When is the next one supposed to be?
There are time zones, you know. That means that not everywhere in the world the time is the same. Linkin Park has fans all around the world. It's not unfair to anyone.
an hour and 15 minutes I think
Same here lol
there's been no difference to those using the cheat and those not using it, right? >.>
Yeah this happened to me too. Now there's no point doing it really.
It was fun while it lasted.
Wait is it a contest? I thought it was just a "Hey, you guys wanna play something fun?" type deal.
I haven't been reading into this much.
It depends. I've solved them all without cheating, the thing is that you have to focus on smaller parts of the picture first, for example, completing a corner, or a silhouette. If you always look at the picture as a whole you'll end up getting overwhelmed and will move pieces all over the screen without making any progress. It needs you to be focused and calmed (though with this 5th puzzle I did lose my calm trying to correct the last two pieces lol). I could say it also depends on your spacial and logical capabilities (not trying to imply anything, just certain people seem to develop that faster than others).If you think you have enough patience and are willing to solve it on your own, it could be fun, if not, you can use GoldFire's method and get the same result, as many folks around here do .
It'd be cool if everyone gets a snippet, but how long that snippet is depends on how many puzzles you completed.
I think the artwork will be better than ATS because ATS is my least favorite album art work from them
Is it a supposition or you've got it from a legit source ?
Makes no sense for not allowing previous puzzles be solved, I suppose it's a bug they haven't noticed. If only we could tell them somehow... through Adam maybe?
Since we haven't got a snippet yet, I'm thinking we won't get one until the puzzle is halfway complete...and then another when it is fully complete.
Same here. Hope the cheat works on the next one too.
I can't get the new cheat to work
EDIT-- Sorry, wrong button. Tried to edit my post and instead I hit "reply" :S
^ This, guys. And like someone said before, these puzzles have nothing on the binary codes. Those were a LOT more difficult, I could barely solve one or two.
It's hard because they're not like, 12 hours one from the other, so they go in a irregular schedule. I had to wait for the 4th puzzle at 2:30 am, went to bed at 3 and woke up at 9:45, way past my usual time. Hopefully the next one that goes online at night will be earlier, but it is difficult for many fans who wait for them :/
I hate this type of puzzle, next one I'll use the cheat.
Just wanted to share my opinion about the puzzles, because you are all so interested in it!
Yes, I hate the puzzles, because I'm just not capable of solving them, They're hard for me, because I'm apparently missing some part in my brain that solves puzzles. I was able to complete about 60/70% of them after a lot of tears, blood and sweat, but then I've reached my limit.
Still, I love that the guys did that, because it engages us and keeps us excited. Okay, I had a lot more fun when the cheat still worked, actually I don't have any fun at all now, but I still appreciate the gesture. Snippets aren't that important for me considering that we'll hear the song soon anyways. It's the thought that counts. So, I hereby reward Linkin Park with the Puzzle Appreciation Fan Award:
dosent the snippet of the song should get you hyped about the song it self?
if it should , logicly we need to get it in the next few days otherwise it wont be effective.
i rest my case!
Same here, when the second puzzle was released I woke up at ~5AM solved it at 6AM (needed sleep lol). For the 4th piece I stayed up till ~2am woke up at ~8am for the 5th these puzzles are making me sleep deprived LOL.
thank goodness for alarms lol
