Level Beta - This is not pron

Hi, again!

..I thought I was so smart until Level Beta owned my ass.


Okay, I KNOW from here on out, you're supposed to be on your own, but I would love, love LOVE a semi-little nudge in the right direction. It doesn't need to be a hint, just a nudge! >D;;

Here's a summary of what I've done:

Okay, first, I went through the typical stuff - viewing source for hints, music changes, name of the picture, type of picture, etc. Then, I brought the picture in the photoshop, changed the brightness and the contrast - nothing. I put color in the semi-thick border to see if there were words hidden in it, but there weren't. I tried whatiswill.gif, whatiswill.png and whatiswill.psd, but.. nothing.

What I did notice, in the picture, though, was this weird circle/triangle sort of thing. Brightening and changing the contrast did nothing, so I took the dodge tool to highlight it.. it made things clearer, as far as the image go. It looks sorta like.. a microphone or something.

After staring at the picture for a few minutes, I started to go insane and think that maybe the shiny stuff on the ground had something to do with it, so I went over all of it with red, to see if it made some words - it didn't.

I noticed in the source, that the picture's title was, "wasiswill," so I went to google, searched "Wasiswill -notpron," couldn't find much, except for Korean pages and pages in other languages. I thought maybe "whatiswill" was a song, so I searched, "whatiswill lyrics," and I did find a song by some band called "mathematik," but I didn't download it. I figured that'd be a waste of time [I tried "mathematik.php/htm" and .wav/.mp3 anyway. -.-]. Giving in, I searched "whatiswill," but still didn't find anything. The closest thing I found was some.. science page, or something, saying "whatiswill [be]." So, I tried changing it to, "Wasiswillbe.php/wasiswillbe.htm/be.php/be.htm"

Given some of the other levels, I've attempted:

- wasiswill.wav
- wasiswill.mp3
- be.wav
- be.mp3

Nothing. x.x

I thought maybe I should change the military time to er.. "regular" time, I suppose, and noticed that some of them were 180 flipped, but.. a lot weren't. Either way, I print-screened the time and date stuff on my computer, and outlined all of the different times to see if there were, maybe, something else. There wasn't, obviously. x.x

I also tried lining the times within the picture, too.

I then thought that maybe each of the numbers correlated to a letter in the alphabet, but right away realized that there are only 26 letters in the alphabet, not 37. :/

Another crazy thought that jumped into my head was, "Maybe the time is coordinates on the picture!" ..But, wow, the coordinates are in a small corner of the picture. That's wrong! >D

Then, I thought that the numbers were bible verses.. but there are far too many books in the bible for that to work.

Eventually, I started going crazy and typing weird things in, like:

Onesong.php
GloryOne.php
Lastrefrain.php
hehad.php
theworld.php
timedies.php

^ ..Lyrics from RENT, lol. -.- I was singing it whilst staring at the picture and thought maybe my subconscious was trying to tell me something. ...>.>

Then I became really crazy and tried:

Timetravel.php
missedflight.php
flighttime.php
fluxcapacitor.php
davidmhatesusall.php


..I know those are wrong, though. ::sighs::

I'm really desperate here. I've done every single thing I could possibly think of.. I'm going insane. Please, please someone tell me, at the very least, if any of these are in the right direction, or if someone could give me a kick to the head or something?

From the notpron forums, I know that it's two words put together to form a word that doesn't look like a word at all. And it's supposedly very imaginative, but most of the levels have been that way, too. x.x

Ugh. I'm going crazy!

Any any nudges or kicks or whatever would be loooovely. Thank you in advance.

This is the level that owned me too. I gave up on it a few months ago after trying many of the things you just stated. The best I could come up with was timeflies.php, but, obviously, that was wrong. Good luck with it, and if you happen to figure it out, any help in my direction would be greatly appreciated.

I know this thread is really old, but if someone here has done it, I'd really love a nudge in the right direction. Anything would help. I just want to know if anything that I've been doing is at all right. This game is killing me now. Level Beta has kicked my ass tbh.

you HAVE to turn the times to analog, but not overlay them, then try to find letters in the clock faces...

i'm not creative enough to find them though...

Goodness, I can't believe someone is replying to this. This level has been driving me crazy since I posted about it [Obviously, I'd given up.. but I still would love to know the answer at some point in my life].

I did try to put the time on an analog clock, and I did overlay everything, which made things look absolutely horrid and hard to look at. Though, this post has just given me an amazing idea - I really hope my user/pass still works, because.. I have a new theory, thanks to your comment. :)

haha, how bleeping easy was that... i really wasn't creative enough to think of it myself... a friend of mine took one look at the analog clocks and saw the answer XD on to gamma

You need to look at the times given in the source code. When you have those, draw an analog clock for each time that you have. Try drawing the times on ;)
