    Pro Level D: PROD

    				   PASSWORD ALGORITHM
    ______________________________________________________________________________
    
    The Adventures of Lolo 2 employs a simple password algorithm to determine the
    level at which you left off. Passwords contain four characters, and consist of
    two components:
    
    1. Primary Level Selector (PLS). This component determines whether you are on
    levels 0-15, 16-31, 32-47, or 48-50. Its value is determined by the first and
    third characters of the password.
    
    2. Secondary Level Selector (SLS). This component determines whether you are on
    level 0-15 of the current PLS group. Its value is determined by the second and
    fourth characters of the password.
    
    Both the PLS and the SLS use the same counting system, detailed below:
    
    +------------------------------------+
    | Table D.1: PLS/SLS Counting System |
    +------------------------------------+
    | 0: PP           |  8:  GG          |
    | 1: HK           |  15: KH          |
    | 2: QD           |  14: DQ          |
    | 3: VT           |  13: TV          |
    | 4: RJ           |  12: JR          |
    | 5: BM           |  11: MB          |
    | 6: LY           |  10: YL          |
    | 7: CZ           |  9:  ZC          |
    +-----------------+-------------------
    
    As you can see, the counting system is symmetrical around 8 (GG), with PP equal
    to 0. The implication is that this counting system is actually the aggregation
    of two instances of an even more basic counting system:
    
    +------------------------------------+
    | Table D.2: Basic Counting System   |
    +------------------------------------+
    | 0: P            |  8:  G           |
    | 1: H            |  9:  Z           |
    | 2: Q            |  10: Y           |
    | 3: V            |  11: M           |
    | 4: R            |  12: J           |
    | 5: B            |  13: T           |
    | 6: L            |  14: D           |
    | 7: C            |  15: K           |
    +-----------------+-------------------
    
    
    Both counting systems are used to determine a password. Note that, since these
    are the ONLY counting systems involved in determining a password, NO password
    for this game (with the exception of the "PRO" passwords) will EVER contain the 
    letters A, E, F, I, N, O, S, U, W, or X. 
    
    
    To determine the password for any level (0-50) that is part of the regular 
    game, use the following algorithm:
    
    1. Divide the desired level number by 16, noting the remainder.
    
    2. The PLS is the result of this calculation without the decimal component, and
    the SLS is the remainder.
    
    3. Using the PLS/SLS Counting System (Table D.1), determine the letters that
    represent the PLS and the SLS.
    
    4. If the SLS = 0 (PP), add one to the value of the second character of the PLS,
    using the Basic Counting System (Table D.2), with 15 (K) + 1 wrapping around to
    become 0 (P).
    
    5. The first and third characters of the password are the two characters that
    comprise the PLS (subject to Step 4). The second and fourth characters of the
    password are the two characters that comprise the SLS.
    
    
    Examples:
    
    A. Level 20 (Room 5.1)
        PLS = 1 (HK)
        SLS = 4 (RJ)
        --> Password = HRKJ
    
    B. Level 9 (Room 2.5)
        PLS = 0 (PP)
        SLS = 9 (ZC)
        --> Password = PZPC
    
    C. Level 32 (Room 7.3)
        PLS = 2 (QD)
        SLS = 0 (PP)
        PLS becomes QK by Step 4
        --> Password = QPKP
    
    D. Level 16 (Room 4.2)
        PLS = 1 (HK)
        SLS = 0 (PP)
        PLS becomes HP by Step 4
        --> Password = HPPP
        
    E. Level 214 (doesn't exist)
        PLS = 13 (TV)
        SLS = 6 (LY)
        --> Password = TLVY
