Question 7780 sudoku game feedback

Please Login to Remove!

I'm completing the first version of a sudoku game that helps you solve sudoku problems.

Here is a descriptive link:

http://www.andrewopala.ca/sudokukraker.htm

Let me know if you would like to give me feedback on it.

Thanks

Just to clarify: do you begin with a blank grid, input a series of starting values, and then get probabilities for the remaining squares?

Or, does the software contain a set of puzzles and give you hints to help you solve them?

Yes the grid is open and you begin by entering a new Sudoku puzzle from some other source.

My first feedback! Thanks.

No OTA other than the link to the cod and the alx. Duplicated here:

I will make the alx more OTA friendly shortly

Thanks ...

I see ... they are not fully qualified resource locations, just relative paths ... I'll fix this shortly.

>Re: OTA is not working. The files open as plaintext:

It appears that my hosting service marks .jad mime types as "text/plain" rather than "text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor". I've brought it to their attention. I'll see if I can host these files on another server or will try to create a small PHP script that will return the proper mime type and download the jad properly until they change things from their end.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I will get this going as soon as I can.

No worries ... Who knows, by that time I may have stopped being lazy and installed it using the Desktop Client

I have tried on an emulator with MDS running ... this works. Could you please try on the device going through the browser. Thanks.

The software installed and runs fine. It's nice and simple to work with.

Found one bug; if I input a value, then press 0 to erase the value I receive "Uncaught exception: java.lang.ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException"

One question as well: what does the "Solve" menu item do? It doesn't appear to have any effect.

Initial feedback:

For easy-medium games it works very well and provides additional clues as each square is filled in.

For the more difficult puzzles I have gotten it to the point once or twice where no clues are available ... still, this is more an indication of the difficulty of the puzzle than the quality of the software.

Question: Can the software be adjusted so that clues are automatically applied once they are generated? This way, once a number of starting values have been input, the whole puzzle will solve itself.

I have added all to the list of ToDos. The "Solve" was meant to launch a cascade of hints turned to values turned to hints. This is not funcitoning yet.

Great! I will post more in this thread once more gets updated.

Suoku 0.9.1

Zero error is fixed and added a neat suggestion about inputing values and then moving to the next cell.

More stuff to do:
