On the Subject of Simon Stashes
I lived long enough to see myself become the villain.
When this needy module activates, the four pentagonal buttons will fade to various colors, and then start flashing a sequence of two colors, with sequences being separated by the center button flashing.
The first color that flashes corresponds to a character in the serial number:
- Red: 1st character
- Green: 2nd character
- Blue: 3rd character
- Cyan: 4th character
- Magenta: 5th character
- Yellow: 6th character
Take this character and treat it like a base-36 number, converted to base-10. The second color that flashes corresponds to something to multiply this number with.
- Red: # of batteries
- Green: # of battery holders
- Blue: # of indicators
- Cyan: # of ports
- Magenta: # of port plates
- Yellow: Sum of serial # digits
Take the result modulo 16, and convert it to binary. Press the center button to start submitting. Starting with the top-right button corresponding to the most significant bit and going clockwise, if that bit is a 1, select that button, otherwise, don’t press it. Press the center button again to submit.
