Not sure what these partial codes look like. The complete replicated QR code that alpha killer put up definitely looked like secret 7 digit code. What do these other ones look like. It could just be a case of you guys sharing codes in PM's. As I said before, there is a ridiculous amount of QR's for one person to do.

The only other thing I've noticed is when you press any node about 80% of the other nodes light up. Has anyone tried doing something with this. Like designing your base so all lights are connected?

Partial is the wrong way for me to say it. :p What I mean is, getting most of the code replicated, then changing other nodes to (luckily/accidentally) produce the value needed to dispense a 64-bit code.

Pressing a node will cause the nodes it can connect to to light up. Similar things happen with the Scanner and net connections, showing the range they cover.

Oh is that what those lights are for :lol:

Yeah, so these other codes when converted return nothing?

Seems like unless you start to index these codes and pictures you're all going to get nowhere and just repeat yourself.

If you look in the reflection of the program library really close and move it around just right it looks like a picture of a face.

I'd really like to see more progress so hopefully this will encourage more sharing. Here is a link to a number of related images. Read the descriptions for it all to make sense and let me know if you have any ideas or want me to clarify. If someone else wants to try this particular pattern, it might help figure out if these results/codes can be replicated. Good luck! :D

Here are the binary codes that go with the three images along with binary-to-text translation. This is just an assumption that they are to be translated. I'm not sure if the sets are in the same order as the images. Starred lines are duplicates.

Set A:
01010111011000011111001101010101
01000100011010000101011001110101*

To text translation:
WaóUDhVu

Set B:
01010111001000011111011001110101
01100100011010000101011001111101

To text translation:
W!öudhV}

Set C:
01010011001000010111011000100101
01000100011010000101011001110101*

To text translation:

Absolutely! We've been stalling for a while.

Not too sure what I can add apart from codes at the mo'. The overlayed image that you posted makes sense. With each image being rotatable, it makes sense that the white spots are where they are. I can also confirm that the centre spot is mute in regards to solving a puzzle, although it may be relevant here of it changes the value needed to return a code.

One thing I can say is that your images were super easy to reproduce in contrast to the Core images. I'm competent at solving these, yet I've never had a single perfect match, and I've only been getting bit codes from misclicks. I'm not sure what conclusion to draw from that however.

The bit codes from your Core codes were the same for me. I'll post my codes tomorrow (I saved them on the PC) but they seem to be following a similar pattern from memory, most of them ending in "Vu".

While typing the codes out, it almost looked like it was gonna say "SaVeFiLe" - I've curiously checked what little info there is in the iOS settings but come back empty. Not sure what's there if you dig deeper. :p

Good luck indeed, hope someone sussed something out!

If anyone would like to discuss this, please join our discord server discord.me/hackersmobile.

We've made quite a bit of progress.

For a list of a couple of dozen scanner binary codes we have discovered, you can go to our google sheets at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0.

Also, did you know that when you find a binary code, you can flip the 4th and 5th or the 7th and 8th lights on an edge and get a different binary code?

Big Break through here with that spreadsheet.

Look like you have to create a QR that produces two codes that say Save File as Luminaar pointed out.

You have 'save' a number of times on that spread sheet, so compare. either top or bottom - left or right should be the same.

Then you just need to create a pattern for 'file' on the other half.
