ArmA 3: new ARG - Things we know so far.

Recommended Posts

Probably someone started a brute force or dictionary attack ^^

If someone is trying to brute force it we will probably still be here waiting for it to finish while ArmA3 is already released. :p

Embassy Freight the business site where possibly the ARG was hosted, is also down. I hope it's not the fault of our community.

To confirm, that is a valid business site build by JH as far as I know, I've visited it before. If that one got hit by actions trying solving the ARG that would be bad indeed. Hopefully this is not the case.

An army of engineers are being flown in as we speak.

Dear Jerry,

the power supply was causing the problem and is now fixed. Your server is back online and you can login into the system.

Kind Regards

A question to clear things up.

Is Jerry Hopper an actual, living person or is it an alias someone has taken for various BIS events?

I assumed it was a fake ID for a PR-character.

Also, the embassy freight website is up again.

The rv4a4.org site remains offline.

EDIT:

Rv4a3.org is back up. Let's not crash it this time.

I can assure you that Mr. Hopper (Jerry, not Dennis) is a long time member of this community. He's definately no "fake character" for this ARG.

rv4a3.org seems to be a hint for Real Virtuality 4 and Arma 3?

Yup, that much is clear, aswell as m26 seemingly being a hint at "Station Mike 26" on Stratis. The only thing that's unknown (at least to me) is the "node-42" part. Could be a simple reference to "the answer to the universe and everything", but it might also have some deeper meaning.

Just found this:

Node 42

The last node before the end of the world

Maybe the world ends in Arma 3?

This might be from interest, placebo posted this over at the Developement blog & reveals thread:

[...]There is news on the alpha coming out a little later so stay tuned.

Might be related to the ARG...

Edit: The game server who gave us the link to http://m26.node-42.rv4a3.org/ is gone

The ARG will culminate into an Alpha reference. Infos will be released anyway, the ARG is just to maintain people busy instead of asking everyday for news.

Earlier mentioned plane crash was 6-18-1992. Anyone thinks this is relevant?

Next time the server comes online is it worth seeing if we can somehow see who is stationed at the base (the players name).

When jerry hopper first posted that he had seen a server he posted another picture,he was using a program to try get the names of players but the NAT was too strict

2. Jerry Hopper are somehow involved

3. Jerry is in fact a shipping tycoon(wait what?)

I don't know if this helps or has been mentioned earlier but I tried to login with my BI account and the terminal (at m26.node-42.rv4a3.org) seems to recognize email adresses, and automatically makes them clickable and blue, like links on wikipedia :confused: But I didn't get in though :(

The FTP server is up again... nothing changed.

(EDIT: If anyone knows what we should do there... maybe communicate with the one behind this ;) ? )
