District13.Co.In Reveals Hack #2 — “Real Capitol Concerns”

The rebels in District 13 have discovered a second way to hack into the Capitol’s servers (ICYMI check out Hack 01)
Here are step by step instructions to “Hack” the Capitol’s server.

  • Go to http://m.district13.co.in on your phone or tablet
  • Connect to the site with Facebook or Twitter
  • Open TheCapitol.pn from your desktop browser and enter the Session ID located in the top right corner and press sync
  • Touch and hold on the fingerprint to open the site on your mobile device
  • Now look at TheCapitol.PN it should now be changing to say “The Mockingjay Lives”.  Make sure to leave the site up.
  • Press Hack 02 on the District 13 site
  • Read the instructions, lock your screen in portrait mode, and then click initiate.
  • Play the game and watch TheCapitol.PN to see your progress.  You are trying to keep the green line in the black area.
  • Once you finish the following screen will appear revealing “Real” Capitol Concerns discovered by the Rebels

Capitol Concerns Hack 02
Now if you’re like me, that took FOREVER! LOL! If the world depended on me doing that hack, well let’s just say it wouldn’t fare so well. I think in the end it felt sorry for me, because after 20 minutes and having to restart it twice because it got stuck, it never went out of the red, it just kinda sat there. I think Beetee just decided to step in and help me or I’d still be sitting there turing my phone ;)

Now that’s not the only surprise the rebels have for you. This time head over to the desktop version of District13.co.in and you’ll see a message from the rebels

“We are the seekers of truth. We are believers in the Mockingjay. Our Districts burn, but we withstand the flames. And we will fight even after our hearts stop beating. The Capitol will feel our fury. And soon it will feel yours.”

Now move your mouse over the squares until you find two that turn green, and you can unlock hidden data from the rebels.

The first contains Cressida’s file…

The second contains a message from the rebels and a “live feed” revealing the truth about what is really happening in the Districts

I have to admit despite all the time it takes me, it’s a lot of fun hacking the Capitol and digging for rebel data. What do you think about the “hacks?” Let us know in the comments.

The Secret History of Katniss’s Hunting Jacket

It’s no secret that The Hunger Games films have some of the best costume designs out there, but some facts have been kept hidden…until now. As part of an upcoming exhibit displaying some of Hollywood’s most iconic costumes, Fast Company Design was able to speak to costume designers about the creation of some of their best pieces. One of those happened to include Katniss’s hunting jacket from the first movie.

Costume designer Judianna Makovsky: When we started designing Katniss’s hunting costume, we tried to follow the description in the book exactly. The book describes her jacket as her father’s old hunting jacket. We drew inspiration from American mining work clothes, and also looked at leather jackets from the ‘30s through the ‘50s. But the first jacket we made, from leather, really didn’t look good. Because it was meant to be her father’s, it was oversized, and way too big and bulky. It impeded her from shooting the arrow. So finally, after testing it out, I said, “I think we should make a jacket that actually fits her.” I knew superfans might be disappointed, but in a filmic, realistic sense, the oversized jacket just didn’t work.

Did the jacket stand out to you when you saw the film? Let us know in the comments!

WATCH: CapitolTV Warns of Mandatory Blackouts in the Capitol

CapitolTV has updated with a new video alterting Capitol Citizens to mandatory blackouts that are affecting the area as they test a new operating system designed to strengthen security systems.  District 3 is assuring citizens this is normal and should be remedied shortly. (But is it though?)

We are aware this video is not available for all to view, but hopefully this will change soon.  But we assure you, you are not missing any new footage.  It is simply a voice over with the Capitol seal.
