HMHRX JSSJ ASY XLMW XMQG

The title si the clue.
I know a lot of you know how to solve it. It's just hard to figure out.

Were U get that?

Since Tyler is using a J to encrypt
both F and L, this isn't even a
simple substitution cipher.

Why not use J to encrypt every
letter?
Here's one for Tyler to solve:
JJJJJJ JJ JJJJ JJJJJJJ JJJJ
JJJJJJJ JJJJJJJ JJ JJJ JJJJ
JJJJJJ JJ JJJJ JJJJ JJJJJ
JJJJJJJJJ.

I'm not using a letter to encrypt. your getting rot-rotten at this Stan.

You encrypted
DIDN'T FOOL YOU THIS TIME
as
HMHRX JSSJ ASY XLMW XMQG,
did you not?

Notice that both the F and the L
in FOOL were encrypted
as J's.

You got got the right answer but it used a rot-2 and that gave out some lettes....then yu use rot-1 to get the answer.
 Message: Posted by: stanalger (Jul 20, 2005 03:37PM)
Blazes816,

What does "and that gave out some lettes" mean?
Using rot-2 and then super-encrypting using
rot-1 is no different than simply using rot-3
in the first place.

Your encryption was "mostly" rot-4...with a few
exceptions. It would still be a simple substitution
encipherment if it weren't for the double-use of
the ciphertext letter J.

Could you reword your last post so that it makes
sense?

I ment letters. I assumed nobody would think of multiple layers.

I still don't know what "and that gave out some letters"
means.

I think half of the letters were encoded using a rot-1 and half rot-2. Is that right blazes?

Plaintext:
DIDN'T FOOL YOU THIS TIME

Ciphertext:
HMHRX JSSJ ASY XLMW XMQG

Number of positions each
letter was shifted forward in the
alphabet:

4-4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-24, 2-4-4, 4-4-4-4, 4-4-4-2

So...almost all of the letters were encrypted
using ROT-4, two were encrypted ROT-2, and
one was encrypted ROT-24.

NONE were encrypted ROT-1.

In that case, I have no idea what Blazes meant either.

Nevr mind. Stan ot it. I'll make a new puzzle with the same cipher.
