15 Puzzle for Rainmeter

Post by balala »

Image Image Image Image

This is a very simple 15 Puzzle game, created as a Rainmeter skin. You can find the description of the game here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifteen_puzzle. This skin have a shuffler application, which respects the solvability criterium, described here: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/15Puzzle.html, so every game is solvable. I have created 10 images (one with numbers from 1 to 15 and 9 with diffrent images).
Please let me know your oppinion about this skin, or any bug if you discover one.

Really nice !!!

Didn't know anything about 15 puzzle. But now I like it and it's good for a little game in between.

2 little bugs:
- the shuffler.exe do nothing, nothing happens when I click on Shuffle ( the exe is activating, I can see it in the taskbar, so ??)
- sometimes I have 2 empty images

but that's not so wild, because when I switch the theme and switch back, then everything is okey again (and shuffled)

so thanks for sharing it :)

Hello, I'm glad you like this skin. About the bugs:
- you're sure that when you click to Shuffle button, nothing happens? Because the pieces should shuffle, look at them when you click to button. The Shuffler.exe don't show a window, it is a "silent" app, which just shuffle the pieces, without any message or window. In the taskbar it should appear just for a second, then it should close. Is it so?
- I never found 2 empty pieces if I just clicked to buttons or pieces. How they appeared?
- anytime you switch the theme the shuffler is activated, so the new theme is shuffled. If you switch back to the old theme, it will be in a diffrent status, then before.

Okey, I click on "Shuffle" -> nothing happens -> only when I click on the Right/Up/Left or Down piece of the empty piece, then it shuffled. But then I have mostly 2 empty pieces :D sometimes 1 empty piece and rarely 3 empty pieces
( and yes the Shuffler.exe comes for 1 second in the taskbar)

but that's not a big problem for me because this way works

OK, that's really a bug. The probblem is that I have the skins in a certain folder, and have created the Shuffler to work with that folder. But if you have the skins in a diffrent folder (and I'm sure you have), the Shuffler not works. Please let me know the path of the 15Puzzle folder in skins folder (eg D:\My Documents\Rainmeter\Skins\15Puzzle).
Sorry for this error.

It would be better if you could use a kind of #SKINSPATH#/#ROOTCONFIGPATH#/#CURRENTPATH# in your shuffler.exe, so it would work on everyone's pc. If it's possible.

I have corrected this issue and hope now it will work. The used path is: #SKINSPATH#15Puzzle, so if you put the 15Puzzle folder in the skin's folder, it will work (I hope). Please test it and let me now the situation.
