Im not saying that i don't want to use another known and tested algorithm, i just wanted to know the most noticables things i could improve this algorithm on.

In fact, i've found a simple aes-256 bits algorithm in c, and might include it in my own library later too.

 

What i meant is, unless a cryptographier tried to decript my files using my encryptor, which is nobody i know of in the remote area where i live, could crack it. Hell i've made it and couldn't even crack it given lots of rounds. But i get your point. The government would probably crack it fast enough...

 

The thing is, my goal with this code is more about speed than security, if im worried about security, then ill use a well known method in this case.

 

The only thing i ever cracked this way was a simple xor algorithm of jpeg files on a cd with each byte encoded using 1 pass and the same xored value everywhere haha.

After i've found the first 4-5 bytes it was rather easy... But then on another cd they used more round and/or more xored value and then i gived up. That was a long time ago though, like 15 years ago. That just about the level of security im after, something not too simple, but not too complicated too so it take a long time to encrypt, and can deter most noob attackers like me.
