(Found this topic text on my computer after the old forum crash)

I figured out a 16x16 windoku might just look like this:
Code: Select all
..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..;XX;XX;XX;XX;..
..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..

The 4x4 XX-blocks are extra groups in addition to the rows, columns and classical:) boxes.

Here's such a puzzle:

Code: Select all
..;..;02;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;03;..;01
..;..;06;..;..;09;..;..;03;..;..;..;..;10;16;..
..;..;..;..;15;03;..;14;..;..;05;..;..;..;07;..
..;..;..;..;01;..;..;..;..;..;..;04;15;..;..;..
07;02;..;..;..;..;..;10;..;..;04;..;..;..;..;..
09;..;..;..;13;06;..;..;..;..;..;10;..;..;02;..
..;13;11;04;..;..;..;..;..;12;..;07;03;..;..;..
15;..;..;..;12;05;..;..;..;..;08;..;..;..;..;..
..;16;..;06;..;..;15;..;04;..;..;01;..;..;..;..
02;..;..;..;..;..;13;..;..;08;..;..;..;..;12;..
..;..;08;11;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;16;..;..;06;..
..;..;..;12;..;..;..;..;09;..;..;..;07;..;..;11
..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;12;..;..;..
04;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;06;..;..;09;..;14;..;..
..;..;..;15;14;..;..;01;..;..;..;..;..;..;..;..
05;..;..;..;..;..;..;09;..;..;..;..;..;01;..;..

Note JSudoku will do windoku generically. However it only does it for symetrical grids. For a 3*4 the nearest equivalent is to lay out another set of cages 4*3.
