On the Subject of Deceptive Rainbow Arrows
What do you mean, “Point at Inverted Stores’ Calculations!?” It points to the void and two useless bits!
This module has eight arrow buttons in a randomized rainbow color arrangement, and a display screen in the center showing a flashing number in base-8 from 00 to 77. The eight possible colors the module can show are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple/violet, white, and black. When not submitting, there are 6 sets of flashing arrows followed by the text flashing a different color, denoting the end of the arrow flashing sequence.
If there is not a black arrow present, you may be looking at Rainbow Arrows.
To solve the module, the defuser will need to query a series of 2 colors and read out the response shown from the module. The response shown will be in base-8 or octal as "R:##" on the module. Go through the procedure for each response to get the next sequence of colors to query. Once the defuser has queried for the third response, determine the value to submit based on the response of that query.
To query on the module, press the two arrow colors and then the display to query for the response. To submit on the module, press the display while no arrows are pressed, press the two arrow colors in order, and then the display again to submit. If the defuser wants to exit out of submission, press the display while no arrows have been inputted. Do not query or submit with 1 color pressed, or interact while the module is processing the query. This will cause a strike and display an error message on the module for a few seconds before reverting back to its initial state.
