what in the world does all thies numbers mean?

I don't want the solution but a hint or two would be nice

btw. I wrote my own software for the OTP bit in Book2 :)
if any one would like to see the source for it, then
PM me and I gladly post it, but only my otp, count, and strip prog. I also used a bash script, but don't even bother beg me for it.

Now this post has been here for a week,
doesn't really any1 know just some hints for book 3?

as I said, I've decrypted entire book 2, and me being a complete newbee in cracking I can only thank the people in this forum for the source of infomation on how to, now I need some guidance as to how I use the numbers in the 'readme.txt' from book 2. The numbers are set up with 3 number per line and seemingly a random number of lines are followed by an empty line fx:

16 33 22
46 08 33
33 22 84
21 15 04

36 27 13

01 06 11
44 22 66

(thies are not the real numbers but some I just made up, but they are like the once in the 'readme.txt' file)

Quote: from Chris[br]Maybe you're wondering where book 3 is?  Well, it wouldn't be right for us to just give it too you.  You're going to have to work at it.  And this time, it's going to be a challenge.


I will say book 3 is the only one fully accessable to everyone.  :)

Stew: I know, but i need help understanding the numbers in the readme file. I know they hold the key but to me they don't make any sense.

Please don't post all in caps, it makes you look a little on the idiotic side.

As for help, well ok a little might not hurt much. Book three is in a very obvious place.

As for me? Have all 4 and have for quite a while.

as many had feared I will now post my source code for the programs: otp, count and strip.

(to Linux only)
otp.cc:
#include <fstream>
#include <stdlib.h>

int main( int argc, char *argv )
{   // there are no error handling because this program
    // are only used in one way:
    // otp <in_file> <key_file> <offset> <out_file>
   int offset = atoi(argv[3]);
   char ic = 0, kc = 0;
   std::ifstream I(argv[1]);
   std::ifstream K(argv[2]);
   std::ofstream O(argv[4]);
   for(int i = 0;i<offset;i++)
   {
       K.get(kc);
   }
   while(I.get(ic))
   {
      K.get(kc);
      O << (char)(ic^kc);
   }
   I.close();
   K.close();
   O.close();
   return 0;
}
EOF

count.cc:
#include <fstream>
#include <iostream>

int main( int argc, char *argv )
{   // there are no error handling because this program
    // are only used in one way:
    // count <in_file>
    unsigned long i = 0;
    char c;
    std::ifstream I(argv[1]);
    while(I.get(c))
    {
        i++;
    }
    std:cout << i << endl;
    return 0;
}
EOF

strip.cc:
#include <fstream>
#include <iostream>

int main( int argc, char *argv )
{   // there are no error handling because this program
    // are only used in one way:
    // strip <in_file> <out_file>
    char ic = 0;
    std::ifstream I(argv[1]);
    std::ofstream O(argv[2]);
    for(int i=0; i < 16; i++)
    {
       I.get(ic);
    }
    while ( I.get(ic) )
    {
       O << ic;
    }
    I.close();
    O.close();
    return 0;
}
EOF


this is the code I used on gamebible 2.

The code is written in C++
thies are not a part of the code:
1: italic: states the filename I used
2: EOF           means 'End Of File'




the code need's to be compiled before use
and only a real progammer/a programmer in training should find meaning in the code.

btw there are 3 files of code in my last post

I'm no C++ wizard here, but I noticed something about your code. You used std::, which although is good paractise, is un-nessicary if you include at the top:

Code: Select all

using namespace std;


[I think, i can't 100% remember at 12:03am]

Also you say its for linux only, yet I fail to find a single line that wouldn't execute on a W32 platform. So would it be able to be ported just by a little C&P?

you are absolutly right, I just never compiled i for win32, cause my borland compiler is (preaty fucked up) much a mess, and the programs doesn't read files right

But if you got MSVC++ go ahead port it, please just don't change to much.
These progams should be to simple to actualy be change that much.

Why don't you just go get bloodshed its free and it works better then most C++ programs.  Hell you can't do enough C++ to really wear it out so it will work.

uhmmm
here's a idee instead of making it hard on every one by making us learn c++ before we can actualy have gamebible2 and 3 why not just make a post where to download them damn gamebibles

there just books that show you how its made there is no real use to it ,like hints or telling you how to get easy money or something there a waste of time trying to find em

The are hidden to create a little game for people, a little real hacking.  You do not need to know C++ or any programming language for that matter, to get any of the books.  :)
