Waitā¦ which SCP entry is thisā¦ Iām looking all over the SCP wiki and am having issues finding this oneā¦

I meanā¦ once I find the SCP entry for this, itāll be a simple matter to solve itā¦

I donāt think I gave anything away, just some basic decryption strategy, which I expect most programmers already know.

You donāt mean http://www.scp-wiki.net/ do you?

I may mean that oneā¦

In my opinion this problem has 3 parts:

• figuring out how the encryption works
• finding a decryption strategy
• coding the thing

Would it be as fun if there was only the last part?

What is special about the validator 2? All my test cases and the other validators running fine. Do I have to be flexible with white spaces or line endings? The format in the test cases looks very strict.

I donāt know
Could you please explain how to find the decryption code?
I think the given input should be arranged in a particular pattern, based on the given output. But I could not figure out how to find the pattern!!

Being careful is a good strategy. Assume nothing. I didnāt have any trouble with any of the validation tests on this one, but I have run into problems on other puzzles.

Hi, i am stuck on validatorsā¦ All tests are passing, Validator 2,3,4 are passing but Validator 1 is failingā¦
Any hints?

Thnx

Are you handling the names of ALL the digits?

@Dogwon thnx for hint, but that isnāt problem. I am handling all digitsā¦all 10 of them.

Le codage utilisĆ© est simple, mais pas Ć©vident Ć  deviner pour ceux dont lāAnglais nāest pas la langue maternelle.

Yes, I can imagine it would be very difficult. Perhaps you could rewrite the puzzle so it uses a French phrase. Then we could see if any English speakers could solve it.

How do I find the key?
I tried to use the difference between the first character from the message and the letter āTā but that is not working.

āHow do I find the key ?ā is precisely the purpose of this puzzle, so nobody will answers that, and what the interest if you donāt find it yourself ?
