Re: Crypt-It

Looks like it needs a line

Code: Select all

CryptMessage$=CryptMessageContents$ 
after line 189

Code: Select all

Re: Hangman

Played a few rounds of Hangman (Geography set) - me and kid (age 13).
Interesting - we guess words we have no slightest idea about, like "Montpellier".
(just googled it to *have* idea)
I guess that means we heard it somewhere before, but without meaning.

Re: Crypt-It

Something is wrong with last version.
Then I try to decrypt, letters "v" appears in wrong places - and even between letters.
And substituted letters appear not at all places but only from start.

Re: Crypt-It

Ah. But that's just another problem. So instead of looking for 6-letter words I discard all spaces and INSTR decoded variants with all words from dictionary (set for len()>3 to remove short jitter) One with more words occurring likely wins. (target line has 5 hits) Indeed I saw the message. It would...

Re: Crypt-It

Wow. You really puzzled me. First, checking all numeric keys did not made a word. (I checked against UNIXDICT - literally not a word!) I see there is actually not 1000 but 26! (factorial, 4.03291461 × 10^26) possible transpositions, so you may just scramble it by hand, not by code. Ok then. Next, I ...

Re: Crypt-It

How to use scratch pad Run the program. Enter (paste) the message to decode. Press "Decrypt" button. Second row of buttons will turn BOLD ("free" letters - they will fade one-by-one as you use them), under it source (cipher) text will be displayed. Pick a letter from cipher text. Let it be "X". Clic...

Re: Crypt-It

Hello Jack Really nice program though you probably need to explain how to use scratchpad - I couldn't figure that out for a while. Really small code for what it does. I was able to dechipher sample code, starting for most common THREE letter word :) (it was not so long ago when I tried "The Gold-Bug...
