Challenge "Find the right route — Part 3"

Challenge "Find the right route — Part 3"  

  By: admin on Dec. 26, 2020, 6:24 p.m.

This series deals with a grid — a basic tool cryptographers use to separate sequences of data into columns and rows. In this challenge you are given three grids where the first grid gives you hints to reveal the plaintext of the second grid. Are you able to find the right route?

Am I supposed to follow the route in the 3rd graphic file, and then fill in what I get into a new grid? If so, I am getting nonsense.

Thanks.

Hello madness,

I see you have solved the part 2 so I think you should have no problems solving the part 3 too - the two parts are pretty much the same. Most probably you used wrong dimensions of a grid.

Hello,

I found the words and the sentence. I think I got the format right from the PDF, yet I am told it is the wrong answer. Is there a subtlety in the format? I wrote the following on a single line of course; no other punctuation than the comma.

word1
space
word2
comma
space
word 1 of sentence
space
word 2 of sentence
space
….
last word

I tried with and without a space after the last word.

Any help will be appreciated, thanks,

Eric

Hello Eric,
your format of solution is right, probably some misspellings? Send me your solution in PM I will check it.

Viktor,

if I'm not mistaken you once complained about a challenge that entering the correct solution was more difficult than solving the challenge itself.
That seems to be the case with this challenge also.

'Sencence' seems unambiguous unless the actual solution has more than one…, so in what order should I put them?

I am sorry you had difficulties to enter the solution.

It is explained what is meant by sentence - concretely it is stated: "sentence - the whole plaintext of the last image" in PDF. If I am not mistaken there is only one path that gives you meaningful solution - and this path gives you exact order of all words in the whole plaintext. Unless you cut the path into several sub-paths, but there is no indication you should do so. The first image in all parts of challenges contains one continuous path - and this image gives all clues you need. If it was needed to find several paths it would be mentioned in PDF.

Anyway, sorry again for any inconvenience caused - maybe I overlooked something - but as far as I know there should be only one unique solution. There could be a problem if the path was a loop - but again if I remember correctly the path was not a loop in the part 3.

I am sorry you had difficulties to enter the solution.

And I am sorry that I bothered you with my own mistake ;-)
I somehow was under the impression that it was not one continuous path but i was mistaken. Sorry!
