I’ll do the same, hoping that I can retrace my steps. If not I have the decrypted message. But the fun part is the decrypting. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me. Or send me an email.
I have again followed the advanced procedure as I understand it and feel confident with the process. I have rechecked the tables for Nov 2018 and can only conclude that I am using the wrong reference tables (including K Book) although have tried alternatives. So, the above posted by nilatcb is where I left off. Very curious to see outcome.
Thank you. I have now decoded the msg: torpedoes, Cairo and of course change of all settings including incorrect bigram table and now new transposed message key. I am going back to 2018 Triton dateset just to see precisely where Mauser's message led me to such confusion. Again thanks and a good one example for newbies to look at.🙂
2019 seems way better organized than 2018. 2018 had a couple of Triton and bigrams, no Hydra in the 2018 Dropbox and so on.
As a side note, if you look at the link of the attachments in your post, it's enigmaworldcodegroup.freeforums.net/attachment/download/116. The attachments posted on the welcome thread have 78, 79 and 80 as index. I tried all numbers from 1 to 101, didn't think to go higher. The last valid one was 96, office to officer. I should probably write a small web crawler and search, index and put them in one single location.
