Scavenger Hunt

Hmmm... So I'm completely befuddled on the very first hurdle in Flooble's "scavanger" hunt (http://flooble.com/scav). Do I have to be a major league hacker? Do I have to know PHP? Oh well, I'm not looking for any actual answers, more like a "it's easier than you think, stupid! Why don't you use your brain for once??" or something along those lines... Anyone here solved the puzzles?

Re: Scavenger Hunt

I wish we could edit posts. That way it wouldn't look like I was making fun of Levik's spelling of "scavenger" by my putting it in quotes and then spelling it wrong myself...

Re: Scavenger Hunt

I already saw the code Sam mentioned, and I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the hunt, but I still can't figure out what to use it for. I hope it doesn't involve more html knowledge, because I had to research to figure out how to get to the source.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

I found that when I log off the Scavenger hunt, I also log off Flooble, and when I log back on to Flooble, I log back onto the scavenger hunt. Since I normally check off the remember me button, I'm gonna be logged onto the hunt the whole time. That means I'll probably have a longer time finishing the challenges than Sam on challenge 2. I wonder if the computer recognized my username or something. Or maybe it's the cookies. Oh well, not like the time matters...

2003-11-03 19:23:30
Re: Scavenger Hunt

OK, gang, let's be more careful about spoilers. (I already had to delete one)

And since now the first person to finish all the challenges will get a free flooble T-shirt (see the game page for details) that should spur you guys on to try a little harder ;)

I am thinking that if this proves popular, we will enable additional "trails" of challenges, perhaps even user-submitted ones.

Sam
2003-11-03 23:09:42
Re: Scavenger Hunt

Yes yes indeed. My apologies for bringing up something that would obviously start to generate spoilers. I need to be more careful with my tongue in future (some say I should start to use my fingers for typing, but pshaw...).
Multiple trails seems like a good idea, though. It's a bore to get stuck on one and not be able to go anywhere (wretched challange four...).

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Damn you, Challenge 4! You will be the bane of my procrastination. How am I supposed to avoid study when I can't even get past that level.

Levik,
Is there any way to run some sort of Scav forum, with some tips (NOT spoilers)? Maybe divided up into challenge levels. It's just REALLY annoying to be stuck on a challenge and have absolutely no idea how to get through it. When, just maybe, a little prodding it the right direction by a fellow Floobler (hey, I like that word!) could get you going.

levik

Re: Scavenger Hunt

My tip for challenge 4 is that in my experience, it's harder on the users on Internet Explorer than other browsers.

Err.. I don't see how that's helpful at all, Victor. Though I didn't read the whole column, I did glance thorough the table of contents, and the topics discussed are far more in depth than what is required for challenge 4.

To solve it you need to know the most basic Javascript, as well as how it can be included into a page.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

It looks like Silverknight just went right up those challenges after you added the free t-shirt. I didn't know Flooble had t-shirts! That's so cool! Unfortunately, I have internet explorer. I was having trouble doing something on challenge 4, and at first I thought it was just because I was doing it wrong or something. Well, I always have that other browser...

I don't think lo0ol is even a member of this site :)

He asked me for a hint to challenge 1 a couple of weeks back on a webmaster forum. Now I almost wish I hadn't given it to him :) Well, now he gets the t-shirt, so the prize is gone. But at least we know that the game is beatable with no prior knowledge.

This is what lo0ol emailed me:
Egad that last challenge took me forever. I was going into Photoshop, inverting things, frantically working in NotePad... made it more complicated than it needed to be. :)

Sam
2003-11-07 14:21:28
Re: Scavenger Hunt

Rats, challenge 8 was the last one? So near and yet so far! Goodbye, sweet t-shirt! I'll miss you!

Nah, just kidding. Some of us started this puzzle long before any of you young 'uns needed to be bribed with such worldly treasures (about a day before, to be precise)... The thrill of the chase was enough for me!

I'd challenge SilverKnight and DJ for first over the last hurdle, but I expect that they have far more time that me to work on it than me... It's not because I'm not good enough, I swear - it's a time issue. Just time!

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Well... I must admit that I sure am lucky that my full time employer gives me all the time I want to surf the web!

Actually, I asked Levik to set up the system to e-mail and page me every time a new problem is posted. That way I can generally get to them before anyone else. It sure is helpful! Thanks again Levik!

