|Congrats on completing the challenge. If you want to make a keygen for this challenge you will need to find the block that creates the serial. You can either, take that block and make a few changes to it and recompile it through a assembler; or sit down and rewrite it out in laymen terms in order to code it in your language of choice. I am, by no means, not an expert on asm but sitting there with the code and some references usually helps. If you have gotten this far with app cracking then you should have a few asm references available to you.|

|Well, if you understand the code as a whole, you can make a better and simpler keygen by using your languages functions and stuff like that.|
That said, you could port the code line by line, but you would need to understand exactly what part of code is doing what. IMO if you understand what each line's function is, it's easy to understand the code as a whole as well.
There is however a technique called code ripping which uses inline assembly in C++ code using the __asm keyword. That makes keygenning much easier to do if you don't understand the code. You can just copy the asm, modify it slightly and use it in your program.
