The blog post Call Log [3-26 19:40] from LL-TERMINAL43 was posted by FX-CLIENT0001-HOME on March 26, 2014 at 07:45 PM Toontown Time.

This is the part with the box of 5 and the trolley-bot recall.

So it turns out that Doctor Surlee left the trolley bots on default mode. He calls Sir Max on the telephone to ask him to bring them back. Sir Max says the trolley bots are already deployed. He activated them at his house so he wouldn't have to load them all into the truck. And he also got one of those new-fangled fax machines. Doctor Surlee sends the blueprint through the fax, then tells Sir Max the button combination to temporarily shut down the trolley bots.

(The combination is very close to the order the buttons on the control panel break in the original Toontown Online download video.)

Doctor Surlee asks why Sir Max is recording calls. Sir Max says he isn't but he let a Tellemarketer trolley bot install the fax machine. Surlee says something like this always happens on the 26th and tells Sir Max to unplug everything and wait for him to come.

Trolley bots have been recalled. At this time in Toontown Rewritten, you could get debug whispers every time you completed a trolley game with a trolley bot in it. These debug whispers reveal the key to decrypt the blueprint.

Is this section half-empty or half full?


Box of 5? You make a 5x5 grid and plug in all the letters except J. (I and J share a square.) You assign a number to each column and row. Each letter can then be turned into 2-digit numbers. A=11. B=12. C=13. D=14. E=15. F=21. I=24. J=24. W=52. Z=55.

In fact, here's a website for decrypting this Polybius Square.

And there's this YouTube video of the decryption. But the blueprint it shows IS NOT a blueprint of a fax machine.

This Decryption/Explanation of the trolley bot phrases Reposted on MMO Central Forums by Peppy Sourbubble is crucial to solving this puzzle. Most of the work was done by him, Lord Fatality, and they had a little help from Joey/Sir Max.

"Method used is the same as last time" is the first " All Records Expunged, Further Investigation Will Be Necessary" is the second.

Joey said "Order them."

(0043,0052,0045,0041,0054,0049,4E,0047,) for this first one; (0045,0051,0055,0049,4D,0045,004E,0054) for the second phrase.

After this, they got the letters by HEXIDECIMAL, and they spelled out, "Creating Equiment".

Joey PURPOSLEY left out the P for Equipment.

Notes and Thoughts

  • The phrases "Method used is the same as last time" and "All Records Expunged, Further Investigation Will Be Necessary" don't just show us how to break a Silly Cipher though. It also shows us the true nature of the Cogs. To paraphrase what Sir Max has said[1][2][3] before, It doesn't matter what toony thing the Toons do. The Cogs' method will be the same.

  2. "What it was exactly doesn't matter: The main point is that Field Offices were created to counter what the toons were doing. Since the toons have already done it, the cogs have already countered it. However, as The Two said, the Doctor knows exactly what he has gotten us into."

  3. "The Cog Invasion didn't speed up - that always happened on Election day. (In TTR canon.) Why do you think that Gyro wasn't in his lab when Scrooge arrived?

    The toons somehow have Toon Parties, Golf, and soforth 6 years ahead of time. They had a head start - but the problem is that the Cogs created things based off of the toons. Take Goons, for example. You know where they came from. The Cogs are always learning and adapting to the market. The Toons have Parties? We'll launch Field Offices. They made a golf course? That's the perfect spot for our country club.

    However that is a variable, that variable was only sped up to improve the experiment. One of the variables changed."
