Just connect to the BBS and output the data to a text file. I would, but I'm at school atm.
Well, I got a guy turning ASCII into sounds for us on the steam forums: [url]http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=13769679&postcount=2529[/url]
[QUOTE=Luafox;20511900]It wouldn't work to use the ascii from image generator then? Unless someone wants to type all that ascii.[/QUOTE] Here's the raw ASCII: [url]http://kevin.fobby.net/portal_puzzle/raw_bbs_logs/xkeeper_turns_back_to_binary/[/url] EDIT: Apparently, that is. I found the link from here: [url]http://netshroud.wordpress.com/2010/03/02/portal-radio-transmission-update/[/url]
This is bizarre. I was last on here just after the update hit and found the signal for the first 8. The pictures you found are incredible. I've got that slightly scared undercurrent of a conspiracy inside me.
I'm really looking forward to someone rounding this up in a nice 100-page article that i will take with me to the grave and read on my children and grandchildrens bedside..
Have the ASCII files been turned into sound soon?
the guy on the steam forum is working on it, he says he can hear voices. [editline]09:09AM[/editline] [url]http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=13769748&postcount=2534[/url]
I clicked log 3 and it brought me to a jumbled mess. And at the bottom was this [code]CONFIDENTIAL October 17th, 1976 Re: Human Enrichment & Testing Initiative, Resource Acquisitions 1.

Made a quick video about one of the first radios and what happens when you move it around: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbDJ8pqwLkA[/media] Working on a video with all the locations and how to get the achievement. (read the description and notes left in the video on youtube)

Figured that out when it was just finished rendering.

I think in Portal 2/Episode 3, GlaDOS might be a friendly, She might be one of those Robot things, [img]http://img706.yfrog.com/img706/2192/android.png[/img] She might of replace a robots AI with hers
[QUOTE=selby3962;20511576]Bottom left it says "(composite image by auricon! yay!)". [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auricon[/url] Any connection?[/QUOTE] I think that's just the user's name who combined all the ascii pictures he got from the BBS into that composite image, not something actually put in by Valve. but if I'm wrong, Auricom was the name of a research organization in the Wipeoput series of games.
Apparently someone on the steam forums got all the info out of that thing with the Hobos. [url]http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=13766997&postcount=1[/url]
On the "lab" picture in the last page, there's a problem - it's still the wrong way round. Rotate it 90 degrees backwards so that the Aperture Science logo is facing the right way up.

Its like "Lost Experience"!
When I came home from school I literally begun crying of joy when I saw this, jesus christ this is awesome. I don't wanna have my psychotic breakdown so excuse me, I shall head to the forest nearby my house and scream on top of lungs until I throw up blood, then I'll smash a stone to bits while happy.
I was about to sleep. Then I saw this. I'm not sleeping anymore.
Well, apparently the guy on the steam forums gave up on turning ASCII into sounds, seeing as he failed a bit. What a pussy.

But, way to hype this bigger than it is.
Yeah, I know, but I really felt like screaming/yelling though. :v: Damn, this is interesting.
this is the time when i want to feel all smart and shit, finding clues while they lead to even more clues. but i don't know any of this decoding things :'(
Same here, bud. :frown:
