About Minesweeper Game Starting

Post by abiu » Tue Sep 22, 2009 3:08 am

I think a new style starting: when u click smiley or press F2, the game can give u a beginning that is AUTO , RANDOM, with Openning, instead manual first left click, and time counter also starts at once.
it is more fair than current version for player's beginner score ;)

nice suggestion, but 'unfortunately' it'd be cheating or just unfait towards current and historic sweepers scores on beginner

also i think it has already been realised in a few versions of minesweeper (minesperfect, hi-games, minesweeperlive)

and btw, imho beginner is not really that unfair - patience to wait for an easy board and eventually having to finish thousands of boards shouldn't be underrated (and still i wouldn't mind one day seeing all lucky 1s games removed from the rankings...)

I agree with [name removed], usually I don't play Beginner because it's quite pointless, but every time I want to get 1s, I get at least one in a few hours playing. And notice that only 1 of my 58 1s games was lucky clicking :D

I agree. It would give an unfair advantage, so an option like that wouldn't result in official records.

Imo, beginner doesn't mean anything anyway. But I am glad that I have a 1s :D , and that it wasn't a lucky solve :D
