Thoughts on Puzzle 20 : ALTERED CODE

The puzzle was pretty easy but I am still frustrated about clue 9. I know what the original and altered versions of the answer are (got the original immediately) but the alteration pattern doesn’t seem to be right. I pretty much figured the altered answer based on the letters I had and not actually by altering the original answer. Is it actually right and I’m just not seeing how it works or is it messed up?

I actually got the final answer without having to work out row #9 at all, but since you mention it, I’ve now taken a look. It looks totally fine to me (unless I’ve made a mistake myself). If you’re still curious and unsure about it, let me know and I can tell you how I think #9 works. (I can do it by private message once this round expires, assuming that’s the kosher way to do this sort of thing.)

Finally got #5! The answer was so simple, yet it took me quite some time to understand it. Only after I read it in another intonation then it became clear. I feel so foolish :sweat_smile:

Well yes I can clearly see the hidden words, but I have no idea what the transformation is

Nevermind, solved the puzzle. Embarrassingly, probably the hardest one for me so far. :sweat_smile:

Wow that was fun and hard at the same time. But I managed to solve it in the end. Great surprise the final word I would say. :slight_smile:

Well, I couldn’t sleep anyway. I would have over-thought the puzzle if I were fully awake. Being half-asleep let me float through the puzzle without getting mad at it.

Actually, nevermind, I was looking at it wrong. It hit me when I wrote them down side by side and I realized I was just trying to apply the transformation wrong :sweat_smile:

Done :slight_smile: even without solving all the clues you can try to guess the password. I still don’t know what the 5th clue is :smiling_face_with_tear:. Being non-native hasn’t helped me much either… Good luck for everyone!

Cheers! :slight_smile:

thanks dude:)
got it!

BTW, Puzzle 21 was too easy, nothing to discuss.
