    Another part has entered the game! Someone called Firebreaker514 (@firebreaker514) has suspiciously posted some sort of report under on of Blazar Focused's tweets saying:
    The same thing was also posted at around the same time by Hermes1984 (Imgur: The magic of the Internet) on Imgur, but in Cybertronian. Seems they're the same guy. I believe his other posts were brought up before.
    Also, 24 days ago he also posted this:
    Quite mysterious all this, but Blazar seems to be being watched by someone.

    Hey guys, I’d just like to clear some things up on here like I did on Twitter. I am Not part of the ARG, I’ve been tryna decipher it and finally made a Twitter account to figure it out more. I used to have a TFW account named Lockdown514 but I think I deleted it.

    @arun09345 should be able to vouch for me as we both were deciphering it long before I made the Twitter account. Apologies for any confusion

    Now that is seems that Blazar is finally aware of Rebellium and Hermes1984, and that Rebellium is proactively playing damage control, I wonder what the next step will be?

    Rebellium’s logo changed too, new text behind it, but I can’t solve it cos the resolution is really bad

    Some of you guys have already seen it, but a post from a few days ago.
    https://twitter.com/BlazarF/status/1449480994961166337?t=ZOzgHgXVk8IHC3JS_e1pvw&s=19
    It has some scrambled audio of what appears to be an argument at the end. They sound...familiar...
    We also have this to decipher. Unfortunately, I can't make any sense of it. Maybe someone here knows how to read these symbols?

    (I'm not actually part of the ARG, but it is fun to play along with these things.)

    EDIT: Looks like multiple strings of code in said video

    One of the voices reminds of either G1 Starscream or one of the insecticons. The other I have no idea who it could be.

    Hermes1984 on imgur posted a new picture, but I’ve got no clue what it is

I’m Pretty sure that’s all of them:

    Rebelliums logo text is really hard to read. Here’s what I’ve got so far:

    “We are aware of the recent situation and it confirms we have even less time than previously thought. We are moving up the timeline. Additional support has ????”

    note: the question marks are where I can’t decipher any more

    Makes me wonder if this will run anywhere if translated properly and put in the right order. I'll get on it tomorrow morning. Good to know I wasn't the only one who caught 6 snapshots of different text though.

    Edit: Gave a discord server the screenshots in case they get bored and decode it before I wake up

    I’ve managed to decode the first entry
    Note 1: ‘entry 1’ is not apart of the code, it was just a way to separate the entries
    Note 2: The word ‘si9eof’ below may not be accurate to how it’s meant to be translated (I think it’s meant to be a nine)

    Entry as follows:


    Entry 1


    Dock stream . . 0 > ;


    15 if < dock == - _ >


    16 {

    17 Return _ ;

    18 }

    19

    20 Int port = 54000 ;

    21 String IP Address

    = “192.160.1”

    22

    23 Dock Addr_in hint;

    24 Hint.Sin_Family

    =Af_Inet;

    25 Hint.Sin_Port =

    Htons < Port > ;

    26 Inet_Pton

    < Af_Inet . .

    IP Address. C_Str <

    . . & Hint. Sin_Addr >

    ;

    27

    28 Int Connect Res =

    Connect < Dock . .

    < Dock Addr Decepticon > &

    Hint . . Si9eof

    < Hint >> ;

    29 If < Connect Res

    == - _ >

    30 {


    I’m thinking it’s computer code but that’s all I can do atm, it took me ages and I want a break lmao

    It's definitely some kind of code of some sort. The numbers represent the line numbers. So since it starts at 15, it's probably not the beginning of the program. One of those images might be the actual start of it. I'll see tomorrow if I can figure out what it'll do (unless someone else gets to it first).

    Honestly, it could just be a made up programming language. But it might still be traceable.

    Credit to CowabungaCarmen on the tfwiki discord server for cracking this one. We absolutely do not have a complete code here, so there goes that theory. This was the first one to pop up in the video aka first in @Firebreaker514 's screenshots. It looks to be C++?

    All credit to @Prime Radiant for the admittedly disappointing breakthrough.the code Carmen deciphered is actually C, and from the Linux kernel aka "the foundation of the operating system".
    sched.c - kernel/sched.c - Linux source code (v2.6.0) - Bootlin

    The code @Firebreaker514 posted is similar.
    "This is two bits of code:
    1. What to do when an Android device docks somewhere
    2. Socket programming setup for a home router (IP address 192.168.0.1 is typically an intranet router), running something port 54000, which is available for arbitrary use (anything up to 65536 is okay)"

    It looks like there may be a few words like Autobot or Decepticon sprinkled in the remaining ones, but really? There has to be some payoff for this effort, and ATM it's not visible. We still know almost nothing about this world or even what this is for. Is it for a game? A movie? An app? If the final four follow the same pattern, I don't see a need to break codes for this thing.

    Thanks, wreck. To be honest, the snippet with "Dock_stream" looks like docking code for Android, but I can't find examples anywhere. It definitely has some peculiarities I don't see often in C/C++/C#/Java.The rest of that snippet is setting up an internet connection (socket), and the "hint" with "si9eof" is still vexing me. I thought maybe the "9" was a "g", because Linux code has a lot of "signals", like SIGINT (interrupt). "EOF" usually means "end of file" in a Linux sense, but "SIGEOF" doesn't mean anything in Linux terms.

    The weird caps in the variables makes me think of a PowerShell script on Windows, but that's all I got there.

    100% certain about that pull_task snippet though.

    Looks like Blazar got his video to post, whatever was blocking it ended up stopping. I didn't spot any differences in the video as far as I could tell.

    Also Hermes1984 posted another orange line, about half the length of the first one. Both these look like they may be compressed in some way, but I really have no idea what they are.

    I thought they were stretched out images, but you could at least see what they’re meant to be to begin with
