On the Subject of the Monosodium Glutamate CM

A machine that knows no bounds when it comes to ciphers.

From the Fur Cipher module by MageMage.

Create a key using the keyword on screen 1 and the Boolean Expression on screen A. This will be referred to as Key A.

Create another key using the keyword on screen 2 and the Boolean Expression on screen B. This will be referred to as Key B.

Put 13 dashes above and below Key B, alternating between a space and a dash. If the Boolean Expression on Screen C is true, the 13 dashes above starts with a dash and the 13 dashes below starts with a space. Otherwise, do it the other way around. Replace each dash with the letters in Key A in reading order.

If the Submit Button is white, follow the instructions under Encrypt Instructions. Otherwise follow the instructions under Decrypt Instructions.

Encrypt Instructions

  • Find the Nth letter of the encrypted word in Key B.
  • Move left an X amount of letters, wrapping around to the right side. X is equal to the alphabetic position (A1Z26) of the Nth letter displayed on screen 4 (wrapping around when necessary).
  • Move to the letter in Key A that is above/below the column you're at.
  • Find this letter in Key B and replace it with the letter that is above/below in Key A.
  • Find that letter in Key A and move right an X amount of letters, skipping any spaces, wrapping around to the left side of that row. X is equal to the Nth digit displayed on screen 3.
  • The letter you end up on becomes your Nth decrypted letter.

Decrypt Instructions

  • Find the Nth letter of the encrypted word in Key A.
  • Move left an X amount of letters in this row, skipping any spaces ,wrapping around to the right side of that row. X is equal to the Nth digit on screen 3.
  • Move to the Key B, staying in the same column to get a new letter. Find this letter in Key A.
  • Move back to Key B again and go right an X amount of letters, wrapping around to the left side. X is equal to the alphabetic position (A1Z26) of the Nth letter displayed on screen 4 (wrapping around when necessary).
  • The letter you end up on becomes your Nth decrypted letter.
