Central projector morse

From Stalburg Wiki

This page is about the projector in Central, in the control room.

When the VHS tape is inserted into the projector and turned on, this animated texture appears on the screen and a faint morse message plays in the background. (This texture extracted from effects/central_video_1.vtf. This version is not animated.)

The video is of the shadow of a fan projected onto a concrete wall, and what may either be two written L characters, or two doors with light projected through them in the background.

Cracking the code[edit]

After checking through the spectrogram with Sonic Visualizer, a faint morse signature can be seen.

This is the raw morse, transcribed manually:

-.-- --- ..- -.-. .- -. -. --- - ..-. .. -. -.. .-. .. --. .... - .- -. ... .-- . .-. --- .-. - .... . --.- ..- . ... - .. --- -. -... ..- - .. ..-. -.-- --- ..- -.-. .- -. ..-. .. -. -.. .... .. -- -.-- --- ..- -.-. .- -. .- ... -.- -- .- -.-- -... . .... . --. .. ...- . ... -.-- --- ..- - .... .. ... .--. .-.. .- -.-. . .. ... -.-- --- ..- -.-. .- -. ... . . .- ....


This is what this translates to:

YOUCANNOTFINDRIGHTANSWERORTHEQUESTIONBUTIFYOUCANFINDHIMYOUCANASKMAYBEHEGIVESYOUTHISPLACEISYOUCANSEEAH

Let's clear it up a bit.

"You cannot find (the) right answer or the (right) question, but if you can find him you can ask (him). Maybe he gives you (the) place (where) you can see AH (Andrew Herts?)"

What does it mean?[edit]

This seems to link in with the "right answer, right question, right person" problem. Who is "him?"
