I keep running into the same problem and don’t know how to code let me know if you figure that part out
Same here, a mistake right near the beginning. I always assume I’m being a bit stupid and of course puzzle designers never make mistakes and so I’ve been happily banging my head away at this
I just solved the puzzle and my solution adds up, every number is correct. However, when i try to enter the code it says its incorrect
Same here. All adds up, but the solution seems incorrect.
Out of interest, has anyone solved this (manually) without guesswork? Is there a step-by-step solution you have to look for, or does it require trying out a few different fills, hoping they’re correct?
Solved it manually. Unfortunately, you have to make educated guesses and backtrack if you make a mistake. I had to backtrack about 5 times.
Are you sure that everything adds up, including:
thermometer bulbs (it can only start from the bulb)
When doing it manually, is there no option other than making educated guesses? I think there should be other options as well.
I solved it manually - no guessing involved - i had around 3 criteria i looked for everytime.
Kinda felt like sudoku after a while.
i dont want to give away to much - but try to look for spaces that are not allowed to remain first.
i would also like to see a coding solution, if anyone would like to share it with me. thought of using an array to solve it - with concrete identifiers for each field and then running some loops with conditions. i am not a big coding person - just a bit R for university.
the gamma where the 1s meet is incorrect - they could have any other space in their corresponing row / column. it is not mandatory that row 4 column 4 is a “solution space”
I came up with some rules that I followed, but still had to make some guesses. Maybe I was missing some specific rule. Nevertheless, it was fun.
Over halfway done, also not using geuss work, checking more then idividual rows helped me get further.
It took me 5 hours manually i don’t know how to code but was able to solve it based off of someone elses partially solved version in comments the 3 777 at the top being filled i had to figure out from that and a whole bunch of guessing until i got one that finally worked with no errors in the end after counting i had 1 letter off but was able to solve
Thank you. Turns out I had the grid right, but an alternate understanding of how to add up.
Wow, glad that helped. I guess it’s the one done in excel by me. I myself haven’t completed it yet. But progressed a lot from what you see in that image. Have to do it later. It’s already 1:30 AM here now.
Finally got it, with no errors, or guessing. Really hard one, but a nice challange!
Took 1.5-2.5 h
It took me about 3 hours to solve
When the puzzle is done. Can you show me the code you used? I’m having a hard time seeing it as a simple coding problem. Seems like you would have to program the game engine to solve this. As it isn’t a simple matrix problem.
Did anyone have trouble with colume #5 (with 7 spaves to fill)? I only found 6 free spaces, but the column requires 7…
Your mistake is crossing the 1 row and 1 column in paths. They don’t necessarily do that. Their position could be anywhere in the row or column respectively.
