Case sensitive? What about the non-alphabetic characters?

... as you say, taken literally the instructions don't make too much sense, must be something else going on....

I'd recommend figuring out the dimensions first

Have the game already but fun nevertheless.
Here's a nudge..

PS. I think I broke "itstoohard" in the process.

There must be some trick, i just tried eliminating all irrelevant characters and multiplying everything else according to the given examples. XD Should have figured its not that easy.
When will the GA end? Would you please reveal the solution after its over?

Ends in about 23 hours. Sure, I'll post a solution.

The pastebin says: factorization is dimensionality
Hint: Given the givens, what number could you possibly factorize?

PS: the answer is relatively small as numbers go. Definitely below 1,000,000 If you're planning to embark on an epic calculation that would result in a value much higher than that, try some other idea.

Thank you for the additional hint! I will try some more and see if that leads me somewhere!

I've cleared text from pastebin by removing non-letters characters, converted to numbers and multiplied them... the length of the result is 45345 numbers xD

Can u explain "factorization is dimensionality" in more detail, please? Me (and google) just can't translate it properly (my English knowledge is bad, i didn't learn it at school) :)

Every single character of that pastebin is valuable, I would not recommend 'clearing' anything.

In fact, the whole pastebin is one line of text, pastebin just tries to insert visual line-breaks. Downloading the pastebin raw as a text file and working with it in your own text editor might be a good first step.

Factorization:

Prime factorization or integer factorization of a number is breaking a number down into the set of prime numbers which multiply together to result in the original number

Dimensionality: number of dimensions and extents in each direction

Additional Hint for people who have trouble with the characters:

  • you can: post them on some gaming forum and ask the internet :)
  • you can: 寄 leaf

Fixed the link. Now the txt file is a download and the pastebin's title is the filename.

Thanks again for reporting! 🥰
