the flames on the borders could be binary. long flames representing 1, short flames representing 0. Where to start is the question. Or purple flames being 1/0 and green flames being 1/0. Could be a double message between these too, but again where to start? The outside border looks more chaotic then the inside border. The likelihood of there being a message contained with in the inside border is greater then the outside.


Starting in the left top corner on the inside border you get the following going clockwise:

(TOP) 0110110110 LEAF 100010110110110011

(RIGHT SIDE) 110111110110110111110010

(BOTTOM) 100011100010110111110111110111110

(LEFT SIDE) 011100 LEAFTAILLEAF 1101 LEAF 101

All together it looks like: 0110110110 LEAF 1000101101101100111101111101101101111100101000111000101101111101111101111100111 00 LEAFTAILLEAF 1101 LEAF 101

Without the leaves: 0110110110100010110110110011110111110110110111110010100011100010110111110111110 1111100111001101101


Going Counterclockwise starting from the top right corner you get:

(TOP) 110011011011010001 LEAF 0110110110

(LEFT SIDE) 101 LEAF 1011 LEAFTAILLEAF 001110

(BOTTOM) 011111011111011111011010001110001

(RIGHT SIDE) 010011111011011011111011

All together it looks like: 110011011011010001 LEAF 0110110110101 LEAF 1011 LEAFTAILLEAF 001110011111011111011111011010001110001010011111011011011111011

Without the leaves: 11001101101101000101101101101011011 001110011111011111011111011010001110001010011111011011011111011

and also :

Assuming these numbers represent letters you get the following when you divide the two clockwise/counterclockwise sequences into sections of 8. 2 numbers are left over, shit, so many straws to grab.
clockwise:
01101101 = M
10100010 = ? NA
11011011 = ? NA
00111101 = ? NA
11110110 = ? NA
11011111 = ? NA
00101000 = ? NA
11100010 = ? NA
11011111 = ? NA
01111101 = ? NA
11110011 = ? NA
10011011 = ? NA
01 = ? NA
counterclockwise:
11001101 = ? NA
10110100 = ? NA
01011011 = ? NA
01101011 = k
01100111 = g
00111110 = ? NA
11111011 = ? NA
11101101 = ? NA
00011100 = ? NA
01010011 = S
11101101 = ? NA
10111110 = ? NA
11 = ? NA
CONCLUSION: TLDR: these aren't letters or the sequencing is wrong

7x9 chess board looks real important. 

Quick google search brings us to this wiki website, and we end up at a chess variant called yari Shogi.

http://www.eglebbk.dds.nl/program/cvwiki//index.php?title=Yari_Shogi

More info on Yari Shogi can be found on this wiki page.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yari_shogi

But if you check this wiki, this page was only added on March 10 2015.  If you check the main page it used to be empty and just recently got all this chess stuff added.

Is this page interesting?  http://www.eglebbk.dds.nl/program/chess-index.html

His blog has only posts in March 2015.

Hmm, I'm a new member so I don't know anything about what's been found so far.

Maybe just a coincidence, but it's strange how the image has so many themes in common with the second book of the harry potter series.

The painting is a chamber of secrets. The secret is the private key we are seeking.

 - Ron, Harry, and Hermione play a game of chess.
 - They are ensnared in a vine called the "devil's snare"
 - Dumbledore's phoenix punctures the eyes of the basilisk
 - Gryffindor corresponds to the element of Fire (http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Hogwarts_Houses)

Ah, I got em mixed up. It's still a little weird that the painting has that many themes in common with the series.

Yeah, there's also flames in the new image and the new award address is guess what??? 1FLAME

Apart from that there's actual black tiles (instead of blue) that nobody seems to have noticed (or noticed but ain't telling until they figure out what it means).

That being said, I will say this for one last time and I will be on my way....
YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME!!!


EDIT: the symbols on the corners are Greek - Meandros....

Hi guys. I ran the final clue image through stegdetect and it seems to think there's a jphide message hidden in there. Haven't been able to stegbreak it though.

the flames on the borders could be binary. long flames representing 1, short flames representing 0. Where to start is the question. Or purple flames being 1/0 and green flames being 1/0. Could be a double message between these too, but again where to start? The outside border looks more chaotic then the inside border. The likelihood of there being a message contained with in the inside border is greater then the outside.

I don't think it is binary (at least not directly).

Flames come in four combinations of colors, as I can see it:
(inside color) - (outside color)
blue - yellow
blue - red
green - yellow
green - red

Also, they come in two lengths - short and long. That makes 3 bits per flame. It can be mapped to binary on 8! = 40320 ways.

One example mapping is:
bys 000
brs 001
gys 010
grs 011
byl 100
brl 101
gyl 110
grl 111

(where bys = blue-yellow-short, grl = green-red-long, etc..)

40320 combinations does not seem too hard to brute force, but how to check if output is correct? ASCII?

Nice!

So you used your (a little bit over two years) account to tell us that?
(Your very first post after 2+ years, nice!)

Apart from that you are doing the same mistake you did on your first bullshit ARG....
you are schooling them yet you have no intention of giving up the reward.

Apart from that, you DO NOT BRUTE FORCE, you just use your wits.
WTF happened to you?
No rules this time?

you are doing the same mistake you did on your first bullshit ARG....
you are schooling them yet you have no intention of giving up the reward.

I'm new to this. What's your theory?

You seem to be implying that 9500 is the same person who created the contest.

What would be their motivation? How does the scam work? What's it in for them?

LOL!

The same that was for the "pony" girls in the previous contest, which was basically the same person as the OP but just trying to give everyone a push because they were stuck....

Motivation? Publicity....
She needs it badly, but she is getting bad publicity because she didn't put up.


PS: Don't even try it this time, I am using open internet connection  Wink
