Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. Two of my ID tests put the correct type on top and two put it in second place. Hill-climber got a practical solution without a crib, and I put in a crib with some obvious corrections and the hill-climber got the exact solution. Converging key search solved it without a crib. I’ll add a Caesar-shifted crib.

  1. It continues OZNUAMNZGZLOXYZ. My analyzer identified the correct type as #1 by a reasonable margin. My converging keys solver has mostly solved it on the 12th seed without a crib, enough so that I could find the quote online, but it is a long way from a full solution. I’m letting it run to see if it can improve.
