trying to crack this code any one want to help me


Crack the following code.
Please note, you’ll need to have read Codex to gain all the clues, including full details of what an “E.L.S.” actually is.

Here is the puzzle - 3600 characters (and that’s your first clue).
Simply copy and paste them into software of your choice:


There are two answers

Part 1 and Part 2

Part 1 could be somthing to do with missing letters but not sure
Part 2 i think is to do with a picture hidden in the text but struggling with this

Then look at the last letter of each line it gives you trhe sentence
FIRST PART OF ANSWER DERIVED FROM LETTERS MISSING FROM THE REST OF GRID.
The only letter missing is C

As for the image replace z y and x with spaces and it looks like Humphrey Bogart as Rick Blaine in Casablanca.

How did you determine which letters to replace, trog0?

Have you read Adrian Dawson's "Codex" book?

Yes, "C" is the only letter absent from the grid of characters.

However, is the wording of the statement including "derived" & "rest of grid" a clue (or a red herring)?

BFN,

fp.

In the thread I provided the link to above, the author of the "Codex" book (Adrian Dawson) suggests that you now have to "go off at a tangent" like the character in his book & that you will probably not determine the tangent to take without reading about it first.

BFN,

fp.

Too complicated. Voted cold.

unfortunately one of your answers is not correct....to give you a little help...part one....missing letters from the rest of the grid....not missing letter.

Well, yes, letters is plural. "C" (alone) is not the answer to part one.

I think you are doing Humphrey Bogart a disservice by referring to him as "that rick guy"!

The text down the side of the grid (when formatted to 60 columns by 60 rows) reads as I provided above.

Can you read the "book" on any other device that may have a larger screen? It may be easier to understand/find the relevant explanation of what led the book character to remove the letters "x", "y", & "z" for instance.

(I'm going to have to buy the book myself by the sounds of it)

BFN,

fp.

i coudlnt remeber his name, as ave never seen that film

i have it on my amazon kindle for iphone, wondered if that would be use on the mac as well

Original Poster

As you state...First answer is derived from letters missing from the rest of the grid...what letters are missing and what can you make out of those missing letters which is relevant to the second answer...

i thought you would have sussed it by now, I'm going with nikki's answer http://mcs.acidpit.org/images/smilies/boobs.gif
