Hi, some days ago I completed my MineSweeper solver. http://www.wsdh.org/?minesweeper Please try it out and make your comments. I also wrote a screensaver playing MineSweeper. Do you known any other screensaver about this issue? Mathias.

nice work :)

solved all three skill levels in a second (although expert did lose a few times - im assuming because of those "impossible to know - so randomly pick" scenarios)

oj... put it on auto-mode for the expert level and got an "WinMineSlv.exe has
generated errors and will be closed by windows" after 10 seconds or so.
Happened twice.

And it definately has problems winning on expert lol (won 0/47) :)

I like it, now instead of playing it out of bordom i'll watch your solver play it! Trips up on expert a few times...but there again what can you expect its never surefire.

Thanx for the (both good and bad) replies. :)

You can't win all MineSweeper games, so my solver can't too.
Actually it does win 31.47% of expert games. I want to improve
that but I think there is a theoretical barrier at aprox. 32%
for Microsoft MineSweeper (depending of the algorithm it uses
to generate a game).



@Kitt3n: I suppose there is a problem in the interaction between my
solver and your MineSweeper application. Could you please tell me
the version of Windows and the version of MineSweeper you use?

I tested it on all OS and it worked fine everytime. Seems to be
a bug left. :(
