Post New Requests Here / The Incredible Machine solver
« on: December 23, 2008, 09:44 PM »
I always wanted to make a distributed computing project that would use brute force to find interesting solutions to puzzles from The Incredible Machine (

I found a Flash clone called The CCL Game:

There are 10 levels to brute force.

I made a .swf file client that can be distributed. It tests tile arrangements that my server sends it and reports back whether it was a solution. However, it isn't ready to be released as a distributed computing project because it isn't optimized or secured and my server can't handle the project.

Is there anyone here with experience in creating distributed computing projects who would be interested in helping me get this project running?

A funny approach would be randomly generating MIDI files, comparing their sound to the original song and evolving the best matches by recombination and mutation (Genetic algorithms). But probably this will take ages because the searching space is too big

Sounds like it would make a good distributed computing project. :)

I don't think it would be a problem to require that all sounds are the same format.

I don't have any specific examples. I just think it would be a cool program to experiment with. It would be interesting to see if it's possible to remake songs etc out of a set of sounds.

I guess you can use midi as an example. All of the wav to midi converters that are available now compare tones rather than sounds. All they find is the basic notes. But I bet you could convert the actual sound of the wav file to midi with a program that compares the sounds of all combinations of 128 notes on 128 instruments.

I was wondering: does sound have a dithering effect? Like would playing a really high note followed by a really low note equal a note in the middle?
