Does it have anything to do with the first letter of every sentence?

It keep saying: "Nope. Try again."
What should I do? when he says "Enter a message" ?

i have comed to the part where it gives me the encoded message, but i'm not good at this stuff :'(
anyone has some tips on how to decode?
i don't understand these language, if it is one at all XD

i think that's meant to be the clue. i'm stuck there as well. XD
and i think has something to do with maths...

Why are things like this so hard...>_<

Does it have something to do with all the number questions being asked?

So is this just a cypher? Because then my frequency analysis would be worth something.

Yeah, when it says 'the first line is the KEY', does it mean the abbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb line? Humm...


Re: Cryptography Challenge 9!

and i noticed that the 'abbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb' thing has exactly 26 letters (i.e. 25 b's after the a). This may mean something....

Yeah, I counted, I noticed that. But...nyeh...this is difficult...
Getting there...
I wonder if Engineer will be able to figure this out...

Here's my frequency analysis of it (excepting the abbbbbbbbbb... part at the begining). I don't really know how to approach decoding a cypher with this though. I guess we can assume X is E, and move on from there, but I'm too lazy to do all that right now.

It seems that the (abbbb..) indicates a shift in the value of each letter from its first use to all other following uses. This, if true, would throw off a simple numerical analysis of appearences.

I may be simply overthinking it though.

i will offer that the message must be decrypted in order (left to right, top to bottom, just like english text), and that the first letter of the decrypted message is always the same as the first letter of the encrypted message.

Ah, so that is what it means. Thanks.
