Faulty Clues for Hacking?

Post » Wed Mar 02, 2016 12:08 pm

The last couple of times I played Fallout 3, I got some wonky messages while trying to hack into computers. I have gotten a couple of "clues/results" with 0 (zero) correct, yet all of the words had at least 1 "E" in them. If the word I chose had an "E" and I got a "Zero correct", how can another word with an "E" be correct? Yet I did finally guess right, with a word containing an "E."

I am running some mods, though nothing major, and certainly not modifying any computer hacking. Have others run into this? Or is this just my lucky game? :lol:

Isn't it positioning as well.

If the password is Fell.

Beds would show 1/4

Seed would show 1/4

Sell would be 3/4

But Earn would show 0/4 because the 'E' is in the wrong place.

That's what I always thought it was. If it turns out I'm wrong, it'd be pretty funny cos I've gone through three games thinking that hehe
