If this is the case, then how do we make sense of the italicised question marks?
If they are not numerical?
By 6 characters I mean words and/or letters.. Can't decipher any other clue yet.
What I mean is that: if we follow the previous protocol of the passcode ending in 13AR (for these challenges so far), then the format of ??????keyword???? does not indicate that whether the last four characters ARE indeed 13AR...
just don't google NMAEE GIMHE
Counting the difference, inserts or substitutions between each words would help you solve the code.
This is sounding like regex
Thanks. That helped a lot but still stumped on prefix
I've got 13A so far but everything else is a mess
Thinking keyword is Victor, Abaddon, or Distant. Any thoughts?
I hope I can be in the top 50
"Counting the difference, inserts or substitutions between each words would help you solve the code."
This is meaningless to me.
walked->unproductive how the heck do you want that to count? +6? but they both have an e? what happens when character counts change, but there are some common characters?
unproductive -> productive -2
productive ->zombie now what? -4? o and i are same, how does that affect counting?
and then what to do with a string of meaningless numbers?
this clue is useless to me.
thank you! <3
believe it or not you are quite almost there. just need to tweak the way you process it. :)
you're most welcome! Here's a mole for you as your reward • :)
So the difference from zombie to decentralisationist is... 13? 10? 16?
Still not making any sense.
Why would you give away the solve after just a few hours?
(the visionary's quote) [...] a distant <word>, a distant <word>, a distant <word> [...]
I believe I got the keyword as well as the seemingly-correct suffix (we all know what will that be) but I am stuck on prefix..
--- Edit: made it.
------ And then what on hell does the bottom-left and bottom-right strings tell?
I can't believe those are red herrings. did you get the media?
Bottom right is a huge hint, that I missed not part of the code, but hint on the method.
Thanks for this! Not that I have solved the whole thing, but I've been trying to based on the hint here.
It's not fun to wake up and see the solve already spoiled 🙄
Then don't read the thread.
It's not fun for those of us who are finding this difficult to see people complaining the answer has been posted when it clearly hasn't.
I did read after solving,
But it's still not fun to see the walkthrough so early,
People didn't even try to think 🙄
I've finally managed to get the keyword and suffix, any clue for the prefix format?
I think I'm missing a character, or I could use the one that's there, but then the format doesn't correspond with the image hint 🤔
Thanks for the hints, btw.
I needed insight.
Difference, inspiration and discovery!
Finally solved it, man, I was chasing a red herring in the decoded words for so long, due to the suffix being really similar when decoded incorrectly.
Whoever put a 'fake' format in the lower left, really needs to rethink why they did that.
If there's a "walk through" here, I haven't seen it. I've been noodling at it for 5 hours now.
