I'm sorry John,

I had forgotten that there was a PAs version of SP when I was replying to that post about a different version. I had not played it for a while till a few minutes ago.

Is it completely done? [no more work being done on it]

It would be great if we could print the games.


Sudoku: number size

Submitted by SandFish on November 3, 2006 - 9:26am

Don't have your CAPS LOCK on when entering numbers. Then entered numbers are tiny (about 1/16 normal size) and locate in the upper-left corner of the square. You don't have to restart the game to change it, just toggle off the CAPS LOCK and overtype the small numbers.

mark finished numbers --- sudoku code

Submitted by benst on September 12, 2006 - 2:24pm

when I play sudoku, I mark the finished numbers. So, it would be fine to have 9 buttons to mark the finished numbers. What do you think about it?

I'm searching for "sudoku code" ...
It would be fine to habe a function to copy a sudoku code to clipboard and send by mail to a friend -> so, he can play the same sudoku. What do you think about it?

SuDoKu's should be symmetrical; plus reiteration of other comments...

I was going to mention that I just noticed that the puzzles do not have a symmetrical distribution of pre-filled-in squares; which was, I thought, something that was common to all "SuDoKu" puzzles, and differentiates them from more general "Number Place" puzzles, which have the same requirement of having rows, columns, and subgrids having only one number from 1-9 (I've read it was something added by the Japanese) -- this is true of other sudokus in books I have, and those in the newspaper.

I also just noticed there's more than one solution to a hard puzzle I just finished. I see that this has already been brought up, and I don't mean to complain, just to give feedback.

Sudoku: Rubbish program

Submitted by Trevor Kelleher on September 7, 2006 - 5:15am

Was just playing it and got a puzzle where the last 10 block had no way for me to identify what numbers should go where.

infact, in the end it didn't matter i put the numbers in one way, the solver put it in another... both valid?

As a LOGIC puzzle, having more than one solution to a puzzle makes the whole thing a farce.

the orginal developer has closed all discussion on the topic claiming that puzzle books do the same.. funny i have yet to come across one!

the whole point of sudoku is that it is a solvable puzzle.
