Female 9
Level 8 is irritating me to no end. Does anyone know how to pass it?
Male 31
Male 292
Im afraid i dont know what TWO plain english means
Female 15,763
The only way I can do this is by reading and then copying a walk through.
Male 35
Youre all on the right track, the only useless information on the page is g(x). Somebody already posted the answer, just in the wrong form, convert it TWO plain english, and youre done.
Male 292
Im thinking we need to rethink this level. we havent even considered trying to find something in the actual text of the level.
Male 83
Still got nothing. Including calculus in an online riddle will severely restrict his target audience. It seems illogical for him to do this. Maybe the maths is a ruse?
Male 924
here itll probably break tho forum butit should work for you
Male 83
Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit. I was not accusing you, just posting reasons behind my doubts. The part where u see calculus, I see blank space
Male 1,078
Um moojuice...I see nothing.

Perhaps its an IE vs Firefox thing?

Male 924
this is a screen shot to prove its there for me http://img134.imageshack.us/my.php?image=screenjx8.png
Male 38
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...

Male 83
I do not see " f(x)=\int cos(t) dt" when I open it in notepad. Do you? or are we relying on one persons word? If more people see it then it may be down to my computers fonts, otherwise I can guess BS
Male 924
so you dont consider f(x)=\int cos(t) dt to be calculus?
Female 140
oh, i give up. =P
Male 83
I open the gif file in notepad and see no calculus. So far I have taken the word of others.
Male 1,078
Mator:

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

Doesnt really seem like it.

Male 83
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.
Male 1,078
Guys, youre not done yet?

Oh come on. How long have I been gone?

Screw it, Ill give this to the math team (myself included), lets see how we do with that.

Male 83
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.
Male 38
/int cos(t) dt = sin(t)

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

Male 83
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)

Male 38
Marto... You forgot the \int part...
And you dont know t... f(x)=\int cos(t) dt... that means f(x) = sin(t), but what is t?
Male 1,220
all of you guys who are doing a riddle with a brown background are doing the wrong riddle!

http://www.dcprogramming.com/d14/level1

THAT is level one to the riddle that was posted. you went to the riddle that was under this sites "recommended riddles"

Male 292
well im going to go try and grab something to eat, so good luck and Ill return after while.
Male 83
I get:

GIF89a

Get sum1 else to check b4 we continue..
btw the answer to that formula is 38.2906586

f(x)=sin(t) dt.

=sin(45) x 45

Male 38
I already go to 1/sqrt(2)... but I had no clue what to do with it...
And well... I still dont...

Ok... we have that f(x) = sin(t), but what does that mean? What is t? And how to type it in... lol...

Male 292
i dont know i was just happy 2 showed up somewhere
Male 38
Yes grandmaster, but where does 45 jump in?

It would be f(45)= sin(t)... what is t?

Male 292
sin(45) = 1/sqrt(2)
Male 38
What do you see? :S
Male 292
the integral of cos(t)dt is sin(t)
Male 22
this may sound stupid, but I suspect that level 13 has to do with a nursery rhyme.
Male 83
I did what you said, and that is not what I see.
Male 38
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?

Male 83
OEN, thats not what it says for me. what exactly did u do to convert?
Female 67
I gave up on lvl 2
Female 1,134
this is the cheep version of the enigma riddles
Male 38
Ok... heres a new clue...
I saved analytics.gif and converted it to plain English - text file... it says exactly this:

GIF89a  € &#729;&#729;&#729;&#729;&#729;&#729;!&#355;f(x)=\int cos(t) dt ,   D ;

Male 98
to get to lvl 5 the word is indigo. come on iab. dont fail us.
Male 383
soooo.... no-ones got lvl 5? lvl 4 is hahaha.
Male 98

ah well:/ i only do GCSE maths :P

Male 68
Alright guys, there are books to be read in my world, people to talk to.
Male 292
this whole level 5 thing is becoming ridiculous
Female 308
Im playing the same one as you are Legendary, but Im only on Level 8
Male 1,078
No, I remembered something but it was wrong.

I gotta go guys.

You better finish level 5 in these 2 hours.

Male 13
03843932 oebaegez?
Male 83
whats this about z = 26? have u got the answer to L5?
Male 1,078
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.

Male 98
LOL FAIL ON LEGENDARY!
Male 68
Wow, three posts in a row saying the same thing.
A hat trick if you will.
Female 10
wow i hate my laptop then. gave me the wrong link? hell if i know
Male 1,220
legendary, you are on a totally different riddle.
Male 38
Legendary: you are playing a different riddle...
Male 1,078
Legendary:

Uh, thats not the riddle were doing.

