I don't know if this would be considered an easter egg, but I just noticed this for the first time in what must be hundreds of times playing MNOG. During the Infected Lewa vs. Onua cutscene, right when Lewa gets control over himself once again, he uses his Komau to mind control the rama. What I noticed is that as he did it, the background was blue, and had a rapid transition between the matoran symbols for the numbers 1 and 0. I'm wondering if this means either templar and lego meant that the komau almost "hacks" the target's mind, as this is similar to binary. I just found this interesting :P. Thoughts?

Easter eggs are hidden items or messages, often with some real world significance. I don't see how a brief and obvious visual effect could count as one.

 

I think the wall of numbers was just the best representation of mind control the makers could think of. Any mental process would be difficult to portray in simple Flash animation.

I think it just "portrays" the Nui-Kopen's mind, like all confused and stuff as the Komau's power is taking effect.

Well there were more easter eggs in MNOLG, and most were hidden in plain sight, but all were written in Matoran, thats what makes them hidden, well I agree essentially the Nui-Kopen are robots so their mind should on a deep leven be binary.

I don't think this means anyting (I don't think this is an intentional easter egg, by lego), but it's still interesting.

Not exactly an easter egg, but seeing that the Matoran language was essentially a programming language (I think.....), it's possible.

That's quite interesting, but I think this is nothing special in these "1" and "0" numbers.

I noticed that the first time I saw it. It's supposed to tell you that mind control is going on.

What would make it an Easter egg is if those 1's and 0's actually said something in binary. Which, knowing Templar, they probably do.

That would be cool. I can read binary numbers, but know nothing about binary letters. (thats funny, a code within a code!)

of course, there were many different frames, but I got one, you can look at the rest of the 0's and 1's in the cutscene (which can be found on Youtube) Heres the pic I got: http://www.brickshel...onicle/mnog.png

Upon translating the first 3 lines, there's not much hope: �e$2ÊHower someone should continue to investigate this.

well, this is only one frame of the scene in which this happens, it might be hard to decode, but maybe the flashings between the frames spells out something? (lets says theres 10 frames, maybe the 0's and 1's in one relative spot say something.

I don't the binary code has a meaning. It could, but I don't think that it was originally intended for a message. Just to show the mind-controlling going on.

Yea, Half the letters are covered by Lewa's face. I doubt there's a message in there, but it would have been a good idea!

It's probably not an easter egg, but I do enjoy the 'hacking' idea. :) That's a cool interpretation.
