The Terminal

Switch your view on the Hippospace Download Map to the giant robot, which is a duck launcher. You will also find a terminal, the only thing other than the large button used to launch a rocket. (This may be why you opened this guide).

The terminal will ask for a username.

Username:

We will return to this area later.

Red Dashboard

Wait until the arm retracts. There is a large tube that leads to a large dome-shaped area.

After it has been retracted, you can switch to the view of a duck entering the tube through the entrance. (This may not be necessary!) Enjoy the view and when the duck enters, switch to the dashboard.

You will find on the right-hand side of the dashboard a hatch that can be opened by pressing a button. The monitor duck will launch when you press the button.

This is the username you need to enter into the terminal. If you can’t figure it out, then it is probably not the username.

g.toto.

If you are looking at the large arrangement of light on the dashboard, use the domino arrangement (disregarding the leftmost piece) and enter the combination. The lower screen on the right will reveal a string of alphanumeric characters. It is the password.

The Long Code

Enter the username and password at the terminal.

You will see a command-line interface. Refer to the manual provided since there is no command help and ?.

  1. Take note of the contents of the sounds directories and files.
  2. Read the contents of forsaken folder Texture.db
  3. Take note of the contents of the log error log.

OPEN Displays the contents of a file.

The open command can be used to read the (simplified version of) the contents of each sound file.

.
β”œβ”€β”€ log
β”œβ”€β”€ sounds
β”‚Β Β  β”œβ”€β”€ 1.midi
β”‚Β Β  β”œβ”€β”€ 2.midi
β”‚Β Β  └── 3.midi
β”œβ”€β”€ sys
β”œβ”€β”€ forsaken folder
└──── Texture.db

Note down the contents in the files based on the outputs of the open commands.

Open Texture.db > forsaken folder.

cd sounds
dir

This will lead to an error.

1.midi
2.midi
3.midi
open 1.midi
open 2.midi
open 3.midi

You will see a new file in the log directory:

cd ..
cd forsaken folder
open Texture.db

 

The file is corrupted!

Now, you can read it using the open (note that it is unique to each player) command:

cd ..
cd log
dir

 

error.log

 

Assembling code

Refer to the contents of MIDI file. Use the G note position to fill in the channel string.

The position is the order in which the notes are arranged, ex. in F-A-C-G-A#-F, it is the 4th note, so the number to fill is 4.

The numbers are 1.midi and X. 2.midi is Y. 3.midi is Z. The numbers are

2, 6 and 4., respectively.

Replace each X,Y andZ in this format.

  • Original:
open error.log
  • New:
    -error.log-
    channel: GX...XGY...YGZ...Z###

Use this alphanumeric sequence to name your monitor duck.

The Fun Part

Now you’re ready to unlock The Secret!

Return to the terminal. A new file has been dropped into the directory sys. Check it out:

Ooh, interesting! Now, let’s do it!

cd ..
cd sys
dir
