No idea

It seems that I can see the ways, but have no idea what to do with them.
Looked at them for two days, shuffling them any directions and still got nothing.
Please help.

Ok.. I've been stuck on lvl 25 for a long time now.

I've gotten the obvious part out of the way and received some things.
Total things gotten = number of puzzle pieces = number of lvl

Now I am completely stuck. Horribly, utterly, mind-numbingly stuck.

The things don't sound normal, they don't look normal (in hex or otherwise)
Tried combining them, tried the lvl 19 trick, nothing...

I just have no idea what to do with them...

Please help!

I was stuck on this level for almost a year, as you can see from dates :-)
But it appears to be simple after all.
Just open NEXT, as you did in the past.

Maybe I am just dense (I doubt it since I got this far) but that didn't help me at all. I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out what "open NEXT" means. I think I need a bigger hint.

Please?

I'm totally stuck here, and can't see/hear anything at all.

May I ask for a little hint ? please


EDIT: thanks to a PM from vassily, I finally discovered how to obtain the waves, and the rest of the riddle was really a pleasure then !

For those needing it, a spoiler in rot13 (moderators, please edit, if too explicit):

I have the 25 parts of the wave, there seems to be a pattern in it but I /just/ can't solve the damn thing.

I've tried rearranging, splitting, cutting, I don't see anything. 3 parts seems to offer promise, but not much.

Can someone please PM me a hint on this, I'm losing sleep!

once you have found the waves, and apparently you did, you have to SEE them...
Then don't forget that they might have to be reaaranged blocks by blocks, just as a jigsaw.

I have been stuck on this level for a while now and am in need of a little help. I have the waves and have tried "seeing them" without success. A push in the right direction would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Frank

I looked at one of the files with an analysing tool that you would normally use for such files. From that visualisation I realised that the data looks strange for files of that type, somehow the data seems to be arranged in groups of size n (n being quite small). What else is normally stored in groups of size n?

I can't find waves for a while, I think I'm dumb. Someone, PM me spoiler, please.
UPD: Argh... My browser doesn't think, that I can do anything but listening of wavs

Any hints on how to put the pieces together? I just can't figure this one out.

Hi everyone,

same problem here. I got all the pieces, but I just don't get how those fit together, even after opening them with an adequate software.
I don't even know how Python could help here !

An MP would be helpful :)

Thanx

How to interpret these pieces?

Thanks to the hints above, I now have 25 pieces, and even tried to visualize them in an obvious way. However, I don't seem to be getting anywhere. It seems that I need to "rearrange" them in some way, given the jigsaw puzzle hint, but I don't see any clues that would indicate to me what I should do with these 25 pieces of data, beyond trying to see them. Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

I am somewhat horrendously lost as to where to go with this one. I found a number of pieces to work with and I've looked at them in some editors. I'm not really sure what to do with them or how to put them together. I'd appreciate some guidance.

Before putting the pieces together, you have to "convert" them. The html-page gives some hints about what filetypes the pieces are and what filetype you should get from them.
