I've compared the filename on the latest puzzle with the characters in the puzzle. My eyesight isn't what it used to be so I will need some help. I'm identifying 11 unique characters, rotated or not. The filename is 9 characters long. I was hoping that the filename letters somehow corresponded to the symbols.

Regarding the latest one, could the font have something to do with Math symbols?

There is one that comes up atleast 5 times that resembles the Math symbol for Greater than: >

Also one that looks like Pi without the flicks/ curls that is also inverted and one or two with sections missing that could fall under the Math symbols for Product and Coproduct.

U with completely flat corners (instead of the rounded corners) which could be Binary Square Cup symbol and the ones that look like normal U could be just cup symbols.

I have to head out, but if anyone wants to follow through with this possibility then feel free here is a link to some characters.

Well done for solving the 'dots' puzzles, got a headache just following you guys on that one.

The latest one seems interesting, can anyone make out the 'fuzzy' letters at the end, is there relevancy that they are fuzzy?

Some do look like Math symbols but others look like some kind of ancient alphabet, looking forward to sussing this one out.

Peace

I agree. Yes, some are similar to math symbols, Pi and what not, but there are too many others that don't fit that bill. I tried to print the image; don't bother, you can't see half of it. It could just be my printer

We haven't solved the "dots" puzzle that I know of.

The new one looks like the same type of code as the one in Kellter's Sig just susing different symbols?

Groups of four with the symbols being rotated for each new letter.

Sorry to interrupt, but if someone has time, could they send me a U2U to explain how the ATS/BTS points thing works. I'm new here, so I'm not really sure where everything is just yet. Thanks.

We now return to the game, already in progress.

Yeah, there should be a thread on the board and questions forum as they have recently changed it to my knowledge.

I think that also it could well be symbolic text (Kelters border sinature) that needs deciphering as I have checked about 20-30 ancient alphabets and have not come up with anything similar as of yet.

This is an ATTEMPT to clear up the first line of blurry text. I wouldn't take this as absolute fact unless someone else confirms it.

Ok, well I am going to be late but I couldn't head off without posting this just so I can stop being preoccupied with it. I haven't got it finished yet as there are some symbols yet to "Identify or link to a Math/Equation Symbol" and some Symbols yet to add. But meh



Just google Image some of the names or go to the fileformat site I linked earlier and do a find on the name.

Here's the solution for the latest puzzle:


ABCDEFG HIEA GCJMI MLBDENOA PNDPFHPGO RMBF TEFPC QROAHEBF

SOLVING THIS GLYPH PROVIDES ADVANTAGE UPON FINAL QUESTION

It was a simple letter substitution cipher like some of the previous puzzles.

Nicely done, thanks for posting the key code too. Looks like it will come in handy

Good going Barbadel!

And more evidence that 8/8/08 is the final question date, the game has begun, and this isn't just warm-up... the 'grand conspiracy of our time'...

As to what the advantage is, notice that the glyphs in this puzzle are rotations of one another. The various rotations (0', 90', 180', 270') could form a cycle. So, as well as solving the cryptogram, the translation key could establish sets of letters, eg, A -> B -> C ->D, back ->A that can be cyclically rotated in the final puzzle...

Bloody hell, this is going over my head a little. Its addictive and quite enlightening too. Glad im in on the ride, even though some of your are going way too fast!

Peace

I still dunno about the 8th being the final question date....

What happened to the "10 coded questions" and "most of the questions require both an answer and ats thread id"?

So far we've only used one thread id....right?

Hmm good point; just a theory of mine. And, 10 new questions starting 8/8 would mean lots more head-scratching fun, so I'm rooting for that, too!

Could you please share how you did this? How did you figure out the original substitution?
