Just a few notes

So, it seems no new bugs have appeared, so I'll probably release the bugfix next week. I want some extra time, since I am adding some minor scenes here and there (nothing too big, but I hope people will like them ^_^). I also have a good news for those who play the web version: I found someone willing to help me fix it, so people can look forward to it. It will take more time compared to the normal version, because we'll need to pass the files back and forth between us for him to fix things properly, and he has to work on it, so it's not going to come out right away, but it's still the best deal if you can't use the RAGS player for whatever reason. Other than that there isn't much else to say. The hotfix will probably go out in a few days, so you can look forward to it (there aren't too many bugs in this version, but if you encountered them, you'll probably be happy to see them gone). Until next week! ^_^


  1. Not specifically related to this, but I can't seem to solve the "sudoku" puzzle for the Darenzia quest on Matt's PC. First off, I'm assuming the nine numbers are 1-9, so not including 0? It says they don't repeat, so there's one of each of the numbers 1-9 in the puzzle? I thought I was solving it but I realized it wasn't working. Also I don't want to spoil anything for others so I won't post what I thought the solution would be... but regardless I'm stumped.

    1. I can give you the solution to the puzzle, no problem. so

      The numbers for each row are: 142, 986 and 573. Do let me know if you found another solution that fits the limits of the puzzle, because it might be possible there are actually multiple solutions and I didn't realize it when making the puzzle.

    2. With no repeats, 6 is 123, 7 is 124, 8 can be 125 or 134, 9 can be 126 or 135, the mid-range numbers can be made a lot of ways, 21 is 489 or 579, 22 is 589 or 679, 23 is 689 and 24 is 789. Start by looking for numbers near the ends of the range.
      In this case, 7 and 23 are both useful right away, as each one tells you exactly what digits are in that row: 124 in the top and 689 in the middle. That leaves 357 in the bottom.
      Of the columns, 19 and 11 are the largest and smallest totals. Take a look at the largest and smallest *possible* totals and compare them. The greatest column you can make is 497. That's 20, and you want 19, so the 19 column has to be 497-1, meaning 397, 487 or 496. The only one of those you can make is 487, so we've narrowed it down for the others. The smallest column you can make is 163. That's 10, and you want 11, so the 11 column has to be 163+1, meaning 263, 164 or 173. You can't make 164 or 173 because the 4 isn't in the bottom row and the 7 isn't in the middle row, so you're stuck with 263 to make your 11. That leaves 195 for your 15.

      Now go here and give yourself a headache:

    3. Yeah, that's the way. Basically, you start by the ones that have to be a certain way, and then you work your way to the solution from there, as he explained in detail. I like sudoku and kakuro to kill time, so I guess I couldn't properly evaluate how hard this would be to people who are not used to these kind of brain teasers (but it was still very easy, compared to some stuff I have solved :p).
