EDIT: ohhh... i just found the answer. i really like that magic guy, both this crackme and his previous one (10) were very good. he reminds me of an old friend who made crackmes that seem impossible, but make you want to punch yourself in the face when you figure out what the answer was.
anyway, ill give u a hint: i solved this crackme without the use of a debugger\decompiler of any kind, and by a complete accident. remember, the world's greatest discoveries were made by an accident
(and no, i didnt guess the password)
