Kakuro

Postby Chingis » Tue Apr 02, 2024 5:08 pm

First of all, not the thread to complain in. Make your own. Secondly, some are genuinely unsolvable, this sucks, but they are hard to generate and I can't catch ALL the issues without player testing. The unsolvable ones should be somewhat rare, but I can also see how, if you're struggling with the kakuro already, it's hard to immediately spot that your one is unsolvable. There is no penalty for pressing f5 if you are stuck, and you will get a new one.

Well I'm too dumb for math games, so I asked AI which was even more confused than me. Then I googled for Kakuro solvers, and they all said my last 5 puzzles were unsolvable or had errors, so uh... how can I not complain? >:(

I mentioned earlier that I believe I came across some puzzles that were mathematically impossible, if I understood the rules correctly. I wasn't sure if these puzzles were randomly generated using something built in-house (i.e. by one of the gameside developers) or if they were all pre-made and chosen at random. If I come across any more that seem unsolvable I can take screenshots of them if that will help.

That's okay, I think I've tracked down the issue. I'll let you know when it's live on prod.

Next time an event happens, just use something similar (more or less) to the N-Day setup -_-

Ohhhhh.... I thought I was genuinely stupid after pondering some of the kakuros for ages and not understanding how they could be solvable.

Right, unsolvable kakuro should be much much more rare now.
