MISSION EXPIRED
The following are hints for the stages you are on.
Select them to view them.
Remember, if you are stuck there are references to things that happened in earlier stages.
Also, google for Mac History. Read the content given to you. It is very helpful!
http://www.majhost.com/gallery/Shaded/Bob/mission10.png
P.S There are two similes on each website! That's right we have 2x the similes than the official missions.
The Clock
1. There is a second smiley on the bottom of the page
2. The big smiley on the main page needs the switches to be flipped in a certain order
3. The Clock image is the key to the order
4. The order is 6, 6, 9, 9
5. Or 6 O'clock, 6 O'clock, 9 O'clock, 9 O'clock
The First File
1. Read the spotlight comments or on the page you downloaded it from (Select all the text)
2. Unzip it
The Project
1. Google around, Wikipedia is your friend!
2. Google about the Note Cards look for when the Blue Meanies and the Pink team where both working together.
3. Starts with a C
4. Project Name is: Copland
The Radio
1. The Radio Channel relates to the file from the Project Name.swf
2. The Radio Channel is the patent mentioned
3. Google for it, make sure it is the one under Kaleida labs
4. The Radio Channel is the patent number. Starts with a five. it is like 5475***
The Broken Server
1. Where was a codename mentioned in this heist?
2. The Radio has the audio file which has the mention of a codename
3. His codename was: Nighthawk
The Terminal
1. Simon Says

I'm lost - I don't know how to get past the smiley at the bottom of the page! Can anyone post a walkthrough?

EDIT: Well, I got to the Radio part, now I don't know what to do next. How can I find the script and server?

EDIT 2: Well, I finally finished it. Well done! This was a really entertaining heist and I hope we'll see more like these from you guys in the future. I couldn't help but chuckle at the end. And the radio transmission was a good touch.

Also the face spins around like crazy so you can't be sure which end is up - unless there's some kind of clue...

tongue I didn't think about that... Uh the face is right side up after spinning. So the top switch is 12/0, the right is 3, etc.

OK found the radio and got the codename.  But from here I am lost.  I think I have checked all the previous pages for other links, but maybe I missed something.  What do I do with the codename mentioned in the radio file?

TIA for help.

Thanks.  You don't know how many times I clicked on the link and wondered why it did not work.  Then after having the codename still did not put it together.  It finally clicked.  Very nice heist.  Looking forward to part two!

Nice Heist up to this point, but I'm stuck on the radio and how to make it accept the code.

Thanks.

Wow. MacHeist 4. I can't believe it's actually happening.
Unfortunately, it looks like I'm sitting this one out because of aggressive version requirements. It's been real.

I downloaded the document, but trying to open it results in a lot of gibberish. I'm on a PC so I'm scared that might be my problem. Any help with this would be appreciated, either here on via PM if it'd be too much of a spoiler for others.

Thanks in advance, and that's for creating this!

The file that you downloaded is a zip file with the extension cut off... Simple rename the file with a zip at the end and unarchive.

It has been awhile since I finished this one, but you have to flip the switch or press the button on the radio if I remember correctly.
