On the Subject of the Yellow Cipher
“They call me mellow yellow” - said no cipher ever.
On the module, you will see 3 screens, a keyboard, 2 arrows, and a submit button that displays the current page you're on.
Pressing the right arrow takes you to the next page. Pressing the left arrow takes you to the previous page. There is a total of 2 pages.
On page 1, the top screen shows a 6 letter encrypted word, the middle and bottom screen shows an encrypted number.
On page 2, the top screen shows another encrypted number, the middle screen shows an eight letter word, the bottom screen shows 4 numbers separated by dashes.
Follow the mechanics down below to decrypt your word:
Step 1: Morbit Cipher
First thing we need to do is to decipher the 3 encrypted numbers shown on the middle and bottom screens on page 1 and the top screen on page 2. Concatenate the 3 screens into one string of numbers.
Next take the word on the middle screen on page 2 and write numbers 1-8 under the word in such a way that the ascending numbers are going in alphabetical order. If there's a tie between letters, then accend in reading order. Ex: OPTIMISM -> 56813274
Then write this string underneath the 8 number key:
Now what you should have is a key that shows each number that translates into the characters below them.
Take the entire encrypted number and use the key to translate to dots, dashes, and Xs. Read it as Morse code treating the Xs as spaces between letters.