Re: Scavenger Hunt

I did challenges 1, 2 and 3 relatively quickly, but I am stumped as I know virtually nothing about javascript. The source gave up
<script language=\"javascript\" src=\"tra1ler23?challenge=4&page=start\"><script>, as you probably know, but I have no idea where to start on looking at it. I typed it into the url, and it says "Internet explorer is unable to download...etc". Is it just me? Is this because something's been closed down? I would hate to give up now. A small hint at how it's harder in IE wouldn't go amiss.

Tristan

Re: Scavenger Hunt

I don't really have any other browser, so i'm trying to use real one player as one :S... Will that work?

The URL I am entering is

http://www.flooble.com/scav/function()tra1ler23?challenge=4&page=start

I have also tried

javascript:tra1ler23?challenge=4&page=start

and others.

I als found this script somewhere (I forget where):
<HTML><SCRIPT LANGUAGE=javascript>var __w=tra1ler23?challenge=4&page=end;if(__w!=null)document.write(__w);<SCRIPT><HTML>

What do I have to do??

Sam
2004-09-27 08:04:57
Re: Scavenger Hunt

My guess is that your Real player browser won't work either, but I've never heard of it, so I'm not certain.

I know #4 can be solved using Netscape, because that's what I used before, and assume that it can be solved on Mozilla Firefox. Both are free, and highly recommended alternatives to the buggy, vurnerable & worm-ridden IE (not that I'm biased, I swear). Mozilla's browser is especially recommended.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Ok. I have tried other browsers, and I get a source message (replacing "start" with "end") that says: document.write("your goal is synonymous...").
I've tried typing in "synonymous", and other synonyms of "end". Am I on the right track? vaguely? Is it something synonymous with "document.write"?

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Blast - now you've got me interested in it again. Sheesh.

I'm still as stuck as ever on #8. There are a couple possible clues in there: the page title, the font, the possible letter you see if you look at the colors "another way"... but I can't fit these pieces together.

I've tried bringing the page into my own editor (ie notebook) so that I can make it more like the page title, but that gets me nowhere.

Sigh...

Challenge 7
It doesn't look like anyone has asked any questions about this challenge. Perhaps noone else has found it difficult. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone could give me some hints.

I found the message in the problem that is on the page, but I don't know what the DOTmac has to do with anything. The messag mentions that the colors are familiar, but does that relate to the solution.

Can anyone help? thanks.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

So, coming back the the scavenger hunt after a long time I find that I am no further on challenge eight than I was... jeeze, a year and a half ago (has it been so long?!?).

Supposedly about five people have passed it, and they all talk about how wonderful it is, and about how all you have to do is *think*, and blah blah blah blah blah.

I'M STUCK!

Are any of you mythical 8-solvers still around? Anyone want to help a poor lonely scholar who's been on this site too long and has grown old and tired? Anyone who hasn't solved come up with revelations that might benifit from teamwork?

***TOGETHER*** we can crack this thing! Or... you can give me a hint and I can go solve it myself. Either way, the result's the same. And I've got an email address listed...

Re: Scavenger Hunt

It's sort of hard to remember challenge 8, and I'd have to go through all the challenges to see it again.

From what I remember, the real solution was much simpler than most of the things I tried. If you find yourself taking doing something like converting colors to letters and then rotating the alphabet (as I tried) then tell yourself to turn around!

The hints I have now:

one picture is worth up to a thousand words.gif
maybe this has to do with a U (YOU should be HERE...U===HERE) ÁBut I don't see a U, unless in the name of the picture (See hint 2), but exchanging the U there doesn't seem to help.

look at the name of the image

how red green and blue work together, but sometimes you just need to draw it out on paper

If you are tearing your hair out over the 8th challenge, take it from me; You'll be glad you figured this one out yourself. Just give it some time, and don't try to overcomplicate things. Puzzles this clever and challenging don't come around every day.

Re: Scavenger Hunt

Joe, no need to post twice, I'll help.

Send me an email, and be sure to tell me what you've tried so far. Saying "I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO! I'VE TRIED EVERYTHING! I CAN'T GET IT!" will not help at all. If you don't tell me what you've already done, I can't help you. You're probably close to the answer, but not quite there.

I FINALLY got past challenge 2!!!!! Ch. 3 was easy, and now I need help on 4. Please don't just give me the hint "Doesn't work on IE." I got the javascript source, but don't know what to do from there.
