Again I'm coding...

Hey folks,
well at the moment I have some free time. No exams, the lectures are going to start not until middle of October and there are some problems with my study thesis. I cannot begin cause the HTX-Board (a special board to study the hypertransport bus) is not working properly, so this week seems to be idle too.
But not that bad. I came across a little game similar to sudoku and I decided to code a nice applet to play it. And of course even more: also a solver which gives all solutions to a quest (which is even finished and fully working) and a generator to create new games which has only one valid solution. This in fact is pretty more difficult to code - till now it takes in some cases nearly one minute to generate a quest which is sometimes not even solvable! Ok this tool I hacked in really short time without thinking about a clever algorithm so this is something I have to recode I think. The applet coding comes slowly to an end, here a screenshot from its current state:

As you see, I coded also some kind of lame visualization of the currently game. Well, that's not important for the game. It's more my first try of coding a simple wireframe 3D software rendering engine! Not that easy to code - you find only little information about camera and screen projection, but I succeeded :-) Let's see if I will also implement solid filled polygons...
So keep cool, I'm going to proceed with coding!

Its easy!

Just uninstall QuickPlay!

The other buttons will still work as the software for that is installed under the name HP Quick LAunch buttons.

So easy...And such a relieve.
