What every high lvl birdhouse should come standard


« on: April 26, 2007, 06:46:15 am »

So I don't know if anyone else has ever noticed but those things could easily manipulated. The pop up uses only six different letters (A,B,C,D,E,F) and then all numbers from 0 through 9. I have come to the conclusion that if you were macroing you could have a random generator programmed so that when a pop up comes up that it could run and find the right set of letters and numbers. But I'm not willing to test this as I don't want to waste the time. I would rather just play and not use anything to help me play. Just figured I would point this out and see if anyone else has noticed either.

I didn't say that anyone wouldn't notice that they kept messing up but I mean it is something that I thought might happen. Just never know though.

No thanks I don't need any of that. I hate math anyways. Numbers mixed with letters is the devils magic. Besides I learned everything that I needed to know in the fourth grade.

wait... I thought that with going through each possibility, the chances are reduced to being (# of choices per spot)^(# of spots - 1), or only 1048576 tries... still, it would take hours to do that, if not a whole day...
