Hack This Game Hints Week 1

These are the hints for files (Login – File 4):

Login ——————————————

The error code will help you figure out the login. Each X or O represents a button that was pressed. X means the Button was wrong and O means it was correct.

Try out different combinations of logins and check the error code. If your still having trouble, write down both the code you enter and the error code to see which buttons were correct.

File 1 —————————————–

Count the code by using the key.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ………


File 2 —————————————–

The Xbox controller is very colorful as well.

If you’re colorblind…

A- Green

B- Red

X- Blue

Y- Yellow

File 3 —————————————–

This is just a regular old game of Hang Man. Here is the list of used letters…



File 4 —————————————–

Decode each of the clues to get the whole password. Each clue is solvable with one of the 4 button letters (A B X or Y].

_Marks the Spot Treasure map
_Male exclusive chromosome Women have two X chromosomes
_-Men The superhero team
_Blood type with B antigen It’s not X or Y
_ Alpha Not Beta…


That’s it for this week, good luck!

  11. PLEASE can someone help me on file 13 I have absolutely no Idea of how to do it!!!

    • Same here!

      • an alphabet sheet helps, find a pattern.

        • Is the pattern every 13 letters on?

  12. Stuck on #19. You guys are breaking my poor widdle brain.

    • What’s the answer to file 18 ?

  13. wheres file 6??

  14. Someone help with 14

    • every number is a letter.
      There is just ONE number, which Letter is on the Controller


  15. Please someone give me s clue for file 6 it’s driving me mad

    • What letter is missing from each row of the lines going down.
      Heres an example.

      see. y is missing from 1st. and a is missing from second.
      now do that on your game

  16. Level 19!!!!

    • any advise for file 17?

    • How Did you get 17 any hints:)

      • Shower has 6 letters
        Same with stores
        Lawn and shop have 4 letters
        Movie has 5
        Now think of the colors that have that same amount of letters

  17. PLZ 12 I NEED THE ANSWER FOR 12!!!!!!!!!!

  18. im on file 16 any clues on this one?

    • nevermind i figured it out on to 17…

      • 16 has got me stumped.. im blind to the pattern. can you give me a hint or 2 please? many thanks :)

        • My advice is not to try to figure out the puzzle itself. It’s a cryptogram. If the puzzle is a sentence, “q” can only be one letter of the alphabet. The rest is trial and error, having ruled out “q” as a possibility.

  19. Stuck on File 8, altho i’ll no doubt kick myself when I see the correct answer lol

    • Help with # 7 please

  20. Anybody? Level 14? Please

      • Nine is too hard for my young brain! 11 yrs old

  24. File 12 is wracking my brain.

    A + A = B
    X + A = Y
    B – Y = X

    (B – X) : (A + X) : (A – X) : (B – A) : (Y + X)

    • substitute numbers for the letters and once you get teh main three equations right then subsitute the numbers into the others and youll get your letter. the numbers are 1-4

      • thank you very much :)

        • no problem if you figure out something for 17 please let me know LOL

          • Yep I’m also stuck on 17 I can’t match the clues to anything!

        • any luck with 18 Mike?

          • power went out and now im stuck on shower again :(

          • and yes 18 was easy, take the large number and divide it by 26….take that number rounded DOWN to where u have no decimal. then multiply it by 26… take that number then add a = 27, b = 28….to see if it adds up…… sucks im restuck on 17 shower again tho.

          • haha whats your live name? i figure they are deleteing answers i can just message it to you mines the same im using on here A LUCKY CH4RM lmfao and i got past 18 now on 19 xD

          • im stuck on #9 will u please give me a hint!!

          • me too!
            does it have anything to do with the time?

          • Compare The Positions Of The Times On A Clock Given To Your
            Controller’s Buttons.

          • that makes no sense.

          • wait,, what? i didnt get that. i got the divide and multiply part. but after that you lost me. can you explain a little clearer. im sorry.

          • you divide each of the numbers given to you by 26
            (which gives you a number with decimals, round DOWN, meaning
            don’t round up, always stay with the number in the one’s
            section, Ex: xxxx1.xxx)
            Then with your new non-decimal number, multiply it by 26 again,
            which will give you a different number then the ones given to
            you in game. Find the difference of the numbers, then find out
            what letter it is.(since in this case Alphabets are coded with

          • Much more helpful. Thank you. :)

          • ne1 out there with help on 17…..please.

          • Its gonna be in this format TTRRP…. it has to do with the length of the words

          • For File #18:
            Divide each number by 26. The digits after the decimal will represent a letter of the alphabet. Not enough? A=1, but it also equals 27, 53, and 79. Divide any of those numbers by 26 and you’ll notice the digits after the decimal remain the same. Therefore those digits must represent the letter a.

          • need help with 18. i dont get mikes hint about divide by 26, then round down and multiply by 26 doesnt get anywhere

          • can u help me with 12 mike??

          • which one is that again?

          • Key:

            A + A = B

            X + A = Y

            B – Y = X
            (B – X) : (A + X) : (A – X) : (B – A) : (Y + X)

          • basic algebra, replace the key letters with the numbers 1-4 and see if the key equations add up correcorrectly…or u can keep readin and ruin the fun: a2, b4, x1, y3

          • Thank u so much !!!!

          • np but the thanks should goto A LUCKY CH4RM for helping me out with it 😉

          • thanks A LUCKY CH4RM !!!! Lol

          • A=2

          • could u help me again on 17 please?

