Look at the values of the different greens. Do they tell you anything?

I've taken the values of all the greens, and 12 of those 76 numbers are values with letters in it. I just don't know what to do with those letters. there isn't a set pattern or anything. I'm stumped.

So, you know it's not decimal, since it has letters.
What numbering system uses letters AND numbers, and is also used for making color values?

I don't get it.. Why should I use another numbering System? With Decimal I get a crypted ASCII String in this Format:

bla bla, blabla. bla bla bla 'xyzxyz'.

Any hints how to decode this String or where I should use Hex?

I think you're able to imagine that xyzxyz can't be the answer Wink

so try to use another numbering system ...

a numbering system with letters in it ...

There isn't "xyzxyz" -.-'
That was in example of the structure: With points and '..

When I try Hex or something the whole string is damaged.
Because things like ' ', '.', ',' ''' (32,46,44,39) are right. With a number system like hex they are broken.

i'm so sorry ... i thoght about the wrong challenge ...

with 32,46,44,39 youre right ... they're broken in hex ...

so you have to take the digits like they are ... looking up their meaning like you did with 32,46 and so on ... you're on the right way !
