This program was designed to aid in making word puzzles. The authour publishes a childrens' magazine, and Ballistic helps in making custom crosswords, word searches and other word games.
You can use the pre-made wordlists or even a custom wordlist, and easily filter the list to match certain criteria. It doesn't generate puzzles or games, but you can use it to find words that will fit in your puzzles. You can easily find a word that matches any pattern.
I made this program for myself and have hosted it for a few people, but it has never been officially released. This is my first public mention of the program.
•Use any wordlist (simple text files)
•Comes with a collection of pre-made lists
•Reports the number of Matches
•Copy Results to the Clipboard
•Quick List-switching menu
•Quickly open the list in current text editor
•Full-featured GUI with lots of options
Update the word lists
Maybe create an installer.
Please visit the documentation page for more images
Just extract the zip file to a folder and run the exectuable.
There isn't any installer at this time.
Using the Application
A brief description of how a user will use the Application. What tips does a user need to get going?
Just exit the application and delete all the files.
The searches are faster if you disable the progressbar.
But the progressbar is fun.
Typoglycemiacize List is really slow for long lists.
If you stop the typoglycemiacize process midterm it won't save. I can fix that.
