App 14

Post by GTADarkDude on Mon Apr 14, 2008 11:24 am
([msg=72]see App 14[/msg])

Does the password submission form work right now? Because I've changed something in the (Edit: Spoiler tags do not work and spoilers are NOT allowed regardless. ) and it gives me a password (11 alphanummerical symbols, if you'd like to check), but it doesn't accept it when I submit it on the challenge page. Is this the right password, or do I have to do something else with it first? Does the applevelup page work?

Oh, and why does the program give me some weird message when I press the 'Validate' button? It says something like:
585mfg9gf
|_YQ `c ibm kgi
\^ K[HU dR^GHHQBG
I don't know why it does that, but I take it doesn't mean anything? Or does this indicate a error in the program itself?

Anybody who can help me with all these questions? :|

11 Alphanumeric Symbols are fine. They make sense when reading them, so you should check back if you decrypted the right thing.
I didnt even run the app once, so I cannot tell if it is supposed to give weird messages when clicking the "Validate" button.

What do you mean by that? I have a normal password which is very likely to be the right one, yet it isn't accepted as a valid password on the applevelup page. Is it OK if I send you the password I have, so you can check if it's the right one?

Probably worth a try poking me (or anyone else) on IRC about it. At least faster than PM here :P (Timezones etc)

You can still PM me if you don't like IRC for some reason.

Doh!
By the way, put some code-Tags around your (great) Tutorial to ExtBasic :)

GTADarkDude: Rijnzael just said something about an App Mission Level Up flaw on IRC, which is supposedly fixed now. Try again with your password.

I tried a couple more times today and now it finally worked. It got the password right the first try, but the applevelup page didn't work I guess. Now, it works indeed!

I guess code tags are different on HTS articles because I just copied and pasted. I'll fix that now.

I just completed the mission!

HINT: If you have Visual Studio Express Edition, use ILDASM, which comes along with it (very useful :D).
