Mass Effect 2
It seems fine now, most of the doors the symbols are very close to each other. I rarely let the timer get half way down. There is also a researchable upgrade that slows the count down I believe.
On the bypass you just need to hover the mouse over them and just work at them one at a time, you'll get through it pretty fast after you get used to it.
On the hack, the best suggestion I can give anyone is forget looking for the shape or line count of the bit of data your are looking for just do it like this:
Note the colors and what order they are in, example: Four Paragraph code fragment. first section white, then orange, then orange, then green. Ignore the shape of the fragment at first and just dodge the red boxes while looking for that color order, then if you see it, glance at the shape of the code fragment and match them again, then click. Again it gets easier the more often you do it.
As for the code fragment matching... I do it a bit like cloud gazing. A combination of eyeballing big chunks of purple or white, and projective stuff like one code fragment looks like a gun, one looks like a spaceship, etc. Works wonders.
i tried that without the trainer first and it wont let me click on the text that match, when i tried it with the trainer all it did was freeze the screen and i could not click on anything. so now i am stuck from progressing through the game, i am at this tower on horizion and cant hack the computer to contact someone forgot who. maby someone who has a save game to get around this glitch would help me please. thx
