    Re: Dark agents who are in need of assistance

    Hello,

    Penni, not bad questions at all.

    * If you're at the point of the hhv quest in which you are supposed to enter your badge ID, you must find a way to get that ID from the badge, and then simply type the whole thing into the daemon
    * The linked pastebin is indeed gone -- it was a piece of the history of the game that was only relevant to the portion that took place during DefCon 22
    * The Morse code quest has been updated so it can now be completed entirely online -- there is a link to a relevant video of the object that was present at the con
    * I believe the ASL quest was always capable of being completed entirely online -- if I am mistaken about this, our team can work to try to make sure that it is

    Thank you for the questions, and have fun in the DarkNet!

    This is most likely a really dumb questio, but how do i send my badge id to the daemon? also the daemon links to a pastebin that isnt there anymore.

    are we still able to do any of the quests that were at the con itself ? like the morse code or asl?

    We'll be posting the design files and BOM. My goal is to have a easy way you can order the board and parts.

    I got my code and got the other code. Still puzzling out those flag letters and code snippet though. . .

    I do apologize to stuck agents out in the field -- we're working hard on the contest that will go live for the con. But we will get back to you on these questions! Just be patient with us for the next uhm, eleventy six hours.

    Stuck too. Am I supposed to have received a PM here? Or should I be looking around for clues in the thread? The naval signal flags lead me nowheres.

    I was wondering if I could get some help with what comes after /1434/, as I've tried the white letters and everything else I could think of. Where do I need to be looking?

    After decoding the ceaser cypher you need to answer the plaintext question. I read the book last year as a result of last year's DarkNet and it's a great read for the plane.

    Man, I was just messing around with the website. Guess I should go a)drop my name on the agent list and b)pull the book down on my kindle and read it on the plane.

    That was fun. I haven't messed around with steganography in a while! Thanks :)

    Hello, ButterSnatcher,

    Check the linked story for the right link to perform the stego (look around, be watchful). When considering what password to try, consider significant names from the story. The output will not be a hash, but rather, something understandable.

    Take care, and good luck.

    Without giving away too much i found something that looks like a hash of some sort but doesn't seem to work and can't figure out what to do with it. Hint ?
