*looks at the end of the Stego page*
hmm... *looks at the end of 14*

I mean.... I dont see why they would name the other one 15...

Let me ask this then. Does Level 14 have anything to do with

Find what 1 is not


? If it does, then Im mistaken and sorry. If not... then yes, I meant 15.

i found the key too, it was quite easy
but the cipher finding part is driving me nuts :shock: , going by the hints in the image, i have tried all sorts of things, coffee cipher, football cipher (ofcourse i made them up, none of then exist). I thought it would be WA** CI**** but i dont think so now. Can somebody tell if im on the right path?
PS : Whats that "*" doing there in the key? is it simple arithmetic or is there more to it? i really dont know much about maths. :|

I guess i know what the cipher is.... but what, do i have to know about what additive inverse, multiplicative inverse and thingys like that are? ah.....

ok, you've done well so far- you have the key and i assume the cipher text. now usually ciphers take a textual key but the key you have isn't textual- how many ciphers are there like this? And trust me on this, read the hints in the image- there are no spelling errors.

Thanx for the reply! i think i know what the cipher is ( AF**** ). I found a nice looking decryptor which included alphabets as well as numerals. no luck so far...

yes, you have the right cipher- google for a decrypter- i only found one, remember how there are two components to the key? that means your decrypter should have two seperate boxes for each component of the key to go in so check for that to see if you have the right cipher decrypter. If you decrypt it, chances are the answer will be wrong- this is because the font that the ciphertext is in is really hard to read lol- bear in mind that all the ciphertext is in uppercase and look carefully for the curves to see what the characters are.

Thanx a lot for the reply!!
I used a different decryptor this time, and i could swear that i had the right answer! it is almost gramatically correct. (Something related to construction work...). guess i have to try some more..

"it is almost gramatically correct." Why not just try what you have? :o

oh believe me, i have tried many things. either i am misreading the cipher (PGN****** , i blame the font), or there is some other problem i dont know about. I tried what i found, i was quite sure of it when i found it but it didnt work.It really DOES look like a password, but it doesnt work. (BUL.......). I am out of ideas now :sigh:

I am stuck at the same point. I see some extra data hidden in the image, and I guess the BUL... word is the key
to another cipher. But there are far too many possibilities. The most obvious choice for the cipher text
is 136 bytes. Is that right ? I tried on it a very old cipher which looked a plausible canditate, but no luck ...
