Hi,

We are looking for people to test a new application Ra100 has deployed - Sudoku solver. If you know to solve Sudoku and if you want to try our new application, please visit the following llink.

We need your feedback. If you find bugs, tell us about it in this forum. We also need some solving records to calculate mid-time, so please solve solve solve.

After the formal release we will publish a lot more puzzles every day, especially those with diagonals and overlapping, Latin Square and Jigsaw. (We don't care much about the common 9x9 Sudokus. They are too boring).

And of course, on August we will implement some features for our subscriber.

Thanks in advance!

I noticed this with the smaller puzzles but I believe it was happening on larger ones as well. Using the mouse, the detection window was forcing me to put in the value for the same square multiple times in a row even though I swear I was scrolling onto a new square. Maybe I was solving too fast but I couldn't find a consistent way to keep the detection window flowing. It was often stalling on the number that was most previously input. I think only after randomly shaking my mouse around did the detection window seem to become free again.

I did notice that if the keyboard is used to solve a puzzle this problem doesn't appear.

Here are some instructions to use the application:

To play the game simply place your mouse over a grid cell and type a number. You can use the keyboard arrows to move up/down left/right on the grid or - just move the mouse.

Left-click to open a sub-menu and select a number. The sub-menu also enables you to delete a number you placed (the eraser image).
Right-click to open the pencilmarks sub-menu.

The toolbar has the following options:
V (check). It has two tasks:
1 - You can check for errors while solving. However, each "check" reduces 1 point (penalty).
2 - Once you solved the puzzle completely you need to use the V (check) option to send your score to the server.

Clear - to clear the puzzle and start all over again.

Save - to keep your work.
Delete Save - to delete the saved record.

Zoom in/out

Undo/Redo

Pencilmarks - you can toggle between numbers and pencilmarks by clicking on the . (dot) key.

Hi!
I just tried a little... and I had a problem with the pencilmarks: If I have written "1 3 5" (for example), and I tried to erase "3", I had to erase all and type "1" and "5" new. Is there a possibility to erase only one number? That would be a wonderful thing, I think...

Hi,
when I select a theme by clicking on the tab, and then select a size, I get a list of puzzles of this size.
But how do I get back to the size-selection?
When I have solved some of the puzzles on the list, the back-button of the explorer sends me back to those puzzles instead of the main pages I came from.
By chance I found out that you can get back to the size selection by clicking on the tab again. But I would prefer a button "back to theme" on top of the puzzle list.

Can I find the rules of the non-standard-puzzles somewhere?

Thanks for everything,
Karin

I'm also having a problem where the mouse isn't where I think it is and I either inadvertently change something or put a number into a box I don't intend. It seems to be worse around the edges and particularly the corners. I also noticed something strange about the solve dates. Even though at the top right of the screen it says the date/time is Jul 29, 2011 10:45PM GMT, it is putting 7/30/11 as the solve date. Pretty nifty though if it thinks I'm going to solve the puzzle again tomorrow!

The date on the top right side of the screen is GMT. The solving datestamp is due to the server's time zone. It works the same for solving griddlers and triddlers. Sudoku isn't special for that matter.

I'm seeing the same thing that others are seeing, where the red border doesn't always move to the square that you click on, and I inadvertently change a square that I didn't want to.

Feature request for the pencil marks that I love on a Sudoku site that I frequent: Could you implement an auto-clear, where when you fill in a number, the appropriate pencil marks are cleared (for example, when you place a 2, all pencil marks for 2s in that row, column, etc. as per the rules of the puzzle get cleared). Like in the Sudoku site, this feature could be user selectable, but should default to the user's last setting.

Are these going to be available to non-subscribers once they go into release, and if so, what restrictions will be placed on them?

Puzzle 997 (a kakuro) has a 2x2 block at the top where 1 and 2 can be inverted.

To clarify, the block looks like this :

2 1

But it could also look like
2 1
1 2
and the solution would be valid.

Is there anyway to have the puzzle load at its maximum size? It loads way too small and pretty much anything lower than the current max is too hard to see, especially possibilities when marked as thus.

I assume most people who are doing these puzzles are very good at them but the mid-times do not appear at all realistic. I am not belittling other solvers capabilities or glorifying my own but I honestly feel something is not right with the mid-times. I think what it is, is that there is a flaw in the scoring that one can easily exploit by just clearing a puzzle once almost finished, memorize the numbers partially or even right them down, and start the puzzle and time over.

The mid-time is calculated as follows:
Once we have 5 solving records - you see the mid-time. However, since there are only 5, the time may seem unrealistic (too fast or too slow). The mid-time keeps changing until we have 100 solving records.

So, if you see new puzzles take into consideration that the mid-time is not accurate.

Hi,

I am confused what key is used for what action:

Switching between numbers and pencilmarks:
- key "." (on alphabetic part of keyboard)
- I found that also key "Delete"
- I found that also key "Delete" in numeric block but only if Numlock is OFF.
- Question: Why not also when Numlock is ON? It has no sense with Numlock OFF: I can't write numbers on numeric block in this case.
( Maybe is it due to keyboard language settings in the OS? )

Deleting pencilmarks or numbers:
- key "0" in most cases
- in Binary sudokus and Skyscrapers with parks is "0" used for numbers and marks, and no key for deleting of number/all pencilmarks exists?

It would be logical to use:
- key "Delete" (on alphabetic part of keyboard) to delete numbers/all pencilmarks
- key "Delete" (in numeric block of keyboard) to switch between numbers and pencilmarks
- key "," to switch between numbers and pencilmarks; to avoid issues with different keyboard language settings (desatinná čiarka vs. desatinná bodka)

What do you think?

Please fix it for Skyscrapers without parks. There is also possible to write "0"s now but there are no "0"s needed.

I would love an option to see al puzzles at the same time, as mentioned before,
Not by size, but an option to see all sizes, of one sort of puzzle.

Ans I love the binary puzzles, I have books of them at home,
But.... is the puzzles are square (8X8) ot (10x10) they are a lot more "pleasent" to solve..

Thanks for these updates, I love this expansion of the site..

Another tip, maybe for a new update, someday:

-mosaik puzzles...

-link-a-pix

But those are more griddler-like

Just a remark:

the Name of the Puzzle "Str8ts" is a trademark. I don't know if it is allowed to change the Name to "Straights".

Best regards.

Exactly, that's why we can't use the name "Str8ts" . We did not change the name, we gave different name to the same thing.

You don't use the name, but you use the puzzle-typ and the mechanic. And that's the problem... Please email them about this problem .

The law is very clear on that matter:
The idea (creating a certain type of puzzle) is not copyright protected. The content of is.
In other words, everyone can create their own griddler/sudoku/kakuro/straights etc. It is forbidden to take a ready product (images, solved puzzles/solutions).

As for the mechanism - if you meant the software to create those puzzles - we have our own product. It is not flawless, if you followed the forum, but thanks to our users we fix the bugs they find.

Okay, for the skyscrapers with parks (and I think another puzzle), if you hit zero, it enters a 0. So how do you delete what's in that square?

Use the Space bar.

I think, my remark has been missunderstood. You can of course create as many puzzles as you want from any type. But with a view to Str8ts/Streights
it is the question, which name to be used.
It is difficult to describe for me, I hope my example will make it easier to understand:
If I produce a brown lemonade, which tastes like Coca-Cola, and I want to sell it in red cans with the product-name "Cocaa-Colaa", I'll get also a problem. That is, what I mean.

Like all of these suggestions. I like those 2 puzzle types. And as for seeing all puzzles: I don't know about anyone else, but I solve my puzzles by average time, and seeing all of them at once would be very nice emoticon
