Agreed. I have been stuck on this one for quite a while. I'm starting to wonder how people actually completed it, or if the few people who have completed it did so by some external assistance that they are not sharing with the rest of the class. I could definitely use a slight nudge into the proper direction as everything I have checked (which has been a LOT of stuff) have all come up the same as you.... garbage.

Today i ended up scanning for members who completed the challenge to see if there was a common thread. (like if they where coders, graphicians or any other expertise) or similiar to use that as a guideline. Thats when i realized how desperate i was starting to get.

Edit: 4 of the members who completed this is in the Top 150 page. just a random notice.

Coding was key for me in this one.

Ive made tons of programming for this one! =D ,
However, one of the solutions i have seems to be a rather likely one, because it kind of fits how the file is structured.
but no matter how i twist this specific idea i get nothing else than garbage, so now im kind of stuck in this specific
thought of how this must work. Can i send you a PM (Defience) with what this specific idea of mine is, and then you can tell
me if im completely off or not? Its actually kind of 2 ideas, its two very specific conditions that ive found so far that makes
them interesting for me.

I'm not sure if this will come across as a spoiler or not. So, if it does, just let me know, I won't have a problem editing it myself. Getting to the point though, I seem to be in a position with this image, where the most logical conclusion is to bruteforce an encryption key. I'm wondering however, is this completely off the mark, or am I getting close to a solution with this idea? And if so, will there be clues as to at least the length of the key hidden anywhere else within the image? Thanks in advance.

I believe i am either quite close or have driven myself insane.
So as to know whether to continue on this path,
may I PM someone with what i have ?

I assume none of the few who have solved this are still keeping tabs with the forum topic, much to my (and it seems, everyone else's) dismay. I've been analyzing this image in many different ways, but don't see anything odd beyond the utter lack of one value in any of the three color values (RGB) and the heightened presence of another value in 1/3 of the color values. Studying these and replacing bytes has given me nothing, however, and I am at a loss to whether this avenue is even worth pursuing. In the off-chance that a user who has successfully completed this mission sees this message, is there any insight or specific topics that would help crack this challenge?

Apologies if something in here is too revealing, but without the solution at hand, I have clue what's just pointless information and what may be considered a spoiler.

Am I close?

I wonder if I'm even on the right track...reminds me of Programming 10. I think :no: color stands out, all by Itself.

I'm assuming part of a channel level is marked specifically to help guide?

I hope someone at least figures this challenge out or at least could point me further following that. -_-
