### Section 1: Glyph tables, Button value

Glyphs Table Button Value Calculations
ABCDEF
1. If the button color is black // white or gray // else,
begin with I = 30 // I = 20 // I = 0.
2. Add 70 // 35 // 5 if button text CONTAINS same colour name // complementary colour name // any colour or "COLOUR".
3. Add 60 for each EXACT same unencrypted display text.
4. Add 15 for each display text that is the same colour as the button, and add 10 for each complementary colour.
5. Use the table below to find which display text's final values are T1, T2, and T3 for each button.
Position of buttonT1T2T3

The final value of each button, F, is then given by the equation:

F = 3I + 2(T1 + T2 + T3)

Press the 4th-1st highest, in stage 1-4 respectively. Button value order may change every stages.

S1(A8) Submission: Yn = Xn

S2(D2,A7) / S3(D4,A6) Submssion: Yn = Xn ± Yn-1; + if THEN, vice versa.

S4(A2 & A4) Submission: btn text → disp color (D2,D4) → btn color → add/abs diff if same/diff text.

Ps refers to the position of symbol after encryption (first if there are multiple symbols, excluding appended).Pl refers to letters in position n instead.
A = P(correct) - P(shifted), modulo length of text.
B = encrypted - unencrypted AP.

### Section 3: How to use the manual manual

#### A. Overview

This manual assumes that you have knowledge on terms used for this module. If one part is not understood, either refer back the original manual or several other alternative manuals.

Page 1 contains tables and their relevant uses, which are:

• Glyphs table (C values calculation)
• Button value calculation table (Final button values, X values)
• Color table (Complementary colors)
• Value X table (X values calculation)
• Appended symbols table (appended symbols of displays 2,4,6,7,8 decryption, and button press timings)
• Stage 4 symbol table (to determine which symbol for final stage)

Page 2 contains tables and their relevant uses, which are:

• Alphabet position difference (AP) table (Text finding and B values calculation)
• 5A column (A values calculation)
• Display text color lookup table (R values calculation)
• E trick (to Displays 1,3,5 text)

#### B. The E trick

The 3rd letter in displays 1,3,5 will be always be E and it is always located before a symbol. Based on whether the letters are identical (shown in red), the word can be easily determined, as well as their corresponding values.

For example, the second word E_XEEX is LETTER, E_XXXXXE is PHRASE, E_XXXXXX is COLOUR.

After obtaining the second word, the first word can also be determined in the same way using letters E,H,T and O.

#### C. The AP table

The original instruction can be found in Page 3 of this manual. This manual adds several extra optimization on top. Those includes marking AP between symbols grey, and unique and easily spottable text with blue.

#### D. A value calculations

Based on the AP determined and its difference, A value can be easily calculated by using the position of letter/symbol after encryption, minus its position before encryption, modulo the length of string.
It is reminded that the position of leftmost letter must be used to calculate the A value.

For example: display text is ECHO if unencrypted, and the AP is 2 and 26 (BZ) and the difference is 24, the position of the correct position is n, which is 1, from the AP table.
While the position of the symbol which has an AP of 2 is located in 4th (excluding appended symbols)(Z__B). Hence A=(4-1)%4 = 3. (the word has been shifted 3 times to the left during encryption)
