This is Not Pron

    This is probably the hardest online game/scavenger hunt I've seen. It consists of about 60 stages. In order to pass each stage, you really have to think outside the box. This isn't just a point and click on the right spot game. You need to look at the URLs, view source, edit the pictures, google, solve riddles, translate Morse code, etc etc. The online stats show that only 0.0009% of people who have tried this game have made it to the end.

    Good luck!

    (I'm at stage 7 right now... I suck. lol)

    I got to level 5 before I had to go to bed. I haven't really tried since I first played it, though.

    Wow this is fun!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Darn it i have exam tomorrow i wont play this one pretty long..
    maybe i will give it a try after exams!!

    Level 1,2,3 are breeze
    Level 4 was a bit diff but was not very hard
    Level 5 was err straightforward (i needed a bit of help from clues tho)
    Level 6 .... well hints were good no probs
    Level 7 was hard too hard ...... too much of googling yeech!
    I am on Level 8 and i am hungry
    I will prolly catch up on it a bit later, but when will i study for the exam :cry:

    **Blames check for all these**

    dont give up so soon!!
    The level 4 is pretty easy but you need to have sharp eyes ...
    The image is the only important thing here ...
    I might suggest brightening up your monitor cuz the "message" may not be seen properly ..

    did u see something peculiar in the image ... something u feel looks odd and shouldnt be there?

    Man I'm stuck on no. 3. I feel sooo stupid!
  15. Dec 4, 2004 #14
    dont feel that way .... many ppl get stuck

    A general method of solving the levels on this site,
    1> note down the url of the page
    atleast anything after http://deathball.net/notpron/
    2> note down the title of the page
    3> carefully peruse the image and see for peculiarities and note them down
    4> look at the source code of the page (if u have html experience , it could be highly useful) there are hints on the source code of the page included as comments.
    5> last and not totally necessary , a browser with google opened.

    for level 3,
    first see the image,
    why do u think the image was taken ... do u see anything peculiar? i mean why would anyone take a pic of a monitor , its useless but if the pic of a monitor is given then it must have some clue maybe a picture or some text?
    once u found what the image has, concentrate on url.

  19. Dec 5, 2004 #18

  20. Dec 5, 2004 #19

  21. Dec 5, 2004 #20
    Oh, how do I save a level, or do I have to redo all previous levels if I exit.
