Guided Mode on Retired Machines offers a more structured approach to practicing, allowing players to receive step-by-step hints directing them toward achieving user and root flags. This mode includes a series of questions that must be answered in a linear fashion, providing clear direction and checkpoints along the way.
By utilizing Guided Mode, players can complete their practice more efficiently, gaining a better sense of their progress and the intended goal for each Box.
Adventure Mode vs Guided Mode
Retired Machines are a great place to practice and learn, and to ensure everyone is learning at their own pace we introduced two modes for Retired Boxes.
Adventure Mode :
This is the classic adventurous interaction with a box, you are tasked to submit a user and root flags in order to complete the Machine.
Guided Mode :
Switching modes will introduce a series of Tasks that eventually lead to obtaining user and root flags by progressing through a carefully curated set of questions, each one designed to focus on specific concepts or techniques. By completing these tasks, you will gradually acquire knowledge and skills, paving the way for more advanced Tasks. Guided Mode ensures a smooth learning curve, allowing you to build a strong foundation before moving on to more complex scenarios. This mode is particularly beneficial for beginners or those seeking a comprehensive and structured learning experience.

Playing Both Modes
You can switch between Adventure and Guided Mode. Submitting a flag in either mode completes that flag for you on this box. Once a flag has been accepted (from either mode), if there is a Guided Mode question after that flag, it will be unlocked.
