Counterheist Is On Solution
Sights And Sounds is comprised of five maps in a sequence, each containing five tables. Players can walk up to these tables and press SPACE to interact. When you do this, the table will pop up with a message that players need to respond to. They can then press y to answer "yes" and n to answer "no". You cannot interact with the same object twice.
Each table in a scene represents a bit, with "yes" being 1 and "no" being 0. (It isn't obvious which table corresponds to which bit, that'll require experimentation) Therefore, each map represents a five bit sequence, this five bit sequence representing an integer from 0 through 31 inclusive. These ultimately map to the letters A-Z, with A being 1 and Z being 26.
It's not immediately obvious which table corresponds to which bit; they'll have to figure out which is which by trial and error/seeing what data they get out from certain combinations. See the Data section for the correct combination.
Once the five tables in a scene are completed, players are either:
Moved to the next scene in the sequence (when the integer represented by their five choices falls in the 1-26 range). If a player is moved to the next scene, they also receive the letter they extracted in the previous scene as part of the flavor text.
Given a failure message and sent back to the beginning of the first scene (when the integer represented by their five choices is 0, or in the 27-31 range)
If the player gets through all five scenes in the sequence, they are presented with a screen like this (in this case, they didn't get the right code):
The overall goal is to get the "code" mentioned in the picture above to say HEIST. To hint at this, there is the word HEIST in all capital letters in both the intro text for all the scenes and the failure text if you enter the wrong binary string in a scene.
If the player properly spells HEIST, they receive the answer to put into Spiderdog, ALLFINISHED.
The values in each cell are the conversation prompts in each scene representing each bit.
The correct ones to answer "yes" on to get the answer HEIST are highlighted.

Screenshots of all five scene starts are given below - in case GC needs to know what scene the team is in at-a-glance. Note that the flavor text (letter pops into your head) will differ based on inputs to the previous scene.