Male 83
i still dont geddit, and I didnt hack. sounded impressive though rite?
Male 1,078
Ok, maybe not.
Female 10
level 13....viola....i need help
Male 1,078
GUYS!

Z=26.

I cant believe I didnt think of that.

And,

You hacked IAB?

DAVY!

Damn..

Male 68
Wait wait wait...
Level 13, seriously?
If so, please explain Lv. 5
Male 98
Analytics is defined as the "science of analysis" by wikipedia. but i tried typing a few combinations of the words in and nothing works :/

is anyone actually past level 5?

Male 13
if we convert that number into letters is that not plain english? like take the number as being leet for something - im not entirely sure what it would say though
Female 10
Im on level 13....help?
Male 83
I told u to stop babbling, so i took it a step further
Male 68
The Hell just happened?
Male 13
03843932 which is that number
Male 83
Can you guys stop filling the comments with babble about tom cruise and keep on track
Male 13
iv just caught up with you guys and seems to me like they want you to use the number from the source on the previous page in some way

gave us a cheeky wink about it ;)

Male 1,220
"Where did smartbomb go?"

insane!

Male 68
The Imam will be easy, but its too late in the year to get a hold of Tom Cruise.
Male 83
The only reason they focus on japan is because the company is japanese
Male 38
Hmm...
Are we supposed to take this one literally too?
Are we supposed to type in "analytics" in plain English? o.o

Im losing it... lol

Male 68
Ill get a Vicar, a priest, and maybe a Rabbi for good measure.
Male 38
4w and analytics dont seem to say anything :\

Same goes for two, ln and f(45)...

Male 68
Male 83
plain is a lime pit in france
Male 83
the japanese way of saying 45 is yon juu go or si juu go. neither work
Male 38
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.

Male 38
Also... Bomb... I tried all of the combinations with the Japanese words... and it didnt get me anywhere...
Male 68
Male 83
No it shouldnt. Plain means ordinary, plane means a surface or an aeroplane
Male 1,220
@green_batman

you were supposed to search "re", which would give you the result "research will get you nowhere". nowhere is the answer

Male 38
It isnt misspelled...
However if it was it could say "convert to plane, f-45"
Male 68
When I posted that, your post count was 888.
8 is considered lucky in China.
Female 728
Thanks. I just dont understand what I was actually supposed to search.
Male 1,220
....that makes close to no sense to me, mehayo
Male 83
Why are you concentrating on plain? In what way is it misspelt?
Male 68
Side note:
Bomb,
You are good luck in China.
Male 1,220
green batman: answers to level three and four are nowhere and indigo
Male 1,220
two in Japanese is "ni"

plain, however, is "taira, akiraka, jimi, purein, heigen, jimi, or heii"

Male 68
Noes, look into that, they are really pushing the Japanese market there.
Female 728
I think Im way over my head on this one. Im seriously stuck on level 3 and the stuff you guys are talking about for later levels is giving me a headache.
Male 38
On 4w.com, when you click on translations, they mention Japanese more than the other languages...

Could it be "two plain" on Japanese?

Male 83
There is only one spelling error.
Male 68
Ill put the math on the back burner for now.
Male 68
So...
We have a math equation and a web hosting company...
Male 1,220
they do site translations, could that have to do with "convert two plain english"
Male 1,220
OOOOOooooo that has to do with TWO hints in the source. k this means SOMETHING.
Male 68
Alright Tornado, where do we go from there?
Male 38
I just figured out something... I think

convert_two_plain_english doesnt only have one word misspelled, but two.

It says convert to plane...
What is the name for f-45 jet?

Male 1,220
no one is in the chat room.
Male 68
And there goes the topic train.
Male 1,220
wow... i just scrolled down.... not a single girl is here.

ladies???? are you here and just not posting?

Male 68
Alright men, I have a graphing calculator, give me some numbers and I will try and make sense of them.
Male 38
Note that it says g(x) = ln(x), what is _f(45)_
F... not g...

Also... I have no clue if it is of any relevance... but the analytics.gif is 1 by 1 image, 8 bits depth - 58 bytes big...

Male 1,220
i am NOT a math man.
Male 83
logarithm =/= natural logarithm
Male 292
thats natural log, so log base e, but i really think that is just to distract you
Male 83
3.8066624897703197573912498070712

Dont see how that helps.

