..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/b
Given some of the other levels, I've attempted:
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:
^ ..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:
..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.
