  2. First I have to say I really love this puzzle! I can see you invested a lot of your time in creating it!
    I managed to solve some of the puzzles, but I am still working on the rest of it :D
    Thank you very much for the riddles!

  3. Finished it all and it was really fun. I think I just spent an hour working on it without realizing it :p. I don't want either of the prizes though so everyone can keep going.

  7. Since most people seem to be struggling with it, I will offer some incentive. Post any progress you make. I will give 1k to anyone who solves part of it or figures out an important clue.
  8. Well, all the ?s in the OP give you this string of letters:

  10. Bottom post says
    Code:
    UGBOWOBDLJOOOB
    iALRoe pYOoYU PRUElaodhY ??
    =RpO0Tb171
    Which would be
    Code:
    Good job
    Are you ready?
    
    Rot11
    I assume this means you have to use either a rot 11 decrypt or a rot 15 encrypt (same thing) on something else to get the next clue. Doing rot 15 on the next post yields
    Code:
    XlmwMwKsmrkXsFiQsviHmjjmgypxJvsqRsaSr
    XmqiJsvWsqiJyr
    VSX3
    XLIRFEWI wmbxcJSyV
    Which I'm unable to make any sense of.

    EDIT - The beginning of the second post is "ctmi?" which if you use line skipping and rot 11 decryption would be "XI?". Roman numeral "11?". I'm not sure what that means or if that's even part of this or if it's just a coincidence but it's there.

  11. Rot 11 encrypting the second post gives

  12. Unfortunately unless somebody can guess what this means, it looks like compression artifacting pixelated this small text beyond legibility. Whatever it says is what you have to do to this base 64 cypher.
    Code:
    ACCTAGGA TTGT TTCCT TAT CAT T TCCT TATTG TTT ATGACA GTACAG A AAAC T GACAAC T AT GT ACAT AGAA CAAGT AGTTA TCAA AT T AG AAA TTT GTCAG A TCT TCATGAAGTGCA TTGT T CCGTTCTCGAA[/IMG]
    All I'm able to make out is that
    Code:
    A = dot [something]
    T = [something]
    [something] C and G
    The rest is illegible due to either imgur's or file format's compression.

  13. A = dot
    T = dash

  14. Thanks, now we just need to know what C and G are.

    EDIT - I tried using a low tolerance brush to attempt and salvage the compression artifacting. Unfortunately, it's still illegible.

    EDIT - Tried an even lower tolerance brush (lowest Photoshop has) and removed anti aliasing. Still illegible.

  15. I can work on cleaning up the artifacts and try to figure it out.

  16. The wording on the solar panel says:
    You thought it would be this easy? Look a little closer.
    The wording on the arrow says:
    Good job. The next post is simple: base (illegible) 1

    [EDIT]
    Ignore C and G

    This is morse

  17. Thanks, we're past that though :p

    UPDATE - We're currently trying to salvage the compression artifacts from this image

    The text I underlined in red is the only text left to figure out. The bottom right says "C and G". Pretty useless though if we can't figure out what C and G are.

  19. Rythmically seems to have figured it out
