Newest download (20/02/2023) AZdecrypt 1.22: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OMgHA-bm06adGossu4bMu2tcdgzTe3N4/view?usp=sharing (333 MB download)

– 64-bit Windows application.

Source included with download.

Additional n-gram files:

– 7-grams_english_beijinghouse_v6: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1lvh3Ih … sp=sharing (418 MB download)
– 8-grams_english_beijinghouse_v6: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1v9xvmK … sp=sharing (5 GB download)
– 8-grams_english_jarlve_reddit: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1V1N0dp … sp=sharing (1 GB download)

Quickstart guide:

To get started, open the program and click on Open file (or copy-paste a cipher into the input window) and then click on solve and your cipher will be solved.

It comes with a library of built in dimension, manipulation, text and transposition functions. As well as various statistics and formatting options like converting from numbers to characters and vice versa. Support for custom n-gram alphabets and batch solving, look at “Ciphers/Batch/” for examples. No help file, help yourself or ask here.

If you find any bugs or have suggestions I would greatly appreciate the feedback.

Hi Jarlve,

it’s great that you are back! I have read so many of your postings and learned a lot from you (and all the other skilled people here).
I am working on a library in python to test my ideas (analyzing stuff, transposition e.t.c.) for a long time now. AZdecrypt is a very important tool for my work on the cipher and I use it regularly. Thank you for developing and sharing it!
Today I have tried out you new version. I really like the shiny new gui! I hope that I will find a bit more time tomorrow to test it more detailed so that I can give you some feedback.

By the way: What would you say which score "threshold" could be used to differentiate between a "non solve" and a "this could be a real cipher" for a 340 character cipher? (Sorry for my broken english…) Usually I don’t look any closer at results below 20800. Everything above 21000 catches my interest. Would you agree or is my approach too simple?

Regards
Largo

I agree. It is mainly the multiplicity that creates the score threshold. Higher multiplicity loosens the constraints. Other factors are the ngrams log frequencies, ngram size and solver settings.

Wow, cool !! :D
Great, there’s a lot of what I need. I’m learning to work with him now.
But it is best to see that you are well and that Mr. Jarlve has not given up.
Marcelo :)

Mr Jarvle,
Forgive me if I missed something about the cipher manipulation possibilities,
I learned several schemas in the program, looking for n-grams.
I wonder if it is possible to manipulate in the form of "circle", in which the rows and columns walk together, I say in independent movements (clock and counter-clockwise) between the "circles" mounted from the columns and lines ?? !!
(I imagine that in offset this is possible, but at least in the ways that I have been trying I have not been able to)
This program is great.

Already grateful
Marcelo :)

Hi Marclean if you have real difficult patterns you want to try, have a go at this programme. its simple to use for one offs but a bit time consuming..
http://zodiackillerciphers.com/zodiac-pattern-drawer
Once you have the pattern you want, save to notebook and drop the numbers onto AZdecrypt.. ps AZdecrypt can also convert numbers to symbols if needed.

Hey Marclean,

Do you mean a spiral pattern like this? Or could you draw an image of what you mean? Thanks for using AZdecrypt.

Hello Mr Lowe and Mr Jarlve
Yes, I have used this program, but to build independent CIPHERs, perhaps because of my lack of skill, it is very difficult.
What I have imagined are motions in the original cipher or in my "z289" theorem, are left and right movements (or no movement) independently between the "rings" formed by the rows and columns, from the outermost to the innermost ring, Like gears, (I imagined this by thinking of the z408 construct, in which the author created his symbols from letters on a typewriter, I thought that ‘it is possible that in the second cipher he looked at a clock and also by the obvious circle symbol Crossed).
I have done these movements, imagine how combinations of a safe
Example 2 for left, 3 for right etc.
Below is a sample drawing
But every combination of the manual way I’ve been doing has taken days of analysis. One way or another, AZ and ZK have been great for the amateur analysis I’ve done.
I’m grateful :)

Exemple
Ring one

>------ v
-       -
-       -
^------ <

Ring two

 
v----<
-    -
>--- ^

This example I think is clearer,
I moved the outer band (blue)formed by the rows and columns clockwise house. Keep the rest as original
Would be a combination = 3 "houses " clockwise track 1 (blue), 0 for the remaining tracks

Okay Marclean,

So you want to change the offset of any particular rectangular ring in a cipher. Each ring would then be defined by 4 arguments, say in a 17 by 17 rectangle the outer ring would be x1=1, y1=1, x2=17, y2=17. The second outer ring would be x1=2, y1=2, x2=16, y2=16 and so on. And then a fifth argument to control the offset. That’s what you want right? I have to commend you on this idea, it’s quite original and I wonder if it could relate to the 340.

12345
6   6
5   7
4   8
32109

offset +1 for (x1=1, y1=1, x2=5, y2=5)

61234
5   5
4   6
3   7
21098
