 Author: jaek  [ Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:47 am ] Post subject: bertoldo's 20180630 9x9 I have a solution to the puzzle as rendered. But only the 11+ at a1b1 shows as correct. Even the single cells flip to red when I enter the specified number - a 2 in e1 shows as incorrect.So, there's something about Italy that needs to be considered and used to modify the solution? hmmm.

But I noticed the cage numbers flipping to red, except for the 1 in g7. Also, the 6 in c8 causes the cage number to flip to red, but a 1 does not. Curiouser and curiouser...

 Author: ddarthez  [ Sat Jun 30, 2018 2:20 am ] Post subject: Another bug in user created puzzle. Hi Patrick,I think I have found a bug in a user created puzzle (30-06-2018).Almost all clues (except for a solitary cell with the clue '1') give a red colour when you fill them in. This applies to one cell clues (such as '2') as well. I think I have solved the puzzle, but the puzzle does not accept my solution. I could have made an error (the screen is filled with red coloured clues, so I could have missed it).

Maybe there is a clue that I missed with the reference to Italy and the world cup.I've also solved it, but my solution is not being accepted. I think the reference to the World Cup Is just an acknowledgement of the fact that they didn't qualify for the finals this time around. First time since 1958 that they haven't qualified. They lost 1-0 on aggregate to Sweden in the playoffs. I setting out the above details just in case it has any relevance to the solution, but I don't think it's a cryptic clue requiring some tweaking of the numbers. What seems more likely is that a pre-existing grid was used (in terms of the positioning of the cages) and the programming was not amended to reflect the different solutions.

Yes, sorry about that, I should have tested it.I immediately realized it was because of the order in which the cages were specified: it hasto be top to bottom, left to right.I don't specify this on the submission page for user created puzzles, so if the cages arein a more random order (as was the case for this one), the error checking breaks.. I'll fix this now.edit: this has been fixed. I'll suspend user-submitted puzzles for now until I have some betterautomatic error-checking software. Most puzzles go back and forth between me and the creator4 or more times until all the errors are ironed out...

Or does it need to be completely rewritten?
