Title: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 20, 2018, 05:01:07 PM
You all everybody!

Tagruato.jp, the key webpage in the Cloverfield ARGs is weird again. It shows this error:
(https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9wik4od7p8c/WmOz_qW3ReI/AAAAAAAAjNE/b9PIQqek5AYF3HapI-SDlYnIa_V-FL1awCLcBGAs/s640/Screenshot.jpg)

People at reddit could decypher the hidden message:

"Tokyo – January 18 2018 Tagruato has begun development on a revolutionary new energy technology In what Ceo Ganu Yoshida called a technological great leap foreward for our planet This renewable technology will take at least 4 year to complete with along with another six years International regulatory bodies to bring the powerful revolutionary energy source by april 18 2028"

https://www.reddit.com/r/Cloververse/comments/7rf1w6/something_is_happening_over_at_tagruatos_website/

Looks like show must go on!
Because you can't drink just six!

P.S.

Another website is also found:
www.04182028.com/

You can see a person of interest (?) in the glitchy footage of this website:

Welcome back, Joshminker! Welcome back everybody!
Let's do our best, let's bring structure in chaos. Like in old good UnFiction days! ♥

Let me know if you guys need any add-ons in regards to the forum.

Happy hunting!

Thank for the invite, Kosmopol! I miss the good ol' days of 2007 - 2008


Hey y'all! I haven't been able to do anything so far cause of work and life  :-[  but I'll try to help if y'all find anything. I'll share whatever is relayed to me or I find elsewhere.

Last I read over at Discord and Reddit some sound files and a message within the error message were discovered. I'm unable to attach in here cause they go past the max upload size.

Hello there, dear Sakura! :)

I suppose, we need a board, where we can open threads to various sides. I'll try to do it so we can discuss them separately.

So hyped for this ARG!
Though I'd drop in here and make an account - Forum formatting is so much easier when there's a lot of stuff going on :D
Title: Re: [CLOVERFIELD3] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 21, 2018, 03:43:01 PM
Thank you Dominic (or who ever did it) for making Cloverfield board! You've heard my thoughts! :)
Title: Re: [CLOVERFIELD3] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: ARGWorld on January 21, 2018, 03:43:46 PM
- Added new category (popular) and new board (Cloverfield)
- Made Kosmopol admin/moderator
- Moved topics

Have to look into the file size thing.
Maybe meanwhile upload those externally and link to them?

Let me know how I can help.

D

Thank you again! This is very useful to have a board!
You'll get a cookie (even if I cannot find this emoji atm) :D

A question: is it possible to have a data add-on, in order to upload pictures and screenshots? Or will it be problematic for server size and traffic?
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: ARGWorld on January 21, 2018, 04:14:01 PM
Any idea what file size we’re talking about?
The forum has a default for 192kb max, which probably has fo do wirh stability and security.
Are we talking a couple MB max or more?

Will look into it.
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 21, 2018, 04:30:42 PM
Perhaps we have reduce the filesize indeed (for original we could use external image hostings). Are 1-2 Mb or so possible?
In Unfiction there was a limited space, where older photos were deleted if you added new, which can be not so useful for long time.
Or if there could be some connection to external unlimited webhostings, like imgur or so?
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: ARGWorld on January 21, 2018, 04:36:23 PM
I have set max filesize to 2MB.

Might have to manually delete older attachements in the future, but that’s for then to worry about.  ;D

Post by: kosmopol on January 21, 2018, 04:38:15 PM
Awesome, thank you!
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: ARGWorld on January 21, 2018, 04:51:53 PM
Very welcome!
In general, for every forum, external hosting for images/files (like imgur or Google docs) is always preferred. Especially when this forum becomes more active and more people will upload files, it might get messy. But feel free to upload!

(I will no longer clutter this post with my tech talk. D )
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 21, 2018, 05:03:23 PM
OK :-)

So we have an error code at Tagruato.jp page now:

message contents: 06110-"&0tm_auth=iiWcii7iMgYrWnr6ciiW69zg&gt6_pre2028
%-66*nt--d0--18,=--""n-00610268739661

Any idea what could it be?

Some ideas:

pre2028 - year of the project fulfillment.

Something other?

Post by: Dominic1978 on January 21, 2018, 05:08:19 PM
Could it be (part of) a (dynamic) link?

Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 21, 2018, 05:11:13 PM
Yes perhaps! People noticed, it was changed recently.
We have to compare the page wth this link some days later.
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 22, 2018, 03:29:58 PM
Actually you can open the background image of tagruato.jp: http://www.tagruato.jp/page-and-popup1.jpg

I looked for some hidden codes inside the file or crypto-tracks. Nothing found. But:
if you closely look to the "shadowing" of the text you can see slight differences with original:

Especially if you zoom to the place

d0--18,=--

you will see

d0--17,=--

In other cases it's unknown signs. Perhaps build by some distortion?

hey guys there's a weird change over at tagruato.jp the error messages and such is gone. Now it's just a logo with a drop down of languages and when you select a language it says "tagruato.jp says: attempting to resolve technical difficulties. Try again shortly."
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 23, 2018, 11:40:43 AM
Awesome! Is it perhaps a hint by PMs that the things wil be going on soon? *hope*
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 24, 2018, 07:37:39 PM
OK, people, we've a nice update of Tagruato.
A error again, but with another background.

Error text:

Quote
Browser Incompatibility  415 Unsupported Media Type
Unhandled exception has occured in your browser. The page was not loaded properly due to an unexpected error.

message contents:
Expected(col;load;running?=HUI239BT?live%--D'nt--d0--17.=--..,.,n-000102087393)

D'nt--d0--17 sounds like l33t for "Don't do it".

In the background we see some news from Tagruato page.

Some minutes later the background became static

For archival sake, in case there is a pattern with the error messages, these are the different "message contents" that showed up on the error box at tagruato.jp:

January 18:
Code: [Select]
06110-.,&0tm_auth=6lOH7iMgYrWnr6ciiW69zg&gt6_pre2028%-66*nt--d0--18.=--..,.,n-0061026873966
January 19:
Code: [Select]
06110-.,&0tm_auth=iiWcii7iMgYrWnr6ciiW69zg&gt6_pre2028%-66*nt--d0--18.=--..,.,n-00610268739661
January 24:
Code: [Select]
Expected(col;load;running?=HUI239BT?live%--D*nt--d0--17.=--..,.,n-000102087393)
The most interesting pattern here is the similarity between the % sections of the messages:

Code: [Select]
%-66*nt--d0--18.=--..,.,n-0061026873966
%-66*nt--d0--18.=--..,.,n-00610268739661
%--D*nt--d0--17.=--..,.,n-000102087393

Additionally, the first two error messages are presented as the error that the site reported, while the third error message is presented as Expected(...). That is, the first two messages are like "here is the error we got", and the third message is like "here is what we had expected".

Another interesting feature of the background image are the company logos on the bottom of the press release, which match what can be seen on archived Tagruato pages from previous ARGs:

I definitely thought that as well. Could be a message saying don't launch...
Had another thought about the pre vs. live part of the error. Long shot, but maybe once we find this guy he could go "live" on a youtube page at certain times pertaining to the code established?

We have an update ladies and gents! :)

Hello everyone! Great to be back !! The latest update to the Tagruato.jp site shows us that TIDO wave is back and fighting Tagruato's latest attempts and destroying our eco world with some new energy development they are touting.

(https://s10.postimg.org/vdghfqrtl/ZL3xo_WV.png)

Interesting to note that if Rafu Funaki is still alive as is TIDO, then its a good chance so ois Le Bandit Vert and Les Guerrieres de mere terre..
Another Tag vs Tido ARG?

Still a long way to go, but I like that they have returned to this first ARG playbook..

Post by: kosmopol on January 27, 2018, 07:35:48 PM
Awesome!
I'm glad TIDOWave are in action again.
The whole thing ended.. abruptly back to the Cloverfield 1 ARG. Even Jamie Lascano (drinking Slusho) could just "see" her boyfriend Teddy sailing aways.

So  now we have to watch out for CEI Cloverfield Energy Initiative.

I think that we should have an ARG Thus Far thread here, where there's only updates on everything that has happened. There was one on Reddit, but it seems to have disappeared (or was it just unpinned?), and the one in Discord hasn't been updated either. Anyone want to make one? Nobody that's following the major events seems to be keeping a log.
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kosmopol on January 29, 2018, 04:52:12 PM
Good idea. Do you mean from the beginning? (Cloverfield 1) or from the beginning of this ARG?.
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: hinoai on January 30, 2018, 12:35:00 AM
From the beginning of this ARG for now. Eventually it would be awesome to resurrect our old guides, though!
Title: Re: [TRAIL] Clovervield again? Tagruato.jp
Post by: kg on January 30, 2018, 01:00:25 PM
I can create it! I wrote up the "Current ARG Updates and Leads" post that's on the Reddit right now, so I'll transfer that over here and update both when necessary.
