G-mask thread / gmask

This is ancient imageboard culture that all newfags need to know. Since 2012 it has been totally banned of 4chan and it is dying out. We need to revive it + it's super fun anyhow.

ITT: we have some fun and do some puzzles!

How to play:

1. Get GMASK from Archive.org (or google "Gmsk170E.exe"): web.archive.org/web/20170813072520/http://furumizo.net/tsu/gmaskd_e.htm or from here: files.catbox.moe/k614b9.rar

2. Find an image you want to share with us, this is an imageboard after all!

3. Make it into a puzzle like pic related

4. Post it for fun and despair!

————————————–

GMASK for Dummies:

1. Select the area to be scrambled/unscrambled by click and drag. In most cases you'll need to select the entire image at once.

2. Use the View->Whole Image option to fit big images into the program window.

3. Because GMASK selects 8x8 pixels at a time it's wise to resize your pics in multiples of 8 to avoid leaving unmasked rows and columns.

4. Don't change the default program settings or nobody will be able to unscramble your pic.

5. Don't use more than 4 actions or nobody will have the patience to unscramble your pic.

GMASK Defaults:

- 8x8 size for all, negative FL mask,

- Q0 first 3 checked only,

- RGB all checked and using R->G->B->R.

See, this is the whole reason GMasks became a thing of the PAST:
Anons kept making Gmask threads with the same images and same masks as the previous thread. And the one before that. And the one before that.

Pasta.

It is nothing but spam.

And it kills what is otherwise enjoyable.

That's the appeal of gmask. It's like Russian roulette. You don't know what picture you'll end up solving.

Xavier Ortiz

Did you use flips? (((da​tamin​ing))) Cause if you did you're a slimy bastard tbh.

Chase Price

For a moment I thought the censored genitals were masks.
On the flip side, do you think artists could get away with using a mask to censor their art? (((da​tamin​ing)))

Hunter Cox

That would be pretty underhanded. Normalfags don't deserve to go through that.

Mason Ortiz

I think de-censoring is illegal in Japan.
iirc police busted some people using software to decensor JAV videos.

This is as far as I got. You've overdone it. Can't see any patterns. The pros could do it but they won't care unless it's something worth it like hardcore porn or fantasy artwork.

If you want feedback, here it is: don't overdo. If you yourself couldn't solve it if you forgot the exact steps, you overdid it.

Y'all need to stop using XOR if you want to preserve the image quality.
Everytime I solve a puzzle with it you end up with artifacts like and , although I haven't yet solved the last one.
Also, unless you're an oldfag pretty sure appeared in another thread at least a year ago.

Posted that in the /gmask/ board a long time ago.

Landon Allen
Landon Allen

That's better. You learned lesson 1: how to use flips sensibly.
Now it's time for lesson 2: do not ever save as JPG if you used XOR at any step.
Also fyi there exists /gmask/index.html but it's been dead for years.

Adrian Bennett

there exists /gmask/index.html but it's been dead for years.

That doesn't stop anons from posting here.

Adrian Price

Gmask will likely always be a Holla Forums thing. Stop creating boards for Holla Forums specific things! It just decentralizes the users who enjoy that content.

Jose Carter
Jose Carter

I guess you're proven right by how inactive the gmask board is.

Brody Ward
Brody Ward

No, people stopped participating in Gmask things for the same reason they have largely abandoned chans in general: too many people dedicated to shitting it up so that it becomes too difficult to have a good time by using the board/site as intended.
In the case of Gmasks, anons were posting the same shit over and over again, and other anons were posting all the fucked up XOR jpgs, and still other anons were posting trap/gore/anime bullshit. And of course the inevitable CP. 4chan eventually just did away with Gmask images entirely, but by that point nobody really cared anymore because it was played out anyway.
The only reason it caught on here as briefly as it did is because noobs have never seen it before. But you can see already that they are regressing into using it to shitpost and ruin it for everyone else. Granted, this is Holla Forums, and that is to be expected here, but that is exactly why you are wrong to say that Gmask will always be a Holla Forums thing. It won't.>>7793755

7793760 here. I STARTED this thread, you fuzznutted teenfag. So don't tell me I didn't fucking contribute. And if you being an immature ignorant young puppy who didn't lurk long enough makes me an elitist oldfag, then I am an elitist oldfag and proud of it.
Now fuck off back to the nursery, your milk is ready.

Called it. Epic old fag elitist didn't post an image!
He even went as far to lie and say he made this thread. Disgusting, maybe you were talking about the last one? (((da​tamin​ing))) hollaforums.com/thread/7762874/miscellaneous
Because I am the OP of this thread, just burdened with a dynamic IP. Begone thot.

Jose Murphy

Here's one more I definitely overdid.

Christopher Wood
Christopher Wood

Yeah same. I can't do the second because the selection seems to be fucked. The 5th too but if you do free select or shift + drag you can do it.

1st one might be a CP mask. I can't read Japanese.

When you select the section at the beginning, just click the selection adjustment button down one click. Then proceed as normal.
