Apply classic Sudoku rules : Each row, column and bold-outlined region must contain the digits 1-9 once.
In addition :
Furthermore, every Sum by X clue is crypted, thus every letter from A-J represents a digit from 0-9. Different letters represent different numbers. Letters in cells correspond to the digit in the cell. A ? can hold any value from 0-9.
You can find other Crypto sudokus I made here :
Lösungscode: Row 4, followed by column 6.

@Mosti_Mo Consider a 3x3 region with its cells. You can take the middle cell for example. If you place X in the middle of one box, X can no longer be placed in the middle of any other 3x3 box. This applies to each cell in 3x3 regions. http://www.cross-plus-a.com/fr/sudoku.htm#Sudoku-DG (The page may be in french, but the picture is here)
@marcmees The Sum by X variant often uses a pattern of shaded cells along the main diagonals (to form an X). Digits may repeat along the diagonals. It does leave shaded cells useless in some cases.

@Carrick22: what do you mean with "Offset/Disjoint Groups : No digit can appear in the same position in different 3x3 regions."? Can you provide an example please? thanks
