You can just do MOD 9 on EACH value that you calculate in the fibonacci sequence -- you don't need to let the sum get large. in excel you could put the seeds in A1 and A2 then in A3 put:
=MOD(A1+A2,9)
Then just copy that formula down the whole column.

Haha, was it as simple as that? *smacks forehead* :redface: Thanks.

EDIT: Well, some of the letters aren´t correct by this method. Not that it matters though, since you could figure out the right letter... (and I had already calculated the right one in most cases). I guess no method is perfect.

Actually now I see that this method sometimes return a zero... which is impossible using the calculating method. This is why some letter aren´t correct.

EDIT: Hehe, just realized that everytime this produces a 0 it should be 9 instead *smacks forehead again* :redface:

Thanks for giving the hints and not the solution! I would have looked and not bothered Smile I managed to almost solve it now as well, at least the start of the text is deciphered.
Solved it! Yay! How many months since the puzzle was posted?

By looking around in the forum it seems like the puzzle has been around since September last year.

There was a different puzzle on the website before this one, though.

RE: What hides between Shadow and Light?

Before Amnesia was revealed as the new game, there was a different homepage here:

http://www.nextfrictionalgame.com/

That page is empty now, but there used to be a tricky puzzle there to solve. It took almost a year to solve it.
