Hey glasshopper,

I'm sorry to hear about your frustration with this challenge. This challenge is however not about fiddling with "correct" capitalization.

As noted in the challenge hints and as @be has mentioned two pages earlier:

// SNIP
Did you use an alphabet with 62 characters, which consists of the three partial alphabets upper-case letters, lower-case letters, and the 10 digits (0, …, 9)? These three partial alphabets have to be arranged in the right order.
// SNIP

For all the people who get stuck and didn't look at the hint or the previous 9 pages:
[size=150]If your numbers look strange or there are some weird capital letters in the plaintext, YOU ARE NOT USING THE CORRECT ALPHABET![/size]
Please carefully read the hints and previous forum posts. You are not required to guess any characters in the plaintext. With the correct alphabet, the plaintext will have the correct case.

Greetings, Bernd

Same was everyone else. I thought i had the solution right. Yes, the capitalization was weird, i fixed it manually, and pasted it and… it didn't works.

It turn out the number were wrong to.

If you have to change capitalization manually (instead of fixing the alphabet) then you did something wrong.

1) Find the shift key (very easy)
2) Fix your alphabet by adding numbers
3) Fix your alphabet until everything become perfect without manually patching the solution.
4) ???
5) Profit !

Hi everyone,

I wonder whether you could help me with this challenge. I have tried to solve it by hand and I do not know what I am doing wrong. I had tried to decrypted using the shifting of 4 however the systems tells me that I am doing something wrong. I have read previuos posts though I still do not know what I am doing wrong. Could you please help me out with this one.

Kindest regards,

@Ajneel You're close! Check your order of whole sentences and the case of some letters again.
