Hint (if you want one):

The letter substitutions are not "one-to-one", eg. a letter isn't usually encoded into the same letter multiple times.

  • $\begingroup$ @Joe, hard to say that without knowing the cipher. E.g. if it's something original then that wouldn't be an m p p (IMO). $\endgroup$ – A E Nov 25 '14 at 9:35

The cipher is a simple incremental cipher. Each character in the code is $L-n$ where $L$ is the numerical position of the letter in the alphabet and $n$ is the index of the character in the encrypted text.

I actually solved it by guessing the last line first, and then reverse-engineering that makes it quite obvious what the cipher is.

Working through the message, it decrypts as

I HOPE THIS PUZZLE IS NOT TOO HARD TO SOLVE
ONCE YOU GET THE FIRST FEW LETTERS, THE REST IS EASY
BUT IT IS NOT AS HARD AS IT SEEMS
GOOD LUCK!

It would be nice if you don't make it so so so long next time though ^_^

  • $\begingroup$ You got it! I didn't think that making it long would be a problem because I did the encoding using Python. Sorry! :) $\endgroup$ – kukac67 Nov 25 '14 at 18:42
