    If the TVs are involved, which they likely are, I'm sure you guys will find this page useful. http://client.agentcatalyst.net/

    If it doesn't work, you guys broke it. (It's not thoroughly tested, but it should work.) Once I'm ready to call it "ready for sure", I'll have another thread for this.

    I must have broke it then, two images for each monitor, same feed but not synched.
    The wall of monitors has changed, too. It is non-random with greyscale test patterns at columns A, D and G, B1, E1, H1. The Dalek at B2, 666 at E2 and colour testpattern at H2.

    The two images for each monitor has something to do with the resolution of your window. If I make mine full-size (1920x1080) the monitors show only one feed. If I reduce the window size, I will get the same result as you with two feeds.

    OK, I'm glad to know it's me that is broken. :eek:

    I think a lot of us here are broken.

    Oh. That's probably not what you meant, is it?

    Hello darkness, my old friend. I've come to talk with you, again.

    We might break, but the clock won't.
    You know what they say about keeping your enemies closer? If darkness is your friend, you don't need enemies.

    Alright, the layout of my Situation Room has changed since the last time I was there. Any thoughts? Anything significant?

    In the data the client receives, the 3 unique monitors are associated from left to right to the wikipedia pages for Fear, Terror, and Anxiety. These are numbered 11,14,17. (In CatClient they're B2, E2, and H2, for those who don't understand which monitors I am speaking of).

    According to the wheel, Terror > Fear > Anxiety. This puts the numbers in the order of 14, 11, 17.

    So we have the following possiblities, numerically:
    171114 (Reversed)

    Going off of what Catalyst shared, I found one lead with information:

    Assuming the numbers given are a date - 14/11/17, in dd/mm/yy format - an event called the "Night of Terror" showed up in my search. Essentially, suffragettes arrested in front of the White House during their campaigns were beat up by prison guards and their lead officer in the Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia.

    The only thing that's worrying to me is that the dates go back and forth between the 14th and 15th, but I think given the hints we have so far, this lead can't be too far off.

    I tend to think the 11, 14, 17 are artifacts of the programming not necessarily associated in any kind of code or otherwise. If you number the monitors counting from the top left 1 to 36, those are monitors numbered 11, 14 and 17. If it is a 0 base 2 dimensional array (0-3,0-8) those are monitors numbered 11, 14, and 17. A look after the next change may point out the correct interpretation.

    What I do think is important is one or more possible associations:
    Position 11 == Fear == video "Dalek"
    Position 14 == Terror == video "666"
    Position 17 == Anxiety == video "Colour Test"

    These associations, too, may be better discerned by analyzing the display after the next change.

    Just imagining an example, say this is a coded status display. We can interpret pos14=Terror so we should worry a lot more about anything characterized as "666" compared to our concern about "Dalek" or "Colour Test" which are in pos11=Fear and pos17=Anxiety, respectively.
    BTW, good catch Catalyst.

    They're numbered 1 - 36 in the code that's retrieved from the server.

    Something in the situation room is making noise in a very regular pattern (click and 'tink' sounds). It's easier to hear if you turn off the music. Might be Morse but I'm having troubles translating (there are points where there's a lot of clicking and tinking at once and it's difficult to pick out the order). Thoughts?

    This would be the flourescent ambient sounds. http://forums.blackwatchmen.com/index.php?threads/confirmed-mission-alpha.262/page-2#post-4046

    Shows my reading comprehension then. Disregard.

    No worries, we've been picking at things that we never really thought about before. Feel free to pick at it again, you never know. :p

    In regards to Riningear's lead on the Night of Terror, the map shows two agents in Occoquan.
