[Non-CA Game] Codes

Postby Saka » July 5th, 2017, 9:20 pm

Let's start a little game where we decrypt each other's codes! Here's how it works:
1. A person posts a code
2. Another person solves it
3. The solver posts a code
4. If the solver refuses, he posts "Pass"
Repeat.
For the codes, there are rules too!
1. Don't make it too hard, no prime-number encryption, or anything too hard.
1.5 If it is somewhat difficult or people request it, you must provide an example of decryption or a crew.
2. The decrypted code can not have swears, personal info, or the like.
Here is the first code, pretty easy:
ayjqocwhn:3589 659712
If you're the person that uploaded to Sakagolue illegally, please PM me.
x = 17, y = 10, rule = B3/S23
b2ob2obo5b2o$11b4obo$2bob3o2bo2b3o$bo3b2o4b2o$o2bo2bob2o3b4o$bob2obo5b
o2b2o$2b2o4bobo2b3o$bo3b5ob2obobo$2bo5bob2o$4bob2o2bobobo!

Is there unused information in there, or am I missing some significance? It's too bad that

ayj(rt)ocwhn:3589 85459 659712

isn't quite as clean.

1. There is some unused things to muslead you

My answer is the first and last name of a mathematician.

My new code challenge, for someone who hasn't solved the first one yet, is

ayj(rt)ocwhn:3589 85459 659712

You'll just have to pretend that there's a Unicode character that combines an "r" and a "t" into a single letter.

Or in true Computer Science fashion you could have used zero.

Hm. Should have thought of that. Well, then,

Going with assigning 0123456789 gives John Horton Conway.

This one should be easy too, or maybe a bit harder (it is something about the Game of Life):

Yeah, I think I went a bit overboard. I'll give a hint. The first two words are "The pentadecathlon"

What program do you use for encrypted (e.g. C++)?

Python with a very simple script that I wrote.
Another clue: the text is reversed, but the word lengths are as it is.

first step is "yjr qrmysfevsyjapm, yphryjrt eoyj yjr naomlrt, od pmr pg yjr yep lmpem pdvoaasyptd yjsy str s qpaupzomp om zptr yjsm pmr qjsdr",

Answer is "The pentadecathlon, together with the blinker, is one of the two known oscillators that are a polyomino in more than one phase."
Correct?

Yes!! How was it coded? (I forgot)
