Radios

Dr. Maxis: Where are they? They should have arrived by now.

Dr. Monty: Oh Maxis, you worry too much. In fact, aside from worrying, what do you do these days? Far as I can tell, you just repeat whatever I say in radio messages! No offense, of course, it's important to feel relevant.  Big fan of what you do.

Dr. Maxis: Look, they're here!

Dr. Monty: Well well well, sometimes free will does work out.  Look at how he's used it, trying to right wrongs instead of skulking about in the house talking into a microphone.

*Sirens sound*

Dr. Maxis: Put the toys away children. Make sure the windows are locked before you come down to the basement.

Dr. Monty: Good call on the windows there, Max. This whole process can get a bit... messy.

 

Wisps

Spoiler

Dr. Monty

 

In retrospect, it wasn't the best idea to leave the most powerful artifact in this, or any other dimension, just lying on the fucking table! But in all fairness, Maxis was a bit of a wild card. I mean you remember, he was actually just a little drone the last time you saw him. Anyway, he's in the Summoning Key now, and I know how we're gonna get him out.

________

Okay, I think I've found a way to talk to you. Given all of the shit hitting the fan, there's not much I can do except give you a bit of encouragement. How about I give you some facts.. little ones.. quick ones.. fun ones.. It'll be good for morale.

________

Right, here we go. It's a bit like the news, this.. I mean reading it, on television.. Sorry, I-I-I'm rambling. You should see what the Shadowman's doing back here aha, okay? Apparently, Richtofen's got a problem with nuts. Make of that what you will.

________

If anything else, I should probably clarify. This. Is. It. The Aether. The Infinite. Otherwise known as Agartha. Or is Ar-gar-tha? Well whatever way you slice it, or spell it, it's the reality beyond. Beyond the world you know. Beyond your perception. Just so we're clear, I'm absolutely not talking about death, that's a whole other can of worms. Speaking of which, you know how people say when you cut a worm in half, both parts keep on living? Well, they do! Kind of.. for a bit. But then one of them dies, not sure if it's the ass or the head, but that's the problem with worms! They're a bit short on distinguishing features. Ehh, what was the point I was making?

________

In the beginning, and believe me there was a beginning, everything was in its proper place. Time was linear, just as it should be. But a little thing called Element 115 changed all that. Especially when, what was it again? Oh yes, when Group 935 came along. Once they started messing around with it, they buggered everything up. 115 shouldn't even exist in your dimension! But, nonetheless, here we are! Bloody teleporters.

________

Once Element 115 came along, the Apothicons weren't far behind. Have I mentioned them yet? The Apothicons are beings that feed on energy. Wait, that's an oversimplification. Energy is a rather broad term. It may be better to explain it as the spark of life, the purest form of energy that ever existed. Is that better? Hmm not sure.. sounds a bit hippity-dippity new-agey when I said it out loud. Anyway, this energy, the Apothicons feed on it. They conquer and consume dimensions, it's kind of.. their thing. The ball-crushingly bad thing is that their appetite is ferocious, veracious, insatiable even. They're hungry. Very hungry. Bottom line, if you don't sort shit out, they're going to gobble up this universe just like they gobbled up so many others.

________

The Keepers, an ancient order who've been granted the wisdom to see beyond the limitations of their own realm. Even while the rest of mankind scrabbled around in the dirt, drinking their own piss, the Keepers took the mantle of benevolent watchers. Like the seers and sages of the old world, they could see how the actions of the Apothicons would lead to the destruction of life itself, the keepers have always been here. Much like your good selves, they too were scattered and fragmented across the multiverse. They may have acted erratically but know this, their actions were only ever concerned with the preservation of life itself. Remember what I said before about energy?

 

__________________________________________________________________________

 

The Shadowman

 

Your sins serve only as an invitation... an invitation to an evil beyond your imagination. I will lead the way. I will show you the path. Only through me, the Shadowman, will you find your redemption.

________

You do realize that he's manipulated you? That's what he does. Dr. Monty is just one of the many names he's been known by. The Great Dragon, The Beast.. is this ringing any bells? Beelzebub? Lucifer? Satan? The Devil?

________

He's not even a real doctor.. I would know. I know what you did Richtofen! I know you found the Kronorium. You have suffered long enough. Why do you not embrace the cruel warmth of the Apothicons? All your pain, all your suffering, could be at an end. That is what you want, isn't it?

________

Do you not see the power Dr. Monty holds over you? Do you not see you're being deceived? I can help you! Only through me can you find salvation!

