In the last article we discussed keyword substitutions and suggested some places to look when figuring them out.
Today, we’re going to look at the high priority alert released on September 12 and the 3 codes hidden inside.
The passcode format for the 3 codes is:
Code 1: Difficulty (2/5)
The code seems to be in the proper passcode format with J in the keyword position. Obviously looking for a glyph that looks like J is the first thing that comes to mind:
Code 2: Difficulty (2/5)
This code also seems to be in the proper passcode format and alignment is a known keyword but it is not a valid passcode. Looking up alignment in the Niantic Wiki reveals there’s a book called The Alignment: Ingress by Thomas Greanias. Greanias is a known keyword too.
Code 3: Difficulty (2/5)
Code 3 is braille but it needs to be horizontally flipped to read properly.
Like code 1 and code 2, the code seems to be in the proper format but howmuch is not a known keyword.
I mentioned in the previous article that you’ll find a non-English term as the keyword to translate into an English keyword, the reverse is also possible. Knowing Latin will help translate how much into quantus or quantum, of which quantum is a known keyword.
Roger Strain will look at codes from the Access Dive 4.
