Re: Scioly Assassination 134: Cyberstrike

We need to start working on ID sooner or later... Here's what I noticed in this most recent clue: ⋅ Use of high tide instead of high time (may have been a typo?) ⋅ Dark Knight quote in signature... the sassies seem to like movies. Possibly a connection between those that have be...

Re: Codebusters C

Does anyone have any tricks on how to do xenocrypt without knowing spanish? I feel like there's gotta be a trick somewhere that I'm missing.

Re: Codebusters C

Idk how to put a matrix but I did D R E W B R E E S It's supposed to be D R E W B R E E S (Z) and then multiply by the 2x2 matrix keyword You can't multiply those two matrices. They don't line up. It's supposed to be the VEAR matrix multiplied by \begin{vmatrix}D\\R\end{vmatrix} and then the VEAR m...

Re: Texas 2019

Just wondering (this has probably been asked before somewhere), how many teams from each regionals go to state? Well they normally take a percentage of teams depending on the amount of teams there are at the regional. I remember last year when one of the regionals got canceled, they let an extra te...

Re: Codebusters C

Is there a standard format for this event? Last year's nationals test provided frequency tables and the Vigenere table as well, but some invitationals I've seen provide neither. What can I expect from regionals and states? Ideally they should provide the Vigenere table, letters to numbers (A = 0, B...

Finding repeating chunks in the problem can allow you to see patterns and guess what word it is (probably "the", or another another commonly used word). Letter frequency also helps a lot if you know the order (ETAOIN)

https://scioly.org/wiki/index.php/Sounds_of_Music is a good place to start because the general idea will be the same, but the scoring is more likely to be changed.
