"Alwarren:Good point, especially since both paintings where done in 1814, which is one of the numbers."

Oh right! I missed the 1814 part! I was focused on the Goya-Madrid connection. Thanks.

Changing the direction slightly - Next hack: Saturday, May 14th 2011, 18:00 CEST

Wasnt there a mention about some conference hosted by Bohemia Interactive in Prague to which some special guest is coming? The date was May 14th - its somewhere in the thread.

Would the next "hack" be this conference?

EDIT: Thanks for explanation

EDIT2: If im right with that press-conference then that strengthens my opinion on this ARG being not-well designed. It would seem that we might have as well ignored all this and the final result would be the same. There is no sense of acomplishment, if the game is rigged so it cant be "won" by players.

There is a press conference scheduled for May 16th, if that's what you are referring to..? At 1900 hours CET (source: ArmA 2 @Facebook)

Yup - thats what i was thinking about - my mistake with linking it to next hack then!

Good to know we still have one more hack to solve and possibly "win" the game.

1814 GOYA MADRID SPANIARD - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Third_of_May_1808 might be a better link. The spaniard almost certainly refers to the man in the center of this painting. It is also by far the more well known of the two paintings, and has inspired works by other great painters.

I'm getting Deja Vu from the last ARG, but if Reynolds is referring to a director and not the PMC character, perhaps they are making a Resistance Movie? Of course, that doesn't take into account any of the other evidence, such as the time travelling hackers, etc.

Then there would be a book too... Duffy - author, Reynolds - Director and there is Lean -Director

Well, I mean, there was a note to Reynolds saying to draft some guy. Maybe there are two Reynolds' in this ARG. But if you're talking to a director, telling him to draft someone, what would that mean?

There is an actor named Scott E. Miller that's the right age but he doesn't look the same. He looks similar, though.

edit: Oh! I'm off the evidence. The note says R, not Reynolds. Nevermind.

There is a clear ordering intended for the phrases, I have put together the following:

2003 BELARUS DUFFY BIELSKI

2002 NOGOVA BOHEMIA TROSKA

1991 NOTTINGHAMSHIRE REYNOLDS HOOD

1962 OTTOMAN LEAN LAWRENCE

1958 CLARA CASILLAS GUEVARRA

1943 NERETVA LOHR TITO

1814 MADRID GOYA SPANIARD

1462 TARGOVISTA MEHMED VLAD

Notice any patterns emerging?

And I assume MALDEN and MILLER are two more words for us.

EDIT: MALDEN REYNOLDS MILLER ? No idea, just grasping at straws. Haven't really been following all the bits and pieces :P

EDIT 2 (since nobody else is saying anything, lol)

It appears to be a relationship where in one location (first term), an entity (third term) "loses" to another power or entity, or suffers as a direct consequence of action by said entity (the second term). But in losing, is actually "winning" a larger struggle.

For instance, the Lawrence of Arabia instance specifically (i think) refers to when he is tortured (and then released) by the Ottomans. Since that is really the only time in the movie he is IN the ottoman empire that I can recall.

Or Vlad Tepes, being driven out of power at Targoviste, who also participated in the end of Ottoman aspirations in the region (under Mehmed). No, I have no idea about what any of that means. I just wiki'd it for the purposes of this thread. ;p

okay, here are some half-cocked theories...

all are related to some "resistance" fighters

all are related to battles, but I wouldn't expect any less at this point.

all have years, the fighter and a place

off things

one has a painter name - Goya

two have director names - Lean and Reynolds

one is an author - Duffy

and one is a game company - Bohemia

3 - are direct battle references

5 - references to battles

totally off the wall ideas at this point - maybe the clue is Resistance... so, either that is a remake of OFP:Resistance or sequel to it...

...or it is resistance as in fiction, i.e. physics - the only thing I have to back that up is the ascii wall (trying to link other clues together here).

Now, let total brain fry go! melting in 3, 2, 1...

Anyone noticed that BIS likes to have different time era in it's hack. Time capsule that was buried, a poem from 18th AD Persia, 1821 Greece ,from imperial china to vietnam war, and now this various years and era in history, plus the timeborer, timeseeker thingie.

Time seems to be the only linkage from all the hacks. Or is it just me that is massively confused.... ( i think the mass confuser is working real fine)

There does seem to be a clear indication of specific events in which one party suffers or is defeated, but ends up winning a larger struggle. Beyond that I agree my above post offers tenuous connections in places.

I've summarized the names, places and dates on the wiki entry to help people understand the apparent links discussed in this thread, that the community has used to sort the data obtained in this hack. Hopefully it's concise enough to explain indicate why the four words link to those who've missed the discussion.

Gonna leave it for tonight as it's late/early: but feel free to expand on the points.

Just glad I have the day off tomorrow...

I'm still not entirely convinced I've got the relationships between the people fully resolved, is there a theme perhaps with 'resting places'? Seems evident on the wiki from a few places on the list. I'm not familiar enough with all the subjects in question to say one way or the other at this point.

EDIT: I think It's probably going too far into it though at this point. I think we might need to look at the evidence about Malden, Miller, the Astute, Astute:statue anagram, etc, to finally be able to put some pieces together.

I don't know if there would or wouldn't be another clue after all this to help us put everything together, but the persian 'goodbye' might indicate that there will NOT be.

EDIT 2: So, here's what I'm thinking currently. The events of OFP did not play out as they should have. What happened there led to something happening later in that region involving China, Greece, Persia, and/or Turkey that was not supposed to happen, and the balance of power has dangerously shifted.

SO the idea is that miller was supposed to die at malden, it was supposed to have been nuked.

That ties him in with the other name/date/place sets from today's hack. He would have died there, and the Soviets winning would have been temporary but prevented something much worse?

EDIT 3: Err, whoops. OFP is set in 1985, so it can't be. Unless he was the child of someone from OFP.
