    Looks like a plane old substition cypher to me.

    Now I know that there a few guys here who love this sort of thing .................
    BUT
    they do need a 'little' bit of background .......

    Where is it from ?
    Why are you trying to 'break' it ?
    is it time critical ? [a game / challenge / homework ]

    can someone help me please ?
    I'm sure someone can ............
    you just need to start the 'help' ball rolling.

    OK
    It's a game ..........

    Do you have a link ?
    Others may want to learn too ...........

    As for help ..........
    I found that the book [paper + print ]
    The Code Book by Simon Singh [ISBN 1-85702-889-9]

    gives a good all round intro into cryptography

    and at a guess I'd plump for a varient on the Vigenere cipher

    neo-1,

    You don't have to solve the whole thing, only enough of it to figure the rest out. Just like any other encryption, it can be broken with time. For this game, I would set up a “One-to-One Mapping”. Meaning either horizontally or vertically, write down all the 26 letters of the Alphabet in proper order. Then use your hint to advance each letter by the given amount. L 2, Z 1, E 3, R 6,G 5, etc. That means advance L +2 or L = N, Z +1 or Z = A, etc., places to obtain the correct letter.

    A...B...C...D...E...F...G...H...I...J...K...L...M...N...O...P...Q...R...S...T...U...V...W...X...Y...Z

    ....................H.........L.....................N.............................X........................................A


    That should get you started. In the ciphered text look for letters utilized multiply times and try find the sequence of the substitution. Sometimes that is difficult, but it is there.

    cheers

    NEO-1,

    Well I really doubt if we could get a WWII German Enigma Machine on Ebay, however, I have toyed with simulators from this site you might give them a whirl. I'll go to the game site and see what's up.

    You can get copies of the Banbury sheets with explanations on how to use them. Just google them.

    cheers
