    I have been working on this myself for sometime, but nothing good came out of it. When you decode the BASE64 code of unsolved images, no big string comes out like that of solved images. The developers knew that we would go for it to cheat and I think that's why they made it like that. If anyone has breakthrough with this, please let us know.

    Mike tweeted: "LP 2K12"

    Maybe this was said before but could it be that K=0?

    Living Things is still on track. What it means though if this is the cipher solution is unknown.

    K = thousand.
    2k12 = two thousand and twelve.

    As far as we know Living Things can be anything right?

    Hi _Depression,

    I know this stuff with the numbers
    I haven't seen the base64 thing but thx.

    I think why my post was so important is the fact,
    that if there is someone who is good at base64 he could probably find out the last 3-4 Images before they were released
    and we could complete all lines of numbers.

    That was my intention ;)
    I think we all know now how the single cover art will look like :)

    It is not that hard to figure out the code from the image, but I'm not able to do this.
    There are also a few website who code an Image into base64 but not the other way (code to image).
    We just need the link from the image and get the numbers and voila :D

    I hope so much that someone could make it :D

    And thx again for taking me so friendly into this community.
    I love LPA so much. I never search another site for LP news. THIS IS THE ONLY PAGE WHO KNOWS WHAT LP FANS WANT!

    Exactly. Would be funny if it was a hint that the 00000 0000 lines in the puzzle reference the letter K, but that's on the same crazy scale that Chester's height has something to do with it. :lol:

    Yeah you are absolutly right with what you said but there is one little funny fact :).....

    The images HAS TO BE ON THE INTERNET.
    So we just need to find the link. It is not easy to get the long base64 strings but there is always a way... I know it ;)

    I think that it isn't necessary that all the images has to be on the internet... don't you think that someone would have found it if they were there?... it can be possible that they're editing the page everytime they upload a new one (a proof of that would be the XXXXX XXXX numbers... they appear with a new image)... I don't know... that's my opinion...

    Also, the only thing I've found on the BASE64 code was the .xmp file info... I found it yesterday... xD

    I did some more research on the internet and from what I can see, the image link for the unsolved section is just a 1px transparent GIF file. They haven't uploaded the actual file yet.

    Ok now we know this, too.

    It's a little bit sad, but ok we have to wait a little longer for the final Image and THE LAST NUMBERS

    Someone here asked (way back on page xxxx XD), if we may have gotten the video as a reward for coming up with "Living Things", which would answer the question if "Living Things" is the right word. I had another idea though. Could it be that we got the LP2K12 video for the 12th puzzle? The "LinkinPark2012" seems to be a big part of the album promotion this year, as the LP team and members all use the hashtag when talking about the new album on Twitter.

    sorry to disappoint you, but that won't (can't) happen. base64 <-> "clear text" (or image) is a conversation/transformation and not a "if i've got enough i can generate the rest" encryption.

    i thought that the numbers could be a base 85 encoded text-string (see my first post), but it seems that stl22 is on track, and his solution is a very different direction than what i had in mind (each combination could hold 4 characters, if it would be base85 and if the two/three numbers had to be combined to give a number below 4,294,967,296)
