[UPDATE] metacortechs garbled [Nov 1]

[EDIT -- AnthraX101: This thread has become a discussion involving decompiling the flash. If you do not agree with this method, please do not view it.]

In case it goes away sometime soon, a screenshot and copy of the Flash file has been mirrored (http://netninja.com/scrapbook/Metacortex/metacortex/). I'm out the door in a few minutes, so don't have time to dig through all of this right now.

I don't think so... This could be just a sign of stranger things to come. Very Happy

I know we're not supposed to decompile... so the mods can delete this post if they think it's inappropriate. All the stuff in that flash (which I saved, and, yes, decompiled) is plain English letters, just on top of each other. Here they are, in order, starting with #5 (first 4 were empty), should be 127 in total:

The last few, read backwards, are obviously "Cortex SERVING you", so the other ones probably amount to something as well.

There's nothing new there... Check out what the "correct" Metacortech flash currently says, and you'll see that the scrambled flash was just that - a scrambled version of the original.

I didn't really understand what you mean.. anyway it's not just a PM's mistake if you tought that...

Why should they have made 2 pics with a oil paint effect and put those into the swf instead of the original ones?

Yeah, except the fact that the "broken" flash only had 127 characters in it, whereas the real one obviously has more. I'm trying to get the missing characters now - but, of course, I could be totally on the wrong track.
