Default Puzzling Program!

In short, this is a small black box for a program (ugly I know) I plan to make that will consist of a massive collection of these.

Anyway. HERE is a program I made in java. It hides a sentence. You put something in, it spits it out.

There are a few bits of information that I will give you.

1. The answer is a sentence that ends in a period.

2. And incorrect characters will result in massively distorted results to itself, and minorly distorted results to the character left and right.

If the answer is cat and you put in cct, you get dgu. (2 character away results in the left character character being off by 1, the middle character being off by 4, and the right character off by 1).

First 3 people to private message me with the correct sentence will receive a credit prize!

Each one will get 30k credits! Good luck. You'll need it.

In short, this is an experiment, just to see how well a puzzle like this would work/how easy it is to solve.

Fair enough. XD I meant it to be a private message though. I didn't know you could open up jars like that though. If I did, it'd have saved me in a loooot of jams. How did you open it?

A .jar is compressed, you'd have to decompress using 7zip or something similar before getting the actual text.

yeah if you want to do something like this and prevent what YoshL and co. did, .jars are really easy to open

I would recommend choosing a different compiled language, but even C is easy-ish to reverse engineer if you have the right tools

honestly I would recommend embedding this in some kind of web app ---

server computer (yours) does all of the computing in secret, and the client side manages answer requests and stuff

cool idea though, would be interested in seeing more!

EDIT: You can still use Java for serverside code if you use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JavaServer_Pages

EDIT EDIT: Final option would be using a code obfuscator but I think there are ways to decode plaintext strings in code so you'd need to be careful

Also, lol he didn't know you could view source of a jar with Notepad++
