Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

To be fair I didn’t get a single black screen /freeze in Decision 3 (I did in Decision 2). Neither did I rate it 5/5 but that’s because IMO a game should be about content and not grinding.

And we should all know that Strikeforce Shitty 2 is a really well-designed game. After all, it has a huuuge number of plays which is hard evidence. Moreover, as said in the description, we can enjoy “Over 6 hours of gameplay”. Though I’m still wondering whether he’s missing a digit in this sentence.

So, next badge?

Prince of Persia doesn’t “really” count given that the badges were converted to points (and the badges do not appear on the profile), so 827 easy badges.

Topic: Technical Support / Kongpanion didn't earned(solved)

Do we really need to send a report (that would be a lot of reports) or are you already working on an automated mass fix?

I must be missing something here. The newsletter shows 3 badges that will be selected during the week, but not the one on Monday?

“too quickly”? Is there a way to know which game it will be before midnight?

Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / 1.28.07 Update Notes

I just updated and fortunately I have no crash. I was running the last version before the first Valentin update. Before updating, I have backed up the old .apk file (and all my datafiles if they were to be also updated) “just to be sure”. Would the .apk file be useful for those that are crashing or are the datafiles corrupted/incompatible?

Topic: Little Alchemist Mobile / Event Help: Anna the Huntress

My portal says “2 days left”, does that mean I have “between 48h and 72h left” or “between 24h and 48h left”? I’m level 27 and stuck at the f# tier 17 :-/

Maybe it would be a good idea to have the special award appear somewhere on the kongpanions page and not only hidden in the award list?

Solution of riddle 2:

- First, shout-out to Siderite for all his work, especially for this intriguing first line #00
- And to ErikCorry for:

OK kids, listen up
[19:21] First byte decoded is 37
[19:21] key char on first line is “c”
[19:21] xor those together you get “T”
[19:21] Now check the other version of the data
[19:22] First byte is 26
[19:22] key char on first line of old data is “r”
[19:22] Xor them together you get “T”

- The only useful data is line #00, and the sequence of letters after all the =’s
- Line #00, after base64-decoding, has 100 bytes, and the sequence of letters has also 100 bytes. XOR them.
- ASCII result is “The password for the riddle is magical followed by the 5th letter of the alphabet and the number six”

Hi guys, I’m back. The answer of the #5 for those who want it:

  1. TXT – Do a DNS lookup on mu.database.studiocime.com, look at the TXT record: the content is “/mucomplex-riddle.jpg”
  2. The image – Download the image at http://mu.database.studiocime.com/mucomplex-riddle.jpg, look at the content of the file. The bytes, not the image itself. At the end you find the following byte sequence: 61 00 57 00 35 00 6A 00 63 00 6D 00 56 00 6B 00 61 00 57 00 4A 00 73 00 5A 00 53 00 42 00 6B 00 62 00 32 00 00 39 00 79 00. This is strange because all non-zero values are in the ASCII alphanumerical range. 61 57 35 6A 63 6D 56 6B 61 57 4A 73 5A 53 42 6B 62 32 39 79 in ASCII is “aW5jcmVkaWJsZSBkb29y”.
  3. The code – Treat aW5jcmVkaWJsZSBkb29y as a base64-encoded string, decode it, you get the answer: “incredible door”

One down, four to go :)

Should I post the solution or do you prefer to find the remaining steps by yourselves and have the satisfaction to solve the riddle? Or maybe I can post a rot13’ed version to avoid spoiling.

There was a problem with Riddle 5, a file was missing. This is now fixed, and everything should work as expected.

Sorry for the inconvienience.

Good luck.

For the first one, the colors they’ve chosen tell me that we should look at it in HSL or HSV space and not RGB. I’m pretty sure the saturation and lightness/value are constant and only the hue is changing. We should be able to something with the hue values (remember they are angles so it “wraps” around).

Let’s see…

113° 16° 113° [empty] 160° 38° 160° [empty] 172° 61° 172° 113° 51° 38° 0°
[empty] [empty] 315° 172° 51° 172° 315° [special] 172° 61° 172° 113° 51° 38° 0°

Yeah, it works… except for #ff5555

The special one (#ff5555) has hue 0° but HSV saturation is only 2/3 (66.7%) instead of 100%. All values are 100%
In HSL, saturations are at 100%, lightnesses are (I think, didn’t check) at 50% except for the special one which is at 2/3

(Can someone check my results, I did it very quickly, have to work…)

Topic: Kongregate / Broken badges

AFAIK these badges never worked. I got the badges on July and they were already broken. I got the badges by submitting the missing badge report from the app (no screenshot required). Other players I talked to about that did the same.

For #2 I suppose you “just” have to telnet thalie, get the 100 base64 strings, and decode them… But I doubt these ones will be as simple as the “OgUMGU0EHk0ZBQwZTQMCBB4ITSwqLCQjUgo=” one. I’m busy at work, cannot investigate this now.

PS- there seems to be an additional letter each time, just like the “g” with “OgUMGU0EHk0ZBQwZTQMCBB4ITSwqLCQjUgo=”.
