Su (version 3.0)

After a longer than expected wait, version 3.0 of Su is finally available. Download the latest version here.

  • Version 3.0 of Su adds numerous features to the program such as advanced options, and the ability to undo your most recent solve. The new features for version 3.0 include reorganized windows, to better handle the default appearance of the help and about screens, including fade effects for XP users (every program already fades in Vista). The program also cleans up the default save folder of My_Documents/Su if it detects that it is not being used. Additionally there are more keyboard shortcuts, and an option panel, to allow you alter parts of the default behavior, such as turning on or off the new error alerts that warn you against giving the program bad input. The program also remembers it’s location on the screen, and gives options for the pattern used for tabing through the boxes. The default tab order is horizontal, to change to reflect the default tab order in versions 1.5 and 2.0 change the tab order option to “boxes”.

    Former versions of Su are still available here. If you enjoyed this program also check out Ebscer Batch Updater and Desktop Running Back.

    Su (version 2.0)

    Version 2.0 of my Sudoku solver is now complete and available for download.

    Version 2 adds a variety of features, from the ability to save and load sudoku puzzles, better handling of whitespace, better handling of window sizes, use of keyboard shortcuts, a check for contradictions in input, and the use of graphical icons within the file. Overall usability has been greatly improved.

    A few ideas are still around for a version 3, such as the ability to “unsolve” and to keep track of if the current version has been saved or not. However, with less time on my hands it will probably be awhile before the next version is released.

    Su (version 1.5)

    The next version of the SuDoKu solver that I created is now finalized.

    Version 1.5 has further functionality over version 1.0 in that the solver is better and more advanced, the program doesn’t take as long to resolve partial solutions, and tabbing through the blanks now follows a logical order. It is still a windows only app, because it’s based on the .net framework.

    A start on version 2.0 is being begun. Version 2.0 is to feature a save/load option, and to further enhance the solving ability. Other features that version 2.0 may or may not support are keyboard shortcuts and the option to solve step by step. It will show up here when it’s available.
