Just as ka1z3r says. Well, if you aren't able to get it with paint, you can always go for some high tech editing software. :P but yeah, those are the only things you need if you wanna be simplistic.

This was an awesome challenge. Thanks for putting it together. That was the most challenging few hours so far. After the Congrats screen you mention how the answer could've been encrypted further using some proprietary encryption software, how would one even begin to break that, idk. Insane.

Hmm tried two different hex editors on this, found the relevant screen "area" to examine in detail, cropped out the necessary pixels etc but i appear to be stuck.

Tried pixel counting as i thought it might be block numbers but that didnt work and cant find anything with the hex editors.
Tried viewing in ascii, hex etc but still not seeing anything of sense.
Headache.

What could MS Paint be used for in this challenge?

Could you suggest some Linux hex editor convenient to look for byte patterns in this challenge?
I have used HexEdit, it seems to be a pain to look for the right patterns with HexEdit.

I'll give you a hint. Enlarge the image and look carefully. There's a step to it before viewing in a hex editor.

Hopefully, I'm not wrong, there're some red things around the text, how can I locate the corresponding parts in hex editors?

While the red part around the text is not what you're looking for, simply crop out the relevant parts and save them. Different extensions might yield different results.
