    I agree with that. This October 15 sandbox is the hardest thing I've run into yet. I'm up to Mission 3 of Ashes to Ashes if anyone in the general area wants to team up with me or add me as TemplarBard on Steam.

    I sailed fast 1.1 and 1.2 but I am seriously stuck at 1.3.
    What I know so far:
    A shortened IT code for Division 88, which I cannot unshorten
    A reference to Genesis 11, which is the story of the Babel Tower but also the genealogy of Shem. Also Babel is referenced for a cipher but I cannot make it work
    A verification table which obviously work with something I need to work out from 1 and 2.
    I have several leads and nowhere to go. Any help appreciated.

    EDIT: I have found the first hint.
    First of all, I need to underline that there is quite a logical jump from the first hint to the second one [END OF RANT].
    I have now the reference to
    a volume of a shelf in a wall of an unidentified Hex of the Library.
    Still, I do not know what
    Library site
    to use.

    Remember the hint you got in the client?
    Genesis 11 is about a certain Tower, perhaps there is a library with a Connection to this Tower.
    Look for the library of Babel

    Thanks for the help. I had found out the reference to that library. I meant what internet site related to that library would contain the document we need.
    In any case I found the right site (or one that worked), I have the document and the
    3 call codes.
    However they do not work on any archive site...

    Okay, I've just come here to say that Part 3 was incredibly hard. Solving it finally was better than an orgasm :D
    Accurate but HUGE helps for ALL STEPS:
    1) div88 - find it. "M4J9F" will be obvious.
    2) Genesis 11 - You need "*something_here* of Babel" not Tower. You like to read books, are you?
    3) Connect 1 and 2. Don't decipher don't overthinking(like me), just connect your results
    4) DO NOT OVERTHINK :D It's easy now like beginner's missions.
    5) Now you have 3 files and this is time for this big language codes pdf file finally.

    I spend the most time on damn Genesis 11. At the first time - I could not find it. I opened it twice in mine browser but did not understand that it is it. And after it I could not get that this huge wall of data could be the key without any deciphering. Other parts took a while but this "Tower of Babel" really pissed me off :)

    Sorry for my non-native English.

    I'm stuck at your 4) dont over think it! I so must be. I am at ...

    the library - I've got the W S and Vol numbers taken from DIV88. I've gone through every hex to the right page and dont see any of the 3 files mentioned

    What am I missing?

    The decrypted text
    (without the w, s, b, p parts)
    is a clue to the hex you need. Be careful about cutting and pasting. You have to copy from the browser into the browser.

    Whenever I past the text

    I get something that isn't the vwsp that is at the end of the text. I get a different completely vows Is that right?

    Is it something to do with the numbers that are in the text as all other text in the library doesn't have any digits.

    Do you think there is a problem with the cutting and pasting?

    Not sure if I'm understanding the problem, but it should be; huge hex code, wall, shelf, volume, page->and that will yield the babel your looking for. Here is official explanation since the library has already been spoken of https://libraryofbabel.info/referencehex.html
    got to love that pic from the library guide

    Hey guys, I'm currently stuck on 1.3

    I've found the text file with the the huge hex-code and the location (w,s,v,p) but the found text in the Library does not make sense... Am i missing something? Should the huge hex-code be decrypted (with what) ?

    if you have entered the library correctly, the resulting text should be in english

    Hey everyone, I'm stuck on 1.3

    try using them in the url shortener you got earlier in the mission
  17. dawed1999

    dawed1999 Active Agent

    Have been trying but nothing as of yet. Just to be sure:
    the call codes are:09898,09899, and 09900 right?

    i think youve got your first letters wrong
    pay close attention to the spelling

    i just tried some things, and apparantly they are regular archive files
