Announcement   Announcement : Help needed!
   posted by Lazi on 1-Apr-2008 10:26:50 (4836 reads)
Our secret agent comrade Ostrovich has succesfully caught a secret message from Amiga Inc.

Unfortunately the message is heavily encrypted and we do not have the computing power to
unscramble it before the information will self destruct.


We quickly developed a tool to solve the secret message.
The more of you run this application, the quicker we got the result that is needed to
end the lawsuit.

You can download the tool for AmigaOS4, AmigaOS3.x (untested), and for the mainstream systems (Windows).


The first one who deliver the whole message can name the target of a 15 euro donation.
(It should AmigaOS4 related)

ALO
(Amiga Liberation Organization)

Unfortunately there is also a bug where it tries to open a file with a corrupt name, which it can't.

What this one?

Quote:
From: Bill,
To: awfe at deddwe.bb

The product that manufactured along the power design by ack was ready at the last winter in really huge quantities. We had succesfully kept it top secret. But we have a problem now. The manufacturer at China cannot hold more units on storage. The three stadium filled with the OS4 capable machines should be emptied before the olympic games opening! We made huge efforts to obfuscate everything around this system, but the risk of information leakage is rising day by day.


Well it's after the AF deadline now so I'll play along.

Aw, you have beaten me! I was close to the solution, here was my message:

from: bill, to: amfe at sessme.bb the product that manufactures along the power design by ack was ready at the last winter in really huge quantities. he has succesfully kept it top secret. but we have a problem now. the manufacturer at china cannot hold more units on storage. the three stadium filled with the os4 capable machines should be emptied before the olympic games opening!

I had just to see what that "amfe at sessme.bb" should be in reality.

This sentence is missing in the win32 version!

@Varthall

Only you had a char or two wrong in your decryption.

I had just completed it myself a moment ago (took me about 15 mins to work it out), but then I noticed a complete solution had been posted here, but with an extra line or two not found in the "win32" exe.

FROM: BILL, TO: AWFE AT DEDDWE.BB
THE PRODUCT THAT MANUFACTURED ALONG THE POWER DESIGN BY ACK WAS READY AT THE LAST WINTER IN REALLY HUGE QUANTITIES. WE HAD SUCCESSFULLY KEPT IT TOP SECRET. BUT WE HAVE A PROBLEM NOW. THE MANUFACTURER AT CHINA CANNOT HOLD MORE UNITS ON STORAGE. THE THREE STADIUM FILLED WITH THE OS4 CAPABLE MACHINES SHOULD BE EMPTIED BEFORE THE OLYMPIC GAMES OPENING.

I did notice that each time it is run it uses different letters for the coding.

Congratulations to Hypex for being the fastest, and to Steve for your try ^^

And well done to the organizers for the idea, and also for making it multiplatform.

P.S.: What does this sentence mean in the homepage of the binaries?

"For the attention of Spot/Up Rough!
This is a stationery store with a lot of services in the field of press, print-shop, digital printing and sign making. We are offering repair for digital equipments generally called "computers", but we know that this equipments only usurp that name. :)"

Hey, so there was also a second part of the message! Technically, TheAMIgaOne you should be the winner, since you're the first to have posted the entire decoded message.

What about this message in Hungarian? It is in the code, after the secret message:

"A matematikában a négyszín-tétel azt állítja, hogy egy tetszőleges régiókra osztott síkot, akár egy politikai térképet egy ország megyéiről, ki lehet úgy színezni legfeljebb négy szín felhasználásával, hogy ne legyen két azonos színű szomszédos régió. Két régiót akkor nevezünk szomszédosnak, ha nem csak egy pontban, hanem egy határszakaszban érintkeznek. SVÁJC TÖRETLEN NÉPSZERŰSÉGÉNEK TITKA, HOGY EGYEDÜLÁLLÓ ADOTTSÁGAI KIHASZNÁLÁSÁN TÚL, AZ ALPESI ORSZÁG ÉVTIZEDEK ÓTA KÉPES EGÉSZ ÉVBEN SZÍNVONALAS PROGRAMOT KÍNÁLNI A VILÁGUTAZÓKNAK. AMIGA FOREVER. MA VAN A HOLNAP TEGNAPJA."

Which executable? I did not test the 68k version on a classic machine.

So, it looks like you are our hero! (You did not cheat, did you?)
Please name your donation target?

Edit: Oh,no a mistake again! You did not delivered the whole message! You, you ... So, your target is deleting ... deleted.

@TheAMIgaOne

Aaaannd the winner iiiis: TheAMIgaOne!
Congratulations, your help is appreciated! Next mission is to prevent the launch. We have only 10:00 minutes, no 9:59, ah 9:58 ... forget it.

Nice shots, just the window borders are a bit odd. Which theme do you use on your Miggy?

Ok, let's name the donation target! That amount of money will surely change the world.

Not fair! A game directed to Amiga users that cannot use the Amiga versions to play it... Both PPC and 68k versions fail on my A1-G4-933MHz, they show an error informing they are unable to load a 16-bit sample, but the name it's all garbage:



If tried several times I can get it to load and I see the green background and I can hear the sample, but then fails loading Topaz/14 font! Bah...

Saluditos,

Ferrán.