  25. Help With File 11 please?

    • hum a few bars i just got done doing it but i cant remember it

    • nvrmnd its morse code…. the first 9 sequences spells morse code….the last 5 are the letters you need. there are morse code translators on the net that let you enter -‘s or .’s

      • THANKYOU 😀

        • np :)

      • thanks

  26. Clue 16 has a mistake in it as apparently “You need a keyfoard to solve this puzzle”

    • Thanks for finding that error! We’ll be sure to fix it in an upcoming patch.

      • I thought you took out the b on pupose to hint towards using it… whoops.

  27. i am stuck on file 3 any one want to help me

    • … i had a hard time with that one too xD

      • AY

    • Play xbox

  28. any1 on file 21 stuck!!!

    • what about 17? any help?

      • is tht the shower one?

        • yes it is lol

          • Tried that it doesn’t work.
            Just the answer to the first clue (shower) would do then I might figure the other’s out

          • well lets consider what we would need to do the things on the list…shower = water..blue….lawn is grass…green…thats what im thinking….it could be what time to do these things…

          • Am I the only one thinking blue for movie? Or B movie?

          • Shower and Stores both have 6 letters, lawn and shop have 4 letters, and movie has 5 letters, The answer is very simple from there. You need 2 letters in the first two spots that are the same, then 2 more letters that are the same, but different from the first. For example: ttrrf is the answer only not with those letters. I can’t give the answer in the forum.

          • i still dont understand how do you figure it out?

    • You’re not supposed to give out answers here.

  29. Can anyone help with 7 ???

  33. I cannot figure out #6 AT ALL. -___-

  34. Need help with File 7 now.

  35. stuck on file 8…I thought it was XAYYB…apparently not. if X goes first and A and Y love each other so they are together, but Y has a twin so I put another Y and then B at the end b.c it hates X…FML

    • Can you please help me with number seven? its too hard for me i guess :/

    • Y has a twin but it does no necessarily mean they have to be together.

  36. 12 is killing me can anyone help please????

        • can you help with 19?

    • Could you help at all with File 21? I could help you with 23 as soon as I got there.

      • Can you describe 21? I can give you a hint, but I don’t remember which puzzle that was…

        • b x a b x b b y
          x a y a b x a a

          KB1 Q2 QB2 KR1 K2

          • Ah, that one. The KB1, QB2, and such are descriptive notation from a very popular board game; just finding out what that is should make the answer clear.

          • Thank you :)

    • Don’t read into the binary too much; it’s there more for looks than hidden meaning.

  41. Any clues to 17?

  42. Need help with #17 pleae.

  43. Can anyone help with 12 please????

  44. Wow what is 6?!!!!?!??

  47. Looking for info/hints for File #19 please.

  48. Question. When doing the level access thing to gain a higher access is anyone else getting kicked at random from the map like ill have the code entered and waiting then the line goes off the map and i’m kicked from the game completely and have to keep restarting.

    • It happens sometimes. Personally, I just get the IP tracer to level 20 at the start so I wouldn’t risk having to do all of it over if it crashed the game.

  49. Any hints for File 21? Any help is appreciated :)

  50. #19 is ridiculous!!!

    • i need help to dude this is driving me mad!!!!

      • I need help on 18 plz.

        • I actually felt 18 was one of the few puzzles that was fairly straightforward. The top of the puzzle a=1, b=2 etc, is basically describes a wraparound alphabet code. If a is 27 and b is 28 then what is 56083? If using a calculattor, pay close attention to the digits after the decimal.

          • Please…Explain More On This If You Could

  61. I am stumped on File 13, can anyone please give me a hint or the answer :).. Thanks!!

  77. File: 13

    T11w 0fxp!

    I don’t get it. Can someone give me a tiny hint???

    • Sorry didn’t see there was a post about this.

  78. file 23: the binary code one. There has to be a different way to look at this one besides entering the code into a translator. Besides, i’ve tried 4 diffrent translators and they each give me a different answer. Unless anyone knows which exact site to use. Anyways, I’m a bit lost and any hint would be much appreciated.

    • Try looking at the big picture; it’s not always about the numbers.

      • What about 24? I don’t understand at all

        • Each pair of numbers has a significance. It’s unlikely that you’ll recognize what each represents just looking at those numbers, but surely the Internet does.

          • I still don’t get it?

        • I’m saying that if you did a search for each pair of numbers, you’ll find out what it is.

          • I did it gave me latitude and longitude stuff there’s nothing lol

        • I really don’t know what else to say if you make the connection between what you’ve already discovered and A, B, X, and Y. To explain any more would be to just give away the answer.

  79. I NEED HELP ON 11!!!! It looks like morse code, but i don’t know morse code.

  80. i need help on 11!

    • look up a mores code translation chart for the answer

  81. Could I get any help with 19?

  89. I need help on 16 I really don’t get it.

  90. File 18 seems like a programing algorithm.

    • It’s not. Grab a calculator and start diving.

  91. 24 is giving us no end of trouble. we tried latitude and longitude and that got us nowhere. any advice would be much appreciated.

    • Try again. You’re on the right track. A map may not be the best way to go about it, though.

  92. Can anyone help me with 19 please

  93. Q=A

    Sry i forgot what “N” was.
    You wont believe it but just know Q=a, so i tried many combinations.
    Would like to know how you did it

  94. I’ve read this entire page, and not one of these clues will help me with #19. I’m losing my mind! A=1 B=2 C=3, then what appears to be a nonsensical jumble of letters. I’m stuck. My poor little brain hurts.

  95. A=1 B=2 C=3

    • The numbers aren’t always the important thing to see.

      • i still dont get it…..

        • I try to look at the thing as a pattern and all I see is that the 1’s group together in a + formation. That’s all I have and it probably has nothing to do with the answer.

          • Nevermind. Turns out I was 95% right.