________

You do know Richtofen is a friend of mine, now I say friend, but really he's so much more than that. At one point, I almost considered him my apprentice. I mean, he did stab my reported friend, and steal the summoning key. At one point he did everything I told him to. I keep hoping he will remember the promise he made to me, so long ago.

I am the last of us but I will be joining you soon my friends-cough, cough-death is near. I hope what we have done doesn't come back to bite this universe in the ass. Thank god we will all be gone because If Monty ever found this place, we would have been in a world of shit. Maybe now with us all gone, the children will truly be safe. -D

Reversed and basic substitution. Probably not the 'hard' ciphers we were told about...

I've transcribed the 3 ciphers we currently have. There are probably typos, but anyways, I'll be uploading that when I get home from class so everyone can take a look. One is Hex, another is Hex that can be translated to B64, and the last one is B64.

I think there's a cipher in the Origins area, on a table after the buying door to the mound.

I believe @Lizizadolphin and @Rissole25 got that one! I've heard there's another one in the Origins area, but no one who's looked has found it.

There's a radio near the Corruption Engine in the Verrückt area like the COTD radio (hidden in vegetation). It's located near the stairs (on the right if you climb them, on the left if you walk down). You need an explosive to activate it. I don't remember who's talking or what they talk about, sorry.

These 2 ciphers are EXACTLY the same cipher, it's just that the one inside the bunker area is flipped horizontally and turned 180 degrees... odd.

A question To our it guys @WaterKH @NaBrZHunter @oxin8 @Tac @Lizizadolphin

I Read something about base64 endcoded/decoded To Pictures... does this mean we could get pictures out of our ciphers?

I understand only gibberish while trying To learn about how this Works...

 

 

Edit (2)

 

So i checked the cipher Found in Origins (Start with 83...)

 

Could be Double Encrypted.. Transposition and hex 

Or a hash (sha md5 etc)

 

I just Transcript the first three Lines but there are some Lines with 6 Letters and Maybe there is some punctuation between the Lines... It could be Amsco+ hex... the key for amsco could be 30957298 (arcade Ticket)

I had actually discussed the base64 cipher (at least TheGiant) being either an image or something along those lines with them but I don't understand enough about it to actually say, would be neat if it wound up like that.

Hopefully I can explain this decently enough... here goes... (I'm also oversimplifying some things but you might not notice, lol)

 

So in the past, most(some?) of the time we see base64 for a cipher, we decode it from base64 into ASCII and that would yield a message right there.

Using: https://www.base64decode.org/

From: U3VwZXJTZWNyZXRDaXBoZXJNZXNzYWdl

To: SuperSecretCipherMessage

 

While that does work, it's not what base64 is most commonly used for. When you base64 encode something, it only uses a character set of visible characters: a-zA-Z0-9, and a few others. When you're dealing with computer data, data is stored as bytes. A single byte is a value between 0 and 255. In ASCII(see http://www.asciitable.com/), some of the corresponding characters for those values are known as control characters. Control characters are things like "tab", "carriage return", or "line feed". If you're in notepad and you hit "tab", the tab you inserted is stored in the data as a control character(value 9 in the ascii table linked). The point I'm getting at is that some characters are not visible in the 0 to 255 range.

 

So, if you're storing data as bytes, it doesn't really matter if the character is visible or not but if you wanted to make it human readable, you wouldn't use ASCII. Instead, you'd want to use something that limits the character set to visible characters like base2(binary) or base10(decimal) or base16(hex) or base64. If you're wondering why a control character would be in the solved cipher message: it wouldn't. But if you used some form of encryption, the encrypted data may end up in the control character range.

 

For example:

Original text: SecretMessage

In base10(comma seperated): 83,101,99,114,101,116,77,101,115,115,97,103,101

If you wanted to take the base 10 values of the message and subtract 77(arbitrary number) to encrypt it, the base10 values would be: 6,24,22,37,24,39,0,24,38,38,20,26,24

Now that's actually readable but if you were to display it as ASCII values, you would get(still comma separated): ,,,%,,',,,&,&,,,

Or without the commas: %'&&
If Treyarch just did that, we'd never solve it because we're missing the data. Best we could get from that would be: rtss
But if you took the same encrypted data and displayed it as the following, you could get the correct data from it(commas added):
Base2: 00000110,00011000,00010110,00100101,00011000,00100111,00000000,00011000,00100110,00100110,00010100,00011010,00011000
Base10: 6,24,22,37,24,39,0,24,38,38,20,26,24
Base16: 06,18,16,25,18,27,00,18,26,26,14,1A,18
Base64: BhgWJRgnABgmJhQaGA==
 
So what's the point of all this? Well, the recent ciphers are showing up as either hex(base16) or base64. Instead of thinking that base16 or base64 is part of the encryption, think of them as the container for the actual data. I believe we're getting into modern computing era encryption and the encrypted data wouldn't be properly visible if it was written as ASCII.
 
tl;dr: The new ciphers look like base64 and hex because that's how the data is being represented. We need to decode them from those formats into something else to get the actual cipher data that we'll be decrypting. While I'm pretty sure this is correct, Treyarch could have used this assumption to their advantage to throw us off. There's also the possibility of a transposition throw in the mix before the base64 encode to mess with us.

