Extra One For Every One

[quote][b]PUZZLE SOLVED![/b] Winner: T32429384J09RJ32HFBOY!!![/quote] [quote][b][u]Solution:[/u][/b][/quote][quote]The first thing you need to realize is that there are three different parts to this puzzle. Part the first is the number set. It's (obviously) located on the left in order going from top to bottom. The second bit is the clues. They're located on the right hand side, going downward in ascending order (1-5). Finally, from the 4th clue, you could tell that you had to go to my sig, click on the link entitled "Key", and utilized the alphanumeric template later in the puzzle. Next, the clues. The first one refers to a phrase in Romeo & Juliet that reads "What's in a name?" This refers to the name of the thread: "Extra One For Every One". I know this was a little obscure, but it refers to the fact that there has been a value of "one" added to "every one" digit of the number set. I tried to fix this by telling people that the first clue helps you figure out [u]what has been done[/u] to the number set so that people didn't accidentally go through the trouble of ADDING one to every digit, getting even further from the answer. Eventually I found someone who posted numbers from the data set and just corrected them to what the converted numbers would be. Sorry 'bout that one. Once someone figures out that the numbers are in ASCII format, you can proceed to the next clue, "Plain". This refers to the fact that you need to convert the ASCII to Plain Text. As per the next clue, the crayon box, each number "sentence" translates to a group of hexidecimal codes, all of which translate to different colors on the alphanumeric key. You can figure out that you need to use the key in the final step by the last clue being... well... a key. Each character, in order, if done correctly, hopefully, to: d e e J ' s _ g a M e R T a g ? The answer to that question? DeeJ BNG[/quote] I've been partially commissioned by DeeJ to do this week's MailSack Challenge, and I've been working on it for a while now. I'm really, really hoping there's no mistakes in it, but I'm not MissingLink so it's a distinct possibility. Be gentle. Hopefully I can entertain you guys a little while DeeJ hangs on your each and every inquisition. [url]http://i.imgur.com/1nhlx.jpg[/url] e: I can't help but feel this challenge suffers from a severe lack of incentive... Not so sure how well the whole "create your own thread" thing went... Oh well. Worth a shot. e2: From page 3 of the thread:[quote]All I can say without being terribly helpful is that utilizing first clue (the R&J one) will give you a hint to what it is that will tell you what has been done to the numbers to make them unhelpful in their present state.[/quote] © [Edited on 11.19.2012 4:56 PM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] T1B3R7uMB0YXVI Step 2: "Extra One For Every One" implies there's a spare number. Step 3; Use the remaining number left over for the Color value. (I believe it's hex code? Or is it ASC II?) [/quote] ASCII is a mapping between characters and numbers; every number from 1 to 127 is designated to v[url=http://www.asciitable.com/]represent a character[/url]. After subtracting 11 from all the numbers in the picture (that's clue #2), each number represents one ASCII character. (E.g., 48 is '0', 70 is 'F'.) It just happens that Crazzy chose the numbers that represent hexadecimal digits (i.e. the characters 0-9 and A-F). Once we had the hexidecimal characters, just group them in sets of six to get the standard RGB representation of colors. Figure out which colors draw what picture based on Crazzy's key, and that spells out the final question. [Edited on 11.19.2012 1:16 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] T1B3R7uMB0YXVI[/quote] I think it would involve hiding them in links to sites Bungie has linked us in the past. Obviously Im not loaded so only a few, and some hard riddles or coding challenges for those smart people!! (Coding involving processing or something similar).

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wikked Navajoe How could this make any sense at all to anyone is beyond me.[/quote] Step 1; Finding the quote "What's in the name" from Romeo and Juliet book. Step 2: "Extra One For Every One" implies there's a spare number. Step 3; Use the remaining number left over for the Color value. (I believe it's hex code? Or is it ASC II?) Step 4; The picture below the Crayons is a picture diagram indicating the key to the puzzle is located in crazzySnipe's signature. The baby whose holding the sniper rifle is suppose to be an image of Crazzy's profile, thus the avatar emblem on his hat. Step 5; Using the color found from generating those number. We use the key image to indicate what letter we're suppose to generate from those color we found. Step 6; Once you complete the code, it should say "Dee'S_GaMeTaG?" - This is another question that we're suppose to answer. Step 7; The answer is "DeeJ BNG" [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] cameo_cream If I do this..... I may hide MS points somewhere for you guys to find! Muhahahahaha!!! And it would involve classy riddles, for classy people. None of you swagger kids would understand.[/quote]Be sure that the question can't be easily be found from google. That's the hard part.

Off to a rough start. It would be clear if you find a quote that said "What's in the subject title". [/quote]Inside joke for the Bnet community, to be honest. Not a very well known one, I think.
