Twisty Puzzles / Help with cracking these puzzle softwares
« Last post by ubersketch on November 19, 2018, 05:17:00 pm »
This website has two java applets (twisty Star, Magic 11 Cell), which are not supported anymore. Because of this, they do not work in the browser.
After some digging I managed to find these links which download the jars.
Can anyone help with this?
Also I made this Google Doc to organize information.

totally not malware
I made this group of cubing related software.
Since it's not downloaded a lot, it may appear suspicious to your antimalware software, but I can assure you there is no malware in here despite my interest in malware that you might realize after searching around my pages for a while.

This isn't the only zero layer game out there! There's langton ants, langton loops, and other cellular automata.

I question the validity of the fact that it was made with the blood of several extinct mammals since wooly mammoths died out at 1650 (although ivory from wooly mammoths still existed and were probably used), and aurochs went extinct in Europe in 1627, so it's unlikely any blood was available.
Darn, looking back, this is a pretty ambitious project.
Perhaps we should start by making a fairly sized variant and scale up from there.
Although I find some of the op pieces I came up with are pretty interesting.
Yeah, I was pretty busy with having fun with large numbers.
But I'm back since I read a certain article that I thought was pretty interesting.
Welcome back!
I can't think of any right now, but I'll look into it!
Anyways, so Iím back. My idea to surpass taikyoku didnít really work since we were going right to 50x50 rather than scaling up. So maybe we should take that approach.

Another thing is an idea I had in a dream, where I was playing chess but we all had 1 piece of each type.
Can anyone think up of a chess variant where 1 of every type of piece is present, but every piece has the same value in play.
