Got it. Thanks jj1vvy and @RTLQuietuS for keeping me going. This seems to have people stumped more than last 2. When does the leaderboard get updated?
If it was insightful for people that are stuck, then I'm so glad I helped! honestly I think people would consider it a clue rather than a give away.
You don't have to hate. Don't get too worked up, your life is not at stake on this challenge and you're forgetting what Andrew said, think before you type. The spirit of this season and perhaps this challenge is to help each other out in unity. So yeah. Merry Christmas
Yeah, I prefer to have some hints here, you should know better than to read this thread if you don't want it to be spoiled.
Any hints for the preffix, please?
Honestly struggling with every aspect of this one. Have tried so many methods to try get something that remotely resembles but using all hints i still cannot seem to make a start. Mayneed to wait a few days and think more
such distant information was out of reach. however, all the hints provided in this thread is sufficient enough for even the most novice of decoders to figure it out.
I know.. because I'm a novice and I eventually got there. doing it on mobile.. and even pen and paper can be a bit difficult. thankfully, I found some resources online that helped measure such things.
Woke up to the solution and finally got it as well. With just the hint from here the actual code is pretty easy to find.
But I have to say, the "hints" in this one are not really helping, more like actively misleading. The bottom right "code" can be rearranged into a hint, but one character is separate from the rest. I don't think I would have gotten it without knowing what it's supposed to say. If it would have been 3x5 instead of 1+2x7 I likely would have seen it initially.
And the hint in the bottom left just matches last weeks passcode format. I don't see how it is relevant at all to this week, except saying that the general format is the same (which we already assumed anyways). The highlighted ?s are just misleading.
i think i;m very close, but i can't figure out which ones are letters and which are numbers. the lower left didn't work....
Hi! I suppose that is 3x5 instead of 3x15 ?
Yes, that was a typo, thanks
it's kinda fishy down there.. just remember the last 2 challenges. I believe in you.
I had a hard time finding the rule.
Thank God I finally made it!!!
The format and the character I was missing were in front of my eyes all of the time 🤯
got it. confirm, the two hints at the bottom are friggen useless.
so, what is is that we need to count?
Are there any resources can be recommend here?
not without giving it away completely. I just looked for a calculator on google. lol.
Got it, but I've got to say that this one is my least favorite for now. I never had such trouble getting the whole passcode even though I had the keyword about an hour ago...
May be just me though.
Same, it took me some time to find what to do, but I desperately couldn't finish the last step. Was sitting a whole hour to get the last percentage of the code. But easier than the other ones imo.
The hint on the bottem right helped me a lot to get in the right direction btw.
Me too, just got it. Getting that last character was actually harder that I thought. I like the idea of the puzzle once I got it, but I don't get the hint on the bottom right.
I only got the hint in the bottom left after reading this thread, but I thought it was referring to this week's code, not last week's (which I don't know if I have any more).
Any hints on how to understand the bottom right hint?
I have a series of numbers where the last 4 ones can converted to "13AR", but I don't get the method to find the keyword. And what's the missing last character you are talking about?
Finally got it, but somewhat delayed by having to actually do other stuff today such as going to work. :-)
I still have no clue what the thing on the bottom right is. Oh never mind I see it now. That's remarkably more obscure than the actual code.
And you are actually top 20, Congrats!
I think that we are at the same point solving the puzzle. The keyword I get based on the series of numbers just doesn't make any sense. I guess I am missing something. 😅
Thanks for the hints
None of the above. In fact the keyword isn't any of the words that appear in the image.
I think I found the last part and the keyword, but if so really stuck on the first part.
Please correct your two posts.
You use "inexpensive" instead of "inexpressive"
Okaaaay, that's why I couldn't get the keyword.
