Strangest hack ever.

Got to admit, the black screen was extremely weird.
I immediately recognized the excerpt from the .txt file as being a JPEG header. Simply renaming it to .jpg yielded no result, though. I thought that maybe it had been opened in Notepad and saved as .txt. Now, Notepad has this bad habit of corrupting binary data when you save it. It replaces nulls (0x00) with spaces (0x20). So I fired up a hex editor and replaced all 0x20 bytes with 0x00. Obviously, some of the 0x20 bytes are supposed to be there, so the image is was still corrupted - but it was viewable! Here's the result:



I tried toying around with it for a little while without getting any further. Finally, I turned to Google Image Search and searched for JPEGs of that exact size (327x277). The second result struck me as being extremely similar to the top part of the corrupted image:



What do you think? Do we have a winner?

Here are the search results: link

If you think about it,

"Victim #1. Eyeballs were unable to be found. The victim was found lying on her carpet. Causes of the death unknown, handmarks with unidentifiable fingerprints were found all over the corpse."

That description really ties in with the picture.

What do you guys think?
This stuff just evolved from a funny story to some serious creepy shit, but it still makes sense.
The creator of this must be really dark..
HSI: SMWC... I guess i won't sleep tonight.
I'm the one who removed the hack, by the way :P

Obviously it breaks the submission guidelines, but at the same time, I think even for what it's intended to be (creepy/disturbing on a subtle level) some things could have been executed better. I dunno though, maybe I'm just a bit jaded due to having played the thoroughly disturbing games "Yume Nikki" and "Yume 2kki" all the way through.
I find this both creepy and hilarious. The fact that the image and the message after Iggy's castle are related is really sketchy. Maybe the other cryptic messages had something to do with this? Maybe this was based on some world event or messed up story? Whatever it may be, it's... different from your average hacks, though different is most likely an understatement in this case.
The only reason why this hack is creepy is because of the story. Good work on SMW's first creepypaste, Adam.
Here's a crazy idea.

This hack breaks a variety of submission rules, but so does Chaos CompleXX. CC was featured because a great deal of effort was put into. . .parts of it. Such is the case with this hack (like changing the header name, and that that whole JPEG business). We should re-upload and feature this, just for the fun of it.

Or just DC the thread. That makes more sense, because you get the story as well.

That makes two of you.
Seriously,this is creepy...
Anyways,do we have a way of contacting the maker of this...whatever?(Does SMWC log IP addresses or other stuff?)
He must be a mad scientist,because I couldn't figure out what that .txt was about,and he seems to like submitting disturbing stuff...

...I don't see a problem with that,as long as we put a warning and disclaimer in the description.There are lots of visitors out there who're not used to this kind of stuff(err...kinda like me(12)...).
Oops,I got ninja'd...

Good point.But as I said,put in the description that it's a joke hack...

Ugh,I wish I never saw this,it creeped the snot out of me...I'm going to play something GOOD and positive now...

EDIT:It would be nice to have captions with that vid...
EDIT#2:Hey,has anyone tried to find out what's up with that black screen ending with LM?I'm too lazy to find a hex editor and I deleted the hack out of fright(Yahrly).Maybe there's some outtakes!#w{=3}

I would support this being featured. I love creepypasta. It's so tasty.

Anyway, I showed this to a friend of mine on another forum, and he had a thought about the Text Boxes, he thinks they are little hints. I personally can't say anymore because it's so short. It's a shame.

I support the creator of this hack. I hope to see, "More" from him.

If you read through the entire thread, you'll see that it's probably a really creepy .jpg probably related to the "Castle Beaten" message put into the format of a .txt.
I'm the friend he's talking about.

I love creepypastas/weird crap like this, so I had to join in on the fun.

But yeah, to elaborate on that, the text box in YOSHI'S said Notepad, right? And when that .txt file was posted in Notepad, we got that really odd image.

Just a theory, I may be overlooking things.

No,I did read through the whole thread.What I meant was that I wouldn't have the brains to know what all that gobbledegook was.
But just out of curiousity,has anyone been able to render the .txt itself as a .jpg non-corrupted?

In the room with just tiny doors run right. The wall is a pipe. In the next room there is a random fall, you guessed it, the fall is a pipe (Well, in the middle) after that the game crashes.

And fuck that image scared me.

Just to clarify,the "next room" doesn't have a random fall,the floor is just cut-off'd,and it's not in the middle of the room,it's at the far left.

Your avatar scared me too.
I think this hack just raised the bar of giving people nightmares.
I have some work to do.
