Just another note - the small prize does NOT include the computer pictured behind the keychain.

Dude, you know where the reference to the URL is. That wouldn't be fair. :P

...If they have, they'd better read it again fast - because there's a bit of a 'contest' with regards to it now. :D

...If not - you'd better start looking. The first one to follow the instructions found on it will get... a shrubbery!

(Just kidding - but I will snail-mail them a small prize. :D )

Edit - *(One more thing - Please don't post the URL on here! I want it to be a reward for those who find it, even if they're not the first and get the prize. Thanks for your support!)


Yeah... i get disqualified because i already found it in the first place... RAWR!!!!!! GORRAMIT!!!

Yeah, I'm back.. been long time no see eh? I'm map-making for half-life 2 now... I'm excellent with it! (this is offtopic, cough cough... errr, how ya say it? FYI. There we go.)

Alright, two and a half weeks, not even a mention of anyone looking. I'm mailing the keychain to xander. :P

I tried looking but gave up. All I got was a Monty Python reference and something about Solitaire.

When you start the mod, the first three lines of text are in code. The first two lines should be easy to figure out, the other one... might take some guesswork. I figured someone that this would have been a piece of cake for someone that had figured out the gamebibles (though I personally don't have all the parts... not for lack of trying, just lack of caring much).

OK, I'm now stumped with the file I got from your site. :P

....Huh?? What file?

Those three lines of code contain a link to an URL on my site - a text file not linked anywhere else - that was the clue. I thought everyone would see the binary and think, "I wonder if that actually says anything". Guess not. I'm too obscure for my own good.

Edit - Nevermind, you were probably talking about the text file referred to? Wow, you cracked that fast. :D

So I wasn't suppose to find secret.txt?

EDIT: Ah, so it's a binary? I got an error when executing it.

That's it. I'm suprised it has you stumped. Again, I thought that would be obvious, too...

It's scrambled so means nothing to me. :P

Unless you used redshirt, which I don't really understand. Its not a zip and its a .exe. Its hard finding out file types on a Windows machine :P
