In 1e, page 22, the roll is d100 a score equal to or greater than that listed allows the character to understand the use of the artifact. You cross index the Mental Resistance in the Left column with the Item Complexity in the Top row to obtain the required score.

It feels like you two are talking about different things... :?

"Diagram" puts me in mind of the old flow charts from Gamma World, which had arrows pointing you to different results as you went along.
