I don't know if anyone else noticed this, but in the second (or was it third?) decoding puzzle that you find in the "The Truth" puzzles, the one where you have to search around the pictures with the magnifiying glass until you find the smaller picture with it; in at least 2 of the pictures there is some sort of computer code, in the one with the soldiers holding the guns, the top left has a list of computer code. the picture before it also had some writing
 
I remember one of them being a list of numbers all in the 100 range I believe, I have no idea what it is, but presumably some secret code, in the other picture it was a list of 8 digit numbers, all 0s and 1s, so if someone wants to check it out, maybe we can find out some interesting secrets!!

I also noticed some Morse code written on the wall in the image with Houdini (that might have been a different puzzle however, it was the infrared scanning one). I was semi-interested in figuring out what it said, but not enough to actually write it down.

Yeah, I might go write them down later when I come across the buildings again or something, I was able to replay one of them, so I assume that applies to the rest.

#4 Edited by Chaser324 (6507 posts) -

So after reading this topic, I decided to start writing down that stuff when I saw it. I just got to the puzzle the OP is referring to and I wrote down the stuff I found on two images. I haven't tried yet, but I get the feeling these both might be ASCII code with the first being decimal values and the second being binary values.


This set of numbers appears in the top left portion of the image of civil war soldiers. It's apparently a photo of the Pennsylvania Infantry in Beaufort, SC taken in 1862.
65 110 99 105 101 110
116 32 99 105 116 121
44 32 97 106 97 115
116 104 97 110 44 32
73 110 100 105 97 44
32 105 114 114 97 100
105 97 116 101 100 32
98 121 32 80 111 69
 
This list of binary numbers is in the other image which is a 10th century cave mural from Dunhuang, China that shows the first depiction of a gun and grenade.

EDIT 1:
I mapped the second set of binary numbers to ASCII and this is what I got:
"Sumerian. Me 23."
I'm not sure what the significance of the b-2 is though. Maybe it just indicates that it's binary.
 
EDIT 2:
I mapped the first set of numbers to ASCII and that seems to have worked as well. It reads: 
"Ancient city, Rajasthan, India, irradiated by PoE"
I assume "PoE" stands for Piece of Eden.

I went to a site that translates binary and sat there for what seemed like forever doing the Sumerian Me 23 one, heh.

#6 Posted by Chaser324 (6507 posts) -

I just got the puzzle that deals with "The Mark of Cain" that ends with a bit of Morse code. I'm not sure I wrote it down correctly though because the middle part of it doesn't really make any sense. Here's what I decoded it as:
"Templar Texts <this is the part I messed up or can't understand> adapnddymr. Smith."

" @Chaser324: Awesome guys! Seems like some interesting stuff! =D
 
 I'm glad people here were able to figure some of it out haha, I wish I could go and look around for more secrets, but I have to write a 8 page essay on a single scene in a movie.. 
 
Heres what I have figured out for the sumerian me 23 thing, (wiki LINK
 
"In Sumerian mythology, a me is one of the decrees of the gods foundational to those social institutions, religious practices, technologies, behaviors, mores, and human conditions that make civilization, as the Sumerians understood it, possible. They are fundamental to the Sumerian understanding of the relationship between humanity and the gods." 
 
The 23rd 'me' is Weapons, so take what you will from that =P
 
 EDIT: Oh interesting, I have found some more stuff pertaining to the second puzzle, the ancient city irradiated by PoE, I think you are definitely right about it being Piece of Eden, heres what I found ( LINK) I couldn't find a more credible looking website, but the story is all over the internet;
 

"ANCIENT CITY FOUND,
IRRADIATED FROM ATOMIC BLAST

Radiation still so intense, the area is highly dangerous

A heavy layer of radioactive ash in Rajasthan, India, covers a three-square mile area, ten miles west of Jodhpur. Scientists are investigating the site, where a housing development was being built.

For some time it has been established that there is a very high rate of birth defects and cancer in the area under construction. The levels of radiation there have registered so high on investigators' gauges that the Indian government has now cordoned off the region. Scientists have unearthed an ancient city where evidence shows an atomic blast dating back thousands of years, from 8,000 to 12,000 years, destroyed most of the buildings and probably a half-million people. One researcher estimates that the nuclear bomb used was about the size of the ones dropped on Japan in 1945."
 
