No, we have no idea, you're the first person to ever notice this. Definately using the SEARCH BUTTON wouldn't yield any kind of answer, because NOBODY HAS ASKED THIS A MILLION TIMES BEFORE.

Think outside of the box. It has been said so many times before its is outrageous. I mean How can pEople actually eXpect us to just give the answer away.

This is the most help you will find anywhere on this site.

The point is for you to find it out yourself.  Just giving it out sort of defeats the whole purpose of having the password in the first place.  The gamebibles provide nice additional puzzles to play around with.  The two hints most given are: too many secrets?
1) Think outside the box
2) Hex

Good luck, and have fun.  :)

This is a chance for you to use the most valuable hacking tool you'll have, your brain :P It takes the fun out of it if we just tell you. However, I'll make it a bit easier by connecting the dots. If you think i.e. look (on the) outside (of) the box, you'll see some hex

If you don't know, hex (short for hexadecimal) is a coding system using in computing - find a converter to translate if, if you can't do it yourself

No, hex is not a coding system.
It is a number system.

Just like binary is a number system, and octal is a number system.
