As others also have said, missing vocabulary was the issue. If not for that, I would have solved an hour or so in. And then the passcode rate limit was a problem...
I give up, I do not speak English nor can I read it to realize what it means or how to look for the word, I think Niantic should realize that there are not only English-speaking players in the game.
I've currently got 23 lower case letters, pretty stuck, no words jumping out at me.
I tried to use eng-anagram sites, but without results. 9 letters words maximum. sadly
The keyword is non obvious (if you don't know the word you will not spot it), and in plain text once you decode the image. googling the meaning of it IMMEDIATELY reveals it as the keyword however.
What app, none scanned for me... had to pen and paper this... Taco Bell won against the decrepit note I did on a napkin (so worth it though)
I managed to interpret the barcode as 23 letters, apparently random to my eye. The bar code method I used has a legitimate start and end code, as well as a correct check sum. It seems like it must be correct but it's gibberish (and not accepted as a passcode)
I keep getting 22 letters
Could it be a reference to Interleaved 2 of 5 barcodes but using 7 of 2 instead?
What are people using to scan the barcode? I am still having no luck with it...
first letters "ewh"?
Having 23 letters is the right path. The format of the passcode is xxx#xxkeyword##xx where x is a letter, # is a digit and keyword is a special word.
Having 23 letters is the right path. The format of the passcode is aaa#aakeyword##aa where a is a letter, # is a digit and keyword is a special word.
OMG! Got it with this!
Yup I’m done... had it once, now cannot scan it without getting fun stuff like this
Best of luck to the rest of y’all...
I did it manually, checking with common bar code systems. I don't see how you could get a scanner to read it, given what I had to do to "read" the pattern correctly.
It's possible to use image editing software (Microsoft Paint will do) to create in a series of simple steps one image that can then be read by a barcode scanner app (Google Lens worked for me). If you find out which way you have to manually "read" the pattern, you can use the same logic to create a barcode image to let the computer do all the boring work.
finally got it... thx for helps
Since there are already tons of spoilers in the thread... It can be eyeballed to count the bits and use the appropriate wiki to get the ASCII letters associated with each segment. It's a lot more tedious but it can be done. If you know the properties of the code it will help with the verification of each segment.
So, alarm clock was actually the passcode?
Thanks!! 😱😘 Cause decoding challenge accepted!!
It's possible it was a missed clue for me, But I saw it more as a red herring.
I feel you. Honestly, if I could get the letters I'd be set, but the barcode is way too finicky for me
Nope. Just unique media and a scoreboard for bragging rights.
if so try the recursedsheep image case i reach the limit of trying ( the limits not help ):\
I’m been to the forum part of Ingress. How would one make a code or get the codes. Is this something from redacte? I’ve just recently heard about decoding.
Same. Knowing the format definitely helped, but the keyword has been used before.
Well, took me a while but I got it at last :). Thanks for the hints here, and good luck to everyone else. There are a few ways to tackle this challenge, which is good.
Finally made it:) As a non-native speaker with missing vocabulary, got stuck at the keyword for too long.
The puzzle for this event is located in the first post of this thread. If you solve it, that is the code you can redeem on the Intel map or within your Android OS scanner.
To make a code, anyone can do that any time. But, not many from the general ingress audience will attempt to solve it unless there is a prize or special recognition.
