Ask yourself why you didn't try this before asking your question.

The hints really provided great info...
Now its up to the brain to figure out the code..
Does the code have meaning?? Or is it just a list of random alphabets??

Tonight, We dine...IN HELL!!

well it says... "decode the secret message encoded below:"
If it's a message, it probably isn't going to be random alphabets.

Im guessing for this coded message i should find a relation between the numbers, make out a possible equation, write down a list of numbers listing from 1-28+ and decode the code following A=1, B=2... n so on??

Huh? I suppose I feel as confused trying to understand your question as you do trying to understand this challenge.

the math's not working out for me... so I must be misinterpreting the hints...
random example:
... 6 3 4 5 1...
Method A) The "two adjacent numbers" to 4 are 3 & 5, the two ON EITHER SIDE.
Method B) The "two adjacent numbers" to 4 are 5 & 1, the two DIRECTLY AFTER.

edit:

do you HAVE to start at the beginning (Method B)? 15 is the addition of whatever letters 6 and 25 become?? which method is correct?!

encode("FCDEA")
= encode(6, 3, 4, 5, 1)
= 6+3, 3+4, 4+5, 5+1, 1+6
= 9, 7, 9, 6, 7

Actually, I just realized...

did it go from #35 to #37? what happened to Crypto #36??

Re: Cryptography Challenge #37!

It's not ready yet. Under construction. I finished this one first, as it happened.

I have my bachelor's degree in computer science.
Of course, as part of my degree I was required to take a year of physics.
Since physics is my hobby, and I did audit a few advanced undergraduate courses.
