What am I doing wrong?

Hi.

So, I’m pretty sure that my decryption function works fine. But my submitted answers were all invalid.
Does anyone know what could be wrong with my method. I kinda ran out of ideas.

One of the input test data and its output generated with my function:

input: 42,54,61,48, ,49,61,37, ,60,41,42, ,39,54,57,44,57, ,42,47,47, ,56,44,47,49, ,59,47,41,50,58, ,43,47,49,57, ,39,57,44,57, ,39,54,37, ,42,54,57,37, ,61,49,47,48,55, ,61,56,42,57,44, ,61,59,44,47,43,43

output: THAN MAY BUT WHERE TOO FROM COULD SOME WERE WHY THEY AMONG AFTER ACROSS

I know the words are shuffled or they make no sense at all, but the decrypted text seems legit. So what else could I be doing wrong? Am I just too slow?

I don’t want to ruin anything so I describe how my program works in the spoilers..

I use python with pyautogui to automate the answering part of the challenge. The input data needs to be copyed to the terminal, then the program pastes the decrypted answer in the textarea and proceeds to submit it by tapping TAB and then ENTER.

Thanks for the answers in advance :)

Hello! Please note that the spoilet tags are visible by anyone, and many people would be happy to take a short cut, so be careful. As for your code, I think the answer is all lowercase, though I might be wrong

Yeah, I know. But I tried to not give away too much. But if someone wants an easy way out, that someone will find it…
I do not know. I am gonna check the challenge again and hopefully see if my decrypt method actually works.

Hi,
Indeed, in the example you put, the text should be in lowercase.
keep going on!

Hi all dear Challengers, I’m having a submitting problem too (or maybe wrong result). I would be very grateful, if I may send someone who already solved my Python code… in order to understand better what I’m missing. Many thanks in advance.
Sincerely - occasus
