Re: Online video player

Can my replays on the site be shown without the name displayed below the board or maybe even be taken entirely off the site? This feature is currently not available. You can download the video to view it from the video playback page. I think you may have misunderstood what I wrote. My videos are cu...

Banned the alt account of the troll and removed a few recent replies because they didn't contribute anything to the discussion and only sought to further escalate things.

Re: Pro Minesweeper Discord

I'm not a big fan of Discord chats. It seems World of Minesweeper / minesweeper.online is the place with the most active Minesweeper chat these days. Would be cool to have some more msinfo legends on there.

Re: Larger squares on official versions

From what I've read in the chat on minesweeper.online most players there use larger cell sizes than 16px. Having an option to change the cell size would allow players who became good by playing over there to switch to an official clone without having to adjust to smaller cells. The more options for ...

I don't remember there being any public discussion when cryslon took over Arbiter development from rilian.

Congrats on beating my record. There are not many people who do or did endurance speedruns in Minesweeper and I'm pretty sure that no one else ever bothered with 100 games on Expert.

Re: Switch from NF to FL

Forget your IOE at full speed for a while and focus on your throughput (which is basically the ioe of all those clicks that weren't wasted). Try to keep your throughput as high as possisble, preferrably always above 0.8 or even 0.9. Looking at some of my games on youtube might give you a good idea o...

Re: Switch from NF to FL

How many mines are optimal on expert? This is impossible to answer. It depends on the board and the sweeper. My general rule of thumb is 1 mine per second. A bit lower, if the 3BV is low (sub130), a bit higher, if the 3BV is high (sup200), a bit lower, if your times are above 70s, a bit higher, if y...

Re: Switch from NF to FL

Therefore, flagging one mine and opening two fields with a chord is worse than opening them NF - you see the first square after the first click, and can plan accordingly. I disagree. With NF we have 2 mouseLeftDown and 2 mouseLeftUp events. With FL we have mouseRightDown, mouseLeftDown, mouseLeftUp...

Re: Minesweeper Super Challenge

First, in general, we wanted to collect your thoughts on whether the game will be simply too difficult to complete within 12 hours in its current form (262x718 board with 38,799 mines at expert level). If so, would it be better to increase the length of play-time or to reduce the difficulty of the ...

Re: Minesweeper Super Challenge

Here's another screenshot of a recently completed 60x118 board and a screenshot of one that I lost on the last 50-50 guess.

The first had 2 forced guesses: On the left edge in the middle and about 10 squares below the counters window.

Not sure how often I had to guess on the other board.

I registered, so hopefully will be selected. Imho, the most awesome version would be if they selected 10 players to co-operatively solve the board with unlimited attempts. It'd be much more exciting for viewers to watch, and give a greater chance of the board being completed. Still waiting to hear ...

I have one question for coders: is it possible to have several sweepers playing simultaneously? With 10 sweepers playing simultaneously board could be finished more than 90% within 60-70mins. 4 or 5 years ago there was a version called co-op minesweeper where up to 8 players could play the same boa...
