I don’t know. We can never be sure… There was always some noise at each step.

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.

The fourth one may be steganography

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=”.

I got the medium and the hard by loading the savefile (no replay). Maybe there is a delay. :)

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

Dunno if the RNG has a big influence for the final boss as I only tried once, but I beat it on my first try with full lives with all lv4 gold upgrades (but all gems skills were maxed). I tried to stun the boss as much as possible. It was close, and sometimes the game is nearly unplayable due to massive lag spikes X-/

Topic: Kongregate / Upcoming Badges!

I didn’t think it was hard, but then this is really not my first puzzle-solving game. For example, I didn’t have to use any external tool for the last level with 6 computers, so I am maybe biaised. I have no objections for either medium or hard. Maybe we can see if greg has trouble or not.

I also have no problem with the newspaper search (in fact I really enjoyed that), but Bible references are more tricky. I directly found the correct reference, but a friend of mine that was also playing the game could not find the correct password because he got tons of other Bible versions and thus not the correct ending word… Maybe several passwords could be accepted for that one, dunno if there is a good solution…

Anyway, I noticed today that oO is receiving main page promotion, which is pretty cool and I assume bodes well for the possibility of badges in its future. Incidentally, the rating is on the correct side of the 3.75 divide again. It still doesn’t have visible API; is that coming by any chance?


I just don’t see Oo getting badges for some reason, probably due to a delay in the dev adding api.

Seems that API is now in place.

Topic: Kongregate / [How To] Get Kongregate Arcade to work on PC

Is this still working? I can install Flash and Kong App but when I start a game I only have a black screen, with no message/crash.

Edit: Yes, I have the same thing as Lloyd_Majere. He hadn’t bumped yet when I began writing this message. Talk about a coincidence…

Maybe Bluestacks upgraded their Android version and we need an older version of Bluestacks?

Topic: Kongregate / missing achivement reports - feedback

Of course a copy of the ticket would be really nice, especially if you screw up something in the report :)
At least so you don’t have to keep a copy of the screenshots “just to be sure” until the badge is awarded.

But… I am already receiving an automatic email each time they fix the problem (along with the “Sorry with the mixup!…” automatic announcement), so I’m not sure what you’re talking about for the second email “when the problem is resolved” :? Maybe check your account settings for email notifications?

Hi Arcanmster!
Sorry for the mixup! Your missing Rise to Power for BloodRealm Mobile has just been awarded to your account. Cheers!

Report submitted on Jul 6, so it should still work as usual. Maybe they are simply busy.

The cache is kinda funny, I haven’t played Creeper World 3 (yet), so two unearned badges, and only one of them has the Unity logo here. xD

Topic: Technical Support / Recently broken: Opening badge of the day in new tab

I’ve just tested several of those problematic links on Google Chrome and IE. Right-click does open the contextual menu each time, but middle-click still opens the link (each time) in the same tab instead of a new tab. So half of it is working! (or half of it is broken, depending on your mood…)

Topic: Technical Support / Recently broken: Opening badge of the day in new tab

Achievement menu, /badges, /recommended: Problem confirmed.

Home page, in the “featured games” box:
- Links related to BOTD on the kongpanion subpage are working correctly

Home page, in the “trending” panel:
- Today’s 2x points: the link on the image works correctly (I’ve already earned the BOTD if it matters)
- Popular: the link on the image and the link on the game’s name both have the issue (opens in the same tab)
- Comment: same issue as “Popular”

Home page, in the “recommended badges” panel:
- BOTD links work correctly, both on badge name and game name.

In the profile page, kongpanion panel, the links in the calendar (“play now to get a head start”) do work correctly.

Topic: Technical Support / Newly added badges don't appear

Hi,

Just to say that things have changed a little bit here (Belgium, 0:25 local time UTC+2) – the chat tab is still showing high score tables, but its title is now “Achievements” and not “High Scores”. The usual link to switch between both is not there. The two badges of Pixelo are now shown in the right panel under the game, but they are not (yet) earnable.

It’s quite funny to see a mix between high scores and achievements :) I’ll check again later. I’m not in a hurry.

(Using Kong English, Firefox/Chrome/IE are all showing the same thing)