 

(P.S. Nodded off a few times typing this. Just because I know it, doesn't make it less boring, lol)

I keep semi-yelling at @WaterKH about this: They probably aren't hashes due to what a hash is. A hash, by definition, is a one-way encryption method. The only way to 'decrypt' a hash is to correctly guess the original text and get the hash for that and then confirm that both hashes match.

 

A hash would be a difficult 'cipher' for us but it's really not a cipher. It is possible that Blundell put a hash in as a super hard 'cipher' but it kinda breaks the unwritten agreement that we can actual solve the ciphers.

Thats all Nice and Good but you forgot To answer my question? 

@oxin8

HA! I guess I sorta did. Again, falling asleep over here....

 

The picture thing is a common use of base64 on the internet. You can base64 encode a picture file and then take the resulting text and nest it in an HTML file or a CSS file to be used on a webpage. People mostly do this so the web browser doesn't have to make another call to the server to get a small icon image.

 

If instead of text hidden in the ciphers, Blundell wanted to hide a picture, he could do it and represent it as base64 but the same is true for any file. It could be an exe, a gif, a webpage, a txt file, whatever. There's smart ways to go about figuring it out but assuming it's not text adds tons of possibilities to the chaos we already have.

 

I had the thought that they might be images and I think I've looked at one of the ciphers and it wasn't anything. If you wanted to try for yourself, it looks like you could use  http://www.motobit.com/util/base64-decoder-encoder.asp and choose "decode" and "export to a file", then try opening the file in an image editor(might need to try different extensions).

So, I was taking a look at the Arcade Ticket Cipher last night, and I found something intriguing when I made a brief stab at decoding it. Since the message only contains numbers 1-5, I thought it would make sense to put it through a polybius square. Before I did that I arranged the numbers into rows based on how they looked on the actual ticket in the image. Here are the rows: (Note that I believe a few of the numbers from the above transcript are incorrect after looking at the actual image)

 

1) 142111225311221121212253141153212221221422145322141121142222111153212214221453212121215311
2) 212222215322221421111111111453222111212153222211111121111421222153145321112253111421211111
3) 212211212111222253211414112111531153211421221122212121221453532153141122222214222221112122
4) 111122211121221114111114222121531111145311531453141453221121142222222253532121212121212211
5) 532214145314531411112211142222225322211121212211535314532122212222531422532222212121531421
6) 111111221122145321222111222211211153141121225314111114142222225311532211142221111122222122
7) 212111115314532122221114141421212211141111112114212114211414112114532211142222222222211121
8) 221122111153532122222122145314

 

Then, I put that through an unmixed polybius square, and got a very interesting result:

 

1) DFAGXAGAFFGXDAXFGFGDGDXGDAFDGGAAXFGDGDXFFFFXA
2) FGGFXGGDFAAAADXGFAFFXGGAAAFADFGFXDXFAGXADFFAA
3) FGAFFAGGXFDDAFAXAXFDFGAGFFFGDXXFXDAGGGDGGFAFG
4) AAGFAFGADAADGFFXAADXAXDXDDXGAFDGGGGXXFFFFFFGA
5) XGDDXDXDAAGADGGGXGFAFFGAXXDXFGFGGXDGXGGFFFXDF
6) AAAGAGDXFGFAGGAFAXDAFGXDAADDGGGXAXGADGFAAGGFG
7) FFAAXDXFGGADDDFFGADAAAFDFFDFDDAFDXGADGGGGGFAF
8) GAGAAXXFGGFGDXD

 

All of the letters are A,D,F,G, or X, which makes me believe that the cipher was first encrypted via an ADFGX cipher and then further encrypted using an unmixed polybius square with numbers. Honestly, this is just a theory since I have been unable to figure out where to go from here (not to mention the frustrating memories of trying to figure out the ADFGX cipher from MotD). Also, I should mention that the placement of the 8th row in terms of which columns those letters are in is ambiguous, and I just put it there because it sortof made sense to me. Let me know what you all think :)

 

P.S. Sorry in advance if this has been mentioned before btw
