I hope I've made this puzzle reasonable to solve..  :huh:

 
Here is a hint. You will need it after you've solved the first part.

Of course, Monaco will do as well. I hope that's of some consolation.

You probably have. I just don't know where to start.

I think my  triangular box problem is easier.

But it makes sense that a puzzle is clear to its creator. ^_^

I just saw this puzzle...it's pretty awesome...

All you really need to do is notice that the string ends with "=="...which, if you know anything about encodings, is a common ending for Base64 encoded strings.



So, just plugging the string into a Base64 decoder, you get the result that was flagged as the answer.

Really neat puzzle...simple if you get that first step...and props on the ASCII art!
