separator unmatched
hi newbie here. i really need help. i got errors "on line 1 (�.�t�$'�): Token length exception" . i have tried all methods and tried find the solution on google but still same. can anyone help me? almost give up.
Hard to say without knowing your command line but I suspect you switched the parameters for wordlist and hashlist.
Im sorry this is my cmd line :hashcat -m 22400 -a 3 /home/The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali)/Downloads/Key/IMAGE_KEY --force

and just now i tried with different hash mode: hashcat -m 1400 -a 3 /home/The-Distribution-Which-Does-Not-Handle-OpenCL-Well (Kali)/Downloads/Key/IMAGE_KEY --force and the error is different "in line 1 (�.�t�$'�): Token length exception"
never use --force. if there are problems with hashcat fix them.

I have no idea what kind of hash you are trying to crack but two things seem obvious:
1. you need to use the correct hash mode for whatever you are trying to crack
2. the hash data you have does not seem to be in the correct format if it is supported by hashcat at all

Additionally, when doing a mask attack you should specify a mask. The default mask is rarely what you want.
ok i wont use --force in future. now its working but the status is exhausted. maybe i should insert mask on my cmd codes?
I'm just new. Probably, you're not using the correct hash type
Yes i used wrong hash. now problem solved. but i stuck because the status is exhausted.
Could you please explain what you are trying to crack (which type of hashes) and how you are testing ?

The best thing probably would be to just test example hashes from , to make sure you have the correct hash format and use correct passwords (the password if not otherwise noted is hashcat) and the corresponding hashes.
