A new email arrived this morning:
As a result of the outstanding assessment results delivered in recent weeks I am pleased to announce an expanded role for recruits in the Volunteer Assessment Program at http://www.dharmawantsyou.com.
This new activity will draw on the impressive knowledge base of recruits and will offer the opportunity to challenge your colleagues in a friendly intellectual competition.
You have the potential to earn significant Dharma Points with this new activity, which will contribute to your overall assessment results.
Log in and consult your “Progress” page for details.
I look forward to another inspiring display of initiative from you all.
Hans Van Eeghen
Head of Recruiting
The Dharma Initiative
I had yet to complete test 3, so I went ahead and did both. Test 3, as most have you know, was essentially a game where you control a DHARMA logo and had to avoid getting hit by other moving objects, or touching the sides of the octagon you are playing within – max score of 100 based on the number of seconds you can survive. Test 4 was another multiple choice questionnaire.
There are also now video updates upon login where Hans essentially lets us know what is new – prior to Test 3, the video gave way to a potential cheat for that particular game – thanks to reader “Hammer” for originally pointing out the glitches in the video, and the following concise answer from Lostpedia.com:
With the mystery video also came some glitchy hacks, which spelled out B P M 40 60″. Stick it together and you get BPM 40-60, which apparently in music corresponds to the word “lento”. There do seem to be other possible cheats, like right-clicking to pause the game, but this must be the proper method for passing Test 3.
Test 3 is called a Dexterity and Attentiveness Evaluation. Basically, you’re controlling a Dharma logo and have to dodge little biddy asteroids for 100 seconds. The speed increases though, so its pretty tough to last for a full marks 100. However, typing in “lento” seems to make the asteroids speed drop dramatically, giving you time to move around safely. The cheat only lasts for a few seconds though, but you can repeat it. So you just need to find a safe corner, type lento and then repeat until you survive the game without a collision.
In the newest video posted, there is another glitchy hack in the first part of the video, but I cannot identify exactly what it is. Hans also lets us know that we can create our own multiple choice tests for other recruits – and this functionality is accessible from the “My Progress” section. I have not really dug into that yet, but let us know if you find anything worth discussing!
