I generally agree about cheating. I mean, brute forcing your way to K'veer still doesn't give you the Path of the Shell fire ring in your Relto, so there's no real sense of accomplishment. I was just intrigued by the possibility of finding the correct code. Otherwise, I'm all for finding your own way through the game.

Like many brute-force problems, this problem is in the class of NP (and also in co-NP). After all, it's easy (i.e., solvable in polynomial time in terms of the input size) to see if a given code is correct or not, but finding the correct code takes a lot of time.

So if anyone would prove that P = NP, then finding the correct code becomes easy!

So what we really need is to prove that P != NP and then we can be assured that cheating isn't easy.
As a bonus, proving P != NP would award you $1 million, the so-called ! How awesome is that? :D

(With all the maths confusing people, I couldn't resist making it a little worse. :lol: ;) )
