yeah ouch i am kicking myself, its a shift cipher embedded in a caesar cipher
how did i not see that :'(
Failing everything, but I'm still Flareon up.

This one?

still trying to work it out. do you railfence cipher first then use caesar cipher or what? using 2 is a rather clever way to do it i must say

I did the message on the fence and then Ceasared it, so you'll have to do the inverse...

Yeah, I get that it's basic Enigma. (I knew someone would eventually do this...);)

But when do your rotors switch? 1/26?

'cause I get the Transcoded text to be YDMYVL, which I assume should be YDMYDM, as in the 'Scrib' for further encoding?

Rotors never 'switch'. The least significant rotor (LSR) moves 1 position each time a character is inputted. Once the LSR has moved 26 times, the 2nd LSR moves. (It's like counting upwards in base 26 but with letters and taking the start position as 000).

Also, make sure you have operations in the correct order, signals go into the board first, and then the rotors from least significant to most significant :).

MASSIVE HINT: The configuration I gave may or may not have been the encoding configuration :o

And the answer is not "YDMYVL". It will be obvious when you have the correct answer :)

Ok.
I just threw the plug board combo's and the rotor start positions into an enigma simulator app, and that's what it gave me.

I guess I'm gonna have to try my hand at Berkeley Park... :-\
