Life XVII

Life XVII - Textual Proof of Existance

Difficulty: 4
Interest: 6

Finally a complete riddle! We get a title, an image, some text and one more file to work with. Everything is relevant, with the title containing most of the hints and information.

This riddle is quite tricky, as it requires you to do two things that you have never done before. The first is that the answer ends with .php and not .html. The second is that you'll need to find a file that ends with .txt, which, apparently, is hinted to with the 'Textual' in the title. Once you know this, the riddle is quite easy. Otherwise, it is really hard and time consuming.

Once you have the text file, figure out the value of 'x', calculate the answer, convert it to the correct format, and you're done. Pretty easy, eh?

You will need the text, title and image to find 'x'. You will know when you calculate the right answer, as it is a pretty significant number.

Note: The answer is in capital letters, and ends in .php.

Next Level

*Spoilers*


Look at the title. It is not 'Life 17' but 'Life XVII'. The answer is in roman numerals.

To get 'x', use the second word in the title (proof), and the text hinting at alcohol, and apply it to the image. From wikipedia:'Alcoholic proof is a measure of how much ethanol is in an alcoholic beverage, and is approximately twice the percentage of alcohol by volume'.

I agree. If this wasn't another riddle, why the question mark?

I saw the image, no help there yet though (for those who haven't found it think about the sdrawkcaB/Mars level). There almost has to be something I'm missing though (which I expect to figure out before the time of a week ends).

Only thing I've related together:

Mexican tequilla and Thursday October 12 (tomorrow). In Mexico it's "Día de la Raza" which is their version of Columbus Day.

Also, in the image, "CIA" in Especial are very crisp, as opposed to the rest.

Yeah, this is an actual riddle, and since the page is .php now instead of .html, i'm thinking we have to do more than just change the URL, i'm thinking it's gotta be something like 'gore.php?something=something' otherwise, there would be no advantage to using .php

Unless of course the extension was changed to make you think of looking for a picture?

as per my previous comment (#14), i'm guessing it has something to do with the year on that bottle, 'Fundada EN' means 'Founded in' in Spanish, so something was founded in that year, probably the company that made the alcohol maybe?

i went with the year instead of the alcohol content, but now that i think of it, the alcohol content is probably more relevant.
