Challange 2

GO - 01000111 01001111 - If you zoom in in the right direction of the gigapixel image the binary code will appear. You can spot it quite easily.

challenge2

gigapixel challange2

Huge image hard to find the hint, but if you download all the pieces of the puzzle, you can spot the two binary code when you look through them. Finding binary code for GO

"if only it was this obvious" - nothing to do with that

How to spot the hint for Challange 2 on the gigapixel map?

One possible solution for challange 2 is download all images using Downthemall Firefox extension.

Batch downloads are an easy way to download whole ranges of files. You simply define where to start, where to end and optionally a stepwidth and using Batch descriptors

A batch descriptor might look as following:
[start:end] - we need this one
[start:end:step]

images can be downloaded from: (before you download all the images, just read on and download only the 4 images that we need)

The gigapixel image's parts are separated in 128 folders, each with 128 image files.

From:

https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/0/0.jpg

To:
https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/127/127.jpg

The quickest, easiest way to find something strange on the image is to download all the tiles.

Install Downthemall extension for Firefox.

Open the download manager. Put the link with batch discriptor in Downthemall 3.0.6 download manager. Push the blue plus sign icon to add manually the URL.

(I recommend not to download all the images, download only the 4 images which contains the binary code.)

https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/[0:127]/[0:127].jpg

This will batch download all the images / puzzles for the gigapixel image. When you are done, just open the images scroll through them, and spot the images with the binary code. They are in the folder #94 and #95 and image tile #51 and #52.jpg

(you can copy all the images into one folder, or just go to the parent folder #7 and filter all *.jpg images)

downthemall\version\src\inc\image\tiles\7\94\51.jpg

Please note my download folder named as downthemall. I configured it in the firefox DTA extension, so your folder's name might be different depending on what name you have added.

Do not download all the images, it is completely unnecessary. Download only these:

https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/94/51.jpg

https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/94/52.jpg

https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/95/51.jpg

https://www.geeksgoforgold.com/version/src/inc/image/tiles/7/95/52.jpg

Just put the binary codes to a binary to text converter and you get the word GO to move on.
