Need help

I'm confused about the "Rilian Click". What is the definition of Rilian Click? Where did it come from? Why is it necessary? I find it on freesweeper's event window and haven't got any explanation on the forum (by searching).

Can anyone explain it? thanks.

Re: Need help

Rilian click is when you, after making a chord by releasing the right mouse button, then release the left mouse button. It is called after Arbiter's author Rilian because in Arbiter versions prior to 0.45 this action counted as a left click (so if you made it above a closed cell, it was opened). As in original Winmine and other clones Rilian click is a no-op, this behavior of Arbiter caused quite heated discussions about whether such deviations may be allowed in an official clone.
Go IRC! (try mibbit)

Nice! Thank you cryslon, that helps!

BTW I have another question about freesweeper: when I was watching weijia's replay I noticed a guess click that was not shown on event window. Is my pattern knowledge wrong or is freesweeper not showing all guess event?

Re: Need help

Fun fact: If I had used an old arbiter version to play my 46->42 score, it would have been a last-second blast due to a rilian click: http://www.minesweeper.info/members/fil ... 301007.avf

You can see it in action by watching the replay on old arbiter versions. I was pretty shocked when I did that by accident once XD
Don't anthropomorphize computers - they don't like it.

Yeah, interesting.

Just checked your score history, in the link of 64.70 123, a'f' is missing so the link doesn't work.