 
So there we have it! Thats what I have found so far, I have no idea about the third one until its fully translated =P I am curious though. Very interesting stuff!

Awesome! I did some guessing and I think I have the answer that makes sense, its not 918, its 1918. 
 
July 17, 1918 The last Czar of Russia, Nicholas II was murdered along with his family.
 
So that makes sense =P
 
SOLVED FOR NOW?!

I find it interesting that the dates were so far apart, but then i took all these as clues to where the story will go in the third installment. Maybe they're just easter eggs, or random codes "hidden" in the Animus/ancestor's memories? Or maybe you don't follow one character in ACIII, but you go to different periods of time for whatever reason?

Also I found another puzzle in one of the later ones.. but the symbols didn't appear to be english, so i couldn't write them down.. it looked like it might have been upside down or something.. but it wasn't.. I really have no idea on that one, someone watch for it =P It looks sorta like alien language of some sort.. but it must be something that someone else will recognize!

Hi...
 
where you exactly found the Puzzle?
#22 Posted by ToadRunner (277 posts) -

Perhaps Mr. SMith refers to agent smith of the matrix. Is this some great conspiracy???

#23 Posted by guiseppe (2840 posts) -

I just love how detailed this game is when it comes to the various "conspiracy theory" subjects it brings up. Just replace the templars with the people "at the top of the pyramid" in real life (if you believe that such people exist) and they've brought all of this to light. Sure you'll have to decode a bunch of stuff, but it's really interesting that they've done it. Furhtermore, There seem to be a code of some sort in every single truth puizzle where you have to scan a picture. Some are numerical codes and some are letter based. I haven't taken the time to try and decipher them myself, but I know I've seen one in almost every such puzzle. Also, some just contain hidden messages in plain english, but it's still intreresting. I really didn't expect this game to go into such depths in this territory, or at all for that matter, but it just made it much more... Great.

#24 Posted by daniel_beck_90 (3159 posts) -

I  never took those numbers seriously but the level of depth in the puzzles was indeed admirable .

#26 Posted by SwordSaintSSX (4 posts) -

Mr Smith could well be Jospeh Smith, the man who allegedly found the Gold Plates of the book of Mormon and translated them into english.
 This would line up well with the Assasin's Creed Mythos. Mormonism is the most polyistic cults derived from Christianitiy, they have a big god, yes, but untold billions of other gods as well.
As we find out later on, the (we will refer to him as Prehumans) Prehumans were poorly understood by the humans. As a consequnce the Prehumans were referred to as Gods.
 
Make guess now is that humans under enslavement suddenly got their hands on the PoE, the Piece of Eden. Realised independance and war. While the Prehumans and humans were to busy bitching with eachother a stellar event occored pushed both races to extinction. And in a great act of compassion, the Prehumans pushed all their resources into allowing the humans to continue existing and go on to suceed them. 
 
my 2 cents :)

#27 Posted by Jedted (2355 posts) -

I'm probebly getting ahead of the discussion here but has anyone decoded the binary code that flashes at the end of the Truth video?  It's up for like half a second and i don't have the means to get a screen cap of it.

Wow, that's pretty simple!  I expected it to reveal something much more mysterious, you could figure that out just by watching the video. 
#31 Edited by hybrid_rl (2 posts) -

 Okay guys. I recently completed the AC2 campaign as well as the Subject 16 video, and this is everything (or most of - I had one page with some earlier notes that I appear to have misplaced) that I have found within the glyphs. These may or may not be in order, but I'll put a blurb before each bit of info to describe which file I found it in.

[File with the pictures of FDR, Gandhi, and Hudini]

Some of us have noticed the morse code in the Hudini picture, and a few may have noticed some in the Gandhi as well, though I haven't heard too many people talk about it. Just Hudini. (On a side note, the only thing in the FDR picture is a line of what looks like Arabic or some other form of odd written language running up the length of the standing man's pointer). I copied down the morse in both pictures and translated it, and got the following:

Hudini: 6EKTHITHIK
Gandhi: 6EBURRLAHU

Basically, gibberish. I figured I got something wrong, so I went back to copy the codes down again and take another look. This time, however, both of the pictures had different morse. I translated them both, and got the following:

Hudini: STOMACH
Gandhi: THE BULLET HIT IN THE CHEST

Not sure how they're significant, although the Gandhi message sort of jumped out at me, as later in one of the archive puzzles, you come across a transcript between two people speaking about the assassination of JFK.


