A simple guide to help you guess correctly every time...

The Original Lunar Temple Guide



Welcome guest to the Original Lunar Temple Guide!


The above picture is a link to the Lunar Calendar!



Introduction

Click Ctrl + D to bookmark this page!

Hello guest, I will be your guide to the Lunar Temple and give you as much help as I possibly can. Hopefully, by reading through this guide you will be able to make the correct guess at the Lunar Temple every single time. I'm really working hard to get this petpage up in a hurry and I'll work more on the layout later but this is good enough for now. Please read on, and be careful as I'm still editing!

If you have any questions at all on the guide, feel free to neomail me as I am online often and you usually will get a very quick response.

All suggestions are greatly appreciated. ;)



7th December 2010: It's been over three years since I created this guide, and I would just like to thank everyone for all the feedback and support I've received during that time. I will be updating the guide in the next few days, making it easier to follow and getting rid of any images that are broken. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to send me a neomail.

Also, on another note, if you would like your petpage guide to be affiliated on mine, please neomail me with your button or link.

21st February 2007: I received an informative neomail today from a member of TNT. It was concerning the error that some people were neomailing me in about (348.75 - 360 not being number 9 when it should be). That issue is now fixed. Our formula has been updated accordingly.

16th February 2007
Today is the Shenkuu Lunar Festival. The Neopian News is updated with a strange lunar temple, that inside has a wise Gnrobu. He asks you to translate a Lunar Calendar, and in return will give you a prize for your efforts. The prize is random and it is suspected that this is now a daily event, such as collecting Bank interest and telling King Skarl a joke...

And so this guide is first created.

If you are facinated by the moon you might enjoy a visit to the Lunar Temple.





Disclaimer

I would just like to point out that all the information has been gathered by myself (ethan_redshaw), however, the majority of the guide couldn't have been accomplished without help from other users. Special mention to akashic, who originally worked out the calculations.

Please do not steal my coding, my page layout, copy/edit my images to make them your own or try to make out that you created this page in any way. Thank you.


Thank you so much for visiting my page!

The Easy Solution

Mathematical

Firstly, go to the Lunar Calendar page where you submit your guess here.

View the source code on the Lunar Calendar page (source code is just the html code). To do this you must click View on your browser's toolbar and then on the pulldown menu choose Source if you are using internet Explorer or Page source if you are using Firefox.

Then, in the source code window, search for the word Kreludor by pressing Ctrl + F (or Edit then Find) and typing Kreludor into the box. There is a short number after that which might look something like this:

pia=73&angleKreludor=89&viewID=

The only part you need to worry about is 89, or the part in red. Put that number into a calculator. If you would like to use a really handy Neopets calculator, just use this link. Thanks raichu288 for information about the Neopets calculator. ;)

If your number is under 180, you should add 202.5, but if it is above 180, you need to minus 157.5. After getting the result from that, divide your answer by 22.5 and you should get a number.

Thanks akashic for this formula!

Each number corresponds with the table below, like so:



If you get a number such as 15.2, the number is 15. And if you get a number like 6.5, the number is 7. Please round up all your answer. If it is .49 and below, round down, if it is .50 and above, round up to the next number.

Also, if you get a number 16.5 or above that, it is just 1. ;)
Example 1

My number = 89

89 is smaller than 180...

89 + 202.5 = 291.5

291.5 / 22.5 = 12.95

12.95 rounded = 13

13 = Last Half of Moon.
Example 2

My number = 207

207 is larger than 180...

207 - 157.5 = 49.5

49.5 / 22.5 = 2.2

2.2 rounded = 2

2 = Waning Crescent Moon.


Non-mathematical

These are the the instructions from part one of the easy solution. All you need to do is follow this like before, but this time you do not need to use maths. Here you go:

Firstly, go to the Lunar Calendar page where you submit your guess here.

View the source code on the Lunar Calendar page (source code is just the html code). To do this you must click View on your browser's toolbar and then on the pulldown menu choose Source if you are using internet Explorer or Page source if you are using Firefox.

Then, in the source code window, search for the word Kreludor by pressing Ctrl + F (or Edit then Find) and typing Kreludor into the box. There is a short number after that which might look something like this:

pia=73&angleKreludor=89&viewID=

The only part you need to worry about is 89, or the part in red.


Here a a table for those who don't like maths. Just match up your source code number using the steps above and then choose the moon number that corresponds with your source code number:

0 - 11.24 = 9
11.25 - 33.74 = 10
33.75 - 56.24 = 11
56.25 - 78.74 = 12
78.75 - 101.24 = 13
101.25 - 123.74 = 14
123.75 - 146.24 = 15
146.25 - 168.74 = 16
168.75 - 191.24 = 1
191.25 - 213.74 = 2
213.75 - 236.24 = 3
236.25 - 258.74 = 4
258.75 - 281.24 = 5
281.25 - 303.74 = 6
303.75 - 326.24 = 7
326.25 - 348.74 = 8
348.75 - 360 = 9



Error Notice: The glitch is fixed! 348.75 - 360 should be number 9, instead of number 8 like it has been for the last couple of days. Thank you! ;)

The Original Solution

Step 1



First of all, take a screenshot of the page with the Lunar Calendar in the screen and open up the image in an image editing program (MS paint or Photoshop). Then place a small dot right in the centre of Neopia and the Sun. Draw a Line from each dot - this is the line of light. If you have completed that and it looks like the image above, continue on...

Step 2



Next, seperate the outer-circle ring with 8 lines, which eventually form 16 spikes. The first line should be from where the original line is (the line that was from Neopia to the Sun) and should be seperated equally like so. The ends of the spikes point to different phrases and you should note that the position of the spikes differ from each position of the Sun and Neopia...

Step 3



Next, you have to number each of the 16 spikes. First, you start off with the "New Moon" which is number one on my diagram. If you are unsure which spike to make number two, press the little moon and it should spin a certain way. The way it spins should be the way that your numbers rise. Example: If the moon spins to the left, number two should be the first spike to the left of number one and so on. If you understand this number each spike and continue on...

Step 4



Which spike is nearest to your moon? That spike should have a number next to it if you have done all the steps up to here. Write down that number and move on to the next and final step. On my diagram the moon is on number 16 (choose the spike which is the closest - it is not always pinpoint accuracy). Please move on...

Step 5

The number that the moon is next to corresponds with a phase, like so. Please match the number you got and you should get it correct! Horrah! ;) Here is the list:



Congratulations!
