I've tried the english version passcode and the german translations of that doesn't fit in the space (especially the last word). Where you able to get this?

titania giving passcode

Yes, though only through hardcoding the wheels to be what was expected, since I couldn't locate a German walkthrough. Only reviewing the code now, I realize it had an "off by one" error due the columns read in for each code wheel being 1 to 8, not 0 to 7. I've committed in a fix for it. The password should now be "niemand magklugs cheisser". Google Translate identifies the first word as 'nobody', but not the other two.. maybe the words normally have accent characters, and Google doesn't recognise them without them. Given the English phrase, though, it's probably equivalent to nobody likes a smartass.

If you listen to the attached mp3 where titania is saying the passcode It sounds like she is saying:
"Keiner mag klugscheisser" -> "no one may be more clever"

but the german translation for
"nobody likes a smartass" -> "niemand mag einen Klugscheißer"

Interestingly if you shorten the english
"nobody like smartass" -> "niemand mag klug"

and if you replace niemand with keiner
"keiner mag klug"->"no one likes wise"

None of these seem very optimal to me and I don't think anyone will get this.

wjp said in channel that the original phrase is "niemand mag klugscheißer". They just had to mangle it a bit and remove the spaces to have it fit on the code wheels

For completeness, I just rearranged the spaces in dreammaster's earlier comment here ("niemand magklugs cheisser") to form German words. I didn't look at the game or audio itself.
