Couple of tweaks, tonight, but nothing major.
I tweaked the Doodle generator ( C ) to be a little less messy. It's still curving lines, but nowhere near as erratically. I might tweak it further, if it starts to get a bit "samey"
I also tweaked Target (D - The countdown numbers game) so that it solves the puzzles itself to ensure the targets are achievable.

...Still not happy with the maze generator!!

Oh, and to whoever was trying to get it to generate a layout with lowercase letters, those don't work, yet!! I'm leaving myself the lowercase for future expansion.
0 to 9 + A to Z + a to z = 62 different puzzle types.
Doubt I'll get to that, but ... *shrugs*

Couple of little things while your working on it... I'd like to see the puzzles centred on the page, I think that'll look better, and I think you'll get away without the solid black in word finder crossword things, maybe some light hatching or something... Save's on ink!

Good call on the crosshatch... ... wonder if I can get php to do that, though.
Hmm..

The none-centered "top aligned" nature of the puzzles was intentional, so that you have more of a scratchpad for scribbling ideas down. The crossword in particular can be a big of a bugger if you leap in and use up your letters.

Helen has suggested a little bit of spacing between the letters on the word searches as the font is a bit tricky to look at.

I need to look into better font options. I think. The current font is one of PHPs internal fonts, but it can apparently handle ttf's. Finding the right one, though, is going to be the hard part.

Tonight's updates.

I'm now using a .ttf font ( this one ), have updated the entire thing to be in a higher resolution (otherwise the point of using the neater font would have been lost!) and also upped the padding on the Lattice.
I've also added a crosshatch to the Crossed game's black squares.

Thoughts welcome.

OK, Foldapuz site is now up and running. I think!!

Foldapuz.com

It *should* work on most browsers. If you've no Javascript, you can't currently tweak it, though. I might add a second none-javascript edition later, if anyone complains.

Agreed. So the whole thing is randomly generated? You don't have to do anything yourself?

Really cool! Would you consider ading a link to an answers page for the previous days puzzles?

For games that have solutions, sure!
Only showing yesterday’s seems like a better idea. I’d considered having a spoiler page, but that seemed a bit silly.

Yesterday's Solutions is now on the bottom left of the site.
For the most part, that should work just fine, but if I do any significant changes to the ProcGen, the previous day's solutions will show up incorrectly!

I've noticed on one of todays crossed puzzles that a word has been completed automatically:-

"Cannonry"

Should that happen! hehehe

Actually... it does it on all of them:-

Seems a bit... Not right... Was that planned?

Perhaps I should remove a few letters from that, too. Yeah.
To be honest, I'm not 100% convinced on the actual words in the wordlist, and have been searching for something more .. um.. "real world words"!
The four-letter words are plucked from a separate list of top 1,500 most-used words, so I'm ok with them being chaotic, but the longer ones (both in the crossword and the anagrams) are sometimes a teensy bit /too/ obscure!!

Gave up trying to find a decent sized wordlist of frequently used words, for 8+ letter words.
They're either so big they include pretty much everything on the planet, or they're limited to about 500 words, which realistically isn't enough for the puzzles.
(Assuming a person has 8 "crossed" puzzles on their page, that's only 62 days before you hit repetition)

So, meh, whatever!! I've stripped letters from the version.
Tomorrow's puzzles will be harder as a result
In addition, I've tweaked the Number Target a little to make it more math'y! I found that it kept doing "n*1" in the solutions, which is never useful, so instead it now replaces n*1's with n+1's, resulting in a much wider variety of complicated puzzles.

Hurray for maths!!

I'm gonna be honest here, all this has gone straight over my head. I guess it's gonna play good all the same though.

Today's addition is a good old fashion Sudoku puzzle.

Finally got around to adding that Battleships game, for Dabz.
No idea how solvable they are, mind..

Getting back to Foldapuz, and managed to add two new games over the past couple of days.

Spent today trying to decide the best way to expand the limits of the url. I think I should probably aim for 2 characters per slot instead of just one, thus allowing for AxB values instead of just A..
I'll need to figure out a way to do that without breaking the old URLs, though...

Meanwhile, I half stripped out the puzzle drawing function, so that it can be used on its own, and each puzzle also now has its own cache. This should help make extra enhancements easier in the future.
