One of the passwords in Assassin's Creed 2 deals with Thomas Edison and J.P. Morgan trying to discredit Nikola Tesla in order to prevent alternating current from freeing the people, or something like that. I'm trying to unlock his secret code.
The code is 139 and according to the hint button, the symbols follow a base 3 pattern - "One dot, two dots, one line, one line and one dot, and so on", and the missing symbol has to fit that pattern.
When I align "One dot" with the number 1, the solution to 139 seems to be:
One dot One Line Three Lines
but when I enter that solution, I get a "Wrong code" indication. When I align one dot with zero, the solution to 139 comes up as:
Two dots One line and one dot Three lines and one dot
And that code doesn't work either.
Usually there's a clue in the photos provided to explain how to align the cipher wheel, but I can't seem to find that either. There's a symbol in the "Dearborn Independent" that contains two lines and two dots...does that have anything to do with it?
What is the solution to the Edison / Ford 139 cipher, and what clue am I supposed to use to figure the solution out?
