  1. Well I understand he helped with the Rx. Which I very much enjoyed in D4. I just found the rally aspect a bit rubbish. I admire the ambition but for me DR was leagues ahead in all areas of the rally genre. 
    With some small tweaks to the DiRT 4 parameters it would have beaten DiRT Rally hands down. There were some small things, especially with the older RWD cars, that weren't perfectly dialed in and those things had quite a big impact on the feel of it all.

    RX proves that the physics engine is good. But having a good physics engine doesn't mean that all cars drive perfectly out of the box. You also need a lot of data so you can configure the cars the right way and extract everything from the physics. But I'm confident that Codies have learned a lot from it. If they can collect data as well as they can troll us they'll have something nice cooking for sure! :#

  2. I am quite certain I've extracted all artifacts from the image. I've edited them to only show the missing pixels (so it's easier on the eyes lol). Here they are in order from left to right, row by row. The final artifact on the second row consists of two pixels, a space, and another two pixels so I assume those four pixels are one artifact. And on row 1, artifacts 1 & 2 were right next to each other and artifacts 4 & 5 were right next to each other. Not sure if that's relevant. I like to think they were best buddies!





    Now let's figure out what they mean! :smile:

    Counting the pixels per artifact gives us:

    Making each counted row a single string:

    Or adding them together:

    And then making that a single string:

    Or adding together:

    Turning them into letters is a bit difficult. Some that I can recognize quickly:
    ? ? ? Y ?
    V W ?
    N ? ? ? T ?
    X T M L

  3. In what context did you find them? Plus I think we are past the cipher stage but I'm not sure how  :D
    There are 4 rows on the image with artifacts in them. First you have 5 artifacts in a row, spread out from from left to right, then a row of 3, a row of 6 and a row of 4. So before we go ahead and decipher each artifact maybe those numbers are already enough to get us somewhere.

    I've been away and didn't checked the thread for few days. Boy, what have I missed.
    Most important info I think is:

    phone number: +46 (49)7 - 101 - 7891

    Opening times:
    Monday & Tuesday: "appointment"
    Wednesday to Friday: 6pm - 4am
    Saturday & Sunday: 6pm - 6am

    Messages you got when you mail them:
    "On holiday until the 13th"
    "Left 90"

    If you take the first part of that last message (/HlxyY) and use that with https://goo.gl/ it returns http://jbcffcjb.grabwhileucan.info/

    Other than that there were some references to Petter Solbergs career (first win in 2002, WRC title in 2003, WRX title in 2014)

    Ooh, and now that you've dug around in the server the kebab images are offline now as well!  :D

  5. Tried the phone number to page numbers theory. So taking parts of the phone number, use them as page numbers and then taking the first word on each page.

    From "+46 (49)7 - 101 - 7891" I took "46" and "(49)7" to go to pages 46 and 497 and the first word from each of those pages are "the" and "wait". "The wait"? That got me optimistic! Page 101 returns "Codemasters" and page 7891 does not excist. As @JorritVD mentioned 101 is the 26th prime number. Page 26 returns "Would". Not sure if this is going anywhere. :D
