Sorry, What do you do on the radio?

I'm stuck here too, but I think you need a specific number by pressing the up and down butttons.

The clue, is in the files.swf (The thing that needs the project name) there are two websites linked to in the notecards stage. Starts with myname... and ferrou...
Look for the one thing the letter mentions in the files.swf

After the cogs, the page you get to has a link that displays a whole load of rubbish, looks like it's in the wrong format.

Anyone know if the bit after the radio is still working, i think i've got the right idea with theapplgeek website but it's still not working.

Recheck the starting post. I made it easier, but it is pressing the bottom switch twice, left one twice then the smallest gear.

Can someone help, please? I'm stuck at the broken server. I've tried replacing the codename part of the URL with various things including nighthawk, but they don't work. I don't know what I'm missing; I've done the radio etc.

Cheers!

Speaking purely personally, I spent (wasted, as it turns out) several hours yesterday trying to solve this. I thought it was a very good heist, and worth spending the time on, and I also wanted to get the extra free app that was advertised as the reward. However, I was prevented from progressing, as it turns out, by a bug - which I have to say is pretty frustrating. Then, a day later, after I've been told that the bug will be fixed, the heist is just announced as being over instead.

I do accept that it would obviously have been a good idea for me to do the heist sooner, but the fact is that (for whatever reason) I only spotted it yesterday, and I did it right away. I visit MacHeist very regularly, but somehow had failed to spot this thread until now. If I'd seen it sooner, I'd have done it sooner.

Anyway, that's life, but it's pretty annoying. This was a particularly good user heist, I thought - very well done. Clearly a lot of time and effort has been put into creating it, and that really shows. I'm just feeling pretty peeved (a) to have had it unplugged on me when I was just about to complete it, and (b) to have missed the loot.

So my suggestion for your upcoming second mission is that you set a time limit at the start and let people know what it is. "Finish by such-and-such a date or miss out." That's fair enough, and clearly there does have to be a limit on these things. It just isn't very funny to do most of a mission and then be denied the ending and the reward.

Cheers!

Timi, the developer of the application and the host of the last step did a recent site design and decided that the heist was over smile
Sorry, my plan was to have the heist be over right before the next one and stop the first step so others could complete it.
I did not plan for it to happen this way, it just did sad
I am so sorry that you didn't get your loot.
But, look on the bright side as there will be a second mission with more loot!

Oh dear god. Hopefully not but maybe.
It was a lot of work!

Yes there will be another!
I am focusing more on organizing it this time around not so much the creating smile
Plus I have all of the off-season to do it.

I understand. Well, it's a pity that it ended this way, but I thank you for the effort you put into making such an interesting heist, and I look forward to your next one!