["The flames from it's mouth delivers the kiss of death", "Leading the young to their end", "The fire from its throat pokes out their eyes".]

Alright, the Bayonet-picture code has already been brought up here, and that's right. The bit about the city in India being irradiated by PoE, look above for the post. On that, though, PoE also stands for Power over Ethernet (though I'm sure Piece of Eden is actually more correct), and I myself made a bit of connection between the advancement of technology and the destruction of some civilizations. Ergo, Rajasthan was 'irradiated' by modernization. Probably useless, but, thought I'd share. ALSO: There is a floating line in the (I believe) upper left corner that says "A=65". I don't know. But I saw it.

Anywho, there's a block of hexadecimal code on the "Leading the young to their ends" picture on the ground, pretty much in the center of the picture. The block is rather large and I don't feel like typing it all out, but it translates to "Antikythera Mechanism, much older than 150 B.C.E." Wiki here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antikythera_mechanism
 
Quick cut (you should all read more on it though, pretty interesting):
"The device is remarkable for the level of miniaturization and for the complexity of its parts, which is comparable to that of 18th century clocks. It has over 30 gears, although Michael Wright (see below) has suggested as many as 72 gears, with teeth formed through equilateral triangles. When a date was entered via a crank (now lost), the mechanism calculated the position of the Sun, Moon, or other astronomical information such as the location of other planets. Since the purpose was to position astronomical bodies with respect to the celestial sphere, with reference to the observer's position on the surface of the earth, the device was based on the geocentric model."

Perhaps the Pieces of Eden helped to create this device way ahead of it's time? Maybe. Who knows.

[Sumerian. Me 23.]

Quick input: I agree with what Xeiphyer posted, but I had a different theory as well. If you look at the placement of the periods, "Sumerian. [break] Me 23. [end]" My first assumption was that this was left by Subject 23, who happened to be a Sumerian who didn't speak an awful amount of English and was perhaps a bit pressed for time. A simple signature of saying, I was here, I existed. A Sumerian, I'm #23. You never know.

[Martyrs]

All I bothered to write with this one was, "2:57 A.M. Lots of morse on Joan. Too small. Write later." Yeah, sorry. It's there, but I don't have it.

[Nikola Tesla]

The picture with the tower. There is a floating body that reads:

"Fights between individuals, as well as governments and nations, invariably results from misunderstandings in the broadest interpretation of this (last word is either 'word', 'harm', or 'term'.)"    -- Nikola Tesla

On either the same picture or another, I think it was the same as it was written on the side of a building, is a block that reads:

JG   WUGF   KV   VQ
FGXGNQR   C   DQUUQONGUU   UQWTEG
QA   GPGTIA   VGNGHWPMGP
YKTGNGUU   UVC   VKQP

Yeah. No ideas whatsoever.


Also, in one of the Tesla pictures (not sure which one as my notes are a bit unorganized) there is another floater that reads "A=C".


[Thomas Edison Picture]

Again, ton, TON of morse. Didn't bother to write it, if I do someday I will translate and post.


["We Watched the exit from above". I think it was something to do with famous assassins, such as John W. Boothe]

In this picture is a block either on the ground or a building that reads:

AOL   KUBISL
DHZ   RPSSLK
PU   AOL
IBURLY

Again, no ideas, but it's probably safe to say that it relates somehow to the block in the Tesla picture.

In the lower left corner, written on the ground in somewhat stretched letters are the initials "R.I.P." Hard to miss.

Also, there is a floater that reads "A=H."


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And that's pretty much all I had. Not saying all of these are solved/correct but I figured it might help to dump all of the information and theories I had. Happy hunting, boys.

I think that Mr. Smith is simply a pseudonym for a Templar. Since their order is supposedly secretive, I don't think that Subject 16 would have been able to uncover the adapter's name just like that, more likely the name "Mr. Smith" was used to indicate an anonymous person, much like "Mr. Johnson" is.

