new number instead of a word "34.0419", no counter change.

edit: counter change 3 mintues later: 0102

It took a little while but we got a new word and the usual counter change. Another week closer I suppose.

Dang, this new number is a tough one to crack. Closest I'm getting is that the sixth root of 34.0419 is 1.800? Lol, gonna keep working on this...

Edit: Oh, it could refer to a latitude. Nevada test site is 37.07 N though...

If been looking at GPS coordinates as well, is 37.07 N mentioned in the game?

It's happening people
Not yet, but it's definitely good news. let's find out what 34.0419 means first. I checked the link you posted, it's a large German chemical company.

edit: Just so there's no confusion, the sigma in the name is pure cooincidence. I don't think 34.0419 has anything to do with them.

You know, i don't think so, but i haven't played the games in a while. Wonder if someone else can chime in?

Edit: oh yeah, sigmaaldrich, I order crucibles for my experiments from them all the time lol. Yeah, the 'sigma' seems pretty telling...

Yeah, they're a huge supplier in the bioscience world. It won't have any relevance here, but it does result in the occasional amusing coincidence...

Gene ID: 340419

RSPO2 R-spondin 2 [ Homo sapiens (human) ]

source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/gene/340419

R-spondin 2 also known as roof plate-specific spondin-2 is a protein that in humans that is encoded by the RSPO2 gene.[1]

R-spondin 2 synergizes with Wnt to activate beta-catenin.[2][3] RSPO2 has been proposed to regulate craniofacial patterning and morphogenesis within pharyngeal arch 1 through ectoderm-mesenchyme signaling via the endothelin-Dlx5/6 pathway.[4]

What the...?! Wasnt expecting that. So does that mean Tubocurarine is actually a real thing?

Unlikely to be relevant, in my opinion. There are thousands of genes somehow implicated in morphogenesis (meaning, broadly, in developmental growth). This one has no real ties to the series that I can see.

Yes, and neostigmine really can be used as an antidote for curare poisoning. d-tubocurarine really will kill you that quickly, too (when injected). Uchikoshi did his homework.

thanks for clearing that up, I always appreciate someone with expert knowledge shooting down too far-fetched theories.

Maybe its in 999 somewhere?
Edit: I found out on C-R (and reddit)
34.0419 is a line of latitiude that runs through.... Nevada

Promising... very promising.
(999 spoilers)
is Building Q anywhere near that, do we know? Alwo someone shouls check that room where the corpse of the man with the zero bracelet is found, IIRC there were some latitude and longitude puzzles in there

No it doesn't? I just checked multiple maps and 35 latitude just barely scrapes the bottom of the state. There's no way 34 is in Nevada.

No idea where this idea came from, but Dandy Crocodile is right, 34.0419 is not a line that runs through Nevada.

Someone also worked out what the latest number was as a fraction:

http://forums.court-records.net/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=20675&start=2240

4436/13031

Now, idea - adding all those numbers up to get a digital root gives you 8 on each side. If you turn 8 on its side - you get something that looks like the infinity symbol. And if the numbers on each side match (as per the digital root theory) you get a total of 1

Sorry guys for going in too fast with the Nevada thing.

443600/13031 = 34.0419001

1/216 = 0.00462962962

I also saw the idea floating around somewhere that the numbers are the key to solving the words, but I wouldn't know where to start :/

Sorry guys for going in too fast with the Nevada thing.
No worries, that's what this thread is for; someone comes up with/finds a theory, other people try to prove or disprove it. That's the only way I can see us maybe solving any of this :)

Yeah, i had previously checked the coordinates of the real Nevada test site (see previous posts in this thread!) But they didnt quite match. I think that's a dead end.

Spoilers for ze3 Alice ending:
Alice says she finds the coordinates for the myrmidon headquarters...i can't remember if they mention what they are in the game? I don't think they do

Love the theory that the numbers are the key to solving the words! This might imply that we can't solve anything satisfactorily until all the words and numbers have been revealed.

The answer to the first fraction is rounded up.

443600/13031=34.041900084
Nice catch
*shakes fist at calculator*
. If this is about writing the numbers the same way, it's probably safe to assume that we can reduce them to 4 digits after the decimal point (like the number they gave us yesterday):

443600/13031 = 34.0419

1/216 = 00.0046


Spoilers for ze3 Alice ending:
Alice says she finds the coordinates for the myrmidon headquarters...i can't remember if they mention what they are in the game? I don't think they do
I can't remember either, but according to http://www.thonky.com/zero-escape/timeline

December 22, 2028 - Alice and Clover are in
Los Angeles,
planning to attack the Myrmidon headquarters on the 25th, but Akane kidnaps them for the next Nonary Game. Akane takes them to her organization's headquarters and places them in cold sleep.

edit: possible, very far-fetched connection to ZE (34.0419 runs through LA, but so do other lines of latitude)

I've been holding off on checking up on this because I knew I would get impatient but now I'm catching up and ugh I need an announcement asap.

Wait a second....
Alice and Clover were in LA in 2028 right? So thats where they were kidnapped?

ETA: Someone already posted this sorry.

Nice, this sounds promising. Has anyone in here been to the LA Convention Center before? Is there a room 216 on the 1st floor or something like that? Maybe a house number 216?

edit1: it really fits, look at that! Great find DrgnAK :)

Now that seems pretty likely to me, but it doesn't point the finger at it being a ZE3 game yet though.

I just want confirmation man!

It does when viewed in conjunction with everything else. There's just too much evidence pointing to ZE3 for it not to be it, unless Aksys is pulling some elaborate troll, which would be extremely unfortunate. (I don't feel that's the case.)

The location of the room it will be revealed in doesnt really reveal/point to anything about the actual teaser itself though, it sounds unbelievably precise.

Oh you guys! It's happening! I bet the next word will be the room number in which Aksys will hold their press conference. Nah, I'm kidding, there's no way they would know this early :)

But it could just be Uchikoshi appreciating his fans...

Who am I fucking kidding? I am way past the point of optimistic skepticism


HYPE


Edit: Great find about that LACC thing, that is one thing I am sure we have deciphered about the teaser.

If it is ZE3 do you think Uchikoshi has started work on the game? Even if he has it would be sometime before a release.
