Re: Noops Week Three: Riddlebot discussion

Hello,

 

Are we 100% certain this bot works? (I know, I know :P)

I think I have tried all possible 4-numbers keys (each number from 0 to 25 included) for the vigenere with a lost key step, and none of them seems to generate a list of words whose at least 50% of them are known English words. (I assumed the message was plain English, maybe I was wrong?)

Out of completedness I also tried the 1, 2, 3, and 5-numbers keys, but the riddle message does say there are 4 numbers in the key…

 

I’m lost now… I might have had my code wrong too.

 

EDIT: I got it. The wording might have been better for this exercise…

Hi @Frizlab, glad you got it! What wording was confusing so we can fix it for other folks?

I don’t see how to answer that without spoiling the riddle, and for the life of me I cannot find a way to send a private message on this website 😐 Is it a reputation thing like SO? Anyway, if you can PM me I’d be glad to reply.

I've tried also brute force without results.