Male 1,220
i used google calculator: logarithm(45) = 1.65321251
Male 68
The first result I get for "Two Plain" seems to be about trick mirrors. Thoughts?
Male 292
i dont know, but have you tried using the analytics.gif? its just blank. Im confused as to what thats all about
Male 38
I think the f(45) thing is useless information...
Except the convert_two_plain_english... still trying to figure out what that is supposed to mean.
Male 1,220
"indigo"
Male 1,220
what the f is "4w"
also "convert_two_plain_english"
does the misspelled to have anything to do with it?
Male 1,220
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.
Male 68
Sorry.
Male 1,220
Think you have it, but still stuck? Heres a hint: 4W

Male 68
roygbIv
Male 1,220
tornadofdoom, thats a red herring.
Male 889
oh screw this game, i didnt graduate college to use my brain
Male 1,220
GOT IT. in one of the color codes, he used a hex code instead of a typed out color, which color should have been there?
Male 68
HAHA, LEVEL 5! Half way there.
Male 292
Im on level 5 YAY!!!

For level 4
Notice that on one of the letters the color isnt spelled out. then go from there.

Male 1,220
yeah haha i tried roygbiv
Male 68
Roy G Biv is out.
Male 38
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 :\
Male 68
Funny thing...I just tried those Smartbomb.
Male 1,220
I DID LEVEL THREEEEEE
*smarty pants dance*
*smarty pants dance*

k here are answers that definitely do not work on level four: johnnycash, johnny, cash.

Male 1,220
yaaaaaaaaaay.
Male 68
Alright, Im on board this little exercise. Lets get to it.
Male 145
heh i cant believe I still have this link... http://phobos.ramapo.edu/~clabulis/hallo...
Male 1,220
it should be over quickly.... IF I CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT TO FRICKEN SEARCH ON LEVEL 3!
Male 292
good now figure out level 4 so we can move on.
Male 145
DOOM! SMARTBOMB! yay the phobos team has arrived
Male 83
Thanks, got it finally. I had tried al variatiosn of that. I think that level was stupid and ambiguous though, my old riddle was wa cooler :)
Male 1,220
GAH! another online riddle! i am sooooo ready to spend days on this, like we did with phobos 3.
Male 292
"But I dont know what to search!"

Martomator Im giving you hints not answers. Its overly simple though and as soon as you realize what it is I foresee a facepalm.

Male 83
tornadofdoom: whats like a ship but deeper?
Male 83
But I dont know what to search!
Male 292
OhEffingNoes do you have an other thoughts on 4?
Male 38
Thanks you... lol...

Now get me a hint for level 4
>:)

Male 12,138
Welcome, noes.
Male 292
for level three you only have to search once to get the answer
Male 270
Got to level 4 and seem to be stuck....deng.
Male 83
Male 292
Martomator try thinking of it in a more literal sense.
Male 83
Cant get level three, the re-search one. Someone help. I get that I may have to search something more than once, but what?
Male 38
I cant get the meaning of number from level 4... if there is any...

Google doesnt really give good results to it... heh...

Male 292
Crapsniper use the hint from the original level page and the one from the ASCII code to come up with a good answer
Male 209
Woops, meant to say Opera instead of Opear >_<

Also, welcome OhEffingNoes, enjoy uour stay at IAB! :L

Male 292
im stuck on 4 as well now, and i have no clue. i think that number has something to do with it though.
Male 209
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

Female 4
you know what, i give up. apparently my computer doesnt work and i cant get past level 1 so bye.
Male 38
I guess I just dont get it... lol...
Ive tried some people connected with "Rainbow road" and some alternative meanings for it... :\
Male 292
OhEffingNoes hint is pretty much as good as it gets w/o just completely giving it away
Male 38
Judgesister - drag the "direct" in address bar
Female 4
i just cant get it!
ive tried everything!
Male 38
Darkhawk... a little hint on level 4?
I just cant seem to get it :\
Male 145
Happy first post Oheffingnoes
Female 4
Male 260
lvl 5 makes no sens, i enterd the nr as hex and dec and enterd the decimal as awnser and nothing, need a better tip then that crap.
Male 292
Female 4
i cant figure out level 1 even with your guys hints!
Male 38
Hints:
Level 1: direct is an image... try doing something with its URL

Level 2: Page source has a little something written with ASCII symbols... decipher it and youll get a hint :)

Level 3: Just re-search :D

<currently stuck at level 4>

Also... welcome to me... lol
Was stalking IAB for a while... finally decided to make an account :D

Male 2,586