That would make sense, especially since there was a lot of mysticizm surrounding his assassinations: Rasputin not dying after multiple fatal shots, the fact that his daughters didn't die after the first volley of bullets from the executioner's squad (they were hiding diamonds in their corsets in order to sell them later if needed, but the game's fiction could easily say that this was a lie and they had a Piece of Eden or something), the eyewitness accounts that the Czar said "You know not what you do", paraphrasing Jesus, who also supposedly had a piece of eden, and could be written contextually to be a part of the conflict between the Assassins and Templars.

Telefunken is a company that Tesla worked with to create the first wireless communication between America and Europe.

Don't know what this is referring to.

I don't know, that seems like a huge leap in logic, since there's nothing there that indicates it's hitler. Also, didn't Hitler commit suicide? So he couldn't have been "killed", unless IT'S A COVER UP!!! 
I love how the whole series is turning into a conspiracy story.

That would make sense, especially the first one, since  a lot of the glyph puzzles track people over history who had pieces of eden. It seems like subject 16 made codes within codes, in case a templar did crack the codes (or forced Desmond to, like in AC1). I'd love to explore more on subject 16 in AC3, especially what he knows and how he came to know so much.
#40 Posted by cstrang (2381 posts) -
@DystopiaX: I can't remember the picture that came with the cypher.  And I can't think of anyone else that would have been found dead in a bunker, it certainly wasn't Tesla (He died in a New York hotel room).  Ever consider that Hitler killed his double, then GTFO to make it look like he was dead?  Should someone else submit a better explanation, I'd be all ears.

@Sinkwater: Spot on, sir. I tried the A=[x] cipher before but I guess I mis-copied a few letters, as I just got more gibberish. My handwriting is pretty atrocious, so that would account for it. Nice find.
 
 @cstrang: I was thinking something similar, actually. On top of that, how many other famous deaths happened in bunkers? Anyone got an idea?
 
EDIT: I know where I went wrong, I was using the cipher backwards. I was replacing A with C, B with D, and so on, rather than C with A and D with B.

Great job all, also, newbie helping us out with the deciphering? Awesome/Welcome. =P
 
 
Also makes sense on the mr. smith thing, thats what I was thinking as well, but thought maybe somebody would have some insight on it that I was not aware of.
 
 
Again, great work guys!

@cstrang: I wasn't saying it was wrong, but if Ubisoft left a message i'd think it would be more clear cut because not everyone would think of hitler.
 
Also, played another one of the glyphs today and found a mention of Rasputin having a piece of eden and taking it with him to Russia, which would further support the death of Nicholas II thing.
 
Not a code, but if you run over the American Flag in the picture of the astronaut on the moon, the Abstergo logo shows up. At least i think it is, because that was the logo on the loading screen in AC1 and the background to all the computers in the beginning of ACII.

@DystopiaX: Yes, because Ubisoft isn't being at all unclear with all of this, huh?  That being said, I think you may be right.  It might be Nicolas II or Rasputin they are talking about with the "double" in the bunker.  Nicolas was executed in a basement, as was Rasputin.  Or, the first/second stage of Rasputin's murder took place in a basement.  Dude wouldn't go down.
 
Observation: The title for the glyph 17 puzzle is "The Bunker".  I don't have any photos from the game, but those that have access: can you guys date the photos/ID important dudes in them?

I'm on the first puzzle for glyph 17 & it seems to be a bunch of pictures of the invasion of Normandy.   BTW this is the hardest puzzle I've encountered in the game so far. 
 
 
Edit: I broke down & used a FAQ on this one.  Even the faq's answer made no sense to me.  Here's a pic I found.  Letter you unlock has the date of May 2.1942.

@DystopiaX: If we weigh up what is said about Monsieur Smith.
 
Mr. Smith translated Templar Text. My conclusion is Joseph Smith, the founder of the Mormon religion is the one referred too.
 
Lets weigh it up
 
Real Life Smith = Allegedly found the Gold Plates of the book of Mormon and translated them into english.
 
AC2 Mythos = Smtih came across the Templar text, called them his own and translated them into English.

@SwordSaintSSX: Nice job, makes more sense than the anonymous guy theory...curse them ridiculously common last names.

If this is like the other one with the wheel, don't you find a symbol with number=symbol somewhere in the pictures/background, then you press R2 and realign the wheel so that the number and the symbol match up? and then you just input the symbol that goes with the corresponding pictures on the wheel. 
 
And since Normandy=WWII I guess this is our proof that Hitler supposedly had a Piece of Eden...or his "double" did.
