Hack This Game Hints Week 1

Posted April 26th, 2011 in HackThisGameHints by Ryan Stokes

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!

      • Koheesion says:

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

        • Kubie says:

          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. Zico says:

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

  20. Shane says:

  24. Mike says:

  47. Mike says:

    Looking for info/hints for File #19 please.

  48. A LUCKY CH4RM says:

    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.

    • ShinryuReishiki says:

      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. Lady says:

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

  50. A_ESPY says:

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

  78. timmy tom says:

    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.
