Hey, I've just finished playing through the game and I've started to poke around with the hidden Glyphs in the game. I found the one about Nikolai Tesla and when you pane around with the little magnifying glass to find the apple you can sometimes come across hidden text. Now, I found a text that was encrypted, it read...


JG WUGF KV VQFGXGNQR C DQVVQONGUU UQWTEG QH GPGTIA VGNGHWPMGP YKTGNGUU UVCVKQP

Being a computer scientist, I couldn't resist programming a little code that decrypts this. It turns out its a ceasar cipher (which really is very easy to solve by hand as well). Shift all the letters forward 24 steps (A becomes Y, B becomes X, C becomes Z, D becomes A, etc) and you get the following message

HE USED IT TO DEVELOP A BOTTOMLESS SOURCE OF ENERGY TELEFUNKEN WIRELESS STATION

Now, as it turns out I've already burned through over half the glyphs, and you cant go back and redo the minigames to unlock them. And hence, if there's more encrypted little messages in these pictures I'm kinda curious to what they say.

So here is my proposition. If you have any written down, or if you aren't finished playing through and can write the encrypted text down in this thread, I will decrypt it for your and everyone else in the forum.


Cheers

hmm I already got through the whole game, and can't help much, I did notice many messages hidden I even remember there were binary codes, however I have not studied binary and am not a computer scientist so I can't help much... interest thing though, maybe people can post the hidden messages and you can solve them! I'll try to help as well http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

if you check in the AC hints and tips forum most of these have already been decoded.

I did a little bit of digging and found out the Telefunken Wireless Station gave off a signal that tol the ship Lusitania to sink around 1911 and it was owned by Germans....possibly tied to Templars?
