Several people are talking about 'unshuffled images'. So why don't you try to 'unshuffle' the binary file you found in images?

Oh yeah! I got through! Thanks for your hints.

I got the gfx file and found out what gfx means, than wrote a C rather than Python program to unshuffle the file. Unfortunately, I fopen()ed the output files in mode "w" rather than "wb" and got meaningless files :shock:

Try to study the file header of different image formats, the gfx file should be unshuffled exactly.
Hint: The header of a proper JPG file contains characters "JFIF"

You should have 5 parts, and it should be clear what parts apply and what parts don't. The parts that apply form the correct word.


i got the last word too by unshuffle gfx fiel.
but i don't know what's mean about the word. by google day after day , i think if anything about Sesame Street's count von count?
i never watch the Sesame Street tv show , and i'm so tired to get the right url.
can you give me more hints?
sorry my poor english.

The word is the solution, no need to comprehend it. If it doesn't work in a URL, then you didn't solve the puzzle.

I got through this level but I am back now looking for extra information that I need. I got to an object which says (No ___ ___) and according to a previous post there is a clue in it to get to another object which says (Yes! ___ is ___!) but I can't figure out how to get to this last object.

Question: Do you need a hex editor to complete this level?

I still don't have a clue, honestly. :( Do I need any special Python libraries (to 'unshuffle' or something)?

So you don't need a Hex-editor, nor modules. So I have to use the built-in functions.
I tried reading in the contents of the gfx, but it can't read it. It displays very few characters.
What am I supposed to do? This is really hard.
I also got something stating that someone is evil. Is it the hint for a latter level?
:?

got it at last!

i've got stuck processing on the blurred figure of a hand shuffling a card. what a waste of time!

here's your hint:
1. focus on changing the url and look for hidden files.
2. one is a binary file which contains 5 piles of clue to the next level.

good luck!
:lol:

I would have done this a lot faster without reading these hints, they just confused me.
