Has anyone completed the mission yet-and could post a walkthrough?

No one has completed the missions (without cheating). I am sure that someone will post a walkthrough after it has been completed though.

Yes, a walkthrough would be nice, whoever would post it.

A rough try at a walkthrough.  This does have spoilers but tries to encourage some thinking and discovery.  It's intended to be read a "post" at a time.  I hope some people new to the mission will find this a perhaps more organized/entertaining supplement to the "*** SPOILER ALERT *** Mission 1 Started" thread.

Updated with a link to the wiki page, my apologies.

THE PROPER PLACE TO POST WALKTHROUGHS IS THE WIKI!

If I had to put up with people constantly posting dupe threads asking about a) the code, b) the briefing system, or c) the loot page, I'd be pretty annoyed too.

Oh, wait...

Ok here's the walkthrough:

The message quotes "Upon the Looking Glass", if you google that, the second result points a torrent at thepiratebay.
If you download the torrent there are 2 files, a "*** BURNME ***.dmg" and a "*** README ***.bf" file.
The "*** README ***.bf" file is (of course) a bf file that can be read by a bf interpreter (sorry for the redundancy). There's an online bf interpreter, input that file and you'll get the string "SECURELOL", that's the password for your DMG file "*** BURNME ***.dmg".
If you mount the DMG file, you'll see 2 folders, a VIDEO_TS and a AUDIO_TS folder, those are the characteristics of a common DVD. You can open a VIDEO_TS DVD folder in VLC (http://www.videolan.org/vlc/), if you open it you'll get a video that says "mac.mirroredperspectives.com".
Go to http://mac.mirroredperspectives.com, you'll see an iMac that gets mirrored infinite times, if you access the site from Internet Explorer, there are Internet Explorer browsers in the image, if you open it from Safari/Firefox for Mac, you'll see Safari browsers in the image, so, by common sense, the oposite of mac is windows isn't it? so access http://win.mirroredperspectives.com from a Windows PC, you'll get the same effect image but with a CRT monitor instead of the iMac, also there's a little minesweeper icon, click it to download a ZIP file.
The ZIP file contains a dashboard widget (Mac only), open it and solve the minesweeper, you'll get this message: http://clementine.quickshareit.com/shar … 246af7.jpg (not an official link, just a mirror of the message).
Scorpio, Libra and Pisces are mentioned in the message, so in the DVD if you match the sign with its planet (scorpio with mars, libra with jupiter (zeus), and pisces with neptune (seas)) gives three words: seventh enchanted reflection, ergo, http://seventhenchantedreflection.com
Go to the page, there are 6 dices, by trial and error select the correct combination, being 6135, that's NOT the code, if you look at the dice in a mirror, what will you get? 1462, the pass for http://backdoor.macheist.com.

Enjoy it!

No, I have no reason to be nice to someone who knew that heist had just started and was already begging for a walkthrough.  Laziness at its finest.

You'll have to excuse Warbrain... he's always a bit irritable.

I know.  But you have to admit, it is a bit ridic that someone would ask for a walkthrough when the heist had just started.

I think you need to give it a solid effort before you ask for help, and by solid effort I mean:

1. Try to solve it yourself.
2. Go back and try again.
3. Repeat step 2.
4. Check the backroom posts. If you don't find anything helpful,
5. WAIT.

There's no excuse for the combination of laziness and impatience.

I do not want to start a thread so I'll post this here:
I was tricked by the "http://backdoor.macheist.com/code.php?code=  "  nice job on that.  anyone tricked by this too?
I had programmed a php script to check all 9999 codes in "http://backdoor.macheist.com/code.php?code=  ",  but that did not work out..

I'm calm...but I seem to be the only one that is trying to make the new users understand that walkthrough will be posted when the heist is finished.

I know, but you don't have to freak out at them like you did to me when I was new, Give them a break. Obviously they didn't know this time, but if they do it again, by all means rant.

The problem is that they HAVE been doing it again. Over, and over, and over. How many times do people have to ask how to use the new briefing system?

And for fsck's sake, it's not like drag-and-dropping one item to another is rocket science...
