N.A.N.Y. 2014 Submission: Kyrathaba's Sudoku
« on: October 07, 2013, 12:54:38 PM »
My third and final (and most significant) contribution to this year's NANY.

A pretty advanced Sudoku generator/solver with multiple Undo/Redo and multiple difficulty levels. Details here.

Downloads so far: 207 as of 5/1/2014

I know a couple of soduko fans - can spread the word - might even convert me ;-)

I'd like to hear from people who solve a puzzle. Hint: unless you're really good at Sudoku, start out on the "Easy" setting. Maybe show screenshots of your solved puzzle.

Congratulations on making such a powerful program.

I have tested it with 13 puzzles from several sources and find the program fast.  If I can solve a puzzle, it takes me 5 to 10 minutes
 to do what the program does in 1 second.  Also, if I make a mistake that prevents me solving that puzzle.  Your program is self-correcting, I wish I could be.

Here is a good one for you

800000000
003600000
070090200
050007000
000045700
000100030
001000068
008500010
090000400

The zeros represent blank cells.  I can't fill in one cell using Plan A - slice and dice.  Neither can I fill in one cell by Plan Z -
examining the possibilities for each cell.  If anyone knows how to start this puzzle by just using a logical brain, I would like to hear from you.

The program solves it but takes longer than the usual standard puzzles - what can you expect when you give it a very very hard puzzle.
