if someone wants to contribute, you can help me to get the missing solution forums.

https://github.com/xaav2/TBS_forum/ => you can find 2 files, one with the list of topics i have no access to, and a python script to download and store those forums.
If you want to help, simply download & execute and send me the result
(but always review a downloaded code before executing it ;-)

I will update the missing.txt list as soon as i receive new data

Thanks!

Wow... so many years Sad

My last post on the main thread was a few years ago, yet before I checked I thought it was sometime last year.

As you can see, I've not even bothered with challenges after bright shadows and I only managed 40% of that... it was the community that made it. The IRC banter. I'm sure there are others but life gets in the way sometimes. Would love to see it back again.

Edit to add: I see there is an alpha version of sorts hosted here. The one time I don't read an entire thread before replying and it bites me in the arse heh.

Hi All,

in my quest to recover all hidden files from TBS, I'm conffronted with a problem. I managed to solve all JS challenges and recover all hidden files, And I also solved a part of the Java challenges.
My problem is that I'm unable to decompile the last 3 Java applets:

http://www.bright-shadows.net/challenges/applets/quangntenemy_lifeapplet/index.php
http://www.bright-shadows.net/challenges/applets/chimbo_jpacman/index.php
http://www.bright-shadows.net/challenges/applets/quangntenemy_javalesson2/index.php

can someone point me to a decompiler able to decompile thos applets?

I already tested all decompilers available on http://www.javadecompilers.com/ without success

Thanks!

Strange, beacause I can decompile the Applet jars and download source code using http://www.javadecompilers.com/

http://www.bright-shadows.net/challenges/applets/quangntenemy_lifeapplet/LifeApplet.jar
http://www.bright-shadows.net/challenges/applets/chimbo_jpacman/JPacMan.jar
www.bright-shadows.net/challenges/applets/quangntenemy_javalesson2/JavaLesson2.jar

Here the source codes

My bad, there was a problem with the recursive dump, so the *.class contained an HTML file instead of the class. So indeed, no compiler was able to decompile ;-)

I'm willing to help as well.
Should have access to all discussion afterwards ;)
Is there a list of topics not yet crawled?
