Where do I input the codes I find in first person on top of the pillars?

I found a code written on the dock next to the lighthouse while in first person. I copies it exactly in input it and it doesn't do anything. Where do I need to use it?

I just found this myself. Thought it would be used on that vibrating pillar, but it didn't work. I'll let you know if I figure it out.

You use it right there. IIRC, you have to flip the code for this one. The perspective from the pillar is incorrect. Try standing on the opposite side of it.

Oh, that's f***ing stupid and poorly designed. Though I shouldn't be surprised considering the quality of the puzzles in this game.

I don't think you're supposed to be standing on the pillar. The pillar just indicates that there's a code in the room. You can use the code anywhere in the room, though obviously, there are two possible orientations for a string, so try both.

Yeah, this one was very poorly designed, but I don't really think the other puzzles warrant that same description (at least the pre-NG++ ones).

Not sure if this is relevant to the TC, but just as a heads up to anyone else: remember that you can't input codes WHILE you're in first person.

wait, you can go into first person view?

You'll know when you can do it
What's the forth one?
