I have made a program in php to do everything needed.
It reads the offset between the pixels, gets the ascii of it, converts from morse code to ascii,
but still i get wrong answer.

could someone tell me what i am doing wrong.

Also could someone tell me how to make it automated..
i.e it should take the png file itself and post the answer also..

Thanks in advance...

Either you didn't calculate the right offset, or you didn't parse the morse code correctly :)

Learn how to use php sockets ;)

It is not doing everything right if you get the wrong answer, is it?
Why do people assume that they are smarter than the people who coded the challenges and they can't be wrong...

Tell me something, are we supposed to decode the file format, and then search pixel per pixel in a line until we get the full morse code password? Because the info I got on the png format is confusing me a tad. :|

You just use what's visually given to you. The distances translate to ASCII values which are then translated into their corresponding characters, and then you convert that as morse code into an alphanumeric phrase.

hey all
does any one know if at the end of each line in the picture there needs to be a space in order to properly decode the morose code?
sorry if its a dumb question but my morose interpiter has problems handling the off sets and they are

thank you

*edit
never mind
I got it figured I think

Is the translated morse code supposed to be gibberish or is it an actual word/phrase?

For the life of me I can't see that i've incorrectly coded my utility, I get valid morse code (like: "-... ....- ----- .. ---.. -.- . .-- --.- -.-.") however when it is translated I get gibberish like: "B40I8KEWQC".

Thanks,
